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.

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
