Aguamansa, Spain - 26th February 2016

By: olgamaus


Hi Mum,

today's trip started in Aguamansa, in the mountains above Orotava Valley.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1479/25436552595_573fdccb5d_z.jpg

We walked through lovely pine forests.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1528/25410405766_30ca69e30a_z.jpg

Here we also found trees which were covered by lichen.

This seems to be a kind of elderberry. Can you see that there are fruits and blooms at the same time?

And here ....

a wonderful look at Pico del Teide, covered with snow.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1647/25656694101_5ac502662a_b.jpg

The higher we climbed, the more fantastic the landscape became. Look at these lava formation.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1598/25318211012_1bfa7aea42_z.jpg

We were at a level of about 1.500 m than, the vegetation changing.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1501/25318209102_defaf5684f_z.jpg

Eukalyptus trees were growing there.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1711/25068977309_2d6c0cb15e_z.jpg

Isn't this a great view, those snowy mountains? Above the clouds the weather was much better, of course.

After returning home to Puerto de la Cruz we were really tired.

Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife, Spain - 28th February 2016

By: olgamaus

Hi Mum,

today we made a hiking tour along the coastline, towards the Western parts of Puerto de la Cruz, about 8 km towards Los Realejos and back.

Once more we walked through the lovely old town.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1613/24809876633_111dfab1b4_z.jpg

We found a beautiful mosaic at a house wall, the large red island on the left side is Tenerife.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1538/25140980990_fd2eb8039a_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1626/25140982470_511fd0d5e4_z.jpg

Close to the coast we found this lovely outlook pavilion.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1584/25140983510_fe81fd39f6_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1458/24806000794_1e7067b2be_z.jpg

We walked along the shore, with this fantastic view towards Playa Jardin and Punta Brava, another historical district of Puerto de la Cruz.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1459/25140985460_aca37523f6_z.jpg

Over the years a large field with cairns (human-made piles of stones) was created by people.These cairns are nowadays mostly used as trail markers.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1703/25436581165_7003eb2d4d_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1688/25140987080_6a1cc5a4f1_z.jpg

In the meantime we left Puerto de la Cruz behind, following the trail.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1514/25140989630_e2e68b3174_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1584/25068991409_a333f7065a_z.jpg

These are palm fruits.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1700/25343634931_0d9171250b_z.jpg

The coastline became more and more cliffy.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1649/25318230772_880d014fc7_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1662/25140995170_070a8c1fa7_z.jpg

This ruin was a water pumping station once.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1595/25068996789_05b730116e_z.jpg

Duck your head  :p

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1624/25318233322_451b350ac6_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1577/25410441866_c41ab0ac7c_z.jpg

From here we walked back.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1661/25410442496_41beedde0e_z.jpg

This time we made a side trip to the narrow lanes of Punta Brava.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1538/25318237692_4e52d769ba_z.jpg

The breakers are nearly crashing into the houses.

Bye for today

Garachico, Tenerife, Spain - 29th February 2016

By: olgamaus

28.373
-16.674


Hi Mum,

today we went to Garachico, also located at the North-Western coast of Tenerife. Garachico is an old town which was almost completely destroyed by an eruption in May 1706. Most of the town and the whole harbor were destroyed. There is no beach but natural rock bassins, remnants of the lava which came down the valley in 1706.

Cologne, Botanical Garden, Germany - 6th March 2016

By: olgamaus


Hi Mum,

today we met Strunki and went to Cologne to meet another TV-host from Germany, fam-united.

We had planned to visit the Botanical Garden ("Flora") here. It was created in late 19th century.

Incredible! Real palm trees in winter in a German city!

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1458/25122267963_683778a083_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1605/25627888442_3c10128361_z.jpg

These are monkey puzzles from South America, i.e. Chile.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1495/25722830406_83d201f73e_z.jpg

This looks like spring is on its way to Germany  :D

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1719/25722830946_8c1b29f83b_z.jpg

They are having a special camelia exhibition here in a greenhouse, camelia are blooming in winter.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1715/25748882345_d867323ecd_z.jpg

Camelia in all colors and variations.

The weather became more and more ugly, so we decided to "escape" to Düsseldorf, hopefully the weather would be better there!

