It's Paris Sweetheart -Day1

This was Day 1 of our trip in Paris. I know right, Paris. I could not believe it as well. The first time hubby told me that we're going to such beautiful city, my heart would love to jump out and hug him tight. I am so delighted with the whole trip except from the part that I got sick because of the cold weather. Good thing that was our last day. 

Disneyland Paris
My husband and I decided to maximize the use of our visa, so we took 6 days in Paris, exploring every corner of it as possible. We spent two days in Disneyland Paris and the rest around the city. 

Park City Hall
Day 1 was at Disneyland Park. It was a huge park with more or less 50 attractions. The entrance itself was very captivating. Since we bought all our tickets online, we didn't queued for a long time to get in. That's the convenience of have everything sorted out before heading somewhere. And if I may say, there are better offers and discounts when tickets are bought online. Information, brochures and bookings for restaurants and activities at Disneyland Paris can be made at the City Hall. 


Main Street Vehicles
I was so amazed with literally everything in the park just like this cute wagon. It can take you at some areas in the park. Sadly I never got the chance to try. But it's okay I'll get my chance the next time around (dreaming of getting back there).

What is Disneyland without the famous mascots? As you get in the park, a staff will hand over a programme for the day. You can also download the Disney app. There you'll see the schedules of the shows and mascot appearances at certain points. That I didn't missed. I actually have a booklet with the signatures of the Disney Characters I caught. I was a kid again for two days. Plenty of running and riding. Whew, so tiring. But hey it was so fun. Plus I got to do all that with my best mate (my sweetheart).  

Sleeping Beauty's Castle
The Sleeping Beauty Castle is so stunning. When you go inside, you'll come to recall the story os Sleeping Beauty through the colorful cathedral windows just like the one below. To b honest, I don't want to get out of that castle. I felt that I was a princess inside the castle. Love that feeling so much.

We spent half of our day riding not nearly half of the rides available there. The queue on every point/station was very long. Couldn't do something about it unless you'll avail of the Fastpass. That pass gives you the privilege of cutting down the queueing time at the most popular attractions. There's a kiosk near those attractions to get this park ticket.

With all that fun activities, we definitely got hungry. Although we brought something with us, still we were tempted to try what they serve there. I remember having a big serving of pizza with chips on the side. I think hubby had some pasta. Everything was consumed when I realized I didn't take pictures of the foods. It's okay,the important thing was I'm full and ready again for the next 6 hours or so.
 
Here's a good look of one of the restaurants. 
One of my favorite attraction was the thing called "It's a Small World". It's actually a cruise inside a some sort of Fantasyland which featured every culture of different countries (in miniature versions). It was so colorful inside, the lights and fixtures were amazing. It was like sailing around the world.

I can go on all day, telling you stories of our adventure at Disneyland, but I do not want to bore you. So I'll jump on the later part of that day. We checked the souvenir shops and found this Eiffel Tower with Stitch on it. As usual, stuffed toys are also available. We grabbed some for ourselves and for family and friends. But not much though because it's not cheap and we still have 4 days to explore Paris.

We got tired eventually, so we just sat at one corner while eating some cotton candies and sipping a cup of fizzy drinks. We didn't go back to our hotel yet because we waited for the most popular Disney Parade or what they called Disney Fantillusion.

I sincerely don't know where I got all the time to take pictures since there are plenty to enjoy that day. But I'm glad I did. Because looking at these pictures now made me say, "Thank you Lord for such a wonderful and magical holiday."

Colosseum: Gladiators' Battleground

I can't forget the moment I stepped on the ground of this historic Flavian Amphitheatre. I thought I'm hearing the loud voices of spectators around the arena whose watching gladiators fight for their lives.  Colosseum was constructed 70-72AD. It is found at the heart of Piazza del Colosseo (Rome, Italy). The seating capacity of this elliptical amphitheatre is 50,000 spectators. Imagine how big is the place? This place is one of the popular tourist spots in Rome. I suggest that if you plan to go there, book your tickets online. This is to avoid the long queue and the big disappointment of not getting inside.  Colosseum admission fee: Full ticket - €18.00 EU reduced ticket - €13.50 (available only for European citizens aged between 18 and 25)  EU complimentary ticket- €6.00 (available only for EU citizens aged above 65 and under 18) Opening hours: Mid February - mid March: 9 AM - 4.30 PM Mid March - end March: 9 AM - 5.00 PM End March - end August: 9 AM - 7.00 PM

Seeing the Other Side of the World

I've been living here in Ireland for nearly five years now. I never thought I will be given a chance to the other side of the world. When I decided to come with my husband here, I carried a special joy in my heart because I know my life will change according to God's will. 

Love and Marriage

Being married for more than thirteen years does not make me an expert to relationship and family. But it is certain that those years made me the better person I am now and I hope that it is the same with my husband. I personally believe that keeping your marriage healthy, sparkling and smooth boils down to open communication and plain understanding. Aside from these two factors, there are other ways to keep you tied up to the man or woman you say "I Do". According to  Merriam- Webster  Dictionary, "Marriage is  the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law". But it is actually more than that. Time, effort, love, affection, acceptance, faithfulness and sincerity goes with marriage. If you are just starting a wonderful married life and you want to keep it till you are both old, you may want to consider the following ways to keep your happy lives together. Put Jesus Christ in
