Narromine, NSW, Australia - 23rd April 2009

By: sararingham

Next stop was Narromine a small town outside of Dubbo (around 45 minutes drive from Dubbo)... sadly we didn't have much time to spend there so we got some photos on the road... it was already a long way home and we've already been driving for so many hours today!

Next stop is the last stop before going back home to Orange! Yay!

Peak Hill, NSW, Australia - 23rd April 2009

By: sararingham

Finally! At our last stop before heading back home... we've ended up in a tiny tiny town called PeakHill... it has a population of only around 800 people... so a very one road town... not much to see as were driving through...

...it's finally time to head back home... we have to go through Parkes, so if you look at my map you realize we just went in a really big square type shape... amazing isn't it? Especially done in one day, we're as tired as it seems! Write again soon!

Orange, NSW, Australia - 30th April 2009

By: sararingham

We're finally back home... I think it took just this long to recover from 11 hours of being on the road... it's been a crazy last week but has been relaxing for us toyvoyagers. Sara says to quickly pack our bags because we are back on the road again today... we get another visitor this time as well... Rob Dyrduck has come and visited us just in time! Write again soon!

Lake Burrendong, NSW, Australia - 30th April 2009

By: sararingham

We took a trip today to Wellington, which is on the Orange-side of Dubbo... around 45 minutes outside of Dubbo. Thankfully we weren't going that far... it was only 1pm and it had already been a long day... but we packed ourselves into the car and took off towards Wellington. Sadly the job in Wellington took a bit longer than expected so we didn't get any photos whilst in Wellington... fortunately there's not much to see in Wellington...

So Sara decided to take us to one of the lakes in this area... there aren't many natural lakes... this is the first one she's ever been to... it's called Lake Burrendong... sadly because it was getting so late we couldn't go down to the lake... it would have cost us $8.00 to get down there. Which normally isn't a lot, but when all you're doing is taking photos... it's quite a bit of money. So in the mean time we got a photo of us next to the lake...

Hopefully we'll get to stop there again sometime when the sun isn't setting behind us! Write again soon! :-)

Sülfeld, Germany - 21st May 2009

By: RikeH

Dear Mum,

i just want to let you know, that I arrived in Germany at Rike’s place.

Here is a photo of me in the garden in a beautiful bush.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_6906.jpg

Here you see the other TVs, saying hello to me and Bree. It was a warm Welcome, and the right time to arrive. Three of the TVs will travel to their next destinations this week-end. So Rike planned a nice party with many games. Now, that I arrived – it is a Farewell and a Welcome-Party. Great !

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_6883.jpg

For the Party we had two teams. I am in the team for the small TVs.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_6885.jpg

First we played billiard. That is not easy….so we moved the billiard cue together.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_6888.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_6889.jpg

The next game was darts. Rike told us, that it is not the goal to be photographed on the darts, but we loved to sit there. We all tried to have a 180, but that is not possible for a little ToyVoyager.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_6893.jpg

After these sportive games, we played a game, named Ligretto. It is a very fast game and we had so much fun !

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_6897.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_6900.jpg

Our referee was a very funny Toy – it is called long hippo. He counted all the points from the different games and believe it or not, we are all winners.  What a wonderful evening.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_6905.jpg

On Saturday Super Grover, Murph and Cassandra will leave us, but I am sure, that I will have a nice time with Lupus-Tigger, Kunigunde and Bree.

Bye
Penny

Cobh , Ireland - 27th May 2009

By: RikeH

Good morning from Ireland,

Today the ship stopped in Cobh. When the ship started his way to the next port, we all were out. First we saw another Cruise Ship, then we had a nice view over Cobh. After it we saw the pool of the ship and played a round of Shuffleboard.

Liverpool, England - 29th May 2009

By: RikeH

A day in sunny Liverpool,

Today we are in the beautiful town of Liverpool. I didn’t know, that there are so many beautiful buildings ! Great !!! First you see some of them.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7236.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7237.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7243.jpg

Then we made a trip with this funny vehicle – it can drive on the streets and swim in the water. A lot of fun, although the people speak a strange English….

Belfast , Northern Ireland - 30th May 2009

By: RikeH

Today we were in Belfast – we made a nice trip with a bus – and saw a lot of this interesting city. This is the Parliament – some miles away from the town center.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7343.jpg

Now there are photos of the town and inside a market hall.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7371.jpg

After that we went into the botanical garden. Many people enjoyed the sun – but only I was able to enjoy it in this beautiful flower !

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7376.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7383.jpg

When we were back on board, we played on the ‘ships’ in the bathroom.

Stornoway, Scotland - 1st June 2009

By: RikeH

A nice day on the Hebrides
Today we rent a car and drove over the Isle of Lewis. We saw these wonderful black houses, and visited one. From the village we had this nice view.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7525.jpg

Later we drove to the standing Stones. They were wonderful – and really huge.

MS Astor, On the Sea - 4th June 2009

By: RikeH

Now I want to show you the ship.

This is one of the lounges – called the Captain’s Club, but we didn’t see the Captain.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7769.jpg

Here we are at the moment – somewhere around Great Britain.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7773.jpg

That is the way we had to run, when there would be an alarm – and the last photo shows the way to our cabin.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7785.jpg

In the evening we went outside and took these wonderful photos !

MS Astor, On the Sea - 6th June 2009

By: RikeH

Hi Mum,

Today is our last day on board. We had a tournament of fencing. The winner will get a cake and some sweets. It was a hard fight.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7809.jpg

Kunigunde and I were in the final…

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7811.jpg

…but then we all decided, that it is much nicer to have the cake and the sweets together.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7812.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7814.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7815.jpg


After eating all these things, we went out for a last walk, because our cruise will end tomorrow. We saw a wonderful sunset – and then a beautiful sky.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7846.jpg

I really loved this cruise – when can I do my next, Mum?

yours Penny
