Kellinghusen, Germany - 9th August 2010

By: babyamy

Today this brown envelope arrived and when Katrin read the letter, she started to scream and jumped around her room.

What the letter said? Katrin got a positive answer from the university in Leipzig where she is going to study the next two years to get her master degree.
The letter also brought bad news: Since Katrin will move to Leipzig in September, she can't take care of more than two TVs anymore because the next weeks will be very busy.
I was the first one who jumped in to my box to travel back home to Austria.

Graz, Austria - 15th August 2010

By: marcie08

Hello World!

I'm back home in Austria now and met my mom's toyvoyager guests. There was also another new guest, Truska, a pink bunny!

The others showed me their souvenirs from the vacation and then we looked at the pictures.

Melbourne , Australia - 25th October 2010

By: allison

When I arrived in Melbourne, it was grand final weekend and everyone was very excited about Aussie Rules Football.  Sadly the match ended in a draw and had to be played again the next weekend.
People come from all over Australia to see the football in Melbourne. It is an amazing cultural event.  Everyone gets involved, as you can see from this newspaper front page.

Sülfeld, Germany - 7th April 2011

By: RikeH

Hi Mum,

a big surprise - here I am  - your Lupus-Tigger!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/Tigger1.jpg

Yes - I lost some weight, but I am on the road again. Look, I met Dicker Kumpel again - we met each other about two years ago.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/Tigger2.jpg

I went outside into the garden to see some flowers.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0488.jpg

Hey - this is a funny guy...

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0491.jpg

Now I am sitting on the big chair - just like two years ago and talk with other Toys.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0493.jpg

RikeH told me that I will be a part of the European ToyVoyager Trail - this is great.

Love your
Lupus-Tigger

Travemünde, Germany - 10th April 2011

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

we went to the Baltic Sea - to a place called Travemünde. The weather was really nice in the morning.
We walked along the beach.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0504.jpg

There were beautiful buildings.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0505.jpg

We had a delicious dinner in this funny chair.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0513.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0512.jpg

Later the weather was a little cloudy, but no problem for a ToyVoyager.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0523.jpg

This is the oldest lighthouse of Germany,  but it was not open.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0521.jpg

Behind me is a big hotel, we should spend some time here, Mum.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0522.jpg

Look - this is the photo of the afternoon - it was so windy!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0534.jpg

The trainstation of Travemünde is funny, on the tower you can see, when the next train to Lübeck will leave.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0542.jpg

At home we had delicious muffins.

Sülfeld, Germany - 19th April 2011

By: RikeH

Hi Mum,

the last weekend RikeH showed me Sülfeld. It is springtime and I saw a lot of nice flowers and blossoms in different colors.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0568.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0573.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0574.jpg

This is the old school.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0580.jpg

The mayor lives here.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0583.jpg

I liked this beautiful door.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0585.jpg

This is the nice church of Sülfeld.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0587.jpg

On the way back we found some more flowers.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0576.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0578.jpg

Today is my last day here - I will travel to my next host.

I said goodbye to Dicker Kumpel. He is such a nice guy.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0601.jpg

I will really miss him.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0600.jpg

All the TVs here gave me a big hug.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0602.jpg

Now I am on my way to the next host.

Love
Lupus-Tigger

Remscheid, Germany - 23rd April 2011

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
I arrived in Remscheid today.

When my new host Katja found me sitting on the stairs, she took me with her immediately, visiting a friend for the evening (Katja's daughter was celebrating her birthday this evening -  no parents allowed :D ).

Wuppertal, Germany - 23rd April 2011

By: olgamaus

In the late afternoon we went to Wuppertal, the neighbour city, to take a walk with Katja's friend and her dog. We went to Scharpenacken, which is a former army training area. This area was used for military purposes until 2004 A.D as a shooting range. Today there is a local recreation area with vast open areas.

First I want to show you how all the cars are looking:

This area was used for military purposes until 2004 A.D as a shooting range. Today there is a local recreation area with vast open areas.

