Peanuts

Today we didn’t do all that much. It’s not that we have nothing to do, it’s just been a long time since we got to just chill out on a Sunday and re-charge a bit. Of what we did accomplish is a bit more cooking and some home-made peanut butter. Andrew in particular has been...

Rainy days

Today started out nice and warm – we decided it was time to head into Nafplio to brave the produce market, which seems to occur almost daily. The market was busy and full of great produce we’ve been itching for. The past few days of souvlaki has been alright but getting some nice...

Comfort food

As of today, the parts for the van are on order and are scheduled to arrive in on Monday. Other than that, it was a bit of a quiet day – after finishing up work for the day we headed to our friends place for an evening of movies and home-made chicken soup. A good way to recoup from a...

Sunday Fishin’

Last night was incredibly cold – we hit the -5C for the first time in a couple of months. I think January was the last time we slept in the van when it was below zero and we’ve been working hard at keeping it that way. This morning there was a healthy dose of frost on everything....

Food and Friends

Our day was spent catching up on work and catching up with our friends. Throw in a home cooked meal with some Alaskan Salmon and all is right with the...

Hibernation Mode

We were trying to go on a tour today but the weather in Seward was rain for the absolute entire day. Since what we want to do is really weather dependant we are going to try again tomorrow. So, with a soggy forcast and no real plans, we pretty much went into hibernation mode after doing a...

Alaskan-made

We continued on to Fairbanks today grabbing our necessities in town. Gas, Groceries, and some local beer. Amongst our groceries we sought out some Alaskan specialities including Caribou Steak Alaska and Polish Reindeer Sausage. On our way out of town we also found some Muskox but they...

Sourtoe Saloon

We finally made if off the Dempster! Aside from running out of gas yesterday, no extra incidents and we were more than pleased to be driving on pavement again. Out drive started off pretty bad because it rained all night making the roads ultra slippery. The weather and the roads got...

Place of Man

We were back in our coffee shop again this morning. After a bit of work we wandered around town to find some bread. This could be seen as kind of an adventure of sorts because nothing really looks like a typical store or company from down south. The NorthMart however, I think I could guess....

Full Kitchen

Today was work and then over to our friends. We made some quiche which was a treat because I don’t think I’ve used an oven in over a month. Some bacon, onion, mushrooms, broccoli and cheese with a bunch of eggs. Plus a vegetarian version sans bacon & onion. It’s nice to...

Chasing the Setting ...

Today we did another hike – this one however, was a doozie. Our morning was mostly spent on the phone with family which turns out wasn’t the smartest plan given the rest of the day’s circumstances. It was partially necessary since we’ve been in iffy cell zones in the...

Quirky A1A

I was feeling pretty sick today, I’m not quite sure what it was but it started with a headache last night and all I felt like doing was sleeping. So I did. Meanwhile, Andrew drove us south the whole way down the A1A highway (the eastern Florida coastal highway). From what I saw, it was...

Jump around!
