Hello! Terve! Moi! Hei!

I was walking outside, and right now I want to show some places of my hometown Jyväskylä.

This is the street, where the most of the shops located. We call this strees as kävelykatu. It's like a main street of this city, and there's no aloud to drive a car.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-kQQAoTRjmeQ/T4kNlYaUDII/AAAAAAAAIJ0/0e2UDjD6IWU/s640/142.JPG

There's a long stairs. These stairs are in a place called Harju. It's like a small hill just next to city center. Just take a look down, and you will see some part of the city center of Jyväskylä.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-OGF4A63lDhg/T4kNiA2saPI/AAAAAAAAIJE/5c6lUjf3qpc/s512/132.JPG

This building is one of the evangelical lutheran church in Jyväskylä.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-R_HrSpuquW0/T4kNh7cGr8I/AAAAAAAAIJI/RHL4N13JKas/s512/133.JPG

...And there I am, sitting with ToyVoyagers friends on the stairs of that church.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-F6C98Xb2I6w/T4kNjgAVJRI/AAAAAAAAIJk/jcR-3RbNLHk/s512/139.JPG

There's Sylvia, Tokki, Sweetheart-, Krok Little, Mo, Ape Apina, me, Porridge, Amie and Niiskuneiti.

This is the story how I have been found.

Mommy has many ToyVoyagers with her, and she was thinking it would be nice if all can meet other ToyVoyagers, too. So, together with her friend Reissari, they planned
a ToyVoyager meeting!
They decided to meet with all they travelling toy friens in the Natural History Museum of Central Finland...


The Natural History Museum's website (click) tells that "The Natural History Section serves as a preservation unit for natural scientific research, and displays environmental subjects and research material. It takes care of the living plants of the botanical garden on the campus. It also receives wild animals found dead and prepares scientific samples of them. The section has a collection of over 250 000 samples, the most numerous being invertebrates, plants and moss."

...And there I was, inside the museum's shop. Mommy saw me there, and she wanted to give me a nice and better life, so she decided to adopt me. Love you, mommy!

That day was my first day of my new life. And that day was WONDERFUL! I met many other ToyVoyagers, and we all became friends. How nice is that! :)

Here we are... all sitting together in front of the big sized bear.

Hi!

After visiting the Natural History Museum of Central Finland, I was really hungry. So, we all went to eat something at the restaurant named Food. It was nice place.

Here we are, waiting to have something to eat.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-M6JeQxdW9tI/T4kNpkRVa1I/AAAAAAAAIK4/qp__twUhc_Y/s640/151.JPG

They served ice water in these huge things. We had to climb on each other to get a chance to drink it.

Hey mummy,

I arrived safely here at Karins place. She welcomed me with a big hug.

Karin and her boyfriend live with Karins parents in a big house. Karin and Jimmy have their own flat on the first floor.
They have many pets. Karin promised me that we will take photos with them soon.

Today Karin showed me the ToyVoyager room. The room is really cool and comfortable.

Today Karin took me to the garden. We made a lot of photos. There were such beautiful flowers.... you cant imagine mummy.
I lay in the green gras for a really long time because the sun was shining sooo bright and warm.

Love you

Hey mummy.

Today was such a beautiful day, you can`t imagine.
Karin her family and I walked around in the "Schlosspark Laxenburg". The sun was shining the birds were singing and the flowers smelled good.
It was really hot but I liked it. There are many stone bridges because
in the park theres a lake where you can cruise around with little electro boats. Unfortunately there were so many people who wanted to get a boat that we thought its better just watch them cruising around. Instead we drove with a ferry.

Afterwards we went to a "Heurigen". The food was good there. I was allowed to taste the food from the whole family. mmmhhhm  :cyclops:

Hi Mummy,
I arrived at my new host's home! She had to pick me up at the post office, I had to wait there for one day.

My new host Katja and some ToyVoyagers gave me a warm welcome. My new friends are Lorca, Orkku Orava, Alberto and Leopoldi.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8018/7433148066_babc9364e9_o.jpg

I had a yummy breakfast with tons of honey!

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7135/7433148806_b9155e4918_o.jpg

I had a look at the fridge than, there I found many souvirs from Katja's own ToyVoyagers - magnets and postcards.

http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5330/7433148582_72aa5e29d4_o.jpg

Katja suggested that we could take a walk, that sounds great!

