Sülfeld, Germany - 6th December 2009

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

Today is St, Nicholas Day in Germany – maybe all over the world. We don't know that. It means that you have to clean your boots – and put them next to the door. Then they will be filled with delicious sweets.

We all wanted to do it, but we found out that we don't have boots and were very sad. But then we found out that RikeH's Mum helped us – and bought this beautiful boot for us. And we loved the sweets inside.

In the afternoon – after eating a lot of sweets, we visited RikeH's mum – Hummel. She had a lot of Christmas things – so we could make a lot of photos. First with the Advent wreath.

A friendly nutcracker.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1440.jpg

Beautiful things out of wood.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1449.jpg

Then we visited some angels – some of them are an orchestra and play wonderful music.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1463.jpg

Here you can see all of us with a very famous person – Rudolf the red-nose reindeer.

He is living here – it is so exciting!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1455.jpg

Mum, RikeH is so happy at the moment, because she got the message from you that her SunnyHH is with you now! Maybe we will get more sweets now? We will try it...

Bye
Lucan

Hamburg, Airport, Germany - 7th December 2009

By: RikeH

Hello from the Airport,

Today we start our trip to London. I am so excited. First we took two photos inside the Airport.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1474.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1475.jpg

Then we went outside and watched the airplanes.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1495.jpg

And now we are IN one of the planes - here you see all of us together!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1503.jpg

In the evening we arrived in our new home. But we were too tired to make more photos.

Yours
Lucan

London, England - 8th December 2009

By: RikeH

Hi Mum!

We started to explore the city of London. And because of the great weather we jumped into the London Eye.
Here you see me inside.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1509.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1518.jpg

This is me on front of one of the other cabins!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1529.jpg

We had so much fun  - and after the 'flight' we went to the houses of Parliament with the tower called Big Ben.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1538.jpg

Later we had this great look at the London Eye.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1547.jpg

We saw the changing of the Horse Guards.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1565.jpg

At the end we made a stop at Trafalgar Square – but it was too cold to take a bath in the fountain.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1583.jpg

What a great day in London!

Love Lucan

London, England - 9th December 2009

By: RikeH

Good morning Mum!

We will visit the Queen today – or at least watch the changing of the guards in front of the Buckingham Palace. This is normal for tourists – there were hundreds or maybe thousands, but only a few ToyVoyagers.

Well, on our way to the Palace we saw the Parliament again – this time it looked even better – so we made another photo.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1608.jpg

We reached the Palace. Although we were very early, there were so many people.
You can see me in front of the Palace:

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1633.jpg

And this is the monument next to it.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1634.jpg

Then it started : many musicians came and some guards.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1645.jpg

After the ceremony we went to visit the Tower of London.

On the way we found Julius Caesar.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1673.jpg

This was me in front of the Tower:

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1677.jpg

We saw the juwels of the Queen, but we were not allowed to take photos inside. But we found this friendly knight. He was so nice and hold me in his hand. And you can see a part of the Tower Bridge behind us.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1693.jpg

Before we went home we had this great view of the Tower Bridge.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1710.jpg

Back home we talked a lot about our adventures.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1603.jpg

We have a strange white Christmas Tree here. 

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1596.jpg

Look – there is Marshall sitting with Mandy Sheep. We others think that something is strange with Marshall. He is such an unusual sheep.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1721.jpg

We watched both from the other side.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1719.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1722.jpg

Then Dicker Kumpel decided to ask Marshall about his sometimes strange behaviour.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1723.jpg

He told us that he is a wolf and not a sheep.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1724.jpg

First nothing happened – but then :

A Wolf???????

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1725.jpg

The others were very scared, only I was cool and brave– and stayed next to Marshall and talked with him. He told us that he is a friendly wolf and didn't find the right words to tell us that he is not a sheep.

Well that is not a problem. Now we know why he was such a strange sheep – and we call him  our friend, Marshall the Wolf.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1726.jpg

What another exciting day !

Greetings
Lucan

London, England - 10th December 2009

By: RikeH

Hi Mum,

We started our day and bought a ticket for a big bus. This was fun. First we decided where we wanted do go to.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1733.jpg

We drove over the Tower Bridge. We all love the Tower Bridge.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1738.jpg

We went in the park again, because yesterday I didn't saw the squirrel. Today we were happy, because now all of us have a photo with a sqirrel.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1756.jpg

Then we went into the Hyde Park to  visit the Christmas Market. It is called Winter Wonderland here.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1765.jpg

We saw a nice place where people danced on ice... that is strange...

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1771.jpg

Hey, we met some Santa Clauses – I thought that there is only one in the world?

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1778.jpg

In the evening we ran around in the flat – and wanted to show some more of the funny things in this house.
Look in the staircase.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1894.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1895.jpg

We had two funny tables in the flat. The round one shows a map of the busses in London.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1917.jpg

The other one had a plan of the Tubes on it. Dicker Kumpel showed us, where our nearest station was.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1919.jpg

A pillow from London:

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1929.jpg

A curtain of London:

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1930.jpg

and a funny teapot.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1931.jpg

Maybe the British people are sometimes a little weird??? But I like it here.

