hi, everybody!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
today mom ipue told us she activated our new travellog and we are very curious what will be written here!!!!?!?!  :rolleyes:
step by step mom ipue promised to transfer our former postings to this nice travellog.. hopefully one day you can read everything happened in our short life!!! *smile*

today ipue had a meetup with her former collegues from the time when she was working for 10 years in a large motor company - now all her friends are retraited!! and we were allowed to come with her - juhuuuuuuuuuu!!!!  :D

it's a large coffee shop, better to say a restaurant, belongs to one of the large hotels in tab.. and it got a famous place for students, means everybody is relaxed there!!! and so we had been, too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;-))))))))


we had a kind of *beef stroganoff*!!


Posted Mar 2, 2013, 7:06 pm
hi leutz!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
in the morning the weather was grey - very rarely here in IR - and it seemed to get a boring day.. but later ipue's son2 arrived and after a nice breakfast we went downtown!!! everybody went to do his job, and ipue brought us to here & where and we had a look at *ancient tabriz*!!!!

on our way we saw an *open air cobbler*:


Posted Mar 2, 2013, 7:30 pm
our first place to see was the famous BLUE MOSQUE, registered at the tentative list of UNESCO. hopefully one day it will be a world heritage site!

this view is taken from entrance of *bustane khaghani*, khaghani's garden. khaghani was an ancient poet, burried in tabriz! - See more at:

the blue mosque was built about 550 years ago and destroyed by an earthquake in 1779. only the entrance (at its back side) remained! in 1973 they started to rebuilt it and when ipue in 1976 moved to tabriz they were just closing the dome!!! about 30 years they were painting out the mosque matching to the new rules of unesco, that there have to notice a difference between original parts and restored parts! it's perhaps the most famous brick mosque of IR.

TODAY - we got freed from our hard days in darkness and far from any fun of life - means from ipuenktchen's TREASURES downstairs in the cellar among tons of playmos - ancient toys of 2 adult sons - waiting for next intended use...

the same day ipuenktchen created her own blog:

then she made a lottery with a poll in german forum of the postcrossing-site and it was dear EGNI from switzerland who got the *godaunt* of the sweeties as her *POSSY & CROSSY* got the highest votes!!

there was also haensel & gretel and willi & lili and carl & carla....... but POSSY & CROSSY were the winners!!!!!!

all this happened while ipue still hosted another traveltoys from DE  - *PAUL THE BACKPACKER* - pls have a look at his blog: http://hans-the-backpacker.blogspot.com/ - by hosting him ipuenktchen got the idea to create her own travelling toys to be always with her!!!!!!!!!!

what a day!!!!!!!!!!!!! and here we are!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Posted Mar 3, 2013, 1:48 am
abruptly snow instead of spring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!??!?!

oh shocking - two days before the beginning of spring - *S*N*O*W*... poor flowers!!!



Posted Mar 3, 2013, 2:14 am
this is the moment of a temporary separation -
CROSSY will go together with a friend of ipue MARYNKZ to BAKU, rep. azerbaijan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
and me, POSSY, will go together with IPUENKTCHEN on their holday trip to north of IR to the caspian sea side!

and last but not least PAUL THE BACKPACKER is gone together with
MISSLONDON on their holiday trip to south-east of IR!! so we'll have a lot of news during this holiday season in IRAN, and hopefully after being back one day we can meet each other all together!!!?!?!? it will  be so great!!

so each of us will enter to another NOROUZ!!!!! ;-)


POSSY is entering the NEW YEAR at ipuenktchen's:

20th march 2010 = 29th esfand 1388
9 o'clock PM, 02 min, 13 sec
- it's *N*E*W***Y*E*A*R*!!!!!!

ســــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــال نـــــــــــو مبارك

here you can see ipue's *haft-sin*!!!!
pls have a look and learn about:

the new year is only 3 hours old, POSSY was going by bus together with ipue to tehran! here you can see the packed lunch we got in the bus!

and as usual I thank KOBRA a lot for the beautiful collage she had done for ipue!!


Posted Mar 3, 2013, 2:25 am
I slept in ipue's photo-bag and when I got awake we entered tehran, as ipue told me, a very abandoned tehran, because it's holiday time!!!! her elder son was coming to the terminal to pick us up, and we had a great breakfast at his flat!

there was also a nice haft-sin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
but it was sad to see anita's room without anita, as she left tehran some days before for the caspian seaside - ok, we'll see each other there!!!!!


then we left tehran!! in the early afternoon we arrived in JUIBAR, where the parents of ipue's daughter-in-law are living. and we had another nice haft-sin, too - and finally with gold-fishes!!!!!!!!!!

btw - the distance from tabriz to tehran is 6oo km
and the distance from tehran to juibar is about 3oo km.


Posted Mar 3, 2013, 2:54 am
a walk at the sea-side at babolsar........... what a crowd is promenading here!!?!


when we went to the beach I was sooo surprised the sand wasn't white like everywhere I saw before but a kind of BLACK!!!!!?! :o


and when we found some driftwood we got a bit sad remembering the good old friend essy... RIP..
it was his specialty making so great sculptures from driftwood!!

Posted Mar 3, 2013, 10:44 am
at the caspian sea area, province mazanderan, I met also ipuenktchen's cute granddaughter!! *smile* we had a great time!! playing and chatting together!



her grandmom *mamani* has a great garden around the house!!!! and as the climate is subtropical they have no real winter and the spring comes much more earlier than in tabriz, our home town, and so we saw lots of beautiful flowers!



Posted Mar 3, 2013, 10:54 am
we had to leave again for tehran & tabriz.... :-(((((((((((((((((((((
again from juibar via babol - on the way buying some *couloutsheh* as a souvenir from the seaside - across the mountains beside mt demavand, with 5.679 m the most highest mountain in IR!!


passing milad tower in tehran and continue our way back home -
being home at time to prepare *sizdah be dar*!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ipue told me it's a great day everybody is going out!!

pls have a look here!!

aaaaaaaaaaaaand for sure I'm *homesick* and cannot wait to see CROSSY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and we can tell each other about our adventures!!! *smile*

Posted Mar 3, 2013, 1:58 pm
yesterday ancient tabriz, today modern tabriz - ipue brought us to one of the most important cross roads of tabriz, where is a gorgeous project being real... they knocked down houses and houses all around to built a phanomenal huge cross road with main metrostation all in one!!

even the house of the parents of ipue's hubby had been knocked down some years ago for this reason!!!!! and btw the beautiful antique doorknocker is from the door of their neighbours!! some 30 years ago when ipue moved to tabriz most of the houses had such great doorknockers!! at ipue's door I noticed also an old one, not this one, but another type..  ;)

we had a look at a large mosaic in the souterrain of the area around the abrisham tower, gotten a new sightseing point in tabriz  - and what a nice clouds at the sky in this afternoon!!!!?!

