A Word To Winter

A word to Winter! Right! Winter is officially wrapped on the calendar since one month but in real this is another story. But this post is not about talking the current weather who is matching the season or not. A few days ago, I received the photo book about this past Winter. The moment where you open for the first time a photo book is the most exciting moment! Right! And yes, I haven’t always finished to create my annual photo book for 2020 but I already created a photo book of this Winter season 2020/2021. This Winter season was special in different ways. First, in France ski lifts haven’t open of all the season because of the Covid pandemic, second, we got so much snow even at home, third and last, I was so bad mentally this past Winter -I know now why – and I was not able to enjoy my favorite season in the right way. It was a really hard season! And when I think about it, it’s makes me sad because it’s my favorite season. Despite that ski lifts were closed this season because of the pandemic, we have managed to travel in the mountains like even. It’s started with the French Alps for my birthday and Christmas (it was the first time that I travel for my birthday and that I saw a white Christmas), later in January we have took a little staycation in the mountains near my house where magic carpets were open and I was able to skiing on one slope. It’s although after this trip that I started slowly to understand what was wrong this past year. But the week before this trip, we got crazy among of snow the biggest in 15 years with 30 cm at home during one week. It was crazy and amazing! And later again in February we got snow and crazy usual cold temperatures and even early April we got a few snowflakes. This season was crazy full in snow! It was a hard part also to have so much snow and do not be able to skiing, because the previous season was already a hard and short ski season because we got some crazy lack of snow. Well! I tried to take advantage do not be able to skiing, to take more snow photography because usually I took not a lot of snow photos because I’m skiing. Between my bad mental health and the among of photos with snow this season. I had the want to create a special Winter season photo book. It’s the first time that I’m doing it! I want to tell thank you to the Winter season for this crazy snowy season. I was not able to enjoy it in the moment because of my mental health. But thank you to this season. Aside, it’s also during this season that I finally understood why I felt in a mental breakdown since months and it’s probably at this day, an of the hardest part but maybe the most important part for starting really my Complex PTSD healing also. It was a multiple emotional season! Right! I had the want to document it in a photo book! I placed the photos by trips, I wanted to document each trips and his photos individually but in the same photo book. I have placed them in the order, from my trip for my birthday and christmas, follow by the snow at home and my last trip in the ski resort near my home. At the end of the photo book, I written my final thoughts and feelings about this Winter season. Let’s a little peek inside this Winter season photo book! Now! Next stop, finish to create my annual photo book of 2020. But my goal is to finish it before that I can go on some trips to Disneyland Paris. Right! I have a little of time again! No, more seriously, I want really to finish it before go back to Disneyland Paris if not after I could be submerged by new photos took there and not have finished with my last year photos. Right! Thanks for stopping by!

Disney Quotes Book

Here we go again! It’s official, friday Disneyland Paris has announced that they couldn’t open like planned on April 2, because any restrictions could be lifted before mid-April in France. And in more, Disneyland Paris couldn’t opens during that there is some travel restrictions in Europe. It’s now the third times since this closure on October 29, 2020 that Disneyland Paris has to delays the reopening because of the French gouvernment restrictions. In this way, this time they chosen do not place another new date of reopening. They could give informations on a reopening date when the French gouvernment could tell more informations about lifting restrictions, one thing who doesn’t currently. The president of Disneyland Paris tells be optimist about a reopening soon! In reality, I feel pretty peaceful about these news. Right! It was excepted! But also since that I have understand why I felt so bad these past months and what the pandemic and lockdowns bring me in reality on my mental health and Complex PTSD. I feel better about this new reopening delays. What I understand recently make me currently feeling overwhelmed and I’m honest that I could not feel good to go to Disneyland Paris, if it will have reopened on April 2. I’m not ready! I’m currently too much overwhelmed! Right! I hope that Disneyland Paris could be able to reopening before July like even, because I miss the park. But I was not ready to go back in the next weeks, I’m sad that it’s once again delayed and the hardest part it’s do not have of new date now, but I’m feel pretty peaceful inside me with this new! Right! In the beginning of the month, on a therapy side, I created me a special photo book. I’m feel currently overwhelmed and hopeless and I remembered that a few times ago, when I felt hopeless Disney quotes has helped me a lot. I realized that the fact of my current Instagram break I was less exposed to read Disney quotes daily. I think, it was not a good thing! But it was unthinkable that I stop my Instagram break to look in this way more Disney quotes. I finally chosen to create a little book, where I could place my favorite Disney quotes, and accompanied of a few of my favorites photos took in Disneyland Paris. When I received it at home, I feel happy about it! For this project, I used the Little Moments Photo Book on PhotoBox. I wanted something of little that I can watch and have next to me multiple times in the days, when I need it. I wanted a small size. And I felt immediately in love with the Little Moments Photo Book on PhotoBox. It’s square and small with 13cm. It was perfect. After to have pick up the Disney quotes that I wanted to place in the photo book, I have pick one design in two colors to create on Canva. In first, I just wanted to place these Disney quotes on every pages. But! I finally chosen to add some photos. To see photos of my past trips where I had good times, I thought it’s could to have more impact when I could read the quotes because I feel depressed or hopeless. I don’t wanted a big book! Right! I picked up the size with 24 pages. I keep the same placement order in all the photo book. I placed the photos on the left pages and the design quotes on the right, except in the middle of the book on four pages in the row, I placed only quotes. The pages are 250 gram paper with gloss finish and it’s absolutely amazing. I loved touching them! A little peek inside it! Hope that it’s could be a bit helpful to me in these current times! Thanks for stopping by!

Week 5-8 Photography Challenge

It’s time to share in a post the last few weeks of my weekly photography challenge! Well! If yesterday I was a bit more positive about my monthly box and that I have managed to continue it despite my mental breakdown who continually hits me. About my weekly photography challenge, it’s less positive. These February weeks were pretty hard to stay in the mind of my weekly photography challenge. I tried and I have done what I was able to do! But! During the weeks I have often forget about my photography challenge, despite that I have it in highlight on my phone home screen. I worked on each theme at the last minutes, at the end of the weeks. And I was pretty not inspired! Right! But, let’s sharing and document what I have done! Even if it was not big, I have managed to take once one photo in each theme! A little remember of the rules. +Pick up one camera. (my DSLR or mirrorless camera, not only my phone). +Pick up the theme of the week. Find every week themes here. +Work each week with the theme by taking at least one photo on this theme during the week. WEEK 5: LIFESTYLE About lifestyle, my current every day life clothes. WEEK 6: WINTER The cool thing is that the Winter theme is happened just on the week where it’s has snowed at home in February. But, the not cool thing is that this Winter season, with all the snow and no ski lifts open I spend a lot of time to take photos. And I had no real new inspirations for this Winter theme. Snow prints is really the only thing who inspired me. WEEK 7: WARMTH From Winter to Warmth theme in one week, from -15 degrees Celsius to 17 degrees Celsius temperatures at home. On the second week of February, we had super rare cold temperatures, and I live in a place where it’s cold in Winter. And the following week, we got some super rare spring weather. It was spring weather! I went outside in the backyard in sweater and I was not cold. It’s crazy, it’s never so hot for February, and again less after a week of -15 degrees Celsius. But I was not mad about this weather! I’m not a hot weather lover, I usually hate even the hot weather, but it was pretty good. It’s warmed up my heart! And my favorite about this weather was the sun reflections. Right! I tried to translate it in one photo, even if it’s not exceptional! WEEK 8: RULE OF THIRDS Using rule of thirds on a favorite daily activity of season. Hot cocoa in afternoon. No more inspirations! Well! That wraps this photo challenge post, it was not one good month to be inspired to take photos. Maybe also because of my Instagram break and I don’t look on inspirational photos. But I tried to make it as I was able to do it. Thanks for stopping by! You can find the Week 1-4 photos, here.

Disneyland Paris Photo Book 2020 Vol. 3

Here we go! I’m sharing the last and final photo book from Disneyland Paris in 2020. I previously shared the photo books Vol 1. and Vol 2. of my Disneyland Paris trips in 2020. Today, I’m sharing the last and Vol 3. It’s make me a bit sad that it’s the last post about these photo books, maybe because this last photo book includes my last trip since months and for months with this second closure who gets longer and with Disneyland Paris reopening who has been delayed at April 2, 2021. And again it’s not sure. Ok! It’s maybe for these reasons that it’s make me sad! But here is a little peek inside the photo book! This photo book Vol 3. including my trips in September and October. For this last Disneyland Paris 2020 photo book, at the final pages I shared a recap and overview of 2020 at Disneyland Paris, including my favorites photos that I took, what I loved the more about before and after the Covid measures. And some very final thoughts! To read more about my 2020 review at Disneyland Paris, you can check this post here where I talk about more. That wraps!

Week 1-4 Photography Challenge

It’s time to sharing in a post, the first weeks of my new 2021 photography challenge! If you missed my post where I talked about here, in 2021 I launched myself a weekly photography challenge. The goal principal of this challenge is do not spend long time without to pick up my camera particularly when I’m at home because of Covid. In 2020, with the different long and stricts lockdowns in France, I spent months without pick up my camera in the hands because at home I was literally not motivated. But it was really not a good thing! It’s on this way that I chosen to start a weekly photography challenge. A little remember of the rules. +Pick up one camera. (my DSLR or mirrorless camera, not only my phone). +Pick up the theme of the week. Find every week themes here. +Work each week with the theme by taking at least one photo on this theme during the week. The idea was also to share the photos on Instagram, what I have done in January in my Instagram stories but in the next weeks, I couldn’t do it because I took one month Instagram break because of my mental breakdown. Right! Let’s sharing the photos that I took for the themes of the past four weeks. WEEK ONE: SELF-PORTRAIT First photo: The first photo has been took in the mind to document my goal to read one book, one month this year. Second photo: The second photo has been took during that it was snowing outside at home. These last weeks, I discovered that in more loving the snow, watching the snowflakes fall down outside has a relaxing effect on me. WEEK TWO: COZY First photo: During building my new Mickey Mouse Lego Art set, it was cozy at my desk, with my cozy blanket, and relaxing music, and the most of time it was snowing outside. Right! Watching the snowflakes outside from behind the window next to me, it’s added more coziness. Second photo: Let’s back at the biggest snowing time in 15 years at my house in January (I talked about here). Drinking a hot cocoa with my cozy blankets and a big layer of snow outside, is an of my favorite best coziness thing in the world. Third photo: One of my favorite cozy current moment also, it’s wrapping myself in my cozy blankets and listening the “Relaxing Guitar playlist” in my App Calm. WEEK THREE: COLD First and second photos: These photos has been took in the same time, it was during that a lot of snow was again in my backyard and an afternoon I went to make Mickey Mouse snowballs, I wear in first time light gloves and after a few minutes my fingers were so cold. I grabbed my camera for the theme cold. And after I switched to my ski gloves to warm me up. WEEK FOUR: WHITE First and second photos: The two first ones has been took in the same time but it’s a different views from the apartment in the mountains that I got when I was on a Winter/Ski Adventure last week (I could talk more about soon). Trees covered by snow are my favorite landscape in the world. Right! It’s matched on the same theme that the white theme for my photography challenge, it was a bit an evidence that I use these white landscapes for this theme. Third photo: The last photo was actually not took with my camera but my iPhone, but white snow under my ski, I wanted to place it in the recap of this weekly theme. That wraps this very first weekly photos recap from my photography challenge! Thanks for stopping by!

