Venice, Italy - 13th February 2012

By: Shilo

Good Morning!

Today is our first day in Venice. I’m so happy about it and a little curious how it will be there.

Venice is connected to the mainland with a gigantic bridge. You could cross the bridge by train, car, bus or you could walk. We went there by bus, because the bus stop is next to our hotel. Unfortunately we couldn’t take pictures from our tour, because it was too full in the bus.

We arrived in Venice at a big bus station.

From there we started our tour through the streets. We were just looking around and saw a lot of cool places.

Here you could see the view from the famous Rialto Bridge over the Canal Grande. Isn't it great?

After that, we arrived at the Piazza de San Marco. Here we could see the Basilica di San Marco, a beautiful church and Campanile di San Marco, a very high bell tower.

At the Piazza were a lot of tourists and people in wonderful costumes. This carnival seems to be really great.

http://img641.imageshack.us/img641/9386/img02941000x667.jpg

After we walked around the Piazza for a while we decided to go somewhere else. So we went down to the promenade at the water.

After a while we decided to go back into the city and came to a park. Here we saw a cool statue with a big lion.

http://img404.imageshack.us/img404/3958/img02991000x667.jpg

We walked a long time through the streets and saw a lot of interesting streets and houses.

http://img689.imageshack.us/img689/2097/dscn05931000x750.jpg

Later we went to a little restaurant and ate something.
When it was getting dark, we decided to go home.

Venice, Italy - 14th February 2012

By: Shilo

Bongiorno!

I wish you all a happy Valentine’s Day!

http://img844.imageshack.us/img844/4886/dscn05251000x7501000x75.jpg

Today is our second day in Venice. I’m curious what this day will bring.
When we arrived at the bus station in Venice, we decided to take one of the waterbuses, called vaporetti, to San Marco.
We got the chance, to have a look around the lagoon and the canal. It was very interesting.

http://img37.imageshack.us/img37/9823/dscn05981000x750.jpg

http://img10.imageshack.us/img10/7041/dscn06011000x750.jpg

http://img546.imageshack.us/img546/2748/dscn06031000x750.jpg

http://img593.imageshack.us/img593/4565/dscn06051000x750.jpg

When we arrived at San Marco, we went to the Basilika di San Marco.
It is the most famous of the city's churches, constructed in 828, and one of the best known examples of Byzantine architecture. Originally it was the chapel of the Doge, and has only been the city's cathedral since 1807. For its opulent design, gilded Byzantine mosaics, and its status as a symbol of Venetian wealth and power, from the 11th century on the building has been known by the nickname Chiesa d'Oro (Church of gold).

http://img718.imageshack.us/img718/4260/img04811000x667.jpg

http://img593.imageshack.us/img593/2396/img07311000x667.jpg

http://img52.imageshack.us/img52/3664/dscn06451000x750.jpg

http://img41.imageshack.us/img41/8476/img03451000x667.jpg

Woooow, this church is really awesome. It looks like everything is out of gold. Everywhere we could see great paintings on the walls and the ceiling. I have never seen something so impressive before.

http://img526.imageshack.us/img526/8627/dscn06861000x750.jpg

http://img29.imageshack.us/img29/3343/dscn06571000x750.jpg

http://img109.imageshack.us/img109/4976/img03621000x667.jpg

Then we went to the treasure chamber. Here we could see golden candleholders, crosses and a lot more. It was very interesting.

http://img842.imageshack.us/img842/3118/dscn0667750x1000.jpg

http://img845.imageshack.us/img845/1557/img03651000x667.jpg

http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/7582/dscn06721000x750.jpg

After that we went up to the top of the church. Here were a lot of cool things to see at the St Mark’s Museum. From here you got a wonderful view into the nave.

http://img842.imageshack.us/img842/2527/dscn06811000x750.jpg

http://img194.imageshack.us/img194/5290/dscn06881000x750.jpg

http://img534.imageshack.us/img534/4898/dscn07121000x750.jpg

Especially one room in the Museum was very great. The painting on the ceiling was very impressive.

http://img844.imageshack.us/img844/8210/dscn07161000x750.jpg

http://img828.imageshack.us/img828/365/dscn07191000x750.jpg

http://img710.imageshack.us/img710/9162/dscn0728750x1000.jpg

Then we went outside on the balcony. From here we got a great view over the Piazza San Marco and the sea promenade.

http://img826.imageshack.us/img826/2541/dscn0711750x1000.jpg

The Horses of Saint Mark were installed on the basilica in about 1254. After a long restoration, since the 1990s they have been kept in St Mark’s Museum (inside the basilica). The horses now on the facade of the cathedral are bronze replicas.

http://img14.imageshack.us/img14/4941/dscn07001000x750.jpg

We spend the rest of the day on the Piazza and the Promenade.

http://img848.imageshack.us/img848/290/dscn06491000x750.jpg

http://img23.imageshack.us/img23/1362/dscn07941000x750.jpg

http://img826.imageshack.us/img826/7274/img0737667x1000.jpg

Here we wanted to use the time to enjoy the impression of the carnival.
It is said that the Carnival of Venice was originated from a victory of the "Repubblica della Serenissima", Venice previous name, against the Patriarch of Aquileia, Ulrico in the year 1162. In the honor of this victory, the people started to dance and make reunions in San Marco Square. Apparently this festival started on that period and become official in the renaissance. After a long absence, the carnival return to operate in 1979.
It was great to see all these different costumes.

