Garden, North East England - 2nd May 2012

By: Snamoen

My first post!  This is exciting. 

Today Mummy and me went out in the garden and she took some pictures of me.  In one of them I'm resting in the shade of the Bonzai Tree, and in the other I'm enjoying the sunshine amongst the flowers. 

Then Mummy and me went back inside, so she could take a picture of me for my profile picture.  My friend Snoopy saw what was going on and decided to join me while Mummy took pictures.  :)

I'm looking forward to seeing more places and writing more posts!

Home, North East England - 3rd May 2012

By: Snamoen

Mummy and I were going to go in to town today.  But because Mummy has hurt her shoulder, she can't drive at the minute, so instead we've been having fun at home.

Snoopy and me have been having fun playing today.  Snoopy has a fun cat stand to play on, so we were both playing on that today.  It was fun!

Hadrian's Wall, North East England - 4th May 2012

By: Snamoen

Today Mummy and I went for a walk to see Hadrian's Wall.  It was built more than 1800 years ago!  Mummy said that the Romans built it to keep the Scots out of England.  Apparently they used to fight a lot, so the Romans built a wall that went from one end of England (Newcastle) to the other end (Carlisle).  When it was built it was more than 70 miles long!

We just went to see a small part of the wall, or what's left of it.  Over the years a lot of locals took the bricks from the wall to build their own houses, until it became a National Heritage site. 

It was really cool seeing a part of it.  It's so big!  Can you see me in the second picture?  I'm there - I'm just so small!!

Home, North East England - 5th May 2012

By: Snamoen

I have some exciting news!  I will be going on my first travel in only a few days.  Not only that - but I already have plans for a second trip!  I'm very excited and can't wait!

I also have a new brother, Hamie.  Mummy rescued him from the toy orphanage today.  We're now waiting for an ID for him, and then he can start his travels as well. 

I can't wait until I start my travels next week!

Home, North East England - 8th May 2012

By: Snamoen

I was very excited when I woke up this morning - today is the day I start my first trip! 

First I wrote a short 'thank you' note to my host Shilo.
http://i1069.photobucket.com/albums/u474/Snamoen/ToyVoyagers/P10904492309x400.jpg

Then I made sure that Hamie hadn't eaten any of the sweets that I had bought Shilo as a gift.
http://i1069.photobucket.com/albums/u474/Snamoen/ToyVoyagers/P1090453400x300.jpg

It was then time to say bye to my little brother - I will miss him, but I'm looking forward to exploring and making lots of new friends.  And who knows, maybe he will meet some of the same TVs that I do!
http://i1069.photobucket.com/albums/u474/Snamoen/ToyVoyagers/P1090452300x400.jpg

And now... time for me to leave and be on my way to Germany!

Bochum, Germany - 15th May 2012

By: Shilo

Hello Mum.

Today I arrived at Bochum, Germany. Host mum took my envelope into the living room and laid it onto the table. I could hear voices from outside the envelope and was very curious who would there.  Then the envelope was opened and the first thing I could see was the friendly face from snowball. After that I could also see Freddi and Milk Chocolate.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Ankunft%20Lorca/DSCN3444600x450.jpg

They hugged me to welcome me in Germany.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Ankunft%20Lorca/DSCN3445600x450.jpg

Then I showed them the Sweets and the Card I brought with me. We decided to share the sweets later.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Ankunft%20Lorca/DSCN3454600x450.jpg

After that we took a group picture together.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Ankunft%20Lorca/DSCN3449600x450.jpg

I think I will have a lot of fun together with my new Friends here. I write again the next day, but now I am a little bit tired from my long trip.

Bochum, Germany - 17th May 2012

By: Shilo

Hi Mum.

Today the weather was so good, that Snowball went with us to the Kemnader Lake, to play miniature golf.