Le Chateau De La Belle Au Bois Dormant

Right! I know that I haven’t finished to share the last Vol. from my Disneyland Paris 2020 photo books but today I wanted to share a special little photo book project that I realized at the end of December. During the virtual Christmas Insidears show from Disneyland Paris last year, they have done announcements about 2021 projects in the Disneyland Paris parks. Many of the projects, I knew them already because it was some 2020 projects but with the lockdowns and closures, it was delayed. A BIG and special project who was not known has been revealed, Le Chateau de la Belle au Bois Dormant (The Sleeping Beauty Castle) could have a big refurbishment. The biggest refurbishment happened since the opening of Disneyland Paris in 1992. The Castle could be wrapped by tarps with the design of the Castle on it during this time. This refurbishment is happening for that the Castle is all beautiful for the 30th Anniversary of Disneyland Paris on April 12, 2022. The refurbishment is starting in January, during always the parks closed, and have no real an end date, but it’s could probably during all year, in sight that it’s a big refurbishment for the Anniversary in 2022. Right! No lie! When I learned this new, I was so sad. Particularly in the current circumstances. The park is closed for the second time since the end of October 2020 and the reopening date was on February 13, 2021 but today, Disneyland Paris has announced that it could not opens before April 02, 2021. It’s such a hard new but it was on the way because we have everything of closed in France again since end October. I was sad that I haven’t had the time to look on the Castle and tell him an appropriate good bye before this refurbishment. Already, at the announcement of Disneyland Paris closure for the rest of the year, it was hard because during my last trip in October, I haven’t been able to say an appropriate good bye at the park because no closure was planned two weeks before the closure when I was there. Well! About the Castle, this is a hard moment also. During my trips in the first reopening of the park between July and October 2020, I spend a lot of time to watch the Castle because there was no parades/shows to watch because of the safety measures. But during my last trip, I had no ideas that it’s could be my last trip of 2020 and the last time that I saw the Castle in reel for more than one year. Right! This is a hard and emotional thing! A few days later, after all the emotions, I wanted to do something of special in the honor of this refurbishment du Chateau de La Belle au Bois Dormant. I haven’t enough of videos to do a video, even if I had the idea. Right! I turned on the way to create a special photo book project. I love more and more creating photo books and I have a lot of photos of the Castle to make one. This is the first time that I create a special photo book like that, before my photo books are about my yearly (the 2020 that I’m currently creating but took delay because I created this special project in the same time) and since 2019, I’m doing travel photo books also. This was so exciting create a special project photo book and I have in the mind to do it again, if I want to do it for other things. I was happy because when I got the idea of this special photo book project, I knew already a bit what kind of photo book I wanted. This was a special project for a very special icon of Disneyland Paris so I wanted something of different of my other photo books. Usually, I print my photo book in portrait or square sizes but this one I wanted to do it in landscape, I knew also that I wanted to print it in a smaller size that my travel square photo books. Little but so special! And the perfect touch that I wanted for make this photo book special is the cover in linen material. Usually, my photo books are in normal hard cover but I recently loved the linen material even if it was not a current idea to do yearly or travel photo book with this. Right! I jumped on the linen material to make the special touch. In France, I had a hard time to found a website who create photo books in linen and in the size that I wanted in the same time. After a lot of research on Internet, I found the MilkBooks website and I loved their photo books when I scrolled, I launched me. This is the first time that I use their website. I’m so anxious when I want to try a new photo books printer because I’m afraid that I don’t like the quality. And photo books it’s expensive. It’s important for me that I love the quality. But in another way, when I printed the last photo books on the printers that I usually use, I started to be a bit disappointed. Right! I told me that it was the moment to launch to try maybe a new printer! And I very excited that it was for the Castle special project photo book that I launched me to try a new printer. Alert! I love so much the photo book and quality! I printed this photo book in the classic photo book in small landscape and in the blue linen cover. In the photo book, one photo by page or a few times two. Some photos of the Castle that I took from December 2018 to October 2020. On the back of each photo, I written the date and hours that I took it. From photos of

A Weekly Photography Challenge

I talked about in my 2020 review and 2021 goals blog post, in 2021 I have chosen to do a Weekly Photography Challenge. Why a photography challenge? I had the idea to do a kind of photography challenge since a time. But I started to think it about more at the end of last year when I started to reflect on 2020 and find goals/challenges for 2021. In 2020, photography has been pretty hard with the different lockdowns in France and the impossibility to go outdoor or in place that I love to take photos. It was a pretty hard challenge to take photos! It was so hard that during the first closure of Disneyland Paris between mid-March and mid-July, my DSLR stays on my shelve without that I use it once. And it was not good because I had a hard time to use it when I was back in the park after. Right! I have chosen to do a weekly photography challenge with prompts to try to explore and work and pick up my camera at least once weekly. Why a weekly challenge? It exists a lot of different photography challenges, 365 days projects, monthly, 100 days of summer,… But, I have chosen the weekly photography challenge because first I know that an every day project could be hard to manage and unaccomplishable with my mental health. I wanted something all over the year. Right! My attention gets on the weekly challenge. This is the story about! THE RULES OF THIS PHOTOGRAPHY CHALLENGE. +Pick up one camera. I could chosen my DSLR or mirrorless camera because I start this challenge to pick up more my camera. +Pick up the theme of the week. I created my own weekly list prompts. Find it below. +Work each week with the theme by taking at least one photo on this theme during the week. Or even more if I feel creative and good for it. +Each week, I could share the photos that I take by theme on Instagram and I could probably done a recap each month here on the blog, with the different themes of each month. Here is the weekly list prompts. The goal of this challenge is simple, do not spend a large time without pick up my DSLR in the hands. I find inspiration on Internet and I written my own prompts depending of my mood in each season that I know that could loving work on this photography challenge more. And have fun! This is the goal also! Let’s get starting! Thanks for stopping by here!

An Authorized Lockdown Escape

This joyful moment when I realized that the ski resort and mountains are in the 20 km perimeter outside exercice authorized. Currently, always in lockdown since the end of October in France, since the end of November we can doing an outside exercise in a maximum perimeter of 20 km and during not more than 3 hours. The French gouvernement refuses to open ski lifts and have no dates when they could open. A lot of snow has falling down in the mountains these last days and even in the mountains and ski resort near my house when the last season they have dealt all the season with the lack of snow. Right! The last day that I was outside from the house more than the backyard it was mid-October on my last Disneyland Paris trip. In the beginning, I have managed this lockdown pretty good but these last days started to be really hard on different ways. Well! When I realized that the mountains were in the 20 km perimeter and even if the ski lifts aren’t open, I decided to go outside for the first time in almost two months to going to see the snow at least. Saturday afternoon with my parents I headed in the mountains. We need one hour to go and one hour to go down the mountains, so we were able to stay only one hour with the three hours authorized maximum. But it was an amazing time! Of course, this is the first snow that I saw since February. I cried when I saw it and I could not believe it and today again I have a hard time to realize. Realized, that I was outside from the house for the first time in two months and for going to see the snow in more. I cried again more than at the reopening of Disneyland Paris in July (sorry Disneyland Paris, I love you so much but it was ten months that I haven’t see snow). At the top of the mountains surrounded by the snow, except a bit at Disneyland Paris, this is the first time since the beginning of this pandemic that I felt happy in the bottom of my heart, but really. It was foggy, I walked, took photos and rolled myself in the snow, it was so peaceful, this is also the first time since the beginning of this pandemic during be lost around the tree covered by snow in the fog that I felt a peaceful moment. I’m feel weird to have be able to feel a peaceful moment again because more and more I was going, I felt like I could never again feel peaceful times. How good it was also to wear again my ski clothes, I missed them. A few children and peoples were playing and laughing in the snow, everybody was social distances and I decided to walk around where there was nobody. It was so good for the mind to hear these peoples have fun. The last day that I hear peoples laughing it was during my trip at Disneyland Paris in October, since I hear only about the lockdown. I have no word how it was good! It was an authorized amazing escape from this lockdown, my mental health gets worse these last three weeks, at the point do not be able to sleep correctly and even if it was short it was so good for my mental health this winter white dream. Even if it’s sad because I don’t know when I could skiing, to see the snow and mountains with the snow after so much months was a dream. And I take this time in waiting. Let’s sharing a few photography! Back home, I drink a hot cocoa and watched a Christmas movie. Thanks for stopping by here!

Halloween 2020 at Disneyland Paris Videos

Lockdown number 2, Day 3. Despite that in France we are back in a lockdown, the Halloween Festival at Disneyland Paris has been able to run almost all the month of October. It’s amazing! Well! During my trip October, I of course took the time to filming at was present during this special Halloween season. From filming to the post-production, these videos were really special to work on it despite that Halloween season is not my favorite. It’s the first time since March that I filmed something all a season at Disneyland Paris. And it’s the first time since March that I worked on some videos who ask to film under many angles and who ask so much work in post-production. It’s so good! In first, I planned to do one video, about the all Halloween Festival but back home and like I enough filmed I decided to do a second video with only the Halloween floats who ride the parade route. You know that to see ride these first floats since March on the parade route has something of very special to me. And again more now that Disneyland Paris has closed again. You can watching the videos below or on my Youtube channel.  Thanks for stopping by!

What A Very Special Magical Day

Let’s sharing a very special day! On July 13, I was back at Disneyland Paris for a very special day! Disneyland Paris has official reopened on Wednesday July 15 after 123 days of closure, I booked this day but when I received a special email in the beginning of July for a soft reopening for the annual pass holders on July 13 and 14, I switched my trip from July 15 to July 13, to assist at this special day reserved only for the annual pass before the official reopening. When Disneyland Paris has officially announced his reopening date at the end of June, I took a few times to thought if I could go for the reopening or wait. I have finally chosen to go only for the day and not a trip with a stay in a hotel in first. Why this choice? Because going only for the day is a really big and long day because I live at 500 km from Disneyland Paris with usually three hours of TGV but my official TGV line has always some tracks modernizations since February and I have to change of line and take two different trains. My trains are really early in the morning because I take it around 5h42 am and on my trains back I leave Marne La Vallée at 07h01 pm to arrive at home around 0h00 am the next day. This is really a long day! In the very beginning when I started to go at Disneyland Paris one and a half year ago, I have done only some one day trips like that, the last one that I have done it was exactly one year ago on July 23, 2019, after I have done monthly trips with stay in hotels. For multiple reasons, I had the idea to do again one day trip. The principal reasons, I had no doubt that Disneyland Paris could to do the best about the safety measures but going outside with the Coronavirus is something who anxious me a lot so I have chosen to going slowly before come back to do some trips with sleep in hotel, I wanted to see already how I feel just in the parks. And another good reason is that during this first phase of reopening Disneyland Paris, my two favorites, the parade and the night time show who are usually presented daily in the park could not be again back because of the safety measures. It was something hard for me because this is my favorite part of the day with these two and at some moments I was not sure if Disneyland Paris could be as much as therapeutic without these two favorites again. Right! I have done the choice to do one day trip before be fully back on a really trip to see how I feel in the parks with this first phase of reopening Disneyland Paris. On a note, I had no choice to chosen between the July 13 and 14, because July 14 is Bastille Day in France so a holiday and my trains doesn’t ride. Right! I had no choice to chose July 13 but I was really happy to go on this day. I want to start by saying that it was really a special day, magical day! And at my biggest surprise, an amazing therapeutic day! Before going on this day, I don’t excepted something of special on this first day back after four months, I didn’t know what Disneyland Paris has planned without parades and shows for safety measures and it was a soft reopening and a new experience to explore. I haven’t planned anything for this day except when leave the park for take my train back home. This is the first time that I haven’t planned a trip at the parks, I always do it for optimized my time in the parks. But for this special day, I haven’t planned and excepted anything. After my past weeks in the crisis with my flashbacks, I hoped just that I could to do at least one full hour without flashbacks. It was awesome! These past weeks, I was not able to spent more than 30 seconds without flashbacks and during this day I spent more than five hours without any and I had almost any flashbacks of all the day, when they were come back I was able to switch my mind back at the present in the parks in just a few minutes. I had any anxiety crisis of all day also while I was not able to spent one day without anxiety crisis since more than three months. It was amazing! It was incredible to live that! Now, the days after back of this day, I took the time to thought and exploring how I could to do some trips even if the parades and shows are not all again back. I really really hope who could be back the fast as possible in some safety precautions but I have found what to do to come back on some trips in waiting like even. Because no doubt after this day that Disneyland Paris is always therapeutic, even with some current experiences who change with the safety measures but who at the final doesn’t change really. Right! I spent this day to enjoy the park who is shinning, I have done a few attractions, my first one was Peter Pan’s Flight, followed by It’s A Small World, Le Carousel de Lancelot, Pirates Of The Caribbean, The Thunder Mesa RiverBoat and I watched Mickey PhilarMagic at Discoveryland Theater. I ate a sugar Mickey Waffle and spent two hours in the afternoon to sit next to the Castle to enjoy the music and views. On the morning, the entrance was made by some cast members who waved you welcome back and I saw the president of Disneyland Paris Natasha Rafalski and the Disneyland Paris ambassador Giona. And I took a lot of photos

Sneak Peek Of Disney Illuminations – Disneyland Paris

Disney Illuminations is an of my biggest favorite show! This is a spectacular night time show presented by Pandora who takes place at Disneyland park closure time. Right! If you want to be in front row like the view on the following video, you need to arrive 2 hours before the show. This show has started for the 25th Anniversary of Disneyland Paris. Disney Illuminations is a mix with mapping on the castle, firework, lasers, flames thrower and water jets with of course the music. It presents some scenes of some iconic disney movies. The show duration is 20 minutes. And it’s an of my favorite time at Disneyland Paris. Fantasyland is closed one hour prior the park closure hours to prepare the show. On my recent post about some Disneyland Paris secrets I shared one about the preparation of Disney Illuminations that you can look around 45 minutes before the show during waiting for it. I took some tapes that I got of my September and October 2019 trips and I make a video sneak peek inside this show. I miss this show! Enjoy the video!  Thanks for watching!

