Burgkemnitz, Germany - 1st May 2012

By: MA_17

Today my brother Alex allowed me to join his bike tour with the girls before I start with my big journey.
http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m49/ma_17/Toyvoyager/RIMG1183.jpg

We went to one of the neighborhoods of my hometown.
The park in the village was really beautiful and we saw a castle! It is a manor house which was built in the style of the renaissance.
http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m49/ma_17/Toyvoyager/RIMG1189-1.jpg

Then we saw a direction sign to a mineral spring.
http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m49/ma_17/Toyvoyager/RIMG1190-1.jpg

We followed the sign and arrived at a small hut, but we couldn't see any spring.
http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m49/ma_17/Toyvoyager/RIMG1191.jpg

We went on between fields and forests and more fields... Can you see the other neighborhood in the background? Really tiny houses.
http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m49/ma_17/Toyvoyager/RIMG1198.jpg

On our way back we stopped at the lake near "Untermühle". A really peaceful place.

home, Germany - 2nd May 2012

By: MA_17

Today we did a trip with Alex' car!
http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m49/ma_17/Toyvoyager/RIMG1213.jpg

The others already knew the way. At the place where you can see the light we had to turn right.
http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m49/ma_17/Toyvoyager/RIMG1209.jpg

Turn right here!
http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m49/ma_17/Toyvoyager/RIMG1210.jpg

Then we could see the fast street!
http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m49/ma_17/Toyvoyager/RIMG1211.jpg

We entered the street and Crawfish hit the gas. She drove and drove and drove and whoooaaaa...
http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m49/ma_17/Toyvoyager/RIMG1212.jpg

...we reached the highway! You can't imagine how fast we were!

Today I left home! I'm so excited. All the others hugged me and the other leaving tvs.

Then I jumped into my envelope. The adventure can begin!

Sülfeld, Germany - 19th May 2012

By: RikeH

Hi Mum,

I arrived in Sülfeld. Dicker Kumpel is the host here – he gave me a warm welcome.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/B_0689.jpg

He introduced me to the other ToyVoyagers here.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/B_0690.jpg

I showed the things I brought with me.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/B_0691.jpg

I went outside in the garden and talked to some guys here. First I met an ostrich.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/B_0692.jpg

This guy was so funny!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/B_0693.jpg

Look –I was a stuntman!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/B_0694.jpg

These two guys told me a lot of jokes.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/B_0695.jpg

This was the king of the garden. Strange people are living here – I will have a lot of fun!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/B_0696.jpg

Yours

on the ferry to Helsinki, Germany - 24th May 2012

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

We are on our way to Finland now. RikeH was very busy the last days, so we didn’t update our travelogs, but now it will be better, we hope.

We went from Travemünde,Germany to Helsinki, Finland with the Ferry Finnlady. The weather was wonderful, but it was so stormy that RikeH decided to take only one photo of me outside. She didn’t want me to fly away.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0004.jpg

Fortunately we had a wonderful cabin with many windows. Through this one I saw the way we went.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0013.jpg

Then we all went to the window on the side of the ship. The sun was wonderful.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0020.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0021.jpg

Of course we wanted to look to the other side.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0022.jpg

Our ferry was great – look, there in front of us was a cruise ship.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0023.jpg

Our Captain did a good job, so we won the race!

Turku, Finland - 26th May 2012

By: RikeH

Hello from Finland,

We made a short walk through Turku today -  and I saw this nice church.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0063.jpg

Then we visited the archipelago. We started in a small village called Naantali and saw this nice church.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0069.jpg

Then we drove through the nice nature.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0072.jpg

We had to use some ferries – this was the biggest of all.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0075.jpg

We saw the ship of the SAR.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0081.jpg

I liked the views.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0082.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0083.jpg

On the ferry there was a flag of Finland. Of course I wanted a photo of it.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0090.jpg

The sky looked great with the clouds.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0094.jpg

In the evening we went back to Turku and saw this beautiful fin.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0097.jpg

Mum, I travel in a country outside of Germany, so please put a 1/10 into my life mission!  B)

Greetings
Mr. Stanley

Helvetinjärvi NP, Finland - 29th May 2012

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

It was time to explore the nature. We went into a national park called Helvetinjärvi. We saw this small stream.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0176.jpg

I sat on one of these big boulders.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0180.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0181.jpg

We went down to this beautiful lake and had a picnic there.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0185.jpg

This was the famous place for the national park – a small gorge.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0188.jpg

But I prefer this view!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0192.jpg

Love
Mr. Stanley

Jyväskylä, Finland - 30th May 2012

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

In the late afternoon Dicker Kumpel told me and the others that he had a surprise for us.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0255.jpg

We all were excited and we jumped into our travel bag.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0256.jpg

Look, what happened! RikeH met two Finish hosts – mmm105 and reissari – and all their TVs and TV-guests. So we had a big TV-meeting!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0258.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0257.jpg

To have a better view of us – we made smaller photos.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0262.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0261.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0260.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0259.jpg

It was great to meet so many new TVs. Hopefully I will meet some of them again on my trip around the world!

