Moscow area, Luberci, Russia - 4th October 2009

By: TaisAfinskaia

Hello everyone!
My name is Blinchick which in Russian means pancake. Maria created this name when she was eating pancakes.  :stare:
Maria and I have been together since the middle of September - before I was in other house and my previouse owner repudiated me  :(
But everything is for the best! Now I`m with Maria and she will make me a ToyVoyager! It`s great and I`m very-very happy bear!
Now it`s very cold in Russia and it is getting colder and colder - that`s why I dream about warm country and sea... but I dream about other countries too! Maria was in Switzerland and in Italy and Hungary and she told that it was great. I want there too!!!!

My travel plan:
November 2009 - Germany with RikeH. Had much fun and have seen the sea! Many thanks to you RikeH!
December 2009 - Canada with Lisag123! Lisa thank you much for Christmas holidays!
February and March 2010 - USA with tarepanda!

The view from my window is not very interesting. I wonder if there is any other window-views?

Hi Mum!

Today I arrived in Sülfeld at RikeH’s home.

Dicker Kumpel gave me a warm welcome !


Then he introduced me to Mystery and Hugo.


After it I explored the house and searched for other bears. Here is the first one:


…not a bear, but a very friendly guy..


Some more friends for me – I think, I will like it here!

Hamburg, Germany - 18th October 2009

By: RikeH

Hi Mum!

We watched a match of handball today. Here you see us on the way to the statium.


On the way we saw this funny garden – full of garden gnomes.


Next to the handball statium is the soccer stadium, where the famous HSV plays.


This was the stadium we went into to see the match from the HSV against Zagreb Croatia.


You see all of us on our seat.


It was so interesting!


We won!!! What a great evening!

yours Blinchick

Sülfeld, Germany - 24th October 2009

By: RikeH

Hello Mum!

Today Cilly arrived. And it was just the right time, because we wanted to go with lanterns in the evening. First we said hello to Cilly.


We had a big discussion, which lantern we wanted.

The big moon?


or the beautiful flowers?


We all loved the sun, too.


We didn’t know what to do, so we took all of them with us.

Here you can see me – with a flash....


But this was really great – to see the lantern in the dark!


We walked and we sang great songs – what a nice evening!

yours Blinchick

Bad Oldesloe, Germany - 28th October 2009

By: RikeH

Hello Mum!

We visited Bad Oldesloe – a small town near to Sülfeld. RikeH went to school there – many years ago...

There is a nice island..


...and a beautiful river.


I made some horseback-riding.


Here is another part of the river – with troubled water.


We had to wait for a receipt at the doctor’s. But it was not boring – you know, Toyvoyagers can talk and talk and talk....


The last think we saw, before we drove home was the town hall.

Hamburg, Germany - 29th October 2009

By: RikeH

Dear Mum,

one of my life-missions is “See the sea”. RikeH told me that Tobias, a friend of her, wants to travel to Sylt, an island inside the North Sea.

So I went to Hamburg today to meet Tobias. He showed me a photo ablum and told me something about Sylt:
- Sylt is one of the Northfriesland Islands in the northern part of Germany in the North Sea
- Length: 38 km km, width: 12 km; highest point: 53 m (Uwes Düne)
- connection to the continent by train over the Hindenburg Dam, by plane or ferry
- largest German island in the North Sea, 4th largest island of the county








I'm so exited what’s to see there!

Yours Blinchick

Sylt, Germany - 30th October 2009

By: RikeH

Moin Mum,

do you ever have heard "moin", Mum? That means in Friesland "hello".

Today I had to travel a lot to go to the sea. First Tobias and I took the underground in Hamburg to go to the railwaystation.



There we changed into a national train to Westerland, Sylts main town. On the way I saw meadows and fields and I crossed over the Kiel-Chanel, the most used built waterway of the world. Here I enjoyed the beautifull coloured countryside of Schleswig Holstein, Germanys northest federal state.





Before the train arrives in Westerland it has to cross over the Hindenburg Dam. On both sides of the dam you normally see the North Sea ... but today, Mum, it was dark so I couldn’t see the water.


In Westerland we changed our transport again and took the bus to Wenningstedt. There we walked to the beach. I was sure I wouldn't see the water but I wanted to hear rustling the sea when the water runs up and down the beach.There I first found a bank but it was to far away from the sand. So I climbed down and built with sand a small castle where I sat down to listen to the sea. Here, Mum, you see me at the beach ... beautiful!






When I enjoyed the fresh and healthy air of the North Sea I met two boys. They walked along the beach with their lanterns and lighted it up for me. We hoped to see the water by that way ... but it didn't work.  :(




In this case it was nice to meet the children they tried to help me to see the sea at my first evening. Afterwards I went to our hotel. Now I was waiting for tomorrow!

Yours Blinchick

Sylt, Germany - 31st October 2009

By: RikeH

Moin Mum,

after breathing the fine North Sea air the evening before I slept very well. Now Tobias and I startet our walk to the beach. Here you see a postcard of the island:


On the way to the beach we passed a typical Friesland house with a reeds covered roof and wonderful blossoming roses.



There is the entrance to the beach ... that's not far away! Before I entered the beach I saw a map of Sylt. Mum, I stay these days in Wenningstedt, the railway station you find in Westerland - look here!




