    After a very comfortable flight and some delicious French food mid-air, we've landed at Paris Orly.

    You're inspiring me to do that before the weather turns unbearably hot here.

    I agree about flying in the front of the bus! It’s so hard to go back to reality! I’ve looked at La Compagnie - seems like a nice way to fly.
    30/500 yesterday, weights and yoga in front of the tv, too! Hoping to get in some long walks this week - we’re expecting spring temperatures

    60 minutes of walking Saturday afternoon and a 45-minute workout Sunday morning

    250/1200

    We've been lucky in our weather this week-after getting a foot of snow Monday, it warmed up and has been actually pleasant most days.

    I hope you do get those spring temps soon. We're certainly enjoying them. It's a nice change.

    P.S. I just saw your note about the deer in your area. That's a lot of deer on your property! I've noticed this year that I've started seeing one or two deer grazing in the medians or in someone's front yard in our town but nothing close to those numbers. The developers here are clearing so much of the forested habitat that it wouldn't surprise me if we do start seeing frequent large numbers in residential areas, though. The Lorax would not approve.

    It’s so easy to get to Paris for a day - the Eurostar is great. A day in Paris is worth it, and would whet your appetite to return! We’ll be there in October too, at the end of a river cruise to celebrate our 40th anniversary.

    Hello! @Twilight Sparkle , what an awesome idea for this month! I love exercising my imagination, especially for a Disney Trip!

    Wow! We have a lot of blue on the board today. Congrats to me (Twilight Sparkle), MikeNamez, piglet1979, BonnieF, Elizabeth Smith, and our TEAM for reaching dans l'air bleu! :flower1::flower1::flower1:

    The Magical Shuttle also services Paris-Orly airport, so let's hop on that and head towards Disneyland Paris!!!! Ears on, everyone!

    [​IMG]

    Time for a group vote. Where should the shuttle take us? Here is the scoop on the Disneyland Paris hotels:

    https://www.disneylandparis.com/en-us/hotels/

    Everyone vote for one, and we will see where we end up.

    The location sounds great to me, so I'll vote for Disneyland Hotel.

    Forgot to check in a couple days ago - not sure what my goal is because this is our big trip month... I usually only count exercise minutes, not "active" minutes, so lets call it 500 minutes for the month.

    Off to a good start with an 80 min walk yesterday & 65 minutes today - first time it's been above freezing in forever so I got out and did some nice long walks!

    I also vote for Disneyland Hotel! I would love to roll out of the lobby and straight into the park!
