Sülfeld, Germany - 29th October 2011

By: RikeH

Hello friends,   

Imagine this – I was lost by someone in Hamburg and found on the ground by a friendly woman - RikeH. She took me home, gave me a bath – and then I met this friendly guy – Dicker Kumpel.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011a/E_0270.jpg

He introduced me to Princess Sarah and Henrik. They are ToyVoyagers – and told me about their travels.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011a/E_0269.jpg

So I asked RikeH if I can become a ToyVoyager, too. She answered, we can give it a try – maybe someone would love to host me. Maybe YOU are the one, who would love to show me something of your hometown, home or surroundings?

We went through Sülfeld, so the people can see more of me – and I can train to sit down and wait for nice photos.

Here I am in front of the old school in Sülfeld.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011a/E_0262.jpg

This is the emblem of the village.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011a/E_0261.jpg

Here you see the pharmacy.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011a/E_0263.jpg

And this is the church - a nice building.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011a/E_0264.jpg

It is autumn here – I love the colors of the trees.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011a/E_0267.jpg

But the flowers inside were very nice, too.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011a/E_0268.jpg

Hopefully there will be someone out there, who will help me to travel – and maybe fulfill one of my lifemissions.

Yours
PieksiHH

Albstadt, Germany - 14th November 2011

By: Willy Olson

Hi Mom!

Yesterday we made an applecake. It was very delicious. I had a lot of fun.

I found a funny sign in the kitchen.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-s-33e7.jpg

Look, I mixed the dough  :) It was very exhausting.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-w-6364.jpg

http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-t-6ea9.jpg

Ms Piggy pared the apples and than we filled them with raisins. You could see, we had not enough apples.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-u-3417.jpg

Ready... oh it was soo yummi... we ate some pieces before making the pic.  ;)
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-v-c16a.jpg

Today it's sooo foggy.  :(
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-12-a5bf.jpg


Had I told you? I visited the turtle called Mr. Monk. He is cute, but he's a bit shy. He didn't talk to me so much.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-10-1c38.jpg

http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-11-19ca.jpg

Tomorrow we'll make a trip around  :D

Albstadt, Germany - 15th November 2011

By: Willy Olson

Hey Mom it's me again!

Today we drove to the doc. Ms Piggy and me waited in the car. Wooh Bentje needs 1 1/2 hours before she came back. I was glad that Ms Piggy was there too. We talked a lot.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-18-17e6.jpg

After the doc, we went into the city of Albstadt Ebingen. Here you could see me into one of the beds near the city hall.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-19-f717.jpg

Me in front of the Bürgerturm. It's really old and an emblem from Ebingen. It was build in the time of 1500.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-1a-6c83.jpg

One more pic with the Bürgerturm. It's a very cold day today. Maybe you could see the frost in the background.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-1d-642e.jpg

Behind the tree there's the city hall again. It was build in 1912/1913. The city hall has a big gable at the other side. We'll made a pic from that side in the next days.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-1e-f457.jpg

Than we went to a church. It's calles Martinskirche. The tower was build in 1670. There's a tombstone in the church from a knight called Heinrich von Ringelstein from 1413.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-1g-2838.jpg

We found a solid door at the church.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-1i-d82c.jpg

Later we drove to an other church. I think Ebingen is a really beautiful city.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-1k-b53b.jpg

But thats enough for now. I'll write some more later.
Bye for now

By: Willy Olson

Hello again!

Now I will tell you something more we did today.
First we stopped at the gas station to refuel the car. Bentje said we had to feed Erna  ;) Erna is the name of her car.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-1m-72b3.jpg

We drove to Laufen, the smal town where we live. We saw a really nice bridge and the little river Eyach. Today there's not much water in it.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-1o-093f.jpg

http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-1s-03af.jpg


I found a really big heap of leaves. Could you see me?
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-1t-ea5d.jpg

Than we had a look at the Gallus church of Laufen. It was build from 1873 to 1875. Since two years the church will be rehabilitate.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-1u-fc49.jpg

MsPiggy and me sitting in front of the little city hall from A- Laufen.

Hausen am Tann, Lochen, Germany - 20th November 2011

By: Willy Olson

Hey Mom!

It's me again!

Got to tell you a new adventure!

We drove to a mountain called Lochen. The side we climed up is the Lochenstein.

Some facts:
The Lochenstein is in the south-west of the Schwäbische Alb. It's 963m high. It's one of the impressive vantage point of this region.

