Flam, Norway Day 2

Our second day in Flam was Norwegian National Day! It was not a cruise ship day so the town was dead. 




In the morning we decided to hike up to Brekkenfossen waterfall





























It was a nice walk up to the waterfall

There were two other people there when we got there and they offered to take our photo before they headed back down

It was beautiful from the top of the trail







As we sat we heard music playing and realized there was a small parade! We watched them walk from Flam to old town Flam. I know it is hard to hear as we are sitting by a waterfall, but you can hear the music if you listen closely. It was much clearer in person and kind of fun watching from above.

It was a nice hike, but I somehow messed my knee up doing it. It hurt going up and down inclines/stairs but was fine walking flat so that was a little issue the rest of the trip, but luckily not that bad. We still walked all over the place, just not up big hills and such. 



When we got back to town it was lunchtime. We tried one of the other places that had a veggie burger they could make vegan. Again nothing fancy, but nice to have an option in such a small town. 




After lunch we decided to walk up the road to Flam Church in the old center of town. 












Lots of flowers everywhere



Flam Church

There was a flood that destroyed a lot of the road and such so they were working on fixing it








We met a gumpy kitty on the way back to town who wanted all the love













Stylish people cross the road here




We just had pizza again for dinner because there weren't really other options. All in all a good day. Flam is beautiful especially when there are not lots of people around. Really peaceful.

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
