Brunssum, Netherlands - 16th August 2010

By: Braveheart Sam

Today was really the first day of the rest of my life.
I've been finally set free from the drawer and my 'people' took me with her to go to therapy.
She had to ride the bicycle and I had a taste of it too.

Brunssum, Netherlands - 17th August 2010

By: Braveheart Sam

At the grocerystore, whe had to decide what to eat.
I found the potato wedges pretty appealing, so I made a point by joining the wedges in the frozen section. Brrr! That's cold!!!

After that, I had to cuddle with one of the dogs in my house. His name is Gaio, Portuguese for Crook. But he's really nice.

I also met a future TV, but Im not sure if he's up for the challenge. He's cranky! I gave him my best smile, and he wouldn't even look at me! How rude...

Sülfeld, Germany - 21st August 2010

By: RikeH

Hi Mum,

I arrived in Germany, I am so happy. Dicker Kumpel gave me a warm Welcome.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0748.jpg

Then he introduced me to the others. They are Pippi, Murph and fai. But Murph is only visiting today – he spends some months with RikeH's sister.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0749.jpg

Look – I arrived in the right time to eat some cakes.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0730.jpg

I chose this one. It was so yummy.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0735.jpg

I am sure, this is a good place to start my life as a ToyVoyager. I will write more soon.

Love
Mimi

Altenau, Germany - 23rd August 2010

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

Yesterday we went to an Centre of Otter. Here you see all of us with a funny statue of two playing Otters.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0793.jpg

Later we saw real otters – in the lake behind me. Can you see them?

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0771.jpg

Here they show how far the Otters could spring, if they would be as large as human. I am not sure how far I could spring, I think about 100 meters, what do you think?

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0791.jpg

in the evening we arrived in Altenau – our place to stay for this week. It is in the Harz mountains in Germany.

Today we explored the village – it was not so much to see, but here is the church.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0796.jpg

Inside the tourist information I talked with this Deer. Normally he lives outside, but today he had some questions about walks around the Village.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0801.jpg

There was a little River in the Centre.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0807.jpg

Later we went home and spent the rest of the day talking and having fun. I really love my life as a ToyVoyager. Please give a big hug to Grouchy!

Love
Mimi

Goslar, Germany - 24th August 2010

By: RikeH

Hello from Goslar,

We went to a city called Goslar today. It is situated in Lower Saxony and really old.

The Old Town of Goslaris an UNESCO World Heritage Site. We started our tour in front of the Mediaeval Imperial Palace (Kaiserpfalz).

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0811.jpg

In 1254 the Great Holy Cross was founded as an almshouse for the town’s needy. Now it is a museum.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0822.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0820.jpg

Then we went to the Marketplace. Behind me you can see the Town-Hall.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0840.jpg

From the Balcony ot the Town-Hall, we made this photo. It shows the Kaiserworth -     
The guildhall from the cloth merchants.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0833.jpg

This statue is so funny!!!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0843.jpg

Because it is one of my life-mission to Visit Miami Ink (and maybe get my own tattoo), we stopped at this shop. Unfortunately it was closed - and it was not Miami Ink.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0849.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0850.jpg

The last nice buildings are called the Broad Gate. Wonderful.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0853.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0854.jpg

It was a nice sunny day!

Greetings
Mimi

Altenau, Germany - 25th August 2010

By: RikeH

Hello from Altenau,

Rain - we sat here - and saw the rain.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0917.jpg

No problem for us - ToyVoyagers always are happy - and we decided to explore the flat.

First we saw this butterfly.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0918.jpg

It was not so cold - otherwise we could have used this fireplace.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0920.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0919.jpg

We played two games. The first one was with many numbers.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0921.jpg

Then we played a bigger game - called 'Tore der Welt'. It is difficult, so
Dicker Kumpel and I played together - and Pippi and fai played together.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0922.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0923.jpg

The other two won, but we all had a lot of fun.

In the evening it was time to party. When RikeH and Thomas were away, we found
these two little bottles.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0911.jpg

Well, the bottles were full and the glasses empty - we should change this.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0912.jpg

After some hours - the glasses were empty - I took a closer look.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0913.jpg

Nothing to see - maybe Dicker Kumpel will have more success?

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0914.jpg

No - everything is empty... Bad luck for all of us.

