Travelog for: Sylvia

Heidelberg, Germany - 21st March 2012

By: nuriayasmin

How exciting, I'm becoming a  ToyVoyager. I wonder who will be my first host. I still need my travel tag. Mum promised she'd give it to me tomorrow.

By the way, my name has a special meaning. Mum is an Elvis fan and "Sylvia" is one of the king's songs. It was released on the "Elvis Now" album from 1972. Perhaps you'd like to listen to the song:
\"Sylvia\" - sung by Elvis

And here are the lyrics:
These long lonely evenings
Here I am on the phone
Wondering if she will call
She said she would write me
'Cause she knows I知 alone
But I hear nothing at all

I'm waiting for a word of love from Sylvia.
You think she'd never heard of love my Sylvia,
But when I知 with her Lord, I forgive her
'Cause she's more than the whole world to me
There's nothing like a word of love from Sylvia
The only one I知 thinking of is Sylvia
Feeling so sad now, I'll be so glad now
If I just had my Sylvia with me

That old weepin' willow
Seems to whisper her name
Why did she go away
The tears on my pillow
They're not hard to explain
There's nothing else I can say

I'm waiting for a word of love from Sylvia.
You think she'd never heard of love my Sylvia,
But when I知 with her Lord, I forgive her
'Cause she's more than the whole world to me
There's nothing in the world like Sylvia
The only one I知 thinking of is Sylvia
Feeling so sad now, I'll be so glad now
If I just had my Sylvia with me


As I mentioned in my profile, I like flowers very much so I asked mum to take a first photo of me with this beautiful yellow rose.

Hi there! Mum kept her promise and gave me my travel tag today. Don't I look great with it?

Before I start travelling I'd like to show you a bit of my home and my hometown. So this is a look from our balcony. The cherry tree left of me is already blossoming. Spring is such a wonderful season.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-wFKZlQ4RBjc/T2uxFI3UuII/AAAAAAAALzA/t8JWm8Vx3uc/s600/DSCF0543.JPG

This is Sammy, one of the two cats who live with us. Sammy is 14 years old and a very tall and handsome cat as you can see.

Heidelberg-Handschuhsheim, Germany - 24th March 2012

By: nuriayasmin

Today Mum visited a friend in Handschuhsheim, a suburb of Heidelberg, and we took some photos along the way. Handschuhsheim was first mentioned in the codex of the monastery of Lorsch in 765 but people had already settled there for centuries.

This is the Friedenskirche (Peace Church). It's an evangelical church which was built between 1908 and 1910.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-pW-hf24nYtM/T24GS83CrwI/AAAAAAAALz0/E5GIjP2NNqo/s512/DSCF0548.JPG

The church is situated next to the Tiefburg, a castle from the early Middle Ages which used to be surrounded by water.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-EWhxh_fw61s/T24GSx2FZGI/AAAAAAAALzc/dIkZ9HPbdAA/s564/DSCF0568.JPG

There are still a lot of old houses in Handschuhsheim and this one looks quite enchanted, doesn't it?

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-szVYRbsExGs/T24GWTuZxsI/AAAAAAAALz8/J-2RwOeHR9Q/s596/DSCF0575.JPG

Mom's friend lives in a small street like this one.

Such a warm and sunny day. Mum offered me a huge piece of icecream and I ate absolutely everything ... yummy.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-d2gTO5zYIrM/T3G7uVzLE9I/AAAAAAAAL7s/szVx8L5U-GY/s564/DSCF0602.JPG

Then she told me it's already my time to start travelling. I've got an invitation from Finland .... Wow, that's really exciting. Mum had already prepared my envelope and I showed it to the other TV's.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-g59kPvJu_8k/T3G7t1OLhjI/AAAAAAAAL7c/JuyahZi126g/s600/DSCF0591.JPG

Then each of my TV friends came to tell me good-bye. I will miss all of you and hope to see you again one day.

