Travelog for: Marty the Moose

Hunstanton, Norfolk, United Kingdom - 19th January 2010

By: LittleBlogFrog

Hello, Im Marty the Moose and I am currently living with my guardian in a little countryside village in Norfolk, United Kingdom.

Unfortunately the weather isnt very good here at the moment, however today we went for a little trip down to the coast at Hunstanton.

My guardian said it is also known as 'Sunny Hunny' but there wasnt too much of the sun there today and it was very cold so we bought lunch and took it back to the car to eat!  It was very peaceful and quiet though and I got to see the sea which was nice too. My guardian said she will bring me back here in Summer to spend time at the beach and on funfair rides : )

Til next time,
Marty x

London, England - 16th February 2010

By: LittleBlogFrog

Hello, Sorry for a delayed 2nd post - the weather here hasnt been ideal for voyages out recently :(  but despite that my guardian and I decided to brave the weather and visit London today.

I managed to fulfill a life mission and had a trip on London Underground from Charing Cross Station.

We stopped off at the famous Camden Market and saw some very interesting motorbike chairs....

before taking a wander around the stables market which is full of very big horse statues. They made me feel very small standing next to them..

my favourite piece to see was a handbag that looked like it had chocolate dripping down it.

On the way back to Charing Cross it got very rainy and my guardian and I got lost at Trafalgar Square!

Norfolk, United Kingdom - 18th February 2010

By: LittleBlogFrog

Today I was told that I have a nice holiday to Canada to look forward to thanks to somebody who has kindly offered to host me : )

My guardian showed me where Canada was on the globe (The purple area) and she also told me its a country where other moose live and that they are one of the native animals over there.

http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4059/4368584738_910170fc96.jpg

She let me do some research on her laptop to find out about all the different Moose and where they come from and said that different countries had their own native animals.

http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4042/4368584754_dae1087e55.jpg

This afternoon it was snowing and too cold outside so we stayed in and my guardian helped me to make a bead necklace in the colours of the Union Jack Flag so I dont get homesick while I'm away. I asked if we could make one for my first hosts TV, Pollywally, too. I will be sure to pack it with me when I leave...

http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4042/4368584748_2d218bfaa9.jpg

I will ask my guardian to let you know when I am on my way to Canada.

Til next time,
Marty x

Gayton Post Office, United Kingdom - 21st February 2010

By: LittleBlogFrog

On behalf of Marty, he wanted me to post a travelog on here as soon as he was on his way to Canada, which he currently is.

He was very excited when I dropped him off but also a bit nervous about meeting his host and making new friends - I've assured him it will be fine!

Til he arrives,

HI Mom,

I have arrived safe and soundly in Canada. When I got out of my box I meet 3 curious-looking TVs.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2721/4456676926_6ea995d5c2.jpg

I showed them the card and the postcard you sent along with me.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4066/4456680176_407a324eac.jpg

As well as the keychain which my host says thank you for that as well as the cards.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2791/4456689272_44dc7ffaa7.jpg

I also gave PollyWally the bead necklace we made. She really loves it and says thank you.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2774/4455923001_0312444417.jpg

I also met another Moose TV. His name is Munchy Moose and he's from America.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4022/4456607136_f4068aff93.jpg

I'm having lots of fun here Mom, but I still miss you.

Hi Mom,

Today we're going on a trip. My host won't say where my she says that it's not to far and we'll only be there for a weekend. So our bags are pack and we're hitting the road...
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4063/4456716450_f61dd48933.jpg


...to the airport. Here we are waiting for our flight. We're a little tried right now because our gate changed so we had to walk from one end of the terminal to another.

By: imahockeynut

And guess where we are mom? We're in Toronto right now...well the airport. When I asked if we're going to see any sites, my host said no because she's here to visit some family that lived in near Mississauga. We're waiting to be picked up by my host's Aunt and Uncle and then we're going to dinner.

Hi Mom,

Today we hung out with my host's sister's toys. We told them about Toyvoyagers and talked about traveling in general. One of them, (I think his name was Vines), expressed interest in becoming one. He said he will talk with his Mom and see if he will allow him to.

