Campervan Adventures in Bavaria: Sylvensteinsee & Oberes Isartal

The next day we left the area we were in, Lenggries, and headed off to our next stop, Tennsee. Of course we stoped to hike a bit along the way. First up - Sylensteinsee! We got there early and there were all these low clouds moving so quickly over the water! 

It was so much fun! But was also quickly dissipating so I was glad we got there at just the right time to see it!

Then we headed a bit farther down and parked to walk along the lake a way. It was another beautiful day!

We parked by this second bridge, the smaller of the bridges over the lake. 

We stopped on this rocky beach area for a break and there were 2 other people there doing some yoga. They were doing it soooo quickly it seemed like they were doing what they thought yoga was...but they were enjoying it so do your thing! Then they stripped down and got in the water! I cannot imagine as the water was so so so cold! Ice cubes! 

These last photos are views from the dam where we turned around and headed back towards the car. It was really nice

Stopping for some lunch by where we parked

After lunch we headed on towards Tennsee and drove through Oberes Isartal - a toll road which followed the river and was beautiful!

There wasn't a ton of hiking to be had along this stretch, but we did stop at all the parking spots and see if we could get down to the water and spy

And put our feet in! It was so cold I could only keep them in for a few seconds!

And finally our campsite! It was another one with a beautiful view! I love being able to sit and spy on the mountains!

This was an easier day because almost all of our walking was almost flat, but it was still a 17 km/10.5 mile hiking day!

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. 

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. 

The end

So it started raining on us for days and we cut out to come back to Seattle for a few days and wait for it to clear up.....and then Raymond decided he really did not want to go back out. So I at first was pretty upset cause I really wanted to get to Canada, or at least as far as we could while the weather was still nice this weekend. And I was feeling really like we were giving up for no reason. Like if one of us were injured or if I was hating it or something then I would have been better about it. But instead it was like the forecast called for gorgeous weather this weekend and we were just going to sit at home. I figured we could have at least gotten to the next stop and then only had one more chunk to do next year, but Raymond really didn't want to go back out so we decided not to. But hopefully by this time next year we will get the last 2 sections done, and maybe go back and do the section from white pass to snoqualmie as we went RIGHT by Mt Rainier and it is supposed to be g
