Travelog for: Rocky Raccoon

at home, Switzerland - 17th January 2013

By: Jasper

Hi all,
I'm Rocky,

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1171589_zps3357c26a.jpg

Rocky Raccoon, a cultured city raccoon.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1171590_zps752526e5.jpg

I love music, especially the Beatles, whom I owe my name by the way. After many adventure stories told by our guests, I decided to become a Toyvoyager too. So, here I am, ready to start. When I woke up this morning, I did what a raccoon must: I washed my breakfast egg.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1171591_zps4fdb4f2f.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1171592_zps2be41a51.jpg

Otherwise mommy makes it. But to make a good impression, I got it done today myself. Then I went to the balcony.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1171595_zps257d599d.jpg

Snow, lots of snow.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1171596_zps9882ee26.jpg

Brrr, cold and wet.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1171597_zpse3f44d48.jpg

Snow is not my thing. Sitting in a warm blanket,

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1171598_zps45a2a9d9.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1171599_zpsd4093c9b.jpg

and eat a muffin I like much better.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1171600_zpsf6fac034.jpg

So,  now I have to inform me what I must do to be able to travel. I'll see you later.

at home, Switzerland - 18th January 2013

By: Jasper

Hi all,
Today I had gummy bears for breakfast, which I do not have to wash.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1171593_zpse8b11915.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1171594_zps60f372fc.jpg

Is much simpler. After breakfast, I googled my name. 1'610'000 hits. I was very flattered until I noticed: not mean me. Beatles, Beatles, Beatles.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1171601_zps763e484b.jpg

I read about 999'998 entries with the realization that the Beatles wrote a song about me. How nice.
  I heard a few songs

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1171602_zps8ab79de4.jpg

and looked at pictures - Abbey Road.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1171603_zps0ad7c10b.jpg

I have run across these pedestrian crossing.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1171604_zpsa708a4b7.jpg
Maybe I'll come to London one day. We will see.
Until then, Rocky Raccoon

at home, Switzerland - 20th January 2013

By: Jasper

Hello world,
This morning I was sitting at my computer very early and informed me. My country of origin is North America.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1171607_zpsa65b8939.jpg

A long way but one day I will go there. The largest population of raccoons outside America lives in Kassel,

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1171606_zps68ba3eaf.jpg

which is in Germany. It's getting closer. Hase, she is a guest, showed me that I climb trees

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1201636_zps5d68ded9.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1201637_zps06f62ba8.jpg

and what I eat.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1201635_zps33643919.jpg

Fruits, eggs and nuts that I like. Fish, crayfish and seafood i like also. Especially Gambas al ajillo. But invertebrates such as worms, snails and beetles? Brrr, the only invertebrates that I like is the gummy bear.
Enough for now, I'll see you later
Rocky

at home, Lichtensteig, Switzerland - 20th January 2013

By: Jasper

Hi all,
Since Hase and Helga know that I want to be a Toyvoyager, I have to listen to some. I am too spoiled and untrained. Therefore, they try to make me fit. Helga torments me with push-ups

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1201623_zpsec86c39e.jpg

and other things.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1201624_zps58d49a21.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1201625_zps6e479527.jpg

Hase chases me up trees.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1171608_zpsb53316bf.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1171610_zpsb8625de8.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1201627_zps61ceb538.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1201628_zps0c191fe8.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1171609_zpsaec2764f.jpg


I'm lucky if I get out of here. And that will be very soon - I'm traveling to Barcelona. I'm so happy. Such a wonderful city and paella and gambas. Oooh, I can hardly believe it.

In seventh heaven
Rocky Raccoon

at home, Switzerland - 23rd January 2013

By: Jasper

Hello
Yesterday we had another farewell party. HelgaHH will travel back home, and I will starts my first journey. Mum baked a cake and took a group photo.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1221652_zps5705c59f.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1221653_zpse6adf38a.jpg

As long as one can show us yet, she said. Then we ate cake and potato chips and crackers.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1221667_zpsa4654b03.jpg

We drank one or another glass of wine.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1221669_zpsd2bacc84.jpg

Late at night we came upon a sentimental mood. Hase sang with fervor sad songs

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1221671_zpsdbe8027c.jpg

until mum woke up and reminded us that even more people live in this house who want to sleep now. We had a last drink and went to bed.
This morning it was time. I said goodbye to my friends with a group hug

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1221646_zps8b2e80e1.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1221647_zps64384d3a.jpg

and packed my things.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1221644_zpsefba76d9.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1221645_zps54caf597.jpg

A special hug for Helga.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1221643_zps3faa3410.jpg

Maybe I'll see you again soon.  Mum cuddled me and wished me a safe journey. Then I climbed into my envelope.

My big adventure begins.
I hope we meet again.

Hi mom!
Today is “Dijous Gras”, the first day of Carnival festivities, and here in Catalonia is so typical to eat “butifarra d’ou” (egg sausage) and “coca de llardons” (crackling pancake). Here we are eating this!!!