The club was is really heavy, but I am strong. So I made it to hit the ball.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Minigolf%20und%20Spieleabend/DSCN3461600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Minigolf%20und%20Spieleabend/DSCN3462450x600.jpg

I hope the ball will roll into the hole

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Minigolf%20und%20Spieleabend/DSCN3457600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Minigolf%20und%20Spieleabend/DSCN3458600x450.jpg

Here the ball had to roll around the curve

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Minigolf%20und%20Spieleabend/DSCN3459600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Minigolf%20und%20Spieleabend/DSCN3460600x450.jpg

The different obstacles were funny and it made a lot of fun to play on them.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Minigolf%20und%20Spieleabend/DSCN3465600x450.jpg

In the evening we played a game named Talisman. It is a very easy game, because you only have to roll a dice and do what was standing onto the board.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Minigolf%20und%20Spieleabend/DSCN3493600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Minigolf%20und%20Spieleabend/DSCN3472600x450.jpg

This card shows the others if your character is good or bad

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Minigolf%20und%20Spieleabend/DSCN3474600x450.jpg

When you have bad luck, your character could turn into a frog. I like these frogs, they look funny.  ;)

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Minigolf%20und%20Spieleabend/DSCN3475600x450.jpg

I play a priest

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Minigolf%20und%20Spieleabend/DSCN3479600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Minigolf%20und%20Spieleabend/DSCN3481600x450.jpg

Yeah I’ve won the game. I am so happy.  :D

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Minigolf%20und%20Spieleabend/DSCN3492600x450.jpg

Now it is time, to go to bed.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Minigolf%20und%20Spieleabend/DSCN3495600x450.jpg

Good night Mum

Gelsenkirchen, Germany - 19th May 2012

By: Shilo

Good morning Mum!

Today Snowball went with us to Gelsenkirchen, to visit the Zoom. The Zoom is a giant zoo with a lot of interesting animals.

When we entered the zoo, we had to choose which way to go first. We could choose between the Africa world, the Asian world and the Canadian world. We decided to visit the Asian world first.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3776450x600.jpg

Here we saw the camels. Can you see the white one?

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3516600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3515600x450.jpg

These turtles were really cute

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3537600x450.jpg

Here we are playing in is a small hut, that was built on the water in front of the orangutan compound.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3500600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3501600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3502450x600.jpg

These monkeys could climb very well. It made fun watching them

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3566600x450.jpg

This is a wonderful old hand truck

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3508600x450.jpg

We took a break before we went to the African world

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3504600x450.jpg

This gorilla is sitting in front of the entrance to the African world.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3774600x450.jpg

Mum I saw giant cows. They were called watusi cows. Even the baby is bigger than me. :)

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3573600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3578600x450.jpg

These hedgehogs look a little bit dangerous. They had really long stings

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3608600x450.jpg

Wow the throat of these giraffe is so long.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3636600x450.jpg

These are funny birds, but I don’t know their name.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3611600x450.jpg

Here you can see two African huts. Sadly we couldn’t go inside

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3568600x450.jpg

This is the baboon compound. We could see a lot of baby’s here.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3659600x450.jpg

While all the other suricates were sleeping, this one was watching over them

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3674600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3677600x450.jpg

This monkey had a very colorful face

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3699600x450.jpg

These lemurs were really cool. They were running around on a small island here. I tried to touch them, but they were to fast.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3707600x450.jpg

Before we went on to the Canadian world, we took another short break

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3655450x600.jpg

Now we are entering Alaska

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3779600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3725600x450.jpg

Here you could see an old school bus that was standing around here.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3752450x600.jpg

Oh we have to be careful, because of the polar bears :)

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3764600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3767600x450.jpg

We meet a really friendly bear here and took a photo with him

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3769450x600.jpg

Wow reindeers, didn’t they help Santa Clause to bring the Christmas presents? :)

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3756600x450.jpg

Milk Chocolate and I were playing around in a small wood hut.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Zoom/DSCN3724600x450.jpg

It was a wonderful day and we had a lot of fun.