Disneyland Paris Photo Book 2020 Vol.1

Welcome in another photo book post! Right! I will share a little peek inside the photo book of my trips in February and March 2020 at Disneyland Paris. INTRO: last year, I waited the end of the year and I created a photo book for all my trips at Disneyland Paris in one. Loved this format! But, this year with the current parks closure and after noticing a few things during creating the photo book last year, I decided to try the things differently a bit. I thought during a few weeks if I create a photo book for these two trips that I have already done or I wait until the end of the year like last year. But, during the lockdown, I had to find some projects to occupying my mind and like I love create photo books. Like I was not able to go at Disneyland Paris and I had no date (always currently today, no date) when I could come back, I launched me and I decided to create a photo book for my trips in February and March. I love the photo book that I created on my last year trips at Disneyland Paris! You can find it here. But there is one thing who frustrated me! The websites creation photo books propose a number limited of pages to add at your photo book (around 100 pages), and when I created this of last year, I had to abandon to place some photos that I loved inside because there was no more room. I love also place often one big full photo by page and to place the photos in this photo book of last year, I rarely did it by missing space. Right! These two previous reasons pouched me to launch me do not wait until the end of the year and to create a first photo book already for these two trips. Th reasons were good! With only two trips, this photo book contains 99 pages and I could put more pages with one full photo like I love. I tried something a bit different than my photo book of last year also. Last year, I took the time to write down all the things that I have done, parades watched, attractions done,… over the year. Of course, with only two trips in the same Frozen Celebration, I haven’t done that. But, I took the time to describe differently my days, if in the photo book last year, I written overly what I have done each day, in this one, I took the time to describe the entire days by hours and what I have done. I noticed during these past weeks, to remember my trips during lockdown, it’s something that I missed in the last photo book. I love to remember the different things to the different moments of the days. Some final thoughts. At the end of each trip in the photo book, I took the time to write some final thoughts. A few words, the thoughts that I have of each trip, the good, the bad, the difficult and what makes me happy. Create this photo book with the days fully detailed, some final thoughts and placing more photos, I loved trying this way and I can’t wait to be in the parks, to do more trips, to take more photos, for create more photo books like that because I’m happy when I do that! Now, sharing a little peek inside! More details about my trip in February 2020. More details about my trip in March 2020.   That wraps this Disneyland Paris Photo Book 2020 Vol.1. Thanks for stopping by!

Photos Scavenger Hunt At Home

Motivation 0%, creativity 0%, productivity 0%. That’s me since a few weeks and it really start to get me! I haven’t taken my DSLR outside since my last trip at Disneyland Paris in the beginning of March. And last week, when I took it for the first time outside to take photos of my cat. The feeling was good! In real, at home I haven’t really of interest to take out my DSLR and I have nothing around that I want to photograph. I decided to try challenging myself on this and create a Photos Scavenger Hunt at Home during the month of June. Because even if the lockdown is up and tomorrow the France starts his phase 2 to reopening the country, nothing that I love or who is therapeutic to me outside could be open before weeks. Right! For me, it’s always kind of quarantine. I miss take photos in my therapy place (aka Disneyland Paris). I miss just take photos of what I love. Right! At home and even if I have no real interest to photograph what around me. I decided to challenge myself. It is it! I bought a new camera and she could be delivered in the next days. Right! This photos scavenger hunt is the occasion to start to learn this new camera and get used to before take it in travel. A lot peoples on Instagram love to do some monthly photos challenges. I do not wanted to do that because I know that every day with my depression and no-motivating mind, I knew that I couldn’t to follow it and could be lost in the first days. Right! I decided to do a photos scavenger hunt rather. I have 30 subjects for June but I decided do not force myself to do every day, particularly on really no-productiviting days or when I’m just not motivated. The goal is to do when I feel that I want, on the days that I want, to work on my photography creativity on the different subjects write down on the list and learn to use my new camera who is on the way. Not every day, and if I want to work one day on five subjects the same day, it’s ok! Just a project to try to occupy my mind away of my flashbacks also. Below here it is my photos scavenger hunt at home for June! Let’s go for a photo scavenger hunt at home in June!

Some Hope News + It’s A Small World Video

Right! This is some good news! Yesterday afternoon, there is had the adress by the Prime Minister in France, in view of starting the phase 2 of reopening the country. They give some really good news about the evolution of the Coronavirus in France. The phase 2 of reopening the country will start on June 2. To definite in what counties of France, the Coronavirus was the most powerful they used a map of the France with the color green and red. Green the situation was calm even if the Coronavirus was present and red the situation was tough. My county was of course in red because we are the city who had the more of cases and death of Coronavirus. We officially passing in green. All the France is green, except Ile De France, Guyana and Mayotte who are passing in orange in view of the complicated situation in different ways. The phase 2 in green zone, include the opening every things, restaurants, museums, parks,… on June 2. In orange, a few things opening again but less and if in green zone the theme parks are authorized to open in orange zone they are authorized to open only on June 22. On June 22, the phase 3 of the opening of the country will start if all is good. It means that Disneyland Paris is authorized to opens on June 22. Now, Disneyland Paris doesn’t have gives official opening date again. We are waiting! But whatever the date, that they are authorized to opens on June 22 is a success because, before there is no really hope who opens before July 15. Now, they are authorized before! Now, it is necessary to waiting the official date made by Disneyland Paris. Listening this adress of the Prime Minister gives me hope a bit and help me to feel a bit better, even if it’s nothing big.   Now, I’m sharing the last video that I edited. This is the very first time that I’m doing an attraction video. Usually, I don’t filming in attractions, except a few times with my iPhone for some Instagram stories. Here it was a first! In the beginning of the year, when I thought and planned a few videos that I wanted to do at Disneyland Paris during the year, filming attractions on ride was on it. Filming an attraction is again different challenging than filming a parade or simply the park. I’m pretty happy of this first attraction video and I noticed and write down things that I must take in account the next time that I could filming attractions to makes some things better. On my first attraction, I have chosen to do It’s A Small World because it’s an iconic and it’s the older attraction in Disneyland Paris and to be honest I thought it was the one more easy. But in real, I’m not sure that it was finally the easier. Whatever! Here the video!  Thanks for watching

How Create A Travel PhotoBook

If you follow me since awhile you know that I love photo books. In the beginning of the year at the occasion to create my 2019 yearly photo book, I shared how I create my yearly photo books. Well! Now, I will share how I create my travel photo books, if the creating process is the same for my travel and yearly photo books, it is also totally different. A travel photo book project is much easier than when you are trying to put together a yearly photo book. If you’re beginner in photo books, starting a travel photo book is more accessible, it’s currently in these times of no-travel a good idea to print your past travel memories before to could come back exploring. If a yearly photo book, I take about two months to create it, a travel photo book, I take about one to two weeks. I create 100% myself the photo books, no help from the software or themes that websites can to propose you, I create also all my pages with writing separately on PhotoShop. It’s for this principal reason that I take more time to create my photo books. But it’s something that I couldn’t pass on, if it’s take more time, it’s let more place, texts and creativity also. The best to personalize your photo books! Of course, if you’re beginner you haven’t the need to do that, in first you can to create with what the websites propose you. In first, I have done it also, it’s after practice creating photo books that I launched me to create my very own writing pages on PhotoShop. PHOTO BOOKS SIZE I already talked in the post where I shared how I create my yearly photo books that I decided to create my yearly photo books in portrait size and my travel photo books in square size to differentiate them. Before starting your photo book, know in what size you want to print them is important. DEFINITE WHAT PHOTOS PLACE IN THE PHOTO BOOK Create a folder on your laptop of your travel photo book project and place all photos that you want to place on it inside the folder. You can then upload them to the website or software that you have chosen to create your photo book. I create my travel photo books with PhotoBox. WRITE DOWN MEMORIES, FAVORITES THINGS Even if you do not create your writing pages separately on PhotoShop, take a time to write down on a notes app your memories, favorite things, describe your days, every things that you could want to have write down to remember them. In the photo book, before or after, I don’t like specially to write on the same pages that the photos, take a few pages to notes these memories. LET’S CREATE IT! You have everything to could create your photo book, photos, memories written. Now, let create it! I like to keep minimalist and simple with one full photo by pages. On a square travel photo book, I don’t exceed four photos by pages because too much photos by page, the photos could be smaller and not also beautiful with a view on the details to look on it. Let your creativity and desires during remember your travel to create your photo book. Need inspirations! Check Pinterest to find photo books templates ideas. Let’s send to print it! And a few times later get the exciting to opens it for the very first time. Below some links where I shared a little pick inside my different travel photo books. Disneyland Paris 2019 La Clusaz 2020   I love a photo book project! When is the last time that you have printed travel photos?

Disney Stars On Parade – Disneyland Paris

Yesterday was Disneyland Paris 28th Birthday. I was not one second in mood to celebrate Easter because my heart was hurting that the gates were not open on his special day. I miss Disneyland Paris! My mental health miss Disneyland Paris! Each day, it feel again harder, I can’t go to my therapy place, my flashbacks and anxiety increase every day and if yet I was not in depression since a long time, I start to fall literally in depression and it feel like it’s can’t stop. Right! I have made a compromise, outside of the fact that I could want to be on the day of re-open of the parks. I usually go 3-4 days by month to Disneyland Paris. I will miss these of April but each month missing to go in the park and like I do not want to use the money for other things, I decided to transfer these missed days on the following months until the parks open. Right! The result, by example if the parks re-open in May, I could go six days in the row, if the parks re-open in June, I could go nine days in the row, etc. I dream to go more than only 3-4 days in the row. Right! That’s my compromise, right now! BUT! I have to hold that until it’s re-open and that’s hard every single day. Well! It’s a long time that I wanted to filming and create a video on my favorite parade to Disneyland Paris. Disney Stars On Parade is played daily (when the weather don’t prevent it, but the cast members working on it done a great job because it’s often done it even under the rain, the times that I had canceled it it was because of big winds with the storm Ciara in February), since the 25th Birthday from Disneyland Paris. It’s an of my highest favorite thing to Disneyland Paris! I love it! It was obvious that I create a video about it. BUT! For multiple reasons, I had some troubles to create it. And today, the final video that I share was not my goal video from the beginning. I wanted to create a full video of the parade with a time of about 10 minutes like the parade in real. But, I haven’t managed. I will prepare myself to do it another time. But! In waiting, and with the parks closure and Disneyland Paris birthday, I wanted to do something. Right! I turned the video differently and I created a short version. In less of two minutes, but I pretty love it. Ok! Less of 2 minutes, I can watching it more than 60 times in one hour and more than 720 times in one day, in waiting that the parks re-open. It’s not too much! Right! You can check out the video below but before a few photos of Disney Stars On Parade also that I took last year (except the first one took in March this year). I need to planning to take photos again of the parade because also during writing this post I realized that I haven’t camera photos of the Frozen float, an of my favorite float, because even if I watch it many times on a trip, I love just watching it and for some mental health reasons not specially enjoying this time behind the camera each time. It’s the compromise who can be hard when you’re a photographer and trying to enjoy the moment.   The float are really big and amazing! My favorites is the one who opens the parade with Mickey & Minnie, Toy Story, Crush and the Frozen float. But I pretty love all the parade! Check this short film on the parade! A highlight to do if you plan a trip to Disneyland Paris before the 30th Anniversary because I hear that at this time, they could to do a new parade.  Thanks for stopping by!

Frozen Celebration to Disneyland Paris Video

What challenge has been to create this video! The Frozen Celebration to Disneyland Paris is an all new season who has started on January 11st, 2020 and is supposed to wrap on May 3rd, 2020. A lot of annual pass holders has been disappointed by this season because they compare it to The Lion King & Jungle Festival presented last summer BUT I’m totally disagree with them with what I lived during this season! Everybody know that the Winter weather to Paris and in France is bad. It’s cold, very often rainy and this year we had even multiple storms. I had the privilege (or not) to be in Disneyland Paris during the Ciara storm in February. Right! It’s could to be totally illogical they place much money on some shows who must often canceled because of the weather conditions. Yes! Because, during my trip in February & March, it was rainy every day and I had so many cancelations. With yet normally, four show representations of the Frozen 2: An Enchanted Journey by day. I had more of shows canceled than I could saw! Right! It was a challenge to shoot videos or take photos with all these shows canceled. I wanted to go back from my February’s trip with my Frozen Celebration video to edit BUT I couldn’t with all the shows canceled and the rain. In my March’s trip, despite that the weather was also bad AND they have even canceled one show in the middle because of the rain, the weather was a bit better sometimes and I could to see and so right filming more shows. Because for my videos (and because I love that), I watch many times the same shows to filming under different angles! I have managed to do it in March! How happy I’m about that! I don’t know if I could to see again the Frozen 2: An Enchanted Journey before the end of the season, with the current Coronavirus situation, probably not. Disneyland Paris has announced not who could be closed until the 15th April or a future date, but until further noticed. It’s a bit hard do not have of date! And I’m sad because Disneyland Paris could not be open on his birthday on 12th April. But now, one thing who is sure that I want and to do the maximum to be in the park, THE DAY where they could re-open to support them. I have done multiple reservations on different weeks, months on Booking that I could switch or move when they could to announce that they could re-open. Currently, it’s my highest reason to live! Right! Let’s a look on my cinematic video of the Frozen Celebration to Disneyland Paris, filmed in March 2020 with a Canon EOS and EF 18-135mm.