After finishing breakfast we took a walk in the forest. We started our trip in a rural district in the West of the municipal area.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7265/7433149096_590929fd91_o.jpg

We walked in the valley along river Wupper. You could cross it here.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7254/7433149344_2eee0bd0a1_o.jpg

http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5115/7433149598_d09fec2fc3_o.jpg

We saw foxglove in the forest, lovely flowers, but extremely poisonous.

http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5316/7433149912_3e83b8c6b1_o.jpg

We took a group photo on this cartwheel.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7275/7433191362_00f748ff6e_o.jpg

We reached the historical district Unterburg in the neighbour city Solingen. This church was built in late 17th century.

http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5196/7433150160_29f2792d4f_o.jpg

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7110/7433150420_4c62fff4df_o.jpg

I saw lovely half-timbered houses here. Katja told me that those house are traditional houses, mostly built in late 19th century. They often have green shutters and a green front door.

http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5316/7433150798_712a753301_o.jpg

This creek is flowing into river Wupper here.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8015/7433151048_9a270425e9_o.jpg

This statue is showing a "Kiepenkerl", hard working men who carried all sorts of goods through the rangy landscape in their panniers.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7108/7433151260_0e844723d8_o.jpg

Have a look at this beautiful house!

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8145/7433151630_790dac3208_o.jpg

We still followed river Wupper until we reached this bridge. We crossed the river here and walked back on the other bank.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8166/7433152006_b61de6d2a3_o.jpg

In the meantime a medieval castle came into sight, Schloss Burg. Unfortunatelay we did not come close enough for a better photo.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7115/7433152174_a19e877fd4_o.jpg

Our path led us uphill for some time, in the valley you can see Unterburg.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8018/7433152446_6d1030f66c_o.jpg

Here we saw more lovely houses with narrow lanes.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7133/7433152680_ef0d387a7d_o.jpg

It started to rain than, so we all disappeared into Katja's bag  while she and her friend became wet, we still had to walk back to the car for an hour :)

Hi Mummy,

we went to a DIY-store today, we had to look for wall paint and other thngs. My host is going to move to another apartment next month and she wants to paint the walls..

We went there in Katja's lunch break. Because the weather was really great, we took a walk to the DIY-store through the city centre. First Katja showed us the entrance area of the shopping mall, Allee-Center. There is a large fountain in front of it.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8014/7462015498_955026c9c4_o.jpg

When we reached the end of the shopping street Katja showed us another fountain, a very colorful one with funny water games.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7249/7462015988_a15a58fb02_o.jpg

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7128/7462016136_9b2241a122_o.jpg

Oh dear, this area does not look so nice ... Katja told me that DIY-stores often were situated on industrial estates and those often do not look to nice.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8145/7462016668_5a00a46194_o.jpg

Here we looked for wall paint.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8023/7462017194_fc26093a26_o.jpg

On our way back we came along the station area, it was built about three years ago, a bridge for pedestrians was opened last year.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8168/7462016324_17782b55c4_o.jpg

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8145/7462017526_a3640b8997_o.jpg

This is the new bridge. Cyclists and pedestrias can now reach the city centre much faster than before when they had to cross severeal streets to get there.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7107/7462018100_a17854b3a8_o.jpg

On our way back to the office we bought a few things for lunch, we were starving!

Hi Mummy,

today we started to paint the walls in Katja's new apartement.

After protecting the edge of the ceiling and the  washboards we started to paint her favourite colour in the bedroom.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8006/7481174360_b464bcaa9d_o.jpg

We even managed to paint the wall without getting terribly dirty :D

Hi Mummy,
today there was only time for a rather short walk in the city. First I'll show you the water tower behind the city hall.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8158/7481557436_878c04f22d_o.jpg

We walked behind the shopping mall.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8149/7481557980_86e04ee851_o.jpg

I found another flower here (although most people would call it a pest plant, for me it is a FLOWER), a thistle, even with a ladybird sitting on it.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8148/7481558212_77e9e922b9_o.jpg

Here you can see the central bus station.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8152/7481558464_e51ee108bf_o.jpg

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8168/7481558694_efc9e3452c_o.jpg

From a bridge we had a good look at a region called "Hohenhagen", a housing area close to a large woodland area. Katja told us that she likes to take walks there.

Hi Mummy,
at the moment we are doing nothing but paining the walls in my host's new apartment. We were not sure how to paint the kitchen walls. We already painted the upper parts of the walls with an off-white color. We tried to make Katja's favourite color.

Some cream-white color, a bit blue color and t......oise color....

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7119/7507074376_de1a007c02_o.jpg

Guess what is her favourite color - we mixed it perfectly!

Hello!

I visited in a new place today: Korpilahti. It's located very near of Jyväskylä.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-ufM7N0ssmmc/UBvpuK3qdGI/AAAAAAAAQcs/odZYiPgyy30/s640/074.JPG

I was there with mommy in a postcrossing meeting. I had such a great time in the meeting, and I met new ToyVoyagers there!
Another host (Fendi) was there, too, and offcourse with all her toys and toy-guests (PieksiHH, Nils and Kitsune).

