July 22 to August 13
|Debbie, Chelsea, Kimberly and myself went on a once in a lifetime
trip to Europe. We flew from LAX to Heathrow in United 1st Class
Suite. The girls did not know what seats we had until we boarded.
As you can see below, there is TONS OF ROOM!!! The only way to
fly. I used my 10 years of frequent flier miles to purchase the
tickets. After we landed the next day (July 23rd), we hopped onto
the Eurostar and went directly to Paris. There we watched the
finish of the Tour de France. Such a treat. You will find a
picture of the finish line on the Paris web page. On July 28th, we
got on the Rail Europe train for a 12 hour trip from Paris down to Rome.
What great views during the ride. The absolute highlight of the
entire trip occurred during our visit to Rome. We took a day trip
to Pompeii. The ruins are fantastic. On August 3rd we got
back on the train for an overnight trip back to Paris. Sleeping on
the train is a very interesting experience. Even though we had a
private car for the 4 of us, it was still very difficult to sleep.
On August 5th we went to Disneyland Paris. Such a great place.
August 7th traveled on the Eurostar heading back to London. There
we enjoyed the rest of our vacation. On August 13th, we flew back
home (1st Class Suite again).
here for a 4 minute video of us getting on the plane. The girls
were so surprised! Debbie and I went to Europe last year and flew
1st Class Suite then. Debbie already knew what to expect.
The girls, however, were in for the surprise of their life.

to learn about web site design. I am, however, a very motivated
amateur. I hope you my pictures of the trip. Click on the
