A failed Surprise

Here is one fun fact about me: I don't like surprises. 
And no, I am not just saying it, I really mean it.

If there is one thing I have learned in my short life so far, is that you should never expect anything of anyone if you want to avoid a disappointment. That is a rule I live by.

So I genuinely don't expect others to give me anything or surprise me in any kind of a way.

Don't get me wrong, I do appreciate it when people put an effort into something that they think will make me happy and I like it when people do something special for me. But if you are planing on surprising me with something, then you better keep it a secret till the very last second because I absolutely don't like knowing that something is about to happen without knowing what exactly.

Like say you wanna throw me a surprise birthday party, then go for it.
BUT don't ever mention anything about it before it happens. No hints or clues like: 
XY: "Oh I can't wait to see your face on Friday!"
Me: "My face? On Friday? What? Why? What is happening on Friday?"
XY: "Nothing, I said nothing."

NO, you did not! And it is too late to pretend like nothing happened.
>.<

I will go crazy trying to figure out what this whole "surprise" is all about. And I will most probably set my expectations really really high and then end up being disappointed in the end...

Which brings me to this letter that I got today:



To be opened on December 25th. No name, no address whatsoever. The only thing I know is that it was posted from Bratislava on the 18th.

I have been trying to figure out who sent it to me for the past 7 hours without any luck. 

The first person I thought of was my boyfriend but like he pointed out to me, he doesn't know the exact address to my parent's place (or at least he didn't know until today). Also the only thing I managed by asking him about it is to make him suspicious and worried, as he is so overprotective of me and was obviously as confused about it as I was.

So I tried to think of all the people who live in BA and know my address. The list only contains two names of my close girlfriends and both said they didn't send me anything. I am as clueless as I was seven hours ago and the more I think about it, the less I like it.

See, this is why I don't like surprises! They make me paranoid and suspicious.
Not to mention crazy.

I guess that whoever sent this to me has only the best intentions in mind, but I'm afraid I will have to ruin the surprise and open it before the 25th, 'cause there is no way I will be able to wait another 29 hours going crazy like this.

And it is pretty much just a simple letter, no drugs or a bomb or anything else harmful, but I just don't have a good feeling about it, I really don't...

Update: March 14, 2015
Just realized that I never went back and explained who I got it from.
Turns out the letter was sent by Zuzka, my colleague, and we got a good laugh about the whole situation in the end :)

Dell Christmas Party ♡

Už som Vám tuším spomínala, že sme v práci mali začiatkom mesiaca Vianočný večierok, všakže? :) A spomenula som Vám už aj, že to bol jeden z najlepších večerov v mojom živote? :)

Tešila som sa naň ako malá už dávno predtým ako nám prišla oficiálna pozvánka, a keď nám potom naozaj prišla, tak som bez váhania tri sekundy na to potvrdila svoju účasť v domnení, že tak určite urobia všetci. Ach, ako veľmi som sa mýlila... Z môjho tímu sme tam nakoniec šli len tri, ja a dve Zuzky, plus ešte náš (dnes už bývalý) team leader. Chápem, že nie všetci chcú svoj voľný čas tráviť na firemnej akcii, ale aj tak mi na chvíľu bolo ľúto, že na mojom prvom firemnom večierku nebudú osoby, ktoré som si za posledné mesiace tak obľúbila.

Dodnes sa smejem na tom, ako sme si so Zuzkou hovorili, že o desiatej ideme určite domov a potom zrazu bolo pol jedenástej, jedenásť, pol dvanástej, atď. a Zuzka nie nie odísť z parketu, však Zuzi? :P Ja na tom tiež nesiem svoj podiel viny :D Zaujímalo by ma, kto mal ten úžasný nápad mať večierok vo štvrtok večer, keď v piatok ráno musí ísť človek potom do práce.

