First four days Saint Antonin Noble Val

Our flight was very good and we were sooo tired but we have been enjoying beautiful warm sunny weather here in Saint Antonin Noble Val in South West France.
We have seen the ancient hill top village of Cordes Sur Ciel and went to an amazing chocolate and sugar museum. Our house is in Saint Antonin and we can walk everywhere. It is on a river and so pretty and old. Today (Sunday) was market day and we walked in the sun and bought amazing produce and watched street performers. We ate yummy food and enjoyed the wonderful old cobbled streets.

We saw a lot of Notre Dame as our apartment was a 5 min walk away, we saw a lot of the Eiffel Tower in all her grandness, We saw famous bridges(sailed under them, drove across and walked over them, we walked to Isle Saint Louis, played on playgrounds at Place de Vosges, saw heaps of very old buildings- Notre Dmae Cathedral was celebrating its 850th birthday!! We ate crepes, yummy fresh produce, bought some very cool things and rode on a double decker bus with no roof! Paris has heaps of very old carousels some of which a right near the Eiffel tower and are very pretty- We had so much fun!! We even met some new friends on a bus and had dinner and lunch with them. What a great holiday xx Curtis and Ruby.

After a very long drive from down the bottom of France we arrived in Paris and the next day we spent a fantastic day at Disneyland Paris. We caught the Metro and RER from our apartment which took us right into the gates of Disneyland. We went on amazing rides like runaway train, buzz light year, Temple of Peril , pirates of the Caribean, and Space mission. We got lost in the maze in Alice in Wonderland and saw the beautiful fairytale castle. So much to see and do and buy!! We were very tired at the end but it was so much fun. xx Ruby and Curtis
