Remscheid, Germany - 27th May 2014

By: olgamaus

Hi Mum,

I arrived at my first host's home! I was welcomed by SunnyHH and host Katja. They were happy that I brought delicious caramel chocolate with me.

When Katja came home from work in the early evening she took me to the window to show me the ugly weather outside.

https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3711/14295858542_e73684dfe4_o.jpg

There is a small park just in front of the dwellings.

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2930/14111177340_212f7ca061_o.jpg

These are the pets, curious and cheeky little furry things. Three ferret ladies are living here. They found my envelope and decided that it was their new toy. They had a lot of fun carrying the envelope around and crawling into it.

https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5540/14111270437_8912b7b92f_o.jpg

I think I'll have a lot of fun here. No cats, but at least there are other furry friends to play with  :D

Bye

Remscheid, Germany - 29th May 2014

By: olgamaus

Hi Mum,
although the weather is still bad we took a walk in the late morning (we are having a holiday here in Germany). Katja picked up a friend and we went to the "Route of Tools", a former railway track which was built to a lane for pedestrians and cyclists, following the route of the freight trains from the district Hasten to the central station. This lane is about 4,8 km long. Its name refers to the well known tool producing industry of Remscheid, a lot of companies donated money to build this lane. We  started our trip in Hasten, one of several historic districts of Remscheid.

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2933/14111178420_915fc7efec_o.jpg

You can find a lot of interesting things along the route, also some art work. Pictures like these were created by an artist from Remscheid, Gerd Arntz (1900 - 1988), inventor of the nowadays known modern pictograms.

https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3738/14294469221_e6bde7c66a_o.jpg

You can find pictograms painted to the ground and also distance data. This one says that you have to walk four kilometres to the station, the other described places are districts of Remscheid.

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2912/14274684816_d1af34f62f_o.jpg

Next I found those "stamped" prints of tools on the tarmac.

https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3776/14317991883_b29037075f_o.jpg

This house is typical for this region, covered with slate and having green shutters. You can also often find timber-framed houses.

https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5544/14297261104_433f7cf2df_o.jpg

Elderberry is blooming now, there is the special scent of the elderflowers in the air.

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2937/14295860882_b2900c2096_o.jpg

https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5075/14294470461_9750b8ed9e_o.jpg

More patterns on the ground, wrenches this time.

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2914/14111132859_612bef9034_o.jpg

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2936/14111272357_24670030b9_o.jpg

Here are some signs showing logos of the sponsoring companies ...

https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3741/14111175538_0318b72755_o.jpg

... and one showing the coat of arms of Remscheid.

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2905/14274686406_22fba9d06d_o.jpg

Have a look at the pedestrian light - this green man was used in the former German Democratic Republic. This traffic light is the only one in Remscheid showing this special little man.

[img]in Remscheid[/img]https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5493/14111175888_9ccc983168_o.jpg

Katja told me that there more and more industrial complexes the closer we came to the station. This one was the slaughterhouse once, now the whole complex is under monument protection.

https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3713/14274686856_171e12ce21_o.jpg

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2910/14297827835_ceeb1c2ca9_o.jpg

Here you can find a resting area which benches.

https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5510/14111134269_84f2d758d9_o.jpg

Soon we reached the station (not a spectecular sight ;) ). We had to walk uphill for some time to get to the city centre to walk home.

This is a new bridge, connecting the station area with the city.

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2937/14111177028_3287d700e4_o.jpg

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2922/14297828385_ee0b3f1c1e_o.jpg

https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3826/14111177458_f7d3047276_o.jpg

Large parts of the city centre of Remscheid were destroyed in World War II, but there are still many lovely old houses, usually built in late 19th and early 20th century.

https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3735/14294472771_aba9830cdf_o.jpg

https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3727/14274688346_293b6b000b_o.jpg

This is the local court, Katja told me.

https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5238/14274688626_771b9be5d6_o.jpg

https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3788/14274688926_d34580827c_o.jpg

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2926/14111183110_79f17a2de2_o.jpg

From we had to walk just a few minutes to get home. As it began to rain again I disappeared into Katja's bag :)

Bye for today
MrBear

Wuppertal, Germany - 30th May 2014

By: olgamaus

Hi Mommy,

today Katja took me and SunnyHH with her in the morning. We had to spend the day at her work place in a law firm in Wuppertal-Vohwinkel and at closing time we went to Barmen to meet a friend.l We walked along another former railway track there, the "Nordbahntrasse". Wuppertal is located at the valley of river Wupper and this track was connecting the Northern districts.

