Lola Rabbit, Jungfraujoch, Switzerland


Posted Feb 28, 2012, 1:00 pm
Hello, I'm Lola Rabbit and I want to see the world. Mum quickly managed to arrange a host for me and my first destination is Sterzing in the north of Italy. I had a look on the map and saw that it's a journey of about 500 km. So I hope it won't take long to get there. I said good-bye to the other TV's and then I slipped into my envelope.

Bye, Lola.

Today I arrived in Sterzing. Immediately my host took my in his garden to show me the catkin. Beautiful! I'm so excited what I'm going to see next.  :rolleyes:

Hello there!
Today my host took me to a sightseeingtour at Sterzing. First I saw the town's landmark, called "Zwölferturm". The tower is about 46 meters high. Wow! In the pedestrian zone I saw the 510 years old town hall. I also saw the mediavel frontage, very impressive!

Posted Mar 11, 2012, 5:22 pm
Dear Mum,
today my host took me to a trip to the village called Mareit near Sterzing. There I visited the castle "Schloss Wolfsthurn". The castle has 365 windows and inside there is a museum of hunting. To arrive in Mareit I drove through a valley called Ridnaun and so I saw many beautiful mountains, who are still covered with snow.  ;)

Posted Apr 1, 2012, 7:22 pm
my host took me to two mediaeval castles near from Sterzing. The castle "Sprechenstein" is on the eathern site of the valley of Eisack. The castle is situated on a about 200 meters hill. Opposite of "Sprechenstein" is the castle "Reifenstein". This castle can be visited in the summer, but I saw it only from the outsite.  ;)

Hello mum,
on this sunny, but windy Sunday I made a little trip to the Mareiterbach. The water was very cold and I couldn't go swimming. So I only could take a seat on a stone at the waterside of the creek.

Posted Apr 11, 2012, 10:27 pm
Wow!  What a journey!  I have now arrived in the USA!

I was greeted by 3 other TVs - Peep, Milk Chocolate, and Big Glubschi.

My new hosts want to say a big thanks to Katharina for the wonderful chocolate!

My new friends are so nice!  I can't wait to get started on some great adventures!

Bye for now,

I woke up very confused this morning.  Somehow, Easter happened again!

After I woke up, I stretched out my ears like normal.  Something felt different.  Something was on me!  I jumped out of bed (just in case it was a spider).  I found myself wearing a beautiful dress!

I wanted to find a mirror and see me in my new dress.  But this is a new house to me, and I had no idea where to look.  I was just starting to look around when I spotted this -

My very own Easter Basket!  I was so excited.  Hop, Hop and...


Excuse me for a moment.

When the others awoke, I found out it was my new friend Peep who planned all this for me.  She knows how important Easter is to rabbits like me.  She didn't know that one of my life missions is to receive Easter Chocolates, but I am excited to have completed a life mission.  I gave her a big hug and said thanks.

Check out Peep's Travelog to see all of her preparations.

Bye for now!

A night out in the cool spring air sounded like fun.  So I packed my host into the car, and we went for a drive.  I wanted to find some cool city lights, but my host didn't want to wander too far from home.  We didn't find much.

I really liked the trees with streetlights shining on them.  I just love the way they glow!  So many trees around here have flowers on them right now.

This was my favorite tree so far.  I believe it is a crab apple tree.  Being all lit up at night made it look magical!

Rain is coming tomorrow, so we are going to stay inside and stay warm.


Posted Apr 14, 2012, 8:51 pm
Hi Mum!

Today the weather is beautiful!  Thunderstorms are coming tonight, so we decided to get out and enjoy the sun.

We found a park called Hidden Falls Park in St. Paul.  We took a long walk to look for the Falls.

Even in the forest there was a lot of sunshine!  Hopping in the grass felt good on my bunny feet!

I found a sandstone cliff.  The sandstone is very soft and easy to carve into with a stick or a stone.  Many people have carved names and pictures here.  Someone carved a hole the perfect size for me to sit and relax in.  However, it was a little too sandy for me.

Finally we found Hidden Falls!  The water level was quite low, but it's still very pretty.

On our way to the river, I stopped to climb a cherry tree.  The flowers smelled so good.

This is the Mississippi River.  The water is too cold to go for a swim, but the sun was warm and watching the boats was fun.  I wanted to hop in a boat and go for a ride.

I made a new friend at the beach.  This Yellow Swallowtail Butterfly was enjoying the sun as much as me.

I am a little nervous about the thunderstorms coming tonight, but here with my friends I should be safe.


Posted Apr 17, 2012, 9:03 am
Hey Mum!  Come here!  I got a surprise for you!

Greetings from Japan!


Just kidding!

Today I visited a Japanese Garden.  I wasn't the only visitor.  These two Canadian Geese greeted me.  They stopped by as they made their way back to Canada.

I also made friends with some Koi!  I didn't get too close, they were big enough to eat me!

I stopped to smell all the flowers!

This plum tree was my favorite!

See me in this one?

Here are a few more shots of the garden.  It was so beautiful there.

Bye for now,

Posted Apr 24, 2012, 4:46 am
It's been so cold and rainy that we've been staying warm and dry at home.  Finally today the sun came out!

We made a trip to Lake Calhoun and Lake Harriet!  This is Lake Calhoun.  Right behind my ear you can see the skyscrapers from Minneapolis.

It is still too cold to swim.  Building sand castles on the beach was fun!

This is nearby Lake Harriet.  These two lakes are connected by walking paths and both have paths that go all the way around them.

Our walk around the lake brought us to a Peace Garden.  The Peace Garden is a rock garden, but it has flowers too!

This little waterfall was very peaceful.  It was a great place to relax.

I hope to have more to post soon.



Posted Apr 26, 2012, 11:00 pm
Hi!  I tagged along for a quick trip to Wisconsin.  My host spent the day in the hospital visiting her new niece.  We did get out for a little bit and took a walk down by the St. Croix River.  This is the St. Croix Dam.

