Disneyland Paris, February 2014 part1

 Last February (huh, yes, slowly catching up on my photo posts) I went to Disneyland Paris with my new camera. I took millions of photos. Time to share.
As I have gone there many times, I may have a tendency to take photos of unusual things ;)
This first part is all about Discovery Arcade.
There are 2 covered arcades in Disneyland Paris, located behind the shops and restaurants on Main Street. They are both really nice and a nice thought too as weather in Paris is rainy.

You probably now know why this appeals so much to me... steampunk before I even knew steampunk was ;)  The years 2000's could have looked so nice. I am glad we got rid of the corsets though.

Friday favorites

Huh...yes, I used to make those posts on wednesday ;) 

Gorgeous earrings by AnnaSiivonen on Etsy.  Her work is stunning! 

Cute tights by PetitChipompon also on Etsy. They are handprinted.

Some more dragonfly dishwares, this time by Azulado. The green and aqua mix is just perfect.

Squeeeeeeee R2D2 cat smartphone case. Love it, love it, love it ^_^ It is by Ecotule.

And my favorite video of the week...what if the Avengers had been made in the 70's
It's just so spot on. I think I would have loved it too back then (just wait till you see Thor...)

By the sea

 This year I spent my birthday weekend by the sea. It was unexpected and pretty dreamy! My cousin and her children and their doggie were there too.

Our bungalow is on the right, the blue /grey building.
 We stayed in a bungalow by the sea in Le Crotoy in the Baie de Somme in France. The weather was amazingly good, which I imagine doesn't happen that often there. The resort also had a pool, I didn't take photos but I went swimming :)

View from our terrace

It was pretty amazing to wake up to this...

There are still many Art Nouveau houses in Le Crotoy
Le Crotoy is a quiet little town, I guess it's busier during high season. There still are many Art Nouveau houses there, but most look pretty abandoned. I hope they were not bought by big companies hoping to destroy them once they're beyond repair...

It was simply amazing and wonderful and perfect to go for a walk on the beach at sunset.

A weekend in London

 I am like the worst blogger ever...or maybe I just have too much on my mind to write anything even remotely interesting...
In January I took a little trip to London. London is one of my favorite places on this planet. I used to go there all the time (in another lifetime, it seems now)...and quite honestly I can't remember the last time I went there...I am not even sure it was in this century O.o
But, well, London was waiting for me...with bright sunshine (!) and warm weather (!) in January.
That trip made me so happy. I hardly took any photos because I was so immersed in the whole experience.
 Some of my old "haunts" had gone, some were still there ... hello, vegetarian restaurant in Covent Garden...and oddly enough, the only Crocs store in London is almost right in front of it.
 I had tea at  Jamie Oliver's Diner, because I cannot NOT go to a dinosaur themed restaurant. Cheesecake was perfect and the place was not a disappointment. They even have some embroidery dino scenes on the walls (but my photos are too blurry).
I cannot think of any other towns where I enjoy walking aimlessly even half as much. Hopping on and off a bus , taking the tube...the tube, I even missed the tube...seeing all those familiar station names passing by...the peculiar smell of the London tube... Many people must have thought I was high, sitting there with a large dreamy smile on my face...
And getting room 42 at the hotel...cherry on the cake...
