Here, Listen to an 800-Year-Old Icelandic Hymn Sung in a German Train Station

I’m following this band on Facebook-they are freaking amazing!!! I hope you enjoy the clip! You would never find people doing this in the U.S., this is just one example of why I want to live in Europe, super cool, random people :-))

Whatever

Because why wouldn’t you?

And yes, like you, and because we are nerds, it reminded me of parts of the Lord of the Rings soundtrack.

Healthier Food Choices at Disney Parks

I very rarely eat “fast food”. Sometimes when I travel I eat foods that I’m not use to, then I don’t feel so great. You know what I mean. You get that heavy, bloated feeling. It’s easy to find the fun stuff like pizza, churros or popcorn (see my upcoming post about that! LoL), but it’s not as fun as it use to be. I usually bring some food with me when I travel. Such as trail mix, instant oatmeal, protein bars,etc, but those aren’t meals. I like to have a least one real meal per day. When I took my niece to Disneyland a few weeks ago, she really liked to have 3 meals a day, LoL! I don’t like to eat that much, but this trip was about her, so we ate 3 square meals every day.

Look at this beautiful salad! That was my dinner. Complete with craisons, nuts and golden California raisins, my tummy was so happy! The dressing was a simple vinaigrette. Jessica chose a pesto and cheese filled ravioli, topped with pine nuts, tomatoes and a bit of Parmesan! Of course I had to try one 😉 I stay away from pastas and cheeses, but this was a relatively “healthier” alternative to say, nacho’s or something.

You may have to search a bit to find healthier types of food, but it’s out there 🙂
