By: Eustachia

Hi mommy.

Today we visited my hostmoms sister to do handicrafts  :D

Eustachia bought this things a few weeks ago but she never had the time to do it. Today she got many assistants  B) So let's start!


I chose a bag with a cat. Hahaha, funny  :p but hey... i like cats!


And i got some help from Eustachia's niece.


First i had to glue the eyes and hair at the cat-head.


Uuuhh this will be so beautiful!


Then i had to sew..


..to thread some gems..


..to fill the cats head. Hahaha, that was fun!


Hmm.. it's late and the bag is still not finished. Maybe i will finish it tomorrow. It's enough for today. Phew, this was more work than i thought. But we had fun!

See you next time... with the finished bag  ;)

Laubach-Münster, Germany - 10th May 2012

By: Eustachia

Hello mommy  :D

Today was an exciting day! Purple Tentacle invited us to learn archery...

So first we went to the fields nearby our house.


And this is our target, there in the back. It is made of straw.


Hahaha, Purple Tentacle is a very funny guy. He wants to take on the world  :p And from his point of view we need to learn how to fight. Today with bow and arrow  ;)


Cilly, Wacky-Z and me payed attention on what he said.


This is our bow. It is a horsemans bow.


Hahaha, look at him how he lift up his little arm, while talking to us  :D


And these are the arrows.


And another loooong monologue about arrows and how to use them correctly...


Then he told us, that we have to strike the target right in the middle.. Who'd have thunk?  :p



I was the first archer! Did i score?


Oh nooo, no success...  :(



But where are my arrows?


Ah, here they are!



As i arrived at the group, Wacky-Z jubilated to me. So nice!


Then i gave the bow to Wacky-Z. His shots were much better than mine.


Congrats, Wacky! That was a great job!


Cilly was the next one. She didn't scored, too. But the arrows were very close to the target.


Heey Cilly! Well done!


And now our master wanted to show us how to do that...
But he didn't scored..
Well, he shot the little shack, but not the straw target  :p


Purple Tentacle:
So my friends. As you can see, we have to practice! Then one day we score with every shot! We have to practice, practice, practice aaaand PRACTICE!


Cilly, Wacky-Z and Gypsy chorus: Yes, we will!


Hahaha, i think this is no job for a little girl like me. But, i said "yes we will!" to make Purple Tentacle happy. But don't tell him  ;)

After some more shots we enjoyed the sun..


..and relaxed a bit. Phew, archery is very exhausting!


See you soon,
Gypsy  :)

Marburg, Germany - 11th May 2012

By: Eustachia

Hello mommy!  :D

Today we did a little roadtrip with my hostmom Eustachia.

First we drove to Marburg.


And Eustachia bought some new stuff at an archery store.

Unfortunately we had no time to visit the city and take some photos. Maybe next time  ;)

Then we continued our travel to Frankenberg, and Biedenkopf...

Biedenkopf, Germany - 11th May 2012

By: Eustachia

In Biedenkopf we visited the castle.


What a beautiful view over Biedenkopf!



As you can see, the crazy Purple Tentacle was here too. And.. it's just what i expected.. he wants to force the castle  :D


To scale this castle wasn't that easy, but my purple friend was very motivated!


And so we tried to keep up with him.


Only one more step...


We just managed it! Phew.. that was hard!


Hmm, yes, now we had a better view..



But that wasn't enough for Purple Tentacle. He told us, that he wants to assault the tower too! Oh my god.. This guy is insane!  :thinking:


Here is some Information about the castle keep.


After some more steps we arrived at the top.


Woooow, this view is sooo great!


It was a bit stormy, so we have to cuddle up with everyone.


And finally Purple Tentacle wanted to capture the flag. Oh my goodness! Fortunately we could hold him back.  :thinking:


This is Biedenkopf. It looks much more beautiful from above  :p


Time to step down...