Venice, Italy - 15th February 2012

By: Shilo

Good Morning Everybody!

Today started with a big surprise for host dad. When he came out of the bathroom, he saw the candles and a balloon in the shape of a heart, that host mum had prepared for their wedding day. He was very happy about it.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-ZmEz1jkvHy0/T0FIbH5oPgI/AAAAAAAAAA0/TntIpZ-dbqA/s640/DSCN1063%2520%25281000x750%2529.jpg

After the breakfast we went to Venice. From the Bus station we took the waterbus to Murano. Before we reached Murano we stopped at Cimitero di san Michele, the Graveyard Island.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-rUM5ZEqzP8A/T0FIqBjhPAI/AAAAAAAAACY/OcjRsgdKBYQ/s640/DSCN1103%2520%2528750x1000%2529.jpg

It was a very impressive graveyard. When we entered it, we saw hundreds of white crosses. On most of them where pictures of dead. Everywhere where flowers, so everything looks very colorful. I have never seen something like that before.
After that we reached big white walls with lots and lots of names and pictures of people that had passed away. There were also a lot of flowers for them. It reminded me a little of the pictures of American graveyards.
Out of respect for the dead, we took only Pictures from the outside.

After our short stop, we reached Murano.

Here we could see wonderful glass art, but it wasn’t allowed to take photos in the shops.
But when we walked through the streets we found three great sculptures there.

Later we also found a small restaurant, which has decorated the tables outside with some beautiful glass flowers.

After a while, we went back to the San Marco Piazza. There we decided to go and have a look at the Palazzo Ducale.
The Doge's Palace is a gothic palace and was the residence of the Doge of Venice, the supreme authority of the Republic of Venice.

Sadly we weren’t allowed to take pictures from the wonderful paintings and sculptures inside. So I can’t show you how great the biggest wall painting in the world looks like. But we could take some Pictures with some sculptures outside.

The court and the prisons were originally in the Doge's Palace. A famous inmate was Giacomo Casanova. The new prison was built across the Rio de Palazzo from the palace. It was connected to the palace by the Bridge of Sighs.

At first it was a little bit scary to look around the prison, but then it was very interesting. The cells were really small.  And on the walls you could see some texts that the inmates had written on them.

We walked over the Bridge of Sights, to the new prison. When we watched out of the small window, we could see the lagoon.

We spend the rest of the day at the Piazza and looked at the people in the wonderful costumes.

Venice, Italy - 16th February 2012

By: Shilo

Hello.

Today was our last day in Venice. I was a little bit sad about it, but we wanted to enjoy this last day. And at the end, it was the best day that we had here in Venice.

It was the last time, we took the bus to Venice. And today we could take some Pictures from our tour.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Venedig/DSCN12331000x750600x450.jpg

We took the waterbus to the Santa Maria Della Salute church. On the way to the church we had a great look around Venice from the Canal Grande.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Venedig/DSCN12651000x750600x450.jpg

In Venice everything was transported on boats.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Venedig/DSCN12481000x750600x450.jpg

On the place before the church, were a lot of people in costumes, which we haven’t seen before.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Venedig/DSCN13181000x750600x450.jpg

And the best was that we got the chance to take some pictures with them together today. They were really friendly and it made a lot of fun, making photos together.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Venedig/DSCN13131000x750600x450.jpg

After a while we decided to have a look at the church.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Venedig/IMG_12451000x667600x400.jpg

Later we went back to the Piazza San Marco with the waterbus. We planned to climb up the Campanile di San Marco, the high Clock tower on the Piazza.
From so high above we had a wonderful look over Venice. Everything seemed to be so extremely small.

This is the Bridge between Venice and the Mainland.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Venedig/IMG_12771000x667600x400.jpg

And this is the stage for the Carnival contest 

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Venedig/DSCN13841000x750600x450.jpg

Here you could see the old bells.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Venedig/DSCN1413750x1000450x600.jpg

Then we went down to the Piazza again and enjoyed the rest of the day while watching some more costumes.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Venedig/DSCN12931000x750600x450.jpg

It was really a great ending of our trip to Venice today. I hope I get the chance to come here again.

At Home, Bochum, Germany - 18th February 2012

By: Shilo

Good Morning!

Today my mum told me, that I will travel to my first host. I’m really curious how it will be there. I think it will be really funny.

