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!








The decor next to the restaurant


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!

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