We arrived at the parking place. Look at this beautiful weather.  :D Not so much fog like the last days.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-1x-a3f3.jpg

Let's go!
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-21-e2c4.jpg

Could you see the crag behind me? There we had to go to.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-22-32bb.jpg

It's a really smal way up.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-27-28dd.jpg

We found a really old tree up there.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-28-35f4.jpg

http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-29-d1fe.jpg

We sit down and had a nice view. At this table I found a lot of informations about things I could see around.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-2b-43ec.jpg

http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-2c-9778.jpg

I climbed up on the information sign.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-2d-fe9f.jpg

In the back you could see the city of Balingen.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-2f-3ef8.jpg

Than we had a little picnic.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-2g-93db.jpg

Look at this view mom! In the fog there's the black forrest.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-2h-c7e1.jpg

http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-2k-8613.jpg

http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-2m-92cc.jpg

We found an info sign with a story of the little Lochen people.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-2p-812b.jpg

If you like, you could click on the pic and read that story. I'm sorry for following hosts. We just found this in german.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/thumbs/denh-2n-98dc.jpg

This is an ohter hill which belongs to the Lochen. The Lochenhörnle, or only Hörnle. It's 956m high.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-2q-2665.jpg

On the way back to the parking place we found this nice rock.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-2t-ac62.jpg

An ohter infomap. Just click if you like to read. (Only german too)
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/thumbs/denh-2u-f899.jpg

http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-2w-ec89.jpg

We're now at the place into the left circle. The right one showes our hometown.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-2x-6974.jpg

So enough pics for now  ;)

Bye

Albstadt, Germany - 22nd November 2011

By: Willy Olson

Hey Mom!

Today I had to tell you some bad things. The last rat called AC died yesterday.  :( Well Bentje told me he was very old and had a good and long life, but I'm sad that he's gone. She came home very late in the evening. So we just made quickly a coffin for AC. It's not the best one. We went out and made a grave in the garden. Now AC is on the other side of the rainbowbridge and I guess he likes the place there.
Rest in peace AC.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/denh-2y-c9e1.jpg



Today we went into the forrest to get some branches for the Advent wreath. I think we did a god job.

Albstadt, Germany - 29th November 2011

By: Willy Olson

Hey Mom!

It's me again  :D One more update.
We made a trip to A- Ebingen and went up to the Schlossbergturm. In the past there was the castle Häringstein up on that rock. In 1889 the observation tower was build. It's 24m high. In 1960/61 the city of Ebingen made a new tower and in 1991–1993 it was rehabilitated once more.

We found lots of theese signs on the trees on our way to the tower. We could read interesting informations about the different kind of trees.
http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums/aa401/MikkaTaehti/100_2395.jpg

http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums/aa401/MikkaTaehti/100_2401.jpg

We found a little den.
http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums/aa401/MikkaTaehti/100_2402.jpg

http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums/aa401/MikkaTaehti/100_2404.jpg

We had a great view on Albstadt-Ebingen
http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums/aa401/MikkaTaehti/100_2410.jpg

Look at this great rock.  :D
http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums/aa401/MikkaTaehti/100_2411.jpg

I think I found my perfect Christmastree but Bentje told me that she woudn't be able to send this one to my next host.
http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums/aa401/MikkaTaehti/100_2413.jpg

http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums/aa401/MikkaTaehti/100_2415.jpg

We climbed up 119 stairs to the top of the tower.
http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums/aa401/MikkaTaehti/100_2420.jpg

On the top of the tower. What a great view!
http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums/aa401/MikkaTaehti/100_2421.jpg

We could see the alps of Switzerland.
http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums/aa401/MikkaTaehti/100_2423.jpg

http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums/aa401/MikkaTaehti/100_2428.jpg

http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums/aa401/MikkaTaehti/100_2429.jpg

I looked over the border of the tower. Bentje had to hold me.
http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums/aa401/MikkaTaehti/100_2431.jpg

http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums/aa401/MikkaTaehti/100_2435.jpg

At least we made a picture of us. MissPiggy, Bentje and me.

Beuron, Germany - 29th November 2011

By: Willy Olson

Hidiho!

