  1. A reality show not yet. 🙂 Is there talk of one? Is Danny performing in Europe? How exciting. Is it his first time? Too many questions.. 🙊

  2. Not performing. He says music meetings. I’d imagine he could perform for label heads there, but who knows.

    I’m loving these opportunities for Danny <3

  3. I read it’s Danny’s first trip to Berlin, Germany and London. My great-grandmother was from Germany. I would love to visit the country one day. Maybe Danny will send photos. 😉 Hope he gets to enjoy the beauty of Europe on his trip.

    You were in England recently Jan. Right? Lucky you.

  4. Admin2, my passport looks pretty shiny, too…. my trip to England was last April! I finally got to use my passport! The cruises I went on don’t really require it, but I used it anyways…. 🙂

  5. RE privacy . . .

    I think the younger generation in general is more comfortable with (what I consider to be) oversharing on social media. In that sense, I don’t think that Danny and Leyicet are appreciably different than their peers. Even if you include celebrities in Danny’s peer group, he and Leyicet are probably still well within the norm.

    Personally, I’d like to see less of little Danny and Victoria. I don’t mind occasional photos, but the videos feel intrusive to me. I can’t imagine how those children will feel at 11, 12, 13, and 14 years of age, when they know and see that old videos of them as young children are out there circulating — (because nothing ever completely goes away on the Internet!) — and are or were viewed by complete strangers. That certainly would bother me, in their shoes. But again, there is just less privacy in general anymore, so they might not mind. They may well embrace sharing on social media.

    The problem I have is that the children are young now and don’t get to choose their level of exposure. I much prefer how other celebrities like Carrie Underwood are handling exposure of their children. Carrie, for example, posts an occasional photo or video, but it is done in a way to minimize the intrusion into her son Isaiah’s privacy.

  6. Re jet lag . . .

    The times I’ve traveled overseas (England and Syria), I’ve just gone with the flow of whatever is going on local-time, and I had no problem with jet lag on the front end of the trip.

    When I went to England, I was traveling from the East Coast. We left at night, I slept on the plane, and arrived in the morning. (I can’t speak towards the quality or length of sleep on the plane, though.) Once in London, we just kept going. I could tell my companion was flagging and definitely experiencing jet lag. I don’t remember now, but she might have taken a nap for an hour or two. I was fine, however. Now, coming back to the United States was a different story for me. I was so tired when I got back! Definitely jet lagged!

    Syria was a different matter. We left from the Midwest, but got delayed at the very first airport because of weather, thus missing our connecting flight to Paris. By the time we arrived at airport #2, we had to stay overnight and fly out the next day, first to Paris, then to Damascus. It was evening by time we reached Damascus, so after briefly socializing with our hosts, we all went to bed and started fresh the next day. No jet lag. When I returned from Syria, I was tired, but not seriously jet lagged. I stayed up and went to bed at the local time, a few hours earlier than I normally would, and I slept a few hours later, too. But otherwise I was fine.

    So I’ve never had a real problem with jet lag, especially on the front end of a trip, but everybody is different. Hopefully, Danny looked into things ahead of time and did whatever he could to minimize jet lag.

  7. Sorry, Jan. Wasn’t paying attention to what I was doing. I copy and pasted my comments into the new thread.