We were too busy at the hospital to take more pictures, but I had fun anyway.


Posted Apr 30, 2012, 11:55 pm
Hi Mum!

My friends and I took a walk to the playground.

My favorite thing was the biggest slide!  It takes lots of hopping to climb up, but the ride down is so fun and fast!

I had lots of fun playing in the sun!

Missing you!

Posted May 13, 2012, 2:18 am
Hi Mum!  Been missing you!

Today we took a ride in the car!  Here is my friends and I enjoying the ride.

We stopped at Hyland Lake.  It was so beautiful today!  Many people were out fishing.

After all the sunshine, we decided to take a break in the shade.  This is really one big tree, even though it looks like several little trees.

I am having a blast here! 

Posted May 21, 2012, 3:50 pm
Hi Mum!

We took a little trip today to Red Wing, Minnesota.  Red Wing is famous for it's shoe factory where they made Red Wing Shoes.  We had fun exploring the older part of downtown.

Luisa and I found this large shoe.

While exploring, I found lots of very cool looking churches.  This one was my favorite.  It looks like a castle!

Another one:

This building was very cool.  It has gargoyles!

Here I am sitting outside the train station.  How much fun would a train ride be?  I thought about sneaking off, but I didn't want to get lost.

We had to take a break and cool off in the shade.

While relaxing, we found this funny statue.  It made me giggle!

I had lots of fun here with all my new friends.

Lots of Love,

Hello Mum!

Today in America it is Memorial Day!  It is a day to honor and remember fallen soldiers.

We spent the day playing outside in the yard.  I did a little swinging.

I had fun looking around for flowers.

BlueBunny shared his Blue Bunny Ice Cream with us!

We had Birthday Bash Flavor.  It has cake, frosting and sprinkles right in the ice cream!

Best Wishes!

Posted Jun 3, 2012, 3:49 am
Hi Mum!

Today we took a trip to Maplewood.  On the way there, we drove through Minneapolis.  So many big buildings!

We stopped by a place called Great Moon Buffet.  They had really good Chinese food!  My favorite was the Cream Cheese Wontons!

To the Mall!  I can't wait to go shopping!

So many stores!  What's with all those lights?

It's a Carousel!  Here at the mall!

On the way home, we drove past this car.  I really like it!  It's so little and cute.


Posted Jun 11, 2012, 1:04 am
Hi Mum!

Sadly, my pretty pink dress had an accident involving some chocolate pudding.  It wasn't pretty.

My host made me a new dress!  This one is yellow, with a green belt.  It's a little longer than the pink one, and has fringes on the bottom.  I think it's very cool!

After I got my new dress, I found out that my friend Peep is leaving tomorrow for her own adventure.  I was very sad to have to say goodbye.

I'm enjoying summer here, and I hope it's as beautiful back home.

Miss you!

Posted Jun 21, 2012, 3:43 am
Hey Mum!

Just a quick update today.  I have a secret to tell you!  I like driving really really really fast!

That is all.

Posted Jun 21, 2012, 3:55 am
Hello Mum!

Today we visited the Mall of America here in Minnesota.  This place is HUGE!  It is so big that there is an amusement park inside the mall.  It's called Nickelodeon Universe.  It looks like fun!

Underneath the Mall there is a giant aquarium full of fish, sharks and turtles.  I think I found Nemo!

The Rainforest Cafe looked very cool.  In the restaurant, they have lots of animal statues.  Every 30 minutes, they shut off the lights and have a thunderstorm and the apes go crazy!  It was very noisy.

After all that walking around, we decided to stop for a break.  This bench is a model of the bench from the movie Forrest Gump.

I had a great time today.


Posted Jun 21, 2012, 3:59 am
Hi again!

Today is the Summer Solstice.  It is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.  I was really hoping to go out and enjoy some of the sun, but it rained all afternoon.  It's still raining now.

I did sneak outside for a few minutes to watch the sunset.  It was just to pretty to miss!

Posted Jun 27, 2012, 6:26 am
Hello from Minneapolis!

After a ride on the Light Rail Train we found ourselves in Minneapolis.

I was really hoping to find a skyscraper that I could go up on to see the city.

The glass building behind me is called the IDS Tower.  It is the biggest building here in Minnesota.  Sadly, I don't think we can visit the top of it.

Wow that sun is bright!  This is the Foshay Tower.  It used to be the tallest building.  I think it was built in the 1920s.  Now it is a hotel called The W Hotel.

At the top of the Foshay Tower, there is a museum and an observation deck.  Up we go!  What a wonderful view of the city!

31 stories up!

After all that excitement, my friend Luisa and I stopped to share a mini donut.  So much sugar!

I'm having so much fun in the sun!

Posted Jul 5, 2012, 8:11 pm
Hi Mum!

July 4th is America's Independence Day.  A lot of people celebrate by watching fireworks.  Even though we are in the middle of a heat wave, we decided to venture out and watch some too.

My host won some tickets to ride the Fireworks Train.  First a scenic train ride, then fireworks!

It's still very hot, but the train ride was fun!  With the windows open, we could cool down a little.  So many trees!  The conductor had to stop the train once to move a tree that fell on the tracks.

Here we are relaxing on our blanket waiting for the sky to get dark.  The sun has finally gone down, and it is cooling off a little.

Getting dark!  My yellow glow stick makes it easy to find me in the dark.  The wait is almost over!  Look at all the people who came out to see the fireworks.

The tree blocked out view a little, but the fireworks were amazing!

After the fireworks, we took the train back.  It stayed very hot all night, but it was a wonderful adventure.  It will be my last adventure here because very soon I will travel to a new host!  I can't wait to have even more adventures!

Lots of Love,

Posted Jul 8, 2012, 9:38 pm
Away I go!

I am headed back to Germany for lots of new adventures!  I can't wait to meet my new host!

