Amsterdam, Netherlands Part 2

Our second full day in Amsterdam started off with breakfast at Bagels & Beans again - this time the Dutch Weed Burger - Yum!


















Rijksmuseum










They were filming something here - everyone dressed in orange for the Netherlands and they were going crazy cheering when the cameras rolled. It was fun to watch










Flower Market




National Ballet & Opera house

They had a free lunchtime concert the day we were there so we went to check it out. We arrived about a half hour early which was good becase there was already a huge line waiting to get in. 

You couldn't take photos during the performance, but it was a lot of fun. It was a chorus and they sang some silly songs and I really enjoyed it

Such a grey day



Lunch at Katkil & Tijger - this was not the most veggie friendly place. Nothing was listed that we could eat, but online it said there were options...really for lunch they have bowls where you pick a few things and that is what you get. It was all veggies and good, but nothing crazy fun





More snacks from Vegabond - cinnamon sugar doughnut

And Oreo Cupcake

With an Oreo inside!




That afternoon we took a boat tour wth Those Dam Boat Guys. Now their website made it seem like they were fun and there would be jokes and everything like that....but this tour was sooooo boring! Like it was nice being in a boat, but our tour guide put me to sleep. Seriously. He talked soooo quietly and monotone and was just like lulling me to sleep. I didn't really learn anything and if we hadn't have done the walking tour the day prior we wouldn't have gotten much of the history. It was very dissapionting. 





Bike parking at the train station















Dinner at Ko Chang - tofu satay

Pad See Eew

And Pad Thai - so tasty! We wanted to come back and get food for the train ride home, but unfortunately they are only open for dinner

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Final Thoughts

That is it for our Iceland adventures! I wanted to post one last wrap up just to say a few things I didn't put elsewhere, or organize my overall thoughts in one place. 

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