Because this is the last time that we were all together, we planned to go bowling

First we looked around and I explained the other, how to play the game.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Bowling%20februar/DSCN1514600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Bowling%20februar/DSCN1499600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Bowling%20februar/DSCN1498600x450.jpg

After that, I was searching for a bowling ball. Hmm I think I will take the red one today.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Bowling%20februar/DSCN1459600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Bowling%20februar/DSCN1460600x450.jpg

Hmm think I have to clean the ball a little bit, before we start.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Bowling%20februar/DSCN1487450x600.jpg

Because it was Saturday night there where a competition, which lane was the best in a certain time. Yeah, we made the third place in the competition.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Bowling%20februar/DSCN1457600x450.jpg

After a time, we needed a little Break. This game is very exhausting.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Bowling%20februar/DSCN1507600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Bowling%20februar/DSCN1511450x600.jpg

Then it was my turn. I am really good in this game.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Bowling%20februar/DSCN1515600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Bowling%20februar/DSCN1519600x450.jpg

At the end we were waiting for the final result.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Bowling%20februar/DSCN1473600x450.jpg

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Bowling%20februar/DSCN1474600x450.jpg

I was the winner and Snowball made the last place. So she was a little bit disappointed

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Bowling%20februar/DSCN1526600x450.jpg

I am the best  ;)

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Bowling%20februar/DSCN1506600x450.jpg

Now we are all very tired. Let’s go to bed.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Bowling%20februar/DSCN1527600x450.jpg

Bowling made a lot of fun and I think it was a great ending of the time that we spend together.

Bye bye

I am very happy because, my journey will start today. My first host will be Dr.Kröbner. I hope that we will have a lot of fun together.
Captain is also traveling to his new host today. I wish him a great journey.

So I have to say goodbye to my beloved family and to my new friends.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Abschied%20Captain%20und%20Ping/DSCN1571600x450.jpg

My friends hugged and said goodbye to me. I think I will miss my new friends. But hopefully we will meet again one day.

http://i1079.photobucket.com/albums/w503/Jasmin_Ogermann/Abschied%20Captain%20und%20Ping/DSCN1567600x450.jpg

Lamspringe, Germany - 26th February 2012

By: Dr.Kröbner

Hello Mum and Dad,

Thank God no rain so we decided to made a nice trip to an old

abbey from the Benedictine order in Lamspringe. But first we´ve

must taken a walk through the forest, because Mr. Shaun´s

sheepdog Paul we take care of at the moment, has to calm down a

little bit ;). So we hiked to a very, very old tree, tried to climb on it

while hostmom Andrea took nice pictures from us.

By sunshine we reached the monastery garden with many

attractions: a small millpond with ducks, an old watermill, strange

sculptures and funny bushes with red branches. The sun was

wonderfull warm and we had a lot of fun there :D

Fritzlar, Germany - 8th March 2012

By: Dr.Kröbner

Hello Mum and Dad,

a trip to Fritzlar with hostmum and Hoppsi

Fritzlar is a small German town (pop. 15,000) in the Schwalm-Eder district in northern Hesse, 160 km (99 mi) north of Frankfurt, with a storied history. It can reasonably be argued that the town is the site where the Christianization of northern Germany (north and east of the Roman Limes) began and the birthplace of the German empire as a political entity

here you see the old church...very old

The St. Peter's Cathedral is one of the most beautiful Romanesque-Gothic churches in Hesse.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7194/6963890751_5d189ffa5c_z.jpg

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7183/6963894605_a67d187f28_z.jpg

The Cathedral of Fritzlar measures 43 meters (from the basement to the top). He continues to shape the cityscape of the small town in the Schwalm-Eder-Kreis (formerly Circle Fritzlar-Homberg).

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7183/6963895911_5fbafd8264_z.jpg

built and rebuilt several times, combines the Cathedral of St. Peter Roman and Gothic styles. In the oldest part of the Fritzlarer Domes are the crypts, which can also be viewed as the Cathedral, ..but not in the moment :rolleyes:

look Mum a nice view in the Edertal...

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7055/6817773112_d34b91c0b3_z.jpg

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7188/6963897191_820bfd0a33_z.jpg

This is the Monk Boniface he felled the oak, without being met, the expected wrath of the locals Donars and built from the wood a church that was dedicated to St. Peter. This event is considered the beginning of Christianity, not only in this area of the present diocese of Fulda.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7183/6817768166_9cf18c18c6_z.jpg

The Town Hall in Fritzlar originated in Roman times (also called "bailiwick") and was first mentioned in documents in 1109

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7196/6963896855_0c1117cfdb_z.jpg

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7199/6817773368_4ddea1d678_z.jpg

The town hall is decorated with a stone relief from the 1441 Holy St. Martin, the patron saint of Fritzlar.

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7198/6817775778_ce11c76718_z.jpg

Even the rest of town around the market in Fritzlar is determined by imposing half-timbered buildings

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7053/6963884397_4e8a5671cf_z.jpg

I found this very old oven and look...the oven was built long ago in Delligsen...

Delligsen, Central Park, Germany - 19th March 2012

By: Dr.Kröbner

Hello Mum and Dad,

Yesterday we took a walk through the beautiful village where my

hostmum lives. Near the river Wispe I made a rest to take a look at

the first springgreens…. After a while hostdad hustle me to hurry

up…. Because the green is not so quick by growing ;)
