Bruchsal, Germany - 31st October 2007

By: fam-united

We toyvoyager friends climbed on the lights, but I'm not sure, whether you find us here. This window is in our hosts' kitchen.

We had some fun here and it helped us a lot. We weren't too sad anymore, that we are no monkeys. Of course we thought of those toyvoyagers, who are in Oregon right now.

Odenheim, Germany - 1st November 2007

By: fam-united

We visited a very interesting place today. It is called Siegfriedsbrunnen (fountain). In the forest of Odes (Odenwald) four fountains are named as place, where Siegfried was murdered by Hagen von Tronje. We saw one of this fountains. There is a famous song about the Nibelungs.

When I turned around I saw these beautiful trees.

Ober÷wisheim, Germany - 1st November 2007

By: fam-united

Then we drove to the Pfannwaldsee, a lake. They decided to walk around the lake and everyone got really cold feet. And I was a little sad, that I haven't been allowed to jump in the water. They told me, that I would get wet and that it is much too cold for a fish like me.

Today we drove to the Black Forest. Fabian, my hosts one son, was invited to stay there for the next two nights. So we all decided to bring him there.

Gutach, Germany - 2nd November 2007

By: fam-united

We visited the Vogtsbauernhof in Gutach, which is an Open Air Museum. Here is what we read in a folder:

Where the magnificently preserved Vogtsbauernhof farmstead once stood alone in the open fields, it is now joined by numerous historical buildings from various regions of the Black Forest to breathe life into times of long ago. Six fully furnished farmhouses, the day labourer's cottage and 15 outbuildings, such as mills, sawmills, barns, stalls, a chapel, storehouses and granny house (Leibgedinghaus), invite to take a stroll and discover the multifaceted aspects of the Black Forest way of life.

Porvoo, Finland - 6th February 2008

By: Delenna

I arrived from Ukraine to Finland safely. My Finnish host said I was a special guest as she was my mentor's summerpostcardpal last summer (Postcrossing)! My host said I brought good memories with me - and I didn't even know!  :o  :D

I was able to try their Sauna and make friends with some of the watertoys. The sauna was hot but the water in the basket was cool. I can imagine why people like it, especially when its cold and wet outside.

Porvoo, Finland - 7th February 2008

By: Delenna

I was able to see some of the city center today. My host told abit about this town named Porvoo. It has 47 000 inhabitants and is situated only about 50km (1 hour drive by bus) from Helsinki, the capitol. Porvoo is a touristy town and it's most famous attraction is the old town. I was promised I would see it.

Porvoo, Finland - 8th February 2008

By: Delenna

Today my host and her daughters showed me their closest neighbourhood. They live by the Baltic Sea! Well, okay, it's not an open sea view as there's so much archipelago around the coastline. But it is the Baltic Sea. If it was warmer I would've jumped in! Of course this area has its downside as well - the factory on the other side.

I was told that the creator of Moomin spent her summers in this part of the archipelago. No wonder Moominpappa loves the sea!

Old Town in Porvoo, Finland - 11th February 2008

By: Delenna

It was a chilly weather when we walked thru the Old Town. This place is crowded up with tourists in the summer - now I was the only one! In the third picture I'm looking towards the Castle Hill (and River Porvoo) where used to be a castle/fortress hundreds of years ago. My host says it's a great place to play Robin Hood :) On top of the hill is a great view to the River and Old Town, it's my host's favorite and she promised she'll try to take me there! The church has been under construction after an arson in May 2006 (the roof was burnt down). The red shore houses used to be warehouses - and they still are mostly but they have been renovated from the inside to livinquarters as well. They're the most wellknown sight here. The red'ish house further away is a historical museum. There's clothes, coins etc. from past centuries but it's closed for renovations now, so we couldn't go in. There's also a Toy Museum, showing toys from past centuries but it's open in summertime only, that would've been interesting. The Old Town is really a historical place with lots of stories - if the walls could speak...

Porvoo, Finland - 16th February 2008

By: Delenna

As we had a better (sunny and cold) weather today my host took me to the local "sightseeing tower". As you can see it was a great view over the town and river! We took a few pics underneath it too - the red shorehouses and the bridges.

The hill with white top is the local ski centre, they've brought the snow there (it hasn't snowed that much for a long time).

Porvoo, Finland - 20th February 2008

By: Delenna

We finally had some more snow here in Finland! Naturally we had to test the new sleighs right away  :D That is me with lucky-Ducky and Ms Mini Meow. The kitten had just arrived from Australia back home for a short stay (she's my host's own travelling toy from Postcrossing).

We went cat-sitting the cats of my host's mother-in-law. I tried my best to stay away from them as they seemed to be very fond of fish - as food! I'm glad my host was there too to look after me.

Porvoo, Finland - 22nd February 2008

By: Delenna

This is me on the Castle Hill (I saw it from beneath earlier) where used to be a castle/fortress hundreds of years ago. This is my host's favorite place in this town and I can't blame her for loving the view! You can see the 5 bridges that cross the Porvoo River! The place has a special spot in her heart also because she used to date her then-boyfriend-now-husband on the side of thet hill many many years ago :) Ah L'amour!

These past two weeks here have been hectic, my host wanted to show me as much as possible in as short time as possible because I was stuck quite a while before I got here. She understands my need to move on :) She told me to say "Hi" to my mentor when I go back home :) I'll head towards Czech Republic now! Bye bye Finland!
