The Maldives Day 10: Kuramathi Island Resort & Sunset Cruise

Day 10 in the Maldives started with what else? Breakfast and then Shark Patrol! There were always lots of fishes off our swimming pool in the  morning since it was high tide

And lots of baby sharkies!!


I was trying to get a photo of me and baby sharkie...

A bigger one swam by as well!


And this guy swam by which I believe is a puffer fish!

So many sharkies swam by! It was a busy morning at Shark Patrol, but Raymond was a great Shark Patrol buddy!






After a while Raymond went snorkeling again in a different channel while I kept up the patrol





He is out there by the pole









All the photos of the sharkies! There were at least 3 baby ones, a larger one, and a pretty big one that swam by. One time two baby sharkies swam by at the same time!!

They had lots of special events going on every day for the holidays. Today was leaf crafts and napkin folding. It sounded kind of lame, but it was at the same time as high tea so we figured why not check it out when we got tea? It was only us and a lady with her daughter and was so much fun!! Seriously I loved it. The people working there that were teaching everything were super friendly and a lot of fun. Everyone else was missing out! I made some palm leaf crafts first

Then moved on to super fun napkins!! I took photos of all the steps so I could remember how to make them. One of my favorites is this napkin man!


And a turtle! So cute!

My fish and bird made out of palm leaves

Then time for tea. 

In the evening we had a sunset cruise! Went out on the boat to watch the sunset. I was a little worried I might get motion sick since it was crazy windy that day, but luckily I did not. 






Our place was the fifth from the left!












My hair was everywhere!










And it again went behind some low clouds



Once the sun set they gave us champagne! or juice for me
















Heading back to the dock

We went to the Thai place for dinner again and our waitress wasn't there! Sad. We had the pad thai again

Green curry which was really tasty

And we each had an order of the broccoli as I didn't want to share! It was too tasty!

For dessert we had an order of fried bananas and an order of fried pineapple. The bananas were delicious, but I didn't care for the batter with the pineapple. It was tasty without it though. A great end to another great 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