See you soon

Love you
Yours Lorca

Bochum, Germany - 23rd May 2012

By: Shilo

Hello Mum!

Today a package arrived. Shilo brought it to us into the living room. We were very curious who will be inside.
I took a scissor to open it. When the box was opened, we saw a little rabbit. His name is Hoppsi and he is coming from Berlin.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Hoppsi%20und%20Hase%20und%20Igel/DSCN3781600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Hoppsi%20und%20Hase%20und%20Igel/DSCN3783600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Hoppsi%20und%20Hase%20und%20Igel/DSCN3785600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Hoppsi%20und%20Hase%20und%20Igel/DSCN3786600x450.jpg

We made a poster to welcome him here in Bochum.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Hoppsi%20und%20Hase%20und%20Igel/DSCN3789600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Hoppsi%20und%20Hase%20und%20Igel/DSCN3790600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Hoppsi%20und%20Hase%20und%20Igel/DSCN3791600x450.jpg

Hoppsi brought a suitcase with him and we were really curious what was inside, so he showed us.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Hoppsi%20und%20Hase%20und%20Igel/DSCN3794600x450.jpg

After that Shilo brought an interesting looking plushy ball to us.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Hoppsi%20und%20Hase%20und%20Igel/DSCN3796600x450.jpg

We were wondering what it will be, and when Hoppsi touched it….

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Hoppsi%20und%20Hase%20und%20Igel/DSCN3799600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Hoppsi%20und%20Hase%20und%20Igel/DSCN3798600x450.jpg

It opens and we could see a cute little hedgehog

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Hoppsi%20und%20Hase%20und%20Igel/DSCN3800600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Hoppsi%20und%20Hase%20und%20Igel/DSCN3801600x450.jpg

His name is Knöpfchen and soon he will be a TV too.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Hoppsi%20und%20Hase%20und%20Igel/DSCN3802600x450.jpg

Now that we were all together, we took a group picture.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Hoppsi%20und%20Hase%20und%20Igel/DSCN3803600x450.jpg

After that Snowball took out a game called “rabbit and hedgehog”. Because we were two hedgehogs and one rabbit, she thought it could be fun to play it.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Hoppsi%20und%20Hase%20und%20Igel/DSCN3921600x450.jpg

First we had to arrange the game

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Hoppsi%20und%20Hase%20und%20Igel/DSCN3879450x600.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Hoppsi%20und%20Hase%20und%20Igel/DSCN3881450x600.jpg

Knöpfchen was the one who started the game

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Hoppsi%20und%20Hase%20und%20Igel/DSCN3883600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Hoppsi%20und%20Hase%20und%20Igel/DSCN3882600x450.jpg

When it was my turn I gave 28 carrots, so I could go 7 fields

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Hoppsi%20und%20Hase%20und%20Igel/DSCN3891600x450.jpg

At the moment I am on the third place

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Hoppsi%20und%20Hase%20und%20Igel/DSCN3898600x450.jpg

Now I had the chance to give away ten carrots

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Hoppsi%20und%20Hase%20und%20Igel/DSCN3909600x450.jpg

Oh yeah I had won the game. :)

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Hoppsi%20und%20Hase%20und%20Igel/DSCN3912600x450.jpg

It made so much fun playing the game.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Hoppsi%20und%20Hase%20und%20Igel/DSCN3920600x450.jpg

See you soon

Witten, Germany - 26th May 2012

By: Shilo

Hello Mum!

