Christmas Adventures: Bielefeld

Our last stop on our Christmas market tour was Bielefeld. When I booked the trip I didn't know there was an online joke that Bielefeld doesn't exist. It wasn't until we were traveling that Raymond told me about it. I looked up the city when we got close to see what there was to do and everything was like there is nothing fun to see or do there so I was like oh, okay...I guess we will have a relaxing day there?

When we got in we wandered down to the Christmas market to spy and it was really nice!

We didn't spy on everything, but we did find quite a few places that had vegan foods that sounded good so we had that to look forward to the next day

The next day we were off to explore the city

Some vegan grunkohl! for lunch! This was good, but not as good as the one we had in Dortmund

And a giant soft pretzel, though we were sad as it wasn't fresh and hot, but still tasty

A small sculpture park

Then we headed up the hill to Sparrenburg Castle/fortress which was pretty small, but had views of the city

This was really fun to wander around, and there were a lot of nice trails too

Then back down to the sculpture park

And through town

Some churros for an afternoon snack - they were so tasty!

For a town that has nothing interesting to see or do, is not on a river, is just unremarkable, I really enjoyed Bielefeld! It was much nicer than a lot of towns we have been to and I really enjoyed my time wandering. I would definitely come back here, especially at Christmas time or in the fall and wander some of the trails. I loved Bielefeld!

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
