    Really enjoying your trip report. Thanks for doing it. We who can't go are living vicariously through your travels. You have some very nice photos.

    One query - the little train that you took in Corsica. Was the tour in English? How was the tour?

    The tour was a good way to see the island, and I think it was money well spent. We did have a family that made it less enjoyable sitting several rows in front of us...the husband was late and the wife held up the train from leaving waiting for him, and she had her baby in a backpack carrier and when she sat, she almost squished him...the baby cried and yelled the entire ride, which would have been okay but the grandma with them spoke very loudly to the baby the entire time. LOUD. The mom kept posing in front of stuff including the train making the peace sign, which I thought was hilarious (I want to start a "no peace sign in photos" movement!)

    The driver of the train spoke ZERO English...but they had a recorded commentary that played on and off throughout, both in English and in French, describing what we were driving past and telling the history of the places. That was helpful because we would have had no idea what anything was without that!

    Love the report, it's like reading my own diary if I could write that well! We enjoyed touring with you, and now the report is where I am sending my friends, it is so well put together! You certainly bring back the memories of the greatest trip ever. Thanks again, Bill & Susan

    That would be great, there aren't many of those, you know. I have a few of you guys, but nothing as good as you were taking with your great camera.

    Great trip report!

    Your pictures are amazing!

    I really like the one (I think it's Saint-Paul) with the stairs between two buildings, wow!

    Thank you for making us discover these beautiful places!

    Thanks! It was truly one of my life's greatest experiences. There isn't much I would change...and I would go again next week if I could. It was truly such a complete pleasure. Disney did it so well, I don't think that it would have been such a wonderful experience (or as wonderful, anyway) without the awesome cast members and the legendary Disney service. Everything is just so smooth...the debarking for ports, getting back on...so smooth and organized. Even the check in process in the new weird port wasn't bad! The whole thing seems like a dream, it was so magical.