Ski Season Recap

It’s official the ski season 2019/2020 is wrapped! I’m sad! 10 days, 100 runs, 150 km, 28 hours, an average speed of 11km/h and a record of 26 km/h. This season is wrapped early for different reasons. But! It was an incredible amazing season on my ski practice! It was my third ski seasons and I improved on different sides my ski skills. It was hard sometimes but it was amazing! I told previous that this season has been wrapped early for different reasons! The first one is the lack of snow! On the ski resort near my house, this season has been really specify hard, the lack of snow was total all long Winter season. If the first snowflakes has appeared already in November 2019 and we had some beautiful snow days during the season, the constant high temperatures and rain have done that the snow melted really fast. A day it was -10° degress Celcius, the next day it was 10 degress Celcius, all this all long Winter. A few snow inches appeared in the mountains, they was able to open a few days and three days later all snow has melted down, the mountains were green and the ski resort closed until the follow week where it was snowing and there is enough snow to open but three days later all snow has again melted down. It was like that all the season! It was pretty hard to see that! On a three months season, they have probably open about 25 days, not in the row. It was pretty hard to skiing in these circumstances, but the peoples in the ski resort have worked so hard and were reactive after each snow fall to open the slopes when it was possible despite of the hard lack of snow. I want so much thanks them because they have done an amazing work. But in the beginning of March just right after I’m back from my solo trip to Disneyland Paris they officially decided to stop fighting against the not Winter weather. They have officially closed the ski resort on March 12st, it was hard because it’s the same day that The Walt Disney Compagny has officially decided to close Disneyland Paris, Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort to fight against the Coronavirus. It was hard psychologically! My only two favorites and helpful things closed in the same time! Right! I was hopeful to going on a trip in the beginning of April in the French Alps where snow was again here. But a few days later, on the order of the gourvenment to fight against the Coronavirus all the ski resorts in France have closed. And definitively wrapped their season 2019/2020 even if some ski resorts could have not closed before the end of April. That’s sad! Where snow there is, the ski resorts are forced to close early! The deal with the lack of snow was hard but it’s maybe what helped me to really improve my ski skills this season. Yes! Because, I skied a lot on some icy and artificial snow and on some runs where I must to do some slaloms to not finish on the grass because of the lack of snow. I skied ten days this season and I’m happy! I have done my first six days on my ski trip at La Clusaz in January and the rest I have skied in the ski resort near of my house. One week in February, I was able to going to Disneyland Paris and skiing on the same week. It was pretty cool! My last day of ski was on February 27th that in fact I shared here on my blog. I could to have loved skiing once or twice after my Disneyland Paris trip in March but between the lack of snow and the orders of the gourvnement to close all things to fight the Coronavirus. It’s not happened! I’m sad! But! I’m grateful for this epic ski season! I skied on some icy/artifical/powder and fresh snow runs, under the sun, windy, foggy and some beautiful snow falls. I’m officially able to do some complete parallel turns and working on my legs balance. I took more blue than green runs this season, I have taken even my first red slopes. I always love skiing between trees and my favorite snow to skiing is always the powder. I can to do skidding turns, I’m able to enchained many turns in the row without stopping me after each one, I feel less anxious to take a bit of speed. Another important thing that I noticed on my two last ski sessions is that when I’m back on the ski after a few days without to have been on the slopes, I can easily doing my first slope of the day without to have a time to readapt me to wear and slid on some ski at the beginning of each session. It was something that I got before and this time to readapt at the beginning of each session was a bit hard and was making me losing time. I needed 15 minutes and about two runs to adapt me but now I can put my ski and go on my first run of the day with more confidence (I think that’s the right word). Right! I have my second star! It was an epic! And wrapped early! But! Awesome ski season! My favorite of the season has clearly was explore new terrains, I’m totally convinced that it’s that who helped me to progress this season. My absolute favorite day of the season has been the last ski day on my trip to La Clusaz with the crazy and an amazing snow fall all afternoon. I plead guilty! It was a WONDERFUL WHITE DREAM this day!

I talked in my diary post of my Disneyland Paris trip last week that I wanted to come back home with two videos to editing. Unfortunately despite of the bad weather conditions because of the storm Ciara. I was not able to shoot videos because most of the shows has been canceled. I wanted to come home with one video on the new Frozen Celebration and one on the Legends Of The Force season. I could not to edit this time the Frozen video because I haven’t shooted all what I wanted to add in the video. But! I have managed to shoot enough during the Star Wars shows. Right!

Ski Trip In La Clusaz Video

I shared the recap with photos of my ski trip in La Clusaz during the month of January and after to have worked a few weeks on the video, she is finished! Shooting a ski trip video is harder than a Disneyland or city video for multiple reasons. Already, I don’t want to take with me on the slopes my DLSR because it’s cold and the snow. Right! I shooted principally with my iPhone 11 and my GoPro Hero Session. I haven’t a multitude and of creative possibilities than on the DSLR who has different settings. I love to take videos on a ski trip but I try to spend the more time possible to progress on my ski skills and doing together, it’s not easy! I love like even take back a video from a ski trip. And thinking about that I haven’t all the materials during a ski trip. I love the video of this trip in La Clusaz.  Thanks for watching!

How I Create My Yearly Photo Books

It’s now a few years that I make yearly photo books. I recently ordered, received and shared my 2019 photo book and in this occasion, I will share how I create my yearly photo book. Create a yearly photo book is a big and complex project but totally worth it to print photos in this way! I have chosen the way to keep my photos printed in photo books because it keeps organized and minimalist on the shelves. I have chosen a big yearly do not have multiple photo books of each little events and it’s easier to include everyday life inside. I will share a look and my process how I create my yearly photo book that this big project gets easier. Creating a yearly photo book can take some times to work on it and in function of how much time you can spend to work on it by week. But it’s important to take the time to make the book that you love because it’s lifetime memories photo books. 1. Download and store photos by month on your laptop. The first and biggest important thing! In first time, choose the photos that you want to print in your photo book of your multiple devices and organized them in folders by month on your laptop. Note: keep only photos that you want to place in the book. If you need you can take one week to choose the photos that you want but it’s important to organize and reduce the number of photos at this that you want to place inside the photo book. It makes it easier the next steps! If you hesitate between two photos, keep the two at this point, it’s could help you to choose your layouts later when you hesitate on the layouts. 2. Think about what kind of photo book size you want. Now that you have your photos organized the photos that you want to print in your yearly photo book, you need to choose your photo book size. I personally chose a portrait size for my yearly photo books. I love this size! It’s more beautiful on the shelves and the layouts permit you better to place yours between travel and everyday life photos. 3. Download and organize by month on the website. You have your photos organized and the book size in head! It’s time to start download your photos on the website. Depending how much photos you have but with a yearly photo book you have a ton of photos so it’s can take a long time, even many hours. The photos download is long and probably the step that I hate the more when I create a yearly photo book. I download about 500 photos and it’s can take me more than four hours. Right! I highly recommend to start this step and let aside your laptop and do another stuffs in waiting. Stay at home and do it by day to keep an eye that all photos downloads correctly. 4. Think the layouts that you want for your photos. You can take the time to do this step when your photos are downloading! You have organized the photos that you want to print in the photo book previously so you know what kind of photos you have. It makes it easier to choose the layouts. I love to keep simple, I choose a two, four or six photos by page by mixing portraits and landscapes photos sizes and my absolutely favorite photos I love to place it in the entire page. For the everyday life, I love to choose also the layout with multiple squares on the same page. Choose maximum five different layouts and stay with the same and regular. 5. Start to create the book with only the first month. It’s time to start really creating the photo book now! When you start it you can to be really existed but fastly you could be overwhelmed also by the giant task to create a yearly photo book. Right! Stop! Start to create only the first month. Let one blank page at the beginning of the book for your photo book introduction later and start to creating the first month. Only the first month! Try to place your photos with the layouts that you have previously chosen. Try each photo and pages with different layouts… until you feel that you love the layouts and it’s the good one that you could love to look on your printed photo book again and again. Depending if I traveled or it was a month with different activities or a calm month, I have general from two to eight pages by month. I try to do not go further. Because to know that you can’t print endless pages in photo books, the websites have a maximum of pages authorized who is around 100 pages. 6. Continue to create one month by one. You have finished to create your first month! You can continue to create the rest of your photo book. Go slowly and continue to create one month by month. I start the next month that when I have finished the previous to stay calm to the big task that I have to create a yearly photo book. If you have really trouble to create or finishing one month, you can let a few blank pages and go at the next month. It can happen with all the photos of all long year that you are currently looking on it. But try in the maximum to create one month by month, it makes all the task easier. But to be lacking of inspiration it’s can happen, at this moment you can trying to start the next month and come back later on your previous month. 7. Create your monthly introductions and year introduction on PhotoShop. Now that you have finished the biggest task to place your photos in your photo book, you can start to creating your introductions. I love to use photoshop to

Disneyland Paris Photography Tips

I have done now multiple trips to Disneyland Paris with my annual pass holder and an of my favorite thing to do in the parks each time is to take photography and filming videos. It’s my favorite activity! I always take my big camera with me to be able to have the best of settings to take differents photos and filming in different ways. Today, I will share some photography tips that you can use for your next trip at Disneyland Paris. I learned and collected these tips during all my trips. + Materials. Currently, I’m using a Canon 200D with one lens 18-135mm. I love them! An of my favorite thing about the Canon 200D he has the wifi connection option so during breaks in the park I can easily transfer the photos on my phone the same day. To stay light, because it’s not fun to have heavy bags around the parks, I highly recommend taking just one lens. Think ahead about what kind of photos you want to take. My favorite lens is clearly a zoom lens because you can take some different kind of photos with one lens. You can take large photos of Main Street USA and details of the characters in the parades. Because you will move a lot and the camera can touch or shocks because of the peoples around you who don’t care about your camera. Take a bag who protects good your camera and if you keep your camera in hands but don’t use it, place the lens cover. Don’t forget to take an SD Card enough big to store all the photos that you will take. Before going on your trip, look for inspiration. My favorite inspiration place is on Pinterest (I have a special Disneyland inspiration board here) but Instagram is also a good place to find inspiration with the ton of photos. Find inspiration could help you to find photos ideas but it’s could help you also to find what kind of photos you do not want to take. + Park Tips. You have over a multitude of possibilities of photos to take over the park. Between each land and the seasons who change and you can even playing with the bad weather from Paris to take new creative photos. Disneyland Paris offers you really a large possibility of photos. My favorite tip is to sleep in a Disney hotel and going in the park during Extra Magic Hours. Opens one hour before the official doors. You can take photos with so much less of peoples. It’s really amazing! You can take photos with almost nobody on Main Street USA & in front of the Castle. You have access also to a big part of the lands and attractions. Take some steps back or going in front of. Go back to capture large angles and landscapes of Disneyland but go in front also and search little details to take in photos. Little details are everywhere at Disneyland. Pay attention at the light in the parks. Play with the aperture to have the depth of field and shutter speed to play with the movement. + Castle Tips. To take photos with almost nobody in front by day it’s during the Extra Magic Hours and by night, you must wait after Disney Illuminations and that the park starts to get empty. Depending on some seasons, sometimes you must wait about 1h. They are a lot of peoples who want to take photos with the Castle by night. The Castle is beautiful under all his angles so don’t stay in front only, go around, on the sides and on the back. During the day on the two sides are some spots that you could take photos with almost nobody. Don’t go in the grass! + Parades Tips. My favorite is Disney Stars On Parade. To find the good spot for the parade, it’s depending of what kind of photos you want to take and what ambiance you want to have on the photos. Stroll in the park and search your favorite. The parade route is on the park plan. The POPULAR photos spot is on Main Street USA at the beginning of Main Street USA, in front of the kiosk, like that you can to have the Castle in the background. It’s effectively a good photo spot for together large plans and details on the characters or floats. But here, you need to go 1 hour before and Summer as Winter. But you have the best view in waiting! Another one to take into account, here the parade arrive around 15 minutes after his official hour departure. The time that she does her route until Main Street USA, it’s legitimate but I hear so many peoples around me, why the parade is not here at 17h30, she beginning from Fantasyland at 17h30 and, and at 17h45 on Main Street USA. But whatever or you pick your spot, you need to be in the first row and you need to arrive early around 30 minutes before the parade. I highly recommend to watch it one first time before photography it. You could have enjoyed it completely once time and it’s could help you to photograph it the next time. To take characters and details in photos during the parade a zoom lens is necessary. + Disney Illuminations Tips. It’s an of the hardest show to take in photos, between the night fireworks, illuminations on the Castle and water jets and considering that tripods are not allowed in Disneyland Paris as selfie sticks. It’s the most beautiful show but the hardest to take in photos. The best of the best! I highly recommend to go in the very first row in the front of the Castle. But for this spot! You need to go about two hours before or depending on some seasons about when the Castle gallery is closing (it’s on the Disneyland Paris website the hours). The advantage when you’re in the very first row, you can eventually take