My so Zuzkou sme nakoniec odchádzali okolo jednej a to nás náš team leader nechcel pustiť, vraj kam by sme chodili, že noc je ešte mladá, alebo niečo na ten štýl :D Pozerám na neho, že: "Jurko, ja musím byť o ôsmej v práci, ráno sme na calloch len ja a Ľubka." A on na to, že: "Prosím Ťa, pokojne príď neskôr. Myslíš si, že ja budem v práci na ôsmu? Nebudem Vám kričať, že dievčatá máme tam callik a necháme ich spadnúť." :D Len som sa zasmiala, že či mi to dá aj písomne :D

For those that don't know, moja pracovná doba sa oficiálne začína o 8:00. Domov som v ten večer prišla asi o pol druhej, kým som šla spať boli dve a keď som si mala nastaviť budík na 6:20 kedy obyčajne vstávam, tak mi bolo jasné, že nevstanem ani keby som neviem ako chcela. Len tak medzi nami, v piatok ráno som nakoniec do práce prišla 8:45. So much for being a good girl :P

Ale tak stálo to za to. Aj napriek tomu, že sa nám z večere ušli už len zvyšky a až spätne z fotiek som zistila, čo sa vlastne podávalo, a že som domov išla o jednej v noci pešo a bosá, pretože po 18 hodinách v opätkoch to už v topánkach naozaj nešlo :D Kto už len v decembri chodí v noci bosý po vonku? Nikto. Alebo možno blázni? V tom prípade blázni a ja :D A potom sa čudujem, že som chorá, pche :D Len žartujem, s tým to nemôže mať nič spoločné keďže to už bolo dávno :)

Ako tak pozerám na oficiálny výber fotiek (a rovnako aj na zvyšné fotky, ku ktorým majú prístup len privilegované osoby, rozumej ja), tak zisťujem, že sa nachádzam na oveľa viacej fotkách, než som si pôvodne myslela :) Čím to asi tak bude :P *winks at Mr. Handsome Photographer* Tu je na ukážku zopár z tých slušnejších ;)


Me and my Suzilicious ♡

Marek z UK, Zuzka od nas, náš team leader Jurko, Lucka z UK, Suzi a ja :)

Po mojej pravici aj ľavici Zuzky z môjho tímu :D

Zmeska Italy, UK, 1DD a nášho CERka :)

Vedľa mňa v červenom moja nová team leaderka Ivet, ktorej som v ten večer robila účes ;)

A ešte posledná foto, ktorej predchádzala nasledovná story: 
Zuzka: "Poďme sa ešte odfotiť spolu na kresle!"
 Ja: "Zuzi, ja už sa nevládzem usmievať..." 
Mr. Handsome Photographer: "Prekrásne sa usmievaš." 
Zuzka: "Však? Nechceš jej číslo?" :D 


Čo dodať, moja wing lady bola v ten večer full in action :D
And what happened next? :)

Well, that's a secret I'll never tell ♡
xoxo

your Libra Girl :P

All I want for Christmas is... health ♡

Neviem ako Vy, ale ja som prvý deň svojej vianočnej dovolenky celý prespala. Od stredy som bola 3 dni na home office, lebo ma škrabalo v krku a pustila sa mi nádcha a kolegyne s team leaderkou mi prácu z domu doslova nanútili a už mi to postupne prechádzalo, lenže včera večer som potom 5 hodín cestovala vlakom domov na sviatky a tá cesta, resp. klíma vo vlaku ma úplne zničila :/

Po prebdenej noci som ráno skončila na pohotovosti a teraz namiesto stretávok s kamoškami ležím v posteli a snažím sa dať si dokopy žalúdok, aby som si mohla vziať všetky tie lieky, ktoré som ráno dostala. Po príchode od lekára som si totiž to dala antibiotikum na lačno a to mi spustilo nevoľnosť...  Ako keby mi nestačilo napuchnuté hrdlo, nádcha, teplota a krvácanie z nosa, všakže. To mám za to, že nepočúvam lekárov... "Jednu tabletku si dajte ráno po nemliečnych raňajkách." Keď ja som vôbec nebola hladná a nechcela som na ňu zabudnúť... :/

Oh well, shit happens. A to som si až dokým mi prišlo nevoľno hovorila, že deň to vyležím v posteli a bude dobre a potom ako som tak sedela v kúpeľni na zemi, neschopná vrátiť sa späť do postele, mi prišlo ľúto samej seba, že toto asi fakt nedám a môj optimizmus ma akosi opustil.

