Top 5 Disneyland Paris Experiences

Note this does not say attractions. It’s not the top 5 attractions. It’s the top 5 experiences I had on my May 2017 trip. An experience can be almost anything. It may be an attraction or it may be something as nebulous as a moment that made the Disneyland Paris …

Outer Rim Expedition: Preparation

UPDATE (10.6.2017): Inevitably the idea of circumventing the galaxy on some grand solo expedition was a delusion and I have returned to occupied space very early in. There is a small expedition kicking off to do exactly the same thing though with gathering waypoints every two weeks. I am going …

Board Gaming The Galactic Civil War

The last board game I purchased was Star Wars: Rebellion. It’s a pretty amazing game, the only real disadvantage it has is it’s only a two-player game and it takes about 4-5 hours to player, or even longer if you’re not familiar with the rules yet. Despite all this, if …

Doing Disney Solo!

I’m currently on day seven of my Disney World Vlogs on my YouTube Channel. I thought it would be worth giving the overall low down of the solo trip now and how and why it worked. I could wait until the end, as I do cover this topic from my …