Christmas At Disneyland Paris Video

Today it’s my birthday! I’m turning 23. Right! This past year was special and complicated. I will not do a review today because I have my post about 2019 review soon and it’s around the same time. My dream for my birthday day was to do ski in the ski resort next to home but I can’t because of the lack of snow. There was snow, the ski resort already opened a few days but the temperature rise up and all the snow has melted down. The weather planning the back of the snow and cold over the next days and I hope that I could to start ski season between Christmas and New Year. In waiting, I will start to be back at the winter sliding sports slowly today by going at the ice skating. I have finished to editing the videos of my trip at Disneyland Paris during the Christmas season and in the occasion of my birthday, I wanted to share them today here. Because I love Disneyland Paris and it’s something of important who has rhythmed this past year. I hope that this year could be with a lot of Mickey world also. In any case, I want to it! I have two videos, the video of the Disney’s Christmas Parade and the complete video of the holiday season in the parks with a look cinematic. It’s something that I really loved during my trips this year, to works and develop more my videos skills. I absolutely loved! I’m proud of myself! I have progressed a lot! When I look at the video of my day trip at Disneyland Paris for my birthday last year and when I look at the video that I just wrapped this week. I love this progress and I become a result that I love more! I have a lot of progress to do again, I think particularly already at the stabilization, yeah! it’s not easy to filming with a DSLR in the hands and stay stable. But I had something on my wishlist for my birthday for work on this next year. The thing that I love the more, it’s that I have managed to place depth of field in my videos. It’s something that I knew to do in my photos but in the videos is another degree of difficulty. I can do it now! And I love it! Right! Below the two videos of the Christmas season at Disneyland Paris.   Right! Thank you so much at all you who stopped reading my blog this year! Thank you!

Disneyland Paris Photo Book

It’s a few years now that I keep and print my favorite photos in some yearly photo books. Previously, I have only done one book by year where I organized the photos by month with a mix of travel and everyday life photos. This year, I had a want to explore the way to create photos books for each travel that I have done, in more than my yearly photo books. I have chosen to print my photos in photos books because it’s decluttered and minimalism, and I have chosen only one big yearly photo book to keep again here minimalism. But during creating my last year photo book last year, I was frustrated do not be able to place more photos particularly of my travel in my yearly photo books. Right! This summer, I have decided to create a photo book for each travel that I have done in half of the first part of the year. And I was pretty satisfied and I loved! I want to keep going one yearly photo book and now some separate for each travel that I do. It permits me to lighten my yearly photo book and print more photos that I love of my travel. I love this idea! I do my yearly photo books in portrait size, it’s better to keep organize and simple on shelves. When I started to think about my travel photo books over this summer, I had the desire to do my travel photo books in another size to differentiate them from my yearly books. I have chosen the square size and I love it! I love this size for my travel photo books. During the summer, I have done photo books for my ski trip in Alpe d’Huez in January, my solo trip in Paris in April and my family summer trip on the French Riviera in June. After my solo trip at Disneyland Paris in September, I had the want to do a photo book also but when I started booking trips there every month until the end of the year. My ideas were not clear for the exact photo book that I wanted for Disneyland Paris. It’s clear that to do a photo book for each trip every month, it was not minimalism. I kept aside and I thought! After my trip of October and with two trips ahead of planned before the end of the year. I have finally found the idea to wait to be back from all my trips and to reunite all my trips at Disneyland Paris this year in one big single photo book. I haven’t finished all my trips but in October, I have slowly started to create the photo book that I dream for my trips at Disneyland Paris. Creating a real photo book is not easy! I put weeks and sometimes months to create my photo books. I’m irritated by the phone apps who told you that you can create a photo book in 10 minutes. It’s not true! Or it’s not really a good photo book where you could love to look on it over and over. As a photographer, I have a lot of photos and hardly select the ones that I want to print in my photobooks. This works can take me more than one week already! I create and choose all the templates by myself and I make the written layouts separately on Photoshop to have all the designs that I want myself and this works can take me weeks in the function of how much I have to do. I creating and starting over and over until I’m satisfied! And until I feel that I could to love look over and over inside these books. Creating the first photo books yourself can be hard but after practicing a few, it’s getting easier and you know better how and what you want to place in your photo books. But it’s totally worth these weeks of work! Right! Back to my Disneyland Paris photobook! I have worked on it since weeks and I knew how I finally wanted to it, back from my last trip in the beginning of December, I have managed to complete the photos and written layouts of this last trip in a few days to finally order it after to have wait since September to have Disneyland photos in a photo book. I got it in my mailbox last week and I’m so happy about it! I love it so much! I’m happy to have wait since September to print the photos of all my trips at Disneyland Paris in one photo book. Ok! The photo books of my other trips have about 30 pages, my Disneyland Paris photo book has over 100 pages and it was a hard selection because I love to place sometimes only one photo by page. I have all my trips that I have done at Disneyland Paris, the time when I have done one day trips at the beginning of the year and my overnights trips of these last months. It was a hard photo selection! Now, I think I will keep on this idea to create one yearly photo book and some for each travel that I do. Today, I will share a little peek inside the photo book of my trips at Disneyland Paris. I create on the first page an introduction of big lines and I followed with the two next pages where I wanted to write all the parades & shows that I saw and attractions that I have done during all the trips. I have done too a top 15 favorite things of all my trips. I introduced each trip by one or two pages in the function of how much days I spent on my trips, I journaled my days of what I have done. I added the dates at each day journaled. I love to keep photos layouts simple with one photo by page

Disneyland Paris November 2019

Between Christmas decorations and magic! Last week, I was on my November therapy trip to Disneyland Paris during two nights and three full days. The Christmas season to Disneyland Paris has started the weekend before I went so every show was not again available but it was not a problem because there are a lot of shows during the Christmas season and during this trip I could concentrate me on some and during my trip in December I could to concentrate me on the ones that were not available when I was last week. I find that cool, it permits me to have a more relax trip without to have all the shows to watch in the same time. Talk about my trip. It was really amazing! More helpful than my trip in October, I could have some nice calm down times with my flashbacks and anxiety. It was so good! And three precious days! Because currently, I’m always in some hard times and I haven’t talked again here but I have finally started to take Sertraline to see if it’s can help me, it’s not particularly very helpful at this moment but it’s only two weeks ago that I started to take it. Not because I was disappointed, in the contrary it was a really good trip but I will not do a big recap in multiple posts, just in one post with less of photos. Because I’m going twice during the Christmas season and next time I stay more long and like all shows were not available during my trip, I will to do a simple for my November trip and longer posts on my next trip. But it was a really good trip!   DAY 1 Took my TGV at 05h42 am, I had the time to arrival at 09h00 am in the park during the extra magic hours again. Less peoples, I could to do photos and I have done a few attractions with Dumbo, Tea Cups, It’s A Small World and Alice’s Curious Labyrinth. I strolled in the park until to wait 45 minutes before (for good photos spot) the first Christmas parade of the day at 12h00 pm. Oh the music! I love it! It’s so good for the brain! The second Christmas parade is at 01h20 pm and in waiting I drink one hot cocoa and waited. Now, it was crazy! The weather was bad during my trip, I had a lot of rain sometimes sun but rarely and it was cold with about 5 degrees Celcius but any shows were canceled during the three days. But it was crazy when the second parade has started it was not rainy, the sky was so storming dark behind the castle but not rainy and five minutes after that she has started the rain has started until to be so powerful and hailstorm. The crazy thing also is that it was during 10 minutes and even if everyone was going to shelter and the floats started to going faster, it was finished before that the parade was finished. It was crazy and even if I was not able to take photos or videos, I loved this and it makes me feel happy. I don’t know why but it is! Like I’ve stayed under the powerful rain in 10 minutes I was soaked but thanks in my planning it was the time that I go check-in my hotel and take a break after wake up at 04h30 am. And here it was time to put dry clothes. I changed the hotel this time. The two previous times, I took the Vienna House Dream Castle and this time I took the Vienna House Magic Circus, always a hotel partner to Disneyland Paris and it was a change and a new discovery. I loved discovery this one! Around 05h00 pm, I took the shuttle back to the park for the evening. I watched Disney Illuminations under a new angle. I have always watched in front of the castle, now, in reality I was always in front of the castle but I have chosen to go on the side a bit to have a new angle. I haven’t had in mind to shoot or take photos with my DSLR of Disney Illuminations during this trip and it was the desire to try new angles so it was the time. The view was not also good but I loved trying this new angle. The harder thing, on the ground it was so wet of the rain so I was not able to sit down and staying 1 and a half hour stands up without moving is hard. But it was a nice evening! And with extra smiles when a good cast member entertainment everyone and makes laugh everyone in waiting the show. I stayed to take night photos after and I was back to the hotel around 09h00 pm where I watched a Christmas movie and eat my first thing of the day (the mickey shaped cookie above and one apple sauce) before going to sleep and fall asleep so fast. These last weeks, I took about 4 hours to fall asleep every night and this night I took less of 1 hour. Right! After a good therapy day to Disneyland. DAY 2 I have big sleeping troubles since weeks and miss sleeping time and I’m so tired so on this morning, I have chosen do not go during extra magic hours but later to rest me. I was outside around 10h00 am and I stopped by Starbucks from Disney Village to drink one hot cocoa and to have my first holiday cup of the season. Right! Before heading in the park, I went in the hall from the Disneyland hotel where they have a giant Gingerbread house and beautiful Christmas decorations. I have eaten half of one cute frozen cupcake, strolled and I went watching the first Christmas parade of the day at 12h00 pm before right after

Disneyland Paris Fall Video

I shared the dairy and some Fall & Halloween decor photos of my October trip to Disneyland Paris. Now, it’s time to share my videos. I have always fun to take videos to Disneyland Paris even if it’s some challenges to switch from photos to videos during a show. I have to need to see many times the same shows to capture enough of photos and videos. But no matter! I love watching shows so it’s always fun. My favorite thing! On my September trip video, I started to work on a cinematic look, it was hard but I loved working on this new look in my video. For the video of this trip, I knew also that I wanted to work again on a cinematic look video. I worked so much during this trip and I’m glad because I have done so many progress and I managed my goal to have shallow depth of field in my videos. It’s a technic that I dreamed to manage to do in my videos because before I have never managed and I love to do it in my photos. Well! I have two videos, the first my Halloween cinematic video of my trip and the second is the video of Mickey’s Halloween Celebration, the Halloween parade to Disneyland Paris. It’s now something that I love to do, it’s to create some separate videos for the shows. To could watching again and again the shows at home. Halloween watching!   Have you been to Disneyland during Halloween season? Thanks for reading!

Disneyland Paris Fall Photos

Early this week, I shared the travel diary of my Disneyland Paris trip this month and I decided to share my photos of this trip in a separate post. Like usually, I have also some videos in the editing. But today, it’s photos time. Fall is not my favorite season and October is a difficult month but I loved to take photos of the Fall decor. It was the first time that I went to take Fall photos to Disneyland Paris. It was really cool! A random of photos that I took during my three days in the park this month. The Fall/Halloween decor on Main Street USA and Frontierland to Mickey’s Halloween Celebration and Are you brave enough? shows. Right! My favorites of this season were the Halloween decor on the entrance and Main Street USA, the music of the Mickey’s Halloween Celebration parade and the Mickey float in this parade. In the Main Street USA music, they have added some ghosts sounds in the usual music but I didn’t loved, I prefer the classic one. It was cool also, they have done a Halloween pre-show with Disney villains at night before Disney Illuminations and I loved to have a few minutes extra time show on the Castle at night. A really bunch of photos. Pumpkins, leaves and orange color!!! Let’s go! Have you been to Disneyland Paris during the Fall season? Thanks for reading!

