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!

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!

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
