Orange, New South Wales, Australia - 9th April 2008

By: sararingham

Hello! My name is Roots Bear. I was rescued by AbbyB, and then I was adopted by sararingham I just arrived in Australia today, and I'm not going to have long here. Sara says there's a host lined up for me already in England! I hope I get to see London and everything there - how exciting would that be!

http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y289/saragoescrazy3/roots_andbon.jpg
When I got here I was greeted by Bon who is a toyvoyager from the Netherlands! How exciting to meet someone from so far away... I'm from far away too - but everyone knows what I mean!... I also got to meet up with Jubilee Bunny and Toothy Walrus. Jubilee will be going to India later this week so I better spend as much time as I can with her before she's off on her journey!

Anyways, I'm pretty excited to start my journey! I'll make posts again soon hopefully, and at that time, I'll probably be in England! How exciting! :-)

Al-Khabar, Saudi Arabia - 17th May 2008

By: sararingham

I'm not quite sure how to explain this but Roots Bear was on his way to the Ukraine and somehow got stopped in Saudi Arabia, and this wonderful person picked him up and let me know via email that Roots is in Saudi Arabia! He sent me a nice picture of him...

http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y289/saragoescrazy3/1705200817-22-24_0001.jpg

I'm so happy, so ecstatic to hear he's okay! He should soon be on his way to the Netherlands! *fingers crossed*

Den Bosch, The Netherlands - 27th May 2008

By: Marjolein

Hello,

I arrived in The Netherlands today! I had a great trip from Saudi Arabia. The guy who found me put me in a plastic bag so I wouldn't get wet. That was very sweet of him! Thank God he also put some holes in the bag so I could breath. When Marjolein opened the envelop Nick, LiLA Bear and Pingu where there to welcome me into The Netherlands. They wanted to know all about my journey! I've already had a bit of an aventure but I just know I will have a good time in Holland! And Marjolein said we are going on a trip to Italy in July! I can't wait!

I'll keep you posted! Roots

Eindhoven, The Netherlands - 29th May 2008

By: Marjolein

Dear mum,

I went to see the Dutch national footballteam today!! In the footballstadium of PSV Eindhoven in Eindhoven. The match was between Holland and Denmark.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3564.jpg

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3597.jpg

Before the match, there was a giant toy on the field! He had a drum with 'Dutchy' on it. Marjolein told me this is the mascotte of the Dutch team. I said he should also travel but Marjolein doubts he will fit into an envelop. She told me a little secret: there is actually in man inside that lionssuit!

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3592.jpg

But then the match began. First it was time for the national anthems. The Dutch anthem is called the 'Wilhelmus' named after Willem I, king of the Netherlands in the 16th century. The song has 15 verses but they only sing one at the footballmatches. Most of the Dutch only know this verse.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3615.jpg

That's the goalkeeper of the Netherlands, Edwin van der Sar, on the big screen.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3624.jpg

And they're off!

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3626.jpg

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3632.jpg

Do you see all the people nicely dressed in orange? Orange is the Dutch national colour. This is because their royalty's (queen Beatrix and family) are called Oranje (orange in Dutch).

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3635.jpg

Rafael van der Vaart (number 23, footballer of HSV, in Germany) took a cornerkick for Holland.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3638.jpg

And Holland scored!!

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3646.jpg

Chompers was so excited! We couldn't see anything!

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3650.jpg

But I was also partying!

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3655.jpg

So when the second half of the match began, it was 1-0 for Holland.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3671.jpg

But then Denmark got dangerous!

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3674.jpg

O no! Denmark scored!!

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3676.jpg

And that was the end of the match. The first half was very good, but the second half the Dutch team played sloppy and they let Denmark make a goal. I hope they will do better at the European Championship next month! This game was just for practice.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3679.jpg

The stadion of PSV Eindhoven is a very beautiful stadium, also on the outside. It's called 'Philips Stadion' because Philips is their sponsor. Philips is a factory that makes lamps and other electric stuff. Eindhoven is therefore also called the 'Lichtstad' translated something like The city of Light. That sounds beautiful doesn't it?

Arnhem, The Netherlands - 31st May 2008

By: Marjolein

Hi mummy!!

We went to the biggest Bingo of Holland today! There where lots of Dutch singers and Marjolein and Kasper also won something! They both won a replica of the t-shirt the Dutch national team whore during the World Championship of 1974! It was so cool!

This all happened in the footballstadium of the club Vitesse, the Gelredome, in Arnhem (or Arnheim in German). It didn't really look like a stadium, like the Philips Stadion. But that's because the Gelredome was also built for things like performances of big artists and of course superbingo's hihi.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3730.jpg

It was really big and there where about 36000 people inside!

