Travelog for: Archimonde

Home, Singapore - 24th February 2011

By: Erulisse

Howdy!  I'm Archimonde the mouse.  I was picked up by my mentor, Erulisse, on Tuesday evening and life hasn't been the same then!  For the first time in my life, I left the confines of the store and took a bus & MRT ride on the same day.  The journey was short but exciting as I'm seeing things I've never seen before.

Upon arrival on the place where I came to call Home, I was introduced to heaps of other plushies.  They were of all sizes, types and colors.  It was so overwhelming but everyone did their best to make me feel welcome.  Before I gotten everything, I was told by my mentor that I will become a ToyVoyager and will travel all around the world!

I like the sound of that and am looking forward to meeting my first host, whoever he/she might be!

In the meantime, while waiting, am just gonna explore the house and hang out with my new found friends.  Till the next time ~

Home, Singapore - 1st March 2011

By: Erulisse

I feel so lost!  The world seems like such a huge place, and I understand that I haven't even gotten out of my home yet!  I've heard from Bump and the rest that there's a resident cat in the home.  We haven't been introduced yet, obviously coz my mentor is worried about my safety.  I look forward to meeting Meow though.  Am pretty sure we'll get along fine.

Was introduced to cross-stitching by my mentor yesterday. 

http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x374/BumpTV/ArchimondeTV/03-xstitch28012011.jpg


After watching for an hour or so, I decided to give it a try under Erulisse's watchful eye.  Verdict: it's an awesome thing to do!  I hope I'll be able to work on a mouse design someday...

http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x374/BumpTV/ArchimondeTV/04-xstitch28012011.jpg


That aside, there's nothing more that I want than to see the world.  To leave my home and explore whatever that is out there.  My mentor casually mentioned that she'll be bringing me out soon.  She cautioned that it wouldn't be much of a big deal, but hey, I'll be leaving the house for the 1st time!  There's sooooo much to be excited about!

Hmmm I wonder if there's anyone out there would would like to host me?  I'd love to go anywhere.

Home, Singapore - 2nd March 2011

By: Erulisse

I didn't have to wait long!  My mentor brought me out today and I had a great time on the overall!

First up was to her workplace.  Okay, I admit.  It was kinda boring being "at work".  She was sooooo busy that she didn't have much time for me.  I just left pretty much to myself, so all I did was read, explore the area around her desk (I was cautioned not to wander off as mean humans exist in the office!) and snooze.  8hrs of work.  I am so lucky that I don't have to do anything like that.  I hated the phone ringing most.  Noise noise noise coming from every cubicle.  Ugh!

http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x374/BumpTV/ArchimondeTV/05-Atwork.jpg


For dinner, we went to have a buffet at this place called Sakura.  It was an international buffet.  I've never seen that much food in my life!  Tucked in to herbal chicken soup, sashimi, chawanmushi, prawns, snow crabs... etc.  Boy I felt really fat after that!  Now I can understand why Mr Greedy grew to such a shape haha :P

http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x374/BumpTV/ArchimondeTV/06-sakura01.jpg http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x374/BumpTV/ArchimondeTV/06-sakura02.jpg


After dinner, we went to Plaza Singapura to watch a movie at the Golden Village Cineplex on the top floor.  We watched "Black Swan".  It was dark, intense, and beautiful.  Loved every single bit of it.

http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x374/BumpTV/ArchimondeTV/07-Plazasing.jpg


Upon returning home, I was informed that I'll be going to Germany!  Whoah!  That's one really short notice!  Erulisse has already bought a padded envelope for me to travel in and made me a tag in hurry.  The tag looks kinda ugly but she assured me that it'll only be a temporary one.  I'll find a new tag waiting for me when I get home. 

I'm excited and afraid at the same time.  I hope the mail people treat me well! 

Bye bye for now! :D

Sülfeld, Germany - 15th March 2011

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

I arrived safe in Sülfeld. But sadly a little late to go on the holiday with RikeH and Dicker Kumpel.

But I heart other voices outside of my envelope and decided to climb out of it. Two other TVs arrived, too, and jumped out of their envelopes - just as I did.

In the house were a lovely old lady  - she took us on a walk through Sülfeld, because the weather was so nice.

Here you see Gracy, Paddington Bear and me in front of the old school.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0265.jpg

Look, this is the place, where the mayor works - and the emblem of Sülfeld.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0266.jpg

The house has a nice old door.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0271.jpg

I relaxed in the sun, next to a little lake.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0262.jpg

The old church of Sülfeld is really beautiful.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0273.jpg

On the other side of the street is the old pharmacy.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0276.jpg

This was a nice walk.

Many greetings

Archimonde

Sülfeld, Germany - 20th March 2011

By: RikeH

Hi Mum,

it is a sunny Sunday today. We enjoyed the sun and waited for our hosts to come home.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0278.jpg

And here they come - Dicker Kumpel and his guest Inuk - RikeH is behind the camera...

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0279.jpg

Dicker Kumpel apologized for not being here when we arrived - but no problem, the mail system worked slowly.We talked a lot about the last days.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0280.jpg

There were many beautiful flowers in the garden - I wanted to show you some of it.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0289.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0290.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0291.jpg

They are really nice, aren't they? RikeH told me that it is good to have the Springtime now.

Later we went into the house and sat on our place. Dicker Kumpel and his guests have an own big armchair.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0297.jpg

Suddenly we heart someone laughing. A yellow guy looked around the corner.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0298.jpg

Dicker Kumpel and Inuk met him in Zingst. He heard about the life of ToyVoyagers and wants to become one, too. Well, we will see - he had to talk to RikeH about it...

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0299.jpg

Next week we will visit a really big city called Hamburg - Dicker Kumpel told us, that it is a great place to see.