Hi mum
After a hot and long journey (customs arrested us for a few day's) Salmonella and i arrived safely in Switzerland

When our box was opened (we traveled first class - a box not an envelope) we first saw a bit of daylight and than two furry noses.

We climbed out and became a warm welcome and hugs.

After introducing ourselves we shared the chocolade we brought from germany.

Then was time for lunch. We had sandwiches and icetea. Oh, so good after seven days of diet.

Thousand kisses from your little rabbit

Hi mum

Yesterday a neighbor brought host mum a zucchini (courgette) a big zucchini, a green giant.

What do with this crocodile?? We decided to bake a cake. Works with carotts, why not with zucchini.
So Pettersson (the little moose) and i grated a piece of crocodile

Salmonella mixed butter and sugar.

I added three eggs.

Then melted chocolade, flower, nuts, baking soda and crocodile.

Then we filled the dough in a baking dish.

One hour later, we could taste our cake. Yummy!!

Bye, bye mum

Hi mum
After a heavy thunderstorm in the night and a lot of rain in the morning, we took advantage of the first ray of sunshine for a little excursion. We drove through small villages and i saw lots of green meadows and cows.

We drove higher and higher into the mountains. Then we reached Schwägalp, a small pass 1352 meters above sea level.

With a cableway can reach the summit of Säntis. At 2502 meters above sealevel, Säntis is the tallest mountain in the Alpstein massif. The mountain is a highly visible landmark to its exposed northerly location within theAlpstein massif. From the summit six countries can be seen, if weather allows. Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Lichtenstein, France and Italy.

Looking for the summit.

Here you can see me as a free climber!!

Having a little break.

After a little walk arround Schwägalp we enjoyed a big icecream. Yumyum.

Host mum told us, in April 1999, just beneath the summit of Säntis on the northern snowfield, a snow height of 816 cm was recorded.
There was also a murder, happened in winter 1922. The weather station keeper and his wife were murdered. It was only discovered because of missing weather reports. The truth about this double murder hence remains unclear to this day. Sooo scary.

We also visited a dairy.

First i had a ride on a cow.

Then i saw the big copper kettle in wich the milk is heated.

I had a look in the cheese cellar and to handicrafts.

After a last look at the summit we were on our way home.

A tired but happy little rabbit says bye, bye after a beautifull and exiting day.

Love, Lola

Güezi mum
I've learned a bit swiss dialect. Sounds funny. This morning, after breakfast, while host mum took a shower, we (Salmonella, Pettersson, Angeli and i) decided to play a game. It's called "crazy maze"

We were so absorbed in the game, that we did'nt notice that's lunch time. For lunch we had a swiss specialty: Bratwurst and Röschti. And carrots!! I loved it.

After lunch and a little nap, host mum brought an envelope. We all were very curious to see what's probably in there.

Fiete was inside. We welcomed him warmly and he showed us his gifts.

Oho mum, there is still something i must tell you. I'm sleeping in a waterbed. Sound's good,  except you have to share your bed with a fish. This fish is jumping around on the mattress EVERY NIGHT until we're green in the face.

I have to talk with host mum, maybe ther's an aquarium.
Lots of kisses from your little(greenish) rabbit.

Hello Mum
Yesterday the weather wasn't good. Afternoon it started to rain. So we had a lazy day. While i was listening music,

Angeli looked at some strange pictures,

Pettersson was dreaming of Sweden

and Salmonella couldn't decide which book she want to read.

Then was time to prepare dinner. PIZZA!!!
We gave flower into a bowl

added yeast, water, salt and some olive oil

and mixed yery well, (or let machine do)

After a while put the dough on a baking tray. Looks good.

Tomato sauce, Mozzarella and ham spread on it. Looks better.

After baking looks best.

And than we enjoyed our Pizza. It was sooo good!!

Send you a lot of pizza kisses, mum.

Hi mum
Host mum called us TV's yesterday:"We are going to visit the biggest city of Switzerland." So we jumped into her bag and off we went.

The weather didn't look very good.

After what feels like 100 hours (we were in a traffic jam) we arrived at Zürich, the biggest city of Switzerland.

There we visited the first thing "Prime Tower", the highest building of Switzerland. Completed 2011, 126 meters high, 36 floors.

From entrance to the first floor we had to use stairs. Then an elevator to 35th floor. From there everything looked sooo small.

When we go on to famous Bahnhofstrasse, with all its expensive shops, weather was getting worse and worse. Didn't matter, we had raincovers.

I saw some famous shops.

And Lindt und Sprüngli, the luxury swiss chocolate and confectionery company.

I quickly sat on a Rolls Royce.

I saw swiss national bank, stock market and expensive hotels.

We walked on to lake Zürich, had small talk with a swan and saw one of many excursion boats.

We discovered a nice clock, build with flowers,

and a small harbor for sailing- and motorships.

A little look around, and then go on. The weather was to nasty.

After a little walk we reached old town with Frauenmünster, one of the wellknown churches and a nice place in old town.

We walked on to Grossmünster, another church, and to river Limmat.

This was my day in Zürich. At night i felt into my bed exhausted.
I love this city - and i love you mum.
Your little rabbit

Hi mum
This morning weather was a bit better. This we used, to play on the balcony. Host mum has so many herbs here, it looks like a garden. There are chives, parsley, rosemary, thyme mint, basil, arugula and a small olivetree. One can hide wonderfull.

And afterwards you smell soo good. Now i'm in a hurry, host mum has called. There's something to do.
Love you mum

Posted Sep 5, 2012, 6:00 pm
Hi mum
It is autumn here in Switzerland. It rained a lot in the last few days and it's getting colder, no weather for my sundress. Host mum has knitted me a pullover. Do I look good?

Yesterday Pettersson, the little moose, has received an invitation to Germany. At night, when everyone was asleep, we celebrated a small farewell party. With sparkling wine, olives, Swiss cheese and Italian breadsticks. We have lit candles and sang songs.