Today we went to friends from my host parents. They also joint Toyvoyagers and we wanted to meet their TVs and watch the Eurovision Song contest together.
We meet Imodra Dragon, her tree kids Ranja, Spikey and Little, Cosy and Zeitgeist.
Here you could see a group picture from us all together.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Grand%20Prix%202012/DSCN3822450x600.jpg

Before the Song Contest started, we made some flags for all the countries that were participating in the contest.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Grand%20Prix%202012/DSCN3807600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Grand%20Prix%202012/DSCN3813600x450.jpg

When we were finished, we all sat down to watch the contest.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Grand%20Prix%202012/DSCN3833600x450.jpg

Of course I am for the Candidate from the UK

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Grand%20Prix%202012/DSCN3843600x450.jpg

We made our own ranking for the countries. At the moment I think the Swedish candidate was the best.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Grand%20Prix%202012/DSCN3825450x600.jpg

Look I had my own hot dog, while we watched the contest. It was really yummy

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Grand%20Prix%202012/img2450x600.jpg

The Swedish candidate won the contest and the candidate from the UK only made the 25th place

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Grand%20Prix%202012/DSCN3863600x450.jpg

It was a funny evening, especially the meeting with the other TVs.

Movie Park, Bottrop, Germany - 28th May 2012

By: Shilo

Hi Mum!

Today was very exciting, because we went to the Movie Park in Bottrop. It is a very cool amusement park. 
Here I am in front of the entrance.

From the top of the Ferris wheel you could see the complete park. It is a great view.

Everywhere on the streets we saw cool cars. Some of them were really old and others looked like they came right out of an action movie.

It was so hot today, that we made a short break and bought a slush. It was really tasty.

The best rollercoaster in the park is the “Van Helsings Factory rollercoaster” Everything is dark while you ride on it.

I liked the “Avatar Air glider”. You could lay there and relax while you fly around

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Moviepark/DSCN3959600x450.jpg

From here I had a great view over the Santa Monica Pier

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Moviepark/DSCN4045600x450.jpg

Before we went home, we watched another Show called “Back to the movies”. At this show they played a lot of cool film themes and danced to them.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Moviepark/DSCN4032600x450.jpg

It was a great day. And Shilo told us, that when the weather is good, we will visit the “Heidepark” in Soltau in two weeks. I hope we could get there.

See you soon
Yours Lorca

Köln, Germany - 3rd June 2012

By: Shilo

Good morning Mum!

Oh mum, today was a great day. Shilo took us to Cologne to visit the Chocolate Museum. And inside the museum is a chocolate factory.

First we went into the tropic house. There I found a coffee plant, but it has no fruits at the moment.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Chocomuseum/DSCN4067450x600.jpg

Here we could see the different ingredients from chocolate

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Chocomuseum/DSCN4092600x450.jpg

Then we went into the section with the chocolate factory.
In the Cocoa mill the pre-crushed cocoa kernels were milled and trough the frictional heat the cocoa butter melts and the cocoa mass leaves the mill in a liquid state.
This is a giant mixer. Chocolate essentially consists of cocoa paste, cocoa butter, sugar, milk or cream powder, and flavourings such as vanilla. All components were filled into the mixer and thoroughly blended.  After that the paste was lead to the rolling mill.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Chocomuseum/DSCN4152600x450.jpg

The luke-warm chocolate paste is passed into the preheated moulds. The moulds then pass over a vibrating table so that the chocolate paste is evently distributed and any air bubbles can escape. When the chocolate was cooled down this crane took it, so it could be wrapped up. This chocolate was given as a gift for every visitor at the entrance.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Chocomuseum/DSCN4121600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Chocomuseum/DSCN4122600x450.jpg

This is a giant chocolate fountain. It looks so yummy and I hope I can taste a little bit of this chocolate.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Chocomuseum/DSCN4131600x450.jpg

Oh great, host dad was so nice and shared his chocolate with me

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Chocomuseum/DSCN4155600x450.jpg

Look mum; here you could see how different chocolate sculptures were made out of different shapes.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Chocomuseum/DSCN4180600x450.jpg

The best thing in the factory beside the chocolate fountain is that you could design your own chocolate. You could choose which kind of chocolate you want and up to 4 ingredients which came into it. We choose white chocolate with cranberries, almond and crisps.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Chocomuseum/DSCN4185450x600.jpg

