Miskolc, Hungary - 30th December 2008

By: Szandra

My name is Bella and I'm a baby girl hippo living in Miskolc, Hungary.
Today I decided to become a ToyVoyageger.
I'm very tiny and always happy, so it'll be very easy to host me! I'll be a good girl, I promise! ;)
Now I'm looking for my first host... I'm very excited!!! :D

Here I am again, drinking a hot chocolate by the fireplace with Skippy.

We just came back from the mall! Outside it's raining but we had a wonderful time. So here I am at the fountain...

here is a Carousel they have outside the mall, it was cold and we decided to avoid the ride....  :cyclops:

Oh! this is a nice one! We met a huge snowman there! Here I am sitting on his carrot nose!

Vicky says we might go skiing this weekend! I am so excited!

Bye!

I've taken a lot of pictures all of these days so here they are.

Picture1 : here we are cooking ... with a BIG bottle of olive oil!
Picture2: octopus.... it's soooo tasty!
Picture3: fried meet balls
Picture4: fried shrimps with feta cheese and tomato sauce
Picture5: on top "dolmadakia" which are grape leafs stuffed with rice and on the bottom "papoutsakia" which are aubergines stuffed with mince and bessamel sauce on top
Picture6: and for desert "baklava" with walnuts and syrup

Enjoy

Thessaloniki, Greece - 7th February 2009

By: vickyp

Today was a very fun day.

The weather was great so we decided to go for a walk by the sea side with the whole family. Mom, dad, the kids, and the toys (me and Skippy).
Thessaloniki is the second biggest city of Greece (after Athens) and is build by the sea.

This is me overlooking the sea and in the background is a view of the city
http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu349/vickypgr/toyvoyagers/IMG_7765.jpg

Here I am in front of the Concert Hall
http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu349/vickypgr/toyvoyagers/IMG_7769.jpg

Take a look at some photos we took by the sea side

http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu349/vickypgr/toyvoyagers/IMG_7806.jpg

http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu349/vickypgr/toyvoyagers/IMG_7822.jpg

we walked by some tennis and basketball courts,
http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu349/vickypgr/toyvoyagers/IMG_7825.jpg

some fountains and artificial waterfalls,
http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu349/vickypgr/toyvoyagers/IMG_7818.jpg

many playgrounds (we had to stop to each and everyone of them for the kids to play...) Take a look at this rather spooky one!  B)
http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu349/vickypgr/toyvoyagers/IMG_7845.jpg

... while in the sea there was a sailing contest
http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu349/vickypgr/toyvoyagers/IMG_7853.jpg

What a great day! Hope you enjoyed my photos  :p
If the weather is as good tomorrow we'll go sightseeing again!

Love Bella

Thessaloniki, Greece - 23rd February 2009

By: vickyp

Hi again from Thessaloniki!
I had a great day on Sunday because we went sightseeing. The weather was really bad, it was snowing and freezing but we went to the city center.
Normally there is always a traffic jam there, but because it was Sunday morning and all the shops where closed it was quite nice!
So here are a couple of pictures of me and Skippy, driving to the city center.
http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu349/vickypgr/toyvoyagers/IMG_8013.jpg
http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu349/vickypgr/toyvoyagers/IMG_8014.jpg

This is the main square of Thessaloniki. It is called "Aristotelous Square" named after the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle.
http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu349/vickypgr/toyvoyagers/IMG_8015.jpg

We had to stop in Starbucks (love it) for a hot cup of coffee to keep us warm, and for a sweet snack!
http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu349/vickypgr/toyvoyagers/IMG_8020.jpg

Then we went to see the "White Tower", the symbol of the town.
It used to be a notorious prison and scene of mass executions during the period of Ottoman rule. It was substantially remodeled and its exterior was whitewashed after Greece gained control of the city in 1912, turning the former "Tower of Blood" into the present-day White Tower.
Take a look at the Greek flag in the middle, the blue one with the white stripes.
http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu349/vickypgr/toyvoyagers/IMG_8026.jpg

A fountain in the city center
http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu349/vickypgr/toyvoyagers/IMG_8035.jpg

and the statue of Alexander the Great, king of Macedons (336323 BC). He was one of the most successful military commanders of all time and is presumed undefeated in battle.

http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu349/vickypgr/toyvoyagers/IMG_8045.jpg

Did you know that Thessaloniki is named after Alexander's sister "Thessaloniki"? It is the second-largest city in Greece and the capital of Macedonia, the nation's largest region.

http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu349/vickypgr/toyvoyagers/IMG_8049.jpg

This is me in a real size "sarissa".
The sarissa was a 4 to 7 meter (13-21 feet) long pike used in the ancient Greek warfare. It was used in the traditional Greek phalanx formation as a replacement for the earlier dory, which was considerably shorter. The sarissa, was very heavy for a spear, weighing over 5 kg (12 pounds).
Can you find me in the photo?

http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu349/vickypgr/toyvoyagers/IMG_8050.jpg

http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu349/vickypgr/toyvoyagers/IMG_8051.jpg

Then we went at the marina to see the sailing boats
http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu349/vickypgr/toyvoyagers/IMG_8064.jpg
http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu349/vickypgr/toyvoyagers/IMG_8065.jpg

Sunday is a day for family gatherings, so grandma invited us for lunch. Here we are driving to go to her house.... can you see the snow outside the window?
http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu349/vickypgr/toyvoyagers/IMG_8073.jpg

Oh, take a look what we had for lunch
-souvlakia (meat on a stick)
-kefte (mince balls)
-salads (potato salad and cabbage/carrot/spinach salad)
-sardines in the oven for those that prefer to eat fish

Thermi, Greece - 7th March 2009

By: vickyp

Hi mom!
Today it was sunny and warm, so we went to a suburb of Thessaloniki, called Thermi.
It's a small town and there is a dam there. The place is so calm and the ducks are so friendly!

Take a look at the photos!

http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu349/vickypgr/toyvoyagers/IMG_0244.jpg

And here I am with the whole gang at the slider of the playground.
You know Skippy Kangaroo... the other four toys in the middle are new ones that my host is getting prepared for their first adventure in the Toyvoyager world!
