Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - 12th November 2008

By: cyndir

Luddie is looking for some new friends!  Her mommy has decided that it's time for her to meet new people, make new friends, and liven up some lives!  I hope someone out there is looking for a new, cute, and cuddly friend to take in a for a little while. :D

Ok, now I'm all packaged up and ready to go to the post office.  I hope it doesn't take too long as it's pretty cramped in this envelope.  I'm so excited!  I can't wait to meet my new friends!  :D

Traveling, Across the ocean - 19th November 2008

By: cyndir

Luddie is now on her way to Germany.  I hope she's ok, stuffed int that little envelope.  She's a dreamer, so hopefully she sleeps the whole way and has lots of sweet, sweet dreams.  I miss her already  :( but I'm sure she meet lots of people, make lots of friends, and have lots of fun.  I can't wait to hear all about it :-)

Kellinghusen, Germany - 24th November 2008

By: babyamy

Hey, what's bumping on me? I've been dreaming so nice...
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3201/3056901810_162d8464ea.jpg?v=0

And now there is a light... Let's stretch the trunk out of the envelope and see where I am. Look, there is a little bear... I'm still a bit sleepy after this long journey. This must be my first host's house...
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3162/3056064079_c67e82ba1f.jpg?v=0

My host Katrin says that I made it trough the cutoms without any problems and now I'm going to stay with her for the rest of the year. This little bear is called Peti, it gave me a big welcome hug.

Hamburg, Germany - 25th November 2008

By: babyamy

Katrin took me to Hamburg today. From Monday to Thursday she's working in the archive of a museum in Hamburg. Her task today was not too exciting. She got an old photoalbum which photos she has already scaned. Now she has to write an entry for each photo in the database.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3270/3058892349_185e90fbe7.jpg?v=0

Later this morning a box arrived and curious as girls are did we open it. It smelled terrible like tabacco, since there were many things from an archive in it which collects cigarettes and everything what belongs to this topic.  We discovered this old ad for Camel, it's from the 1940's
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3019/3058892111_f419e57ab4.jpg?v=0

While Katrin was working, I sat in front of the window and lokked at all the people passing by.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3136/3059728912_b43756ac0c.jpg?v=0

During the lunch break, Katrin and I went for a walk because the sun was shining and it wasn't too cold outside.
This strange thing is called TRUDE, it's a drill which was used to builda tunnel under the river Elbe. It's very huge!
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3041/3058892517_c239f2bbd8.jpg?v=0

Then we walked along this small river to get some more fresh air.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3039/3058892225_6fd0bb6b50.jpg?v=0

This is at the central station before we took the train back home. Do you like this Christmas decoration?

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3138/3058891827_363c5b6e3d.jpg?v=0

This was a strange view...Why do you tie up the garbage can with a phone booth and a bench? We don't know.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3071/3059728114_eaefb94c6e.jpg?v=0

In the train I got my own seat...until and old lady came, who nearly seated on me! I decided to spend the way home safe in Katrin's bag.

Katrin's house, Germany - 26th November 2008

By: babyamy

Katrin's mum has started to decorate the house for Christmas. When Katrin came back home today, Luddie and I had to show her what we had discovered.

These two wooden figures are sitting on the window shelf on the first floor.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3252/3061195169_a78733131c.jpg?v=0

The bells on this photo are typical for Katrin's hometown, the way they are looking is called Fayencen.
This website is in German, but when you click on "Kellinghusener Jahresteller" in the left frame, you can see some more Fayencen.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3192/3061195267_6d2a0d1e74.jpg?v=0

We even met a small version of Santa Clause or the "Weihnachtsmann", that's how he is called in German. He said that we can visit him again and then he will teach us some German Christmas poems.

Lübeck, Germany - 29th November 2008

By: babyamy

Today we went to Lübeck, it's an old city near the Baltic Sea.
This is the most known sight of Lübeck, the "Holstentor".
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3202/3070899649_53fe4b7d5a.jpg?v=0

In front of the "Holstentor" there was this sleeping lion. It was snowing and raining the whole time, not the best weather to take photos outside...
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3135/3071735784_094268fd8c.jpg?v=0

The Christmas fair, in the background St. Mary's Church.
There were many many people and Katrin was scared to loose one of us, that's why she didn't take more photos.

Kellinghusen, Germany - 1st December 2008

By: babyamy

Look at this! Although Katrin told her mum that she feels a bit to old to get an "Adventskalender", her parents gave her one with wine gum!
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3172/3073235455_f7eb644a37.jpg?v=0

The door number one was on the left button side...
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3250/3074072182_3d62c8eb8b.jpg?v=0

...and behind the door was a little bag of gummi bears! Katrin shared them with us.