Posted Mar 6, 2013, 10:17 am

Posted Mar 27, 2013, 3:39 pm
today again we got up in the very early morning to have another nice breakfast with ipue's son1 and then he brought us to the bus leaving for urumieh/ IR. it was such an impressing landscape on the road to the border - we remembered karl may *durchs wilde kurdistan*!!!! and on the border it began to rain and later in urumieh it began to snow......... and when we arrived in tabriz terminal - icy streets with lot of snow and no taxis.... but finally after a very interesting 5-days-trip into a male world we arrived safely at home!!!!!! 

a huge thank you to son1!!!!  :D

SIZDAH be dar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the very much beloved holiday, end of norouz-holidays - in ipue's family it's common to go to their garden together with many of their friends and sometimes also siblings, when everybody all over IR is going out - to bring out their sabze from haftsin, the table of norouz, and to make picnic in a nice spring atmospher!!! (me, POSSY, and ipue were going by taxi, because we were going later than the others!)

aaaaaaaaaaand it was the great moment, our temporarly separation was FINISHED!!! POSSY & CROSSY, each of them from another direction back from their holidays meeting each other at *sizdah be dar* in mr. ipue's garden!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it was sooo romantic, guys!!!!!!

and up from tomorrow holidays are finished for everybody - back at work, school, universities!!!  :D


Posted Apr 3, 2013, 7:52 pm
Hurray!!! We made it to Frankfurt in Germany! It's fantastic!!!

Mom, we just wanted to inform you, that we arrived savely. We are busy at the moment: Get to know our host mom Kate, watch football on TV (Borussia Dortmund is playing), unpack our presents (yes, Kate has presents for us, woohooooo....) So please be patient, we will tell you more later or tomorrow. (And we will take pictures!)

Posted Apr 3, 2013, 11:23 pm
Hui, Mom, thank you so much for sending us to Europe! We loved our trip so far. And as we are in Frankfurt now we can say: We still love it!

At first we were a bit unsecure. We were in the envelope travelling with the postal system and nobody talked to us. Actually we had no idea where we were and what happened. This morning we found our way in Kates postbox (but we didn't know this fact). The big city Frankfurt! But we always heard geese. In Frankfurt! But it's right. Here are geese. We were in the right place. Maybe we can take photos with the geese while we stay here. Nevertheless, we waited and waited and waited for something to happen. Hell, it seems as host mom works a lot! But the magic moment came and we heard someone say "Hey Possy and Crossy, welcome!" And soon host mom Kate opened the envelope. Hurray!

It seems as if Kate is a nice person. Maybe a little bit crazy. But we are sure, we will have a great time here.

Kate wants to thank you for the postcards! She will give some away to our next host mom Kroete. But host mom also got some postcards from Gforp! (She will keep them all, because Kroete lives in Northern Germany and should visit Denmark, if she wants postcards... hihihihi...)

We got welcome presents!!!!! We are still excited! We got a backpack, field glasses, a handbag and a suitcase! We can travel the world!!!!

And we watched football on TV and had a little drink. Well, Borussia Dortmund could have done better, but we get a feeling here: The important club is 1. FC Kaiserslautern.... We will find out more.... (But for sure, the FC Kaiserslautern pillow ist our favourite place at Kate's home....)

By the way: We are nice guests, we helped Kate hanging up the laundry. You can be proud of us! But we have to admit: We are making a little bit fun of Kate. (But she laughs too.) She is breaking in new shoes and she looks so ridiculous wearing leisure clothes with red high heels...  B)

Tomorrow we have a day off, because we are very tired due to the journey. Kate says we need a lot of power on Friday, because we are going to a special place. But it is a surprise, so we have no idea.  Probably we will tell you on Saturday or Sunday. We miss you Mom!!!!!


Posted Apr 7, 2013, 8:30 pm
Mom, believe it or not: We visited the best place in the world: Fritz-Walter-Stadium in Kaiserslautern!!! What a fantastic day!

We love you K-Town, we do,
we love you K-Town, we do,
we love you K-Town, we do,
HEY, K-Town, we love you!

On Friday Kate went to work as usual. But she told us to be ready for a trip later. We were so anxious. But soon Kate came home and her friend Patrick picked us up. And Philip and Klaus joined us too. Four people wearing 1. FC Kaiserslautern stuff... But Kate still told us "Wait and see".

Here you can see us passing Frankfurt Airport.


And we had a beer. Yummie! (A big mistake, as you will see...)


So we had a great time, cruising and drinking a beer... But the we ended up in a big big traffic jam! It was true, we were on our way to Kaiserslautern. But as the stadium was sold out, nearly 50.000 people had the same destination...


Here you can see us really nearby Kaiserslautern. But the problem was: It took such a long time... And... it's a little embarrassing.... We all needed a toilet. Not a big problem for all the men in the traffic jam.... They could all just go out of the cars and many many did... But poor Kate (and probably many other girls) really had a problem.... As soon as we finally left the highway we stopped at the first restaurant (a beautiful American Diner) and we couldn't stop laughing as Kate ran in like a maniac. Hihihihi....

But we had to hurry, going on to the city. We were actually lucky, it didn't take to long to find a parking space. But you can imagine: We still had to climb on Betzenberg and we were late, so we had no time to take good picures.



Actually Betzenberg (Betzen-Mountain) is the place, where the Fritz-Walter-Stadium is. So the stadium is often called Betzenberg too or just short Betze. To go "uff de Betze" means to go to the Stadium. It's the highest football mountain in Germany. It's really rampant!