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2930/14132928518_21904b4a22_o.jpg

There still construction works going on, partly the track is still closed.

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2915/14132947789_2db4b8c948_o.jpg

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2917/14296443176_d96fe5d278_o.jpg

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2934/14317779832_65581f37d5_o.jpg

Most of the railway tracks were removed, one stayed for handcar trips.

https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3793/14317780092_e14620361f_o.jpg

The next "station" ...

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2919/14132978400_ed7a2d0989_o.jpg

We found fondly created gardens along the route.

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2897/14339782483_b8a1eb0616_o.jpg

What a funny flower pot!

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2929/14296444206_464171aa0d_o.jpg

This seems to be a handcar for teddy bears :D

https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5489/14319594875_7e9b7e69d5_o.jpg

In a tunnel we found gorgeous graffito.

https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5569/14317781062_98c4cc4149_o.jpg

https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5587/14296444866_048f6b3f05_o.jpg

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2909/14132949879_19e3e29582_o.jpg

We reached a very special bridge than - the Lego-Bridge
. Katja promised that we would visit it on street level when we will visit the Botanical garden next time.

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2931/14317781582_5b3eb6d9d2_o.jpg

Can you see the green hill in the background? This is "Hardt" with the Botanical garden. Katja loves this place, so we surely will visit it one day :)

https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5316/14132931198_1acd443bf5_o.jpg

We walked and walked ...

Inside a tunnel ... whoooo - blue light!

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2896/14296916496_75ea0a8a89.jpg

https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5476/14339784493_db50c50aae_o.jpg

Look at all those pretty houses.

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2905/14316258491_be80896ea1_o.jpg

We reached another bridge than. The other bridge you can see in the photo is the A46 motorway.

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2904/14296446536_27a75ea6ec_o.jpg

https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3793/14316259031_801300fabe_o.jpg

Graffito everywhere.

https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3793/14132951459_8389b478ce_o.jpg

You can also find historic factory buildings along the track.

https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5484/14132981380_19b6692242_o.jpg

Here we had to leave the Nordbahntrasse. Beyond this former station it is not finished yet.

https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3791/14316259501_9098367932_o.jpg

We decided to walk downwards to the Schwebebahn to get back to the car we had left in Barmen. We walked through a district with extremely lovely houses.

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2934/14319597505_37a527abe4_o.jpg

https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5528/14132952219_f3a3b9f0e1_o.jpg

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2925/14132933078_cbc447874f_o.jpg

Wuppetal is well known for its suspension railway, the "Schwebebahn".It is built along river Wupper, following it most of the time. It is crossing several streets, even the motorway A46. The trains are travelling at a level of about 8 m above the streets and about 10 - 12 m above river Wupper. The whole track is almost 13 km long with 20 stations along the route. This is the station "Robert-Daum-Platz" in Wuppertal-Elberfeld.

https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3791/14132933378_a2ed84efd4_o.jpg

Inside the station ...

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2925/14339786713_12d7cd7a7a_o.jpg

https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5275/14319598635_cbc74865c7_o.jpg

A train came in onto the opposite track.

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2931/14317784712_9129203954_o.jpg

From here we went to Barmen where we found the car soon.

Wuppertal, Dortmund, Germany - 30th June 2014

By: olgamaus

Hi Mommy,

since I would have too many pictures to upload since this website was closed, I decided to show you some of my adventures in each month.

