To the castle!

December 12, 2018: : Paris, France, Proposal Story

After landing in Paris at 9 AM, we headed to pick up a rental car.  Cherie found the next clue waiting in the passenger’s seat. After 12 hours of flying, I drove us 4 and a half hours to Normandy. For those of you not in-the-know, the Disney movie “Tangled” has a castle that was inspired by  Mont St Michel. This structured, erected in the 14th century,  feels like it should be one of the wonders of the world. CherieRead More

Five days later, Cherie was at her office in a session. She received multiple texts from various friends and family.

The next morning, a clue appeared under the door, just like the first day. It was a bit ambiguous. Was there going to be another clue that day? Or was THAT clue the only clue? The clue said not to worry, so we headed out, planning on enjoying our day attempting to ride Avatar’s Flight of Passage (didn’t happen as the line was too long) and touring the world at Epcot. When we walked through Paris, Cherie was disappointed. SheRead More

A Magical Day

Cherie found a clue in her pocket after the Escape from Gringotts ride, on her seat on the train, in a Hippogriff’s nest, in the entrance to Diagon Alley, inside the box of a newly purchased wand, near the sorting hat, at the leaky cauldron, and while watching the castle light show. Highlights also included free butterbeer at lunch, riding the castle ride twice, playingRead More
