Bisenthaler Becken Hike Jan 2024

For my birthday this year I didn't really feel like planning anything so we went back up to Bisenthaler Becken to hike around a different area than we have in the past. We love this area and this was a perfect day for hiking! We parked in Lobetal and first wandered around Mechensee

Which is hard to tell as there is water on top, but the lake was frozen! Raymond commented that he thought it was and I was like I don't know is it? Then we saw some people walking on so yes, yes it was! We had had a lot of cold and snow the week prior, but that was all gone in Berlin, but it was so nice it was still frozen fun here!

And there was still snow on the ground!

We got to this part and I was like okay, that is a big puddle how to get across without getting my shoes soaking wet and again Raymond was like it is ice!

It looked like water though! So this was pretty fun

The ice in the tire tracks was also super cool - the darker spots are where the ice is and the lighter spots were frozen over where the air was. 

Like just bands of ice which was cool

A small outdoor church, but not in use in winter

We love this area already, but this was so much fun! All the snow, all the cool ice, all the things!

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. 

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. 

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
