Sülfeld, Germany - 11th August 2009

By: RikeH

Hi Mum,

today I arrived at Rike’s home. There were some TVs so I had a warm welcome. First I met Dicker Kumpel.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/IMG_9400.jpg

Then I met the other TVs Meleka, Murph, Pinkz and Rhinono.

After talking about my trip I wanted to exlore the garden.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/IMG_9412.jpg

Look – there is  a nice monster in the fountain – it is so funny to live in the water  - but maybe  a good idea, when it is hot.

Bad Oldesloe, Germany - 15th August 2009

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

We have a new ToyVoyager now. He is called Michel and his Mum is the Mum of RikeH. Isn’t that funny? He arrived today – and brought some sweets. What a nice surprise!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9480.jpg

He just arrived in the right time, because we went to a small city called Bad Oldesloe. We made a nice walk there. Can you see this nice mill-wheel behind me?

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9376.jpg

There are many old houses like this in the city.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9381.jpg

There is a nice small river in the city.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9387.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9388.jpg

Mum, I just found out, that I will become a policeman soon. They have so beautiful cars!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9392.jpg

There was a beautiful fountain in front of the town hall.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9397.jpg

I am so excited – RikeH told us, that we will go to the Zoo soon – and to a birthday.

Greetings
Nippy

Hamburg , Germany - 18th August 2009

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

What a great day. We went to the Zoo of Hamburg today. It is called Hagenbeck and was founded on this place in May 1907 – what a long time!

First we saw the elephants – there are small ones – they are so cute – and they played together.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9423.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9422.jpg

This was the first gate of the Zoo. Now the Zoo is bigger – so the gate is inside the park.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9433.jpg

We saw this funny bird and zebras. A Zoo is really nice, but I prefer to travel around!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9445.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9446.jpg

The giraffes are the biggest animals.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9460.jpg

Look – I saw penguins – it was amazing. They don’t wear a muffler and a cap – but they seem to have a lot of fun swimming around.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9439.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9440.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9467.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9469.jpg

At the end we’ve been in the Aquarium – what a lot of nice and colourful fishes!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9474.jpg

It was a wonderful day in the Zoo  and I met a real pinguin!

yours Nippy

Sülfeld, Germany - 23rd August 2009

By: RikeH

Hello Mum!

I’ve been on a birthday party today. It was a lot of fun – and I ate so much!

First I helped with the barbecue.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9483.jpg

Everything looked so delicious!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9487.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9495.jpg

In the afternoon we get coffee and cakes!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9499.jpg

After it, we sat together and had a lot of fun!

Yours
Nippy

Grabau, Germany - 26th August 2009

By: RikeH

Hi Mum,

We made a trip to a nice little park near to Sülfeld. Here you can see us on a big stone.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9545.jpg

This is a really funny tree.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9527.jpg

We found a small lodge at the lake side. It is a place to watch birds!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9531.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9533.jpg

Can you see me in the tree? (Next to the BIG bird)

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9540.jpg

At the end of the trip, we went to the playground. What a nice place!

By: RikeH

Hi Mum!

We explored Sülfeld today.

First we saw the beautiful church...

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9573.jpg

…this is the old school…

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9576.jpg

...and we found a nice little lake with beautiful flowers.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9580.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9582.jpg

We enjoyed the sun!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9584.jpg

Mum, I would love to send you these wonderful flowers!

That was really great!

Back home Rhinono and Michel told us, that they will leave us now. We all were very sad – and gave them a big hug!

Sülfeld, Germany - 2nd September 2009

By: RikeH

Hi Mum!

We have a new friend here – he is called Orpheus and he comes from Canada.

We gave him a warm welcome and talked a lot !

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9594.jpg

After that I had a great evening. RikeH showed me a movie about her trip to New Zealand last year. They saw penguins there.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9547.jpg

First they were far away – but I was able to see you. Can you see them, too?

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9548.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9549.jpg

Here they were very near to the place, where RikeH stood:

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9554.jpg

Wow – what a wonderful penguin – can we please visit New Zealand, Mum?

The second game was about the Stock Exchange and shares.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_9634.jpg

Hamburg, Germany - 10th September 2009

By: RikeH

Hello Mum!

Today we went to Hamburg, because RikeH wanted to show us the Alster – a nice lake in the middle of the town.

Here you can see a photo of me and one of the group in front of the Alster.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/IMG_9741.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/IMG_9740.jpg

There were some nice geese.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/IMG_9731.jpg

Some views from the other side :

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/IMG_9757.jpg

This is the townhall.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/IMG_9766.jpg

Hamburg is a very beautiful town!

The Hummel is a typical for Hamburg – we made some funny photos on two different Hummel-Men.