Tak som si na 10 minút poplakala a napísala všetkým blízkym, že mi nie je dobre a ruším všetky naše plány na najbližšie dni, posťažovala som sa komu sa dalo, čo som neurobila už ani neviem ako dlho a od únavy som niekedy okolo jednej poobede zaspala a zobudila sa pár minút pred ôsmou. Tomu hovorím produktívny deň :)

Pripomína mi to október a Paríž. Vtedy som tiež letela na dovolenku s kufrom plným antibiotík, pamätáte? :D Naozaj musím byť počas každej dovolenky chorá? Niekto asi poriadne skúša moju trpezlivosť ako tak pozerám :) Alebo to bude tým, že ničnerobenie neprospieva môjmu zdraviu :D Inak si to naozaj neviem vysvetliť :P

V každom prípade sa momentálne cítim lepšie ako ráno a keďže verím, že všetko zlé je na niečo dobré, tak rozmýšľam na čo je asi dobré toto všetko.... Zatiaľ mi napadá len jeden dôvod. Ticho. Je u nás doma úplne ticho. Žiadne hádky ani krik. Tak to tu pár dní pred Vianocami ešte nebolo :) Naši sú vždy v strese, že nemáme upratané, že nemajú nakúpené darčeky, že nie je napečené a milión iných zbytočností. Dnes tiež mali také pokusy a potom som sa im úplne bez hlasu snažila naznačiť, že mi praská hlava keď kričia, tak aby s tým prestali a oni naozaj prestali. Neuveriteľné.

Ak je moje zdravie cena, ktorú musím zaplatiť za Vianoce bez stresu, tak potom OK. 
S tým dokážem žiť :)

Tiež som od našich dostala predčasne svoj vianočný darček :D Kúpili mi mega fluffly biele pyžamo, ktoré má na kapucni niečo ako tváričku zajka ale cítim sa v tom skôr ako ovečka :D Napadlo im, že by sa mi asi hodilo už teraz keď som chorá lebo je teplé a hebké ♡ Predvčerom som akurát hovorila, že od našich určite dostanem niečo infantilné ako každý rok a vidíte, mala som pravdu :D Ale nesťažujem si, lebo je mi v ňom naozaj pohodlne :P

Už len pre tú srandu sa Vám v ňom pokúsim odfotiť. Gimme a second :D


Akurát pozerám, že to asi nebude ani zajko, ani ovečka ale asi skôr sova alebo žeby dáky hybrid??? :D

Práve sa naši vrátili domov od starkej a ocino mi priniesol živý stromček! ♡ V živote sme na Vianoce nemali živý stromček! Podľa nás všetkých totiž to príroda patrí do lesa ale aj tak som ho vždy chcela a som šťastná, že aspoň raz v živote zažijem ten pocit :) Pozerám, že táto moja choroba má zrazu hneď viac pozitív, ako keď som pred hodinou začala písať tento príspevok :)

Nakoniec to ešte budú tie najlepšie sviatky na svete a s odstupom času sa ešte budem smiať na tom, ako som sa tu dnes sťažovala pre hlúposti. Typically me :P

Decembrový update ♡

Ahojte zlatíčka moje ♡

Menovite Lenny, Muškátik a Jožko, lebo neviem o nikom inom kto číta tieto riadky, ale keby náhodou áno, tak to zlatíčko pokojne patrí aj ostatným :)

Len som Vám v krátkosti chcela povedať, že som ešte stále v predvianočnej nálade a mega šťastná a príliš zaneprázdnená na dlhé reči, ale o zopár noviniek sa s Vami predsa len podelím :)

