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

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. 

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. 

The end

So it started raining on us for days and we cut out to come back to Seattle for a few days and wait for it to clear up.....and then Raymond decided he really did not want to go back out. So I at first was pretty upset cause I really wanted to get to Canada, or at least as far as we could while the weather was still nice this weekend. And I was feeling really like we were giving up for no reason. Like if one of us were injured or if I was hating it or something then I would have been better about it. But instead it was like the forecast called for gorgeous weather this weekend and we were just going to sit at home. I figured we could have at least gotten to the next stop and then only had one more chunk to do next year, but Raymond really didn't want to go back out so we decided not to. But hopefully by this time next year we will get the last 2 sections done, and maybe go back and do the section from white pass to snoqualmie as we went RIGHT by Mt Rainier and it is supposed to be g
