Campervan Adventures in Bavaria: Partnachklamm

I was super excited for Partnachklam after hiking Höllentalklamm a few days prior and absolutely loving it. Plus this gorge is advertised everywhere and is one of the things to do in the area. The day was a bit overcast and drizzly, but since we were just hiking in a gorge and would get wet anyways it didn't matter. Some sheeps on the way to the entrance.

There on the left is the path to the entrance...pretty flat

We fully geared up with raincoat, pants, and pack covers before heading in

This trail was not as wet as the other one as most of the water was falling off the overhangs not onto the actual trail

It was another beautiful gorge hike, but a lot busier which makes sense. It is so easy to get to and so much more accessible. I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't that wet! Also interesting that the tunnels had no lights in them and some were super dark!

After leaving the gorge we walked a bit farther than took a trail that would loop around back to the start, but first climbed up a bit to get to the top of the gorge. I think there are actually 2 ways to loop around, a trail to the left right when you get out of the gorge and a trail farther up to the right. We took the one farther up. 

These last 2 photos don't look very impressive, but there was a bridge over the gorge where you could look down on it and it was really cool. The highlight of the hike for me.

We stopped just outside the entrance to eat lunch and take off some of the rain gear (it was still sprinkling so the coat stayed on). I planned this trip then was talking with my two girlfriends here about when we were going and it ended up they each had planned vacation for the same time! Without talking to each other about it! Which was super odd, but oh well. My one friend said they were going to southern Germany and Austria and I was all we are going to southern Germany! But we didn't talk about where specifically we were going. Then when we were in Königsee I found out she was there too! And in this area at the same time as well! Well...we were hiking back to the car and Raymond said look who is coming this way. It was my friend!! So crazy that we actually ran into her on vacation that we independently planned and not only did our itineraries match up a lot, we actually ran into her and her family on our vacation! So crazy!

The parking for the gorge was by this ski jump - where Eddie the Eagle trained for the Olympics!

It was another shorter day as after our morning hike we headed back to the campsite and read all afternoon. And the weather at the campsite was once again much nicer than at the trail. It was only 13 km/8 miles walked according to my Fitbit.

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