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-wSiYewstscM/UBvpNo6UdgI/AAAAAAAAQZA/Fw4ntMzSoq4/s553/004.JPG

We all toys have really fun time together! :D
When mom and other humans there wrote postcards,
we toys were eating their snacks, hih.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-YBw0M7GC-FE/UBrcTiWVrqI/AAAAAAAAQU4/5P4y0GLd7R8/s640/006.JPG

After eating we got thirsty, so we made coffee.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-CEROJtRvKxg/UBvqEqFyP7I/AAAAAAAAQeQ/1fD-cif_ZAA/s640/012.JPG

And then we played hide and seek! But it didn't go so well,
because the most of us was hiding under the glass.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-sTyxb6JsZoQ/UBvqMXTuBQI/AAAAAAAAQek/3ISyBNTMR64/s640/016.JPG

Here are only some of the postcards what postcrossers wrote.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-AYAtFAjwv50/UBvpZXxYtYI/AAAAAAAAQao/bwm9hT7uJv0/s547/030.JPG

And here we toys are helping to mail those postcards. :)

We said goodbye to him, and wished a safe and confortable journey.

And then the new toy Cody Otter beaver arrived here. He told very interesting stories about his travels. He has a travel memories notebook with him, and he showed it to us. It was nice!

Hugs,

Hei! Hello!

I'm so exited, because I heard I will take part in RR for ToyVoyagers!
And mommy said I will start travelling very soon. It's so great! :)
But before leaving here I wanted to go outside and see the sunset. It was beautiful.

Hugs,

Hei! Hello!

Today is the day I start travelling again. I'm going to join in Long time RR, and I will go to visit Germany first.
I'm so exited about it. :)

Mommy gave me one guide for my journey: "Nauti jokaisesta hetkestä!" which means "Enjoy every moment!". I'm going to keep that guide in my mind. :)

Everyone here said goodbye to me, and they wished me to have great journey. I'm going to miss them, but in the same time I'm really exited to see new places in World.

Well, Germany, be ready, I'm coming!!!

Bzzzzz

Hello Mum.

Today I arrived at Bochum. I was so excited to see, who will be there to welcome me.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Ankunft%20Bzzzzz/DSCN8235600x450-1.jpg

Then my envelope was opened and the first thing I could see was a friendly face looking at me. Then I could see that it was a little hedgehog. His name is Knöpfchen and he will also take part in our long time RR.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Ankunft%20Bzzzzz/DSCN8236600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Ankunft%20Bzzzzz/DSCN8237600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Ankunft%20Bzzzzz/DSCN8238600x450.jpg

Then I saw all the other TVs who waited to welcome me. There were Hase (Germany), Purple Tentacle (Germany), Sterni (Germany), Little Dragon (Germany), Zeitgeist (Germany) and Snowball the stay at home TV from my new host mum Shilo.
We talked a while over our adventures; it was cool to hear so many new stories.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Ankunft%20Bzzzzz/DSCN8239600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Ankunft%20Bzzzzz/DSCN8240600x450.jpg

Then I showed the others the things I had brought with me. Snowball was very happy when I gave her the postcard. She told me that she is collecting the postcards from all around the world, which the visiting TVs were bringing with them.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Ankunft%20Bzzzzz/DSCN8241600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Ankunft%20Bzzzzz/DSCN8260600x450.jpg

After that the others hugged me to welcome me warmly. It was so really nice.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Ankunft%20Bzzzzz/DSCN8243600x450.jpg

Then we went into the kitchen and took out a cool ice cream. Purple helped Little to cut the ice into pieces. Can you see the small butterfly’s on it?

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Ankunft%20Bzzzzz/DSCN7978600x450.jpg

The ice cream was very yummy.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Ankunft%20Bzzzzz/DSCN7981600x450.jpg

I think I will have a great time here in Bochum together with all the other TVs.

See you

Good afternoon Mum.

Today is the famous Festival of Lights in Dortmund in the Westfahlenpark.
When we arrived in the park, we searched for the right place for our picnic and the firework in the evening. It was a great picnic and we had a lot of delicious foods.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Lichterfest%202012/DSCN7994600x450.jpg

After this great meal we had some time before the firework starts, so we were walking around the park. We saw a lot of cool lambs and pictures that were made out of lights.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Lichterfest%202012/DSCN8066450x600.jpg

Than at half past ten it was time for the firework. It was really amazing. Sometimes I had the feeling like the whole sky was full with lights.

Hello Mum.

Today we had to say goodbye to Knöpfchen. He is starting the long time RR today and because of this he is traveling to nuriayasmin today. I wish him a save journey and that he will experience great adventures on the RR.
I hope we will meet again one day and that we will have the chance to spend more time together.
We all hugged him before he went into his envelope.

