I have been home for almost a week… boy it is nice to be home. I do miss France already and I want to share some “final” family vacation pictures. I have already posted “typical” tourist pictures… and have saved “my kind of pictures” for this last post. I hope you enjoy these unconventional vacation pictures.
We took the TGV last Sunday to Paris the night before our flight home. Isabelle’s sister and nephew took us to the train station and you can see them in this “selfie”… (is it still a selfie if there is a group?)
I love the TGV and they have an interesting advertisement campaign this year. Here is an example of one of those advertisements. Ben and I decided we could create one as well using a phone and Gwen. (Ben’s sister… while she was sleeping)
I have more advertisements…. I saw one for an Opera the first day I arrived in Strasbourg. I am not much of an Opera guy… but if this publicity is anything close to the actual opera I really want to see it.
This was not the only “gore” based advertisement. I saw another and at first I thought it had been “vandalized”… As I looked closer I realized that it had not been… it was designed this way. (oh those edgy French)
Kind of gross huh…
Speaking of gross… This is the toilet paper at my mother in laws house. The “Soft & Saugstark” made me wonder… what is “saugstark”? I decided to “google translate” this…
I had assumed that “saugstark” was German… but google tells me that it is Norwegian for “Juicy”. I was using “SOFT and JUICY” toilet paper… hmm Gross.
Boy… I know this is random… and it is only going to get worse…
This is all for France… Hope there was at least one picture that made you smile!