Kate had to pick up tickets for the matches in Aue and Cottbus and then we finally entered the stadium and were on our place one minute before kick off. Ha, we made it just in time!!!

Oh Mom, what a fantastic place! We love it!!!! We love the people! We love 1. FC Kaiserslautern! It's the best club in the world!!!!!!

And you have to know: It was a very important match. We played versus 1. FC Köln. Köln overtook Kaiserslautern in the league ranking the week before. But we need to be on the third place at the end to reach the play offs! A little chance to find our way back in Bundesliga 1 (league 1) next season. Unfortunately place 1 and 2 are quite too far away...  :(  (And place 1 and 2 means league one for sure, no play offs...)

Things started, it was so exciting! So fantastic! And Kaiserslautern really made a great game! Here you can see us at the beginning, still 0:0.


It didn't take to long and: GOAL!!!!!!!!!!! Goal for Kaiserslautern! Woohoooo! And there were two other explosions! Yes, there is nothing you can do, it's like the people explode after a goal and there is nothing one can do against it. We exploded too. Unbelievable, it's pure happiness!

When Kaiserslautern wins, the fans have a funny ritual: They wave with tissues and sing a special Goodbye song. So funny!


And here you can see the team celebrating with us:


So fantastic!

After the match we had something to eat: "Currywurst" and fries. The sausage is from famous Härting. (It's horse. Yummie!)


Going home to Frankfurt was a funny trip. Kate then took us to Sachsenhausen, where we met a good friend. (Although this guy really has a bad taste in football. He is a fan of Eintracht Frankfurt...) But no pictures, sorry mom... We forgot to take some...

But as there still is time, before we have to leave Frankfurt and visit Sabine, we will visit Kaiserslautern again in two weeks!

Isn't it exciting here? We miss you Mom!!! Love you!

Posted Apr 20, 2013, 12:08 am
Hey Mom! Sorry for not updating so long! But as you know Kate had an awful cold. She always went to work, but in the evening there was nothing we could do. When she came home she just lay on the couch. And the whole weekend nothing else was possible. But we entertained  her and took care. Although there was no action, everything is fine, because Kate had two excellent nurses...

On Monday our beloved 1. FC Kaiserslautern had a match. They played in Aue, which is quite far away. Due to a lot of work (and the cold) we could not go there. But we watched TV. Here you can see us before the game, when Kate smoke a cigarette (uhhh, bad habit!!!!!) on the balcony. (It's neither Kate's nor our beer you can see. We had a visitor. Kate was a little bit sad still being sick.)


So, here it all started... We were so excited and cheered!!!


Here you can see us after the match. Deeply sad!


Unbelievable. 1:1 after leading and playing 11 versus 9! What a shame!!! What a disgrace!!!! We don't want to talk about it.

Tuesday we helped Kate to do a secret package for the forum. As it is a secret, we can only show the finished package.


Surprise surprise! It was Kate's Birthday on Wednesday. She got a package from her Mom and Dad. A cleaner for the balcony????


No! It was a beautiful shopper! Have a look:


There was no big party. Kate went out for a dinner for two. We helped here to pick a dress, because she couldn't make her mind.


We picked the black one. We will celebrate a little bit tomorrow (hopefully). Cause we will see many of Kate's friends tomorrow. A little celebration with her family in the Eifel will be next weekend. We can't go there, because we go to Sabine. But maybe we will visit Kate again and we really hope for the opportunity, to visit the beautiful Eifel. Especially as Kate says, it's the most beautiful place in Germany.

Before Kate left for dinner, we had a drink:


Mom, you know what?!?!?!? We are going to Kaiserslautern again tomorrow! This time we go by train! We can't wait for tomorrow!!! Betzenberg, here we come!

See you Mom! We miss you! We love you!

Posted Apr 21, 2013, 1:30 am
boah.... sour-cherries as much as you may imagine!!! we helped to pick them up at ipue's friend's and later at home we helped ipue to make marmelade!!!!!

jippieeeeeeeeeeeeeeh - today is the b-day of our dear mom ipue.. and they decided to have *a day in europe* on this special day!!!!! we were so thrilled when she wake us up in the very early morning at 4 AM and let us current, and after a short breakfast we went by taxi to the *middle east largest square* to get a taxi for jolfa, the border town!!!! in jolfa we changed some money and went on the other side of the border!! there had been nobody at the border at this early time and also about the newly high value of forein currency...!! and it was great to hear when they ordered a taxi to Ordubad to see another place, because normally ppl are going only to Nakhtshevan city!!

so we went through an impressing landscape, had a 2nd breakfast in the car, arrived at ordubad after an hour!! we made a tour around the small city, some buildings from bygone times by an architecture like in IR.. and the most interesting place was like a market square in ancient cities, with a reeeeally very large tree and many benches around and soooo many men chatting and relaxing there!!!  :o


so we left ordubad, happy this time we had seen another part of the little autonomous republic and went back to reach nakhtshevan city!!!

Posted Apr 21, 2013, 2:08 am
still quite early at 10.30 AM we reached nakhtshevan city!!! it was a great weather and for ipue worth to be here without any *extra clothes*... as we are in EUROPE!!!! *smiiiiiiiiiiiiile* first we went for some sightseeing and it was really interesting, all the buildings from the olden times are in same architecture style like in IR.. mostly from seljuq era.. later as the weather got hot more and more we found a place beside a water to take some icecream and even ipue changed her clothes; as we didn't know the weather from before, she brought different clothes to be able to choose..... from this place even we could see the aras dam quite far!!


when we are in nakhtshevan we are never going into restaurants as the super markets have so many tasty things for an european taste and we cannot find in IR.. so when we had been hungry we bought some great smokey cheese and other things, european bread and so on - yummyyyy!!! (even they have great marmelades from russia from european fruits like blueberry and others!! sometimes ipue brought this as a souvenir for her friends!!) and so we went to look for a bench under a tree and were going to relax a bit.....

in the late afternoon ipue decided to get a taxi to the border for going back home! what a great day out we had!!!!!!!!!! we were happy but tired!!!  :D

Hey Mom, it's time for some news!

