Today, was nonstop as we visited Disneyland Paris and then stopped on the way back for a dinner with family. It’s late and I’m exhausted, but managed to make a quick doodlewash of the simple little breakfast we’ve been enjoying each day here. This is one of the things I always miss, as getting a daily fresh baguette is just not feasible back home. The only thing missing is the little glass of clementine juice and cup of French press coffee from this tableau. Though it was a fun change of pace to visit Disneyland, I think I preferred the little bit of time each day we’ve normally had to just relax and enjoy our apartment here. But we did manage to have this little breakfast again today before heading out on our trip.
After looking forward to the Ratatouille ride for weeks, we were excited to finally arrive at Parc Disneyland and rushed straight to it, stopping just long enough to grab a quick photo.
It was cute and fun, but nothing really amazing in the end. It’s a ride with 3D glasses that’s meant to make you feel like you’re the size of a rat who’s rushing through a kitchen in order to meet your other rat friends for dinner. That’s really the extent of it, and there’s no real story. I guess I was thinking there would be a bit of a feeling like you’re being immersed in the movie, which is my favorite from Pixar. Though it didn’t live up to expectations it was still a fun day with absolutely perfect weather, so I had a blast!
I ate a little too much at dinner, because it was equally fabulous, so I’m feeling like I’m about to fall asleep and struggling to type this. Tomorrow morning, we’ll thankfully be able to move at a slower pace and not have to wake up so early to travel. With just two full days left here, there’s a lot to pack in before we leave. But as tired as I feel right now, I’m also extremely happy and have loved every minute of this trip. And I can go to sleep tonight thinking about those little things that make these trips so special. Saturday morning, I’m wondering if the baguette will taste better than ever, as I bid farewell to this city, enjoying my last little breakfast in Paris.