They are full of pollen, like everything. Even the air is full of it, our eyes are burning and our noses are running. Really disgusting.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5141/5652626399_e3d6f65696_o.jpg

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5222/5653194138_305ffa4266_o.jpg

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5070/5652626599_e682588a1d_o.jpg

In the background you can see a villa quarter. You can find the beautiful mansions of some factory owners here, for example the mansion of the Vorwerk family. Katja told me that there is wonderful country park which once belonged to their villa, it is open for the public for a few years now. Maybe we will visit the park some other time.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5262/5653194310_57a38dec52_o.jpg

This is the highest point of this area, it is extremely windy here. Some people are here with their kites.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5267/5652626745_38ce4e64bf_o.jpg

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5225/5653194538_b4f9b3a1c2_o.jpg

A motorway is running along the valley and a new prison is built behind the trees. Katja told me it was visible in winter when the building site was fully illuminated.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5103/5652627009_e32b0840c7_o.jpg

It is so warm that already lots of flowers are blooming on the grassland.

Remscheid, at home, Germany - 28th April 2011

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
yesterday it started raining. Usually nobody likes rain, but Katja told us that everyone was waiting for rain after some sunny and warm weeks. She said if we wanted our lakes filled and the nature green, we would need rain.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5306/5668737193_02be08939f_o.jpg

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5106/5669308604_550596a3e6_o.jpg

It's my host's birthday and she had to prepare dinner for her friends who visited us in the evening. Our host is a (almost :) ) veggie, so we had to make lots of delicious vegetable dishes - not perfect for a tiger!

First I helped to fill mushroom heads with cream cheese.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5146/5668737479_9ae23979a0_o.jpg

This was quite easy. The mushrooms will be baked later.

Than Katja took meatballs out of the fridge - yummy!

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5104/5669308664_538ffe0b10_o.jpg

I wanted nothing more than to eat them immediately!

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5305/5668737403_f85e277197_o.jpg

Katja bought tons of different cheese.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5108/5669311972_9f7f028ce3_o.jpg

This looks like a good party!

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5304/5668737547_f9790aff95_o.jpg

In the meantime the cheese tray was nearly ready. We had cheese from Spain, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands and of course Germany.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5022/5669308892_2e058134dc_o.jpg

Katja's daughter is a cook in a restaurant (not yet, her final examination will be in May and June). She prepared gravlax, the half of a salmon. Although I am not a bear, I like salmon.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5261/5668737673_6fc730fb93_o.jpg

Finally everything was ready and the guest were here. Now it's time to celebrate, not for taking photos :D

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5141/5669308996_bbe3bd5c90_o.jpg

A friend brought this plate with antipasti - delicious!

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5066/5669309054_c664c79524_o.jpg

Wuppertal, Germany - 1st May 2011

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,

today we visited Wuppertal. Wuppertal is the neighbour town of Remscheid, famous for the Monorail Suspension Railway (Schwebebahn). The suspension railway travels along a route about 13 kilometres long, about 12 metres above the surface of the river Wupper and approximately 8 m above the city streets. At one point the railway even crosses the A46 motorway. The entire trip takes about 30 minutes.

Two thirds of the total municipal area is green belt: Woods, meadows, gardens and fields. From any part of the city it is only a ten-minute walk to one of the public parks or shady woodland paths.

When we got out of the bus we immediately saw the Schwebebahn.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5105/5676545774_152d32b85b_o.jpg

Katja told us that we would visit the botanical garden and the city centre. On the next photo you can see one of the stops of the Schwebebahn in the background.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5104/5676545912_2bcfb3693a_o.jpg

A train passed by!

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5225/5676546158_c5a9693342_o.jpg

Wuppertal is situated in the valley of the river Wupper, the city centre is in the bottom of the valley, the botanical garden is on top of the slope of the valley, on a hill called "Hardt". On our way there we walked along the local court and the district court.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5101/5675984397_250e454328_o.jpg

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5109/5675984615_15ec0cbb80_o.jpg

There is also a Schwebebahn stop at the district court, it is rebuilt at the the moment in it's original historic style.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5069/5675984787_1011edeecf_o.jpg

There is a sign showing the way to the botanical garden. Katja told us that more than 400 stairs are built into the slopes of the valley, so pedestrians can get easily uphill. She also told us that we would have to walk some of them today :) Here is the first one ...