Jyv舖kyl, Finland - 29th March 2012

By: mmm105

Hi Mom,

It's me, Sylvia.
I arrived already in Finland. My traveltime from Germany to Finland was quite fast, don't you think?
Hi hii, it's only a good thing, because now I can start my very first visit and adventure. I just can't wait, what things I will experince here. I'm so exited!!!

Mom, just take a look the following pictures, and you can see, that I'm fine. :)

When I came out of my envelope, I saw two small creatures, a big cat, and a human, too. They all said they were waiting for me.
Human introduced herself as my hostmom. She told me that the cat might look big, but he is very kind. Two little creatures, other travelling toys, were so happy that I came there. 

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-cttNtq0A-6M/T3RgcKylDeI/AAAAAAAAGzc/RfMQlCFRnjg/s512/004.JPG

Both travelling toys gave me a warmly welcome hugs! So lovely!  :)

First was Porridge...

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-Jyk2AhTJdQ4/T3RgfSQhTJI/AAAAAAAAG0M/ICaQyOtaImg/s512/021.JPG

...And then was Luna, who is hostmom's own toy, but is at home right now

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-j_tN_4p1Rtk/T3RgepisyrI/AAAAAAAAG0A/LqBAvNCwxUQ/s512/020.JPG

I told that I have some little things, surprises, for all in my envelope. And I showed them.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-hH8anh2WLTY/T3Rgd0bhE-I/AAAAAAAAGz0/z6BqkI8JD9w/s800/019.JPG

Hostmom's cat wanted to get know me better,too. So, we said "Hello!" to each other in cats' language. :)

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-_0rJ2kfsLAA/T3Rgbi8EwnI/AAAAAAAAGzU/eCYqRTRgO-U/s640/008.JPG

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-F-qXl7QhNWo/T3RgdHStpNI/AAAAAAAAGzs/W4YKOCRUIhg/s640/012.JPG

And we all became friends!  :D

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-Cl0IpWUO8R4/T3RgeZkrfCI/AAAAAAAAGz8/cfY4ZEMO2Rw/s512/017.JPG

Then hostmom showed me from the map, where I am.

First, the map of the hole World...

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-hPzflfJpPso/T3RgpN0MiCI/AAAAAAAAG2M/8nWsDJbr0qo/s640/041.JPG

...then little closer... the Europe...

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-p6Awo6jq-Vw/T3RgpuW5xxI/AAAAAAAAG2Q/QYkmVKmQgZY/s640/042.JPG

...little more closer...

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-7G6Ait6QsmQ/T3RgqEG6SeI/AAAAAAAAG2Y/JbbGHBisiqA/s512/043.JPG

...and even more closer...

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-6tGzMIWFuDQ/T3RgrXwFibI/AAAAAAAAG2k/bDJq59IFTGo/s640/045.JPG

Mom look, I'm sitting on Finland!!!

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-engy_-A2FgY/T3RgrtzG8-I/AAAAAAAAG2o/bFCViEHreAc/s512/046.JPG

Hi mom,

Today I was outside with another ToyVoyager Porridge.
We saw this funny, but very lovely sign. Do you like it, mom?

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-kFCzUb8I2Fg/T3Wxk3vC7PI/AAAAAAAAG48/inSHWoeRidA/s512/sp%2520004.JPG

Hostmom showed some places located near her home.

This is the house were my hostmom is living. She lives on the second floor.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-PPdjIYUyve4/T3WxmO3H-SI/AAAAAAAAG5A/2WouZViJlMY/s640/sp%2520005.JPG

And this is it, too, just in different view.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-P5oYIPwMusM/T3Wxm3RXWeI/AAAAAAAAG5U/cqLRfReKBcU/s640/sp%2520007.JPG

This is just one street near her home. There's still this much snow in here.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-pQldMaoIK9E/T3WxjQO-hnI/AAAAAAAAG4s/2q8A5YhE2RE/s640/sp%2520001.JPG

There's a small lake very near of hostmom's home. It's still frozen. And in the other side of that lake there's a place for downhill skiing and ski jumping.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-zhYZhmkKiEk/T3WxnUTHQ7I/AAAAAAAAG5c/pm95DLYr4fU/s640/sp%2520008.JPG

hi hii... here I am!  :)

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-vJKvyS8B-gQ/T3WxmIu1HAI/AAAAAAAAG5M/-rFGqIGBwYA/s512/sp%2520006.JPG


But then, we all get hungry, and we decided to go back inside.
But mom, the refrigerator was totaly EMPTY. Can you believe it, mom?

