Christmas in Lanzarote 2017 - Part 4

The day Raymond's parents left started off very overcast



We decided to take the ferry over to Fuerteventura to spy 

There was a little section you could sit in and see underwater

But once we were going you couldn't really see anything :( 

So we went back to the deck for the ride





It was a bit choppy going over, but not too bad. It didn't make me super sick or anything





Dock at Corralejo

We wandered along the water all morning









And found lots of tide pools to spy on! And watch the fishes!





Underwater picture of fishes! Yes, I put my hand in the water to take the photo!!


















Then we went to a vegan restaurant, Baobob, for lunch before our boat back to Playa Blanca






Soup, salad, veggie balls, and vegan cheese! It was delicious!



The ferry ran at 13:30 and then not again until 17:30 so we decided to catch the earlier one. I am so so so glad we did!





The water doesn't look much choppier than the morning, but it was! Oh, I got soooooo motion sick on the way back. Oh it was horrible, and the water just got choppier and windier and by the time the 17:30 ferry would have ran the water was just all white caps and yeah. That would have been even worse so I am so glad we caught the earlier ferry! 

Constant up and down at crazy angles! We started off sitting on the main deck in the very front which was okay, but it was so rough that there was a ton of water being splashed on us and we were getting soaked. 







Eventually it was too much outside so I tried standing inside on the main deck, but then you had to be off to one side and it was not good. 



We ended up on the top deck, which was slightly better, but not much. It was a half hour boat ride, but it felt like forever!

As our clothes dried you could see the salt that was left from the water!


Back to Playa Blanca!









We brought treats back for cafe und kuchen time!

Relaxing by the pool

One last sunset from around the hotel property














It was a great trip! Lots of relaxing by the pool, on our balcony, and it was beautiful!

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