Minulý týždeň vo štvrtok sme v práci mali Vianočný večierok, o ktorom Vám napíšem neskôr keď mi Mr. Handsome Photographer donesie fotky, zajtra sa chystáme na Vianočné trhy a budúci týždeň chcem usporiadať taký mini Vianočný večierok pre moje kolegyne u mňa na byte, takže ako vidíte december je samá vianočná akcia :D Klasika, no nie? A to ani nehovorím o tom, že v sobotu je Lucie :)

Inak tento rok som musela byť veľmi dobrá lebo som dostala až 3 Mikulášske balíčky a keď nezabudnem tak Vám zajtra v práci odfotím tú kopu sladkostí, ktorú škrečkujem v mojom pracovnom stole. Odpadnete :D

Čo mi pripomína, že by som si mala zbaliť zrkadlovku do kabelky skôr než na to zabudnem. Dnes sme sa dozvedeli, že náš team leader nám v piatok odchádza a na poslednú chvíľu mu chceme dať vyvolať aspoň našu spoločnú fotku, preto zajtra ráno organizujeme menšie fotenie a ja mám na starosti foťák, so if I screw up, everyone will be effed up, if you know what I mean :D
 
O čom som hovorila predtým? Oslavy, trhy, Vianoce... už ani neviem ale nevadí :) 

Ach áno, chcela som Vám spomenúť ešte 2 veci:

U nás v práci sa v tomto období organizujú rôzne dobročinné a charitatívne činnosti a jedným z nich je tzv. Stromček želaní, ktorý sme mali asi dva týždne vystavený vo vstupnej hale a z ktorého sme si mohli zobrať papierového snehuliaka so želaním detí z detského domova a splniť im toto želanie. Asi na základe cenovej relácie boli rozdelené medzi skupinové a individuálne darčeky. Mne sa zapáčilo želanie 17 ročnej Lucky, ktoré síce bolo v kategórii skupinového darčeka ale ako povedal kolega: "Ak si trúfaš, pokojne si ho vezmi sama", a tak nebolo o čom ;)

Darček som už dávno kúpila a odovzdala zodpovednej osobe v našej firme, ktorá zbiera všetky dačeky a bohužiaľ ho nemám odfotený, ale ak by Vás to zaujímalo, tak Lucka si želala nákupnú poukážku na oblečenie a laky na nechty a ja som jej k tomu pribalila ešte aj menšie prekvapenie, tak dúfam, že sa jej bude páčiť ♡ Neviem či nám potom deti odpíšu na naše odkazy ale ak áno, tak sa oň s Vami podelím :)

Vraj deti, ale som im dala :D Lucka má predsa sedemnásť, tak teda deti a mladé slečny a páni. Hneď je to lepšie :) Škoda, že neuvidím jej pohľad, keď si ho rozbalí, to mám na darovaní úplne najradšej, ale prežijem to :D

Nedelím sa s Vami o tento príbeh preto, aby som sa vystatovala, že "aha aká som úžasná, keď pomáham druhým". Túžila som po niečom takom už roky a obzvlášť v poslednej dobe, pretože mám až neuveriteľne veľké šťastie, hlavne čo sa financií týka a cítila som vnútornú potrebu odovzdať moje šťastie ďalej.

Nie, nevyhrala som milión v Športke, ale cítim sa ako keby áno :D Nedáva to zmysel, ja viem, ja viem, ale tak to skrátka cítim. Len pár ľudí vie o tom, že kade chodím nachádzam peniaze. Len tak na ulici. Neuveriteľné, ale je to tak :) Oplatí sa všade chodiť peši, čo Vám poviem :D

Začalo to pred odletom do Paríža kedy som po ceste do práce našla 10 eurovú bankovku, potom v Paríži som našla 5 eur v drobných, 20 eurovú bankovku v Disneylande pri hrade... naposledy to bola eurová minca na zastávke. Hovorím, že milión to nie je ale aj tak sa mi to zdá vyť viac než dosť.