Katrin's home, Germany - 1st December 2008

By: babyamy

Katrin had a day off from work today and had had big plans what she wanted to do today... well, she did about half of it...  :rolleyes:

She wrote a letter to on of her pen pals and was happy, that she could finally use her paper with Christmas motives.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3147/3074085133_02215b7f37.jpg?v=0

The most important work of the day: write the presentation about her work in the museum for next week's event at her university. Katrin didn't like this work, but it must be done.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3206/3074921718_e9e5213082.jpg?v=0

This was her favorite work: preparing surprise letters for some other TV hosts. Since she read the Christmas wishlist thread yesterday, she's been busy and this is the result: three letters filled with little surprises.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3205/3074085359_8fe8a71f8a.jpg?v=0

And finally Katrin discovered unknown creativity, she draw this picture forsararingham's art sketchbook. It's nothing special, but Katrin is proud of it since she hated art class in school. :D

Kellinghusen, Germany - 4th December 2008

By: babyamy

Katrin came back home at bit earlier today and she grabed us to take some photos outside. She was a bit sad, that she didn't take us with her to Hamburg yesterday, since it has been snowing more or less the whole day. Today most of the snow has been melted away... :(
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3081/3081839281_56ef38c01d.jpg?v=0

This is the Christmas decoration in front of the front door.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3223/3081839363_ec7a3f7ca3.jpg?v=0

It was getting cold outside and we went back to the kitchen. Katrin wanted to show us, what she is going to eat for breakfast for the next years. This is millet, amaranth and     buckwheat. She eats it with fruits and cream. On Monday Katrin went to the doctor's and the doctor told her, that she isn't aloud to eat anything which includes milk, egg and wheat/gluten anymore when she don't want to become really sick. It seems like Katrin has to change her eating habits a lot, but she has some plans and is still in a good mood...
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3031/3081839435_c5be7e8a9b.jpg?v=0

But there was a surprise in the mailbox, that cheers Katrin up at once: It was a letter from Eryah...
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3210/3082678794_877354077e.jpg?v=0

... with a little Christmas surprise! Katrin fell in love with the little pig at once, but she is still looking for a nice place for it.

Schwerin, Germany - 6th December 2008

By: babyamy

Today is "Nikolaus", Katrin seemed to be a nice girl during the last year since the "Nikolaus" filled her shoes with many presents. Peti and I had to look. Katrin got some sweets and this little elk, but her boyfriend told her not send it away. Seems like he can read her mind, since the little elk has the perfect size to be a toyvoyager...
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3230/3090639946_e1835cb460.jpg?v=0
We are in Schwerin now, we are visiting Katrin's boyfriend. This afternoon we'll go to the Christmas Fair...

Schwerin, Germany - 6th December 2008

By: babyamy

This afternoon Katrin and her boyfriend went for a quick walk over the Christmas market in Schwerin. On the way I saw this bull on the "Schlachtermarkt".
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3277/3090638762_a6075e167b.jpg?v=0

This is the Christmas market on the market place, in the backgrpund is the cathedral of Schwerin.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3177/3089800451_550bb19792.jpg?v=0

The holy family... and a little elephant. Can you see me? ;)
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3142/3089800007_20db19c029.jpg?v=0

I also met the symbol of Schwerin, a rhinoceros!

on the way to Kellinghusen, Germany - 7th December 2008

By: babyamy

While Katrin was reading in the train back home, Peti and I decided to have a look at the landscape...as long as there was enough light outside.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3136/3090639024_2ffe4c9c91.jpg?v=0

Back home in Kellinghusen I had to say goodbye the Peti since he is going to leave to visit his next host. I gave him a huge hug before he crawled into his envelope.

Katrin's desk, Germany - 8th December 2008

By: babyamy

Heya, look at this pile of letters! Ithink Katrin will be happy, when she comes back home. I'll hide behind it and try to scare her when she enters her room...
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3290/3093728788_eefd062a97.jpg?v=0

Katrin screamed a bit when I said "buh" but then she laughed and started to open the letters. The two big ones are books for her boyfriend, the next one was a surprise letter from olgamaus filled with tea and chocolate.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3169/3092887931_c2df39fba8.jpg?v=0

The last letter was a real surprise. At first I welcomed a new TV guest called Lady Sirina but then another plush toy leaves the envelope! When Katrin saw it she was thinking at once about turning it into a new TV...sometime next year, since she is too busy until March. Thank you Apperveilchen for this great surprise!
