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.

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

The First Two Weeks

From In Berlin Hello! So I have been here just over 2 weeks now which is a bit crazy and things are finally coming together. I really like our apartment. Lots of room and it is very quiet as we are a block off the main road. We finally got some furniture last week so the place is not as empty and we actually have chairs to sit on and a bed to sleep in (that is not the noisy air mattress). I even have my craft table set up, but I am still looking for storage for my fabrics and such (the ones I wanted were out of stock). Yesterday I sewed up curtains for the front windows so we can have the privacy blinds (big metal blinds that come down and cover the front windows and are on most of the ground floor windows around town) up and Raymond won't freak out that people can see in.The bedroom/my craft room is pretty much done. The back of the house gets much better light during the day so I set up shop back there to take advantage of it. If I worked in the front rooms I would need the

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 insta
