Sassnitz 2014

Well I am doing pretty good at keep these posts about a year behind...Not exactly what I had planned, but hopefully I will catch up. So just over a year ago we went up to Sassnitz and Jasmund National Park for a long weekend. We had some vacation time to use up so we headed up to the coast since we hadn't yet. When looking for places to go explore along the Baltic coast I found the chalk cliffs of Jasmund National Park and that sounded fun so off we went! This will be a lot of photos of our walks along the cliffs and beaches.


First views of the pedestrian bride that goes from the docks to the town on the hill.


We arrived at lunchtime and it was sunny out so we ate sandwiches while waiting to check in


We wandered around town that afternoon.




The waterfront was very nice to walk along 



 
There were lots of old foundations and stuff

 
It was chilly,but sunny and beautiful


 
Then suddenly it was crazy foggy! It was clear one minute, then the next you couldn't see very far from the fog. It kept coming and going and was lots of fun to walk along the shore in. 














 
The start/end of the path back to town


 
There was a lighthouse way out in the water so after exploring the beach we headed out there. 

 
There is snow on the steps! And some patches along the walkway out there. 

 
Looking back to town


 
The next day we got up and went to explore the woods at the top of the cliffs. Sassnitz was a strange little town. Lots of run down buildings that were abandoned, then some nice buildings with businesses and restaurants. An odd combination and I know we were not there during peak tourist times but it felt really dead. 


 
It was overcast and cool, but a lovely walk in the woods. 




 
From above you can see the lighter patches in the water. 






 
There was an overlook where you could walk out on this little walkway and look down. Fun! The photo below is looking down from that point. 









 
The pedestrian bridge at night

 
The last day we got up and it was much clearer, but still chilly. We walked along the top of the cliffs again through the woods, but then went down and explored the beaches as well. 







 
There were a few places along the top of the cliff with stair access to the beach













 
And back to town

 
The lighthouse we walked out to the first night



And finally heading home in the evening. It was a gorgeous long weekend!

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
