Stralsund, Germany Part 2 - Fishes!

Stralsund is a small town, but it has a ton of fish to spy on! Our second day there we went to the Ozeaneum, a big aquarium on the water. Lots of fishy photos ahead!






















We got to this big tank while they were giving a talk about the fishes in it. Fun!



Raymond is suspicious of the penguins


You can see the seats in the middle of the photo here - this was a large room and the photo is taken from the top floor

We sat down in the seats for a moment and a recorded presentation started talking about the whales and such



It was kind of fun lounging in the big room looking at the giant whales

Lunch at Schnittchenfabrik - bread with fancy spreads. There is pepper hummus, Tandoori squash, and a Pea Cashew Ginger one.  

They were tasty, but pricey for the amount of food you got. 

We relaxed in our room the rest of the afternoon since it was cold and stormy outside, then got dinner at Restaurant Christas since it was closeby. First up - beet soup

Vegan veggie soup with wurst

Zucchini veggie noodles with thyme polenta - delicious!

The next day we went to the Meeresmuseum - another, smaller aquarium and the one I enjoyed more. The Ozeaneum was alright, but the Meeresmuseum had more things I like. Like rocks and fossils!


First you learn about the fishes

Then you spy on them! These were the tropical fishes and we saw some of them in the Maldives


I love rays!! I could sit and watch them swim around for hours!






It said this was the largest Ammonite fossil!





I see a few things I could add to my collection!


Learning all the things

An exhibit of deep sea creatures - they are crazy looking!



It is like Ursula's poor unfortunate souls

This guy was really cool and when you leaned in closer he started changing colors. I have a video of it, but I cannot figure out how to get it off of my phone and onto my computer to upload it...If you follow Raymond on Instagram then he posted it there back when we were here

Why hello there

The eels were wiggling all over the place











Shark!

These turtles were in an open air place. You could easily touch them if you were so inclined, though you weren't supposed to




Fishes try to hide, but I see them!













They had a large tank with sea turtles!

And sharks!




They were so big. I think this was the first time I have seen them in real life. At least the first time I remember seeing them


Nautilus are so silly when they swim






You can sit and watch the turtles from the top of the tank as well. See Meeresmuseum has so many pretty fishes and fun things to watch. It's smaller but way better than the Ozeaneum!

Then off to lunch at Klabautermann - vegan schnitzel and salad. Yum!





After lunch we walked down the pier



Lots of people fishing off the pier


And wandered over to the lake by the train station




Last day we wandered around a bit


Walked down the beach playing Pokemon









And then stopped for some ice cream before heading home. All in all a great long weekend on the coast.

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
