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 Bavaria: Eibsee & Bremsee & Fungi

The next day we woke up and it was quite cloudy, but we still headed off to hike around Eibsee. 

Colmar, France Part 2 - All the museums!

So when we were wandering around Colmar and spying on all the things we saw a sign that we happened to be in Colmar on a free night at the museum! So most of the museums in town were free from 7pm-11pm/midnight (depending on the museum). So we of course had to go check them out! There were only four in town so we were able to go to all of them, though by the end we were so tired and our feet were so sore from a long day of exploring and long night of museums.  First up was the Museum Bartholdi, but I didn't take any photos in there (I wasn't sure I was allowed and it was super busy, so many people!). It was super tiny, but interesting. There were a lot of models of ideas he had for different monuments and then what he actually ended up using. The one room was just ideas and designs for the Statue of Liberty which was cool. There wasn't a lot there, but what there was I enjoyed.  Then it was over to the Natural History and Ethnology Museum Cool bugs

San Francisco Part 1

  Oh San Francisco. What a wonderful time I had there. It was absolutely beautiful the entire time. Sunny, warm, gorgeous. Plus getting to spend a few days with Jacalen and Patricia = So much fun! We definitely need to do more girls trips! This will be a mostly picture post   I arrived late afternoon and the bus dropped me off near Fishermans Wharf and I walked over to where we were staying. Oh, it was gorgeous outside, but with my bags and such I was a bit warm. Not expecting that in February! Patricia arrived a bit after I did and we had the evening to ourselves to do whatever we wanted! It was so nice out and we were staying in the Marina District so it was just a short walk down to the water. Beautiful!   After wandering along the waterfront for a bit it was time for some dinner! We happened to find the Plant Cafe and I got a plant burger with fries and a salad. Really tasty! Afterwards we went to get a drink and noticed the bar had trivia on Tue
