Easter in Rostock 2018

We decided to go up to the coast for Easter last year and went somewhere new - Rostock. You have to go out to Warnemunde to get to the actual coast, but I couldn't find any places available that overlooked the water so we stayed in the city instead. And it snowed! Wandering around a wet, snowy Rostock We did take the train to Warnemunde one day and it was gorgeous, but super cold! While wandering in Rostock we saw there would be a choir concert at St Marien church so we decided to check it out. It was the St John Passion by Heinrich Sch├╝tz and...was just okay. Really a few of the singers were not very good so...plus it was freezing in the church. No heat or anything, it was cold outside so those stone walls and suff just made it so so cold.  We went out to the coast one day to do some wandering in the woods Wetlands Pretty tree bark

Roller Derby World Cup, Manchester 2018

Last year was the roller derby world cup in Manchester! I love roller derby world cup!

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
