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.

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
