Aaaaah this park ! I wanted so much to go there since the opening of the Harry Potter Park ! I loved the studios in London, mais là, be able to walk in replicas of the sets : Hogsmeade, Diagon Alley, Gringotts, Knockturn alley, Honey Dukes, 9 3/4 platform, the Hogwarts express, Hogwarts (and some rooms like Dumbledore's office, or the stairs with the tables talking to each other), Ollivanders shop, that of the Weasley brothers… And I forget.
We spent only a day in Orlando so I decided with the Amplitudes Agency (who invited us for this trip) to make rather Universal studios that seemed most feasible in so little time (Disneyworld is huge, It takes several days). And then Disneyland Parks I've seen several, Harry Potter ever ^^
We were staying at the Loews Sapphire Falls resort that is a Universal hotel. So we had the opportunity to go to the Park Harry Potter 1 h before the opening for the rest of the public. We were so excited that we ran almost in the Park to reach the “land” Harry Potter who was inside. Continue reading
This is the last trip of my vacation I wanted to tell you before returning to a programming more normal and also you talk finally a project I'm working on this year for you ^^
We had a short week with Lisa for this trip only (our two jobs still demand our presence) so it's been very fast. Everything has been arranged for us by the Amplitudes Agency with which they had composed this trip I had always dreamed (Miami, the Keys, Orlando).
Each place visited triggered a small detachment of jaw even when I least expect, I pushed the aaah and the Oooooh before each landscape. Everything was much more beautiful than I had imagined.
This summer, barely back from the Canada I jumped in the Thalys in the direction of the Belgian coast where the local tourist office ordered photos for their online communication.
I don't know why but I never imagined the seaside in Belgium. As I'm an uber nozzle in geo and I had never seen an image on their side I didn't have any idea of what to expect. But as I loved the 2 trips I had made in Flanders in Antwerp I ran headlong to this small Belgian coast which not only had in store finds.
First there is this small tram that runs along the coast, De Panne to Knokke and from which one sees a pretty landscape of sea to the rhythm of the stops. It's pretty cool because you can make its small market among all that each station to best, We're fairly quickly with a single small tram and it makes things pretty simple (especially since I had schedules on CityMaper that works perfectly there down).
And, wherever we go in Belgium there are these good mussels and chips, These good chocolates and these waffles do not have their same elsewhere in Europe and which justify them only moving. If it is to have the sea and more we all won ^^
My little favorite : Beach Bredene I found large and quiet, with its full of greenery and cafes surf atmosphere dunes. There are of course very nice beaches (that made me a little thinking about Normandy) cities in each station, but if he had to choose I recommend that.
De Haan is by far the city I preferred for my weekend. There are plenty of pretty half-timbered houses, brick colors, sublime buildings 1900. I took 3000 photographs of houses at least. And then the little park with its doves I have a little hypnotized, I found this great city pretty up to the smaller of the houses.
I really liked the city, but the small restaurant where we ate at the end of the pier in Blankenberge was really very nice and delicious. The boss told us about his soup of fish with hearts for the eyes and the atmosphere was super warm with all the tables and clocks to the walls. I ran headlong on their mussels House and it was a real delight.
Plus they serve the cutest chocolates of the Earth with the addition <3
I liked a lot the very different style but enough post industrial chic of the town of Nieuwpoort. And then if you push to the pier there is a beautiful big wheel (which my camera decided to remove the existence by accident T_T). It is in this town that I ate in the best fish of the corner restorant : the restaurant De Roos close to the tram station.
The western part of the city of Ostend on the side of the Spa, until the last station of the city tram was a great bike ride in front of the sea that I'd really love to do if I had more time. I've been in tram in the corner on the road to Nieuwpoort and bike people gave me good envy !
