Dortmund, Germany Day 2


Our last day in Dortmund we had breakfast then walked down to Westfallen Park spying on things along the way

Press the lever down and make the water fountain go





You rotate the small wheels here to scoop rocks into the big wheel which which you then rotate so they fall into the funnel and once you have enough the rocks roll down turning the other wheels. I was playing with this when a group of 4 guys about our age came by and the one was like oh! You need some help! And started helping get the rocks loaded into the big wheel. It was fun!


Fancy merry go round







This is at the park. Now when I looked up about the park it cost money to go in, but the only thing I could find out about it was there was a tower you could go up and see out across the area. It sounded like there wasn't much else, but like the museum the day before this was so much fun!!

There were these cars that you could take to the other side of the park - so of course we did that

















Then we wandered around until we had to leave


Lots of interactive areas




This spun and made you dizzy





climb into the bushes










View from the top of the tower

























Flamingos!































Riding the cars back to the entrance











Raymond was in charge of the camera on the way back





Lunch at Kartoffel Lord Vegetarian Kuche - we got the Arabic - spicy soy wrap which was really good. 

Then to the train for the trip home. Dortmund was a lot of fun and I would definitely go back! I would say that this was one of my most fun weekend ever! For a town that was supposed to be boring I had a fantastic time!

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Ferry home - Tórshavn

The boat home was just as smooth and uneventful as the ride to Iceland. We left Iceland at 8pm Wed, Thurs at 3pm we arrive in Tórshavn and had a few hours to wander around, then back to the boat for the night, Friday was at sea, and Saturday we arrived in Hirtshals at 11am. 

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Final Thoughts

That is it for our Iceland adventures! I wanted to post one last wrap up just to say a few things I didn't put elsewhere, or organize my overall thoughts in one place. 

The end

So it started raining on us for days and we cut out to come back to Seattle for a few days and wait for it to clear up.....and then Raymond decided he really did not want to go back out. So I at first was pretty upset cause I really wanted to get to Canada, or at least as far as we could while the weather was still nice this weekend. And I was feeling really like we were giving up for no reason. Like if one of us were injured or if I was hating it or something then I would have been better about it. But instead it was like the forecast called for gorgeous weather this weekend and we were just going to sit at home. I figured we could have at least gotten to the next stop and then only had one more chunk to do next year, but Raymond really didn't want to go back out so we decided not to. But hopefully by this time next year we will get the last 2 sections done, and maybe go back and do the section from white pass to snoqualmie as we went RIGHT by Mt Rainier and it is supposed to be g
