Parc Asterix

Last weekend some friends and I went to Parc Asterix. It's a type of amusement park outside of Paris. Unfortunately the weather was really unpleasant and we weren't able to enjoy all the water rides (there were four). But the park has some really good roller coasters.

I'm glad I went because I've wanted to go since I got here. Asterix is a famous French comic/cartoon that all French people know and love and I wanted to see the park before I left but I have to admit, I prefer EuroDisney. Maybe it's because I am American or maybe EuroDisney's just better, but I would definitely go back to Disney and I have no desire to visit Asterix again. Tickets to the two parks cost about the same so if I'm going to spend that kind of money (around 60 dollars) I think I'd prefer spending the day at Disney.

welcome back, noticed you yesterday but didn't have time to comment. Would love to catch up via email too.

Sounds like a cool park to visit. I'm super curious to know how life has been treating you, and I know what you mean about not really wanting to blog after working on the computer all day!

I've been wanting to check out Parc Asterix, though somehow I think my scary roller coaster days are over. Don't know when that happened. Glad to see you're still around!