Mum, Mum!! Now I could see the water! Look there, the beach and the North Sea!!




At the beach I met again the two boys I saw yesterday evening. They called Finn und Jan. Today they didn't walk alone along the beach, their bear Bobo accompanied them. It was nice to talk to an other bear far away from home.



It was so exeting at the water. I saw sea gulls, jellyfishs and shells there. The waves came and left - so I jumped up when the water nearly reaches the beach and landed when the water was flowed away. That was so funny! It was so beautiful at the beach!!!








Later I saw a wooden beach cabin and two children repairing it ... I knew them, they were Finn and Jan again! They had found a damaged cabin with a caved in roof and broken walls. I helped the boys to back up  the roof and build up the wall. Later in the day we nearly built a "new" house.





On the way back to the hotel I had a break on a wall of rocks, at the sea it is called breakwater. There I saw living mussels which adhered to the stone. During the break I saw a sunset – it wasn’t a coloured one but it looked nice.





In the evening Tobias and I went to a fish restaurant because I wanted to eat fish at the sea. The fish soup as well as the main course tasted very well.



Good night, Mum!

Sylt, Germany - 1st November 2009

By: RikeH

Moin Mum,

in the morning I walked along the beachside where I saw sea gulls again.


After walking a while along the coast I noticed a ship-wreck which lies at the beach. First I was flustered and I wanted to call the police but then I realised it is a playground.



Normally the dunes should be crowed over by grass so the wind and the waves couldn't wash away the sand. Here everything is fine:




Other parts of the coast are damaged by the water when the rough sea crashed into the edge of the dunes and flushed out the sand:


Terrible destroyed is the Red Cliff by Kampen. Here the edge partly looks as somebody had cutted the ground with a knife. The administration tries to rebuild the countryside with replanting grass and erecting sand-catching-fences to keep the sand at the beach.







After travelling to Westerland we locked our luggage at the railway station. Then Tobias and I strolled through the town. Here, Mum, you see the upper part of the Friedrichstaße, the main shopping street. Nearby is a fountain that is called Wilhelmine. Another life mission is “Collect kisses from 15 different girls”. First I thought to swim to Wilhelmine to collect a kiss but then I decided to go for a walk through the Friedrichstraße. In November it is off-season so most of the shops are closed on Sunday … so there were not such a lot of tourists going around. At the end of the street is an art-gallery. Through the window I saw a painting with an old sailing ship. I though it must be very interesting to sail over the oceans with such an old ship. I asked myself what would be happen when a sailor falls into the water.






At the lower part of the Friedrichstraße at the end you see the entrance to the promenade. Here stay beach-chairs, something special at Germanys coasts. Beach-chairs are covered seats which protects against wind, sun and rain. In the centre of the promenade is a music-shell - in the summer an orchestra plays music there. Beside you can see MS Kaatje with a length of 7 m. Before it was taken out of service it was a rescue boat of the DGzRS, the German Society to rescue shipwrecked Persons. Now I knew there would be help if there is a disaster in the North Sea.








Afterwards I went back to the railway station. On the way saw a beautiful car, a Porsche Boxter S. It must be nice to drive in the summer with the convertible through the beautiful countyside of Sylt. In front of the railway station-building stands modern art: a "family" which is leant backwards by the storm (or something else):



When I entered my train to Hamburg I saw a cargo-train with open, two-storeyed wagons leaving the railway station. That was the Sylt Shuttle which carries cars and trucks from the continent to the island and back because there is no road between them. I tried to count the numbers of wagons but I couldn’t … the train was sooo long.



After I had taken a seat inside my train I looked out of the window and saw more cars running onto another Sylt Shuttle.




After leaving Westerland Tobias and I travelled back to Hamburg. The train-ride took three hours – each hour took me more away from the sea, the beautiful North Sea. What a pity!

Tomorrow I am going back to RikeH. I'm sure she is in a fever what I have to tell her about my trip to the North Sea.

Yours Blinchick

Sülfeld, Germany - 6th November 2009

By: RikeH

Hi Mum!

Today we will have a party – it is RikeH’s birthday. First we looked at her gifts. Then we sang a wonderful song for her.



These flowers are so beautiful!


When we helped RikeH to prepare everything for the evening we heard the bell. Who can this be? Dicker Kumpel opened the door. Another Bunny!!! He was so happy and gave her a warm welcome. She is called Co Co Rabbit and is from the UK.


He introduced her to us – and we talked a lot.


Then we decorated the table – this is the way TVs would eat…


And this is the way, humans like to do it. They don’t sit on the table – this is strange.


We had fun behind the happy birthday sign.



The last thing this morning was to prepare the dessert. It looks yummy, doesn’t it? But it was very cold in this place.


In the afternoon RikeHs Mum Hummel invited all of us to have a delicious cake. It looks great – and tasted great!


In the evening we had a great party and ate a lot. But first we had some Champagne.


We went to the table and ate so much. I didn’t know, what to eat first.


Here are the desserts – now we were allowed to eat it.


Some more snacks...


First we looked into the camera for the photo....


...but after it – we ate everything!!!


Well Mum, it was funny – I hope to be on a birthday party soon.
