    Heimfahrt über Truckee

    March 17 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 11 °C

    Für den Heimweg haben wir uns die schnellere Highway-Route ausgesucht. Hier konnten wir ein letztes Mal die riesigen Schneemassen am Straßenrand bestaunen. Einen Zwischenstopp machten wir in Truckee, einer Stadt am Truckee River, der übrigens nach einem Indianerhäuptling benannt wurde. Der Fluss fließt vom Tahoe Lake bis zum Pyramid Lake.

    Die Stadt Truckee hat eine historische Altstadt, wo sich viele Touristenläden tummeln. Dort lag auch noch viel Schnee, sodass wandern mal wieder ausfiel. Wir haben ein Restaurant gesehen, das „Best Pies“ hieß. Voller Vorfreude auf Pies wollten wir dort essen...nur um herauszufinden, dass es sich um New Yorker Pies handelt, die eigentlich Pizzen sind. Es war aber wirklich eine hervorragende Pizza! Ganz knusprig und super frischer Belag. Marlens Hälfte war „Caprese“. Da war neben Tomate und Mozzarella auch Crema di Balsamico drauf...das werden wir in Deutschland definitiv übernehmen müssen 😁 Zur Feier des St. Patrick war der Teig noch grün gefärbt. Hat dem Geschmack aber keinen Abbruch getan.

    Von dort aus war es nicht mehr so weit nach Hause, aber wir standen im Stau. Sonntag Abend kommen wohl viele vom Skifahren wieder zurück. Es war insgesamt ein sehr schöner Kurzurlaub 👌

    White water rafting

    July 15, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    We had to wake up early AGAIN because we were going white water rafting!! 👏 👏 👏 white water Rafting is where you go on a raft and the current pushes you on the river! In rafting, from highest to lowest there are 5 levels. Today we will be doing level 3. It was my first time and I was hoping there were no 🐟 fish. It took 1 hour by car and 10 minutes on the white water rafting bus 🚌. Me,Conor and another boy were the only children. The rest were adults. A professional photographer called Chris was there and He used me as the model for the opening slide! He chose me because he said "You look like you have a nice smile." 😊 I was on the first photo holding a "enjoy the video sign!!" We got everything set up and Adam (a leader) chose Ivan for us, because Ivan was the most experienced and the best for children. We got on our raft and off we went. The Truckee river is a very clear and a very shallow river and is 5 miles long. We were allowed to swim in the 'Swimming holes where the water is deep and calm. Me and Conor went in the Swimming hole twice and it was VERY cold, the water was app.15 c and Conor had goosebumps! We used our paddles when Ivan said to used them. When we were on our first rapid the drop wasn't that big. On the second drop, it was deep and the third level rapids, (there were 2: 'Jaws' and 'Pinball') I was most scared about pinball because we were the 'ball'. When we went on Jaws there was a HUGE drop! Water came in from everywhere and me and Conor's teeth were chattering!!! It was freezing, colder than summer in Ireland 🇮🇪!!! Conor was going to cry because he didn't want to go on Pinball, but I told him "would you rather stay in this river for the whole night, or just do Pinball" and he replied "Pinball" and after all, Pinball wasn't scary.
    That was veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery fun and I want to do that again!!!!!!
