Fall trip 2022: Quedlingburg

Fall 2022 my friend had just moved over to Munich and we had decided to go on a trip to celebrate! We had been planning on going to Tuscany, but it was just after Oktoberfest in Munich and she had a lot of in person things to go to for work resulting in people she was in close contact with testing positive for Covid. We decided to cancel our plans because a) We don't want Covid and b) if she did catch it right before leaving and would be really sick it is nicer to be sick at home than on vacation. So we chatted and there is a pumpkin festival in Ludwigsburg and we decided to meet up there for a long weekend instead. 

Raymond and I decided to still take a week to go hiking and explore a new to us area - Harz! And I am so glad we did! It was gorgeous! 

The first stop was Quedlingburg. We got there in the evening so once we were settled in we wandered the town to see what we could see. It was pretty empty which was odd as it wasn't that late, but really pretty.





The next day we went on a full tour of the town. It is not that big so it was pretty easy to navigate around.



There were more people out and about during the day























St Servius church is up on a hill


With views over the town









For an afternoon snack we got these chimney treat! They were all vegan!

And wandered back up to the lookout to enjoy the views once more


Quedlingburg was such a cute town. It was like we were in Beauty and the Beast, my favorite!

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
