Hello from Berlin!


This blog started as a way to detail all of our adventures in life starting with hiking the PCT in 2008. I haven't kept up with it and I didn't write about any of our smaller adventures we have had since then. However after plotting and planning for almost 2 years we have moved to Berlin so I think this is a great time to write about this newest adventure! Not sure how often I will update it but whenever I have something to say :)

So why and how did we end up here? Well we visited Europe in 2010 just for fun and to see if we could find a city we might want to move to. We both instantly loved Berlin. We were here in late Sept mid week and just had an amazing time and it just felt like home. We were walking around and it felt like a weekend day - we were just our and about eating, lounging in the park, etc. Once we got back we saved like crazy since we thought we would have to go back to school (school is free but you have to prove you can live for a year without working so that is just a little bit). We both started applying for jobs all over Germany at the beginning of the year with the goal of moving by the end of June. Everything worked out perfectly! Raymond got a job doing programming which he loves and he makes enough for us to live off of. He really likes his work and his coworkers and is really enjoying it here. He came over the beginning of June, but I had already committed to my job in Seattle through the end of June so I stayed behind and packed up/got rid of everything. After a quick stop in PA to visit the family I am now in Berlin! It has been just over a week since I arrived and we are loving it! Berlin is such a great city with so much going on all the time. Now time to go look at some furniture for our empty apt!

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
