Vienna, Austria - 1st January 2014

By: Cessy

hello mum,

it is high time to tell you about my adventures at christmas and new year.

but first of all i wish you the very best for 2014  :D  :D

on christmas day i could help to decorate the christmas tree

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/640x480q90/577/r7so.jpg

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/640x480q90/21/x67m.jpg

see mum my fine red christmas cap  B)

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/640x480q90/819/0luz.jpg

put the lights on

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/640x480q90/12/uz3u.jpg

also on the lantern

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/640x480q90/42/wffe.jpg

unpacking the gifts

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/640x480q90/842/xf0u.jpg

and then – surprise, surprise - my colleague in travelling, little patka came home from her latest trip to germany and brought some sweets for us

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/640x480q90/560/ymv4.jpg

it was so fine to talk with her about our adventures.
i guess we became good friends

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/640x480q90/560/7jl8.jpg

on the last day of the year my hostmums organized a fine new years eve party with fondue eating. i could help in making the mayonnaise dip.

here the most important ingredient for this dip: eggs

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/640x480q90/819/flad.jpg

we had to separate the egg white from yolk

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/15/4bpm.jpg

look mum, here you can see me with yellow, the little rubber bathing duck.
put the yolk in a bowl

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/42/t6up.jpg

mix it carefully with adding on some oil

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/534/0n6z.jpg

then we added salt, lemon juice, mustard and a pinch of pepper. finished and ready to fill the dip in a small pan:

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/607/8bi8.jpg

we prepared also other dips and side dishes, see how pretty the dining table was looking:

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/208/5r1y.jpg

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/812/r2fj.jpg

and then - at long last - we started fundue eating:

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/600/2j86.jpg

tasted so fine

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/59/lshx.jpg

in the first hour of the very new year we made lead-pouring.
it is a new years eve custom of telling fortunes by the shapes made by molten lead dropped into cold water

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/827/7ip2.jpg

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/89/h1q3.jpg

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/34/n2ay.jpg

this is the piece i have created, what does this mean to my future? that i will be travelling out in the world for some more adventures? goodness knows …

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/822/m80j.jpg

this are the latest news from austria, mum.

in the meanwhile many greetings and kisses
yours

Home!, England - 1st April 2014

By: Gizalba2

Oh my, after around 2 years and 10 months of travelling the world, I am BACK HOME!!!  :stare:  :D How strange and what an achievement!

Thankyou so much to all of my hosts who gave me such a wonderful and safe journey: RikeH kessalia LittleCableCars smaug Leslie and Cessy :)

And thankyou to my dear friend Patka for being so kind to give me the gift of your scarf - it brought a tear to my mum's eye, she thinks I look very dashing in it B) I hope you are having fun in Mexico! I will make sure I watch your travelog :)

So, when I arrived in my box it was all very quiet and I wondered how I was going to get out. Then finally I heard scraping at the sides, and then - two faces appeared that I didn't recognise. These turned out to be Sienna and Moosey, who moved in with my mum after I left for travelling. They were lovely and greeted me warmly. I showed them my lovely scarf from Patka and the gifts in my box. We had fun messing around with the shells I collected from Croatia  B)

Mum has moved house since I left, so I will have to explore this new place :)


P.s. The chocolate wafer supply were yummy! Thanks cessy :D
