Seattle/Vancouver 2017

In fall 2017 Raymond and our friend Anthony were planning a work trip to Seattle and Vancouver and his wife, Mia, and I decided to tag along. 

I was up soooooo early that first morning! And starving as we didn't really eat dinner since we had a huge lunch and I wasn't hungry. Only nothing was open nearby....so we waited until The Crumpet Shop opened at 7 to go get some food. I did have a few snacks that helped hold me over until then. 

Wandering by the market a bit


Trying on stuff at Target

While Anthony and Raymond were at work Mia and I wandered - our first solo day was gorgeous!

But the clouds were coming

Noodles from a place in the market!

Aaron's special from Glo's Cafe


All the Pho! Really we didn't do a lot in Seattle besides shop, eat, and meet up with friends

That weekend we headed up to Vancouver for a week! On Sunday we went to Lynn Canyon for some naturey fun. We were going to go to Capilano suspension bridge, but it cost way too much for us and Lynn Canyon was free!

Always good advice






All the photos on the bridge!



Apparently a lot of people cliff jump here even with all of the signs and fence...there was a big sign at the beginning of the trail with a map that had listed how many people died and were seriously injured cliff jumping. 








It started raining so we headed back to the city

And spied on Kitsilano Park






While the guys were working we watched the seaplanes land on the water


All the soup!


Our last day we headed to Stanley Park for the sunset









We had to leave early Sat morning to get Anthony and Mia to the airport in Seattle for their flight home Sat evening. We were flying back to PA and those flights were in the morning, so we stayed the night with Gillian and flew out the next day. And we got to go to all the Halloween parties! Since we were traveling we didn't have a lot of time to find a costume, so animal onesies it was! They were so comfy and warm and I love Raymond in his lion onesie! Gillian was a peacock so we all fit the same theme too! Win! Next time our fun adventures in PA!

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
