On October 27th we visited Kamakura, a city to the south of Tokyo, about one hour by train.

We first visited Kotuko-in temple where the Great Buddha of Kamakura (Daibatsu) is. It's almost 14 metres high. It was impressive! The weather was also really nice! The sun was hot!

Me and the Great Buddha.


Views over Kamakura and the Pacific ocean!

Huis ten Bosch, Nagasaki, Japan - 1st November 2009

By: inkie1010

This is my last update from Japan. We also went to Huis ten Bosch, a themepark near Nagasaki on the Kyushu island which has replica's of many buildings from the Netherlands!

Just outside the train station, a hotel which already has some Dutch atmoshpere.

The entrance of the themepark on the horizon!

This is what it looks like! You can tell it's not really in the Netherlands because of the mountains in the background!
I am sorry, I am not on this picture :D I was drinking some really nice apple juice (see next photo!)

I loved this Japanese apple juice called Qoo :D

That was my adventure in Japan! I hope to make a new update from the Netherlands soon :D Now I am going to have some sleep! :)

Hugs, Lucan

Hello mummy!

Tomorrow I am going to travel again, to my new host in Germany. So today I went to the Philipspark in Eindhoven with my host and we ate pancakes.

Eindhoven is the city where the electronics brand Philips started around 1900.

Some pictures of me in the park (the leaves are falling quick now in the Netherlands, winter is coming!)






Yummy apple pancake!!


Now I am going to sleep, because tomorrow I will go into my envelop again to explore more of the world!

Sülfeld, Germany - 16th November 2009

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

today I arrived in Germany. Dicker Kumpel gave me a warm welcome.


Then he introduced me to the other TVs. It should be a great time here, I think.


Because the weather was nice – no rain today – we made a walk around Sülfeld.
First we stopped at a big tractor.



Look, there is a beautiful big tree.


We went over a bridge and had nice views to both sides of it.



We found the last summer-flowers!


Later we wanted to do some sports. We saw a soccer field and played it. I was the goalkeeper. Can you see me?



At the end we all played in the goal.


On our way home we saw another interesting building with a beautiful sign on it.


It was a very nice walk!

Hamburg, Germany - 20th November 2009

By: RikeH

Hello Mum

we went to Hamburg today, because the weather was lovely. We went to the port with the tube. We didn't see many big ships, but had  nice looks over the port.



Can you see the church in the background – it is called Michel – and it is very famous here in Hamburg.


Then we visited Bismarck – he was an important politician many years ago.


From this place we could see the Michel again. It is a beautiful church.


Another nice view over the port. It was such a sunny day!


On our way back we had a nice snack in the train.


And we went to a great restaurant and had delicious icecream. What a great day!

Pronstorf, Germany - 27th November 2009

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

today Marshall arrived. We gave him a warm welcome, ate the sweets he brought – and talked a lot.


We went to a Christmas market on a nice big farm house. Here you can see it.


It was raining..but I talked to a brown snowman, who didn't melt.


Here you see me inside the old stables, where the people sold their beautiful things.


On the way back  we saw another view of the house.


RikeH told me that I will see more Christmas Markets soon.

Love Lucan