Love
Archimonde

Hamburg, Germany - 21st March 2011

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

we went to Hamburg today. Behind me you can see the Gothic Revival Church of St. Nicholas. It was formerly one of the five Lutheran main churches in Hamburg. It is now in ruins, serving as a memorial.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0301.jpg

We went there because a colleague of RikeH told us, that there is an elevater, who can take us to a 75,3 metre-high platform inside the spire.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0308.jpg

Of course we tried it out. And here you see the view – it was amazing. You can see the Townhall and the Lake Alster behind me.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0313.jpg

This was the view to the old warehouse destrict of Hamburg – there are many nice old buildings.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0318.jpg

The next direction is to the Port of Hamburg. I would love to start a cruise from there, Mum.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0324.jpg

It was nice on the platform, but very windy and RikeH was afraid of loosing us, so we went down to the ground. Here you see all of us together.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0325.jpg

Can you imagine – I was there on the tower!!!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0329.jpg

It was amazing.

Love
Archimonde

Bad Oldesloe, Germany - 27th March 2011

By: RikeH

Hi Mum,

we went to Bad Oldesloe. This is a small town near to Sülfeld. When we went into the city centre we crossed a bridge and saw this nice little river.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0357.jpg

This is the Townhall.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0358.jpg

There are many nice old buildings.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0369.jpg

We saw the river again - there were some ducks, I told them about the life of a ToyVoyager, but they were not interested in coming with us.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0387.jpg

Two other beautiful views - it was a nice place - I understand why the ducks live here.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0386.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0385.jpg

Many Greetings

Hamburg, Germany - 1st April 2011

By: RikeH

Hi Mum,

we went to Hamburg to see the Lake Alster. Here we are on the way in the train.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0393-1.jpg

I looked out of the window.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0396.jpg

We saw ducks in Bad Oldesloe – well – they live here in the city, too.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0400.jpg

This is the view over the Lake Binnenalster. This big white building behind me is the Four Seasons Hotel of Hamburg.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0401.jpg

We went onto the Lombards-Bridge to see more of the Lake.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0408.jpg

Well, we walked around the Lake – this is the other side – and you can see the Bridge – far away. The little boats are for boat trips on the Alster.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0412.jpg

We crossed the street and saw the Town-Hall.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0417.jpg

I loved this view, too.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0418.jpg

Back to work we passed this Theater.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0419.jpg

What a nice day.
Yours
Archimonde

Bad Segeberg, Germany - 3rd April 2011

By: RikeH

Hi Mum,

look at this photo – you can surely imagine, where I am?

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0425.jpg

No - I am not in the USA, but in Bad Segeberg. They have a outdoor theatre here, where they play Winnetou-Stories.

They have a nice big lake here.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0439.jpg

I liked the view over the Lake.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0440.jpg

We walked around the Lake – it was a long way.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0441.jpg

There were nice flowers next to the path.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0447.jpg

We went into the city to see the Church of Bad Segeberg – it is a nice little town.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0451.jpg

Bye

Sülfeld, Germany - 6th April 2011

By: RikeH

Hi Mum,

the weather was wonderful – and we decided to make a trip with the bike.

The way was really long!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0465.jpg

After some kilometers I relaxed in the sun.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0466.jpg

There was a lake – many fishes lives there.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0472.jpg

Back home I relaxed among beautiful flowers, what a nice trip.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0481.jpg

Many greetings

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_0500.jpg

There were beautiful buildings.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0501.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_0515.jpg

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

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0516.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_0517.jpg

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

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0533.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_0540.jpg

At home we had delicious muffins.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0546.jpg

Bye

Hamburg, Germany - 17th April 2011

By: RikeH

Hi Mum,

We went to a fair in Hamburg. It was so funny. We saw many things. These sharks were very scary!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/B_0604.jpg

This slide was built in 1907. It was really funny.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/B_0607.jpg

There was a big wheel.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/B_0611.jpg

And a fast  carrousel. I didn’t want to use it.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/B_0612.jpg

I preferred this one!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/B_0622.jpg

Hamburg, Germany - 21st April 2011

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

We went to Hamburg again to see the Port.  First we had a look at the new building of a philharmonics.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/B_0629.jpg

And I saw a very big ship on the Elbe River.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/B_0630.jpg

This is the Cap San Diego  - it is a museum now.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/B_0631.jpg

Behind me you see another museum-ship – it is a sailing ship – the Rickmer Rickmers.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/B_0632.jpg

These are little boats which pull the big ships.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/B_0633.jpg

This is a nicer view of the Rickmer Rickmers.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/B_0643.jpg

This monument is a thank you for the crew of the ship Cap Anamur. They helped many Vietnamese people.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/B_0650.jpg

I really liked the Port of Hamburg.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/B_0651.jpg

Sülfeld, Germany - 24th April 2011

By: RikeH

Hi Mum,

Happy Easter!!!

Today it is Easter and I met the Easter bunny. He told me that I should seek for some surprises.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0697.jpg

But first I talked with some other funny guys hanging around here.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0701.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0708.jpg

Then it was time to seek for some nice things. I found something...

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0681.jpg

...it is an Easter net, as they say here in Germany.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0682.jpg

It was a difficult search, so I asked Long Hippo to help me.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0683.jpg

He gave me a hint. There is a bunny with an egg in his bucket.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0684.jpg

It is for me!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0685.jpg

The bunny told me that there will be one more surprise outside.

So I went out and found a bunny out of chocolate!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0718.jpg

What a lot of presents for me!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0720.jpg

When I sat there, some chicken came. They were so cute!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0729.jpg

They wanted some chocolate, but it is not good for them - so I gave them some grain.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2011/B_0734.jpg


I really hope that you have a great Easter weekend, too, Mum!

Love
Archimonde
