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 in

And kitties!

This was my favorite temple we went to. I loved how it was just white with blue accents. Really beautiful. I liked it much more than the really ornate ones. And instead of Buddha statues statues these gold balls. Not sure what they were as I couldn't read the sign.

All the streetlights downtown looked like this. There was supposed to be an art museum next to the temple, but we searched for it and it didn't look like it was open anymore. By that time I was getting way too hot so we went back to the room to cool off and relax until checkout. 


Oh and eat some treats we got at the breakfast place. This was a rice flour thing filled with sugar and sesame seeds and super tasty, though Raymond thought it was weird. 


And some sugary crunchy toasts

Some peanut brittle-ish stuff, though not sweet

And some green rice flour things which didn't have a lot of flavor. They were just squishy. 

Checkout was noon so we left our bags there and went to explore along the waterfront again. 

It is hard to tell, but you can see a few dots of light in the photo above and if you look closely (or click on the photo to enlarge it) you can see these skinny translucent fish. They were all along the shore. 

A tiny sandy area with lots more sand crabbies! The walkway was a ways above so we just stood by the railing and watched them all make their little sand balls for a while.There were so many of them. 

We wandered until I was overheating again and then went to cool off with some smoothies! Mixed berry for Raymond and watermelon for me (which btw the watermelon stayed frozen forever which is perfect when it is hot outside). 

Hogwarts Hostel - we saw a sign on the road, but I couldn't tell if it was a Harry Potter thing or not. Apparently it is! Though that Ron cut out is odd as it has that large white area where you put your head so it doesn't really look right...

 
Then back to the same place we had breakfast for some lunch before we headed out. So much food and so tasty! This was actually the last day of the vegetarian festival so the last of the tasty festival foods. Even though I wasn't the biggest fan of Thailand I would definitely go back for the festival again and eat all the foods! Yum!
After lunch we headed off to Phuket, but that will be a post for another day.

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
