Barcelona Part 5


Since we had been doing so much walking all over Barcelona one of our last days there we decided to just have a beach day. Just lay on the beach, rest out feet, and only walk to get lunch and dinner. In the morning it was still a bit too chilly and overcast to swim, but by afternoon it was warm enough. So lots of beach photos in this post









After lunch all clear and sunny. We had been going to the beach every day at some point and there are tons of ladies walking around trying to give people massages and guys with drinks and blankets to sit on. When it is sunny and busy on the beach they are everywhere and kind of annoying as they come by every two seconds. So on our beach day we sat a little farther down the beach than we normally had been, closer to some buildings that were back by the road, and in the morning we had noticed that none of those people selling things came over as far as we were. It was like there was an invisible line they didn't cross. It was curious, but that afternoon we found out why. We were sitting just below the police station there on the beach, which we didn't realize, and one of the vendors did come over that far and the police came out and took him inside to talk to him. So note to anyone going to Barcelona - sit near the police office on the beach and don't get hassled by the people selling stuff.












Inside the hotdog place we had pre-dinner



We found this hidden basketball court where there were lots of kids hanging out to eat out hotdog - in el Raval







The streets are pretty quiet after dark through the center of town. Only one more day left in Barcelona.

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
