Sept Adventures 2023: Hiking near Wernigerode & Thale

Today we got up and went for a hike in the valley above Wernigerode

The trail we were following was pretty nice with good views, though at one point it got very overgrown with tall grasses so we made our own way to where we were going on better trails

Having a homemade Blueberry Iced Tea which was so refreshing while relaxing by the Steinerne Renne waterfall

This was such a nice spot for a break and to have lunch!

The way back to the car was along the water and nice and cool

Then it was off to our next stop - Thale

We stayed right by Friedenspark

And Raymond lost his hat somewhere so we wandered into town to find a new on. 

There were so many wooden sculptures/benches everywhere

Back in the park

So many fun benches!

Thale is a strange town as there isn't really a good downtown to wander around. But there is great hiking in the area so it was a good place to stay. 

I hadn't found a ton of food options in Thale so we headed into Quedlingburg for dinner at Le Feu

For flammkuchen! We had the falafel and potato flammkuchen

And tried the apple and the apple pear for dessert! The apple pear one was flambéd with Cointreau, which I was iffy on, but it was really good

And then a quick wander through town on the way back to the car

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