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-WYfY1Jel_Ck/T3RgnqFRJGI/AAAAAAAAG18/wb5BeYSwu-Q/s512/039.JPG

What can we eat now? We don't have any food...

Well, hostmom said it's time to go shop and buy some food. So, we all went to the car, and hostmom drove to the shop.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-QH4iCwNenXY/T3RggX2PwqI/AAAAAAAAG0Y/aGXU9N3dZqI/s640/022.JPG

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-SdFTfXGxJSM/T3RggPOm5AI/AAAAAAAAG0Q/0Q3uMVDINgw/s640/023.JPG

This is the place where we are going to buy some food.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-Uqq6lBX-qso/T3RghCQU5XI/AAAAAAAAG0k/xv5G0KjPF6w/s800/027.JPG

Inside the building there's a police car, and I drive it. Cool!  B)
"Bevare all thiefs, here comes the police-Sylvia!" :D

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-gT0gL19y8mA/T3RghsVCYeI/AAAAAAAAG0w/CG4NJM_JQUA/s512/029.JPG

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-oSGQFLbB2mc/T3Rgjk49dAI/AAAAAAAAG08/8fnTsEKCKAo/s640/031.JPG

Mom, hey, MOM!!! Can you believe this? There's a big cow just next to milk products there. Wow!  :o

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-VXu3H7y7WOQ/T3RgmVIDinI/AAAAAAAAG1s/3c_khiq16UM/s512/036.JPG

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-Ur8sZVGM-uo/T3RglVHV7CI/AAAAAAAAG1c/xbeuJXqGORo/s640/034.JPG

And guess what I found, too? I found other tigers!!!  :D
It's just little shame, they were not real living ones...  :(

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-h4mwl0_7lzE/T3Rgk5rtZTI/AAAAAAAAG1Q/QMKDQQ6cErg/s640/033.JPG

After we came home from the shop, the refrigerator looks much better.  :D Now we can eat something.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-S22ySDFAwvk/T3RgoZrTyyI/AAAAAAAAG2E/awn-SgPuIMI/s512/040.JPG

Jyv舖kyl, Finland - 31st March 2012

Hello mom,

Today I had very exiting day!

Hostmom told me that today we do something very special. She showed me a book, and told me that pictures and texts in that book is a clue for what we are going to do. How exiting! I was wondering, why hostmom showed me the book of heart disease? Are we going to see a doctor? Or is hostmom sick? I asked those questions from her, and she started to smile, and said that no, she isn't sick, and we are not going to see a doctor. I was so confused... What are we going to do today? Something related to heart, but what would it be?

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-U8jANRrtfW0/T3ddJ2LJt5I/AAAAAAAAG9E/sf9ZpVfdP1g/s640/001.JPG

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-h79hlo_jejA/T3ddK4EJndI/AAAAAAAAG9Q/GlGfW8xzGTs/s640/007.JPG

Hostmom said we must eat something before doing the thing what she has planned for today.  We will need energy to keep going. And we would need that energy. So, I decided to cook porridge.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-l6yxun22diQ/T3ddOWqUgCI/AAAAAAAAG-A/uqnFJlyE5_U/s512/017.JPG

...and then I tasted it.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-yLJDCYy4jaY/T3ddQIq6VCI/AAAAAAAAG-U/vqUmdfyyzgc/s640/023.JPG

Ooooh, I'm so full!!! I ate all.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-pvq8LPTNHlI/T3ddSEnYhuI/AAAAAAAAG-w/kTuaiC81iPc/s640/025.JPG

After eating porridge, hostmom said it's time to go. We would go to the hospital. I was wondering why we are going to the centralhospital...  :o
Then hostmom told me she is a nurse in profession, and she will take me to her workplace today. How awesome is that? Wow!

