Despite some less-than-stellar beginnings, this trip is off to a good start.
When I arrived at the Detroit Airport, Gate A54 was decorated with balloons and streamers. I had no idea what was going on, but I already liked it -- later on I was reminded that I was flying to Paris on Bastille Day and, to celebrate, they provided us cheeses, breads, and pastries.
Most of this day was unfortunately spent, however, in the Paris airport. My flight landed ridiculously early -- ...
... Inside the palace was beautiful, if only we had a bit more space to enjoy it. We were all glad to escape to the equally grandiose gardens!

Wednesday was always going to be a good day for the kids. Firstly it is a day off school and secondly it is Eurodisney day. Like Christmas Eve, the kids were way too excited and didn't get to sleep until about 11.30 at the earliest (well that's when Sal and I fell asleep, who knows when they did). We ...
