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!

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Final Thoughts

That is it for our Iceland adventures! I wanted to post one last wrap up just to say a few things I didn't put elsewhere, or organize my overall thoughts in one place. 

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Ferry home - Tórshavn

The boat home was just as smooth and uneventful as the ride to Iceland. We left Iceland at 8pm Wed, Thurs at 3pm we arrive in Tórshavn and had a few hours to wander around, then back to the boat for the night, Friday was at sea, and Saturday we arrived in Hirtshals at 11am. 

Krabi Town, Thailand - Day 2

Our second day in Krabi town was just a half day. We had until 2pm to hang out and explore before we headed off to Phuket. We got up early and went in search of breakfast hopeful that some of the places that were closed the night prior would be open - and luckily they were! Well a lot were still closed, but the best looking place was open so it was perfect. Raymond's plate of food   And mine - only $1.25! Such a steal and super delicious. We both had rice noodles and yakisoba and ham log, and Raymond got some greens and I tried a curry looking thing with lots of weird vegetables I had never had before. It was pretty tasty, but it was a fish curry with mock fish in it and well I have never been a seafood fan so probably not my best choice. I just went by what things looked like since I don't read Thai.  After lunch we went to explore Wat Kaew Korawaram up on the hill.  There was this abandoned park along the stairway up to the temple with wild animal statues
