I am ready to start my Journey.

Hey everyone,

I finally arrived in the small German town Detmold in the state of North Rhine Westphalia!
The weather is great and will (most likely) stay that way this week.  B)
I hope, I'll be able to take some nice photos soon, until then - have a great day!  ;)
.Vicky.

I started to take photos outside in the garden, because the weather was really great. I couldn't think of something better than sun bathing in a bed of flowers or in a canopied beach chair. :)

This morning it was raining again, but I already found a nice hat for possible colder days.  :D
In the afternoon the weather became a bit better and my host mum showed me the town centre from above and the sheep up there.

Today my host mum had to go to the bank and took me with her into the town centre. Detmold has a lot of beautiful and old houses. You can see two of them on the photos (the one with the ivy on the wall is my favourite!). I hope to be able to take a picture of one of the typical half-timbered houses as well. In most German cities these were destroyed in the Second World War, but Detmold still has a lot of them! B)

Today was an official holiday (1. Mai) and the weather was awesome!
We went into the town centre again, so that I could see all the beautiful und famous places in Detmold.
I saw the castle and the park around it. It was crowded there, because of the great weather. There is a small lake around the castle, too!
I got to see some more old buildings, like the post office, the Protestant 'Christuskirche' (church of Christ), a half-timbered house, which belongs to the 'Landesmuseum' (museum of the state), and another one, that is a hotel.
I liked especially the old 'Landestheater' (theatre of the state), which looks fantastic from the outside. Unfortunately I wasn't able to look inside, because it was closed at this time.

Hi Mom!!

I arrived safely in Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States of America! I was welcomed by NoMi and his mom. http://i838.photobucket.com/albums/zz301/Chloelynn09/P4300049.jpg

http://i838.photobucket.com/albums/zz301/Chloelynn09/P4300053.jpg

I wanted to be sure that you knew where I was living! It's a nice house....4 other people live here besides Chloe09! There are also three dogs.....they were big and scary. Chloe09 didn't let them near me because I was a little scared!

http://i838.photobucket.com/albums/zz301/Chloelynn09/P4300054.jpg

I was lucky enough to meet NoMi before his journey off to Portsmith, England! My first trip was to the Post office to see NoMi off! Even though I only spent a little bit with him, he was interesting and had lots of cool stories to tell me!

http://i838.photobucket.com/albums/zz301/Chloelynn09/P4300056.jpg

After giving NoMi a happy goodbye.....we went and visited an outlet store filled with discount bread! She let me try a few different kinds that were there. They were surprisingly good!! You should have seen all the bread, mom!! It was awesome!!!

Look at all the bread we bought too!! She let me pick out some!!

http://i838.photobucket.com/albums/zz301/Chloelynn09/P4300060.jpg

That's all we did today. I'm having fun so far! Don't worry about me, Mom! I'm having fun and being VERY good taken care of!!

Miss you! Love you!!

Hey Mom!

We also went and saw Amtrak, which is a cool train they have. Chloe09 was telling me that we could take that train across the country visiting a variety of cities and states. It just cost too much money for us to do it now. :( I had fun looking at them anyways!

Whew it has been such an adventure!!!! We stopped at this cool restaurant called Snuffy's Malt Shop! I was there with my other TV friends.
http://i838.photobucket.com/albums/zz301/Chloelynn09/snuffys.jpg

My TV friend, Lilla, and I were trying to figure out what to order! There were so many choices!

Hey Mom!!

We got to go to a Dog Show! It was so cool! We got to see various dogs being judged and some of them had weird hair cuts! It was through the American Kennel Club, which is a registry of purebred dog pedigrees in the United States. They are judged on the authentication of the true dog breeds and how they are suppose to look like.

We also had gone to Special Olympics which is an organization devoted to providing sports competition opportunities for athletes with intellectual Disabilities. My host mom wasn't able to take many pictures with me in them but put me in the pictures. It was so much fun!! I helped the athletes pick out songs to sing karaoke with since my host mom was volunteering.

Oh Boy was that a fun trip we took!! We took a trip to Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota.  The Mall of America (MOA) is the largest mall in the United States with the most visitors. One in ten shoppers is a tourist! There’s no sales tax on clothing in Minnesota. The Mall of America is one of the biggest most interesting places to be! There were 4 full floors of shops and restaurants!
http://i838.photobucket.com/albums/zz301/Chloelynn09/P6090296.jpg
This is the cool ramp we parked in. It was weird that the level we were on was named after a state in the United States of America.
http://i838.photobucket.com/albums/zz301/Chloelynn09/P6080257.jpg
Here I am with all of my TV friends! Lilla, Diddl-Maus, Buxi and then me! Yay!!
http://i838.photobucket.com/albums/zz301/Chloelynn09/P6080260.jpg
There were rides inside the mall….I couldn’t believe it! There were also some cool stores. American Girl store was pretty girly and little girls were playing with dolls of all different sizes!

