Oranienbaum, Germany - 7th June 2012

By: MA_17

Today I visited the area around a castle near my home. 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?

home, Germany - 23rd June 2012

By: MA_17

We did a road trip by car. :rolleyes:
http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m49/ma_17/Toyvoyager/RIMG1494.jpg

We stopped to have a look at these beautiful purple flowers. I really like them.
http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m49/ma_17/Toyvoyager/RIMG1493.jpg

Then we drove to the vegetable field to check out when it is time to harvest. Hmm, I think we have to wait a few more days.
http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m49/ma_17/Toyvoyager/RIMG1496.jpg

We stopped again near some flowers and took one into our car. Isn't it beautiful?
http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m49/ma_17/Toyvoyager/RIMG1498.jpg

Then we drove and drove and drove... until we arrived on a sunny place.
http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m49/ma_17/Toyvoyager/RIMG1518.jpg

We decided to do a picnic. Alex put lots of stuff to eat and drink into the trunk. Brilliant kitty!
http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m49/ma_17/Toyvoyager/RIMG1519.jpg

We enjoyed our picnic! We all got some lemonade and fruits. The mice got some cheese. We also had chicken, sausages and cake. Alex decided to drink milk instead of lemonade. ;) It was so delicious!
http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m49/ma_17/Toyvoyager/RIMG1520.jpg

When we all were full we put the leftovers back into the trunk and drove home. We used a fast street, of course! :cyclops:

Berlin, Germany - 24th June 2012

By: MA_17

Today I walked through my home city.

Here you can see the Haus der Kulturen der Welt ("House of the Cultures of the World" ). It is Germany's national centre for contemporary non-European art. It presents art exhibitions, theater and dance performances, concerts, author readings, films and academic conferences on non-European Visual Art and culture. This building is a gift from the United States, designed in 1957. John F. Kennedy spoke here during his June 1963 visit to West Berlin. To Berliners it is also known as the Schwangere Auster ("pregnant oyster" ).
http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m49/ma_17/Toyvoyager/RIMG1541.jpg

This is the Bismarck Memorial. It is a prominent memorial statue dedicated to Prince Otto von Bismarck, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Prussia and the first Chancellor of the German Empire.

Then we crawled into the envelope and left the city.

home, Germany - 29th March 2013

By: MA_17

Hello folks, I'm back!!!

During the last months I grew up and became an adult penguin.
I finally got my real adult plumage and yeah, I lost weight! ;)

What to do now?
I jumped into a train and traveled home on my own.
It is white outside. That's what a penguin likes!

http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m49/ma_17/Toyvoyager/Tv_01/RIMG1372-4_zps014c2c0b.jpg

Finally I found a station that looked like home.
i jumped out of the train and yeah, I think I'm right. Now I just have to walk....and walk..........maybe I'll arrive some day.

Argh... I forgot that penguins are not the good in walking.
I need about one week to find our house.
But now, there was another problem: BIG STAIRS!
I need a few hours, but I'm sure I managed it pretty well.
Finally in my home I was welcomed by my brother Alex!

Remscheid, Germany - 17th May 2013

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy!

I arrived in Remscheid today. I was welcomed by my new host Katja and two more ToyVoyagers, nosyblue and
Willy W. who returned from a long trip to Japan recently. We tried the delicious chocolates immediately :)

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8552/8754245513_41f669fc3e_o.jpg

The weather is rather bad here, it's foggy and not as warm as it should be in May.

http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2808/8755368016_719b016250_o.jpg

I think nobody wants to go out today to show me around, maybe tomorrow.

Bye
Sean

Remscheid, at home, Germany - 18th May 2013

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
I met some of my host's pets today, cute little furry things with sharp teeth. Four ferrets are living here, the girls Shiva, Brighty and Zaehnchen and a guy named Manfred. I found Brighty and Shiva in their favourite sleeping place in the kitchen.

http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2842/8754245823_87244d415c_o.jpg

My host told me to be careful with them as they are predators. Haha! An ice bear is a predator, but these little sleepy animals?

Bye

Remscheid, Germany - 19th May 2013

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
finally we are having fantastic weather, so we decided to take a walk to one of the forests. Although Remscheid is an industrial city, it is surrounded by lots of forests, valleys and rural areas.

First we picked up a friend who wanted to come with us, so we started our trip close to this small park just in front of the police headquarter.

http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5341/8755368228_c8edc0dab0_o.jpg

Katja told us that we would walk to a district called Reinshagen. We had to walk along the streets for some time.

http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2860/8754246085_9290c8f7fd_o.jpg

IN the background we saw the outskirts of Wuppertal and Solingen, the neighbour cities.

http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2816/8755368396_034499f834_o.jpg

http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3730/8755368498_923c0f4471_o.jpg

We left the main street than to walk through a small housing area, already close to the forest.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7451/8755368582_9a47304f82_o.jpg

http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2838/8755368684_d572d808e6_o.jpg

http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2893/8754246597_f01b8e003f_o.jpg

We rested here for a while, sitting about 1,80 m high with a great overview :)

http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5330/8755368866_85a432d769_o.jpg

http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3828/8754246789_9bc908413f_o.jpg

Hidden between trees we had a first glimpse to Muengsten Bridge, Germany's highest railway bridge.

http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2886/8754246881_9a4379a141_o.jpg

http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5454/8755369142_0669334760_o.jpg

Later we found a place with a better view to the bridge. The bridge is overspanning the valley of river Wupper, about 480 m long and 107 m high, a construction made of steel which is restored at the moment.

http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3743/8755369242_986a6c03f7_o.jpg

When we left the forest Katja showed us the railway track which is leading to the bridge.

http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5463/8755369326_1c17276fe7_o.jpg

Unfortunately we cannot cross it by train at the moment due to the repair works which will be going on until November, but we will visit the leisure park under the bridge one day.

Bye
Sean
