Prague (Praha), Czechia - 29th February 2008

By: ondrejliska

I've always thought that a rook is just some kind of bird similar to a crow, but today I found out that this word can have also another meaning. Majed taught me to play chess. It was quite fun  :)

For dinner we had bramboračka - Czech potato soup with mushrooms and lots of vegetables.

Prague (Praha), Czechia - 8th March 2008

Majed promised to take me to the Prague Castle. He told me about some bears, but we didn' meet any.

In front of the gate, Castle Guards stand. They don't move at all - unless someone tries to borrow their rifles  :cyclops:
http://sweb.cz/OndrejLiska/small_fry-prague-guards.jpg

St. Vitus Cathedral is the biggest church in Czechia. Its construction began back in 1344 under Charles IV.

And tomorrow we'll visit another castle!

Prague (Praha), Czechia - 9th March 2008

By: ondrejliska

Although "hrad" means "castle" in Czech, Vyšehrad is rather a hill fort. But it's amazing!

We had to go through this gate.
http://sweb.cz/OndrejLiska/majed-small_fry-vysehrad_gate.jpg

Don't be mistaken - this is not the same cathedral we visited yesterday! It's St Peter and St Paul's Church.
http://sweb.cz/OndrejLiska/majed-small_fry-st_peter_and_paul.jpg

Josef Václav Myslbek was a famous Czech scupltor. We saw some of his works.

This is Přemysl and Libuše, alleged founders of the most significant Bohemian ruling dynasty. (Bohemia is the western and central part of Czechia, while Moravia is on the east. Also a small part of Silesia belongs to our country.)
http://sweb.cz/OndrejLiska/majed-small_fry-premysl_and_libuse.jpg

Ctirad and Šárka are famous for taking part in the "Girls' War", a legendary conflict between men and women. Ctirad was a man and Šárka was a woman, so they fought against each other.
http://sweb.cz/OndrejLiska/small_fry-ctirad_and_sarka.jpg

Majed and I also liked the 3D map of Vyšehrad.

Last Monday was the Easter Monday. On this day, people in Czechia bake the Easter Lamb - a sheep-shaped cake symbolising the resurrected Lamb of God.

Prague (Praha), Czechia - 30th March 2008

By: ondrejliska

On Sunday, I visited the Lesser Town Bridge Towers, two towers at the western end of famous Charles Bridge. There is an exhibiton about the bridge and Vltava (the river under the bridge) and the view from the top is excellent.

This is me in front of a Gothic door in the second floor.
http://sweb.cz/slavnigeniove/small_fry-prague-door.jpg

And this is me in the claws of Bohemian Lion, a mighty but friendly heraldry figure.
http://sweb.cz/slavnigeniove/small_fry-prague-lion.jpg

Meet Charles IV, Holy Roman Emperor and Bohemian King who lived and ruled in the 14th century. Czech people usually call him "Father of the Homeland".
http://sweb.cz/slavnigeniove/small_fry-prague-charles_iv.jpg

These sabres and swords were found at the bottom of Vltava - maybe some armed Swedish tourists lost them during the 17th century  :)
http://sweb.cz/slavnigeniove/small_fry-prague-metal_things.jpg

This sword reputedly belonged to Bruncvík, a legendary Czech nobleman who sailed to distant countries and enjoyed a lot of adventures.
http://sweb.cz/slavnigeniove/small_fry-prague-sword.jpg

The Charles Bridge is under reconstruction, but it's not closed.
http://sweb.cz/slavnigeniove/small_fry-prague-bridge_1.jpg

http://sweb.cz/slavnigeniove/small_fry-prague-bridge_2.jpg

Here you can see St. Nicholas Church - maybe the most beautiful Baroque building in the Middle Europe.
http://sweb.cz/slavnigeniove/small_fry-prague-st_nicholas.jpg

And here again, along with the panorama of Prague Castle (you maybe recognize St. Vitus Cathedral, which I visited three weeks ago).
http://sweb.cz/slavnigeniove/small_fry-prague-lesser_town.jpg

I also took picture of the cathedral itself.
http://sweb.cz/slavnigeniove/small_fry-prague-castle.jpg

Have you ever heard about the Infant Jesus of Prague? It's an almost 400 years old statue located in the Church of Our Lady Victorious, which you can see behind me.
http://sweb.cz/slavnigeniove/small_fry-prague-our_lady_victorious.jpg

