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!

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
