  • Andorra
  • Aruba

Please, if you’re from overseas I’d love to hear from you (and to be completely honest if you’re local as well!), just leave a comment saying where you’re from because the technology certainly isn’t perfect and it’s quite possible some places have been missed 🙂

For those of you who had been hoping to see a post about Disneyland’s ride ‘It’s a small world’ see here and, if you can stomach it, here!
