Adventures in Disneyland

A week ago today (Sunday, July 13) Bert and I ventured to Disneyland with some of my colleagues.

A few observations:

I like It’s a Small World. And Space Mountain. I like that they’ve worked Johnny Depp into the Pirates of the Caribbean ride.

The Matterhorn isn’t wearing its age well. I got a little whiplash from being tossed around in the bobsled.

We got stuck on the Grizzly River Run. Real rafting is more fun.

Take note of what you are getting into before you board a ride. California Screamin is aptly named.

Berlin Day 8

Germany won their World Cup match tonight and the resulting celebration and fireworks made it feel like home. Happy Fourth of July!

Berlin Day 6

We spent the day exploring the neighborhood. Lots of shopping and partaking of the goodies in adorable cafés.

Berlin Day 5 (and the first day of my birthday month)

Today we wandered far afield thanks to google maps and public transportation. However the museums we worked so hard to get to were a little disappointing. Such is life.

Berlin Day 4

We went to see the Brandenburg Gate today and discovered the place where many Berliners were watching The World Cup. Very celebratory atmosphere!

Also found a very American men’s clothing shop with a cool old Harley inside.

Berlin Day 3

The Ishtar Gate of Babylon is stunning. Love the shades of blue and all the animals represented.

Really enjoyed Museum Island. Got to see the bust of Nefertiti (no pics allowed). The church on the River Spree reminds me of Paris.

Berlin Day 2

I’m still recovering from my work week in Paris so we aren’t doing much yet here in this beautiful city.

The neighborhood where we are staying is adorable and the top floor flat is lovely. We are enjoying exploring locally for now.

I will continue to post pics.
