Thanks! You know, the funny thing is that sometimes I took that history for granted because it was all I knew. Then you realize when you tell people about it, how special it is.

My Grandma is still alive. She's doing well enough. She lives next door to me and we care for her daily. My Grandpa passed away in 1992. Sometimes I can't believe it's been that long. He had a pretty severe stroke in the late eighties and he just deteriorated from there.

We will actually be using all three forms of transportation you mentioned. Very exciting indeed. I'll go into more detail soon.

Im subbing too!
This sounds like its going to be a brilliant trip and that is some pretty amazing family history you have. You should write it down for future generations. We had some interesting tapes of my Great grandmother talking about the Irish civil move for independance in 1916 but unfortunately lost them.
Cant wait to hear all your plans

That's some great maternal family history. I have to go back to my great grandparents before I hit anyone not born in Canada so I like to listen to other people's immigration stories.
Belgium looks gorgeous. I've already learned something I think I knew but I forgot -- the dual language thing. Very cool.

I've followed along on many of your TR, but never posted. I have to say I'm so excited for you for this trip and can't wait to hear all about it. I, too, get heckled for eating mayo on my fries. Ketchup is yucky. I spent some time as an exchange student in Germany and that's where I picked that up. My DS prefers mayo, too!

Hi I'm here. I can't wait to hear all about this one. It's going to be great. Is it just you and your parents or will your brothers be joining you for a family trip?

I don't think I've ever read a trip report that included Disneyland Paris.

I'm glad you're here. It really is something that we should write down. I never thought about it. That's awesome about the tapes, but sad that they were lost.

When I was a kid, I thought I was the coolest because my mom immigrated here. I love listening to all kinds of stories about people coming to the U.S.

Yay, you came out of lurkdom!

Mayo is the way to go. And anyone who says otherwise....have clearly been trying Miracle Whip, and not real mayo.

Thanks! I try to inject a little bit of humor in everything. Makes life a little easier to bear. I love traveling with my parents, so this is going to be awesome for us.

Glad you're here! I agree about seeing things that aren't typical, but you'd be surprised how quickly you get drawn in by the things that everyone visits, like the Eiffel Tower and such. I never thought I'd be like that, but there are certain things you can't go and not see.

It's just going to be my parents and I. This trip has been a long time coming for us. I would love for us all to be going, but it's just not in the cards. Plus, none of them have passports. Hahaha. They'd have to get on that right away!

Yay, Mary Ellen!

Glad you like the blond hair. I'm actually blond naturally, just had it dark for a while. But man, dark hair is hard to come out of when you're light! It's taken me what seems like forever to get it to where I almost want it.

My dad is hilarious, and those faces are a regular occurrence. The man just cannot keep a straight face with anything. Or smile normally for that matter.

Hi Megan!

Okay, I love Disney World, but had I been given the option to pick between the two at high school graduation, I would have picked Europe. That being said though, I was glad that I was older the first time we visited, because I think it made more of an impact.

Oh yeah, a cruise, Hawaii, and much much more is on my list of things to do also!

Joining in!

Your trip sounds awesome!

My husband, our daughter, and I moved to Switzerland almost a year ago and we have been traveling quite a bit, but haven't yet made it to Belgium or Luxembourg (or DLP!), so I am looking forward to reading about these places on your PTR/TR.