Goodbye Knöpfchen

Hi Mum.

Today Zeitgeist and Little Dragon were leaving. It was sad to say goodbye to them after such a short time. I hope they will experience a lot of cool adventures in the future.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Abschied%20Little%20und%20Zeitgeist/DSCN8296600x450.jpg

Before they left we took a last group picture together.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Abschied%20Little%20und%20Zeitgeist/DSCN8295600x450.jpg

We hugged them and wished them a save trip. I hope I get the chance to meet the two again one day, so we could spend more time together.

Hello Mum.

Today was a special day. We went to Mandrara a good friend from my host mum Shilo. There we met the family from Little Dragon, his parents Imodra Dragon and Feru Dragon and Thorin Dragon his elder brother. We also met a lot of other TVs Rosalind, Karlos, Drashuven and BineHH.

And do you know who was there too? I was very surprised when I saw Suomi-girl, but it was a wonderful surprise. I was so happy to see her and to talk about home.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Gruppentreffen/DSCN8476600x450.jpg

Then it was time to eat something. I had a typical German fast food, curry sausage with fries.

Good morning Mum.

Today was very cool, because we visited an amusement park called Phantasialand. We stood up very early this morning so we could enter the park right after the opening. Because of that we had a lot of time to have fun on the attractions.

Hello Mum.

This was a very special Weekend. We visited good friends from my host parents in the Saarland, because Shilos godson will be baptized this Sunday. It was very special for me to be here, because I saw so many different baptize traditions.
The Saarland is next to France and because of this they had a special baptize tradition which comes from France. The godmothers and godfathers of the child pack “Gutzien”, little backs with sweets. After the baptism they were a present for all the kids, the family and friends so they welcome the child as a part of their community.

Here we are shopping the sweets for the “Gutzien”. The sweets look so yummy.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Taufe/DSCN8485600x450.jpg

After our shopping trip it was time to pack the backs. First all the sweets were mixed together in a big laundry basket. Who wants to swim in gold, swimming in sweets is much cooler. :)

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Taufe/DSCN8492600x450.jpg

Then we helped Shilo to fill the bags. At the end we had packed 50 “Gutzien” and the best is that we have our own “Gutzien”.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Taufe/DSCN8494600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Taufe/DSCN8503600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Taufe/DSCN8504600x450.jpg

This is the christening robe. It is hands made and in family property since generations and a lot of kids were baptized in this robe.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Taufe/DSCN8499450x600.jpg

Then we had some free time, so we took the chance and played around in the garden.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Taufe/DSCN8524600x450.jpg

Another tradition for the baptism is that an apple tree was planted. So one of the godfathers brought one with him and we planted it in the garden.  It wasn’t easy but it made a lot of fun. I wonder how the apples will taste one day.

Shilo gave the baby a baptism bracelet. It is another tradition here in Germany. Unfortunately we forgot to take a picture with it.
It was a special weekend for me and I had a lot of fun.

Love you mum

Hello Mum.

Today arrived a new envelope. I was so pry to see who was inside. The others allowed me to open the envelope.

Then he showed us the postcard he had brought with him.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Ankunft%20Mr%20Stanley/DSCN8974600x450.jpg

In the evening we played some board games. The first game we played was “Heimlich & Co.”. In this game you should hide from the others which figure color is yours to win the game.

The next game we played was “DonPeperoni”. In this game you want to become the mayor of a small town. To become the mayor you could win votes by giving the people money. It was a very funny game.

The last game we played this evening was “Bezzerwizzer”. It is a quiz game, where you had to answer questions. Some questions were easy but others were extremely hard to answer.

Hello Mum.

Today Snowball took us into the cinema. We planned to watch “the expendables 2”. Look Mum I’ve got my own Ticket.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/kino%20expendables/DSCN8723600x450.jpg

While we were waiting for the movie we were watching around the cinema.  On this big screen we could watch movie trailer.

Look we have found a giant movie display from the film.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/kino%20expendables/DSCN8732600x450.jpg

Then it was time for the movie. We all charred a seat together, while we were watching the movie.

Good morning Mum.

Today we drove to Hagen, were we are visiting the open-air museum. This museum is really cool because it is the only open-air museum in Europe which shows only the history of craft and technology. It shows moments of the history of the Westphalia craft and technology from the end of the 18. to the 20. Centaury.

Hello Mum.

Today was a lazy day, so we decided to go to the playground. On the way to the playground we walked through the garden plot which is behind the house from host mum. Behind this garage we could see the house.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Kleingarten%20und%20Spielplatz/DSCN8979600x450_zps3460076c.jpg

Garden plots were typical German and also the garden gnomes which we could see in some gardens. It was really nice to walk this way.

