at home, Germany - 12th October 2009

By: Hummel

Hello,

my friend Tobbi is a ToyVoyager - and I saw his first photos on the ToyVoyagers-Side.

Now I want to become a ToyVoyager, too.

Let me introduce myself - and some of my friends. I am a little cow and love to party. Sometimes I talk to much, but most people don't understand cowish....

I want to show you my home. We have nice flowers here.

A funny pair of children - they always sit under their umbrellas.

And I love to hang around with the two Clowns.

Hope to see you soon,
Fiete

Bedford Nova Scotia, Canada - 29th October 2009

By: Rennire

Hello Again!
I have arrived in Canada at last! It sure feels good to be out of that envelope! I've already met another TV, his name is Ferda and he is from Czech Republic!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4014.jpg

I showed him my postcards and told him all about Germany.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4017.jpg

Then he gave me a tour of my host's new house. It was pretty messy!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4022.jpg

We met a horse downstairs and he gave us a ride! Wee!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4025.jpg

We also met a friendly witch!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4042.jpg

And she gave us some Halloween candy early!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4040.jpg

After that we went outside to play.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4028.jpg

There are still some pretty coloured leaves on the trees.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4018.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4029.jpg

Once we had used up all of our energy we went back inside and spent the afternoon looking out the window.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4035.jpg

I can't wait to see more of this place!

Bye for now!

Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Canada - 29th October 2009

By: Rennire

Hello!

I made my first trip out today! We went to an old cemetery called Mt. Olivet.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/IMG_6253.jpg

It is special because this is where some of the people who died on the Titanic were buried.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/IMG_6254.jpg

We followed the signs.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/IMG_6257.jpg

Here it is!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/IMG_6269.jpg

There is another Titanic gravesite in the city that is much bigger. This one is where the Catholic people were buried.  The graves are all the same here.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/IMG_6258.jpg

Here is some information about it:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/IMG_6262.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/IMG_6268.jpg

A lot of the stones do not have names on them because when the ship sank these people had nothing that could be used to identify them.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/IMG_6263.jpg

This one has a name. It's Wenzel Linhard. He was a 3rd class passenger from Austria and was 32 when he died.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/IMG_6267.jpg

It was starting to rain so we didn't stay very long. It was very interesting though!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/IMG_6266.jpg



Bye for now!

Bedford Nova Scotia, Canada - 31st October 2009

By: Rennire

It's Halloween!

Today Ferda and I had lots of fun playing in the candy bowl while we waited for Trick or Treaters to come to the door!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4087.jpg

Then there was a knock on the door. We were kind of surprised because it was still very early. When we opened it we didn't see children in costumes, we saw Barney! He has come to visit for a while!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4089.jpg

We all decided to help Ren carve some pumpkins.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/IMG_6274.jpg

They were pretty small so it didn't take too long before they were empty!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/IMG_6275.jpg

While Ren cut out her pumpkin's face we helped to separate all of the pumpkin seeds from the pumpkin goo so we could bake them.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4059.jpg

Ren finished her pumpkin!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/IMG_6279.jpg

And the seeds were ready too!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4081.jpg

Yum!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4082.jpg

We went into a dark room to try out Ren's Jack o lantern.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/IMG_6283.jpg

Her mother made a silly face on the other pumpkin!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4055.jpg

After all of that hard work it was time to sneak some candy!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4056.jpg

Then we put the pumpkins on the front step.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4094.jpg

There was a skeleton out there too! Yikes!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4092.jpg

Ren's mother dressed up like a witch to answer the door but she couldn't find her hat!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4072.jpg

We hung out with her for the rest of the evening waiting to give out candy.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4085.jpg

Happy Halloween!

Halifax , Canada - 10th November 2009

By: Rennire

Hello!

Today I went into Halifax to see some of the important buildings there.