Vrátila by som ich pôvodným majiteľom ale vypátrať ich by asi bola mission imspossible... a keďže si nemyslím, že patria mne a do toho všetkého prišiel E-Mail o Stromčeku želaní, pre mňa to bolo niečo ako znamenie :) Už len samotný fakt, že na ako prvé v zozname mi padol zrak na meno mojej menovkyne ♡ If that's not a sign, then I don't know what is.

Druhá vec, o ktorú som sa chcela podeliť, aby ste si nemysleli, že som príliš dobrá pre tento svet ako hovorí moja kolegyňa Natálka, tak len pre info som včera vo firemnej vianočnej lotérii vyhrala 10 eurovú poukážku na nákup v Auparku a totálne sebecky ju celú miniem len a len na seba! Ale že úplne celú a bez jedinej výčitky svedomia :P Tak a teraz naozaj neviem prečo som na Mikuláša dostala všetky tie balíčky :D Niekto by mi ich mal prísť skonfiškovať :P


Kým sa pustím do večerného čítania, ešte som mojej Lenny sľúbila, že jej pošlem foto adventného kalendárika / pohľadnice, ktorú som si od nej cez víkend našla v schránke, aby videla, čo sa skrýva pod jednotlivými okienkami so here you go, darling ♡

Moje prvé tohtoročné Vianočné pohľadnice: od Ging Ging z New Yorku a od Lenušky z Luxmburgu ♡

And this is what it looks like so far :)
I will post more christmasy updates soon, hopefully :)
*fingers crossed*

*singing* It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas ♡

I know that the first Advent Sunday is next week but I can't wait any longer and since today is the 24th of November and Christmas will be here in exactly a month, I am oficially giving myself permission to go full out Christmas crazy for the next four weeks :)

I just put a few christmasy decorations onto my bedside table, also bought new fairy lights for my bed and window over the weekend; sitting here in my Disney "Look Bambi, it's snowing!" pyjamas (which by the way are different from the ones I mentioned in my Disneyland post; yes yes I have two different Babmi-themed PJ sets), 'cause I just got a message from my best friend that it's snowing back home; got A Family Christmas by The Piano Guys and Christmas by Michael Bublé playing on repeat and I am currently wrapping Christmas present for my loved ones.

Yes, I did my Christmas shopping early this year :) Well, at least most of it :)

It looks like Christmas around me thanks to my fairy lights, 
it smells like Christmas thanks to the candles and a branch of a fir tree from my dear colleague Janka,
it sounds like Christmas thanks to Mr. Bubblé and The Piano Guys ♡
What more could I possibly ask for? :D

I guess what I'm trying to say is, that I am pretty much the happiest girl in the whole universe right now ♡

My tiny piece of heaven ♡
Going all DIY on my Christmas cards and awesome wrapping ideas this year :)


Got to go back to my gift wrapping, so I will talk to you more later but before I go, let me share a piece of my Christmas heaven with you ;) Have a good night, everyone ♡

It all started with a mouse ♥

Sitting here in my PJs with Disney's Babmi on them, I finally made some time to just sit down and finally write the post that all my friends have eagerly been waiting for :)

And since I got some complains from my loved ones from abroad that they don't speak Slovak and feel kind of left out, I will write this one in English.

Can I just say that I have spend the last 6 hours going over 400 photos I took that day, editing and making collages on my tiny slow netbook, which would crash every 10 minutes, so you guys better appreciate the effort I am putting into this, okay? :P

Ever since September 15th, the day I booked my flight to Paris, I wouldn't speak of anything else but going to Disneyland. I pretty much wanted to go there my whole life, but it wasn't until then, that I've realized that it might actually happen and you can't imagine how excited I was, especially since I was flying to Paris just two days after my birthday ♥ 

You can imagine what my response was every time Ivko asked me what I wanted to see in Paris. Disneyland, exactly. But he wasn't as excited as I was, or better said not at all... I think he was trying to avoid the topic thinking I might forget about it sooner or later, but nope, that just wasn't going to happen :) So once I've realized he didn't want to come with me I felt sad and disappointed 'cause he would claim how much he cares about me, but... He knew how much it meant to me and yet he wouldn't go...