One more of my adventures  :D
We drove the the benedictines convent of Beuron. The legend said that Graf Gerold von Bussen has plant the first convent of Beuron in the year 777 which was damaged by Hungary. The reconstruction was in 1077.

http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums/aa401/MikkaTaehti/100_2444.jpg

The footbridge. There not a lot of theese bridges in the south of Germany. It's from 1801.
http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums/aa401/MikkaTaehti/100_2450.jpg

Here you could read a bit more about the bridge and the convent. (Only in german)
http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums/aa401/MikkaTaehti/th_100_2451.jpg

http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums/aa401/MikkaTaehti/th_100_2452.jpg

Walking over the bridge
http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums/aa401/MikkaTaehti/100_2459.jpg

On the other side. Behind me you could see the river Donau. Here in Baden-Württemberg it's really smal.

Albstadt, Germany - 30th November 2011

By: Willy Olson

Hey Mom!

Bentje told me, today is the day to say Good Bye. I'm just a bit sad about that. I think we had a very good time together. But I know my adventure had to go on. I'm also thrilled about my next host. I'll travel to Bavaria.

I said also God Bye to MissPiggy. She left us yesterday.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/4ypk-3m-ec5d.jpg

But before MissPiggy jumped into her box we had a drink and eat some noodles.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/4ypk-3h-a0a0.jpg

http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/4ypk-3j-c8ff.jpg


A few mins ago... I just want to say bye to the other toys, there came an envelop. And into it?! There was a new TV. I said hello to Remy the rat.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/4ypk-3k-3def.jpg

He told me some of his adventures. It was very interesting.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/4ypk-3l-0690.jpg

But now it's time for me to say really good bye.  :(
The other toys were sad to. They gave a little present to my.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/4ypk-3n-76dc.jpg

I looked into it and guess what I found. Some sweets and a shawl.
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/4ypk-3o-d1f4.jpg

I think I look great with it. The cold winter could come  :)
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/4ypk-3p-9b86.jpg

Than I jumped into my envelop...
http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/4ypk-3q-1afa.jpg

http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/big/4ypk-3r-65de.jpg

Bye Mom and lots of hugs

PS: Hope you had great holydays!

See you in Bavaria

Landshut, Germany - 1st December 2011

By: Tinka

Hi Mum,

today I arrived in Landshut.
I heard someone talking outside my envelope. And then it was torn open:
http://img717.imageshack.us/img717/5517/pieksi1.jpg
An owl and a koala were looking at me. They helped me to get out of the envelope.
At first I was very scared of that owl, because she is sooo big.
http://img684.imageshack.us/img684/5285/pieksi2.jpg
But she told me not to be afraid... Well, I don't know...
Joey the koala gave me a big welcome-cuddle.
http://img46.imageshack.us/img46/5332/pieksi3.jpg
He said Rosalie is a very friendly owl. So I was very brave and sat next to her to take a picture. As you can see I even shared the sweets I had been given by Bentje. There was one for every one of us. Yummy, we really enjoyed them. Then I gave Bentjes postcard to my new host Martina. She liked it a lot.
http://img830.imageshack.us/img830/567/pieksi5.jpg

I'm going to sleep now. I'm so tired. Martina said we will have an exciting day tomorrow. I can go to work with her. Just imagine, she works at a kindergarten and her class is called "Igel-Gruppe" (= hedgehog group/class). :D I wonder if I will meet some other hedgehogs there...

bye for now
I love you Mum

Landshut, Germany - 2nd December 2011

By: Tinka

Hi Mum,

today I went to work with Martina. This is the classroom of the "Hedgehog-class":
http://img585.imageshack.us/img585/4843/pieksikiga3.jpg

I wasn't allowed to play with the children though, because Martina was scared I might get hurt or even lost. After the kids went home I looked around the classroom.
Look Mum, I found some other hedgehogs :-D
http://img841.imageshack.us/img841/1696/img0459jd.jpg

And there was even a very big hedgehog on the wall. Martina says the smaller hedgehogs were made by the children and that it is a birthday calender.
http://img805.imageshack.us/img805/5664/pieksikiga1.jpg

Here you can see me sitting between sheep. This has been put up for christmas and the christmas story. In the morning I heard someone read a story about the shepherd and his dog. It was very nice and the children seemed to listen carefully.

What an interesting day :-D
But now I can't wait for tomorrow. If the weather is not too bad we will go to the city to see the big church and a few fountains. Yay, fountains :-D

Love and hugs
Pieksi
