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.

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

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