Decisions, decisions... Do I go alone or not at all?
This was a tough one.

Let's be honest, going to an amusement park alone feels quite lonely. Plus I have never heard of anyone going to Disneyland alone. Have you?

In the end, it was thanks to my colleague Natálka, who wrote me a message on Monday evening, saying she is expecting me to post a lot of pictures from Disneyland the next day, which made me gather up enough courage to just go for it and make the most out of it along the way.

And that kids, is the story of how your mom made her dream come true :)

It all started at 10 am on Tuesday, October 21st when I arrived in Marne-la-Vallée, aka the eastern part of Paris where my Happy La La Land is located and saw this:



There are two parks in Marne-la-Vallée: Disneyland and Walt Disney Studios but one day just isn't  enough to see both. I didn't even manage to see everything in Disneyland and I've been there from the opening till the closing. It is quite huge, plus if you want to take all the rides, you spend quite a long time waiting in lines so it's just impossible to manage that in just 12 hours. Well, maybe if you buy the Fast Pass you can...

Anyways, as soon as I got my ticket, and posted some long awaited selfies for my colleagues to see (since the only place I could get free wifi was at the entrance), I went straight ahead past the lobby direction MY DREAMS ♥

Here is a map of the park for better visualisation:


As you can see it consists of 5 main parts:

Main Street U.S.A.
Discoveryland
Fantasyland
Adventureland
and Frontier

I didn't have enough time to discover Discoveryland (pun intended), but I have explored the other 4 parts thoroughly as you will have a chance to find out :)

The first part you basically have to walk by is

MAIN STREET U.S.A.

Since it was October, it is pretty self-explanatory that the whole park was decorated with lanterns, pumpkins and everything else connected to Halloween, especially when it comes to this part of the park. Also the music playing here was spooky :)


Gazebo in the middle of Town Square


Discovery Arcade


The Main Street is pretty much the part where you will find most of the shops and restaurants, but it is also the place where the Parade and Meet and Greets with the characters take place. Oh and this is also one of the stops for the Disneyland Railroad that can take you along the whole park, as well as the place where you can take Horse-Drawn Streetcars.

Disney Magic on Parade started later at 17:30 but since I already mentioned it, I might as well include some pics from the parade right here:




I must admit that I did tear up a little during the parade. I don't know whether it was the music or just the fact that I am an emotional crybaby, but it just happened. Also this wasn't the first of the last time I cried that day, but we'll get back to that later :D

Also, the pictures aren't as nice as I would hope them to be, so you may just watch this video instead:



The way from the Main Street leads right to the most dominant feature of the park 
- the Sleeping Beauty Castle  ♥ 

This is nothing to how crowded it was later in the evening...


Taken with my phone, thus the poor quality...
At this point I was like: I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS HAPPENING!

Also before I forget it, the weather was going crazy that day. It was cold, windy and rainy for the most part, a true sweater weather as people call it, but then the sun would come out and shine for like five minutes every two hours so I took these while I had the chance:





One can never have too many pictures with a princess castle :P
Moving from the outside to the actual inside, this is a small portion of what you can find in the castle:

This is pretty much what I imagine heaven to be like :D
More shops! Yup, that's right. Can I just take a moment to say that I stared at the lights on the ceilings for at least 30 seconds with my mouth open before I realized how ridiculous I must look like and then started laughing for no reason? I mean who does that? Nobody! Except for maybe crazy people and well, me :D Haha! Actually I should feel ashamed of myself... >.<

Also they had a makeover section in the castle and I wanted to dress up as a princess so badly, but they only have kids sizes, like how rude is that? As if you aren't allowed to be a princess once you turn 13 or something, tsk tsk. The biggest dress I could find was for 14-years-old and I was so tempted to actually try it on since I sometimes buy clothes from the kids sections anyways, but I didn't wanna feel like a creep. Plus they were sold for like 60 Euros, so yeah....

