Slow going

So we are about 10 days behind schedule right now.....I was sick for a week at the Andersons and it has been slow going since then. And it is hot now so....I really cannot wait to be out of the desert. We do not make as many miles as we could because it is too hot, and then you need to carry more water, and then your pack is heavier so you go slower..... The last few days were not very fun for me as I was exhausted after trying to hike across the Mojave Desert at night when it was cooler. But that messed with my sleep schedule and now I just want to be out of the desert. There are a bunch of people who are skipping up to Kennedy Meadows, and the one guy who was at the Andersons at the same time we were is skipping up there today with them...and he was one of the I want to walk continuously up to Canada people. Crazy. I think other people are also getting tired of the desert, so it is good to know I am not the only one. I still love it, just not so much hiking through it with a heavy pack. So hopefully it is not too hot the next 11 or 12 days and we can get to Kennedy Meadows. Right now skipping ahead is pretty tempting but....that is cheating. I didn't get much sleep last night either so I am still sleepy today, but we are going to hike out a little later today and get a few miles in before dark (there is a long hot stretch ahead with no water. boo!!). So yeah, if anyone is sending anything to us note that we are behind the 'schedule' that I sent out before we left.

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Final Thoughts

That is it for our Iceland adventures! I wanted to post one last wrap up just to say a few things I didn't put elsewhere, or organize my overall thoughts in one place. 

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Ferry home - Tórshavn

The boat home was just as smooth and uneventful as the ride to Iceland. We left Iceland at 8pm Wed, Thurs at 3pm we arrive in Tórshavn and had a few hours to wander around, then back to the boat for the night, Friday was at sea, and Saturday we arrived in Hirtshals at 11am. 

Krabi Town, Thailand - Day 2

Our second day in Krabi town was just a half day. We had until 2pm to hang out and explore before we headed off to Phuket. We got up early and went in search of breakfast hopeful that some of the places that were closed the night prior would be open - and luckily they were! Well a lot were still closed, but the best looking place was open so it was perfect. Raymond's plate of food   And mine - only $1.25! Such a steal and super delicious. We both had rice noodles and yakisoba and ham log, and Raymond got some greens and I tried a curry looking thing with lots of weird vegetables I had never had before. It was pretty tasty, but it was a fish curry with mock fish in it and well I have never been a seafood fan so probably not my best choice. I just went by what things looked like since I don't read Thai.  After lunch we went to explore Wat Kaew Korawaram up on the hill.  There was this abandoned park along the stairway up to the temple with wild animal statues
