Kungsleden Day 2

After our first rainy day of hiking we woke up to a gorgeous sunny day. The second day was the best day we had as it was the only day we didn't have any rain (though the clouds did roll in in the evening). It was also incredibly gorgeous - the best scenery of the trip in my opinion. We woke up early and started hiking like we did while hiking the PCT.

The first thing we did that day was hike up above the tree line where we remained until the last day while hiking out. It was great as you could see everything around. We hiked through a valley all day and we kept going over a ridge and and it would open up and you could see more. It was like every time I thought man this is amazing! Then the next ridge - this is even better! And better and better. It was incredible. We also saw a lot of reindeer which was exciting. Now on to the photos!

Our second meditation spot. 

View of the lake we would walk along most of the day from the meditation spot. 

The pictures do not do it justice. This was absolutely beautiful. 

This was my favorite plant

View from the second cabin which was located at the top of a cliff. We walked through the valley seen here the next day.

The clouds were starting to come in, but the sun was still out before it went behind the ridge.

At our campsite hanging out. It was a little chilly. We realized that we walked way too far today if we don't want to just have a few days to just sit and do nothing at the end of the trip. The trail was super easy to hike so you can go far in not very much time. Starting the following day we lazed around in the morning and started hiking late, tried to take long breaks if we could when it wasn't raining, and stopped hiking well before dinner so we could try and stretch out the hike. If the trail had more access points we could have just continued hiking, but unfortunately there are only a few places that far north to get to and from the trail so we had to stick to the plan. So after this is was try and walk slow and waste time. Unfortunately the rest of the days were not very nice weather wise. We had some sun every day, but lots of rain as well which is not really conducive to taking long breaks.

Campervan Adventures in Bavaria: Eibsee & Bremsee & Fungi

The next day we woke up and it was quite cloudy, but we still headed off to hike around Eibsee. 

Colmar, France Part 2 - All the museums!

So when we were wandering around Colmar and spying on all the things we saw a sign that we happened to be in Colmar on a free night at the museum! So most of the museums in town were free from 7pm-11pm/midnight (depending on the museum). So we of course had to go check them out! There were only four in town so we were able to go to all of them, though by the end we were so tired and our feet were so sore from a long day of exploring and long night of museums.  First up was the Museum Bartholdi, but I didn't take any photos in there (I wasn't sure I was allowed and it was super busy, so many people!). It was super tiny, but interesting. There were a lot of models of ideas he had for different monuments and then what he actually ended up using. The one room was just ideas and designs for the Statue of Liberty which was cool. There wasn't a lot there, but what there was I enjoyed.  Then it was over to the Natural History and Ethnology Museum Cool bugs

San Francisco Part 1

  Oh San Francisco. What a wonderful time I had there. It was absolutely beautiful the entire time. Sunny, warm, gorgeous. Plus getting to spend a few days with Jacalen and Patricia = So much fun! We definitely need to do more girls trips! This will be a mostly picture post   I arrived late afternoon and the bus dropped me off near Fishermans Wharf and I walked over to where we were staying. Oh, it was gorgeous outside, but with my bags and such I was a bit warm. Not expecting that in February! Patricia arrived a bit after I did and we had the evening to ourselves to do whatever we wanted! It was so nice out and we were staying in the Marina District so it was just a short walk down to the water. Beautiful!   After wandering along the waterfront for a bit it was time for some dinner! We happened to find the Plant Cafe and I got a plant burger with fries and a salad. Really tasty! Afterwards we went to get a drink and noticed the bar had trivia on Tue
