Den Haag, Netherlands Part 2 - Giving the beach another try and more wandering

The morning after our disaster of a trip to the beach I said okay, why don't we give this beach thing another try since it is early and not too hot yet. It was MUCH better than the day prior








Giant hotel on the beach

Signs so you know where your stuff it




We still didn't stay that long at the beach as it was just okay


Statues outside the theatre






Can't tell me what to do!



Art downtown





A urinal in the middle of the park - perfect...

Old Ministry of Justice




Mauritshuis Museum






The Knights' Hall

Fountain in Binnenhof





Water by the government buildings

Prison gate museum

Fancy vegan treats at More Pastry

Taking a break outside More

With a brownie

And a berry tart - delicious!



Noordeinde Palace



Modrian is everywhere!


Taking a break in the Palace Gardens

With fun art



Lunch at Quinta Verde, which I just looked up and they are now closed permanently :( This was super tasty!



Our hotel on the left





Waiting for our dinner foods at Vegetarian Snackbar

Milkshake

Snack plate - 3 croquettes, 3 nuggets, 2 falafel, 2 kibbuhling


And a burger with salad and fries - so tasty! We tried to get back here to try more things, but alas we did not have enough time

Can't tell Raymond what to do either!

After dinner we headed down to the Peace Palace



This was really cool - it was a peace thing and each country of the world is represented by a different stone around the edge




They had a sign with labels for the countries so you could see what they were. I've never seen anything like that before



Sun setting at the palace












Sunset over the park across from our hotel. All in all a much better day than the day prior!

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