Hello Mum.

Today Snowball showed us around the Bochumer City. It was cool to walk around there. We saw this old statue which is a memorial of Fritz Kortebusch the last cowherd in Bochum, who had done this job from 1850 till 1870.

Near the memorial we saw this interesting art sculptures. Unfortunately the battery of Shilos cam was empty so we couldn’t take more pictures of the city.

When we were back at home we had to say goodbye to Hase. She will travel to Berlin and visit Orangesunshine there.  Before she left we hugged her and wished her a save trip and a lot of great adventures on her way.
I will miss her because we became good friends the time we spend together.

Hello Mum.

Today was very funny because Snowball took us to a bowling Centre. She told us how to play. She said that we had to throw one of the bowling balls onto the pins, so that they fall down. I played with the pink ball from Shilo. The ball is so extremely huge and heavy that it wasn’t easy to roll it. But I made it and I had a lot of fun. I throw a strike but I forgot to take a picture of it because we were celebrating it. :)

Hello Mum.

Today we drove to Essen and visited the Phänomania. It’s an exhibition we could learn something about our senses and the law of nature.
This wheel is very cool. When I was spinning it, it went up and when it stood still it went down.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Phaenomania/DSCN9109600x450.jpg

Look I found an old Asian music instrument with Snowball

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Phaenomania/DSCN9120600x450.jpg

When I beat this drum the bang blows out the candles at the end of this tunnel.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Phaenomania/DSCN9126450x600.jpg

Mum what do you think which one of this monsters is bigger? *g*

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Phaenomania/DSCN9127450x600.jpg

In this vase were different things which we could feel with our hands and guess what it is.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Phaenomania/DSCN9130600x450.jpg

It was very funny to play with these balls and watch them moving

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Phaenomania/DSCN9134450x600.jpg

In these bottles we could smell a lot of different aromas. I was very good in it, but some of the aromas don’t smell good.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Phaenomania/DSCN9137600x450.jpg

Here we were exploring a cool tactually pathway.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Phaenomania/DSCN9140600x450.jpg

Mum I’ve learned a lot about light today. Can you see the different colors of the shadows behind us? We made them with different lights in green, blue, red and yellow.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Phaenomania/DSCN9142600x450.jpg

Outside the exhibition we could play around before we went back home. It was a very funny and interesting day for me.

Hello Mum.

Today we were visiting Mandrara a friend from host mum. We planned to play a game together with the TVs who were staying with Mandrara.  And I had the chance to meet Suomi-girl again, I was so happy to see her.
We decided to play Descent, in this game we had to defeat monsters in a dungeon.
At the start the dungeon was very small, but with every door we opened it got bigger and bigger and we found more monsters. We got special weapons or magical spells to attack the monsters. A while it looks very good and we seemed to win the game, but in the end the monsters were to strong and we lost. But this is ok because we had a lot of fun together.

Hello Mum.

This weekend is very special, because we were visiting the SPIEL '12 with COMIC ACTION - the world's biggest consumer fair for gaming. There we have the opportunity to see and test games from all around the world and for that we have four days. *g*

I am so happy because we are finally in Essen and behind me you could see the entrance.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Spiel%202012/DSCN9174600x450.jpg

Wow, here were so many people.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Spiel%202012/DSCN9163600x450.jpg

Look mum; I want to show you some of the games that we played here. We played River Dragon, Zug um Zug, Las Vegas and Fire Station. They were all very funny.

One of the best things on the exhibition was the stand from Dungeons & Dragons. They were very friends to us and so we could play with their miniatures.

Hello Mum.

Today we were preparing a Halloween dinner. We made scary looking chicken wings and croquettes. They were looking like ghosts and pumpkins. I love Halloween.

Hello Mum.

I am really sorry that I haven’t written for such a long time, but Shilo was very busy the last weeks so that we were only sitting around. But today she told me, that I will travel on to my new Host. I am very excited to meet new TVs.
But before I left I packed a package just for you mum.

And after that it was time to say goodbye to my new friends. I became a little bit sad to leave them, but I am sure that I will meet them again one day. Before I jumped into my envelope the others hugged me and wished me a save trip.

On the way back from Ottawa, just outside of town, host mom stopped to try to photograph an enormous flock of snow geese that were both resting in a field and circling in the air. Our stopping made them nervous and they started to fly away. She tried to photograph them, but the photos don't do justice to the majesty of the scene!

Hello my mum,


Bzzzzz,  Bzzzzz,..........Bzzzzz.

