A few days ago we went to the waterfalls inside a mountain. They were going so fast! They were also so big. They were also so amazing and so cold. The waterfalls are mountain (alps) melted snow!


About a week ago we went paragliding. It was fun! I had a bit of a hard time with take off because my legs were too short! So we had to try it again. The next time Tom my pilot ran the part my legs were too short to run. Then we started flying and it was amazing! The scenery was spectacular, the trees were so tall and the water was so clear!!! It was great I felt like I was flying!!!

Ropes course

June 14, 2011
Today my family and I did a ropes course. It was my first time and it is very challenging but it was fun. Since I was tall enough I got to do the harder ones. If I were a wimp I would not have been able to do it. I freaked out a little bit on the wobbly suspension bridges. Other than that it was AWESOME! It was also really high! I thought I would fall a few times, but I knew I was safe. (Yes Gran Gran I was strapped in!) It was a bit nerve wracking when I had to move the caribeaner. It was sooooo fun. Last night we drove for hours looking for a hotel. All the ones we passed were either closed or full. Tovi and Dad decided to make everyone laugh by yelling "Ausfahrt!" when they saw it on a sign. Ausfahrt means exit in German. Finally after many hours of driving we came across a hostel called "Funny Farm". It was terrible but it was a bed so we spent the night there. Tomorrow we go parasailing.

A few days ago the Caytons arrived in Paris to join us to travel across Europe. We have seen lots of sights already and have gone to Disney Land which I will blog about later. We went all the way up Notre Dame. It was a LONG way up but it was worth it. ( by the way there was no elevator.) The view was amazing! I could see the Eiffel Tower, Invalides where Napoleon is buried. I could see Sacre Coeur, and the Paris opera house. It was amazing! Yesterday we went to Disney land. The Caytons are huge Disney fans! So we thought it might be fun to go to Disney in Paris with them. We rode lots of rides! We rode the Pirates of the Caribbean water ride (twice), it was much more fun the second time because the people in front worked really hard to make everyone get wet! We also rode peter pan's flight. It has always been one of my favorites. We also went through Alice's curious labyrinth. It turns out it was good we didn't ride any roller coasters, because I had my first migraine. My mom and dad had to carry me out of the park crying. I'm not going to go into details for those of you who are weak stomached but I bet you can guess what happened. Other than that it was a pretty good day.

Love Never Dies

A few nights ago in London my family went to see Love Never Dies.It is the sequel to Phantom of the Opera.  It was GREAT!! It turns out Andrew changed the first four scenes!! I'm not sure if the changes made it better or not. They changed the lyrics to some and took out a whole song! Afterward we did the same thing we did at every other musical. We went and got the cast's autographs. This time it took us a while to find the stage door. So some escaped (literally ESCAPED) before we got there.:( When we did get there Raoul escaped from the crowd on a bike. So did some other person. The first autograph I got was from Meg. She was really good in the performance. It turns out she was the understudy and it was her first time to play Meg! She was also REALLY nice! The next person (that didn't run away) who I wanted their autograph that came out was the Phantom. It turns out he was the understudy too!! He was also really really good and really really nice. Then the original Christine came out and I got her autograph as well!

Emma in Paris!!!

Today is my third day in Paris! We have already been to the main sights, such as: The Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, and the Arc de Triumphe. We are waiting to go to the Lourve til the Caytons get here. While I'm typing this it is saying every word is spelled wrong!!! I guess this computer is set to French. I only have an hour on the computer so I am making this short.

Phantom of the Opera

Last night my family and I went to go see Phantom with Caroline and her family. It was great! One of the best I've seen, but there were some changes in it. It had an amazing cast this time! If the show was REALLY good I always try to be the last one to stop clapping! Also at the end during the bows I was clapping so hard Christine smiled at me! She must've known I loved the show. After the play we decided to hang around the stage door for a while to see if they would come out fast. Scince it is my favorite play I REALLY wanted to get their autographs!!! It was also REALLY hard to recognise them!! Even using the program!!! It turns out TONS of them were wearing wigs. I only knew who Phantom, Christine, and Raoul were because every person there wanted to get their autographs. I hardly recognised the phantom without the wig and mask.SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!! My favorite part would have to be when the chandelier  fell it was right above us. We were in the fifth row center seats. It was so close I could touch it!!! Tonight we are going to see Love Never Dies. The sequel to Phantom. Today is my last full day in London then off to Paris!!!