This morning we all hugged Pettersson and wished a safe journey.

Host mum then brought him to the post. Upon their return, we harvested basil.

We've plucked the leaves from the stems

and then mixed them with salt and olive oil.

This paste, we have filled in small glasses.

Host mum used them in the winter for salad dressings, soups and tomato sauce. Maybe the weather is better tomorrow, then we can go hiking to the small river nearby.

Many greetings from your little rabbit

Posted Sep 7, 2012, 8:35 pm
Hi mum

When we awoke this morning, the sun was shining. We knew today we can go to the small river Thur. Host mum told us that the source is on the Säntis, and after 134 km. flows into the river Rhine. After a short hike we reached a bridge and had a great view in a romantic valley.

We crossed the river Thur and climbed up a steep path. We kept walking along a narrow forest path,

and heard a noise in the distance. Between moss-covered rocks (the photos are not so good, it was too dark), we saw a small waterfall.

We had to climb down a steep, narrow path to get to shore.

We crept through between large boulders and were finally at the waterfall.

At the root of a fallen tree, we rested a bit.

This place looked very mysterious.

After a while we wandered on, always up the hill and came upon a large meadow.
On a bench we had a rest and drank some water to refresh.

From here we had a nice view.

On the way home

we saw beautiful flowers, elderflower and pear trees.

On the other bank of the river Thur we played a bit with stones and looked into the green water.

It was a beautiful day.

Posted Sep 9, 2012, 12:26 pm
Hi mum, yesterday we took a trip to St. Gallen, the capital of the canton. We drove through nice little places and through beautiful countryside with lots of woods and meadows.

Now and then we saw cows grazing.

St.Gallen, with 73,000 inhabitants, is the largest town in Canton.

St.Gallen is known especially because of the monastery and the abbey library. But even the old city with the many small streets is worth seeing.

In contrast to the many old buildings, the city government is very modern.

We strolled through the monastery courtyard and admired the Cathedral.

In the old monastic buildings today, the cantonal government is housed.

The Cathedral has been described as one of the last monumental Baroque monasteries in the western world. It was completed in  1766.

The monks who founded the library books Considered as medicine for the spirit. The 150,000 strong collection continues to inspire visitors and scholars today.
Only 30,000 of the library's collection - books and manuscripts - can be seen. Some books are simply to precious to be shown in plublic. There are 400 books that are more than 1000 years old. Photographing was of course strictly forbidden.

The Convent of St. Gallen is Unesco world heritage site since 1983.

After visiting the monastery we had earned a break.

On the way home we host dad has shown the soccer stadium.

Coincidentally, we were able to witness a Désalpe.

From a distance we saw once again Säntis

and beautiful farmhouses.

Say bye, bye after an exiting day.
Love you mum
P.S. Think i did two missions at same time. What do you think, mum??

Posted Sep 11, 2012, 1:57 pm
Hi mum
yesterday was our host brother's proposal to visit the Churfirsten. The Churfirsten are a mountain range in the valley of Toggenburg. This Plating comprises seven peaks, all over 2000 meters high.

Therefore host mum calls it the mountains of Snow White. "Behind the seven hills, where the seven dwarfs ..." So we were on our way.

In perfect weather we drove up the Toggenburg to Alt St. Johann.

This small village is incidentally the hometown of the famous ski jumper Simon Ammann.

From there we took a cable car up the mountain to Alp Sellamatt, 1400 meters above sea level.

We had a wonderful view over the valley and the Säntis on the other side.

First, we walked along a path called the Sound Trail.

While hiking the sound path you can experience "how stone sounds",

or feel, how a tree transports sounds, or try out 23 different instruments. It was very funny.

We also saw pigs.

They looked very satisfied.

Later we came to a road that is called Path of Legends.

An exciting walk taking in several adventure stories, mythical legends and fantastic tales from Toggenburg.

Finally, we have looked at the Luke Chapel.

The ecumenical chapel of St. Luke is a few steps above the mountain inn surrounded by ancient firs.

This chapel fulfilled family Lötscher a big desire. They named it after their first grandson Luke.  On a stone wall in front of the chapel we marveled once again the beautiful scenery.

Then we were on our way home.

After another exciting, wonderful day we fell into bed tired.

Bye for today
Your little rabbit Lola

Hi mum,
Last night there was a thunderstorm and it began to rain. When we woke up this morning, it was still raining. At breakfast, we thought about what we could do today. It looked like a boring day. We sat on the balcony and watched the rain, when we heard a loud murmur. We asked host mum what it is. I show it to you, she said, grabbing us in her bag, took the umbrella and off we went. The way  looked familiar, we went to the river Thur. Ooh, what a difference. You remember the romantic gorge?

The gentle green river?

Nothing more to see, only a brown flood.

When we opened the mailbox at home, we found a surprise. A packet.

We were curious to know what's inside.

We opened it and out came -  zebra.

We welcomed and cuddled it.

Zebra is from Denmark and is married. Her full name is: Zebra Fru Hansen. Zebra brought many sweets and a card from home.

The day was not as boring as we thought.
See you, mum

Hallihallo mum

Today host mum was very busy. Therefore, I entertain myself. Here I stand on a real catwalk,

host mum has built it for the cats. They love to sit in the highest. I discovered a beautiful orchid.

Here I sit on the cat tree house.

Timi and I were really good friends,

and you can cuddle with Runa very well.

On Sunday we will make another trip. I'll get back then.
Love you mum

Hi mum
Sunday we left early. We had a long journey ahead of us. First we went towards Grisons, the easternmost canton of Switzerland. On the Rickenpass we had a great view of Lake Zurich and the Glarus Alps.

At a rest area on Lake Walen we could consider the Churfirsten from the back.

We had fun on a playground

and sat on a bench, made ​​specially for us :-)). The inscription means: Here are the little ones, the largest.

