Fall Trip 2022: Bad Harzburg Hiking

On our trip to Harz we stayed in Bad Harzburg a few nights and there was a hike from the top of the cable cars that went to a lynx enclosure so of course we had to go spy. 

The cable car took forever as they were small and only 2 of them so I am glad we got there before they opened (there was already a long line, but nothing like when we got back down!). But there were gorgeous views from the top! All the fall colors!

I believe this is from near the lynx enclosure...we didn't see any, but there were lots of people trying to spy them!

It was so pretty!

Going back down there were a few ways to go - the cable car which we took up or this thing where you are suspended under a cable and ride down that way (kind of like a zipline, but not? I don't know how to describe it). You can only go one at a time and I thought it sounded fun so we were going to see what the line was like when we were ready to head down...and it was way too long. It would have been hours of waiting and well we didn't want to do that. 

So cable car it was

And we decided to go to this cafe and get waffles and beverages for an afternoon snack. They had vegan and non (Raymond went with a normal waffle, but my vegan one was amazing! I loved it so much, but it was very filling so wasn't really hungry for dinner later). 

Then wandered more around town

And finally back to our place to relax. Even though we didn't see the lynx it was such a fun day (and a reason why we have to go back! At least until we see them!)

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 install

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. 

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