After a long and dispensable journey it seemed I arrived at my new

ritsch!!! daylight fell into my dwelling and a big teddyface looked in

my envelope….. Ähhmmm… did bears like bees? :stare:

the air….. and they thaught a bee needs flowers…

so they all sat together at the last cold winterevenings to knit a

bathtube full of flowers to welcome me.. Huiiii what a lovely bathe…

Hello mum,

Spring is in the air, at last it´s getting warmer outside. Bubele, Mr.

Good morning, Guten Morgen, hyvää huomenta mum

last weekend I made a trip through East-Westphalia-Lippe and I

follow the touristic path to visit the most interesting tourist features

of that area  ;) I started in an old half-Timber-town called Bad

Salzuflen

with an accommondation.

Bad Salzuflen is a spa town and is known for its saltwater springs

and thermal baths. In former times the town profited from the salt

trade. Many houses of well-off citizens from the 16th and 17th

century are preserved.

so big that you can ascend it. The statue call Hermann, it´s the

Hermansdenkmal near Detmold.

Back on solid floor I continued my way to one of the oldest

sugarloaf lump of  rock in the middle of Germany, the Externsteine.

The Externsteine are a natural outcropping of five sandstone pillars,

the tallest of which is 37.5 m (123 ft) high and form a wall of several

hundred metres in length, in a region that is otherwise largely

devoid of rocks.

The geological formation consists of a hard, erosion-resistant sandstone, laid down during the early Cretaceous era about 120 million years ago, near the edge of a large shallow sea that covered large parts of Northern Europe at the time. About 70 million years ago, these originally horizontal layers were folded to an almost vertical position; this was followed by various forms of weathering

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8526/8680283398_7edf3074c5_z.jpg

An old mystic place. During all eras the peoles adore different lords.

When we approach the spiritual place it feels like entering a magic

circle

Hi mum,

a trip to Fritzlar with Andrea and Aura

Fritzlar is a small German town (pop. 15,000) in the Schwalm-Eder district in northern Hesse, 160 km (99 mi) north of Frankfurt, with a storied history. It can reasonably be argued that the town is the site where the Christianization of northern Germany (north and east of the Roman Limes) began and the birthplace of the German empire as a political entity

here you see the old church...very old

The St. Peter's Cathedral is one of the most beautiful Romanesque-Gothic churches in Hesse.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8280/8710225034_09e9376e74_z.jpg

The Cathedral of Fritzlar measures 43 meters (from the basement to the top). He continues to shape the cityscape of the small town in the Schwalm-Eder-Kreis (formerly Circle Fritzlar-Homberg).

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8276/8710256532_f313e9c11f_z.jpg

built and rebuilt several times, combines the Cathedral of St. Peter Roman and Gothic styles. In the oldest part of the Fritzlarer Domes are the crypts, which can also be viewed as the Cathedral, ..but not in the moment :rolleyes:

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8408/8709131559_c86f663757_z.jpg

This is the Monk Boniface he felled the oak, without being met, the expected wrath of the locals Donars and built from the wood a church that was dedicated to St. Peter. This event is considered the beginning of Christianity, not only in this area of the present diocese of Fulda.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8261/8709102177_6fe1d03cb9_z.jpg

The Town Hall in Fritzlar originated in Roman times (also called "bailiwick") and was first mentioned in documents in 1109

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8420/8709132515_61bfa37790_z.jpg

The town hall is decorated with a stone relief from the 1441 Holy St. Martin, the patron saint of Fritzlar.

Even the rest of town around the market in Fritzlar is determined by imposing half-timbered buildings

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8420/8709129521_368691ac78_z.jpg

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8552/8709128595_ac0821f006_z.jpg

The town has a medieval center ringed by a wall with numerous watch towers.

Hello mum,

I visited the biggest Lake in

Lower-Saxony, Germany the Steinhuder Meer. Striktly speaking, it

isn´t a lake, it´s a sea, because it have no water intake.

The Steinhuder Meer is so huge;  the lake is located 30 kilometres 

northwest of Hanover. It is named after the nearby village of

Steinhude. It has an area of about 30 square kilometres , making it

the largest lake of northwestern Germany, but it is very shallow,

an average depth of only 1.35 metres  and a maximum depth of

less than 3 metres . It lies within a region known as the Hanoverian

Moor Geest. :rolleyes:  enough facts ;)

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8257/8709086075_a4d07f5679_z.jpg


it have an iland, the Wilhemstein (willystone), it´s located in the

middle of the water. By nice weather we sailed with open boats to

enter the Wilhelmstein, which housed an old fort, build in the

1760th by the earl of Schaumburg-Lippe (Foamcastle-

Lippe)…hihihi….