Next we drove past the Heidiland near Maienfeld and Bad Ragaz.

We passed through pretty villages

and stopped at a little old bridge.

This bridge crosses the young Rhine.

We drove on

and reached the village of Disentis,

with his old monastery.

There we had lunch. Capuns, a specialty of the Grisons.

The mountains were higher and narrower the streets.

Then we arrived at our first destination, the Oberalp Pass.

Here rises the Upper Rhine.

Next, we visited the Schöllenen canyon with the Devil's Bridge and the Suvorov monument.

It is reminiscent of the battles between General Suvorov and Napoleon in 1799. We continued on to our next destination,

the Klausen Pass, which is 1948 meters high.

The prospect of fresh snow covered mountains was breathtaking.

We sat down in a snow rest

and enjoyed the sun and the view.

The ride home, we have overslept.
Hugs and kisses for you, mum

Hi mum
This morning host mum has introduced a new family member. He's called Hemming and he is a little wolf. Host mum has found him yesterday in a store. He was so alone on a shelf, there she could not resist and took him. On the balcony, we told him about our travels and adventures.

He begged until host mum allowed him to be a TV. Hemming told us that he is a friendly wolf. He is only grumpy when he does not get anything sweet. Therefore, we have baked cinnamon buns.

Better safe than sorry.
That's it for today. Best regards

Hi mum,
Today a new TV arrived. Host mum brought a small package.

We were all very curious to see what is probably in there. The big cat had to be the first stick their nose into it, as always.

Then very carefully a little pelican crawled out.

We welcomed and embraced him warmly.

And here he is, our new friend: Sausi Karl.

Have a nice day, mum

Hi mum,
This morning we said goodbye to Zebra.

She was only here for a short visit. Now she travels home to look after her husband before traveling on. At first we were a little sad but then the doorbell rang, and the postman brought a special delivery. On Saturday? We were all very excited.

Carolin it was from Vienna.

The Post had forgotten on Friday. Host mum was a bit afraid she might be lost. But now she's here and we have warmly welcomed.

If the weather is better tomorrow, we make another trip.
Until then mum

Love Lola

Hi mum,
Yesterday morning the weather was not really nice, but it was dry. Therefore, we decided to explore the next piece Switzerland. No one betrayed us where it's going.

After a while we saw a sign: Rhine Falls.

And when angels travel, the sun came out. We parked at the Schloss Laufen and could already hear from afar powerful noise. Through the castle gate

we came to the old courtyard with its battlements and arrow slits.

By a staircase with various viewpoints we came closer and closer to the Rhine Falls.

We saw small boats that you can drive to the Rhine Falls. It looked from the top right dangerous.

But the platforms were exciting enough, you could not hear yourself speak, so loud were the water masses, and the water sprayed in your face.

Afterwards we looked at a small antique furniture exhibition in the castle.

On some chairs felt like a king.

On the way home through Zurich's wine country we saw huge pumpkins

and tasted of the grapes.

So mum, that's it for today. See you soon.

your little rabbit, Lola

HiHo mum
Yesterday host mum has started her new job. So we were alone at home. First it was a little boring but then we had a great idea. We play Pirates of the Caribbean. In the kitchen and in the office, we found everything we needed. Chopsticks, trivets, plastic bowls,

paper and glue. A pirate flag we printed on the computer.

It was hard work, but it was worth it.

We had lot of fun.

The bathroom was a bit under water but only a bit, honorable word.
Love you mum

Hi mum,
Today we went to Einsiedeln. Einsiedeln is a small town in the canton of Schwyz, and known for its baroque church and the Black Madonna.

It is also a place of pilgrimage on the Camino. Unfortunately, the photograph is not allowed in the monastery church. Host mum is looking online for a picture, the church is really beautiful,

you could not tell by the weather, it was foggy, wet and cold. With hot chestnuts, we warmed up a bit.

Then we visited the ski jump.

It is a plastic covered jump and is used for summer training.

Even the students of the high school sports train here.

At home host mum has made a special dinner - Raclette.

Melted cheese with potatoes, cucumbers, onions, sweet and sour homemade pumpkin and more.

It tasted wonderful.

Bye mum

Hello mum
This morning we found a well-known envelope on the table. With an address on it. Curious, we tried to figure out where things are headed, and above all who is going to travel.

Fiete is the lucky one, he can travel to Finland. At first we were all a bit sad Fiete is leaving us, but we were happy for him too. Hemming had to distract him at the computer,

while we have baked a farewell cake.

Fiete enjoyed immensely.

Then he was allowed to fill his belly with fruit. You never know how long the journey lasts. Then he packed up his cap, in Finland it can be very cold, a few sweets and a card of host mum.

We gave him a big group hug

and he slipped into his envelope.

We will miss him. Bye, bye Fiete, bon voyage, and
bye, bye mum


Posted Oct 2, 2012, 2:52 pm
Hello mum,

we had not much time to be sad because Fiete is gone. As host mum came from the post she brought a new envelope. As always, we were a bit curious, really just a little bit.

Our new guest called Nils and has traveled from Finland.

It took a long time, host mum had been worried. But now he is here and we have warmly welcomed him.

He is glad to be free again and ready for new adventures with us.

Best regards,
your little rabbit Lola

Hi mum, today there is not much to report. The weather is bad and we were bored. Host mum made ​​the suggestion to bake waffles. We were immediately impressed. We have put all the ingredients ready and started to stir the dough.

Hemming should beat the eggs, but he has thrown the whole. Unfortunately we can not show you all the fun right because host mum's camera is broken. Times it works sometimes not. Tomorrow she gets a new one. The waffles were great.

The first we had to try immediately.

After dinner we had waffles with vanilla cream and berries. Too bad that you can not see us, as we feasted.

Greetings home

Hi mum,

Today the weather was beautiful and we visited St.Iddaburg.