Hi Mom,

Today is Munchy Moose's and Cpl.Flapjack Jr's last day here so we all decided to go to the movies downtown.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4051/4456613604_e68d40cb9d.jpg


We decided to go see Alice in Wonderland in IMAX 3D. It was a really good movie.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4028/4456622856_b6a25a2eea.jpg

After the movie we went to a Mexican restaurant called Carlos and Pepes for the "Bon Voyage" party.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4055/4456634488_4a98bdbc35.jpg

We had "super" cheese nachos with guacamole and a Banana Daiquiri.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4065/4456645332_c5f902b977.jpg

Later we hung out at Starbucks and had a Vanilla Latte. We just relaxed and talked about tomorrow and about traveling.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4066/4455869223_7430721fac.jpg

When we got back we continued the party with some Sangria. Don't worry Mom, I didn't drink to much.

Hi Mom,

Today Munchy Moose and Cpl.Flapjack Jr are leaving. Munchy Moose is continuing his journey in Australia and Cpl.Flapjack Jr is starting off his in Austria.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2723/4460060046_9baf76b831.jpg

So we said our goodbyes and got into a group hug.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4006/4459284341_4f20706be1.jpg

PollyWally and I waved goodbye while Munchy Moose and Cpl.Flapjack Jr got into their respective envelopes.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4046/4459288183_958e627f73.jpg

I'm not that lonely though Mom. I still have PollyWally with me and we're going to have fun  :)!

Hi Mom,

Today I met a new TV, her name is Baabaa. She was a little shy at first.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4057/4462015771_1cddcaa987.jpg

But she quickly warmed up to us. I know we're going to be great friends.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4019/4462793956_b134e180c3.jpg

My host says that we're going somewhere tomorrow but it's a surprise. I wonder what it is?

Hi Mom,

Today we're going on another trip. Our bags are packed and we're ready to go.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4018/4476225423_e8e4c53558.jpg

Here we are at the train station. My host says that it's easier taking the train to where we're going then flying.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4013/4477014608_846471a57e.jpg

After waiting for a little while, we are finally on the train. The train is just leaving the station now. I'm checking out the scenery outside.

On the train, Canada - 26th March 2010

By: imahockeynut

Wow, Canada is very beautiful. My host assures me that it's even more beautiful in the summer when the flowers are in full bloom and there are leaves on the trees.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4064/4476259855_36a4e6a617.jpg

Now we're relaxing until we get to our destination. Don't want to be tired when we get there.

Ottawa, ON, Canada - 26th March 2010

By: imahockeynut

Guess where we are Mom? We're in Ottawa, the capital of Canada.

This is our cell, this is where we're going to serve our sentence ;). Just kidding, it's a hostel that used to be an old jail which closed in the 1970's.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4007/4477057346_e0f0208cff.jpg

After we dropped off our bags, we decided to get some lunch. After walking around for a bit. we decided on the Hard Rock Cafe. The food was pretty good.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2783/4476294045_232cb8b92e.jpg

We walked around a bit after lunch. Along the way we found the Notre Dame Basilica.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4026/4476307583_794961963a.jpg

Then we went to the National Gallery of Canada. We saw all sorts of different art from Canadian to European.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2730/4476943353_28eaeae54f.jpg

Later we went to the movies and decided to go see She's Outta My League. It was a cute movie. There's me enjoying a drink.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2746/4476952063_502b3a9c85.jpg

I wonder what we're going to do tomorrow?

Hi Mom,

Today we started off with Thai Express for lunch. Yum Yum!
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4059/4477735188_f5d335fda2.jpg

After lunch, we visited the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. This is the back of the monument commemorating Canadian Soldiers who fought in World War I and II, the Korean War and later wars.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4040/4476963519_a19887e1c1.jpg

Here is the front.

Here's the actually tomb.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2728/4476983389_125cd8755a.jpg

After we walked around a little bit and found a movie theatre. So we decided to go see Hot Tub Time Machine. It was a really funny movie.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2680/4476992011_93fddacb1b.jpg

For dinner, we went to an Irish Pub called D'arcy McGee's. The food here was not bad.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2708/4477000607_f96219fb48.jpg

After dinner, we went to Parliament Hill to participate in Earth Hour. We saw the lights turned off at 8:30pm. We didn't stay to long because it was really cold outside so we went back to the hostel.
