Munich, Germany with Patricia!

Last fall Patricia was over in Europe visiting family and we met up in Munich for a few days. It was the first time I was in Munich and not sick! So win for me. Plus I got to see Patricia! Double win!

We took the train down after class on a Thursday and got there in time for dinner after meet up. We went to the Royal Kababhaus for dinner of vegan doner! 

The next day we had some breakfast then off to our day trip - Royal Castles of Neuschwanstein und Linderhof

The bus ride was beautiful and our first stop - Linderhof. They gave you your tickets with a time to be there by and let you wander your way to the palace. There wasn't a lot of time, but enough to see everything

We couldn't take photos inside, but it was interesting. Very ornate, lots of gold and porcelain

Then it was off to Oberammergau which has lots of fancy painted buildings

And lots of woodcarvers

we walked over to the church and spied inside

Then back on the bus to the final stop -Hohen Schwangau and Neuschwanstein

They once again gave us our tickets and options on how to get up to the palace and set us free. We grabbed some lunch quick then caught the shuttle up to Marienbrücke which is above the palace. 

Neuschwanstein from the bridge - beautiful!

There were a ton of people on the bridge when we got there so we were all seperated

Then I found Patricia, but Raymond was lost forever...or he went and waited for us out of the way

We started walking along this trail before realizing we were going the wrong way

It was really a beautiful area

The bridge from the palace

view from the palace. Again you couldn't take photos inside, but I loved this one. I am not a huge palace person, I don't like gold that much and the super ornate stuff is interesting, but not my style. This was my style. Very dark and awesome. I could live there

And the walk back down the hill to catch our bus back to Munich

It was a long day, but really enjoyable. I apparenlty didn't take photos of anything else while we were there. We did go on the free tour the next day which was fun, ate lots of delicious foods, and the last day, Sunday, we went to a bunch of museums. A lot of them are only 1 Euro on Sunday so we definitely took advantage of that. The Saturday we were there was the long night at the museums, but we were all so tired from walking all day we couldn't do more hours in museums. Maybe next time we will plan our trip to include that. 

Overall it was a great trip. It was nice to see Patricia again and explore the castles.

Stupid Libraries.

So I only have six minutes left and just wasted a few seconds letting you know, but I need some assistance in getting things off our iPod onto the net. In the last town we were in, I came so close to getting it up only to be thwarted by the only damn cd -burner in the shop being broken. This is the problem: my iPod is mac formatted - the folks at Apple thought it would be hilarious to not include some sort of compatibility between windows and mac versions of iTunes to read the voice memos you record from any computer. If your iPod formatted on a mac (I believe it's HSF +), windows iTunes will tell you to reformat the buggar . And get this, the iPod records voice memos in old school PC style wav files. What the hell. Anyway, I can't test or install things on this library computer, but if someone checking the blog who is tech savvy could find a program to retrieve data from a mac formatted iPod from a windows machine - a program that doesn't use a god damn install

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. 

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
