The Maldives day 2 at The Adaaran Prestige Vadoo

Since we had flown overnight to get to the Maldives I had no idea how long we would sleep that first night. We were both exhausted and went to bed early, then day 2 started off with a bit of a frantic getting ready so we didn't miss breakfast. I woke up and looked at the clock and it was 9:30 - and breakfast was only served until 10! So I told Raymond we have to go if we want food!

We had ordered Indian breakfast the night before. It was so so delicious! Dal, an eggplant/squash/carrot dish, and roti. It was a lot of food, but we loved it!

The decorations outside the restaurant. All made from Styrofoam. After breakfast we went to lounge on the beach for a bit


Triggerfish warning!

Relaxing on the beach. We found some lounge chairs under an umbrella so we could sit, drink out mocktails, read, and swim whenever we wanted




Lizard friend in the garden







I did get in the water for a little bit!








Raymond went snorkeling and took some photos of the fishes he saw!



















Lunch was a veggie shawarma with fries

And veggie couscous

Raymond was ready for food after all the snorkeling

After lunch it was back to the beach and the pool for swimming until the sun started getting us. Then back to our room to hang out in our plunge pool for a bit

We did go down for the fish feeding and there was a couple standing next to us. The lady said "You said you wanted to see a shark well there is one" to which he replied, in a very snotty voice, " Yeah but I wanted to see a big shark and that is a small on." They were having a good time...


Stingray came back - it was harder to see the fish from the dock with the glare. Much better from the bar from above



And back to our pool for sunset





Sometimes I can't decide what photos to keep and which ones to take out so I just leave them all in...











For the second day in a row you could watch the sun go behind the horizon, though I think these first two days were the only ones. Every other day it went behind some clouds low on the horizon, but was still gorgeous!

Dinner was eggplant soup - delicious!! I think they used a lot of cashew creams in the vegetarian things. So so good. 

And mushroom ravioli

With fruit for dessert for me

And chocolate mousse for Raymond. It was all so delicious!

We did have a jacuzzi in our room so we decided to try it out after dinner...only it took forever to fill up so by the time it was ready I was so sleepy! I didn't stay in long much to Raymond's dismay. It was a lovely day of relaxing, reading and swimming. The island is not very big, but it was so nice to be in such a beautiful place and not have anything to do!

Stupid Libraries.

So I only have six minutes left and just wasted a few seconds letting you know, but I need some assistance in getting things off our iPod onto the net. In the last town we were in, I came so close to getting it up only to be thwarted by the only damn cd -burner in the shop being broken. This is the problem: my iPod is mac formatted - the folks at Apple thought it would be hilarious to not include some sort of compatibility between windows and mac versions of iTunes to read the voice memos you record from any computer. If your iPod formatted on a mac (I believe it's HSF +), windows iTunes will tell you to reformat the buggar . And get this, the iPod records voice memos in old school PC style wav files. What the hell. Anyway, I can't test or install things on this library computer, but if someone checking the blog who is tech savvy could find a program to retrieve data from a mac formatted iPod from a windows machine - a program that doesn't use a god damn install

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. 

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
