Christmas Adventures Part 1: Erfurt part 3 & Leipzig

The next day we got up and had a last wander through the markets in Erfurt

We got some vegan bratwurst for lunch

And a flammkuchen from the main market. This was good, but not as good as the one we had the night prior

Then it was off to Leipzig for our last stop of the trip. I had always heard that their Christmas market was really nice, but omg it was WAY too crowded (This was the main market and it was a Saturday evening so understandable, but I quickly was like this is too much! You couldn't even walk through or see anything at the stalls cause there were so many people!). 

Luckily some of the other market areas were still crowded, but not as bad. We did find a vegan flammkuchen in a not as crowded area - potato and vegan cheese - this was just alright

Overnight we got more snow! This is the balcony where we were staying

Lots of big icicles!

We went back to the market the next morning and it was so much nicer to walk through! WAY less people!

Still busy, but you could actually walk through and see the things

One last fried brussel sprouts

And some Leipzig Larke to take home and try. These were alright - marzipan in pastry, these with chocolate and walnuts. 

Leipzig Christmas market was okay. Nothing special though. I wouldn't make a trip just to go there, but Erfurt I would! It was amazing! We will for sure be going back there again as we had a wonderful time there! Their markets were our favorite and it was a really magical start to the Christmas season!

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
