By: guimartins

Here I am at Buenos Aires!
After a long trip, I finally got to know my new hoster. A few hours after I got here, my host received a package. I was so curious and couldn´t wait to open it! What was my surprise when Charlie came out of the package! I´m so happy I have another friend to go on this trail in Argentina with me!

Buenos Aires, Argentina - 2nd March 2008

By: guimartins

Yesterday we went to Avenida de Mayo for a walk. This is the Congraso de la Nacion, a very historical building from 1906. We walked a lot this day and also went to Avenida Nueve de Julio, the most important avenue in Buenos Aires. You can see the Obelisco far away.

Hi there!  I arrived in Madison today, visiting Melissa!

A brief moment of sunshine outside :)

Here I am coming in the door to Melissa's apartment!

Today I met Lemony,  who arrived yesterday.  We are waiting for one more toyvoyager to arrive (any day now, says Melissa) before we do most of our touristy stuff. :)

Here we are relaxing on the leather furniture in the living room.  We spent the afternoon watching movies (it's been very rainy outside for days now, not very good traveling weather).

Melissa said today she can tell that the three of us are going to be trouble and will "climb all over everything" ;)

Later today we're going to the Botanical Gardens!  We hear it's beautiful!

Madison, WI, USA - 15th June 2008

Today we went to the Olbrich Botanical Gardens with Melissa and two of her friends.  She says the layout of the flowers changes all the time - she went in early May and it was all tulips, and now it's a lot of roses and stuff. :)

The first place we went to was the Thai Pavilion, Melissa's favorite part of the whole Botanical Garden.  It's a very beautiful pavilion sent to the park from Thailand.  It's decorated with gold leaf and very intricate details.

She let me climb!

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3207/2656920606_943a019530.jpg
You can see some of the gold leaf detail in this photo.  It's on all of the pillars and the inside and outside of the roof.  Sooo pretty!

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3143/2656117759_50c6476d62.jpg
On our way away from the pavilion, we spotted a lost toy!  The three of us wanted to adopt her as a new toyvoyager, but Melissa said there was probably a little girl at the gardens somewhere with her parents that was missing it.  So we left it there to be claimed.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3108/2645697469_e81aa1c2c8.jpg
Here I am in the middle of the garden of medicinal herbs/plants/flowers. :)

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3271/2646543700_ed9ff79b03.jpg
Here we are resting in an area with waterfalls and rocks and lots of interesting landscaping.  We didn't get many good pictures in this area, unfortunately, because the birds were nesting there and they attacked everyone that got too close!  It was crazy!

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3259/2646551086_46616a3bb3.jpg
Close up!

Miss you!  Next stop: the Capitol Building!

Dublin City, Ireland - 27th May 2010

By: Irish Wanderer



Hi Mum! I've arrived in IRELAND!!!!!!!!!!!
Yippeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!! :D

I've been waiting so long to make my dream trip to Ireland and I'm just so excited!!!

Last night I arrived in Dublin, and this morning a very nice postman put me in his bag whilst he cycled to my  new hosts apartment.
He rang the bell and then a very nice lady appeared. She chatted to the postman before signing a document.

I was so excited  to get out of my travelling parcel  :D

http://i972.photobucket.com/albums/ae204/IrishWanderer/ToyVoyagers%20in%20Ireland/Eireannach/Eir1-1.jpg

I was welcomed by another TV called King Tut and also Rattie and Bridie who live with my host 

http://i972.photobucket.com/albums/ae204/IrishWanderer/ToyVoyagers%20in%20Ireland/Eireannach/Eir2-1.jpg


My host took some group photos.

http://i972.photobucket.com/albums/ae204/IrishWanderer/ToyVoyagers%20in%20Ireland/Eireannach/Eir3-1.jpg

and then they welcomed me with a bottle of Guinness!
I believe it's an Irish custom  :D

http://i972.photobucket.com/albums/ae204/IrishWanderer/ToyVoyagers%20in%20Ireland/Eireannach/Eir4-1.jpg

My host told me that King Tut is leaving for Italy today so we had our picture taken together. I was sad that I could not get to know him. He seems like an interesting chap. He is a very well known King. Wow Royalty!!!

http://i972.photobucket.com/albums/ae204/IrishWanderer/ToyVoyagers%20in%20Ireland/Eireannach/Eir6-1.jpg

I then helped  King Tut  into his evelope for his  trip to Italy.
I wish him good luck  :D

By: Irish Wanderer


Hi Mum. Meet my new best friend!  :D
His name is Winston. He is only 9 months old but is one big fluffy cat.  He has very long whiskers and  a very long fluffy tail!
He likes to play and has tried to pull my hat off  :thinking:

We posed for some pictures.

Palma,, Mallorca - 1st July 2010

By: Irish Wanderer


Hi Mum!My host has had  a small problem with uploading our holiday photos so I'm only updating my blog now  :cyclops:

Here I am in Palma. It is the capital of Mallorca which is a Spanish island.  Palma has lots of  old narrow streets and many old buildings!
Here I am in front of the Museum of Mallorca.

http://i972.photobucket.com/albums/ae204/IrishWanderer/ToyVoyagers%20in%20Ireland/eir2-1.jpg

One of the many old streets that I explored in the capital.

http://i972.photobucket.com/albums/ae204/IrishWanderer/ToyVoyagers%20in%20Ireland/eir3-1.jpg

Palma has a famous Gothic Cathedral and a very famous fellow called Gaudi did some work on the building.

http://i972.photobucket.com/albums/ae204/IrishWanderer/ToyVoyagers%20in%20Ireland/eir1-1.jpg

I loved all the beautiful courtyards which belonged to many of the rich people who lived in Palma many years ago.
http://i972.photobucket.com/albums/ae204/IrishWanderer/ToyVoyagers%20in%20Ireland/eir4-1.jpg

We paid  a visit to The Arab Baths and Gardens. It was a lovely place to take a break from walking around the streets. The gardens were very pretty!

Here's me sitting at the kitchen window.

A nice town square:

http://i972.photobucket.com/albums/ae204/IrishWanderer/ToyVoyagers%20in%20Ireland/eir18-1.jpg

We took a walk along the seafront. It was really pretty as the sun was setting.

http://i972.photobucket.com/albums/ae204/IrishWanderer/ToyVoyagers%20in%20Ireland/eir22-1-1.jpg
Here is another picture of the Gothic Cathedral from the seafront.