There was this cool Disney store. Lots of clothes, costumes, and memorabilia from all of the Disney Movies! We got to sit and watch part of Toy Story 3! There were kids and parents there too!

Hey Mom!!

My host mom, Chloe, showed us a sauna (sow-na). A sauna is a room with a hot stove or coals that are heated by water to create a nice hot steamy room. It is a Finnish tradition to have saunas. It was very interesting and quite warm!

Before we went to see these big beautiful buildings, we got to make cupcakes!!! Host mom is Gluten Free - can't have wheat or the complex of proteins that forms when wheat flour is mixed with a liquid and physically manipulated, such as in the kneading of bread.

We all had something to do. It was up to us to make these cupcakes delicious! I was in charge of the oven. Chloe took the pan out and put it in but I got to push the buttons to the temperature and use the timer! It was a very scary job because if I didn't get the timer right, the cupcakes could be ruined. :( that would be so sad!
http://i838.photobucket.com/albums/zz301/Chloelynn09/P6160345.jpg

Look Mom!!! I helped make these delicious cupcakes!! We then had some ice cream and enjoyed our cupcakes. We were all so proud!!!
http://i838.photobucket.com/albums/zz301/Chloelynn09/P6160346.jpg

What a wonderful snack before going to see big buildings! Now we're full and ready to go!

All of these downtown Minneapolis buildings are big and beautiful! Some of these buildings have a cool history!
http://i838.photobucket.com/albums/zz301/Chloelynn09/P6170259.jpg
http://i838.photobucket.com/albums/zz301/Chloelynn09/P6170260.jpg
http://i838.photobucket.com/albums/zz301/Chloelynn09/P6170283.jpg
http://i838.photobucket.com/albums/zz301/Chloelynn09/P6170279.jpg

This is the Minneapolis City Hall. It occupies an entire city block and has about 680,000 gross square feet. The building is an architectural treasure listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was designed by Long and Keys Architects. The building also features a 15-bell chime and is the only American made set that can play the "Star Spangled Banner" in the original key. Every hour, quarter, and half-hour you will hear the bells of the tower. The bells were manufactured in New York and weigh from 300 to 7,300 pounds each -- over 14 tons total.
http://i838.photobucket.com/albums/zz301/Chloelynn09/P6170295.jpg

This is the Public Safety building. It's a jail!! Here's some information Chloe09 told us about it! The Hennepin County Sheriff's Office operates the largest pre-trial adult detention facility (commonly called the jail) in the State of Minnesota. Jail facilities are located in two different buildings in downtown Minneapolis, but are treated as one facility:
    The Public Safety Facility (PSF) has 330 beds for arrestees.
    The City Hall (ADC) has 509 beds for arrestees.
On average each year, there are approximately 40,000 bookings at the jail. The jail is currently staffed for a capacity of 703 beds, and the average population in 2009 was 694. The jail has consistently earned the distinction of being accredited by the American Correctional Association for maintaining the highest standards of inmate custody and care.
http://i838.photobucket.com/albums/zz301/Chloelynn09/P6170323.jpg

This building is the Hennepin County Court House. Little bit of information about it! It was pretty cool. The Hennepin County Courthouse, located in the Hennepin County Government Center, was completed in 1974. It was designed by John Carl Warnecke and Associates of San Francisco, with Peterson, Clark and Associates of Minneapolis. The masonry is the same carnelian red granite from Ortonville, MN, that was used in building the Minneapolis City Hall, where the courthouse used to be located. The diagonal braces of the modern building are steel sprayed with a fireproofing material to which a cream-colored porcelain-type material was fused. The building's total cost was about $50 million, with $1.6 million more spent after completion on making necessary window changes, fitting an additional floor for courtrooms, and installing glass walls on atrium floors and walkways.
http://i838.photobucket.com/albums/zz301/Chloelynn09/P6170305.jpg

This is the United States District Courthouse. The history of the judicial system in Minnesota begins in 1849 when the first territorial court term was held in Stillwater, Minnesota. The U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota was not established until nine years later when Minnesota became a State in 1858.
http://i838.photobucket.com/albums/zz301/Chloelynn09/P6170333.jpg

This train was cool. She called it the light rail. We couldn't go on there....we didn't have time. :( maybe next time!

Can you guess where we are? A normal park? WRONG!

http://i1152.photobucket.com/albums/p481/Jillyfish33/November%202012/November2012050.jpg

We are here at Minnehaha Park in Minneapolis, MN. We are here to see the Minnehaha Falls, walk the trails, and even fish a little bit. :D

We are going down there------->

Mr. Munchy and I are great explorers; we are up to the challenge.  B)

There's not a lot of people out here today. It is a bit chilly. Good thing we packed that extra sweater.

No one is here besides us---- must be a secret spot. ;)

Alright! Let's get out that fishing gear and get to work.

I think I prefer to stay on shore.