This is the hospital, where my hostmom works today. It's not the main door.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-uaO9i0q94eg/T3ddTOekU0I/AAAAAAAAG_E/gvuPTaaRccs/s640/031.JPG

Now we all are ready. Hostmom has changed her clothes. Now we are going to take care of patients who has heart diseases.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-1qjMsSR1NmU/T3ddTVO8RNI/AAAAAAAAG_I/OI82YC78jeI/s512/037.JPG

How cool is that? There's some EKGs there.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-EC9tKkvfJFE/T3ddToCJFYI/AAAAAAAAG_M/v-rXs-RHzxU/s640/039.JPG

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-UntRTAUGOb0/T3ddVAqqpNI/AAAAAAAAG_g/_KVimKNN1bg/s640/042.JPG

And a stetoscope

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-F_2nemjujys/T3ddVI1dtuI/AAAAAAAAG_c/gMfWiRtzcn8/s640/043.JPG

Here is my hostmom in working. Can you see me? Just take a look hostmom's front pocket.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-z7TbhPjEYsc/T3ddWLO2n3I/AAAAAAAAG_w/oDh4sM4vqFg/s512/047.JPG

Now I'm tired. The day was long, and so exiting.

I'm going to sleep now...

See you soon, mom!

Love and kisses,
Sylvia

Mom, mom, hey mom,

Guess what I did also today?
I visited in 2 small islands!!!

And guess what? I didn't swim or fly to the island, I walked to there!!!

Hostmom was thinking, that because there's several people are skiing on the lake, the ice must be enough strong to walk. So, we walked on the ice of the lake. :) It was sunny day, but the wind was quite strong.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-F1MqFyEi5V4/T3iK3-UhRGI/AAAAAAAAHB0/NiNXcUWKOqE/s640/014.JPG

This is the first island where we are going:

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-f9qhChUgQ8g/T3iK5H2RYqI/AAAAAAAAHCM/eQGFAkdtIjg/s640/019.JPG

Now we are in the island. It's time to see landcapes and take a little brake. And just enjoy!
:D I'm in the small island!!!   :D

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-1DgDCp2kHfs/T3iK7V4jAPI/AAAAAAAAHCk/4TdAOdGplPA/s640/021.JPG

Mom, I'm here! Sitting on the end of the pier. Can you see me?
I'm just thinking that I could go to swim, if it'd be summer...

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-Sd9ah0n6EiU/T3iK7OfBoLI/AAAAAAAAHFQ/KlzO0Cqv3G8/s512/022.JPG

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-C0dvpErcuCs/T3iK7583zJI/AAAAAAAAHCw/ghfxmRrxTEk/s640/023.JPG

Mom, can you see that other small island?
Guess what? We will go there next! I can visit another small island!!!  :D

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-wavZVOVL27k/T3iK-luxL5I/AAAAAAAAHDY/Dy6sjJPV0bI/s640/027.JPG

the same small island little bit closer already.
Mom, I'm there so soon!!!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-un_zGngIrGI/T3iK-bPNXGI/AAAAAAAAHDQ/640W_MUwEZQ/s640/029.JPG

Sitting and relaxing in this second island. :)

Now it's time go back.
In this picture you can see the white house (behind those trees). There's my hostmom's home. She lives so close to this lake.

While walking on the ice I noticed this weird thing.
I went to closer to see, what it is.
My hostmom told me, that there has been a hole in the ice, and through the hole some humans are fishing.
I looked through the hole, but it was already frozen, and I didn't see any fish there.

Mom, in this picture you can see both small islands where I visited. First one was the island in right side of the photo, and second island was the smaller one in left side of the photo.

