Christmas Adventures: Dortmund

On the way to our next stop we stopped in Dortmund to spy on the world's largest Christmas tree! This was very big, but made up of a lot of smaller trees which was interesting. 

The market was pretty nice

And we found food for lunch! Vegan grunkohl (this had a strong flavor and was so good! I had just been thinking I wish I could find a vegan version and then here we did!) and Stielmus (turnip greens) which we have never had and was super tasty as well. It was a lighter flavor, but yum! 

There were lots of fun light displays so it is probably even nicer after dark

Some of the light displays even had sound - this one had the sound of a crackling fire

Some fried brussel sprouts for a snack

And a cinnamon sugar chimney treat!

Dortmund was a great stop! They had so many treats for us and it was a really nice wander. We got super lucky with the weather as well. It was pouring when we went into the parking garage to park, but by the time we got outside again it wasn't raining. Then it started sprinkling when we were almost back to the car, and was pouring once we drove out! So perfect timing on our part! I would definitely stop by here again for the market if we were in the area.

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