Saturday was the important day: Kaiserslautern played! We played at home versus Paderborn. This time we went by train to Kaiserslautern. Uhh, we had to get up really early! At Frankfurt main station we bought breakfast: A big coffee and a sandwich:


And as we travelled alone the first hour, we spent some time writing postcards in the train:


But when we changed the train in Bad Münster am Stein we met the other crazy Kaiserslautern-Fans. There was a lot of fun, singing and joking. And we had a really early beer... (real German "Frühschoppen")


When we arrived in Kaiserslautern we went to a fantastic pub called 12. Mann (that means the 12. man; 11 players on the field, number 12 are the fans...). It was a day full of beer, here we enjoyed the next one:


The pub is decorated with tons of Kaiserslautern stuff. And there is a sign to the Fritz-Walter-Stadium:


A really great place!!!! And then we climbed up to the stadium. Oh Mom, it's really exhausting! To tell you the truth: Just for climbing up Betzenberg every time Kaiserslautern should play first league! But hey, that's part of our live as Kaiserslautern fans.

We took photos in front of the stadium, but sorry mom, they are not usable! It seems as if Kates camera does not work....

But at least we have some from inside.


At this point we already celebrated two goals for Kaiserslautern!!!! We told Kate before, but she couldn't believe: When we go to the stadium, we win!!!! The truth is: We are Possy and Crossy! We are the lucky charms of our beloved club 1. FC Kaiserslautern!

Believe it or not: We had another beer then:


At the end we won 3:0. Fantastic! To be honest, although we are the lucky charms we were unsecure! What a relief! It was a really important victory!!!


The trip home was such a lot of fun! A little bit chaotic, but Kate says, most time it's crazy... Crazy and weird is normal! In Frankfurt we met Eintracht Frankfurt fans. But soon we went home and being really tired, we went to bed immediately. (Believe it or not: Kate and one of her Eintracht fans celebrated a little. Eintracht Frankfurt won versus Schalke the same day. Kate is really a broad-minded person! It's weird to celebrate with people who love a disgusting club like Eintracht!)

And then we had to say goodbye! It's a little bit sad, because we had such a bad luck. Kate had this bad cold and besides to much work. Actually there was a huge lack of time. But it seems as we will go to Frankfurt again. We hope so!

But now we go to Sabine. Kate says, we have to go now, because we will go on a very special trip with Sabine! We are so curious and excited!!!!! But Kate told us, Sabine is the nicest person in the world, we will love our time there anyway. And we know Kate is honest. So we really look forward!!!!

Here we leave:


So now we are on our way to the north of Germany! Looking forward to Sabine and new adventures! We can't wait to arrive!

Bye Kate! See you soon hopefully!!!!

Bye Mom! We miss you! We love you!

Dear Mom - Dear Kate :)

good news! We arrived at Lübeck today :)

We think our new host-mom is a more than a little bit crazy - two bicycles are living in the hall! Very strange ;)

But some very nice new friends expected us in the living room. And we started immediately the party. Now we are sitting on the sofa, eating marzipan and drinking coffee .... we think, it will be a long long night....


On the picture you see us with our new friends 10C, Festmaschenbär, George and Georgina. The turtles and the bear are from the beautiful city Hamburg. Her mom is mondkind. But now they live in Lübeck and especially Georgina has the travel bug. She asks us a lot about our voyages...

Dear Kate - we miss you so. Hopefully see you soon :) and mom - we love you :)

Posted Apr 28, 2013, 6:09 pm
Dear Mom <3

today was a very busy and exciting day!
Turtles showed us travel guides from Amsterdam and the North Sea Cycle Route! And she had a bike for us. So we can cycle ourselves, if we want.


Mom, did you know that? We will travel to Amsterdam tomorrow! And Tuesday is Troonswisseling in the Netherlands. And WE will be there...

but first we helped Turtles to pack and of course we oiled the bicycle chain:


This will be our place when Turtles cycle - it is very comfortable and we have a good sight:


In the afternoon we relaxed in the garden and Turtles showed us a very cute gift, which she got from Nicole:



Do you see the little turtle, climbing up the hill? This are energy lollipops - so nice!

We are very curious, what the next days happens and we tell you everything, mom.

P & C

Posted Apr 30, 2013, 7:32 am
Dear Mom :)

only a short message, because we must hurry to meet the Queen ;)

We arrived with 2 hours delay (a train has failed in Hamburg) at Amsterdam Centraal:


Then Turtles cycled with us to our hotel. We never have seen such a lot of bicycles! And they all drive very fast! omg!

Turtles only through the baggage in our room, and muttered: "We need something orange! We need something orange!" And we started again...

We entered the first Head Shop and bought orange bunny ears  :o
a orange flower necklace and caught a orange crown for free!

Then we took a drink in the street and listened to a good band for an hour:


(you can't see us, mom, because we are backstage :D )

and now ... we ... have ... to ... go.

We are not sure, if Turtles really wear the bunny ears, but we will tell you *smile*

Dear mom <3


what a great day! First we went to the Dam. It is the place in front of the royal palace. A lot of people was already there...and now we understood, why we needed some orange :)

We had to wait some time, but we had a good place to look around:


On a big screen we could see, what inside the palace happened. A lot of people signed a document - but it wasn't a postcard?!

We were bewildered, mom!

Then, after a while, Princess Beatrix, King Willem Alexander and Queen Maxima came on to the balcony...


And all the people have jubilated. It was a great feeling. We got goose bumps.

We left the Dam and became friends with some orange people:



Turtles asked us, if we would like to do a canal cruise - of course we would! And we did:


We met a lot of other boats - most of them with music and happy people on it. But it was so cold! So we went back to the hotel and made a power napping...

And at the evening we went to the harbour...but more we write tomorrow....

Posted May 2, 2013, 7:08 pm
Dear mom <3

we are fine! Only turtles looks a little bit damaged ;)

Now we must tell you something new :) At Wednesday we left Amsterdam, but first we had a last look at the canals:


Turtles wasn't happy. She searched for royal postcards in whole Amsterdam and found 3!!!

Nevertheless we started to see the Keukenhof!


We walked through a forrest of tulips!


Had a rest under some nice hyacinths.


And saw free and wild tulips ;)

At the end of the day we reached the North Sea - the wind was very strong, as you can see:


Bye mom,

we love you,

P & C


Posted May 5, 2013, 6:53 pm
Dear mom <3

today Turtles found the special stamps - finally. That makes she very happy...but not for long. 

