Travelog for: Mr. Moose

Home, Finland - 10th July 2013

By: jinxed


I'm Mr. Moose aka Herra Hirvi.

I used to hang out on a fridge door, but it wasn't much fun - very boring actually. It was getting quite crowded, too, but I still felt a little lonely being the only moose among all those cats and other things.


So, I decided to jump down and go exploring my surroundings.

After I had wandered around for a while, I met Teddy. At first he seemd to be big and scary (Polar bears can eat a little moose like me, can't they?) but when I got to know him better, it turned out that he's a nice guy.


We sat together and shared a drink while Teddy told me about the world outside. He's seen the city center and some of the local sights and that's a lot more compared to what I've seen - the view from the fridge door was nothing special.


Listening to Teddy's stories made me want to see the world myself. At first I'll go outside and find out what's there for me to see and then I can hopefully travel to some far away places.

Near home, Finland - 15th July 2013

By: jinxed

The weather is nice, sunny and warm, so thought that it'd be time for me to go outside. At first I asked Teddy, if he wanted to come with me, but he said that he was busy with something else and he'd come out with me sometimes later. Who knows, when that "sometimes later" is, so I didn't want to wait.

When I stepped out of the door, I was a bit surprised how big and scary everything was. At that point I almost went back home, but then I remembered how dull it was only to hang out on the fridge door and that helped me to find my courage.

I didn't want to go too far from home yet and luckily I noticed a forest nearby. It seemed to be an interesting place, so that's where I went.





My little trip to the forest was very fun. I enojyed every moment and forgot to be scared. Although I think that it'd've been even more fun with Teddy, I'm still happy that jinxed was with me, I could've got lost on my own.

Home, Finland - 22nd July 2013

By: jinxed

Guess what? Now I can say goodbye to the fridge door and all those cats which are still there. I got my travel tag today and now I'm ready to see the world.


Teddy wanted to see my new tag too. I think he was a bit jealous because he doesn't have one and I'm going to travel futher away than he's ever been.


I have to admit that it's somewhat scary to travel overseas, but I'm sure I'll have fun. Hopefully I'll meet other travellers on my journey, too.


Goodbye Teddy and everyone else at home. My adventure begins.

Paderborn, Germany - 26th July 2013

By: mcdaniels

Dear mummy,
today I arrived Paderborn safely! Sitting in my envelope I heard some whispering outside that made me very curious. Crawling out of the envelope I looked into many very kind faces. Especially the ToyVoyagers Laika, Haribaer and Twixx gave me a very warm welcome.
I showed them my gifts I've brought with me and then we sat together talking about TV-life and eating the yummy liquorice  :p
And I showed my new friends the postcards: a real moose and my friend Teddy.
In a few minutes we'll eat some cake in the garden and in the evening we'll go to a Restaurant cause today it's hostdad's birthday.
I think it'll be an interesting start in Germany...
love you
Yours Mr.Moose

Hi mummy,
Happy birthday, hostdad!
Unfortunately in the afternoon it started raining so we had the birthday-cake in the kitchen and not in the garden. But nevertheless the gooseberry-cake was very yummy!
See you
yours Mr. Moose

And in the evening we went to the restaurant "Fischerhütte" on the edge of the spa forest in Bad Lippspringe.
Not only the dinner was very good but also the ambience  :)
And look whom we met in the garden...
A very varied first day in Germany! Good night, mummy!
Yours Mr. Moose

Paderborn, Germany - 27th July 2013

By: mcdaniels

Dear mum,
now it's 'Libori' in Paderborn and that means it is state of emergency  ;)
'Libori' is both a secular and a worldly festival in Paderborn with many masses in the cathedral and processions in honour of St. Liborius whose relicts were conveyed from Le Mans to Paderborn in the year 836 and are kept in a shrine in the cathedral's crypt. Every July the shrine is shown for a few days and the 'Libori' festival is celebrated for one week.
There is a big market round the cathedral and a big fairground.
Today 'Libori' has been opened and we were present! Mum, you can't imagine how many people and how many bishops I saw!
Next week we'll visit the fairground.
All the best
yours Mr. Moose

Paderborn, Germany - 27th July 2013

By: mcdaniels

In the evening we visited hostmum's parents for watching the football match Dortmund against Bayern. Hostmum and her mother  are enthusiastic Dortmund fans (Dortmund is their birthplace) and so it was a very good evening for them cause Dortmund won 4:2!
Before watching the match we visited hostgrandma's lovely garden. We discovered a small fountain, a small pond, a hotel for insects, a birdhouse, many flowers and some strange occupiers of the garden.
When it got dark hostmum showed us a very nice flower: in German 'Nachtkerze' (Oenothora biennis) that blooms in the night! Every evening some blooms open in some seconds and bloom for only one night. They looked beautiful!
Love you
yours Mr. Moose

Paderborn, Germany - 31st July 2013

By: mcdaniels

The fair was fantastic!!!
First we drove to Paderborn city by bus. The town was full of people...you can't imagine!
And then we saw the fair with lots of merry-go-rounds, ticket stalls with hundreds of plushies, strange figures, music all around...wow!
And we drove with a Ferris wheel  :D We could see the whole town, it was so great!
After all these impressions we were very hungry and so we got some chips and chocolate cherries at 'Petit Paris'...yummy!
Back home we heard somebody whispering...and saw two curious guys who has followed us from a plushie stand  ;)
Good night, mummy, it was a great day!
Yours Mr. Moose

Paderborn, Germany - 4th August 2013

By: mcdaniels

Hi mum,
today morning hostmum said 'let's go for a walk through the forest round Neuenbeken (Neuenbeken is hostmum's homevillage and belongs to Paderborn) as an alternative programme to our fair visit in the evening'.
And so we did.
We saw nice flowers, many many trees, a big thistle and a raised hide and had a great view.
And we discovered a mousehole and waited and waited but no mouse appeared.
Of course we had to take some rests, one on a bench, one on a tree stump, one in a cabin and one in a tree cave.
The weather was very good so we had a nice walk and have now energy enough for visiting the fair again  :D
Yours Mr. Moose

Dear mum,
in the evening we drove to the Libori-fair again. Cause the weather was much better than last Wednesday we went into the Ferris wheel again. The view was fantastic!
After that we had some cider, yummy!
The Libori-fair ended with a gigantic fireworks. Unfortunately you can see us only in a very shadowy way  B) but we were there and it was great!
See you
yours Mr. Moose