Duesseldorf, Germany - 6th March 2016

By: olgamaus


After a 30 km trip to the North we parked the car in the old town of Düsseldorf.

Düsseldorf is the capital city of the German state North Rhine-Westphalia and, like Cologne, located at river Rhine. The old town is well-known for its many bars, restaurants and pubs, by tourists as well as the locals.

We walked towards river Rhine through the old town.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1603/25722838566_f02273c897_z.jpg

This is the so-called "Burgplatz" close to the river. A lot of events are taking place here and it is a favourite place to meet other people.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1589/25653820601_4318f16b9e_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1475/25748890465_5a6668cc93_z.jpg

River Rhine!

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1442/25748890815_1f4c65d8e2_z.jpg

In the background you can see Media Harbor and the Television Tower.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1593/25118462154_9a9a3b437b_z.jpg

Back to the city centre, we found this old inner harbor.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1694/25722840626_4111b5fe1e_z.jpg

Duesseldorf is well known for its unique beer, "Altbier". In summer this place is crowded with people. Because it is not summer, we went inside the pub.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1677/25118463074_be42c1e910_z.jpg

Cheers!

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1576/25653792201_518a52b3a6_z.jpg

A whole crowd of ToyVoyagers  :D

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1587/25627869452_07740e72ff_z.jpg

Back in the city we had a look at the historical city hall.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1550/25122280803_21b9f72fc6_z.jpg

In the old town you can find hundreds of bars and restaurants, that's why Duesseldorf is called "The longest bar in the world".

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1625/25122281843_862acb1bfd_z.jpg

Unfortunately we had to leave then.

Pyhtää, Finland - 7th August 2016

By: tuiaway

Hello Mum!
Today I had quite an outing. Host mom took me and my new friend Walla to her workplace - at an adventure park!
We went into a room full of strange equipment. What are these things??


https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-rlZXRrm4kBk/V6dRHK6ykRI/AAAAAAAAD0E/XvT5-JGEDvoGr-Kble5-OaU1UxxPm4cAACLcB/s320/20160807_130802.jpg

It seemed you are supposed to wear them. Those helmets I understand well enough but what about the other stuff? Host mom demonstrated:

https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-jlW-8rN8f9I/V6dRm0dnpyI/AAAAAAAAD1E/fHePbWV-f7wIgo7aYJXkdc2xQeUiwZATwCLcB/s320/20160807_131427.jpg

So it is a harness! And you wear them and then climb up on a track built on trees! Does that not sound a little bit crazy? I wondered if it is safe and was assured that it is indeed very safe. Once you are properly attached on a safety wire, you can not fall.
But these are human size stuff. Look at me! This helmet was way too big for me. It made a nice swing, though...
  :p

https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-qvtjm8SFwjo/V6dRSiN_tCI/AAAAAAAAD0Y/kV6kcSzyBvIgtM7tItxUNuA5QPyIO9xVgCLcB/s320/20160807_145521.jpg
https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-1YWggbfzbHM/V6dRRa3QptI/AAAAAAAAD0U/rMDmxOaQbjMQIO8FP4ebqx2N5kcRPmSCACLcB/s320/20160807_145457.jpg

But we bears are so skilled at climbing trees I had no need to have a helmet. So, into the forest and up on the track we went and this is what we saw:


https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-JPCkukLTOCg/V6dRUBUSpkI/AAAAAAAAD0k/Bh2ejYkqtY0Z_fOUZzyv5_ZHUD_eVXsqQCLcB/s320/20160807_152047.jpg
https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-9znaUBp7DiM/V6dRXjrRgMI/AAAAAAAAD00/C-E8HI88_8QJtwl7uZ5sjOHcejREChK0QCLcB/s320/20160807_152939.jpg

All kinds of wobbly swings, spiderweb replicas and wires to balance on. Looks fun but also like a good exercise...
We even took a slide on a zipline among the spruces! Such speed and excitement! A fun ride that was, especially as host mom was holding tightly onto us.


https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-7dueHrwKKAE/V6dRYf4UlBI/AAAAAAAAD08/QRy73jnpz_ciFbCOqHqLXWC--8qylL7TgCLcB/s320/20160807_155306.jpg