On June 6th I visited Wuppertal , the Botanical Garden with its greenhouses, Elise Tower, flower beds and the Hardt Park.

http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5235/14373141965_53f406a8db_z.jpg

https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3915/14373143555_3e7d6babe4_z.jpg

Next we visited the famous nearby Lego Bridge. You can read more about it here.

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2923/14350053826_13f058acd7_z.jpg

https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3866/14186508189_5d1812781d_z.jpg

On June 7th we met friends in Dortmund:

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2923/14393322523_0c4d133684_z.jpg

First we had lunch.

https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3874/14186699137_c45198ea8f_z.jpg

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2916/14371838592_992d3f1163_z.jpg

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2896/14369822031_eced457ded_z.jpg

After a short trip though the city centre we went to Romberg Park, a really lovely place in this crowded city.

https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3860/14371688882_e86c058814_z.jpg

A terrifiying creature :)

https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2913/14186707897_b5bd5981ef_z.jpg

This is the whole ToyVoyagers gang :)

https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3847/14186518869_774cacf726_z.jpg

On June 11th we celebrated SunnyHH's birthday. The party was  taking place in Strunki's garden. We had a great meal with lots of delicacies like carrot torte and carrot soup.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7528/16165466795_6c7eaf2b40_z.jpg

https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8634/15545696043_6b4083f9f2_z.jpg

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7491/15978158700_4bce4af850_z.jpg

We visited Ohligser Heide in Solingen once, a moorland landscape. Solingen is one of Remscheid's neighbour cities.

https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8662/16246193302_2ecc776671_z.jpg

https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7517/16060897099_3592bf52ae_z.jpg

We spent most of the month searching for an apartment in Wupertal.
On June 28th a fantastic event was taking place in Wuppertal: Der Lange Tisch. This event is celebrated every five years.

https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8591/16245179381_f3042d7fa5_z.jpg

https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7517/16061185867_eed5e3bf38_z.jpg

We took a short walk along river Wupper where Katja showed us some artwork "people".

https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8635/16245181211_1b8c83eab3_z.jpg

I also saw the famous "Schwebebahn", a suspension railway. I'll tell you more about it later :)

https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7480/15624618864_9c2a39cf86_z.jpg

The weather became bad then.

https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7580/16246198942_e793b6789f_z.jpg

After listening to this band we went home by train.

Wuppertal, Germany - 30th August 2014

By: olgamaus

Hi Mommy,

Katja decided to move to Wuppertal where she is already working since March. It is taking too much time to get there from her current home.

She found a nice apartment in the city centre of Wuppertal and now we started to paint the walls.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7573/16059649940_a482db2f19_z.jpg

The carpet would be removed later and replaced by a floor which looks like wood.

https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7560/16059498298_2a529327f5_z.jpg

https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7531/16059498518_13928fcbaf_z.jpg

Katja's apartment is having a balcony.

https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7538/16221131476_b90648ab69_z.jpg

At the end of August we moved to Wuppertal :)

Hi Mummy,
I am still fine, although we did not take photos while the website was not online.

There are loads of news. The most important one is that we moved from Remscheid to Wuppertal in late August 2014. This was so exciting!

I hope you allow me to stay a bit longer, now that you can follow my adventures again.

Love
Mr. Bear

Hi Mom,
it snowed :D! In the morning we went to town to buy some things for the weekend.

https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7346/16178679307_8439fcaa78_z.jpg

The whole area in front of the station is a giant builing site. It will be like this for the next three years as this place will be completely created newly.

https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7381/16364567485_7cfdcc5307_z.jpg

In the afternoon we went to the forest to take a long walk with our neighbour and her dog. In a nearby park the kids were sledding.

Hi Mommy,

today Katja had only to work until noon. In the afternoon we took the neighbour's dog out on a long walk in the forest. The weather was fantastic!

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7288/16364601517_a1360070dc_z.jpg

Out route led us through several allotment areas.

The large building in the foreground is a school, in the background you can see the valley of river Wupper with the district Barmen.