Hi mom!
Today is the last day of Carnival festivities and here in Catalonia this day is called “enterrament de la sardina” (burial of the sardine). About why is called this way, there are a hypothesis, among others. First of all, to bury something is a way to forget it, to take leave of it… And the hypothesis is that the back-bone of the pigs was known as “sardine” and it was buried at the end of Carnival to start the Lent.
To celebrate it, we have eaten a sardine made of bread with chocolate. It was delicious!!!!

Good morning mom.
It’s snowing. I don’t know why all are so nervous. Maybe because it’s sooooo strange, in Barcelona. As you can see, here it’s only raining, but, can you see the mountain behind me? I’m lucky that it’s only snowing in the mountains…

Barcelona, Spain - 25th February 2013

By: SiniS

Hi mom!!
Today we went out for a walk and we went to the shopping center “La Maquinista”. “La Maquinista” is situated where the metallurgic fabric “La Maquinista Terrestre i Marítima” was in the past. Here you can see us taking a rest in front of the little park of “La Maquinista”.
http://i1171.photobucket.com/albums/r545/zerosdiary/Zero/DSC04818_zpsf078328c.jpg
http://i1171.photobucket.com/albums/r545/zerosdiary/Zero/DSC04819_zpsc6ae6fb1.jpg

This is the large pond, situated in the middle of the park, named Narcís Monturiol (a Catalonian engineer, who invented the first crew submarine). It was built in order to take advantage of the two nearby water sources and it’s used to irrigate the park. Inside the pond you can see the large antique wheel that reminds us of the industrial past of the land. And the building near the pond is “Museo de La Maquinista y Macosa”, a museum which contains historical documents, plans, photographs, models and historical objects from the old factory.
http://i1171.photobucket.com/albums/r545/zerosdiary/Zero/DSC04822_zpsb75ee7b9.jpg

The shopping center!!!!
http://i1171.photobucket.com/albums/r545/zerosdiary/Rocky%20Raccoon/DSC04828_zpsea5b332d.jpg

After visit some shops, we take a rest in a lounge terrace.
http://i1171.photobucket.com/albums/r545/zerosdiary/Zero/DSC04830_zpsfe5b4a55.jpg

Can you see the big clock on the floor??? There was a projector which projected the small hands of the clock to show the hour, but it’s out of order :(
http://i1171.photobucket.com/albums/r545/zerosdiary/Rocky%20Raccoon/DSC04834_zps71e76d6b.jpg

In the first floor there are the restaurants, near another lounge terrace.
http://i1171.photobucket.com/albums/r545/zerosdiary/Zero/DSC04840_zpsc930af98.jpg

It seems like a jungle!!!
http://i1171.photobucket.com/albums/r545/zerosdiary/Zero/DSC04842_zps868a8f3f.jpg

Before come back home, we met Tom and Jerry, who drove us in their sidecar :D
http://i1171.photobucket.com/albums/r545/zerosdiary/Zero/DSC04845_zpsa679340a.jpg

We had a fun afternoon!

Gavà, Spain - 31st March 2013

By: SiniS

Hello mom!!
We spent the weekend at hostdad home, so we’re in the train to Sants, the central train station.
http://i1171.photobucket.com/albums/r545/zerosdiary/Zero/DSC04874_zps184fd62f.jpg

In Sants we took another train to Gavà. The views aren’t so nice, just buildings, roads or industrial parks…
http://i1171.photobucket.com/albums/r545/zerosdiary/Zero/DSC04876_zps92bf2054.jpg
http://i1171.photobucket.com/albums/r545/zerosdiary/Rocky%20Raccoon/DSC04882_zpsb370fa3c.jpg

Finally we were in Gavà!! This is the train station.
http://i1171.photobucket.com/albums/r545/zerosdiary/Rocky%20Raccoon/DSC04889_zps6a937c7c.jpg

We did a bit of sightseeing while we went to hostdad home. This is the church.
http://i1171.photobucket.com/albums/r545/zerosdiary/Rocky%20Raccoon/DSC04895_zps7ffe2100.jpg

And in this little square there’s a grower with some asparagus.
http://i1171.photobucket.com/albums/r545/zerosdiary/Zero/DSC04933_zps0f6100cc.jpg

We spent the afternoon at home and then we went to have supper at hamburger, in the shopping center.
http://i1171.photobucket.com/albums/r545/zerosdiary/Rocky%20Raccoon/DSC04909_zps15d9b462.jpg

Suny found a little palm tree and she wanted to climb it, just for training, because she wants a bigger one! We waited for her :)
http://i1171.photobucket.com/albums/r545/zerosdiary/Suny/DSC04911_zps2e5f2578.jpg

Then we went to the hamburger and shared a big hamburger with fries. Good appetite!!
