Paris!
Julia’s been blogging a bit at her personal site: www.HaveyoueverHeardofThat.com and here’s a recap of those posts:

We arrived in Paris two days ago but I haven’t blogged about it yet because I’m too lazy. Yesterday was really fun, but caused all of notre (our) feet to hurt. We went to Notre Dame and it was…huge. The biggest and most detailed church I have ever seen. It was amazing! We walked the streets for about an hour and we looked for souvenirs. My dad didn’t like that. At all. And to top it off, someone ripped him off and didn’t give him enough change! I just woke up so my writing isn’t very good, but oh well. We mustn’t dwell on the quality of the writing itself but the information that it possesses. (I totally disagree with that by the way) I’m very tired right now. We ate at McCaffee (a french McDonalds) and we ate Croissants. I love Paris!!! I could live here! This Morning we’re going to see the Eiffel Tower! That’s my favorite part of Paris. I bought a necklace yesterday with an eiffel tower charm!
Good Bye!

EUROPE TRIP: 4 trains, 1 day, tired me

“Gettin on that midnight train to Oslo…Woo woo!” That is what I was singing this morning when we ever so graciously dragged ourselves out of our nice little bed and breakfast to the train station in Voss at midnight this morning/middle of the night. We got on our train to Oslo and I guess we were supposed to sleep, but that didn’t turn out well for any of us. So now, here we are, on our third train of the day and moms asleep, the brother is uploding pictures with a tired face and dad is watching me write this. I think we’re in Sweden, but who really knows for sure? … There’s really good chocolate on this train. It’s milk chocolate with rasberries or something in it….it makes me happy. I think it’s pretty cool–blogging from a train in a foreign country! That’s a first for me! Tonight (on our fourth train) we get BEDS! Halleluja!

Norway…day one

We are finally settled in to nice Bed and Breakfast in Voss, Norway! We went around town today and saw some cool stuff…like a church that was built in 1277. TWELVE SEVENTY SEVEN! That was before dinosaurs! ……just kidding. But it was a cool church…to tell you the truth, I don’t have much to say yet. Other than Norway is beautiful and today was what we call a “take it easy and don’t do a whole bunch of stuff because we’re still getting used to the time difference” day. I think I’m going to take nap now. Goodbye!
