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.

Campervan Adventures in Bavaria: Eibsee & Bremsee & Fungi

The next day we woke up and it was quite cloudy, but we still headed off to hike around Eibsee. 

Colmar, France Part 2 - All the museums!

So when we were wandering around Colmar and spying on all the things we saw a sign that we happened to be in Colmar on a free night at the museum! So most of the museums in town were free from 7pm-11pm/midnight (depending on the museum). So we of course had to go check them out! There were only four in town so we were able to go to all of them, though by the end we were so tired and our feet were so sore from a long day of exploring and long night of museums.  First up was the Museum Bartholdi, but I didn't take any photos in there (I wasn't sure I was allowed and it was super busy, so many people!). It was super tiny, but interesting. There were a lot of models of ideas he had for different monuments and then what he actually ended up using. The one room was just ideas and designs for the Statue of Liberty which was cool. There wasn't a lot there, but what there was I enjoyed.  Then it was over to the Natural History and Ethnology Museum Cool bugs

San Francisco Part 1

  Oh San Francisco. What a wonderful time I had there. It was absolutely beautiful the entire time. Sunny, warm, gorgeous. Plus getting to spend a few days with Jacalen and Patricia = So much fun! We definitely need to do more girls trips! This will be a mostly picture post   I arrived late afternoon and the bus dropped me off near Fishermans Wharf and I walked over to where we were staying. Oh, it was gorgeous outside, but with my bags and such I was a bit warm. Not expecting that in February! Patricia arrived a bit after I did and we had the evening to ourselves to do whatever we wanted! It was so nice out and we were staying in the Marina District so it was just a short walk down to the water. Beautiful!   After wandering along the waterfront for a bit it was time for some dinner! We happened to find the Plant Cafe and I got a plant burger with fries and a salad. Really tasty! Afterwards we went to get a drink and noticed the bar had trivia on Tue