I also visit the fort and it was a little bit spooky

inside by the casemate, where the soldiers lived. :rolleyes:

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8134/8710297844_ebffc8ec44_z.jpg

look mummy , the first german submarine called Steinhuder Hecht built 1772

The design of the engineer, military officer and professor Jacob Praetorius Chrysostom saw an oak wood construction in the form of a fish with sails and movable tail. The plan should have been put forward in 1762 to Count Wilhelm of Schaumburg-Lippe and was realized after initial rejection in 1772 on the island fortress of William Stone in a stripped-down version. It should be dipped in 1772 in twelve minutes Steinhude. But this may be questionable because of the maximum 2.9 m water depth.

Hi Mum ,

Yesterday evening we started our holydaytrip northwards…  we

started at 23h and Hostmum/dad drove throught the night so that

we awake in Denmark, just before we crossed a gigantic building:

The Store Baelt Bridge. 18km long . The Roadlevel ist 65m height

above sea level and the Pylons for the suspension bridge are with

254m the highest points of Denmark. ;)

http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3750/8816462706_169c7d30d1_z_d.jpg

After we had solid ground under our wheels we continued our way

toward Malmö/Sweden  In Koge we left the motorway to follow the

seaside Highway to Kopenhagen.

And  we learned something about a special kind of  junction:

Rotary Trafic. And one more Rotary traffic. … and an other one…..

http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3827/8805874213_11a25f2c0e_z_d.jpg

yummy

http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3672/8805872823_a359fa64a7_z_d.jpg

we left this horrible road and enterd the motorway again.

Suddenly it went dark: The motorway disapeared into a tunnel.  B)

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7384/8805869561_f5e40d0ab1_z_d.jpg

When we see the sun again there was no land behind us, we

drove the next bridge, the Oeresund Bridge: not so big as the last

but a length of 12 km, a roadlevel of 54m and Pylons of 206m are

also very impressive!!!. The next solid ground was Sweden.

http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5340/8816452500_aae3e49822_z_d.jpg

We passed Malmö where the Eurovision Song Contest  will be start

this Evening and continued our trip toward Kullaberg :rolleyes:

Later we continued our journey northward via Gothenburg and

Tollhättan to Vänern Lake.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V%C3%A4nern

We went on a rock at the coast and enjoyed the sundown when

we heard a quite scraping and little “tröööööt”s….

http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2869/8806314737_f2992596a0_z_d.jpg

We looked prying round and took notice of a little blue elefant!!  A

BLUE ELEFANT????? We are not boozed or on an trip, …..pinched me

if  I am awake :rolleyes:

http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2892/8806313071_2b368043eb_z_d.jpg

The little blue elefant came closer and and introduced himself as

Napoleon. He has lost his wind from hurry up the last time to met

us, but we were so fast riders, that it was nearly impossible for him

to close up till tonight

Hello mummy,

Next day we visit a masterpiece od engineering: ;) A part of the

Dalslandcanal in  Haverud/Sweden. Over 100 years ago they build a

couple of  canal lock and a brigde for the canal over some water

rapids. And at the same place they build a railway bridge and a

highway bridge…. great….

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8558/8864011801_25bc14a864_z_d.jpg

After gazeing  these constructions we

continued our way northward, crossed the norwegian border and

looked out to a campside for the night.

http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2815/8864673346_2652d301d6_z_d.jpg

After a great breakfast we left the campground on norwegian roads

northward. Kilometers for kilometers we followed  rivervalleys uphill,

crossed bridges with water rapids and suddenly we saw snow!!! In

the middle of May! Crazy. We drove up and down, more up as down,

stoped at nice lookout points at Rondane National Park, passed wide

fjell-areas and closely canyons.

At a break between a huge Waterfall and a Water rapid, Rocky

Racoon had the idea to take out the Gummischnulli to went

riverrafting. We were fascinated from this adventure but hostmum ( Andrea)

stopped us because we had no life jackets in case of  disaster.  :(

Next stop was Kristiansund. There we looked out for a place for the

night and enjoyed the midnightsun on the atlantic ocean(sorry not

realy, because she

dipped unter the horizon for a few hours, but the night was

constantly bright) B)

Hello mummz,

now we continued our Holiday-tour  by drove the new build Atlantic-

Highway who followed the atlanticcoast from Kristiansund westward

from island to island. Great views and crazy bridges..J. Today the

weather wasn´t so fine but we sat dry and  have good windscreen

wipers. ;)

After passing Molde and sailed with ferrys we passed Andernes

toward the Trollstiegen and Geiranger. Suddenly a boom with the

sign: “ STENGT”. What a pity!!  :mad:

The best we could do, was making pictures in front of a very special

traffic sign and returned til Andernes.

At touristinformation we get the information, the Trollstiegen will

open tomorrow morning. To waste the time, we went to the habour

to look nice boats and made a trip into the viewy Romsdal.

