Campervan Adventures in Spain & Portugal: On the way home

Today we woke up and started driving. It said 13 hours to Berlin, which is slightly long so we decided to see where we were around 6 and stop there for the night. I forgot it was a long weekend in Germany so all the campgrounds were full, but we found a parking lot place in Herford that had space so we stayed there. 

And wandered in to spy on the town













Here is where they drowned witches

We also found an Indian restaurant so we got some takeout to have for dinner! It was pretty good and the spicy was actually spicy!

The next day it was up and ready to go and finish driving home as soon as we could leave. It was only a few hours drive which was nice as we had plenty of time to unpack and relax. 

We had such a good time on our Spain & Portugal trip! I loved Northern Spain the most. The beaches in southern Portugal were also amazing, but the towns were meh. I think we could have spent this entire trip just in N Spain and been happy. In fact I am definitely going to be planning a longer trip there in the future! There are so many fun beaches to explore and mountains to hike in and I really really loved it there. I could see spending like a year there and just enjoying everything. Plus it was not nearly as warm as southern Spain! We will be back for sure!

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