When we were back inside, hostmom showed from the map, where those islands are located.
And mom, look those small arrows, and you can see where exactly we were walking.

Hi mom,

Guess what? We got company also today! Cute ToyVoyager Tokki came here from Canada. This is also his very first journey abroud, as like mine. So we have something common. :)

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-x431rhrxdeU/T3r4wpOEqAI/AAAAAAAAHMs/k6UqeO06ZDc/s800/tokki%2520001.JPG

And here I am, giving a welcome hug for Tokki.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-K0RrfJ8EdH0/T3r4ycbNpQI/AAAAAAAAHIs/wfyUrPmINgc/s512/tokki%2520015.JPG

Today we all decided to play little in the climbing tree of hostmom's cat. It was really fun! Cat came to play with us, too.  :D

Then we all hear something weird sound from outside. We wanted to know, where that sound comes from. So, we all went to see trough the window...
...and we saw a big car, who removes snow.
Awwww, we all stared that big car.  :o  :stare:  :stare:

Oh no, hostmom's car is under the snow... We must do something about it... hmmmm... We all were thinking, how we can solve this problem.  :thinking:

We decided to go outside and clean hostmom's car out of the snow.
Here I am, cleaning the car:

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-l8nZZMRRpEY/T3r5EzED0RI/AAAAAAAAHMQ/4hN8Q6KhaQo/s640/tokki%2520050.JPG

I'm so exited about tomorrow! Hostmom told me she has something very special plans for tomorrow. What it might be? Just can't wait!  :D

Lots of love,

Harjun Paperi, Jyv舖kyl, Finland - 4th April 2012

By: mmm105

Hello mom,

I had a wonderful day! Guess what my hostmom has planned for today?
I can come with her in a postcrossing meeting. Wow, I meet new Finnish people there, and chatting with them, and offcourse write many postcards.
(Mom, keep on eye in YOUR mailbox! ;) )

The meeting was in Harjun Paperi, the wonderful little postcard shop in this town. You can see from the following pictures, that I had really good time there!  :D

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-tYlTZD1jQ6c/T3286JpD0zI/AAAAAAAAHM4/Nau8nlS1JyI/s640/001.JPG
As you can see, there's something little to eat (pizza, Karelian pies, cookies, chocolate eggs etc.)  :p

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-DwuZq8TMp04/T32857h-ODI/AAAAAAAAHMw/Hg675HNtjT0/s640/002.JPG

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-pGhk7IEiQug/T328_NU_e8I/AAAAAAAAHOA/jsNEj3mMC8c/s640/013.JPG

Here I am, eating a Karelian Pie with egg-butter. It's something really Finnish thing. It was good! :p
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-jqRO8AdtwZE/T32873N3FFI/AAAAAAAAHNQ/dbXH_YHj9Q0/s576/008.JPG

The Wikipedia tells this about Karelian pies:
Karelian pasties or Karelian pies (South Karelian dialect of Finnish: karjalanpiirakat, singular karjalanpiirakka; North Karelian dialect of Finnish: karjalanpiiraat, singular karjalanpiiras; Karelian: kalitt, singular kalittoa; Olonets Karelian: 喨painiekku) are traditional pasties from the region of Karelia. Today they are eaten throughout Finland.

The oldest traditional pasties usually had a rye crust, but the North Karelian and Ladoga Karelian variants also had wheat alongside of rye to improve the baking characteristics of the available rye breads. The common fillings of this era were barley and talkkuna. The 19th century first introduced potato and buckwheat as new fillings, and later due to trade, also rice and millet.

Nowadays in the most familiar and common recipe the pasties are made from a thin rye crust with a filling of rice. Butter, often mixed with boiled egg (egg butter or munavoi), is spread over the hot pasties before eating.



And here I am, drinking milk. :p

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-P8LHCah4-ig/T329BlJqrhI/AAAAAAAAHOU/MIB46Ju_Qp8/s512/020.JPG

Then it's time to write some postcards :)