I started out a place called Pier 21. Here it is:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4127.jpg

In the old days when people from other countries moved to Canada they often arrived at this building. From here they would board trains like this one and travel west to start their new lives as Canadians.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4115.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4122.jpg

Here are what some of the plaques read:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4132.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4119.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4121.jpg

After that I went to city hall. On the way I saw this statue of Governor Edward Cornwallis. He was the founder of Halifax. A lot of people do not like this man because he was very cruel to the Miíkmaq First Nations people in the area.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4111.jpg

Here I am at City Hall!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4175.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4178.jpg

City Hall is located on a piece of land called the Grand Parade. Here is what you see looking the other way:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4179.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4182.jpg

From the Grand Parade you can see the Old Town Clock. It began keeping time in 1803.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4184.jpg

In Canada November 11th is called Remembrance Day. It is the day to celebrate those who fought in war. This monument is one of the places where people celebrate it in the city. I was there a day early so there was only one poppy wreath to look at. There would be a lot more there now.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4172.jpg

And last but not least this church is special because it is the oldest building in Halifax!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4186.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4187.jpg

Interesting!

I wonder what I will see next?

Point Pleasant Park , Canada - 14th November 2009

By: Rennire

Hello!

Recently the city that I'm staying at experienced the first snow of the season. It was kind of yucky and depressing looking but then it it warmed up a lot and all the snow disappeared!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4107.jpg

We decided to take advantage of the nice weather so Ferda, Barney and I went to a place called Point Pleasant Park.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4190.jpg

It is a great place to see the Atlantic Ocean.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4203.jpg

Facing the other way you can see the big cranes that load and unload cargo ships.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4195.jpg

This area used to be a big military bastion. From here the soldiers could see any ship that was entering the Halifax harbour. There are remains of this all over the park.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4213.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4259.jpg

There are also lots of monuments honouring the military along the water.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4200.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4216.jpg

And there are lots of stories to read about different battles and events.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4210.jpg

Us TV's discovered this little canon and made up our own battle story! (We won of course!)

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4224.jpg

After that we moved away from the water and climbed up a really really big hill!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4226.jpg

At the top of the hill there is a tower!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4240.jpg

(Whew my little legs were tired from the the hill!)

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4232.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4235.jpg

I wonder if there is a princess up there? I called out but didn't get an answer!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4238.jpg

Next we walked to another place where the remains of the fort still stand.  On the way we met some seals!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4243.jpg

Here it is!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4245.jpg

There was a really big cannon here!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4251.jpg

You really can see well from way up here! There are no boats at all today!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4255.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4252.jpg

It was starting to get dark so we made our way back down the hill to catch our bus but we missed it! It was okay though, we just sat on the beach and waited for the next one to come.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4263.jpg

And we watched all of the lights come on across the water.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4274.jpg

It was a really fun day!

Shubenacadie Canal, Canada - 6th December 2009

By: Rennire

Hi!

Recently I travelled to a place called the Shubenacadie Canal. It's located in Dartmouth, a nearby city that's full of lakes. The canals connect all these lakes together and were very important for transportation before there were lots of roads. This part of the canal system is now a park.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4359.jpg

Here's what is on the sign:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4320.jpg

The lake that I started at was small but full of ducks!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4325.jpg

Hello ducks!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4326.jpg

There is a trail along the canal so I took it.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4331.jpg

In the old days this water would have been full of canoes and busy people.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4335.jpg

There used to be simple houses along the water too but there is not much left of them now.  The rocks behind me used to be a small house.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4341.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4337.jpg

There were two bridges across the water. I stopped on this one to have my picture taken.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4343.jpg

The trail is much higher up on this side!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4346.jpg

There used to be a blacksmiths shop behind me here. But once again there is very little left of it today.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4350.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4364.jpg

A squirrel!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4353.jpg

The trail went on forever!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4354.jpg

I ended up back at the small lake but on the other side this time!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4367.jpg

It was fun!

Bye for now!

Halifax Harbour, Canada - 6th December 2009

By: Rennire

Hello!

It was quite chilly here but Barney and I decided to explore the Halifax harbour together. We started at the Historic Properties.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4168.jpg

The Historic Properties are a bunch of old buildings that are used for tourist shops now. But as you can see there are not many tourists this time of year!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4167.jpg

Just past the Historic Properties is a boardwalk that goes along the water. You can see some of downtown Halifax in the background here.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4170.jpg

Here is a statue of Samuel Cunard, a famous shipbuilder who was born here in 1787.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4136.jpg

There is only one boat in today! Ren says that during warmer months this place is full of boats!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4155.jpg

It's empty!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4151.jpg

There is a lighthouse though!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4147.jpg

Barney and I rested a bit and watched to see if any more boats came in, but none did.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4152.jpg

We headed back after that.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4159.jpg

I did see two huge tugboats though!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4163.jpg

Even though there were not a lot of boats it was still very pretty and I had a great time!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v178/rennire/toy%20voyagers/DSCN4162.jpg

Bye for now!

