Thanks, yes, it's better and we have electricity and hot water now. Something made me giggle today. There is a car park where they have towed all the cars that were destroyed by the water and mud. They look like they were in a war zone. One bright spark has written 'wash me' with his finger on the rear window. It's a bit late for a car valeting. Laughing

Just had a freezing cold few days in Disneyland Paris.

Not quite the experience you get in Florida but it was a fun couple of days.

{{ Never been to a Disneyland, or in fact any sort of theme park type thing. Is it not just paying to stand in queues? }}

If you pick lesser known but well designed theme parks there can be little queuing and lots of fun. Two in America that are well worth it are Silver Dollar City in Arkansas - a mining town theme park, and Kenobles in Pennsylvania, which is best described as a wooded campground with roller coasters.

Disneyland used to be worth at least one visit since more expense has been poured into it than anywhere else, but now the prices reflect it and can't be so easily stomached.

I'm not on holiday but on a work visit to Huntsville Alabama, home of one of many NASA sites. They are dominated by NASA and refer to themselves as "Rocket City", and just in case you had any doubts:

I am just about to head out on my next adventure. Will provide pics and hopefully customary cinematic experience upon my return in mid-May.

I think it's somewhere he drove and he took his doggy. But that would be a hell of a drive this time of year.
