Ipswich, Australia - 20th February 2009

By: crizle

Well folks, I have spent alot of time at home, but we recently had a day at Queens Park in Ipswich.
Here I am ohaving a rest after looking at all the gardens.
I wanted to go to the Incinerator Theatre but it was closed.

That next day we went for a drive to the Gold Coast and I sat on the beach, and had prawns for lunch.
You see? I also like seafood.

I have been having a great time in Australia.
I took driving lessons and my friend Kari and I went for a drive and stayed in a special caravan.

Last weekend we went to Toowoomba up on the Darling Downs.
We visited the Queensland 150 years monument, looked out over Picnic Point, and visited the parks.

Remscheid, Germany - 3rd June 2009

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
I arrived in Remscheid today. I came here with Sportie, a tiny mouse, so the long journey wasn't even boring.


Crizle put a notepad into our envelope for my new host Katja. She already attached it to her fridge. She really likes it.

Thank you, crizle!


Katja is well prepared, look what was awaiting me :D


I already met a lot of ToyVoyagers.


In a few days Nijntje will return, she went to Northern Germany with Katja's parents. Karlheinz spent the weekend with Katja's colleage at the River Moselle. This green frog Hugo also arrived today.

Remscheid, Germany - 4th June 2009

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
it is really cold in Remscheid, only about 11°C. Whoa! Katja took Manner and me to her workplace. She is working as a secretary in a law firm. Of course we helped her with her work.


We've made some photocopies.


When all the photocopies were done, we climbed into the photocopier.


Katja had to press the button ...


... and here is our photo!


We took a look through all the offices than. This is a statue of Lady Justice.


Here are wooden sorts in a frame. All the letters are forming words and terms referring to jurisprudence. In the upper right corner you can see the letters BGB which means "Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch", the German Civil Code.


Finally I found a world map. I showed Katja where to my home town Vienna is.


Working in an office is really hard work!

Remscheid, Germany - 8th June 2009

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
Katja showed me the city hall today. At the weekend the weather was really bad. Today the sun came out again.

Here you can see me in front of the city hall. The building was originally built in 1906, was nearly destroyed in World War II and was rebuilt later in a more modern style. The tower is 48 m high.


In front of the city hall the farmer's market is taking place twice a week. Here you can see a pillar with a lion, the heraldic animal of Remscheid.


There is an entrance to the shopping mall opposite of the city hall.

Remscheid-Hasten, Germany - 8th June 2009

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
in the afternoon we took a walk to the post office. Katja had to send a parcel to a friend.

We walked to the district Hasten, one of the oldest districts of the municipal area. You can find many old  houses here, often the so-called "Bergische Häuser" (Bergisch houses). Houses which are covered with slate and timberframed houses, both of them often with green shutters. are typical for this region.

This Patrician villa was built in 1778/1779. Today a museum is situated here, a museum of local history.


On the front doors you can find lion shaped knockers. Many old houses still have them.


In a complex of buildings behind the museum another museum is located: The Deutsches Werkzeugmuseum (German Tools Museum). It was closed but we had a look at the surrounding park where some machines are displayed.



I'm sitting with Sportie on an anvil. Remscheid is famous for its tool producing industry, from medieval times tools are produced here.




On our way home we saw more pretty old houses.



Bye for today

Remscheid, Germany - 21st June 2009

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
today we took a walk along the Trasse des Werkzeugs (Route of Tools), which is a lane for pedestrians and cyclists which were built on a closed railway track. It was sponsored by local tool producing companies. Remscheid is famous for it's tool producing industry since medieval times. That's why this lane is called Trasse des Werkzeugs.

The weather was not good, we were in hope of not becoming wet.

From here you have an overview across the outskirts of the neighbour city Wuppertal.


Behind me you can see allotment gardens. They have many garden areas here.


At an intersection some signs with the logos of some sponsors are installed (with a really beautiful container yard in the background :D ).


The first sign is showing the crest of Remscheid.


Here we had to cross a street.


You can find many industrial buildings along the lane, some of them already dilapidated.


You can also find rest areas here.


Here is the instanteanous ending of the Trasse des Werkzeugs, it will be completed soon.


On our way back home it started to rain and we had to hurry home.

Wuppertal, Germany - 15th July 2009

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
we went to Wuppertal today. Wuppertal is one of the neighbour cities. Katja had to buy a few things at Hornbach, her favourite DIY-store. She had to make a new interior for her large rat cage.

Afterwards we went to the Botanical Garden. Wuppertal is situated, like the name already says, at the river Wupper, along a deep valley with the city centre in the valley itself, large parts on the steep slopes of the valley.

You can find the Botanical Garden on a very high point, overlooking the city centre in the valley. In 1890 it was a school garden first. Later, in 1908 a textile industrialist built his country house here, the "Eller'sche Villa". Later the Elisenturm Elisen Tower) was also built here, which is now the focal point of the garden. Since 1929 it is a municipal garden, open daily.


This is the Elisenturm.


First we entered the tower and enjoyed the fantastic overview.


Here you can see the new greenhouses, they were built in 2006.


We went to the greenhouses than. Here you can see plants from the warmer parts of the world, like palms.




We went into the garden than. I saw lots of pretty flowers and interesting trees, also the former country house.




This bed is showing typical plants of a moor area, also insect-eating plants.


I also saw a plant with vast leafs.