How To Prepare His Phone For Disneyland

Prepare and planning his trip to Disneyland is important but one thing that we do not think is to prepare his phone. On any kind of travel, we need to prepare our phone for many reasons, because it’s clear that when you’re outside all day to visit, we need to have the most everything useful tools inside our phone. In this post, I will concentrate it only on how to prepare a phone before going on a trip to Disneyland. Now that I have many trips to Disneyland I have added a few things to my list that I made always before going on a Disneyland trip to optimize my phone. To have done many different kinds of trips to Disneyland and no-Disneyland trips, I think that prepare a phone for Disneyland is different than any other trip. Here, today I will share how I prepare my phone for a Disneyland trip. Install Disneyland apps // The really cool thing when you’re going to Disneyland more than on any other trip is the apps. Install the Disneyland apps permit you to have the maximum of information once there, park hours, plans, attractions hours, restaurants hours, shows hours and the most important for a lot of peoples attractions waiting times. It’s really amazing and it makes easier your trip in the parks. Clean photos in your camera roll // One thing if you take 1000 photos & videos by day during a trip to Disneyland like me, whatever the type of photos that you take. Clean the camera roll of your photos. Like I take a lot of photos, I clean regularly my camera roll but just before going on a trip to Disneyland I look back until at least one month ago and clean. I advise this tip to have more memory of course but also when it’s will the time to clean your Disneyland photos, it’s could easier if you have a cleaned camera roll previously. Install game apps // I haven’t a lot of games on my phone because I do not play a lot with but it’s something that I have done recently and who can be really good. Not passing your trip to play but during your traveling time until Disneyland, during attractions waiting lines,… it’s can useful to occupy your time on this way. Because even if I prefer to watching tv shows to wait a time, it’s can be disagreeable to have a cut in the mid-episode when it’s finally your turn in the attraction, use a game for a few minutes can be better. External Battery // THE M.O.S.T, THE MOST! The most important thing to take with your phone during all your trip and each day in the parks. The phone battery are not so long, and when you add to this look on the Disneyland apps and take photos and videos it’s using again more battery. Right! Usually, when I get in the park at the extra magic hours, my battery is out around 01h00pm. It’s crazy to have any more of battery in the mid-day. Ok! Disneyland can have a few spaces to recharge your battery but it’s so much better to have an external battery to could charge it on the go and do not be blocked in City Hall to recharge your battery. The best is to take a battery who let you recharge your phone multiple times and with many USB plugs if you’re many peoples on the trip. One last thing, do not forget to recharge your external battery the night before, if not it’s risk do not work! Protect your Phone // I have always a case on my phone but it’s something that I saw too many times that peoples don’t protect their phones. It’s their choice! But whatever the kind of phones you have protect it with a simple case and if you have planned to do attractions with water, you can even take a water case to protect it again better. A simple advise. Place your planning in your phone // I do my planner by days on sheets in my laptop that I print and that I take with me on the trip. I usually remember of what my days are planned but for not have to take my sheets each day in my bag. When I create them on my MacBook with the app pages, I export them to PDF and I transfer them in the Evernote app to could look on it when I need and I keep the sheets in the hotel room and I do a recap at the end of the day on it.  It’s easier like that! Journalling app // I love to do it on papers on my planning sheets but you can download an app. I journalling in a few words my days. I write down my expenses, favorite things and a few things that I would love to remember that it’s a good memory where one progresses in my social anxiety. Journalling day by day permits me to write down easier my trip recap on the blog also because when you write down your recap one week after to have edited your photos, you can unconsciously lost little important details that I want to write down to remember them.   These are a few of my tips to prepare good your phone before your trip to Disneyland, it makes easier your trip in the parks! What is your favorite thing to do on your phone before going to Disneyland, let me know it in comments!

Disneyland Paris 2019 Video

I shared the recap of my Disneyland Paris solo trip that I have done in the beginning of September with some photos, now it’s time to sharing the video of the trip. It’s a little special because I haven’t one but three videos. The first one is the video with takes took during all my trips, and again a new different thing, for the first time I decided to do a video with cinematographic looks. It’s hard and I have work to do again to improves my videos. I love the cinematographic looks and I have already planned and looking tips to work on this during my next trip to Disneyland. The two last videos are some videos of the two shows who were during The Lion King & Jungle Festival at Disneyland Paris during all the summer. These are some amazing shows! One show is named The Jungle Book Jive and was played over Central Plaza and Main Street USA, and the second show is named The Lion King and Rhythms Of The Pride Lands and was played at the Frontierland Theater. The theater was recently renovated only for this show and I love it. In the beginning, I have only the first video with a mix of videos taken during all my trip of planned but when I saw that I had enough of takes of each show to create some separate videos for each show. I decided to do it! It’s better to enjoy the show when I want to watch it on a separate video and I kept the original sound that I took with the videos. It’s pretty good to immersive me again in these amazing shows.   It’s a thing that I told a few times over here now, but I love to take photos and to take videos also and editing and creating videos. I generally made a video at each of my trip now. The photos is a good way to remember memories of a trip but videos are again another ones and that I find amazing. More immersive, and immersive me in the videos of my trips help me to reduce my flashbacks during I’m practicing this activity. I spent the last three weeks to editing these three videos, I worked on my editing logical about 3 hours by day and I love this time. Now that I have wrapped these videos, I’m looking, searching tips and work on my video activity to do better videos until I’m ready to shoot my next, in two weeks. Thanks for watching!

What’s In My Bag – Disneyland Edition

Bags and me are a story! I have never liked to take with me a bag when I’m going outside. I know that this is a woman accessory but I don’t love. I’m pretty sure that it’s increasing my social anxiety. One place that it’s not an option to take a bag with me is when I’m going to Disneyland. I leave all day from 04h30am to 11h00pm, more than 500km away from home with 6 hours of TGV in the day and all day walking in the parks. A bag is clearly necessary! During my first day trip last December it was pretty hard to know what I could to have needed during a day like that as it was the first time that I travel on a long and single day. Four day-trips at Disneyland later, I have now my own and the same stuff that I took with me. I thought, it was pretty fun to do a what’s in my bag to share what I take with me, necessary things or who can calming my anxiety during a long day out of the home. ONE // Under Armor Backpack. Before going on my first day trip at Disneyland I was figured that it was not a good thing to take a handbag to carry all day during walking. Well! I looked to buy a backpack like I haven’t one. I was searched for one who has multiple organization options. I have finally found this one and I love it I use it on each of my trip at Disneyland. TWO // Canon DSLR & 18-135mm Lens. This is my currently DSLR with an 18-135mm lens and I love them. The Canon 200D is pretty good and I’m happy with it! Ok! With this big lens it’s heavy all day but it permits me to take good photos with zoom and it’s can particularly useful in some situations. I love to take photos with these two. THREE // External Battery & Charger Cable. FIRST NECESSITY. The external battery is really important on a long day with the cable of course. FOUR // Cozy Scarf. On first, I took in a scarf because it was winter. Now, I take it even when it’s in a heatwave. No worry! I do not use it during the day. In fact, it’s for the travel in the train. I take my TGV very early in the morning and late in the evening after a full day, I try to sleep. I use my TGV rides to rest and sleep. I use the scarf as a little cushion or in the TGV air-conditioned so usually, it’s cold and the cozy side reassures me and calms my anxiety. FIX // Annual Pass Holder. Right! I’m so happy to have it! SIX // Plan of the day. I plan my day before going at Disneyland. I have done a post here. So, I take the planning that I have done to have it with me. SEVEN // Wallet. I have the same wallet since years. It comes from Esprit. Expect money, identity papers and credit cards, I have also my card with my TGV tickets and discount cards who come with. EIGHT // Cream. I have eczema problem, outside during all day. I need to take cream with me. La Roche Poche creams are the only that I use daily. It’s the only ones that my skin support. NINE // iPad. Right! I take my iPad with me in case I want to read or watching some tv shows episodes during my 6 hours TGV rides in the day. But in real! I have never really used it! Like said above I try to sleep in the TGV but I prefer to have it with if I’m in the mood to watching tv shows and again if my TGV is delayed. TEN // Water Bottle. It’s 5€ a little water bottle at Disneyland Paris! I take at least one from home to have one. USEFUL! On my last day trip under the heatwave, I took two bottles that I frozen the night before. It’s really good even if at mi-day after 40 degrees Celcius the two bottles were unfrozen. It permits to have cold drinks longer on hot days.   Other things that I can take in summer. A tee shirt and short to change me if necessary. Sunscreen. Water spray bottle (placed in the refrigerator the night before).   Other things that I can take in winter. A jacket in more. Open gloves (useful to take easier photos).   I think that’s wrap up my essentials in my backpack for a trip to Disneyland! Carry heavy things can to be hard physically for me so I try to stay lighter. The hardest part is like even carrying my DSLR but it’s totally worth it! Take photos at Disneyland is an of my favorite thing in life! In the same time, if you are interested by some good photo spots at Disneyland Paris, check out here!

Disneyland Paris: The Lion King & Jungle Festival

Welcome in a colorful world! Last Tuesday, I have done a therapy visit at Disneyland Paris. I have chosen recently to invest in Disneyland trips every one and a half month. Disneyland is a therapy! All the magic give me positive vibes! Last time, it was in the beginning of June, and I’m so excited because next time, it’s in September and not only a day trip but a trip with nights. It’s could be my second solo trip with nights of the year and I launched me a lot of new challenges during this solo trip. Right! But let’s talk about my day trip last week now! It was a special day on different reasons, one: France was in an extreme heatwave, the temperature rised until 40 degrees celsius and much more in feeling, at 07h00pm, the temperature feelings increased again. Second: when I booked the TGV tickets, I decided to extend my day compared to usually, in my all previous Disneyland day trips, I took my TGV back at 05h00pm for to be back home around 09h00pm. Of the fact we were in summer with extended days, I decided to take the TGV back late so I had my TGV at 08h00pm and I was at home at 11h30pm. I was a cray long and exhausting day in more with the heatwave but I’m so grateful that any of my TGV had troubles or delay with the extreme heatwave, so many trains were delayed and canceled, the day before I had a message of the transportation company that with the heatwave they advisable me to change the day of my trip, but I did not want. Despite had a few troubles because of the heatwave I’m happy do not have changed the day of my trip. I learned a few things and also my physical limits until the malaise and it’s so useful to plan my big Disneyland trip in September. During all the summer, Disneyland Paris has created a new season, The Lion King & Jungle Festival. I have never watched The Lion King movie and I did not know the story, so before my trip I decided to go see in theatre the new The Lion King movie, I have done this time with my sister. It was a nice time but I did not loved the movie and the story, It was so hard to see a dead story just a few days after my grandma passing away. Right! Even if I haven’t loved the movie, I was excited to see the new season The Lion King & Jungle Festival at Disneyland Paris. It’s incredibly amazing! I love this season! All were amazing! The music, costumes, all was pretty beautiful and amazing! The music gives you a good feeling! I usually do not love colorful things but here it was incredibly amazing, I so much loved! During the day, I managed to see the two new shows about this new season, The Jungle Book Jive on central Plaza and the special The Lion King show played in a new theater at Frontierland with music at 360°. With this season Disneyland Paris has done a lot of new food dedicated to the season but unfortunately I was not able to eat because the things don’t worked because of the heatwave. But! I drunk the cutest and best milkshake of my life! I have done a few new attractions that I have never done before like Phantom Manor, Aladdin Flying Carpets, Tea Cups, Casey Jr and I explored more Adventureland and Frontierland. I took advantage of the heatwave and I have done an of my dream, sit on Main Street USA to listening to the loops and watching the view. It was amazing! Heatwave or not, next time I need to plan this again. The biggest trouble, of the fact that I took a later train I was able to see for the first time the parade at 05h30pm (I had my TGV back always before the parade), I went to sit 45 minutes in advance on the spot that I wanted to take photos except it was in the sun at 40 degrees celsius, when the parade was finally here and I wake up of the ground, I felt really really not good so I abandoned to watch it and take photos and I went to sit in an air conditioned at Discovery Arcade. It was a blow but I’m not disappointed. I haven’t seen it but since Discovery Arcade I was able already to hear the soundtrack that I listen since months on youtube. It’s the beginning! I hope next time I could phtograph and watch it! I was so bad for the rest of the day after, I went sit to drink another milkshake and I leave the park around 07h00pm while I have planned to leave it at 07h40pm. I was so bad and the temperature increased again so I decided to go back at the gare station to be the less far of my train back home. In the morning, I took my regularly TGV at 05h50am. I woke up at 4h00am and go to sleep the next day at 01h00am. It was a crazy, long but a good day! Sharing photos now!   A last note. Since I started these day trips at Disneyland Paris in December last year, all the peoples at who I talk about these days or when my mom talks to what I have done, all the peoples tell me that I’m strong and courageous to do some days like this. Because I’m cross half of the country in the two sides on the same day. I live in the east of France and Disneyland Paris is at 30 km from Paris, I live about 500km away from Disneyland Paris. Despite that the TGV is a high-speed train, I took 3 hours to go in the morning and 3h30 to go back home in the night. I did not find crazy me

