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: 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
