The Official "TPR In Europe" Ongoing TR Thread.

Postby robbalvey » Wed Jun 15, 2005 2:34 pm

Hey everyone!

Not too much to report today other than WE MADE IT!!!!

Started at LAX around 3pm on Tuesday, landed in London around noon on Wed, then flew into Paris around 6pm, and drove to our hotel just outside of Walibi Belgium where it is now 11:30pm.

Hopefully we'll be able to post a couple of pics from each day depending on how many hotels have internet wi-fi access. This hotel certainly does so you can expect a Walibi Belgium update tomorrow!

Anyway, as for today, here's a few pics to hold you over until we can get to the parks!

Joey got a "Beer Slushy" in London! Ok, the story here...since he is actually legal to drink in the UK, he ordered a beer. Assuming it would be warm, as most English beer seems to be, it came out half FROZEN!!!! WTF???

Nice report!

I didn't know there were Pizza Huts in Belgium! Did Elissa have a plain cheese pizza?

Now hurry up and get to France so you can visit a McDonald's and see what a big Mac is called! :D

Elissa should appreciate that all I could think of while looking at these was "It looks like they are on The Amazing Race". LOL I need a life.

Have a great time...will look forward to the updates.

We did pizza hut one day in Paris just because it was the only place we could find open. It was darn good.. better than any pizza hut I have ever had in the US!

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

I'd love to see Robb and Elissa on The Amazing Race, apart from the whole tear-the-relationship-apart portion of the show.