We gaze at some  waterfalls and rapids (Andrea still

forbid the riverrafting) :( and the Trollveggen (Troll wall) the highest

vertical cliff in Europe. At evening we campt on the way toward

Trollstiegen.

Next morning we scaled the road with lots of switchback to a level of

over 1000m above sea level. We followed the smal road covered by

clouds and suddenly we came to a canyon and looked down on an

other Fjord: Geiranger we stoped to take pictures (the lookouts from

the car is much more comfortable, warm and dry) and followed the

road with countless switchbacks  to the bottom of the fjord.

After short stop at touristinfo by reason fo closed roads we

continued our way to Sognefjord. But at first we had to cross the

sognefjell, the highest montain pass in Norway. At 1000m above

sealevel the temperature fell unter 0° and it start snowing.  :thinking:We

made a break and took pictuers with 10cm fresh-fallen snow… crazy

We passed an other ferry,

drove into a tunnel, into a rotary traffic into an other tunnel…… but

this tunnel would not end!!!! Suddenly, in the tunnel, the light turns

blue!!  We entered a big hall with a parkingplace, here in the

underground. Than it went dark and we are back in the tube again. 

Lots of kilometer later the same situation: Light turns blue, big hall,

tube again…. And the same will followed a third time. After near

20min. driving underground we saw a light at the end of this

spectaculary building and it realy was daylight. We are back on the

surface again. This was the longest highwaytunnel of the world:

24509 m long. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%C3%A6rdal_Tunnel

by the way..Andrea has claustrophobia.....she could not took a nice

picture in the tunnel , only this blurry one

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8398/8890617406_ea573900e2_z_d.jpg

After this adventure we climbed up the next smal road to stay for

the night at an other lookout point far over Aurland.

Hello mummy,

we woke up in the early morning and the sun let passing her first

beams through the clouds. We looked outside and had marvellous

glimpse to the Aurlandfjord: The peaks where covered with snow

and on the water a cruise liner passing by. Suitable for postcards.

After breakfast we started to the next stop, Flam, from where the

worldenmost steeply standard gauge railway starts their destination

to Myrdal (The Oslo-Bergen railwy). But the train was crowded with

passengers of the cruise liner, we saw this morning. :thinking:

So we changed

our plan and drove straight toward our summer cottage at

Hardangerfjord. In the afternoon we reached this lovely place and

appreciated it with a collective Boaaaah for the great view. :D

Hello mummy,

today we made a trip to the 3th largest glacier of the country. The

Folgefonna.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Folgefonna_National_Park

Normally glaciers are surrounded by cold mass of air, so he

took his head in the clouds, what a pity...  :mad:

Hello mummy,

Time to explore the surrounding area of the summer cottage.

Hostdad found an (old) topografic map with a hiking trail. With gusto

we followed the sign of the maps, but as longer the walk so obscure

was the trail and it splitted into lots of dirttrack, and they all ends in

the moor with wet and swampy underground...Andrea was not amused  ;)

This was a great luck because by break at a creek with wonderfull

clear water we took a refreshment und suddenly there stood an

other blue elefant……. he looked like Napoleon and introduced

himself as James...Napoleon invited him for a beer at our summer house ;)

Our next stop for today should be the rock Preikestolen, a Plateau

600m straight above Lysefjord

to get there required a 2 ½ hour mountian hike through a typical

norwegian Fjell-Landscape. On the verge of the rock unfortunately

Hostmum hurts by climbing a crag  :o

and we had to turn back. What a pity. :(

Hello mum,

at the weekend we made ​​a trip to Bavaria, where we have met many other Tvs.

I've looked at Lichtenfels, a lovely little town with many large baskets. ;)

http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5540/9268501326_33b88fe1b8_z_d.jpg

Lichtenfels is a town in Bavaria, Germany, capital of the district of Lichtenfels. It is situated on the upper course of the river Main (pronounced like the English word "mine"), approx. 15 km southeast of Coburg, and 30 km northeast of Bamberg, in an area called Gottesgarten am Obermain (God's garden on the upper River Main

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7360/9265722109_2d1ff7e78c_z_d.jpg

Lichtenfels is the basket-making capital of Germany and has the only college which still teaches the old craft skills. Each year at the end of September the Korbmarkt (basket market) is held when the town is filled with stalls selling baskets from many countries and one can watch many craftspeople at work. On the Market Place in front of the Town Hall you can see the World's largest gift basket.

next stop...Kronach

Kronach is a town in Oberfranken, Bavaria, Germany, located in the Frankenwald area. It is the capital of the district Kronach.
It is the birthtown of Lucas Cranach the Elder and Maximilian von Welsch, as well as Johann Kaspar Zeuss and Josef Stangl. The town is equipped with a nearly complete city-wall and Germany's biggest medieval fortress (Festung Rosenberg).