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5029/5676546976_e5a62cd2a8_o.jpg

...and another one.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5303/5676547140_a59097bf6b_o.jpg

We needed about 15 minutes to reach the botanical garden. There are large greenhouses in the entrance area. The botanical garden was founded in 1890 as a school garden.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5145/5676547298_35b9bb6faf_o.jpg

You can find the former country house of textile manufacturers named Eller, which contained a villa (built 1820), orangery, residential and farm buildings, and the Elise Tower (built 1838) which provides the garden's focal point.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5264/5675985483_faa8f1d2d0_o.jpg

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5188/5675986245_95c91a1d5e_o.jpg

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5027/5676547774_ba2f89bb6f_o.jpg

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5224/5676547908_e66fa04fa1_o.jpg

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5263/5676548096_1134f7a06b_o.jpg

Here you can see the Elise Tower once more.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5263/5675986767_ffa900f225_o.jpg

I saw this funny looking Handkerchief-tree, also known as Dove tree.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5261/5676548512_a6c1ef0b4b_o.jpg

Than we walked through the large Hardt park, back to the city.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5226/5675986945_cf2930fbc2_o.jpg

Flowers like a carpet :)

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5302/5675987377_de1bc163e8_o.jpg

We rested here near this fountain.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5141/5676046009_ed96cee205_o.jpg

Than it was time to walk downhill, back to the city centre.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5066/5676549412_191efb582b_o.jpg

We walked through a lovely housing area.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5189/5676549700_7f444b9613_o.jpg

Soon we reached the city centre with the city hall, the building with the tower.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5030/5676549868_4348bb4fc1_o.jpg

In front of the city hall you can find this historic fountain.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5069/5675988355_1f50b567c8_o.jpg

We walked along the pedestrian area.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5064/5675988567_d119bba7d7_o.jpg

What a funny statue! It is called "A new day at work".

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5302/5676550638_86453acb54_o.jpg

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5265/5676550842_4885624a0e_o.jpg

We went back to the river Wupper. Here you can see another Schwebebahn stop. Every stop is built in a completely different style. This one is a very modern one.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5104/5676551398_941575de52_o.jpg

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5067/5676551690_c3f35e3bb1_o.jpg

Next to the modern stop you can find this old bridge.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5107/5675990129_58f6f7e489_o.jpg

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5141/5675990409_6709dfac26_o.jpg

This stop is the central stop in the city centre Elberfeld, it is built like a station with shops and bars in the basement.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5267/5675990619_45a6cac70d_o.jpg

Here is another historical bridge.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5069/5680385354_e74c3dc2e9_o.jpg

This distinctive building is the company building of a savings bank. Its skywalk is leading to another building, crossing two different streets.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5223/5676552738_a27ac51eb6_o.jpg

Here is the other building, the tower is mirroring in the reflective frontage.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5183/5675991015_2e71079499_o.jpg

I love this work of art :)

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5222/5675991383_065ef7336c_o.jpg

Here is another stair to climb.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5063/5675991659_85300c609d_o.jpg

From here we had a good overview across the city.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5267/5675991799_83e89539da_o.jpg

Here you can see the historical concert hall.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5308/5676554004_bd9248b6a5_o.jpg

-------------

We had actually planned to take the bus home, but because the weather was so great we decided to walk towards home and take the bus later. We had to walk uphill for some time than, Katja knew a short cut across the university area.

Here were not only stairs to walk uphill, but also a large bridge, enabling you to cross one or two streets. In the background you can already see the university buildings.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5106/5675992159_73d480620d_o.jpg

More stairs to walk on the university ground ...

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5062/5676554400_a9ba9a9f50_o.jpg

The university was built in the early 1970s years.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5301/5675992585_db8cd7f3b0_o.jpg

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5190/5675992709_135a0642ef_o.jpg

When we walked further uphill, we could see the university in it's whole monstrosity.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5303/5676046351_91f4fa3b4c_o.jpg

When we reached the top of the hill we had missed the bus for only three minutes, so we decided to walk a bit further. Here on the communication-road to Remscheid I liked it much more.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5146/5676555298_1d3b264ba9_o.jpg

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5026/5675993425_5fc5804d26_o.jpg

Here we finally waited for our bus. In the background you can see the city centre of Remscheid, also situated on a hill, about 10 km apart.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5262/5675993557_cb49622517_o.jpg

I will also show you a zoomed photo. One of the two characteristic towers belong to the city hall, the other one is a water tower.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5301/5676609872_67cc36678b_o.jpg

This was an exciting trip!

Remscheid, Germany - 5th May 2011

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
today we took a short walk in the city centre when Katja went to buy some things in her lunch break.

At the beginning of the shopping street you can find this large sculpture, showing two forceps as a symbol for the tool producing industry here.
