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 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
