Fall Trip 2022: Ludwigsburg & Kürbisaustellung

Finally we made it to Ludwigsburg and met up with my friend for a weekend of pumpkin fun! We had thought since it was the end of Oct it would be pretty chilly outside...but it was so warm and sunny! Which is nice when you are being covid cautious and staying outside, eating outside, everything outside, but unexpected! I definitely didn't pack for warm weather!


The pumpkin fest was at the palace which was nice we got to explore the grounds



And there were still flowers blooming





Such colorful birds!

There were sand sculptures as well as all the pumpkin fun

Heaviest pumpkins


And all the pumpkin sculptures! This year it was animal/rainforest themed


We were a bit too early for the spooky light shows (I believe they started the next weekend), but they were getting ready and testing things out while we were there









Some of the carved pumpkins were getting a bit old...some had collapsed already


And people were carving new ones



So many pumpkins!


There was a large area with all the different varieties! So many, this is just a tiny section!





They even had food I could eat! The pumpkin soup and this pumpkin rice were vegan - I went with the rice as it looked and was so tasty!













It was so much fun!




Afterwards we wandered around town a little bit



It was such a fun trip! All the fall/pumpkin fun was had! We definitely loved the Harz area and have been back since this trip, but we might have to go back to the pumpkin fest also as it was really nice!

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. 

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
