The Maldives Day 11: Kuramathi Island Resort - Fun beach finds and sunset on the sandbank

Are you guys getting tired of all the photos of the same place? Well it is almost over! Just two more posts to go. 



Big shark!



Fruit bats eating the fruit!

We really just swam all day! Raymond went snorkeling again in the morning and I was in the pool almost the entire day - just out for lunch and to get more cold beverages!

Can anyone guess what this is?

When we were out on the sunset cruise the night prior we saw that you could walk forever out on the sandbank since it was low tide. So we headed out there for sunset and it was gorgeous!






You had to wade across some really shallow water at times, but you could walk out really far
















Looking back at the island from out on the sandbank

















The water is really shallow, but the tide was coming in. I was okay until Raymond stepped somewhere and almost stepped on a sand crabbie! He moved and buried himself again, but then I was worried I would step on them!
















On the way back to our room after sunset I took photos of lots of fun things I found on the beach









There were so many hermit crabbie!


















The hermit crabbies would always hide when you got close










I don't know what this hermit crabbie was doing - making a hole for himself?


Tiny sand crabbie! They move so fast they look like fuzzies blowing across the sand



Back at the room - so gorgeous here!

We went back to the Indian restaurant again for dinner - another veggie ball

We had Harabara Kabab - veggie patties

And Vegetable Samoosa - both were delicious! Normally I am just so so on samosas. They are good, but not my favorite. These ones were delicious!!

And we tried the Dum Aloo Kashmir - potatoes with dried fruit

And Rajma Masala - kidney bean curry! I like kidney beans more than chickpeas so I loved this

And more of the Kulcha as it is so tasty

And we tried the Puri - deep fried bread puffs. Everything was super tasty!! We definitely need to plan a trip to Indian just for the foods! We were so stuffed again, but totally worth it! 

Afterwards we spied on the live bands at the bar near here, but they were just so so. So we spied on the band at the bar near our place which I enjoyed a lot more, but it was really muggy out so we went back to our room for a quick dip in the pool to cool off. Only one more day left...

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
