    #GOlobe30tting Day 2

    Day 2 – Disneyland Paris

    Unfortunately, our accommodations didn’t work out. The place is just too crowded for 5 humans, 5 big maletas, 1 hand carry, and 5 handbags. Plus the host wasn’t very welcoming & had an attitude, so we were forced to look for a different accommodation. Very thankful that airbnb gave us a refund for the unused nights, heart-attack moment kay Kap, lol!

    June 22-26, 2016 | 1 Rue du Cygne Paris, Île-de-France 75001 France | +33 6 69 21 79 47
    4 nights total ₱32,921 (2 loft queen beds, sofa bed convertible to queen bed, toilet & bath, washing machine & dryer, kitchenette/dinette). Busy district with shops & restos within the area of 1st Arrondissement. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
    Host – Michael Et Joana

    Just below our new apartment is CB CLASSIC, a Nike reseller, naka tig-isa agad ang mga bagets! Hard-to-find shoes are suddenly not so hard to find anymore, and at just a slightly higher price than the retail store’s. Hindi O.A. ang presto kaya Kap-approved. Ate got an NMD at around 6K, and my Bae got a newly-released limited Stan Smith for also around the same price, yay!

    The new apartment is roomy, we have space to open our maletas, still move around, and sort our clothes, wheeeee! Maingay lang talaga kasi tapat ng kalsada, but that’s what makes the place super convenient. So keri nalang ang noise brigade.

    Kap is super happy too coz THERE’S RICE!! \m/ Just below our apartment are rows & rows of little shops & restaurants with rice meals in every cuisine imaginable at budget 10 euro/person or around 500 pesos. Ang dami nyang pagpipiliang ulam hahaha! I’m glad.

    Again, our adventures are made more memorable not because it’s a perfect holiday, but because of the not-so-funny times we can look back on & laugh at -in time, lol. This is certainly one of those moments. May iyakan blues, may panic moments kung saan kami lilipat agad-agad in a city we know nothing about, but in the end, everything always works out. #Blessup

    We spent the morning packing & moving to our new lodging. Yes, 3 flights down that narrow winding stairs again, and 3 flights up the other –kaloka. 1st day pa lang and our luggages seem to have grown overnight grabe. What to do??

    So yeah, that took better part of our morning, but I wasn’t gonna let it pull me down. It’s my wedding day, after all! ;) Kap & I will exchange vows in Disney Paris. 30 years from the time we met & fell in love, and 22 years from the time we got married. Woohoo!

    Disneyland Paris

    Marne-la-Vallée, France +33 1 60 30 60 53 

    Disneyland Paris, originally Euro Disney Resort, is an entertainment resort in Marne-la-Vallée, a new town located 32 km (20 miles) east of the centre of Paris, and is the most visited theme park in all of France and Europe.

    The resort covers 4,800 acres (19 km2) and encompasses two theme parks, several resort hotels, a shopping, dining, and entertainment complex, and a golf course, in addition to several additional recreational and entertainment venues.

    Disneyland Park is the original theme park of the complex, opening with the resort on 12 April 1992. A second theme park, Walt Disney Studios Park, opened in 2002. The resort is the second Disney park to open outside the United States, following the opening of the Tokyo Disney Resort in 1983.

    Magkakaiba man kami ng edad, we are all kids at heart. And Disneyland will always be one of the happiest places on earth for us. <3

    Our 3 kids all grew up watching Disney movies & hearing Disney tales. It’s as if we’re just visiting long lost friends. <3

    Of course the bride wore the veil with pride throughout. ;) Veil = 20 euros. Happiness = priceless.

    Because she hasn’t broken in her new pair of shoes yet, ayan, sinumpong ng kalyo! Poor Bae, thankfully her dad helped her the best he could by dressing & undressing & dressing her wounds over & over again kasi laging natatanggal ang band-aid, hay! Buti nalang at sorbang pasensyo si Kap. He loves us all so much talaga.

    Reportedly the number 1 drink in Disney, the Pineapple Whip! As always, we share everything hehe. One drink, 5 straws!

    No more wish on the genie to make because all my dreams already came true, I got the family I’ve always wanted, and so much more. <3

    I love these crazy moments. Tanggal lagi ang pagod. Never a dull moment with my GOppets.

    By late afternoon when the sun wasn’t shining as bright anymore, Ate found us a perfect & quiet spot to renew our vows. <3 Hindi pa kami naguumpisa, umiiyak na sya! Anubah! ;))

    Kaya ayan tuloy, nahawa na kami ni Kap! :P Cry me a river na rin!

    Reminiscing all those precious 30 years made us both teary. The ups & downs, the highs & lows. What’s important is we were together every step of the way. Kap promised to continue loving me, and to be loyal forevermore. What more can I ask for? Wala na, bumigay na talaga ako ahuhuhu!

    It’s a cheesy kind’a day. Renewal of vows with our teary firstborn officiating. The babyson & the bunso standing as witnesses. How much more intimate & special can it get? Thank you Honey for my fairy tale life. For building me my castle, and giving me a happy ever after. For filling our lives with 2 princesses & a prince charming, and making all my dreams come true. Thank you for making our home the happiest place on earth, and for being the king to my queen of hearts. I can’t even remember, or imagine, a life without you. You are my most favorite person in the world, and the past 30 years with you have been the happiest. Everyone else & everything else is just a bonus. If God will bless me with another 30 years with you, I won’t ask for anything more. If He can’t, then I ask that God takes me first, because I can’t live a day without you in it. And even after our story here on earth ends, I promise to keep looking for you in the afterlife so we can continue our love story & fullfill our happy ever after. I have found my forever in you. I love you not just in this lifetime, but for always. You are my forever. Thank you for making me believe that dreams do come true!

    As we’ve gotten considerably older, it’s only now I realized how tiring & draining theme parks are. We’ve taken the kids to Disney Cali, Disney Florida, Disney HK, with the first 2 being the biggest. Ewan ko paano kinaya ng powers namin ikutin with the 3 kids. Here in Disney Paris 1 hour in & we were already sooo tired. And the day is long, 9 pm the sun was still out. We had to wait until 11 (which was still pretty light out) for the fireworks to start.

    We only realized we were starving when we looked at our phone’s clock. Grabe 10 pm na pala & the day was still bright in Paris! Akala namin hapon pa lang. We hurriedly ate our fill & waited for another hour for the fireworks to start.

    Ibang level talaga ng pagod ang inabot namin. We just need to go to one more Disney theme park before we retire for good. Disney Sea nalang, ok na ako. Hindi na kaya ng powers namin ni Kap ang ganitong lakaran!!

    On to Day 3.. up next! I hope you’re also enjoying our adventure. ;)
