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.

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