There is also a staircase inside, which takes you to the towers where you can read the story about Sleeping Beauty.
Also a shop inside the castle :)

Full-lenght mirror, an excuse for camwhoring :P

Cinderella

Once you walk out of the castle on the opposite side, you find yourself in the courtyard, which as it was Halloween season was turned into Maleficient's Court where you could meet & greet the villains :) They would come out for a couple of minutes every hour or so I believe and it was pretty much mission impossible to get a picture with them since they were all always surrounded by little kids and their parents, but I got to meet Gaston and as he was saying he is ''the most handsome man on earth'' so who else would I need, right? :P



By the way, there is a dungeon with a dragon under the castle called La Taniere du Dragon and I don't quite remember how I found the entrance to that one, but the point of the story is that magical things happen once you get lost at Disneyland, 'cause as some of you might now, I love dragons ♥

Moving on, the castle is something like an entrance to 

FANTASYLAND

aka my favorite part  ♥ 

I went to all the rides in Fantasyland, oh yes I did! I think that out of all the parts, this one is the most suitable one for small children, so that might be the reason why I love it so much :D That and the fact that it is pink and that princesses live here, hahaha :P

Here is a list of all the rides I went to:

1. Blanche-Neige et les Sept Nains - telling the story of Snow White :)
2. Les Voyages de Pinocchio - telling the story of Pinocchio :)
3. Le Carrousel de Lancelot - a good old fashioned carrousel :)
4. Peter Pan's Flight - the most magical ride of all in my opinion telling the story of Peter Pan ♥
5. Dumbo the Flying Elephant - I mean this is pretty explanatory: I flew on Dumbo :P
6. Alice's Curious Labyrinth - which isn't a ride really, since you walk there instead of sitting down and letting a boat, train, balloon or whatever else it is that you sit down on during the other rides :D
7. Mad Hatter's Tea Cups - here for example you twist and twirl in a cup :D
8. Casey Jr. le Petit Train du Cirque - a tiny train that takes you round the ride that follows next
9. Le Pays des Contes de Fées - a tiny boat that takes you along miniatures of all the Disney moovies :)
10. It's a Small World - a cruise, which takes you around miniatures of all the countries of the world :)

I didn't take pictures of all of them because especially the inside rides are quite dark and you don't wanna ruin your experience or the experience of other people around you with a flash and since they are all in motion it is pointless to take pictures without the flash. But here are some I did take pictures of :)

It's a Small World

Le Pays des Contes de Fées

Alice's Curious Labyrinth


Confusing, much? :)

Oh hi there Queen of Hearts and Fantasyland

You can pretty much tell that the sun has been shining again since I took a million pictures of myself in the maze :D

Mad Hatter's Tea Cups

Mad Hatter's Tea Cups at night :)

Peter Pan's Flight
That is Dumbo the Flying Elephant in the middle.
And here are some other things to see in Fantasyland:

A pizzeria and a restaurant :)


Another restaurant.


Toad Hall - this is where I went for lunch when it started raining :)

My super expensive lunch - 13 euros for a burger... >.<
I was quite lucky because I never had to wait more than 10 minutes for a ride, most of the time it was under 5 minutes, but the queues to meet the Disney characters always took hours. That is why I only picked to wait for one: a princess :)

And where do you go to when you want to meet a princess? The Princess Pavilion
At first I thought that I would get to see them all, but no, you only get to see one 'cause they all have their own small area with their own butler and photographer and you don't get to chose which one you get a chance to meet because it depends on which one is currently free, sigh.

