Home, Germany - 27th October 2011

By: Graham

This is the first day, I'm online here and now I'm going to find someone who wants to host me. I'd like to start my journey somewhere in Asia I guess. I really can't wait.

Furthermore I can't wait to get started. Pics will be added soon.

Ratingen, Germany - 3rd November 2011

By: Graham

Finally one of my mummies had time to take the first picture of me.

I was relaxing in my warm, cosy bed, until she came and said I have to get up for this picture. She laid a "Kinderriegel" next to me, to show, how small I am.

Tomorrow, I will start my first trip - to Bochum, Starlight Express. There I will meet a guy also called Graham... Mummy said that so I hope she didn't lie. Isn't that exciting?! I really can't wait. Hope that it doesn't rain tomorrow so that I can take tons of pictures, just for you!

Bochum, Germany - 4th November 2011

By: RedSwan

Wow, today was the day I went to Bochum. You don't know where Bochum is? Well, I tell you. It's a city in the Ruhrregion of Germany. It was quite exciting.

Our journey started at 3.39 pm at the station in Ratingen, where we had to go onto track 2.

After about 7 minutes later I took the train to Essen mainstation, where I had my own seat.

We had to change the train in Essen, after we got to Bochum. But what did we do in Bochum? We / I went to the stage door of the musical Starlight Express.

Acutally it was quite interesting. We found some bricks and one brick just said that I should be for Dustin and Greaseball?!? What is a Dustin and what a Greaseball?!? And another said "Gemüsenüdelauflauf"

At first I sat there all alone! Everybody was talking to another and I? I hadn't anyone to talk to.

But then Cosy came around and finally I had another ToyVoyager to talk to :)

As you see, I also got a "Yogurette". It's a certain type of chocolate.

At the end we went in front of the foyer. It was the first time that I saw such a huge theatre.

And I really tried to hold their logo. But that was hard.

After that try I turned around and guess what I saw?!? Yeah a real old steam train! Isn't that exciting?

My host mummy showed me then the guy who plays the steam train in Starlight Express. Can you imagine that? A guy playing a train? Strange, isnt it?

It was an amazing day and I really can't wait what the future brings!

But now I'm really tired.

Read you,

Rtg - Homberg, Germany - 5th November 2011

By: RedSwan

Today, it wasn't so exciting like the yesterday. As my host mummy didn't feel well, we stayed at home or just visited her mum. So nothing really exciting.

At first, my host mummy Nat told me that she has to translate an English text and I told her to help her. But then she showed me the text it wasn't English... Well, it was English, but not that kind of English I'm used to read. It was - well, what did she say? - Old English (English that is spoken from 400 - 1100)

But she said that it doesn't matter if I can't translate it. She also needed to learn the vocabulary and that wouldn't be the text I had to work on. So she showed me another one. But even this text I couldn't really understand, although it wasn't old English. She told me that this one is written in Middle English (spoken from 1100 - 1500). It's acutally closer to our English. She added that she also has big problems in translating this text, so I looked up some vocabulary

But it wasn't a big help so we both gave up and just read the text she has to read until next lesson. I helped to highlight important words and phrases.

Afterwards she wanted to thank me and so I got the change to meet new friends, who always stays that my host mummys appartment. Acutally there were tons of koalas but there were too many people on this picture so I just show you the important ones.

Then she got a call by her mummy where we both went to. She said that her mummy would have some real animals, like two ferrets and a cat. So I really wanted to have photos with them. But I only got one of both ferrets and the cat.

My hosts mummy sister is also thinking about sending one of her stuffed animals around the world and so I should talk to him. At first I didn't really like him.

But after a while I really started to like him. We had a good talk and yeah, maybe he's also about travelling the world and maybe we see us again in another country. That would be fun and I really hope I will.

Then it got dark and Nat, my host mummy told me, that we have to leave. So we went home, where she read a story.. Just for me. But first, I had to choose a book. That was hard, as she has sooo many. Here's just me with a couple of her books

I layed down in bed, where I met a bear, called Cam. At first, I was really afraid but she said that she would take care of me. That was soo nice and then I fell asleep.

Rtg - Homberg, Germany - 6th November 2011

By: RedSwan

On my last day over here my host mummy showed me the place she lives. Actually this place (Homberg) is small - just around 5,000 people live here. It's surrounded by fields.

First we had to walk a hill up. It was hard as I wasn't used to it until now. There we saw a man made of stone sitting a around and drinking something like a beer. Nat told me, that he's called Leo and the artist, who made this figure, lives in the house next door. Nevertheless I had to talk a picture with it.

Then we went until the end of the hill and I saw a church. Nat explained that it's the catholic one and the oldest in Ratingen. Unbelievable. But it should be older than 1,000 years. Can you imagine it? It doesn't look like that.

We turned around and I had a look down at the hill we just went. It really looks like a typical village and I really love these old frame houses my host is also living in (even if you don't see it anymore)

Afterwards she showed me the other church in the village. This one is just about turning 100 years upcoming year. Unfortunately I wasn't able to take a picture having it in the background as there were soooooo many people who just came out.
In the afternoon we went to a birthdayparty where lots of mentally handicapped people were around. Unfortunately my mummy wasn't really allowed to take pictures so I'm happy I got this one with the cake.

In the evening I already had to go into the envelope as I'm going to the Netherlands right now. I had to go into it so early as it was the first thing to do the next morning. Right before going to university. But I was happy to be with her and maybe I will return for a longer period again.

Goodbye and read you out of the Netherlands :)

Eschen, Liechtenstein - 24th December 2011

By: Binle

Hi mum,
Today it was very exciting, because it's Christmas Eve. Binle decorated the Christmas tree and I helped her with the balls and lights.

After that we went to the cinema in Hohenems in Austria. It was the first time, that I went to IMAX and it was fantastic. We watched "Puss in Boots" and it was very funny. I had my own chair in the IMAX and the popcorn was great. :)

After the movie we went home and ate dinner. Mmmmh. Then we go to the other room with the Christmas tree and it looked so beautiful.

After that I was very tired and I went to my house to sleep.