Oups - RikeH was coming back. She looked at us - and was not that amused.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0916.jpg

Mum - I had fun. But I am a little worried about RikeH words : We will see us tomorrow....

Hicks

Altenau, Germany - 26th August 2010

By: RikeH

Hello from Altenau again,

Ouch! My head!!! I had a headache. It was awful. RikeH helped all of us - and gave us cold towels for our heads.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0926.jpg

Later we had some coffee and some medicine.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0928.jpg

We decided to stay inside, relax on the couch and do nothing.

But RikeH told us that fresh air is the best for us today. So we walked with her to the Village.

We went into the spa gardens.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0866.jpg

Normally the music is playing here - not today. But this is okay - loud sounds are awful for my head today.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0871.jpg

These guys are funny - and quiet.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0878.jpg

This was enough for today. I wanted to go home - no loud conversations today.
There must have been something wrong with the drinks yesterday.

Love
Mimi

Altenau, Germany - 27th August 2010

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

Another nice day in Altenau. RikeH wanted to visit the Kräuterpark yesterday, but we ToyVoyagers wanted to go home. So we went in the park today. It is the biggest park of spices of the World. Wow!
Here you see me in front of a lot of spices.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0886.jpg

There was a beautiful building. In the building we learnt a lot about spices.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0893.jpg

Later we had a rest - and talked a lot.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0900.jpg

At the end there was a wonderful small waterfall.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0903.jpg

It was a really interesting day!

Love
Mimi

Bad Harzburg, Germany - 28th August 2010

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

we drove to a nice little town today - Bad Harzburg. The first interesting things we saw were
these two horsemen. 

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0944.jpg

There are beautiful old buildings.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0947.jpg

In the middle of the city we found this fountain of youth.There are funny people on it.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0957.jpg

Next to the fountain we met this friendly bunny - and talked to him.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0958.jpg

There was a nice lady on a Donkey on the other side of Bad Harzburg.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0962.jpg

On our way back we stopped in Torfhaus. In the background you see the Brocken -
the highest point of the Harz with 1141 m.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0965.jpg

There was a big monument in Torfhaus.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0974.jpg

There is a sentence written in 20 languages. Here it is in Dutch. Can you read it?

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0973b.jpg

We are ready to walk onto the Brocken...

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0979.jpg

But this friendly wolf told us that the weather will be rainy - so we decided to drive home.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0982.jpg

Tomorrow is the last day of our holiday. I would love to stay here for many more weeks.

Many greetings
Mimi

Altenau, Germany - 29th August 2010

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

It was our last holiday-day and it was time to drive home to Sülfeld. When we looked out of the
window we saw some deers - this was funny. 

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0936.jpg

We stopped in Uelzen - it is famous for its station. The original station was renovated for Expo 2000
following plans by the Austrian artist and architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser.I really liked it.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0990.jpg

Inside the station :

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0991.jpg

The station platforms are nice, too.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_0998.jpg

Back home in Sülfeld there was a new guest - Peachy Chai. Dicker Kumpel introduced him to us -
and we talked a lot!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_1004.jpg

Love
Mimi

Hamburg, Germany - 1st September 2010

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

I went to Hamburg with RikeH today. She had to work, but promised to show me a nice place in the city in the lunchtime. We went around the nice Lake Alster. There is a fountain in the middle.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_1007.jpg

There were swans...

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_1008.jpg

... and a colorful carrousel.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_1010.jpg

This is the flag of Hamburg - and in the background a very expensive hotel.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_1011.jpg

Another view of the Alster Lake.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_1014.jpg

We crossed the road and saw the Townhall

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_1015.jpg

and other nice buildings on the other side.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_1016.jpg

What a nice trip!

Love

Mimi

Bad Oldesloe, Germany - 4th September 2010

By: RikeH

Hi Mum,

we went to a small city today - it is called Bad Oldesloe - and RikeH went to school there - years ago...

First we went to a nice river.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_1022.jpg

Here I stood in front of the Townhall.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_1025.jpg

This is the church near to the city centre.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_1031.jpg

There are many nice old houses.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_1035.jpg

And I really loved this view.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_1041.jpg

Dicker Kumpel told me that the water wheel normally moves - but not today.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A2010c/IMG_1047.jpg

Many greetings
Sweet Mimi