But let's not be sad here, it was a nice experience nevertheless :)

I got a chance to meet Aurora, aka Sleeping Beauty herself, which is quite sweet actually 'cause Karlie calls me Aurora :) Not because of the princess but because of Aurora Borealis, as to her I am as special and rare as the northern light ♥  I have the best friends, I know I know :)


 There is no other way to describe Aurora as princess-like, as that is exactly what she was like :) That and shocked a little to see an adult coming to see her :D It must be quite weird to see an adult wanting to meet a princess, I admit that.

Speaking of princesses, most of friends call me Snow White because when it comes to appearance I believe I look like her the most. But when it comes to personality, I'd say I am 100% Rapunzel. Just think about it: she is cute (which is the first impression that most people get of me as I've been told), caring, childish, indecisive, she believes in the good in people and most of all, she spent most of her life daydreaming about lights. Now tell me that you don't think I am exactly like her :P

My next stop after Fantasyland was 

FRONTIERLAND

a more adventurous part :)

A bunch of decorations and Thunder Mesa Riverboat Landing
 I wanted to go on the boat so badly, but got unlucky 'cause it had to close down because of some technical issues as far as my French-speaking skills go... oh well.

So after the unsuccessful attempt to go on Thunder Mesa Riverboat Landing I got this stupid idea to go to Phantom Manor :D Me and a haunted mansion, I know what you are thinking: that just can't go right :D Well, guess what? It did! But I will admit that after a member of the staff asked us to gather in the middle and stay away from the walls I did say to myself that it was a terrible idea to come here :P It was okay, really :)

Phantom Manor


This one is especially for my flatmate who loves Tim Burton :)


Since the boat was closed down and I would have to queue over an hour for The Big Thunder Mountain which were the only two things I was interested in at Frontierland, I moved on to 

ADVENTURELAND

 Once again, I went to all the rides in this part :)
Actually there are only two of them:
1. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril
and 2. Pirates of the Carribbean,

but I went to all the other attractions that aren't defined as 'rides' as well :)

These are the Adventure Isle and a tree house called La Cabane des Robinson :)


Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril
Let me share a story here :) So, since I was in Adventureland I wanted to do something adventurous. The Indiana Jones ride looked quite 'safe' from this side, but once I actually was in the line for it, I saw a huge loop and I was like: ''Shit, shit, shit I can't go upside down! I have two bags with me!'' Plus I am quite scared of rollercoasters like this one and would never ever ever (!!!) let anyone persuade me going on one. But I was already in line and let me tell you something: once you are in line for something in Disneyland, there is NO WAY for you to go back, seriously. You just have to go with it.

So I went on the Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril ride and I screamed and screamed and laughed and just basically went through a million different emotions at once :D Once it was over I couldn't believe I did it, and didn't loose my bags, hahaha :D And this was the second time I started crying, in the middle of a hysterical laughter :D

While I was taking this photo, a nice guy offered to take a photo of me so...

... tadaaaaa! No more selfies, hahaha :D
You can tell that is was slowing getting dark at this point, so I went back to Fantasyland to go on some rides I mentioned above as I thought it would be less crowded now since it also got colder and I thought most of the families with the little kinds would be gone now.

 Also I had about two hours to kill before the big finale and like I already mentioned it was quite cold, so I went back to the Main Street and did some shopping as if paying 73 euros for the entrance ticket wasn't enough.... But hey,  at least I didn't buy a plushie! You all should be proud of me :P

Magical Main Street ♥




And then I went back to the Sleeping Beauty Castle around 9pm to get a good spot and waited there alone, in the cold for an hour to see the thing I was dreaming about seeing for I don't even know how long :)

Ladies and gentlemen, 

let me present you the most magical laser and water show
(and also the third and last time I cried at Disneyland that day)

DISNEY DREAMS ♥




Like Walt Disney would say: 

''If you can dream it, you can do it."

And I though I would feels so sad doing this on my own, but let me just tell you something: 

IT WAS THE BEST AND HAPPIEST DAY OF MY LIFE! 

And I would do it over and over again, even alone, for the rest of my life :)