Rehlovice, Czech republic - 11th December 2009

By: misagan

Hi!
Know what?! I arrived to the Czech republic! To Rehlovice exactly. It's a place where Misa's parents live.
I brought some stuff with me from my previous host in Canada. Misa was so glad when I showed her the Smarties wrap. It's her favourite candy! Do you know that in the Czech republic they are called Lentilky? We were actually browsing internet which one is older and it seems Smarties were manufactured sooner than Lentilky. http://www.funtrivia.com/askft/Question72830.html
What a disappointment!  :stare:
Nevertheless, this is me when I arrived:

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn190/misagan/ToyVoyagers/Fiete/PC111490.jpg

Some other mail arrived with me too...
Christmas greeting card from Bulgaria, New Year's greeting card from Ethiopia, postcards from Iraq, postcard from Georgia, envelope from Algeria, advertisements and statement of current account  :cyclops:

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn190/misagan/ToyVoyagers/Fiete/PC111492.jpg

I took a look in Misa's room and look what I found! Stickers with my friend's Barney pictures! It seems I am visiting his mentor!  What a coincidence! :cyclops:
Misa told me she received them from Barney's host Olgamaus. They are so cute!

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn190/misagan/ToyVoyagers/Fiete/PC111495.jpg

After that I went for a ride on a strange thing. It was buzzing all the time but the ride was pretty cool!

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn190/misagan/ToyVoyagers/Fiete/PC111496.jpg

In the evening Misa prepared a welcome drink for me! It's called Banana Republic! What a funny name!

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn190/misagan/ToyVoyagers/Fiete/PC111497.jpg

It's made of mixed bananas. Well... they are quite exotic. But to tell truth I am not sure I want to fulfill one of my life missions with this ...  :stare:

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn190/misagan/ToyVoyagers/Fiete/PC111498.jpg

Well, let's wait with my life missions... and cheers!

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn190/misagan/ToyVoyagers/Fiete/PC111499.jpg

Hugs,
Fiete

Rehlovice, Czech republic - 12th December 2009

By: misagan

Hey!

Today I was working on one of my life mission. I went through Misa's wallet (yeah, I know it's kinda impolite...  :( ...) and guess what I found there! Three different czech banknotes!
I willingly sat on all of them...
They are nice, aren't they?

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn190/misagan/ToyVoyagers/Fiete/PC120001.jpg

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn190/misagan/ToyVoyagers/Fiete/PC120002.jpg

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn190/misagan/ToyVoyagers/Fiete/PC120003.jpg

Later I found another banknote, but you probably know it. :)

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn190/misagan/ToyVoyagers/Fiete/PC120004.jpg

I forgot to sit on 10 Euro banknote but I was aware that you are very familiar with this banknote.... LOL! :cyclops:

But maybe you don't know these two banknotes...
This one is from Ghana:

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn190/misagan/ToyVoyagers/Fiete/PC120005.jpg

and this one is from Bangladesh:

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn190/misagan/ToyVoyagers/Fiete/PC120006.jpg

At the end I wanted to show you the back sides of all banknotes...

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn190/misagan/ToyVoyagers/Fiete/PC120007.jpg

When I was satisfied with all that money I moved to kitchen and helped Misa with one type of Christmas candy.
Misa's mother baked it and we finished it.
At first we had to make pairs.

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn190/misagan/ToyVoyagers/Fiete/PC120008.jpg

Then every pair paste with marmelade.

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn190/misagan/ToyVoyagers/Fiete/PC120010.jpg

And then pour it with lime frosting and let it dry.

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn190/misagan/ToyVoyagers/Fiete/PC120011.jpg

Misa supervised me all the time so I couldn't taste a lot!

The next Saturday we continue with the Christmas candy! I can't wait! Hopefully I'll taste more!

Bye for now,

Fiete

Rehlovice, Czech republic - 19th December 2009

By: misagan

Hi mom!