A Day In The Life – Disneyland Edition

This kind of post it my favorite to reading on other blogs. I love to see how other peoples deal and manage their routines during one complete day. Last year, I have done a day in the life post at each season but this year I was not in the mood to do it. We’ re in the middle of the year and I have done any post like this again. The other day, I thought, why not to do it on a special Disneyland day. My Disneyland days are precious for my mental health. But it’s not some easy access days! They are full and shake up complete my daily routines. I have to face anxiety including my social anxiety. But these are the best ones! The next day followed my Disneyland day last week, I was thinking about my day during editing my photos and I realized that I had ZERO flashbacks during all the day! It’s not happened since months! However, on this day I could have been destabilized on a few situations. But not! I was just good! And my mood was good all the time! It was so good and it’s precious a day like this! I’m grateful to have chosen this day to do a day in the life post, not because it was at Disneyland but to write down my feelings on this particular amazing and different kind of day that usually. My Disneyland day trip was on Tuesday, June 4. On a Disneyland day like this, I setting my alarm clock at 04h15am. 04h15 early that usually at 08h30am. Ouch!!! It’s hard but right it’s for going at Disneyland. I take my medication, get dressed and to do a few morning things. I left home for the gare station at 04h45am for to be around 05h20am. I have my TGV at 05h42am. Before I grab breakfast in the boulangerie at the gare station to eat it in the TGV. On this morning, I had a beautiful sunrise show view during the TGV touching 320km/h speed. Right! I live at 500km away from Disneyland. I have 3 hours of TGV, I try to continue a little my night or see a last time my plans for the day before going in or I simply look the view outside. At 08h42am, I arrived at the gare station of Marne La Vallée, at two minutes walk of the Disneyland Paris park and Walt Disney Studios Park. On this morning, I was again more excited and nervous than during my two previous day trips because I had my first ever annual pass holder that I got a few weeks ago in my mailbox. And I was excited to use it and use the magic hours. On my previous trips, I had to wait that the park opens at 10h00am but this one just arrived, I could to go already in the park. I was nervous because I didn’t know what entry to take with a pass holder. There the principal entry who opens at 10h00am, the entry for the hotels but I didn’t know for the pass holder. Finally, the same entry that the hotels was good. It’s just before 09h00am and I’m in the park. I feel always in a dissociation time at this moment. Because never before last December I could have thinking that I could to be here in Disneyland Paris and in solo. On the beginning of the morning, I have the habit now to snap a few photos on Main Street USA during the walk until the Castle. Right after, I started to go in Fantasyland because it’s my favorite part of the park with Main Street USA and it’s the land where there are the more of attractions open during magic hours. For this first time in the magic hours with my pass holder, I decided to go in my favorite land. My first attraction of the day, I decided to do it’s a small world to start the day with the heady music. Next, I have done Le Carousel de Lancelot. I took photos of Fantasyland during a bit moment and around 10h00am, I left Disneyland park to go at the Walt Disney Studios park. During leaving the park, I thought it was so calm during magic hours and it was so nice to walk with just a few peoples in the park. I was so happy to have experimented the magic hours because it’s amazing! And I do not regret to have to take a little more expensive annual pass holder to have the magic hours in more. Arrived in the Walt Disney Studios, I went on the first attraction that I wanted to do, Studio Tram Tour. I love all about behind the scenes and co, it was my first time and I loved the tour in the tram with some special effects scenes during the tour. Right after, I went to do the attraction Ratatouille with only 2 minutes waiting time in the single rider line. I love this attraction! I have done it on each of my last trips and I decided that it’s a ONE that I could to do each time that I go at the parks. I love it and it’s so fast with the single rider line! It’s in some moments like this that I love to be alone in Disneyland and enjoy by my own. I spent the rest of the morning to take photos inside the park and at 11h30 I went to see the Moteurs, Action… Stunt Show Spectacular. It was a crazy amazing show with stunts.   At 12h00pm, at the end of the show, I tried to find something to eat and I have chosen a sugar marvel waffle. It was fun and tasty! The weather started to be really hot at the mid-day. At 12h50, I went waiting to see the SuperHeroes show. It’s actually the season of superheroes in the Walt Disney Studios. After 20 minutes waiting, a cast member comes to tell that the

Disneyland Paris in Photos – Part 2

Welcome back in a Disney post! My last day trip at Disneyland Paris was in March, I already shared some photos in a first post here. I have again some photos of my trip and today I wanted to share a bunch again for different reasons. Disneyland Paris is my happy place with mountains and skiing! Now that the ski season is over, I’m concentrating me more a lot on Disneyland. Another one is when I’m on some hard days like currently watching my photos and videos taken at Disneyland helps me to feel me a little better. It’s so precious to me! I have my next day trip in Disneyland Paris this summer, I already started to plan this day. And! Since I’m back of Paris I thought what I want to do like a second solo trip this year, I immediately thought to go at Disneyland Paris. And! I’m happy to say that the past weekend I booked my first trip in solo with many nights in Disneyland Paris for September. I love to go on a day and want to do a few day trips again this year but in just one day I miss things, like the parade, night show,… and Disneyland Paris is just the place where I want to go again this year. I have no other place where I want to travel in solo right now for this year! I’m excited! I’m currently in the thought to take an annual pass holder also, like I have one day in summer, many days in September and I want to go at least once in Halloween season and Holiday season. I equally could to choose to go once by month instead of my psychiatrist visits but I did not have taken this decision again. But with the numbers of days that I planned to go, I could to take an annual pass holder! It’s not cheap! But I would love to invest in it. The bonus of my decision is with an annual pass holder, there are extra magic hours in the mornings. It could be really good because the Disneyland Paris parks open at 9h30am and my train arrive at 8h00 so I’m waiting about 1h30. I could do some photos with less of peoples in the parks and one hour in more when you go just on one day trip is to take into account. So, this is one thing who makes my choice to buy me an annual pass holder this month. I can’t wait and I already started to count the day until my next day trip in June but before to add again more photos who could be taken during this trip. A few photos from my day trip to the parks in March that I haven’t shared in my first post.       I’m off on the Disneyland Paris youtube channel to discover things about the parks. Do you love to go at Disneyland or in any Disney parks in function from where you live?

Disneyland Paris Video

What! It’s already two weeks ago today that I was on my day trip at Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney Studios parks. I think at this day every single day. It was an amazing extra day! Outside of my routine with all my anxiety and obsessional thoughts! Currently, I’m planning my solo trip in Paris next month but I’m in the mood and I started to think for another day trip at Disneyland Paris around Summer. One thing at one time! Well! Between my overthinking with my obsessional thoughts, I’m happy to have the memories to think at this day. I took so many photos that I did not finish to edit them all! However, I wrapped the editing of my video. I always take fun to do videos of my trip, photos are good but videos again better with the music and ambiance (particularly on a Disneyland day). I’m just a little disappointed because I had no time to take a lot of different takes because I was concentrated on my goals to shooting a lot of details in photography. I always switch during a parade or show between photos & videos, it’s really complicated sometimes. I could have the need to do twice the same show where once time, I take only photos and on the other only videos. But on one day it’s not possible! I have the problem that with my low condition physical I can’t stay with my big DSLR in my arms up to shooting videos during more than 30 seconds also. Right! It’s in this way that when I shared the post with my photos, I shared also my thought to do a trip at Disneyland Paris and stay a few nights in a Disneyland hotel to have the time. To take so much more videos and photos in the same time! I love to take photos and videos! I’m happy to have a video to remember this day!

Disneyland Paris in Photos

On last Wednesday, I went on a big solo day trip at Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney Studios parks. I had an amazing time! I have done the same kind day trip back in December for my birthday and when I was back home on this night, I knew that I wanted to do it again. I planned one in March and I have planned to go at least twice again this year. One on a day trip and another I thought maybe to stay two-three nights in a Disneyland Hotel to see the night show and take more time. I love taking photography and this trip my goal was to photograph the details. I love the Walt Disney Studios park also (who is at 5 minutes walk away from Disneyland Paris) because they have beautiful shows. I saw Mickey’s Christmas Big Band in December and I loved so much, this time I went to see Mickey and the magician show and it was an amazing, I love it! Let’s talk about a few things: I live 450km away from Disneyland Paris, by taking the TGV I took 3 hours to go. I took my train at 05h30am and I was in front of the park at 8h30 before the park opens. The gare station is at 5 minutes walk to the parks. It’s just perfect! Early to wake up but perfect time! The train back home I took it at 05h00pm and I was at home around 09h00pm because I took a train connection so it was a little longer. During together journeys, I took the time not to fall asleep but rest and it was not too long. In the morning, I was at Disneyland Paris, after the parade around 12h00pm, I went at Walt Disney Studios before around 02h30pm I was back again at Disneyland and let the park around 04h30 for taking my train. Why a day is enough good for me? because I do not really do some attractions but I love strolling around the parks to take photos and watching shows so I don’t waste my time in waiting lines. I have done a few attractions where the waiting lines were short. Thanks, single riders! My favorite parts about Disneyland Paris are Main Street USA and Fantasyland. On this trip, I took the time to eat. But Nutella alert! Because I ate a Nutella crepe for lunch and in the afternoon I even took the time and fight my social anxiety by stopping in a restaurant and eat a Nutella Mickey Waffle. What the best?! Apparently, it’s worth it to fight social anxiety. The weather was good but in the afternoon there have been many rainy showers, I did the souvenirs shops during these times. A little look on my trip at the parks in photos. Grabbing a hot cocoa before take the train back home. Take some Disneyland day trip are some amazing extra times! I love them! They are long and I took a few days to recover them! I can’t wait to come back! I love the ambition in Disneyland Paris and I love to take photographs. Hope you enjoyed my photos!

Ski Trip, Alpe d’Huez Video

On each trip that I go, I have a new life habit. I took already a lot of photos but now I took enough of videos also to create a big video about the trip. It was an evidence that I do it for my ski trip in Alpe d’Huez in January! The photos, it’s good but I love to do videos for remembering and see again and again the ambitions of the places and the actions. To do a video about the ski is again different and better! Because when I shoot videos during I’m skiing, I can see by after how I really skied and I can follow my progress! When I watching the videos I can see on what I have to work. I shooted with my GoPro and iPhone on this trip. I’m excited to watching my video again and again. I love it! And love remembering my trip in video! Love it!

Friday Favorites // New Year Edition

Well! I hope that you have done this first week of 2019 better than me. I had so much anxiety, I tried to breathe at each time but it’s so much harder. But I feel that I need to continue again and again, and that’s could work. I don’t like the new years start! But one thing that I love so much in the beginning of the year, it’s starting a new planner. It’s my second year with an Erin Condren planner. They are absolutely amazing! Last year, I took an hourly layout but this year, I decided to choose a vertical layout. I don’t plan my days by hours! I love it! There is a lot of spaces for write, extra notes pages, monthly notes pages, stickers included with the planner. So complete! My favorite! The amazing, helpful, motivating quotes within too. I received my 2018 yearly photobook. I’m so excited! This is my third year that I create a yearly photobook, I print all my photos of the year. I do not love print each photo, I love assembling at the end of the year all my photos of this year and print them in a photobook. It’s so much organized, minimalism. I organize inside my photos by month. I’m in love with this of 2018 because he is so much bigger than the previous ones, I have about 90 pages and about 500 photos against 60 pages last year. He is so much bigger! I LOVE IT!!! On the first day of the year, I noticed sometimes of weird. In fact all my pullovers/sweats from last year are too short. I grew up since last year! Right! I don’t know why thinking about. How it is possible? I have twenty-two years old! I took about 4 cm in height but I grew up in length of my arms too. Right! It explains maybe my tendinitis in my wrists and my sometimes painful legs/knees. So, I have needed to buy me new clothes, to find new favorites pullover this week was not easy. I’m extremely difficult when I buy something and again more clothes it’s the minimalist life. But! When I fall in love with a pullover, I fall in love! I found this one, this one, and this one this week. My first day skiing of the season on sunday is of course a favorite. This week, I started an of my 2019 goal! Drink smoothies. I start easily, I’m looking for easy recipes… I found this one – this week, I tried two different recipes, banana and banana choco. I love them so much! It’s the beginning in my smoothies world. Next week I want to try with strawberries. This colors puzzle is cool! I currently to building it. It’s so different than the others 1000 pieces puzzles. It looks easier because it’s by colors. But no! It isn’t! It’s more difficult. I love it!   Well! That wraps my favorites of the week. This weekend you could probably find me to breathe for fighting my anxiety.

