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 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