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3682.jpg

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3683.jpg

Gerard Joling, who is a famous Dutch singer, presented it. He looks a bit weird in is golden suit but Marjolein said that's because he is gay.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3684.jpg

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3685.jpg

Jan Smit also performed. He is from Volendam and he has is own real life soap. He has been a famous singer since he was very small and he sang a song for his grandmother. Marjolein has got one cd of him and she thinks he's cute. O and she has some underpants that say: Mrs Smit, as if she is Jan's wife haha. Marjolein got them from Kasper, he is a bit weird too.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3689.jpg

Politicus Agnes Kant was also on the party. That is because the goal of the Bingo was to raise money for playgrounds for Dutch children. Agnes Kant also wants more playgrounds.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3692.jpg

And of course was Rene Froger singing on stage! He also sings in English so I could finally understand some of the songs!

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3694.jpg

This is Edsilia Rombley. She went to the Eurovision Songcontest for the Netherlands twice. She never won.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3699.jpg

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3700.jpg

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3701.jpg

Pingu helped fill in the Bingocards for Marjolein.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3703.jpg

The biggest act was Frans Bauer! All Dutch people love him because they think he is so normal. The Dutch don't really like it when people are to drama. Frans did kidnap this child on stage but she seems to enjoy herself.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3716.jpg

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3724.jpg

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3725.jpg

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3726.jpg

The Bingo was also the final for a program called 'Kinderen zingen met Sterren', which means Children sing with Stars. There where 4 teams on stage. The team that sang with the duo Nick and Simon from Volendam won.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3727.jpg

We had a great time!

Den Bosch, The Netherlands - 10th June 2008

By: Marjolein

Hi mum,

Because the Dutch footballteam played their first match for the European Cup (against Italy) yesterday (Holland won with 3-0!!) we decided to play some ToyVoyagersfootball!

I was in the team with Pingu and Nick.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3764.jpg

But then Davy attacked!

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3765.jpg

He tried to score... But Pingu got the ball!!

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3766.jpg

We turned the game around, Nick attacked Chompers! He played the ball to me, I played it back to Nick. Nick tried to score...

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3767.jpg

And he scored!!

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3768.jpg

Woohoo! My team won!! Now I can't write anymore because I have to get back to some more footballmatches!

Hugs Roots

I had already told you the Netherlands won from Italy with 3-0 yesterday, hadn't I? Marjolein bought some newspapers to show how the European Cup lives in Holland. All the newspapers are orange! :D

Rotterdam, The Netherlands - 13th June 2008

By: Marjolein

Dear mum,

On the day the Dutch footballteam plays their second match, I went to the zoo! I was in Rotterdam and the zoo is called Diergaarde Blijdorp.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3776.jpg

I went to Africa right away! Woohoo I was in Africa! Okay not really, but pretending is cool :)

I had a nice conversation with some giraffes.

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3861.jpg

Hello Giraffe!!

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3865.jpg

'What do you want? I'm eating here!'

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3862.jpg

'O, hello, how are you doing?'

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3866.jpg

'Did you want to ask us something?'

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3869.jpg

I asked them, if they ever eat grass. It looks impossible with those long necks. They showed me!

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF3867.jpg

I said: 'Thank you very much!! Bye sweet giraffes!'

But Africa wasn't the only continent shown in the zoo. Also Europe, North-America, South-America, Asia, Australia. They are still building Antartica. And they have a place called Oceanium. I will show you all the photo's!

These animals are not from Africa. They're Asian elephants. You can see because they have smaller ears and only the males have large external tusks.

By: Marjolein

Hi mum,

I ate some real Dutch food today: herring and stroopwafels. The call herring, when you eat it like this Hollandse Nieuwe. It doesn't look very yummie, but it actually was! They eat the herring not with knives and forks but they bite it out of the sky! Weird Dutch people ;)

Groningen, The Netherlands - 20th June 2008

By: Marjolein

Dear mum,

I went to Groningen with Marjolein! She celebrated her birthday there. Almost all her family and friends live her. She just moved to Den Bosch last September so she doesn't know that much people there. We went to Marjoleins parents' house. The live in a suburb of Groningen called Lewenborg. It was farmland untill about the seventies. There is still a farm and some farmland with sheeps on it now.

This is Marjoleins parents' house:

I met the cat Dribbel:

And the dog Amber:

http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c162/marjoleinaneth/DSCF4045.jpg

The other cat, Garfield, didn't want to take a photo with me! Maybe next time, because Marjolein told me we will be going back to Groningen this weekend because her father turns 50 this saturday!
