Malmo & Copenhagen 2016

Back in March we headed up to Malmo again for a roller derby tournament. We had gone last year for the same tournament and one of the biggest draws? Pizza salad! Yes, Raymond also thinks I am ridiculous to be so excited about pizza salad. I didn't take that many photos in Malmo as we were mostly just at the tournament, but we did spend a day in Copenhagen before coming home. This time we didn't use the public transportation in Malmo and decided to just walk instead. Everything is fairly close and it is much easier. Above is our lunch from Pizzeria Rex - A taco pizza and a gyro pizza with the aforementioned pizza salad! So tasty


We were going to get burgers for dinner, but the burger place was packed as they were running a special for roller derby people. So we headed to a nearby Indian place instead and had some tasty Indian foods.


The second day it snowed! Just a little bit, but I loved it! This is the view from our room


And another.




We went back to the burger place - The Vegan Bar - for lunch as we figured it might not be as crowded (and we were right). They had a special burger with onion rings and lots of delicious things on it. So good.


Walking back to roller derby after lunch




Another grey day in Malmo. If you look at my photos from last year they are the same.


Roller derby!


After the weekend of roller derby it was off to Copenhagen for the day before our flight. We wanted to get there early enough to take the free tour so we were up and about and ready to go.


I totally didn't bring the right clothes for walking around in the cold. I was freezing!! I didn't bring my winter coat because...well I blamed it on just being in CA where it was warm. So I was all messed up. But yeah next time I need to be prepared! Now here are some photos from our tour around Copenhagen.

After the tour it was time for lunch and hot beverages to get warm. We went to Kalaset and had burgers - chickpea patties with tahini mint dressing, coleslaw, grilled zucchini and peppers, and chili jam. Served with roasted potatoes. These were amazing. Definitely goes on the list for when we are in Copenhagen again.


We also had a slice of chocolate cake. Yum!

After lunch we just wandered around - and found the Lego store!























Then it was off to the airport for our flight home. We got there early and looked to see if we could find some dinner. We had falafel salad which was alright. A bit dry, but it was one of the only vegan options and it was fine enough. So there you have our weekend in Malmo/Copenhagen

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