Today I continued with pre-Christmas preparations! I helped Misa with gingerbread decorating.
At first we had to make different colors...

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn190/misagan/ToyVoyagers/Fiete/PC190026.jpg

And then we were drawing and drawing... here is a sample of some finished gingerbreads. We were having fun!

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn190/misagan/ToyVoyagers/Fiete/PC200031.jpg

We also made another type of Christmas candy. It's called wasp nest. We didn't have to bake it so we finished quickly. It's really yummy!

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn190/misagan/ToyVoyagers/Fiete/PC200033.jpg

I think I will have good time here during Christmas. They have so much food and all different candies! I am never hungry :)

Your,
Fiete

Prague, Czech republic - 21st December 2009

By: misagan

Hi mom!

I haven't told you yet that Misa has a new work. Today she took me there for a while. Not because of showing her workplace (maybe later) but because of nice view from window.
She works in a tall building with beautiful panorama. The building is even the tallest in the Czech republic!!! and is called The City Tower.
I have seen a sunrise in there!  :cyclops:

From this window we can see:
1) Castle Vysehrad
2) Petrin Lookout Tower
3) Prague castle

They are three interesting places among many others. Unfortunately we can't see them well on the photo because the picture is not as good as we assumed.

When Misa finished her work we had to go to the center organize things... On our way we saw this fantastic building - The Jerusalem Synagogue. It's the youngest and largest synagogue in Prague. It was built in 1906. It's really nice!

In a while we were at a place to pick up Misa's diploma thesis.
Mmmm, looks like interesting reading!  ;)

Unfortunately we had too full hands to walk more in Prague center. Hopefully we manage it later!

Hugs,
Fiete

Hi mom!
Today I saw another baking! They baked a christmas bread called 'vanocka'. I was only watching because I don't know how to plaite it.

It's sweet and there are raisins inside. And on the top are almonds!

When the preparation was finished I helped with pulling vanocka in the oven.
And here it is finished. Now only dredge vanocka with sugar and everything is done.

Bye,
Fiete

Rehlovice, Czech Republic - 24th December 2009

IT'S CHRISTMAS DAY!!!

In the morning Misa's family ususally decorates a Christmas tree. Well, she decorates it alone but it doesn't mind.
Because I am visiting her for Christmas I decided to help her.
But at first we had to play hide and seek.

Where am I? :)

Later we started with decorating. We had some glass balls and some decorations made from straw....
I am a very cute decoration as well!

During the day we watched fairy tales on TV. The Czechs always watch fairy tales at Christmas and there are several ones that are broadcasted every year.
There were also big preparations for Christmas Eve's dinner.
In the Czech Republic they usually eat fried carp and potato salad.
Because Misa's father has roots in Slovakia where they also eat a soup made from dried mushrooms and sour cream, is this soup also part of Christmas Eve table.
Another family habit is to eat a garlic clove to stay healthy. Fortunately they didn't insist on one clove for me. I feel healthy enough!

And after the dinner we moved to the living room and under the Christmas tree there were some gifts!
In the Czech republic the gifts brings Christ-child.

Happy Christmas!

Dubice, Czech Republic - 26th December 2009

By: misagan

Hi mom!

Today we went for a short walk. I want to show you something!

We arrived at the place in the afternoon but as it is usual in winter, it was almost dark. I saw the moon at least!

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn190/misagan/ToyVoyagers/Fiete/PC260062.jpg

We are in Dubice. It's a village on the hills above Rehlovice and there stands a church from where is wonderful view on Ceske Stredohori (Bohmische Mittelgebirge) and Elbe River.

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn190/misagan/ToyVoyagers/Fiete/PC260066.jpg

The valley of Elbe River is very beautiful, especially in spring. It's a very romantic place and is sometimems called "Porta Bohemica" eg. A Gate to Bohemia.

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn190/misagan/ToyVoyagers/Fiete/PC260067.jpg

If we sail this way down the river we would be shortly in Germany! This is  so exciting!

http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn190/misagan/ToyVoyagers/Fiete/PC260069.jpg

That's so pity we didn't make a boat trip on the Elbe!  :thinking:
Even thought it would be quite chilly these days on the river...
We said "Good Bye" to the moon on the sky and returned home.

Your,
Fiete