There was no sunshine today - but a strong headwind. So we learned some very interesting new words - better we don't repeat them.

This is the landscape we passed:


After some kilometers we could argue Turtles for doing some downhill biking in the dunes:





Crossy had a little crash, but don't worry mom - he is alright.

But then we went in our transport-box and let Turtles cycling. She was fighting tough again the wind and we reached at least Wijk aan Zee. Turtles was not happy with the daily output. Only 45 km she grumbled...

We had dinner in an italien restaurant and ate a wonderful Spaghetti Bolognese. Turtles said, that Pasta is the best for cyclists - and we agree.

Good night mom - we miss you <3

P & C

Posted May 8, 2013, 6:30 am
Dear mom <3

This morning we looked out of the window and saw: No wind! but sunshine!

Turtles said, that we have to do a lot of kilometers today, so we took our bicycle Katta at 9 p.m. and pedaled off
The first kilometers we were hidden in our box - you can't believe, how many big and wild animals live in this country - and Turtles said: How cute.  *hrmpf*
But then we reached a nice viewpoint without cows, horses and big birds and had a break: Some little birds sing, a soft wind blowed and we saw the Northsea under a blue sky....


After this break we cycled between dunes and small towns to the big Enclosure Dam. A 30 km long dam in between Den Oever and Zurich. Here we started on the dam:


We stopped at the first bed behind the dam for the night and Turtles said, that she could not have done that without us. :)
We cycled 119 km this day, mom and our butts....you don't wanna know.


And now we need a shower and our bed :)

Good night, mom, love you <3

P & C

Posted May 8, 2013, 7:01 am
Dear mom,

it was a wonderful sunny morning. And we had tailwind!

After a quick breakfast we cycled to the next beautiful town: Harlingen. Turtles bought postcards, stamps, something to drink and a frisian flag.
So we had time to look at the harbour:


Now we saw less dunes and more grasslands. And we met a lot of sheeps - we think, more than a million. Anyway we helped Turtles looking for the right way. Somtimes it wasn't easy to find, but we did it!


And we found this beautiful windmill at the evening, while we looked for a sleeping-place.


This evening we sleep in an old townhall.

Bye mom, love,

P & C


Posted May 9, 2013, 7:37 pm
Hello mom <3

we think, it's time to tell you, what we have to do every morning:

Turtles is a early bird *grmmpf* and every morning she wrote a lot of postcards. Certainly we helped her:


This was a lot of work, mom! Every morning! But we got a cup of coffee, that made it easier.

We left our nice landlady and started to the border. Turtles was not sure, if we reached it today, but she would try it. Our next stop was in Spijk. A beautiful little town. We saw the church in the city center and a windmill next to it.


We had lunch in Delfzijl and found a dike without sheeps at the Dollard. What a wonderful look:


At the horizon you can see Germany. But we decided to sleep another night in the Netherlands. So we stopped at Nieuweschans for the night.

P & C

PS: We miss you, mom. <3


Posted May 9, 2013, 9:07 pm
Dear Mom,

this was our last day with Turtles at the North Sea.

We had a look at the map and saw our travelroute. Wow! We did a great job.

We cycled from Noordwijk to Nieuweschans in the Netherlands and today to Leer in Germany. At least we did 380 km of the North Sea Cycle Route.


And we left the Netherlands now, because the sign says: End of LF 10a (=NSCR in the Netherlands).


In Germany will be other signs, Turtles told us. We followed a part the Ems River and saw a interesting bridge at Weener.


Then we arrived at Leer. And the first wonderful thing we saw was this old postbox:


What a wonderful ending of this journey.

Turtles bought our tickets at the station, and we had a last coffee, while waiting for our train to Lübeck.

And at Lübeck our friends were waiting at the sofa...we have a lot to report :)

Dear mom, have a good night, love,

P & C

Posted May 13, 2013, 7:42 am
Dear Mom <3

we are so sorry, that we couldn't be with you at germans Mother's Day. :(
But we send a lot of love and kisses :)

And now we have to tell you, what we were doing at the last weekend. At Friday Turtles came early in the morning and took us in her backpack. We couldn't see anything, but she told us, that our destination would be a surprise....

We drove a long time by car and we heard, that we arrived in a big city - and then, you can't believe it, mom, we saw a well known, lovely face: it was Kate <3 .

YEAH! We were in Frankfurt and met Kate! What a surprise! How wonderful!!!

And Kate showed us a little part of Frankfurt:


A wonderful place. Like heaven. So many postcards. Kate and Turtles looked a long time for new cards - Mr. Turtles went to drink a coffee, but we looked for new postcards too.

Then we strolled to the town square:


This is the famous balcony of the "Römer", Frankfurt's townhall:


The buildings look old, but they aren't. After the destruction during World War II, the buildings were restored in a simplified form.

These is a detail from the only building (Haus Wertheim) in the old city center, which overcame the fire:



We took the "Eiserner Steg" across the River Main and went to Sachsenhausen, which is well known for it's Applewine-bars (Ciderhouses):


It was so wonderful to meet Kate again and we promised to come back in Juli! Then she will do a bar hop with us - we hope :) and show us more of the beautiful town Frankfurt.

More from this weekend....later .

Bye, mom, we miss you,

P & C

<3 <3 <3

Posted May 16, 2013, 8:23 am
Dear mom <3

after we met wonderful Kate at Friday, we started to new adventures on Saturday.

First we visited a nice little Zoo in Neunkirchen. Turtles act as godmother for two tortoises there.

And we saw a lot of animals. We became friends with a wise old eagle owl named Odin:


He was very friendly and protected us. Then we helped Turtles feeding some other animals:


Some of them were a little bit pushy ;)

After visiting the zoo we drove to the old german city Heidelberg.

We checked in at our Hotel and then looked at the beautiful old city center. A lot of people had the same idea as you can see:



And then we had a first look at the Heidelberg Castle:


Mr. Turtles told us, that we could see it better from the Old Bridge over river Neckar, and he was right:


Many people was there, and some of them used a curious means of transportation:


Near the Old Bridge gate we found the "bridge mandrill". This is a new sculpture from 1977 with the theme self-reflection. The original monkey get lost in 1689.