Wuppertal, Germany - 1st March 2015

By: olgamaus

Hi Mum,

today we took a walk to a lovely landscape park in Wuppertal, the Hardt. But to get there we had to walk for about 20 minutes straight uphill. Here is an overview across the city after leaving our apartment.

This was my first impression of the Hardt, which is a ridge within the Wupper valley, about 230 m high.

Once again we took Jule with us, our  neighbour's dog.

We strolled around the park then.

There are also greenhouses, which unfortunately are not open for visitors before April. The tower is Elise Tower, I will tell you more about it later.

There is also the Botanical Garden located on the Hardt. You are not allowed to take dogs with you into this garden, so we had to stay out (Katja told me that is was not that spectecular this time of year, we'd better visit it in April when there will already blooming flowers).

The garden dates to 1890 when a botanical school garden was first created on a smaller terrain. Between 1908-1910 it relocated to today's site, the Villa of a textile manufactor named Eller, a former country house which contained a villa (built 1820), orangery, residential and farm buildings. Elise Tower was built in 1838 A.D. as the garden's focal point.

At least we found some crocus, usually the first flowers blooming in late winter in Germany.

We walked back to the city then. We came along a church ...

https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8650/16657958216_abf1cf6122_z.jpg

... and a large intersection. A sculpture of the British sculptor Tony Cragg is placed here. Tony Cragg has its own sculpture park in Wuppertal, we walked along it when we took the dog to the forest earlier. Katja promised that we would visit the sculpture park in April or May.

Narrow streets in the city!

https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8568/16497760889_6c000f5a6a_z.jpg

This is the Schwebebahn station "Kluse", not far from my current home.

https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8659/16061570504_2d279e3b13_z.jpg

And once again the Schwebebahn. I like it :D

Wuppertal, Germany - 20th March 2015

By: olgamaus

Hi Mom,

after some days with rainy weather it became better today, so we took a walk after work in another landscape park. In Wuppertal-Barmen this time. We visited Barmer Anlagen, a park which was created since the year 1864 along the South slope of Wupper valley in the district Barmen. Barmen merged with four other cities in 1929 to what is now Wuppertal.

For 150 years now it is supervised and cared by a society of citizens. This park is the second largest park in Germany (behind the English GArden in Munich) which is in private hands.Parts of it are created like what we know as a park, and there are large woodland areas as well. The whole park area is about 3 kmē.

Once a railway line was leading to the top of the slope, the railway line was closed in 1959. Nowadays the former route is recreated by steles.

https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7634/16275276573_03d5c7506b_z.jpg

You can find about 25 memorials within the whole park area, like this one dedicated to the dead of World War I.

https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7588/16894283151_b4f8404b2e_z.jpg

Large height differential - like always in this city :)

https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7647/16272897884_06ae5cbe04_z.jpg

This flight of stairs is under monument protection.

https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8751/16707632818_8f9b8f5c2d_z.jpg

The park is divided by a road.

https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8730/16895276025_f9de096133_z.jpg

The following part of the park is more downhill, towards the city of Barmen.

Snowdrops!

https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7286/16707862460_0508a0642d_z.jpg

I like this house which is build like a bridge :)

Wuppertal, Germany - 18th April 2015

Hi Mommy,

it's springtime now! Today we took a walk with a friend and her dog in an area which was an army training area once. You can find large open ranges here, perfect for the dogs to run and play.

https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5459/17194914682_9cdf55c042_z.jpg

This blooming bush is blackthorn, sort of a wild plum.

https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7637/17195980791_1c2c36ec94_z.jpg

Millions of blossoms!

https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8804/17170635926_3cfa420c80_z.jpg

https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7604/17170636196_2f4bd60d46_z.jpg

In the background you can see a housing areas. You can find lots of beautiful mansions there, usually build by factory owners.

https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7703/17194916432_d768bce52c_z.jpg

As it is really windy on these open ranges, you can often find people with their kites here.
