The Official TPR Spain & Mini-Europe Trip 2007 Thread


Recommended Posts

Hey, it might be funny to you, but for me, that kind of revelation is rather traumatic!! I had no idea I sounded British, and finding out from a stranger on an internet forum... that's just cruel.

 

Lou, that video clip of ER II storming into a photo shoot saying "I've had enough of dressing up like this".......well I rest my case-

 

Lou - Queen of the UK Brits TPR style (with just a hint of the black sheep Princess Margaret thrown in for good measure.."I say you over there...where are my bloody fags?")

I never thought Lou sounded so... british.

70+ pages, and still my favorite quote thus far.

 

 

 

Scott "Yeah, what's with British folks having a British accent?" B.

Awww, Lou, don't worry. I actually like the accent. It's got a classy sophisticated sound to it. And the good thing about having it is that you'll never be mistaken for a dumb, arrogant American.

Today started our "Mini-Europe" part of the trip! A short, 4-day whirlwind tour of Klotten, Tripsdrill, Holiday Park, Toverland, and Phantasialand.

 

We got in everything, though!

 

The saddest part was having to leave about 1/2 of the group behind in Spain, but we picked up about 20 people! Yay!!!

 

Onto some photos.....

They are more "do it yourself" rides at Klotten...like the happy fun slide!

Is it Dan's goofy smile or the cone shaped head that makes this photo so damn funny? =)

TP Dave sounds freaking British! The "Northerner" in Loo is much easier to understand. I guess the superior linguistic skills are more defined up there.

Never seen so many OMG/WTF expressions from the TPR crew than those on Nautic Jet.

 

Got to say that Dan looks like he is levitating the boat and about to shoot off into hyperspace, like something out of the Jeffersons

 

(I guess anyone over the age of Old JJ Man will get that reference.....not many then )

I'll have you know i speak proper English, none of this Northern rubbish! If you can't understand it that means you're speaking the language wrong!

On that note, the time is now "forty-five to quarter to eleven"

 

I can't believe i lost that race! I was by far the largest person and i cheated. I'll beat elissa one of these days

And how scared does Ed look in that photo?!

Klotti coaster looks insane! The happy fun slide doesn't look bad either! Is that the same slide Elissa got that massive bruise from?

 

I wonder if anyone has ever tipped over in the jumping boat thing. That would suck!

Well we pushed the boat up to it's limits and we survived, only a couple of us actually got wet. It was really scary for us bigger people to do, Robb was hilarious:

 

"Robb, the tracks bending behind of you"

"Please don't tell me that!"

"Ok, now it's bending in front of you"

OMFG, I just literally BURST out laughing at that for a good two minutes!!

 

LOL at the whole accent discussion. I'm sad that Jow was able to understand me, and that he didn't sound more Southern. I kinda figured our night in Dusseldorf would be entertaining if neither of us could understand a word the other was saying.

 

Klotten was fun. Shame it isn't bigger, but I'd rather have a small park where everything is fun than a big park with lots of filler rides.

 

I never did find out why you guys were calling them "Sea pigs"... what did I miss?!

 

Oh, and Dave, I think cheating slowed down your momentum. Honesty always pays.

OMFG. I'm laughing so hard right now! I needed that. The depression of the best vacation ever being over has really settled in today.

 

The mini updates have certainly helped! Good times, good times.
