Campervan Adventures in Bavaria: Malerwinkler Trail

Day 3 of our trip was forecast to be rainy and overcast so we had a nice, relaxing morning (though this was our normal breakfast - fruit, toast, and muesli/cereal with tea). 

Then we headed to the waterfront to hike the Malerwinkler trail - an easy trail to more viewpoints of the lake. As you can see it was overcast, but I like the spooky clouds. 

I enjoyed this bad translation - oh no! Danger of life ahead!  This is where you were supposed to be able to hike out to the bottom of a waterfall. 

The trail went right along the edge of the lake

But there to the left of us, in the water, is the "trail." There was not a good way to go through without walking in the water (it was just a steep cliff otherwise) so we had to turn back. 

And another stop to say hi to the goats on the way back to the van (the trail went by here again). This was one of our few relaxing days where we had a morning hike then were done by lunchtime and read all afternoon. Once we got here we were looking for a nice spot to sit and have our lunch, maybe by the river by the campsite somewhere, but then it just started raining pretty hard so we had lunch in the van. And as I said read all afternoon. After the first 2 days, both longer than expected, it was nice to have a bit of a rest day though my Fitbit still tracked 13km/8 miles.

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