After I had left the towers, I still had some time, so I decided to go to Wenceslas Square (rather a  boulevard than a square), named after Saint Wenceslas (Svatý Václav), a Bohemian Prince who lived in the 10th century. The building on its upper end is the National Museum. And those two towers behind the Museum - that's St Peter and St Paul's Church on Vyšehrad, which I also visited some time ago.
http://sweb.cz/slavnigeniove/small_fry-prague-wenceslas_square.jpg

I also visited another famous square - the Old Town Square with its Old Town Hall. Astronomical clock (horologium - orloj) with moving figures of Twelve Apostles are a masterpiece of medieval technical skills.

Hello-hello!!

Today I arrived to my next destination - Moscow, Russia!!
The weather was sunny and warm.

Kristl came to meet me with many TVs who were staying here or just leaving Moscow. Here I'm with Trafalgar, Elisabeth, Sniff, Otto and Decker! Trafalgar and Decker were leaving us so I wished them good luck!

http://static.zooomr.com/images/4718102_be9848d52c.jpg

And here you can read the name of the town Kristl lives in - Zheleznodorozhny :) - I'm trying to learn Russian letters!

Zheleznodorozhny, Russia - 26th April 2008

By: kristl

After eating Easter food we went to ride bikes!!!

The weather was great and the nature was very beautiful:

http://static.zooomr.com/images/4718171_73763f8193.jpg

That's where we came from:

http://static.zooomr.com/images/4718204_ea40cccbdc.jpg

And that's where we're going to:

http://static.zooomr.com/images/4718206_288c2901e4.jpg

I found a pool there and even wanted to swim there, but Kristl was worried I can get cold - so I decided not to do this. But I took a lot of photos!!

http://static.zooomr.com/images/4718210_4560f0af13.jpg

http://static.zooomr.com/images/4718208_0b3ada8d9c.jpg

http://static.zooomr.com/images/4718229_ec20991e13.jpg

Then we learned to ride a bike ourselves:

http://static.zooomr.com/images/4718319_dcb6041e39.jpg

http://static.zooomr.com/images/4718302_f082da0c03.jpg

We found a strange tree and climbed upon it.. It was very cosy)

http://static.zooomr.com/images/4718358_b0a298b062.jpg

http://static.zooomr.com/images/4718375_601d46ff9e.jpg

On our way back we saw a wonderful landscape.. Kristl said such landscapes are very typical in Russia :)

http://static.zooomr.com/images/4718424_d0c118aeef.jpg

I'm swimming in the sky!!!!

St Orens, France - 15th June 2008

By: Mood

Hi or Salut in french,

Indeed, I just arrived in France today and I already know how to say hello in french  ... Great isn't it ?

Well, here are the first pictures of my arrival in St Orens where I was welcomed by Smooch, another Toyvoyager coming from England.

She asked me where I was coming from, as she couldn't read what was written on the stamp, so I show her the postal card from Russia that Kristl sent in my package,

Rosas, Spain - 17th July 2008

By: Mood

Today we went to the Cap Creus (a beautiful wild regional parc)
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3270/2674082031_ed5174f63e.jpg?v=0
It is a peninsula of 190 square kilometres of an extraordinary landscape value; a very rocky dry region, with almost no trees, in contrast with a seaside rich in minuscule creeks of deep blue sea to anchor
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3147/2674082027_cd451db7a1.jpg?v=0

Cap de Creus is the easternmost point of mainland Catalonia. The legend tells that the Cap de Creus was made by Hercules.

London, England - 26th July 2008

By: Deborah

It was such a hot day that by the time I arrived in London my furry scales were feeling quite dried out. My new host, Travel Ted, was kind enough to run a nice cool bath for me. This tided me over until I could get to the nearest pond for a spot of refreshing aquatic exercise.

London, England - 29th July 2008

By: Deborah

Today I did my grand tour of London (or as much as I had energy for). I like rivers so I headed for the Thames. On the south bank I saw the big wheel called the ‘London Eye’ and met one of the strange fish supporting the lamp posts. It was a great spot for a panoramic view across the river to Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. I considered swimming across the river for a closer look but it didn’t appear very clean so I decided to take the bridge instead. From that vantage point I could look back at the London Aquarium. Unfortunately this was closed but I consoled myself withthe fact that I'd completed that mission already.