Here we could see how the self-designed chocolate was made.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Chocomuseum/DSCN4292600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Chocomuseum/DSCN4195600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Chocomuseum/DSCN4196600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Chocomuseum/DSCN4197600x450.jpg

After that we needed a little break

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Chocomuseum/DSCN4259600x450.jpg

Wow this is the in Germany very famous Milka cow

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Chocomuseum/DSCN4253600x450.jpg

Here we could see how the packaging of some chocolate products changed through the years

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Chocomuseum/DSCN4248450x600.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Chocomuseum/DSCN4249600x450.jpg

I couldn’t imagine how long it will take to eat this huge chocolate ball

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Chocomuseum/DSCN4264600x450.jpg

On our way back to the factory we saw some old commercials

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Chocomuseum/DSCN4283450x600.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Chocomuseum/DSCN4284600x450.jpg

Great we got our self-made chocolate. It looks really yummy.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Chocomuseum/DSCN4300600x450.jpg

It was a wonderful day. We had so much fun and we learned a lot about the history of chocolate and how it was made.

Love you Mum
Lorca

Bochum, Germany - 6th June 2012

By: Shilo

Hey Mum.

Today we bought a lot of strawberries for us. It was a giant bowl.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Erdbeeren/DSCN4398600x450.jpg

Hmm they smelled very good

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Erdbeeren/DSCN4400600x450.jpg

And they tasted even better :)

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Erdbeeren/DSCN4405600x450.jpg

After so many strawberries our bellies were so full

Heidepark, Soltau, Germany - 7th June 2012

By: Shilo

Hey Mum,

I am very happy, because today we went to Soltau to visit the Heidepark.
When we stood up in the morning we weren’t sure if the weather would be good, but we were so excited that we started our journey anyway.

After three hours in the car we are finally at the entrance of the park. I am so happy that we are here now and the weather looks good.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Heidepark/DSCN4394600x450.jpg

First we went on this small Ferris wheel, to have a look over the western land

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Heidepark/DSCN4384600x450.jpg

From so high above I found this cute vultures

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Heidepark/DSCN4386600x450.jpg

Behind me you could see the roller coaster Big Loop. First I was a little bit scared because of the two loops, but then I had a lot of fun riding on it.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Heidepark/DSCN4314600x450.jpg

After the ride we went on the Panorama tower. From so high above we had a great view over the whole park.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Heidepark/DSCN4334600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Heidepark/DSCN4352600x450.jpg

This roller coaster is called Colossos. It is the biggest wood coaster in the world. Host dad wanted to have a ride on it, but we were too scared of the height.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Heidepark/DSCN4327600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Heidepark/DSCN4326600x450.jpg

We took a little break on this cool stone turtles in front of the Limit Roller coaster. While we sat here and enjoyed the sun, we were visited by a goose and here kids.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Heidepark/DSCN4359450x600.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Heidepark/DSCN4361600x450.jpg

This free-fall tower is called scream. Host dad went on it, but for me it was too high. I went on this free-fall tower called screamie. It is the small brother of scream.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Heidepark/DSCN4371450x600.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Heidepark/DSCN4373450x600.jpg

Next to screamie I saw this cool looking tower.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Heidepark/DSCN4372450x600.jpg

Riding this water slide made a lot of fun.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Heidepark/DSCN4387600x450.jpg

Now the park is closing and we were driving home. The day was really great, I love amusement parks.

Bochum, Germany - 17th June 2012

By: Shilo

Good Morning Mum.

Today Shilo told me, that I will travel on to my next host the next days. Because of that Snowball had the idea to have a Tea party before I leave. We planned to make a cake for the party.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Backen%20und%20Abschied%20Lorca/DSCN4414600x450.jpg

Before we started to bake the cake, we played around with the scale.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Backen%20und%20Abschied%20Lorca/DSCN4463600x450.jpg