Then we had another meeting – we went to a postcrossing-meeting. You can see the postcards of the postcrossing-members. We had so much fun talking with these friendly women.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0265.jpg

I was so excited and jumped onto the cards!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0268.jpg

What a nice meeting!

Yours
Mr. Stanley

Savonlinna, Finland - 31st May 2012

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

We found a great place today – the fortress Olavinlinna. You can see it behind me.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0221.jpg

In the garden around was this funny monument.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0225.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0224.jpg

We came nearer to the fortress?

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0228.jpg

This was inside the walls – the walls were very high!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0231.jpg

Hey – this was the owner of the fortress, I guess.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0237.jpg

Then we drove about a dam with a forest. Our guidebook told us that it was one of the nicest places to visit. I didn’t like it too much. The fortress was much better!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0240.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0246.jpg

Back in the town of Savonlinna we had these two views.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0251.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0254.jpg   

It was a nice day!

Yours

Vuokatti, Finland - 2nd June 2012

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

We had a lazy day at home. Look, what we had for dinner

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0319.jpg

Then we sat in front of the fireplace and talked.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0322.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0325.jpg

I love it to look into the fire!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0329.jpg

And I want to show you the funny kind of drinks we had.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0334.jpg

Bye
Mr. Stanley

Kuusamo, Finland - 4th June 2012

By: RikeH

Hey Hey,

Today we went to another National Park - Oulanka NP – and made a walk called the Bear Loop.

We started at this suspension bridge.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0368.jpg

We saw this little boat, but we didn’t have to use it.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0372.jpg

Then it was so great – we stopped next to these rapids.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0374.jpg

We went into this old mill.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0380.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0379.jpg

We had to climb up mountains and had this great view!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0384.jpg

Later we stopped at this waterfall. It was nice to sit there.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0388.jpg

But it was even better to have a picnic in the forest!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0391.jpg

The other direction!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0394.jpg

Then we were back at the beginning – this was the view from the bridge.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0399.jpg

Yes – I am a brave mouse – I crossed this dangerous bridge!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0404.jpg

Yours

Rovaniemi, Finland - 6th June 2012

By: RikeH

Merry Christmas Mum!

The Finnish people are crazy sometimes. We arrived in our new home today. And look, what we have in front of our house – a Christmas tree!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0414.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0415.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0421.jpg

This was really strange. But RikeH told us that we are in the Santa Claus Village. Santa lives here – this is amazing!e

Maybe we will meet him tomorrow. Who knows? But first I had to show you two funny things in our room. This is the wonderful lamp!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0422.jpg

Now I believe that the Christmas Time comes nearer!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0428.jpg

We went to a zoo today – but were not able to take many nice photos, because the animals were too far away. But I had the possibility to talk with some relatives.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0433.jpg

Santa Claus Village, Finland - 7th June 2012

By: RikeH

Hello from the Santa Claus Village!

We saw these signs today – and wanted to meet Santa Claus.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0435.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0436.jpg

But can you imagine it? Santa Claus didn’t allow to make own photos – and wants to have a lot of money for the photos taken by his gnomes…

So we decided that his Santa Claus is nice, too.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0467.jpg

There were an ice bear and some gnomes next to him.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0468.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0469.jpg

There were signs showing the distance to some cities around the world.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0449.jpg

And here is Santa Claus’ Main Post Office – he has to write many letters each year.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0456.jpg

I was really in the North now.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0442.jpg

I crossed the Arctic Circle Mum – have you ever done it?

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0437.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0438.jpg

Helsinki, Finland - 8th June 2012

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

We visited Helsinki today.  Behind me you can see the cathedral.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0489.jpg

This is a Russian church – I loved the gold on the roof.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0498.jpg

Near to the water we saw this beautiful building.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0509.jpg

This is a wonderful church – inside a rock – really strange.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2012/F_0518.jpg

Love
Mr. Stanley