Greetings
Lucan

London, England - 11th December 2009

By: RikeH

Hi Mum,

Another sunny day in London. We started it in a wonderful market hall.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1804.jpg

We saw this very big monument – called the Monument.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1810.jpg

Hey – all of us in front of the Tower Bridge – we love the Tower Bridge!!!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1814.jpg

This wonderful church is called St. Pauls Cathedral.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1821.jpg

We went on a boat trip on the river Thames.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1838.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1845.jpg

It was dark outside – and we asked RikeH to made a last photo of us in London. You cannot believe where we wanted it. It is such a wonderful bridge.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1863.jpg

We had such a great time in London. But tomorrow we will go back home to Germany.

Yours
Lucan

Sülfeld, Germany - 14th December 2009

By: RikeH

Hi Mum!

We had snow!!! I was so excited!!! Look, how beautiful it is outside.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1968.jpg

We went into the centre of Sülfeld to see the church and the rest in white.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1980.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_1985.jpg

Back home we had some delicious cakes. What a nice week-end.

Sülfeld, Germany - 21st December 2009

By: RikeH

Hi Mum,

The winter is in Germany now. We helped RikeH with the snow shovel.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2058.jpg

Then we made a nice walk through the snow. Here you see me on a big snowhill.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2068.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2069.jpg

Later we had a great view over a field.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2070.jpg

Back home we played in the garden. Here is a quiz. Can you see where I sat????

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2075.jpg

Here is the solution:

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2076.jpg

There are beautiful trees with the snow on it.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2077.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2081.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2084.jpg

These two friendly guys were in front of our house.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2088.jpg

In the house we first sat on the radiator to get dry.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2090.jpg

Then I had a hot tea and some delicious cookies. Now I am waiting for Christmas.

Hamburg, Germany - 23rd December 2009

By: RikeH

Hi Mum,

Today I went to Hamburg to see the Christmas Market there. It is really nice – with many lights.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2097.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2098.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2101.jpg

A very tall tree – but wonderful!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2102.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2105.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2106.jpg

Inside the railway station there are lights, too.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2109.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2110.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2113.jpg

Our train arrived – but he was too fast to get a good picture. Tomorrow is Christmas!!!

Sülfeld, Germany - 24th December 2009

By: RikeH

Merry Christmas Mum,

On the 24th of December the people celebrate Christmas in Germany. In the North it is Santa Claus, who brings the gifts, in the south it is the Christ Child. Because we are in the North, normally we have Santa Claus – but this year it was different – just have a look.

This is the Christmas Tree – I really love it!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2192.jpg

Under the Christmas Tree there were many Christmas Cards from all over the world.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2177.jpg

Another nice Christmas decoration!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2140.jpg

We all sat together and RikeH read the Nativity story for us. It is about Maria, Josef and their child Jesus.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2150.jpg

What a surprise – I were able to visit them – in a stable...

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2141.jpg

Then the important time of the evening came. The gifts!!! Four Christmas people came – a Christmas Bear, Rudolph, the famous Rendeer, a big Snowman – and Santa Claus. Hm – Santa Claus??? It was a Santa Bunny. Maybe because Dicker Kumpel is living here?

Well, I told a Christmas-poem and Santa Bunny gave me a present.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2158.jpg

I opened it – some sweets. I love Christmas.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2166.jpg

When we all got our gifts, we sat together and sang the wonderful German Christmas Songs. I especially loved ‘Vom Himmel hoch.’

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2151.jpg

I hope that you had a nice Christmas time, although I didn’t celebrated it with you?

Love
Lucan

Hamburg, Germany - 31st December 2009

By: RikeH

Hi Mum,

It is New Year's Eve – and we will celebrate it. Here are the gifts for our host for this evening.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2238.jpg

The clothes for the bottle were so funny – I tried it out,

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2232.jpg

We had something delicious to eat. It was called Chesse-Fondue.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2243.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2250.jpg

Later we had a great dessert, too. A kind of Tiramisu.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2253.jpg

We played an interesting game – and I won it!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2256.jpg

When we came close to midnight, we had a glass of Champagne and something delicious called 'Berliner'.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2301.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2262.jpg

After it we went out onto the balcony and watched the fireworks.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2271.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2281.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2293.jpg

Look at this beautiful hat.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2306.jpg

Mum, I wish you a Happy Year 2010.

yours Lucan

Hi Mum,

I had a great time here, but now I will go to my next host.

First I said good-bye to Dicker Kumpel. He is such a great host and friend. I will miss him.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%202009/IMG_2311.jpg

Then I got a big hug from all the others.

Hi Mum!

I arrived in Stroud this morning...actually I have been here a while, stuck in the local post office! The owners had to close for a little while but I'm with my host now  ;)

Well, it is sooo hot here! A big shock after coming from a German winter.
