We have all been counting down for the last six months or so... ever since we found out that Herbalife's annual 'Mark Hughes Bonus awards' was going to be in Paris this year.... and we can't believe it ,it is finally nearly time to go!
We didn't really need a better excuse to go away to Europe, and did Daryl really think he would get away with going on his own?

It is such a perfect opportunity for us, and is great timing for the kids. 
Because much later, Harrison would have been at College, and going away for a term would not have been possible.

 So the bags are nearly packed... and i think all the preparations have been completed.

I have really enjoyed booking the accomodation and researching the cities and searching for the apartments etc. Our travel agent, Katrina has been a great help pulling the wish list together and helping with the flights, cruise and train journeys.

 I would say to Daryl, "well, I am off to New York today", as that day I was going to be looking into that part of our trip.
 I feel like I have already got a taste of each place because of the amount of work that has been put in this far... and I am so excited!


Just as well I trialed the Phenergan , because it made Phoebe sleep soundly, but Harrison's body thought it was party time!!

 I got some of that 'wonder drug', in case they needed some help going to sleep on the really long plane journeys.
So, it will be great for Phoebe, but Harrison will just have to work through it if he can't sleep.

SO, we just have the final preparations to complete before the great adventure.

The kids are really excited about the trip....especially going to Disneyland, the cruise ( that was Harrison's idea in the first place), and trying all the different food. There will be so many new things for us all to experience.

 Daryl is looking forward to seeing some of the places we have seen in movies, as well as places I have spoken to him about... it is a dream come true for him.
And I am excited about revisiting some of the magical places, and seeing them thru the eyes of Harrison and Phoebe. As well as catching up with old friends and family.

it is going to be some wonderful for me to visit some places for the first time and getting amerced in the culture and colour... it is all too exciting...

So, welcome to our Blog... feel free to leave comments for us.... we will be thinking of you all..