But the poem is from 1638:


We had dinner in the old city center and next day we went back to Lübeck. During the trip - of course - we had a lot of fun and crossed our fingers for Kates FCK! And - of course - They won by three goals to one. Sorry for the goal against, Kate. We were distracted for a moment.


We are curious, what will happen next, and tell you everything.

Bye mom <3

Moin Moin, mom <3

they say this in north Germany the whole day...it means Hello!

We had a lazy, sunny day with Turtles. She suggested a short bicycle trip to the coast to us. We were delighted.

On the way to the coast we saw a lot of rape fields. The rape blooms now in Schleswig-Holstein:




Look! We reached Scharbeutz at the Baltic Sea. This is Turtles' favourite place in summer :)


Yeah! A wonderful place. Only a soft wind was going and we heard the billows:



We cycled a few kilometers along the coast to Niendorf


and saw these beautiful avenue on our way back to Bad Schwartau


and more rape fields ;)


At the end, we had the best italien ice ("Spaghetti Eis") ever:


Wow! What a pity, that you can't be with us, mom.
We miss you ....

P & C

Posted May 19, 2013, 5:36 pm
Dear mom <3


No day for going out - but we went to Hamburg and visited Nicole and her children for a board game afternoon. :)

It was a lot of fun and we looking forward to visit Nicole again in July! It will be a gas!

We started the afternoon with "Looping Louie". Mr. Louie is a low-flyer and we have to push him up, so that he can't hit the coins...


Sweet little Larissa was a formidable opponent, and we helped Turtles


After that we did Ludo, in german: Mensch ärgere dich nicht.




And at the end we started the The aMAZEing Labyrinth. We helped Turtles, but Nicole was to good for us... Congrats. :)



It was a funny afternoon and we enjoy it very much. If the weather will be fine tomorrow, turtles will do a last bicycle ride with us, and then it is time to say goodbye and start to Switzerland...

We miss you a lot, mom. You would love this holiday...

They told something about polar air the next days in Germany. And look at the rain clouds....


It was very good, that Turtles got a little parcel for our journey to Inge. We had a tearful goodbye from our new friends - but new adventures are waiting.


Lots of Love for you mom and thank you Turtles for the nice stay,

Hi Mom - Hi Turtles
We arrived to our new hostmom today, a little bit tired from our yourney.

Safely we look out of the package and what we saw, is okay.

We were welcomed by a scary-looking somebody. But a little later we found out, that it is an original nutcracker from Erz Mountains.

And he is very charming.

Bye for today.

Posted May 23, 2013, 6:03 pm
Hi mom
We had our first walk out with our hostmom. By bus we went to an old people's home to visit an old lady. She is 98 years old and so likable.

She has given her chocolate to us.

Oh, what she can tell about the old times, really interesting.

When it stops raining for a while we go to the terrace, having a beautiful look to the lake of Zurich and the hillside.

We feel very little at this place.

You can see the clouds reflecting on the desk. Rain will come back soon.

So we went home for a little rest.
Bye for today. We miss you mom.

Posted May 24, 2013, 8:17 pm
Dear mom
Today we were on tour the whole day.
First stop after having visited the doctor was a nice café, where we had hot chocolate and mom -

look at this sweet smileys, yummy!

Then we had to go to the station for traveling with egni and her hubby to an exhibition. It's permanent and called "Umweltarena". We had to see and to learn a lot of things.

Most we like this flower wall, made from recycled petbottles. We think, the picture would be a nice postcard.

Than we make friends with some animals.

Don't fear mom, they were not alive. Do we look a bit like "The Town Musicians of Bremen"? It was so funny!

At least we went to the vegetate roof with a nice view.

Oh mom, that were lots of impressions. Now we are tired.

Good night mom, we love you!

Posted May 25, 2013, 4:16 pm
Hi mom
Today we had to get up early in the morning. Egni promised us to meet some interesting peoples and things. We were so curious! First we went by train and by foot to a large place. After a while we saw lots of boothes and many, many peoples. Oh yes, now we realized, why we had taken our luggage with us. Is was a fleemarket!!! Egni intended to buy lots of thinks. So we want to do so too.

And than we met a swiss cousin with his friends. We were very thrilled and reporting a thousand things.

The boys couldn't pace themselves.

We said goodbye and started to the next visit. A castle!

King and Queen welcome us.

In between we were bying some postcards and books. So in the evening we will have a rest. May be, we will watch some television. "Ohnsorg-Theater". We know you love this and we'll thinking about you.
Bye mom, huggings form P+C

Posted May 27, 2013, 6:24 pm
Dear mom and all we know in the world

Today we have had the first day with sun! She is still shining, it is lo lovely. Egni was busy in the garden, so we had time to look around, and that is what we saw!

First we went on the balcony, smelling the herbage.

Than we look out of the window to the beautiful blooming clematis.

Nearby is a little artificial pond, where we have a rest on the bridge.

We had to climb high, to see the buds of the kiwifruit. There are a lot of them.

Do you find us in the blooming lantana, mom? It smells so sweet.

There are many aquilegias, but this has the nicest colour of all.

We never saw such giant rhubarb. We have had a fantastic view from its leaves.

After all we were a little bit tired and have a rest near by this cute little deer.

Bye, bye, mom. In the evening we have to keep our fingers crossed for Betzes soccer team. We remember the exciting Games and we like to see three goals from the FCK.

Posted Jun 1, 2013, 7:34 pm
Hi mom
It was so boring the last days. Rain when we awake, rain when we go to bed  :(.
Egni was very busy because of her holidays and she looks to neighbours home in addition. Today we had the chance to go with her for feed the fishes.

Controlling the feed for the fishes

It's raining and we havn't an embrella!

Visiting the big frog and than running home through the rain.

Posted Jun 8, 2013, 9:14 pm
Hoi mom
You havn't heard anything for a long time, that's why the weather is so sunny, that we worked in the garden. There was no time to take pictures, but we had a lot of fun and mom - we got some sunburn!

But today we had a travel to Grisons. Together with egni and some other women we visited a big collection of catfigures. The private apartment looks like a museum. There was no room without catdolls or other cathings.

First we made friends with a huge Puss in Boots. He was so friendly. From his hat we had a great view to all the interesting things.

