Barcelona Part 2


Our second day in Barcelona we got up and walked up Montjuic to see the views of the city. It was another big walking day. We walked along the water to get there, then through town on the way back in the afternoon. I don't know why but when we travel we usually don't use the public transportation much. In Barcelona we only used it to get to and from the airport and walked all over the city instead. Which leads to a ton of walking. I guess that is good since we had so much food for lunches.










Outside Hotel Miramar - the first stop on the way to the top









And the top - Castell de Montjuic



For those who don't want to walk you can take the cable cars up and down



The building in the background is the museum of national art of Catalan. Didn't get a good photo on the way to lunch because we were hungry, but we went back by it another day.


After lunch we hung out for a bit in the Parc de l'Espanya Industrial which was really nice to just sit and relax in.



There were all these guard towers which were empty


And someone having a photo shoot


And a dragon slide!

Casa Milà - first if many Gaudi buildings







Casa Batllo and Casa Amatller - I really loved these buildings. So much fun





Casa Lleó i Morera













Most places in Barcelona are pretty nice, but then there was this empty field on the way to the beach. It was kind of out of place for the rest of the city.


And back to the beach after a long day of walking

We are off!!

So Phillip and Dana were gracious enough to take us to the border on Friday afternoon and we started hiking! It has been amazing and fun and we have been meeting a lot of very nice people all over the place. On the second day we had this awful hike up a canyon that was just soooo hot and bleh and when we got to the top we met some people out day hiking who gave us ice water! It was amazing!! Anyways we cannot upload the audio or photos at the library here in Julian, so hopefully in Warner Springs we can get them up. The first days were really hot, but yesterday was freezing! We were very glad we had all of our gear with us as in the morning it was soooo cold and windy we had our hats and gloves and jackets and long underwear on. It was crazy how windy it was....literally blowing me over on the trail. I was glad I had my hiking poles as without them I am sure I would have fallen numerous times just due to the wind. We have been hiking pretty far the last 2 days, 15-16 miles each da

Railay Beach, Thailand - Day 1

  Getting to Railay Beach from Bangkok kind of takes forever. We had taken the overnight train from Bangkok to Surat Thai where we had to switch to a bus to take us to Krabi. I slept much better on the train that night. I had put in my earplugs and only woke up a few times. It was great. I woke up around 6 and was ready to go. Raymond was just like you are so wakey! I was just like yeah - I actually slept! So I was all refreshed and ready to go.    We had picked up some banana muffins in Bangkok for breakfast, as well as leftovers from our feast the night before, and the muffins were delicious! We should have gotten more of them than we did. So we got to Surat Thani and had to switch to a bus like I said. It was a bit confusing where we should go and what was going on, but we got on the bus and it took us into Surat Thani Town. That bus was really nice so I thought the trip to Krabi would be great. Only we had to wait a bit and switch buses and the new bus, the one that took us

Roller Derby World Cup, Manchester 2018

Last year was the roller derby world cup in Manchester! I love roller derby world cup! I love watching all the teams from all over the world and seeing how they have improved and oh it is so much fun!! Last year there were 38 teams! It was awesome. We got into Manchester at lunchtime and had a crazy big lunch at Mod's Vegan Cafe at the Thirsty Scholar which was delicious! Vegan English breakfast, a burger with fries and onion rings It was rainy so we didn't wander around much, but I made Raymond go out in the afternoon to check out The John Rylands Library which was super cool. And so many super old books! It is really the only sightseeing we did while in Manchester as we had so much derby to watch! Dinner at V Rev - soup, mac and cheese, and fired seitan plate - delicious! Waiting to get into roller derby - the line was sooooooo long! I should have printed off our tickets, but I forgot. It took over an hour to
