Travelog for: Hector

Calne, Wiltshire - 4th June 2008

By: Steve & Helly

Hi, I'm Hector.

I'm a Honeysuckle Bear - www.honeysucklebears.com - and I was hand crafted by Helly.

I want to travel the world doing and seeing and meeting all things to do with bears - picnics (my favourite), teddy bear museums and fairs, and meeting other hand made bears.

I'd also like to go to places where bears are making a difference to people, such as meeting Threadbear in South Africa. There's a new bear sanctuary being opened in Romania, that would be fun, I could go and find out all about the work they do.  Best of all I'd love to see Pandas, brown bears and polar bears in the wild.

Please get in touch if you'd like to host me. I'm off to Oksana in Russia first to meet her lovely hand made bears but then I'd love to meet you.

Lots of Beary Love and Hugs

Hector

Novosibirsk, Russia - 28th June 2008

By: Oksana

Today morning we went to the beach. In fact there is no real sea in Novosibirsk, but there is a big river Ob (it devides the city into two parts) and the Ob reservoir, which is called here the Ob sea.
We had a nice picnic there- played in the sand, sunbathed, ate many fruits and other tasty food, played in the forrest, etc.
We came home in the evening- we felt very tired but happy :)

Novosibirsk, Russia - 11th July 2008

By: Oksana

Today is our last day which we spend all together in Novosibirsk,  because tomorrow Oksana will send Mittens to Brunei, Donald to Moscow and Norma Nikkers to South Africa  to their new hosts. :( So we've decided to spend this evening at home. At first we were watching the detective story about Miss Marple by Agatha Christie.
http://s53.radikal.ru/i141/0903/85/55af9dfc80e6.jpg

Then we talked a lot with our new friends who live with Oksana.
http://i021.radikal.ru/0903/af/54fd2efc72c8.jpg

http://s48.radikal.ru/i119/0903/17/421b30a59e4b.jpg

We were reading a very interesting fairy tale by Alexander Volkov "The Magician of the emerald castle"
http://s47.radikal.ru/i115/0903/b5/b29ba3875f9a.jpg

http://s45.radikal.ru/i109/0903/ff/f11cdcb3ab7d.jpg

Looking for the countries we are going to visit in the map. Hey, we've found Brunei and South Africa! :)) It's pretty far from here...
http://s40.radikal.ru/i090/0903/5d/2d8dc37c8367.jpg

And we played the cards. It was very funy!
http://s43.radikal.ru/i102/0903/86/f45a151e7d22.jpg

We all  feel a bit sad because tomorrow morning 3 of our friends will have to leave- I will certainly miss my dear friends Donald, NormaNikkers and Mittens  :( But I hope we will meet again some day! :)