In the kitchen the ladies had aperitif and we another look around.

Than we played with a Puss in Boots marionette.

Than we relaxed on the sideboard, while egni took many, many more pictures. She was so thrilled.

And mom, next week we will go on holiday with egni and her hubby. She is very mystical, and do not reveal anything.
But first some other things will happen.
Bye mom, love you.

Posted Jul 2, 2013, 8:08 pm
Hi there
We are sitting in a bus on our way to the Zurich Airport, where we will meet Linus from Berlin. He comes as a housekeeper, while egni and their hubby will be in holiday.

Waiting for Linus


Posted Jul 2, 2013, 8:36 pm
Hi Mom
Great surprise!!!
Egni will pick us up to Russia! Have you ever been there? It's so great! We get very excited. But we have to travel in her suitcase, because of the customs. We will keep calm, till we have arrived.

And now, here we are in Moscow on board a ship called MS Georgij Tschitscherin. We are so nervous, because of all the things, which will happen.


First we had to learn about safety on board. All guests hat to try their life vests. Of course there were no vests for us, but we go with egni, who will save us first.



Posted Jul 2, 2013, 9:17 pm
The first three days we were staying in the harbour of Moscow. So we had a sight-seeing-tour by bus and by boat to all the beautiful landmarks.

This is our bus. We are sitting on the windscreen wiper. Notice the mirroring.

And this is our sign to the Kreml from the boat trip.

Mum, we could't take fotos all these churches, abbeys, monuments and places. But every now and than we had the chance to do. Here we will show the Kreml with its Red Place to you.




We were also visting the general store GUM. That's enormous. We were totally confused.

From the "Sperlingsberge" we took a bird's eye view to Moscow.

In the afternoon we had some time to get to know our ship.

View out of our cabine.

And now outside our cabine number 331. The window is mirroring a lot of things.

Soon in was evening and after dinner we went our once more, to visit Moscow by night. For us it was dangerous, so Egni hid us and only once we make friends with the tour guide, which show to pretty metro stations to us.
She was so kind and kept us save.

After we were back, the ship startet to our next object: Uglitsch.

Posted Jul 7, 2013, 8:29 pm
Today we visited the Kreml Uglitsch. We had a nice promenade and our guide told us very interesting stories.


Back on board we took this picture for you.

Posted Jul 7, 2013, 8:42 pm
Today we saw "Verklärungskloster" and "Prophet-Ilias-Kirche" in Jaroslawl. It was difficult to take pictures, because there were so many soldiers and policemen. We heard, that Valentina Tereschkowa, who was the first female cosmonaut on june 15th 1963, visited her hometown, on the occasion of her 50th anniversary.
We could see all the places we would like.

In the evening we had a special dinner, with original slavic food. Egni told us, to taste the funny starter.

Posted Jul 7, 2013, 8:50 pm

We arrived at St. Petersburg and had one more sightseeing tour. Very interesting!


Smolny cathedrale.


Blut- und Auferstehungskathedrale

Posted Jul 7, 2013, 9:21 pm
What a great day!
First we visited the summer residence (Katharinenpalast) of the tsarina Katharina, with the replica of the legendary "Bernsteinzimmer". There it is forbidden to take pictures. But what we saw was gigantic.

In the afternoon we went to the Eremitage. It's one of the largest museums in the world.  Every day 50'000 people come to visit it. And they told us a detail: If one would stay only one minute to every exhibit it would take more the 10 years to see all.


Part of the Eremitage from the back.


Alexandersäule. The biggest monument of this art with 47,5 meters. It's well-positioned in the middle of the "Palastplatz".

Dear mom <3

good news. We have reached the coast.

Now we are waiting for a ship, which give us a lift towards Iran.

Thank goodness we met some missionaries in the jungle, which had new clothes for Crossy. His old clothes were ripped during the escape from the kidnappers.

We made a fire and hope that anyone (but not the kidnappers) would see it:


And we have no good news about Mr. F.M. Baer. He wasn't at the agreed meeting point :(
We can only hope that his escape was successful too.

Please cross your fingers for a ship....

Love you, mom <3

we got shocked, missed our home so long time - and then mom, excitedly waiting for us, run into the yard and embraced us - that's we missed all the time - thx god, we are back HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


then she brought us into the house and we felt warm and so comfortable we didn't do since months.......... we got speechless when we noticed what she had prepared while waiting for us!!!!!
we took a shower and sit down content and held our peace and made use whatever mom prepared for us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

still in tehran for the windows of ipue'son1 - the next adventure... as it should be started in the morning at 7 AM, but the truck arrived in the afternoon and the first window entered the flat at 4 PM!!!!!!!!!! they are just working hard and hopefully will be finished this eve!!!!!!!!!!
it was so interesting for me - I've never seen PVC-windows!!? and the weather was spring-like and we could pretty support the open windows - holes in the wall the whole day!! I'm so curious when we'll get back to tabriz!!!!!!!!!!!!!?!?!

yes, they worked so fast and now at 8 PM they finished the windows - but with a *but* like usual.... the factory only sent white silicon, but the windows are white only from inside, but brown from outside.. and they didn't sent brown silicon... so there is a reason we had to stay another night in tehran, waiting for the stuff in the morning to continue.............................................


Posted Jan 30, 2014, 10:56 pm

after finished there we went to the next quarter and on our way we met a GIANT playmobil man!!!!!

Posted Mar 9, 2014, 1:13 pm
well, we didn't made it home not yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
and here you may see us  to enter a new scarf-shop in a modern neighbourhood in the pedestrian zone, and as it is only 2 weeks before the IR new year, they were soooo busy and we weren't able to take pics that much.. but the shop was worth to see.. it belongs to a nephew of ipue's hubby, and he was working there hard together with his wife and two other ladies... the IR women are mad for beautiful scarfs, specially for norouz, the beginning of spring!!!!!!!!!
believe it, we learned there are luxurous silk scarfs with a price of 15.000.000 rials!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! who is mad enough to spend so much money for a scarf?????? but there are customers, too!!!!!!

ipuenktchen had chosen a beautiful black and white one!! her hubby got the scarf for her as an *EIDI*, means a gift for their new year holidays!!! do you think we toyvoyagers will get eidi here, too??????????? we heard about that the kids will get pocket money from the elder ppl for new year holidays!!!?!?! so we could get !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! we'll keep our fingers crossed!!!

lots of ppl here are spending their new year holidays by *did-o-bazdid*, visit and return visit........... nowadays many ppl are going for holidays to escape from all this visites, but in ipue's first nearly 15 - 20 years going for holidays was unusual and the visites was the greatest thing of new year holidays.......... but it's not so bad to go to see ppl which you never wouldn't see normally.. perhaps only on mourning ceremonies.....  but everything is changing, and since there are the cellphones so common, it's a part of new year holidays to call who ever you could find...........  or send a funny sms..

ipue don't do this that much, but if they are doing visites, they like to spend time there, and so we did today at 2 places!!!!!!!!