Sülfeld, Germany - 11th September 2009

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

Today is my last day here with RikeH. We played in the garden, before I had to leave.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/IMG_9792.jpg

We made a race – only Dicker Kumpel enjoyed the sun.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/IMG_9793.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/IMG_9794.jpg

After it we relaxed in beautiful trees. I really loved them.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/IMG_9799.jpg

It was time to say good-bye. Pinkz will leave with me, so we can travel together.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/IMG_9816.jpg

We get a big hug – and a special good-bye from Dicker Kumpel.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/IMG_9817.jpg

Hi Mummy,
I arrived at my new host's home today. I travelled with Pinkz in a comfortable box.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3525/3931328755_4d81e23330.jpg

We met our new host Katja when she came home in her lunch break. When she had to return to her work place she took us with her to show us the vicinity of our current home.

I already some some nice old houses.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2546/3930769125_abe2bf0759.jpg

The weather is not good, I'm glad that I'm wearing my winter gear.

Remscheid, Germany - 16th September 2009

Hi Mummy,
today the weather was better again. Because Katja is working close to the city hall she showed it to me.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2651/3930769361_57d8c8a781.jpg

The heraldic animal of Remscheid is a lion. On the open space in front of the city hall they have a pillar with a lion on top.

Wuppertal, Germany - 17th September 2009

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
today we made a trip to Wuppertal, which is the neighbour town of Remscheid, famous for the worldwide one and only Monorail Suspension Railway (Schwebebahn). Wuppertal is the largest city of the region "Bergisches Land" with about 355.000 inhabitants.

We met Katja's friend BlackCat here. BlackCat had tickets for a concert in the evening, it will take place in a stone pit. The main act is Razorlight, the German band Kilians will be performing first.

But it was only afternoon and so we took a walk around the city.

Here is a first photo taken from the bus station with a first view across the city centre.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2548/3931553138_7a2654e76d.jpg

When you enter the city centre the first thing to see is the Schwebebahn.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2445/3931553208_2b7a841127.jpg

The trains are coming in and out every five minutes.

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.

We walked into the city centre than. Here we are in front of one of the shopping malls.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2521/3930769637_63f8dbe03f.jpg

We took a group photograph here, next to a funny fountain. I am sitting here with my new friends Pinkz, Mister_Right, Barney and the TVs which are travelling with BlackCat.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2663/3931569682_8346c6be5d.jpg

In the shopping mall they have an exhibition showing desert animals. Katja soon found her favourite. It is not a reptile but a furry one.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2562/3931553348_962a659160.jpg

A sand rat. Katja loves rats, she is keeping pet rats herself.

The next photo is showing the city hall with a market place and a large fountain in front of it.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2622/3931553410_33f26a46eb.jpg

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3465/3930769827_256ea59daa.jpg

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2615/3930769881_4a78c410b7.jpg

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3483/3931553636_8c08e037d5.jpg

We walked along the pedestrian area than.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2428/3931553710_6f4c117bbe.jpg

I saw this funny statue here. It's name is "A new day at work". I have never see you doing a handstand before going to work, Mummy. Katja says she would also be going to work with doing it every morning.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2666/3930770167_e8a6151b2e.jpg

"Luisenviertel" is a pretty quarter with lots of bars and restaurants.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2459/3930770261_187da5eb71.jpg

I met another penguin here. He was one of the participants of the "Pinguinale 2006", a celebration for the zoo of Wuppertal which was 125 years old than. All over the city centre they had beautifully painted large penguins. There was a large final showing all the penguins in the zoo. Here you can see more photos of the Pinguinale 2006.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2527/3931553874_039f9ed538.jpg

We decided to walk along river Wupper for a while.

So here is the Schwebebahn again ...

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2643/3930770331_8f79a62e29.jpg

This is one of the most modern stopping points.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2481/3931554072_b3153860d1.jpg

We went inside the train station to have a look at the incoming trains.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2653/3931554128_954776594e.jpg

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2662/3931554196_2d5240949a.jpg

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3430/3930770719_8f3a58c85d.jpg

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2475/3930770591_80f997d70f.jpg

The Schwebebahn is crossing the streets at some points.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2541/3931554452_cdd859301b.jpg

We reached a quarter where the worldwide known chemical industry concern Bayer is situated. Pharmaceuticals are produced here.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2528/3931554516_006a012b5e.jpg

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2460/3931554586_25177dd92f.jpg

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3420/3930770951_d4542d8d05.jpg

We decided to take a ride with the Schwebebahn to get to the concert.

We were waiting for our train.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3506/3931569850_93b95ea5c7.jpg

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2463/3931554702_79d8f2dcac.jpg

The concertgoers cannot get to the stone pit themselves, they will be taken there by shuttle bus.