.. with Purple Tentacle as our leader  ;)


That was a funny day!

I miss you mommy and wish you a nice weekend.
Gypsy  :)

Berlin, Germany - 18th May 2012

By: MA_17

Mommy, I arrived in Berlin!
I heard some voice, then my envelope shook a lot.
When it stopped to turn I jumped out of it. I got a lovely welcome by Crawfish, DuDette (she's a mouse, too!!!) and Alex. I think they are nice guys.

Meow & purr

Berlin, Germany - 20th May 2012

By: MA_17

Hello Mommy,

I went out early in the morning, about 5.30am!
On this picture you can see the famous Ku'damm (short form of Kurfürstendamm)! It is one of the most famous avenues in Berlin. The street takes its name from the former Kurfürsten (prince-electors) of Brandenburg. This very broad, long boulevard is full of shops, houses, hotels and restaurants. In particular, many fashion designers have their shops there! The avenue with four lines of plane trees runs for 3.5 km (2.2 mi) through the western Berlin. As you can see, nobody except me was on the street! All were sleeping!

In the afternoon, when my host finished work, we visited some other nice places.
I saw the famous tv tower "Fernsehturm". It was constructed between 1965 and 1969 and with its height of 368 meters, it is the tallest structure in Germany. There is a visitor platform and a revolving restaurant in the middle of the sphere. The tower is part of the World Federation of Great Towers (WFGT). And the other building on the picture is St. Mary's Church (Marienkirche). It was first mentioned in German chronicles in 1292. It is presumed to date from earlier in the 13th century. The church was originally a Roman Catholic church, but has been a Lutheran Protestant church since the Protestant Reformation.

Then I jumped into a bus. It stopped at the Nikolaiviertel (Nikolai Quarter),  the reconstructed historical heart of the German capital.

Then we passed the main river of Berlin: Spree. In the background you can see the famous Berlin Cathedral.

I jumped out of the bus at Potsdam Square (Potsdamer Platz). It is an important public square and traffic intersection in the centre of Berlin. It is named after the city of Potsdam, some 25 km to the south west, and marks the point where the old road from Potsdam passed through the city wall of Berlin at the Potsdam Gate. After developing within the space of little over a century from an intersection of rural thoroughfares into the most bustling traffic intersection in Europe, it was totally laid waste during World War II and then left desolate during the Cold War era when the Berlin Wall bisected its former location. Since German reunification, Potsdamer Platz has been the site of major redevelopment projects. Look, the buildings are so high!

on the road, Germany - 22nd May 2012

By: MA_17


We did a road trip!

DuDette, Crawfish and I jumped into the car and whoohoooo...
We started at one of the Berlin highways.

After a while we passed the state line of Saxony-Anhalt. Sad, it's not allowed to stop next to the sign.

Then we crossed the big river Elbe. Can you see the small brown sign?

Munich seems to be so far away, about 290 miles.

Have a look to the sky! Isn't it beautiful??? All the shafts of sunlight and the clouds!

We left the highway and used a street through the forest. I'm not sure if there are any animals living. I didn't see any.

Möhlau, Germany - 23rd May 2012

By: MA_17

Hello Mommy,

we did a bike tour today to the neighbor village called Möhlau. There are lots of lakes around, like in the whole area. We stopped at the biggest one where it is also allowed to go swimming.

This is a really flat area, but look, there are also small hills. We got so much speed downhill.

It was a sporty day!

host's mom's home, Germany - 24th May 2012

By: MA_17

Hi Mum,

today when we girls relaxed in the park Alex invited us to his garden.

He showed us that there are many healthy things to eat. First we found a pieplant.

We cut one stack and brought it to our picnic place.

Alex cut the bottom. He told us that it is not eatable.

He also cut the big leaf, because we couldn't eat it, too.

Alex peeled the stack and put it around us. Crazy kitty! He cut the rest of the stack into pieces that all of us had enough to eat.

