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!

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
