Me and my sister Eleanor, 1 week staying at Hipark Serris.
After a not so great sleep due to excitment, woke up about 9 am and got the last few bit sorted and soon 11 am came around and we made our way to the station. Journey down to London was smooth and on time, got into st pancras for about 1pm. Had about 2 hours till our Eurostar but by time we'd printed tickets, gone to the loo, picked up a starbucks and some food from pret it was soon time to go check in. Check in was super fast, we went to the end, bypassed everyone queuing with home printout tickets, straight to the scanning ticket machine (dont know what its called but you know what I mean?), through what seemed to be our own personal security, and then usherd to the right to a completly empty passport check, must have taken us 5 mins, if not less to get through it all. We did lose our starbucks straws in the bag check machine though but was all good, just went and got a couple from cafe nero. Neways found some comfy seats and waited about 30mins and then it was time to board. Had great seats, coach 5, seats at the end of the carriage by baggage so could keep a eye out.. I always get super paranoid about these things. As we left the seats next to us were empty so we had a row each so we made the most of it and got all comfy :) Journey was again super smooth and before we knew it we was arriving in Lille. Jumped of the train and into the main hall and 5 mins later they anounced our platform. Now me being the silly person I am for some reason had it in my head that we were in coach 5.. could be something to do with the eurostar being coach 5 but anyway we climbed onto the train, loaded luggage and found our seats, someone was sat in them, not wanting to make a fuss I just though we would sit in some other seats and if anyone came we would just move somewhere else. Anyways someone did come right at the last min, didnt matter though as the carriage was empty, probably about 8 people in the whole carriage so we just went and sat somewhere else. My sister then pipes up, arn't we supposed to be in coach 6!! Checked the tickets and yes we was. As the carriage was empty we just decided to stay where we was. That was untill we got to CDG, as we pulled up we noticed loadsss of people on the platform so we grabbed our things and made our way to the end of the carriage and decided to just wait there as knew it was only 10mins from cdg, good job we moved the carriage was now packed!! 10 mins later we were jumping of the train into Disney!! Felt sooo good to be home! Anyway crossed the road to find that the 50 hotel shuttlebus was in so jumped on and 5 mins later were at the hipark. First impressions, friendly staff and looks beautiful in reception but the room is tiny! I was expecting small as seen pictures but wow, it really is tiny. Anyways unpacked and then walked up to the shopping centre, therestaurants outside look beautiful so promised ourselves we would go have a meal there one evening. Walked though the shopping centre till we came to auchan and got some essentials, spent a good 1.30hours in there, the place is massive!!! Then we walked back via the carpark as the other half of the centre was now shut, even the carpark was nice, had nice music playing as we walked through it, felt so relaxed and happy, I want to live here!!! Anyways back to the hotel had a mug shot each as it was now 10.30 and hadnt had anything since lunch but too tired to cook. Made it to bed about 11.30 but couldnt sleep, its now 1.30am and i'm writing this, the wifi isnt working in the room so will be posted when I find wifi, if you are reading it, then yay I found some :)
Anyways more to come :)