It was delicious and not as sour as we thought it could be.

Then we walked through the garden and the noses of DuDette and me found something interesting.

Crawfish and Alex opened the roof and we jumped in! Lots of fresh and tasty salad!

We took some leaves to the picnic and DuDette and I cut the salad into pieces.

We made rolls that it was easier to eat it. Delicious!

After so much food we were too tired to walk back home. So we used the car.

First we used a fast street where some chickens were watching us! Can you see them?

Then we used the freeway. Crawfish drove so fast!

Love you!

Wörlitz, Germany - 6th June 2012

By: MA_17

Hello Mommy,

today I visited the park of Wörlitz, which is a part of the Dessau-Wörlitz Garden Realm. The central Wörlitzer Park lies adjacent to the small town of Wörlitz at an anabranch of the Elbe river. It was laid out between 1769 and 1773 as one of the first English gardens on the continent. According to the ideals of Duke Leopold III the park would also serve as an educational institution in architecture, gardening and agriculture, therefore large parts were open to the public from the beginning. Most buildings were designed by Erdmannsdorff, while the gardens were laid out by Johann Friedrich Eyserbeck. The gardens are protected from floods of the Elbe river in the north by a dam which is also a belt-walk offering numerous views along the park's sight lines.
Wörlitz Palace finished in 1773, residence of Duke Leopold and his wife Louise of Brandenburg-Schwedt, was the first Neoclassical building in present-day Germany. The palace and its interior with valuable cabinets from the studio of Abraham and David Roentgen as well as a large collection of Wedgwood porcelain were publicly accessible. Louise had her private home in the adjacent Graues Haus (Grey House). At the eastern rim of the palace's garden stands the Wörlitz Synagogue built in 1790 as a rotunda modelled after the ancient "Temple of Vesta in Tivoli, Italy. The Neo-Gothic St Peter's Church in the west with its 66 m (217 ft) tall steeple was finished in 1809.
The philosophy of Jean-Jacques Rousseau and the aesthetic of Johann Joachim Winckelmann underlie the design of the park. Wörlitz Lake featured an island atop which was a model of Mount Vesuvius. The duke would stage fireworks that seemed to issue from an erupting volcano to entertain his guests. At the foot of the mountain on the island was a building intended to suggest William Hamilton's home at Pompeii.
Few years ago my host worked as a tour guide in the castle and the park.

This is the Wörlitz Palace.

This is St Peter's Church. We could see the tower 10 minutes before we arrived to that village!

This is the rock island with the volcano Vesuvius and Villa Hamilton on it.

Look how high the church is!

Oranienbaum, Germany - 7th June 2012

By: MA_17

Hello Mommy,

today I visited the area around another castle. We saw the castle from outside and went to its gardens. The Gardens had its origin in the 17th century, when the marriage of Leopold's great-grandfather Prince John George II of Anhalt-Dessau to the Dutch princess Henriette Catharina, in 1659 brought a team of engineers and architects from the Low Countries to lay out the town, the palace and a Baroque garden in the former settlement of Nischwitz, which was renamed Oranienbaum in 1673. The Dutch influence remained prevalent in the Principality of Anhalt-Dessau for many decades. Oranienbaum Palace was finished in 1683 as the summer residence of Henriette Catharina, where she retired after the death of her husband in 1693. From 1780 on Duke Leopold III had the palace and the park rebuilt in a Chinese style with several arch bridges, a tea house and a pagoda. In 1811, the orangery was built, with 175 m (574 ft) in length one of the largest in Europe, which still serves to protect a wide collection of citrus plants. Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, Princess of Orange-Nassau, opened a new gallery this year.


And there are lots of palm trees in the park.

We found a nice wagon where we could relax a little bit.

Then also found a lovely nostalgic bridge. It looks really special!

Look, the Chinese pagoda is so beautiful when the sun is shining.

We also visited the Chinese tea house. Can you see us?