This is a prime vantage point with view up to Lake Constance

In addition, here is a sanctuary. The church we were not able to visit because a wedding was taking place. Best of luck!
The pilgrimage church of St. Iddaburg located where the old Toggenburg in the Middle Ages, the family seat of the Counts of Toggenburg stood. Here lived in the middle of the 12th Century came from the wider audience of Habsburg Idda, wife of IV Diethelm of Toggenburg. Withith the Lourdes Grotto, builded 1888

and the Black Madonna in the church,  St. Iddaburg is also a popular place of pilgrimage. We stopped at a small fountain

and a playground.

On the way back we saw a Harley, and we could not resist. We had to sit on it.

Born to be wild!!

Wish you a nice weekend


Posted Oct 9, 2012, 12:24 am
Hi mum,
  Host dad has holidays and has suggested that we drive to Lake Constance. At 9 clock in the morning we started. In Lindau, we had a small break and looked around a bit. The weather was gray and foggy at first, but that gave the lake a particular mood. Here you can see the harbor entrance with the lighthouse and the Bavarian lion.

Also on the harbor is Mangenturm. An old lighthouse, which was from 1180-1300 in operation.

Beautiful is the old town hall, built 1422.

And the city museum. And then we discovered in a small side street this mammoth tree growing else in America.

Our journey continued to Meersburg. This superb small town is divided into Upper Town and Lower Town. The lower town is on the lake, has a lot of nice restaurants, art shops and wine bars. Here we ate a bite and tasted the new wine.

By the lakeside promenade are palm trees and banana trees.

You can see the state winery and the Droste-Hulshoff high school.

This is the lower city gate.

In the upper town is the old Meersburg.

In many small, steep streets are beautiful half-timbered houses.

On the way home we used the ferry to Konstanz.

The wind was cold and the sky was gray,

but it was a great feeling.
It's late and I'm tired. Goodnight mum

Posted Oct 9, 2012, 1:57 pm
Hi mum,
the weather is atrocious. It rains only once, from morning until evening. But then the doorbell rang, and an envelope was delivered. A new TV. We tried to read the sender but it was strange letters and characters.

Not even Karl Sausi could read it, and he can write in 4 languages Mum and Dad. Host mum opened the envelope

and a nice, white little bear looked out anxiously.

Shy Meomie told us, Meomie that's her name, she comes from Vietnam.

It is her first trip. Okay, then she obviously can not know what happens when a group of "old TV's" gets an envelope in his paws. The big cat came to greet too, what else.

  Then host mum showed us on the computer where Vietnam is.

Ooh, a very long journey.

I hope Meomie feel so well as I do.


Posted Oct 12, 2012, 1:23 pm
Hi mum,
Yesterday we visited host mum's daughter. She is head chef at a hotel on Lake Thun. On our way there we made ​​a short stop at the base of the Pilatus Railway, the steepest cogwheel railway in the world.

Pilatus is good 2000 meters high and the local mountain of Lucerne. We passed on Lungerensee.

This lake is very popular with fishermen. Pike, lake trout and whitefish are some of the fish here.

From an elevated vantage point we had a fantastic view of the lake and surrounding mountains.

We passed the Brünigpass who disappeared in the fog. The weather was weird anyway. One minute blue skies and sunshine, the next moment a thick fog, like here on Lake Brienz.

We drove on and came to Interlaken, a popular tourist destination. The most famous hotel, the Grand Hotel Victoria - Jungfrau.

This under monument protection hotel began as a Guesthouse Victoria. A few years later the neighboring Hotel Jungfrau was bought. Both houses were then connected with a central part.

In good weather, you have a great view of the Jungfrau massif with the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau. We saw only fog.

On partial adventurous roads

we reached the Lake of Thun. Here the weather meant something better with us.

We hung around in the garden of the hotel

and had a good view of the lake and the mountains.

On the way home we had to drive the long way because on the highway, an accident happened. But without this detour we would have missed this evening atmosphere.

Hugs and Kisses

Posted Oct 12, 2012, 5:18 pm
Hi mum
it's me again. A new TV has arrived.

A little rat named Twix.

He was still a bit sleepy when we took him this morning from its cover. We welcomed him kindly

and gave him a group hug.

As the big cat greeted him, he got the shock of his life.

But he has recovered. I think we will have lots of fun with him.


Posted Oct 15, 2012, 9:08 pm
Hi mum,
Yesterday we made a trip to Klosters and Davos. The weather was cloudy and cold. We needed something to warm up. Thick skin and hot coffee was the right thing.

Klosters is a small village

with hotels, hotels, hotels. Some pretty, some not.

Then we drove on to Davos, the highest town in Europe. Host mum finds Davos ugly. Too many ugly buildings in this wonderful scene. This is the main street of Davos.

Here we pose in front of the Hilton hotel.

The most beautiful thing we saw in Davos was this small lake.

Because we all wanted to see the snow, host dad drove to the Flüela Pass.

You can see how high it is?

The snow was very close, but it melts during the day.

It's still a bit too warm. Whoa, too warm. It was 3 degrees. The pass looks like a moonscape.

Only stones and boulders fields.

Slightly lower down, we saw the most beautiful larch forests.

Golden Autumn. This newly built bridge

took us back home.

Hope you are well, miss you.


Sorry for so much fingers, host mum has a new camera, she is learning.

Posted Oct 24, 2012, 3:57 pm
Hello all at home,

Our last trip was to the Principality of Lichtenstein.

In Vaduz, the capital, we saw the town hall.

It was built in 1932/33. The castle was built in the 13th Century and serves as the residence of the royal family.

Therefore it can not be visited. We saw a miniature of the castle.

The Principality is also very famous for its stamps. In the pedestrian zone known examples are shown for road paving. Here you see the special stamp in honor of the wedding of the crown prince.

Lichtenstein is also known for its banks.

Here is the National Bank. This building is home to the parliament.

On our way home we had a great view over the Rhine Valley.