Why going in solo at Disneyland

Last month, I had the occasion to go on a day trip at Disneyland Paris in solo. I paid me this trip for my birthday. I was an amazing day except that I was a little sick because a few days ago I had the flu. I did not have anymore of fever on the day I went but I was really bad again so I did not feel the big magic of the Disney world. I’m a little sad about but I’m happy like even of my day. I was a beautiful day (side weather too) and I do not regret to paid me this trip like my birthday gift. Another thing that I do not regret… it’s to be go in solo! I have chosen to go on a day trip only and do not sleep in a Disney hotel because I wanted just go for a day. I took a TGV at 05h50am and I went arrived at Disneyland around 8h30. In the same way, I left Disneyland around 04h30pm and I was back home around 09h00pm. I was worried a little when I booked the train tickets than 6 hours of train even divided by 2 in the day it’s so much. But I wanted to do this day trip so I decided to do it. Finally, it’s not so long! On the morning TGV, I finished sleeping half and on the TGV back, I was tired of my big day that I slept half too. I did not see the time passed in the trains. I’m back of my trip and I collected many reasons why going in solo at Disneyland. There are so good reasons! I was at Disneyland Paris but I think that these benefits to go in solo apply at all Disney parks around the world because these are some simple and easy benefits.   Your plans. An of the biggest benefit to going at Disneyland in solo it’s that you can to do your plans. And only your! You can do what plans, things, attractions that you want without having to wait or consider others peoples plans than if you are with family or friends. I think, it’s the biggest and better benefit to going in solo at Disney. Photography. You are a photographer like me or you love to take photos. Disneyland is an of the beautiful places of the world to take photos! Take times for captures beautiful with details photos is not easy when you are accompanied. Because for take and concentrate on, you may have to be staying 10 minutes without moving. When you are accompanied, it’s really difficult to impose these photography times at the other peoples, already than Disneyland is a place where the time miss. The benefit to be in solo is that you can stay and take the time that you want for capture the photography that you want. It was my favorite time to be in solo on my trip. I was able to stay 10 minutes in the front of Le Chateau de la Belle au Bois dormant for taking the photos that I wanted. Single Riders. I have not done a lot of attractions on my trip at Disneyland Paris but I have done The Ratatouille attraction. There was a single rider line! If the normal line waiting was about 1 hour, the single rider was of 10 minutes. And in about 10 minutes, I was already outside and I did this amazing attraction and say that the normal line was of 1 hour. The single rider line is not available on all attractions but it’s really amazing when you are in solo. I think it’s the biggest benefit to going in solo at Disneyland mainly if you want to do a lot of attractions. Less expensive. It’s another benefit who can to be in consideration for some peoples, going in solo at Disneyland is so much less expensive than going with the family or friends. It’s not the same experience to do Disneyland in solo than with friends. But if you are ready to go in solo, financially it’s worth it! On any trips going in solo is less expensive and Disneyland do not escape!   No matter what are the benefits, I think going in family at the Disney parks can be fun but going in solo that’s worth it to do the experience at least once time in the life. It’s can to be so good a Disney trip in solo. And to be fun in other ways! Do you have already did a trip in solo in a Disney park? I would love to hear your experiences!

Birthday at Disneyland Paris 2018

I’m home from Disneyland Paris! Monday, I spent a day at Disneyland Paris for my birthday. This year, I wanted for the first time to celebrate my birthday and after thoughts, I’m going on to do a Disneyland Paris trip. I was one time back in 2012 at Disney with my family. For this trip, I decided to go on one day and in solo for wrapping the year (2018) or I started to travel in solo. I went by tgv. I left home at 05h00am and got have 3 hours of ride to go at Disneyland. Way back at 05h00pm by tgv with a connection to Strasbourg. I was at home at 09h00pm. I was such a big day. Magical! But really hard also! Because a few days before I had the flu, on sunday the fever was down but on monday, I had a lot of headaches and some sick times again. Well! My head was not in the right place so I did not manage to have the big feeling of this magical place. I’m a little sad! But now I have all the memories! And I feel the magic! I started to planned this birthday trip months ago, and when I discovered also that this year it’s Mickey 90th Birthday and it is celebrated in all the parks. I found that fun! That I choose this same year for going at Disneyland for my birthday. Little fun! I arrived in front of the park around 08h30. I was sunrise and so beautiful! The park opens at 10h00am but finally the doors were already opening at 9h30am. Right! Cool! And the day started by taking photos on Main Street USA. My favorite place about the park. In the morning, I stroll in the Castle. I did It’s a Small World. Alice’s Curious Labyrinth. Before backing on Main Street USA around 11h30am for the christmas parade. The christmas parade was amazing. It was my favorite time about the day. It was so festive and the christmas music who accompanied it was so the best. Just follow the parade, I left the Disneyland Park and going in the Walt Disney Studios. I spent the big part of my afternoon there. I took the show representation at 12h50pm and assisted at the Mickey Christmas Big Band show. It was a seriously amazing show! I love it so much! All from the costumes to the christmas music like Let it Snow, Jingle Bells, Mickey played drums. It was amazing.! After the show I walked, eaten a little and I went going to ride the Ratatouille attraction. Well! The bonus to going in solo at Disneyland! There is single riders line. The normal line waiting was 55 minutes, in 10 minutes I had already finish the attraction. It’s awesome! Right! I do not really do attractions. It’s not my thing! But I love Ratatouille. It’s fun! In 4D. I went at the Art of Disney Animation. It was so cool for me who loves all the cameras and behind the scenes. Around 03h20pm. Another show. Outside at the bottom of The Hollywood Tower this time. It was #SurpriseMickey. A little show about Minnie does a surprise for Mickey’s birthday. It was such cool! After that, I say bye to Walt Disney Studios and I come back at Disneyland Park for my last hour. I stayed on Main Street USA and did all the souvenirs shops. At 04h30pm I left the park for the gare station. I wanted to stay a little again to see the christmas decorations lights in dark but I was not able. Too tired after this big day and about 17000 steps and again sick times from my last day’s flu. I took the way and say bye to Disneyland Paris. But before I took a little tour in the Disneyland Hotel Hall to see this beautiful, giant and real gingerbread house. It was just so beautiful! I grabbed a delicious hot cocoa at the gare and catch up my tgv at the Gare de Marne La Vallée (just next five minutes from the parks, so practical) after a connection at Strasbourg around 07h00pm, I was at home around 09h00pm. What a big day! I was a beautiful and amazing day despite that I did not feel the big Disney magic because of my flu sides again. I did not find long the 3 hours of tgv in the morning and the 3 hours back home in evening. I had the impression that it was so short. I tried to sleep during the rides. I’m happy to have managed my goal to go at Disneyland Paris this year for my birthday. I could never forget it! In solo, I was such good, I could to do what I wanted me and take the time to take all the photos that I wanted. What a exceptional day!

Cat Photography

Recently, I took a big decision… Since a lot of time I had it in my head but I did not do before… but I read a post of a blogger that I follow and who recently lost his dog of cancer and she consecrated a post about his dog with a lot of beautiful photos.   I love to do photos sessions of my cat during special holidays, Christmas,… but I never really took a real photo session in his natural environment, with her favorites toys, things that she loves,… when I saw the photos of the bloggers with her dog. I told me, a day, I could lose my cat and what memories I want to do have? The real memories are in my head and that’s could to be the only real and best memories. But I could be loving to have beautiful photos of my cat for accompanied these memories. Where for when I could talking to someone of my memories with my sweet “Leo”.   About my cat and photos: I love taking my cat in photography, it’s an of my best thing in life but when I took photos session with Christmas theme,… she doesn’t loved so after that I did not test anymore for taking photos sessions with her. I want me but I did not want that my cat is uncomfortable.   But when I saw the post on a blog. I really told me that I wanted more beautiful photos of my cat… But I had in the ideas to do on a different way that during my Christmas theme photos sessions. The idea was to do some photos in her natural world, my cat is an indoor cat except when it’s hot outside, so I told me that’s could not much complicated. I took and have chosen all her favorites stuff/toys,… and I added in the sessions a lot of cuddles for her and me, like that us together we are happy!   I did five photos sessions with until today in the last couple of weeks. All was a success except the last because it’s really hot in France and my cat wants just to be outside when it’s hot. When I faced the refusal of my cat I canceled the session for that she is not uncomfortable. I just want a good and cuddle time between us.   Few months ago, I did a post four things about my cat here. Here, in the sessions I use her favorites things. My cat loves blankets, furs, little mousses or balls, shrimps, whipped cream, these are her favorites things. The thing she loves the best it’s snuggling, snuggling and again snuggling, I can’t a lot cuddling her in cause of my allergies so during the sessions I take the time to cuddles her. It’s just so good.   My lovely Leo. You are so sweet. I love you so much. My heart is full with you.

A Day In The Life {Summer Edition}

Hi! It’s a “A Day In The Life” posts Summer Edition.   I love to do “A Day In The Life” posts, I don’t why exactly but I love to return in back and see how my days were and to do the best for found new things for that my days are again better and I love see that in despite of my mental disorders and some bad days, I’m always here and… happy on some days. I love all these kinds of posts to recap and return to see on few months later. I love read also these kinds of posts from others bloggers, see how is their life, found inspiration in their best things.   Last year, I told me that this year, I will to do four a day in the life posts, one each season. You can found my Winter Edition 2018 and my Spring Edition 2018.   And now for today it’s my SUMMER EDITION.   The day that I review today it’s Tuesday 31st July, it was a typical summer day in my life and… a special day a little too because the 31st July include my favorite annual night of the year. I let you see why below.   Let’s start. I put my alarm clock for 8h30am. And here a screenshot of my favorite sleep app on my iPhone, it’s Sleep Cycle. I record every nights my sleep with this app and I love looking to see how my sleep was. I understood better my sleep with this app, besides the fact to see when and how much time I was awake, sleeping or in a deep sleep, I love see my percentage of sleep quality and now when I wake up I know before watching the chart how my sleep quality was because now I know recognize the signs who tell that I had a good or bad sleep. And for the alarm clock, the app use your best sleep phase for wake up you slowly and comfortable during 30 minutes. Since their last update, I can set my wake up hours directly on my Apple Watch also, it’s too cool. I could talk about this app in the next few times in a dedicated to her post. Follow wake up, I take my breakfast, in summer and on the early sunshine and hot days I take my breakfast outside on the terrace. This day, it was a milk cereals bowl with a strawberry smoothie… and my medication, of course, Lamictal 25mg. Fact note: On this day, I couldn’t finish my cereals bowl because a butterfly has decided to land in my bowl. When I eat my breakfast outside on the terrace and that it’s sunshine and early hot, I love to take a quiet time just after, stay on the chair and stay here for feeling the early hot weather. This day I took about 15 minutes. I follow by dressing me,… all kind morning things. Recently, I did few photos sessions with my cat and on this morning I had planned one… If my cat was always so sweet during the past sessions, on this morning, she did not want that I do some photos of her… she wanted just go out because it’s really hot these days in my city and my cat loves hot days. She hidden her behind my bed so same if I love to take photos of my cat, I decided it must be a good time of play and cuddles that she loves and not a time where she is uncomfortable. When I saw that she did not want, I stopped the session and I let her go out, I told me I could plan another day. 10h 30am. I took a picnic snack in my backyard, nutella sandwich and a multi-fruits Capri-Sun. I directly followed by play with my bow, I love playing with and I was a little angry on this day in cause of a BAD comment that I saw on Instagram on a photo of a family-blogger that I follow, they have a 6 years old adopted girl who struggling with visible healthy issues and this girl is so strong she is my INSPIRATION, I was so bad and angry when I saw that… I tried to take out my anger by playing with my bow but I did not manage to play really good on this day but I took out a little of my anger like even. 11h00am. I went in my bedroom for watching a little of Malcolm in the Middle and… working on my blog. I recently switched from wordpress.com to wordpress.org for more liberty and it was a hard work, I struggled with some problems and I do not fixed again all problems. But I love to work on my blog so it was a good time. 12h30pm. Eating lunch. Rice with sauce carbonara. I do not eat a lot these times. I’m in a phase like that and eating inside because outside it was really too much hot. It’s 33°C/92°F and a feeling of 37°C/99°F. Between 02h00pm to 03h30pm, I worked again on my blog during watching Malcolm. I love watch sometimes this tv show, it’s a tv show that I watch since a long time and he accompanied me few years back when I was a teen depressed with self harm acts and suicidal ideas, when I watched it, I laughed and I felt better during the time to watch. This tv show was a lot with me. After I took a little quiet time/nap on my bed. 04h20pm. It was time for go in the outdoor spa and pool. I spent good times to apply sunscreens with my new favorite Anthelios Comfort Lotion. I spent time about 1h30 outside in the backyard, I mixed between spa, pool and relax on the lounge chair. Usually, I spend a little more time but this day I wanted to be ready early for my night. After my shower and take care of my skin by applied hydrate