After the last zipline we landed safely and took a stroll in the woods on ground level. It felt great having solid ground under my paws again.


https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-sGoQntz8Rq0/V6dRTWKCrVI/AAAAAAAAD0g/WztskxDML8M0CSkzu9CetsgdwEQn1SMAQCLcB/s320/20160807_150924.jpg

I climbed up a big rock covered in moss and it felt so tiny after looking down from five meters up!

https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-RGWdwCX0ZZY/V6dRQabZElI/AAAAAAAAD0Q/WLRjRkn5V44vLzZhynhTxpPrigc6jkT7QCLcB/s320/20160807_145154.jpg

This was a nice, fresh day. I hope you have had a lovely Sunday as well!

Kiiminki, Finland - 21st August 2016

By: tuiaway


Hi Mom! It has been a looong time since we updated my log but I have some things to show you. Here is the first one.

Anyway!

We moved up north to Kiiminki which is a town that belong to the city of Oulu by the Bothnian Bay. My host's parents live here.

On this lovely day we made lingonberry juice from berries we picked all by ourselves. We also took a stroll in the garden which was full of flowers and different berry bushes and other growing things: Gooseberry, Sea Buckthorn, carrots...



Love, Mishuta

Nivala, Finland - 26th August 2016

By: tuiaway

I visited a town called Nivala which is two hours south from Kiiminki. My host Tuija and two other toys, Prajna and Walla joined me.

In Nivala we got to collect red currants! We used a big garden rake as a ladder and got plenty of berries. They were sweet and tangy, very delicious. Wonderful for making juice and pies.
I also spotted a pretty butterfly up in the bushes.

It was a fun day...

Memories...
(uploaded in May, 2017)

On an early winter's day...
A walk in the woods in sunshine was a refreshing experience. I was expecting to see reindeer or something else equally magical, but host mom told that reindeer don't come quite here. But in the next town one hour to northeast one can already see them...

Hugs from your dear Mishuta!

On a cruise ship at the Baltic Sea, Somewhere between Finland and Sweden - 2nd May 2017

By: tuiaway

Well, Mommy, you will get some last minute updates from me before I return home!

I am excited to tell that I got to sail on a ship a few weeks ago. We started out on a trip overseas and I insisted to be photographed in front of the open sea. My wish was granted.
The southwestern Finnish archipelago offered a gorgeous view.

Palm Springs, California, USA - 8th May 2017

By: tuiaway

Hiya Mom!

Look where we ended up to after traveling far and wide! In the city of Palm Springs in hot and spicy south where lots of actors from Hollywood would locate in the olden days... You know how this came to be?

Back then, when the celebs made contracts for the film studios instead of single movies, they could be called to work anytime. Therefore, they weren't allowed to live any further than one hundred miles away form L.A. - and Palm Springs is just about 98 miles out!
We visited the local art museum where a fantastic, talkative gift shop clerk told us all about this, and much more that I wish I had written down somewhere.

Unfortunately we did not run into any famous people. That didn't make a great difference anyway, for we were getting ready to hike on the hills surrounding the area, which made my heart race much faster than spotting celebrities :p
The hiking trail began right at the back of the museum parking lot and was very rocky - plus, the weather was hot, at least 30 degrees celsius. So we had to take it pretty slow; but it was good exercise, great fun and a cool way to get a look over the city.

Here are some photos for you to enjoy...

With a smile,
Mishuta

Langinkoski Nature Reserve, Kotka, Finland - 17th May 2017

By: tuiaway

Hi Mommy!

Would you believe if I told you that we found a few photos all the way from last August? Memories of summer in the southeast...
We thought we had lost these photos and were happily surprised when browsing through a laptop computer here back north.

Without further ado, here we go: (These photos were taken on August 16th)
Photos from a pretty little natural reserve area just a few miles from the city. There was a fast-rolling rapid, and gorgeous seaside style (full figured) pine trees. I climbed very carefully on a thin but durable fence to take a look at the river flowing towards the Baltic Sea.
Langinkoski was a place full of history, too; the area featured an imperial fishing lodge built in 1889 for the Russian emperor Alexander the Third.

I still remember that day like it was yesterday...

Love, Mishuta