Best regards

Hi all
when we woke up this morning host mum said we should look out the window.

Snow! Over night snow had fallen and it still snows. We immediately put on our hats and scarves and went out onto the balcony.

What a beauty.

Meomie has never seen snow. She was almost mad with joy. After  played a few times in the snow, our host mum called back to the apartment. They pulled us out of the wet clothes and grabbed us in a warm blanket.

Was that a fun.

Hello mum,
yesterday we made ​​another trip. To Appenzell, where the famous cheese comes from. On our way there we drove through the foothills.

The weather was so-so. Cloudy and cold.

In Appenzell we saw many brightly painted houses.

This is the town hall.

Then we visited the show dairy.

Here we could see how Appenzeller cheese is made.

The cheese cellar is huge.

Here you see a small part of it.

In the museum a cheese hut is recreated. We sat down in a copper pot in which the milk is heated.

Then we lay in the bed of the dairy maid.

At the end of our trip we have set ourselves on a cow.

That was very funny.

Many greetings, Lola

Hello mum

  as host mum came home from work, she brought an envelope

We were very curious, as always. The envelope was nibbled.

A corner was missing.

The Post had noticed it and pulled a transparent cover over it.

When we opened all the envelopes, came out a little rabbit

We introduced ourselves and embraced.

I was very pleased to welcome a little rabbit.

Then we had to take a nap. Two birthday parties make successively tired. I think we will have lots of fun with bunny.

Hello mum and all at home,

  One week it was gray and damp. Today we had enough of the fog and decided to look for the sun. The Tannenbodenalp was the destination of our excursion. The Alp is located about 1400 meters above sea level. It should be high enough for the sun. After a few minutes driving time we saw the sea of ​​fog below us.

On the Tannenbodenalp we had gorgeous weather

and a good view to the mountains

On a small bank, we took a short break.

We enjoyed the beautiful weather and the view.

On our way home we admired the autumn mood at the lake.

The sunset made a beautiful day perfect.

I love all you

after three weeks of rain (Jasper can not remember such a terrible winter) we were finally able to back outside. No sun but dry. We all wanted to play in the snow. And for snow we had up high, very high. Sledding on Schwägalp was funny.

Then Jasper had the idea of ​​visiting the Santis.

So we took the cable car and were on our way to Säntis peak.

At the top station we admired an exhibition of various museums around.

Then we reached the summit. It was so cold and windy.
Everything was frozen.

This is the weather station.

And that's the big TV antenna.

On our way back we even saw the sun.

It was a wonderful day.

Hello together
Yesterday morning we had to get up very early. At 7 clock we sat on the train.

Our first stop was Zurich. There, we had just enough time to photograph the station

and to find out where the journey takes. We will travel to Basel. Basel is one of the oldest cities in Switzerland, located on the River Rhine. The city, near the border with Germany and France is known for its chemical industry. After our arrival in Basel,

we saw only a few steps from the train station Strasbourg Monument

and the Bank for International Settlements.

Our route took us to Elisabeth church

next to the Theatre. We had a short break at the Tinguely fountain.

This fountain, called Fasnacht Fountain was a gift of a great food discounter to the city of Basel.

Then we saw the Basel Cathedral,

located on the cathedral hill high above the Rhine. We had a magnificent view of the river and part of the city.

The skyscrapers that you see in the center of the image, is the fair tower.

Through narrow streets

we found our way to the river Rhine. We crossed the "Middle Bridge" and could see the old town from the other side.

On our way back we saw the red city hall.

It was built in 1504-1514. After these many impressions we were exhausted and slept through the journey home. I hope you like Basel as much as I.
Greetings, Lola

Host dad had secretly eaten a TV Muffin, therefore Troot had to eat a big one.

Then he packed his things and slipped into the envelope. We all wished him a good trip

As long as one can show us yet, she said. Then we ate cake and potato chips and crackers. We drank one or another glass of wine.

Late at night we came upon a sentimental mood. Hase sang with fervor sad songs

until Jasper woke up and reminded us that even more people live in this house who want to sleep now. We had a last drink and went to bed.
This morning it was time. We said goodbye to HelgaHH and Rocky. We gave both a group hug

the weather is going crazy. On Wednesday the sun was shining (as Jasper had to work) and it was 14 degrees. Then we had bucketfuls of rain and storm. This morning it started to snow again. Within ten minutes everything was white. No chance to go outside. And then the bad luck, Jasper has a torn ligament in the foot. Dolivia, she is a pharmacy TV gives us instructions on how we have to maintain her.

We'll get her back on her feet. On both feet.
Until then

Hi ,
Last night we bet that we are going to have Wednesday's weather. We won. Wednesday's weather means good weather in the morning when Jasper works and rain, snow, storm or doomsday when she comes home. Every Wednesday, the same game. But today, something was different. Jasper brought an envelope. We are all long enough TV's to know what that means. A new guest has arrived. Jasper opened the envelope. Curious, we stuck our noses into it.

A small, green turtle looked towards us a little bit shy.

Cosily she climbed out and introduced himself.

Shakespeare is his name and he brought gummy bears as greeting gift.

I think he's a nice guy and we will have fun together.

Hello to all
Finally, after many days of bad weather, the sun is shining today. Jasper immediately grabbed us and we went on a winter walk. First we drove a short distance by car.

But then we enjoyed the sun, the fresh air and the beautiful view.

We trudged through the snow (80 cm. High) over small bridges,

through narrow gorges

and tunnels with huge icicles.

We rested on the bench,

which could be seen in the deep snow barely.

Enjoy the pictures as I have enjoyed the walk.

Hello, it's me,
Yesterday was my birthday. Blindfolded my girlfriend Hase led me to the dining room.

I heard whispers and laughter. Then she took off the blindfold

and all my friends sang happy birthday and wished me all the best.

I got lots of presents, a marzipan bunny,

colored pencils

and a big chocolate cake with a candle.

