Christmas Adventures: Aachen

After Essen it was on to Aachen where we would spend the night

It was a short walk from where we were staying to the Christmas Market

The Archeological Showcase in Elisengarten

The Christmas Market was really busy! Not as bad as Leipzig, but not great. We were able to mask up and wander through, but it was the last night so most of the stands had everything on sale and people were going crazy for them! One thing there was a lot of was Aachener Printen cookies. They didn't have any signs that said they were vegan and the bags didn't have ingredients so I assumed they weren't for me (and the people were so busy I would have had to wait forever to ask)

A bit of a wander through town on the way back to our place

Once we got home I looked up the Aachener Printen to see if there were vegan ones available anywhere...and found the base is actually vegan! The only non-vegan ones were the milk or white chocolate-covered ones so we had to go out and get some to try! They were so good. Spiced cookies with anis flavor. Mmmm I wish I had some right now. 

This was just a quick stop overnight again, but it was fun. I would definitely come back to Aachen to see what else there is to see in the city (and get more cookies!)

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