I blew out the candle

and Jasper brought chocolate for all.

Later, we sat together, ate a lot of sweets

and told many stories. And then came the best part: I got my own ToyVoyager. A tiny, cute zebra.

That's it for today, I'm very busy. I need to talk with my zebra.

Posted Feb 14, 2013, 6:51 pm
Today was beautiful weather. Sun much as you wanted. The best thing was, Jasper did not have to work and we could take a winter walk. We walked up and down through the glistening snow.

The sky was blue, the sun was shining, what more could you want?

An adventure! On our way we saw the sign to the waterfall. The road really just a path is a little dangerous. Narrow, steep and icy in the winter. We begged so much until Jasper gave her ok. First she checked the phone connection. (In case we need the fire brigade or the helicopter to get us out.) Then it went off.

From time to time our heart beat a little faster.

And then we saw the waterfall is an icefall now.

Everything around him was covered with ice.

It looked great. That was our way back.

Exhausting, but we did it.


Posted Feb 16, 2013, 11:54 am
I have already told you that I got a own TV for my birthday. Here he is.

Stripes is his name and I love him dearly.

But since I have him, I'm very busy. He's a really curious, small zebra. He climbs all over and sniff everything.

I have a serious word talk to him.

A little bit later I showed him my Travelog at ToyVoyagers.

He was thrilled. As soon as possible, he would like to be a real TV. So we wrote a Pm to Olgamaus for an ID.

Now I have to calm down my little zebra. He can hardly wait.
Bye, bye for now

The sheep and the sweets.

What did you think.
Sweet dreams

Hi all,
what a boring week. Jasper had to work full time, the weather was bad (two weeks with no sun, no more snow, but fog and rain) and host dad was sick. But yesterday we had a lot of fun. We celebrated Lille's birthday.

She got a huge cake, a big lollipop and a little sheep. All kissed and hugged her and wished her all the best.

Then she blew out the candle

and cut the cake.

It was great fun.

I hope that next week things will get better.
See you,

Hello together,
I hope you are well. Today we are preparing another farewell party. Dolivia will leave us and go to Greece. With our new Shopping Cart

(Jasper brought it last week) we plundered all the cupboards and found much useful for a party.

We had almost everything together,

We made one last group photo,

and hugged our friend.

Bye bye Dolivia have a lot of fun, much more adventure and a safe journey.
See you

What we did not know at this point - Rico will leave us also. He travels to Greece, to the same host as Dolivia. We hugged him

and wished him a good trip.

Then they both slipped into the envelope and started their journey.

Happy Easter!
although it looks more like Christmas. Due to bad weather (snow again) we must search the Easter Bunny in the apartment. We searched long and found plenty. Everywhere chocolate bunnies, eggs and other sweets were hidden.

We needed our shopping cart to transport everything.

Later, we had a delicious breakfast.

I wish you a nice day,
your Lola

Today a new TV arrived. Jasper brought a heavy package and we were very excited to see what or who is in it.

The first thing was a postcard,

then came sweets

and then a bunch of money.

The last climbed out a small panda bear.

We greeted her warmly and introduced ourselves.

Her name is Lilo and she is from Germany.
We will definitely have lots of fun together.
Yours, Lola

Hi to all
Last weekend Jasper promised a special trip for Thursday, when the weather is good - really good. So we kept our fingers crossed for the whole week, but the weather forecast was not promising. Host dad decided: We try.
Thursday: Get up 5 clock in the morning, Departure 1 hour later. Much too early for TV's. Therefore, we slept on during the car ride.
As Jasper woke us the next time we were in Interlaken train station. The ticket showed us: We travel to the Jungfraujoch.

To the highest train station in Europe. The first train took us to Grindelwald

at the foot of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, the well-known mountains in the Bernese Oberland. There, we changed the train to Kleine Scheidegg, the starting point for the trekkers climbing the Eiger North Face.
Here you see this notorious mountain wall, which has so many climbers cost their lives.

Next, we boarded the red train to the Jungfraujoch.

This train is required in addition to the normal rails a gear to overcome the steep climbs.

As the train travels most of the time in tunnels, there are several breakpoints on the line with windows. From there you can admire famous places.
Our first stop, and also the last outside of the tunnel, was Eigergletscher.

From the once mighty glacier is not much left.

The next stop was Eigerwand.

The view from the middle of the Eiger North Wall was breathtaking.

The last stop is called Eismeer. Here you can see the glacier crashes between Eiger and Mönch.

Then we reached the highest station in Europe. 3454 meters above sea level. It was too dark to make pictures. We took the elevator to the Sphinx. 117 meters in 26 seconds. The Sphinx is a research station and an observatory. In 1996, the observation deck was opened. On clear days one has a fantastic view.

This mountain is called  Mönch and is 4107 meters (13475ft.) high.

This is the Sphinx.

It was very stormy. Through this wind changed fog, clouds and a clear view in seconds - unbelievable. Then we took a walk on the Aletsch Glacier.

This glacier is the largest of the Alps in terms of area and almost 23 kilometers long. The ice flows at a speed of 180 meters per year towards the Rhone. On Konkordiaplatz the ice thickness is about 900 meters. We were not allowed to leave the path of the glacier under any circumstances. Right and left there are deep crevasses - life threatening. But the outlook was fantastic. This is the Jungfraujoch.

If you look closely, you see at the top  the Sphinx - quite small they stuck to the rock.
This is a big glacier demolition.

Then we marveled at various exhibitions.

Then it was time for the return journey. Everyone was tired and fell asleep on the train - we also. In Kleine Scheidegg we changed train,

took one last look at the Eiger and Jungfraujochbahn and went on to Wengen.

This place is famous because of the Lauberhorn downhill skiing. We were looking for the famous ski run - but without snow?

We have not found. The rest of the way we slept in Jasper's bag.

We were all very tired - but what an adventure.
yours, Lola