Posted Mar 23, 2014, 10:09 am

but we brought our portable radio with us out into the garden, and so we had fun and music and the work was a bit more endurable.........

Posted Mar 28, 2014, 10:54 pm
heyyyyyyyyyy everyyyyyyyyyybodyyyyy!!!!!!

as it is the main goal of IR ppl to visit each other during the new year holidays, today it was ipue's turn to wait for guests!! and we were very excited what will happen....  the days before we saw she was busy to get nuts and cookies/ pastry and yesterday her son2 went to buy lots of fruits... and so on............... and when ppl are arriving you have to serve first the tea and cookies or pastry. later nuts and other sweets, and at last the fruits!!!!!!!! this is difficult coz they all don't arrive at the same time.. and you must not forget to whom you served whatever....

:( :rolleyes: :o

Today we have a great mission to do. A life mission.

Our host take us to Lady Liberty. And - surprise - she ordered Crown Tickets for us. So we didn't care this sign:


Here is our ticket - can you see our names?


And turtles took us up to the top of Lady Liberty. A lot of stairs, but no problem for her. And the view!



Back on the ground it was the perfect time for the souvenir photo:



Wow! We were as near as Lady Liberty, that we could see her strands of hair inside the head!

Posted Jan 4, 2015, 6:54 pm
Today we arrived at a place, we know from former times.
First we checked our luggage - everything was alright. Yeah!


A nice couple says "hello" to us. Tommy and Annika will accompany us during the next weeks.



We are very excited, where we will go...

Posted Jan 4, 2015, 7:40 pm

aaaawwwww - short news from somewhere over the ocean....

Posted Jan 4, 2015, 7:57 pm
Our first day in the United States.

Turtles looked very tired and didn't feel good this morning. The airline had lost her bycicle, we had a thunderstorm this morning and the motel wasn't very cosy. Also everything was very different to Europe.

But she smiles and says: Let's go and have a look at the Mall of America.


At the mall we visited the Lego store. We had a lot of fun with the little green Lego bricks. But then turtles shouted for us - she couldn't find us - can you?



Posted Jan 19, 2015, 11:37 pm

But we all swore black and blue that they crashed the moment ipue came to our rescue, so nothing had happened at all. (the uncaring mom was still ashamed...)

Hello everybodyyyyyyyy!!!!

We travelled comfortably in our sleeping bags and when we woke up, we were in Delft! We got a friendly reception by a lot of TV's at Emjay's house.
We couldn't believe we were in Holland. But Hollandia, the orange bear, told us it was true.

Posted Mar 24, 2015, 9:31 am
It's spring in Delft! Yoohoooooo!!!!

Posted Mar 24, 2015, 9:34 am
We came to Delft to look at the Delft Blue ceramics. But first we went to the home of Emjay's mum. She has some Delft Blue items too!
Well, I don't think we need to visit the museum anymore  ;)

Posted Mar 24, 2015, 9:37 am
Delft is home to the Technical University. We are students now.  :p

Posted Mar 24, 2015, 9:38 am
Look what we built! Aren't you proud of us?  ;)

Posted Mar 24, 2015, 9:39 am
Oh wow!!!! Here we are at the ceramic museum!

Those people in Delft are crazy! They even drive around in Delft Blue cars!

Posted Mar 24, 2015, 9:41 am
This is only the hall way.

Posted Mar 24, 2015, 9:43 am
This is how the ceramic is made. First it is white, than the artist applies black paint. After baking in a hot oven, the ceramic is turned blue. Amazing!!!!

Posted Mar 24, 2015, 9:47 am
Here are two of the artists. We didn't want to disturb them, so we quietly took a picture and left them to work.
Everything is handpainted, can you imagine? You have to have a very steady hand!!!!

Posted Mar 24, 2015, 10:11 am
Here are some fine examples of ceramics.

Posted Mar 24, 2015, 10:13 am
This is the Vermeer Room. Maybe you know Vermeer was a famous Dutch painter. He lived in Delft. One of his paintings is recreated in Delft Blue.

Posted Mar 24, 2015, 10:15 am
This is the famous tulip vase. Tulips used to be very expensive. In this vase you only have to put a few flowers and it looks impressive already!  :D

Posted Mar 24, 2015, 10:16 am
Suny, us and former Queen Beatrix!

Posted Mar 24, 2015, 10:17 am
Awesome!!!!! This is Rembrandt's "Night Watch" in Delft Blue tiles. Wow, it's sooooo big!!!!

Posted Mar 24, 2015, 10:19 am
Hi, Miffy!

Posted Mar 24, 2015, 10:20 am
Not only blue, but sometimes also other colours are used. Like on this vase. Carefully, don't bump into it!!!!

Posted Mar 24, 2015, 10:23 am
This is the signature you have to look for, when you want to buy real Delft Blue ceramics.

Posted Mar 24, 2015, 10:25 am
Posing in a Delft Blue wooden shoe!

Posted Mar 24, 2015, 10:28 am
Here we are in the factory, where the ceramics are baked.
We saw some finished and unfinished items.

Posted Mar 24, 2015, 10:29 am
Hi, Mrs. Cow! How are you?

Posted Mar 24, 2015, 10:31 am
This tableau of playing kids was made in the 19th century. Some of the worker's kids were the models.

Posted Mar 24, 2015, 10:32 am
We watched a movie about the process of making Delft Blue.

Posted Mar 24, 2015, 10:36 am
Here we are in the souvenir shop. A lot of beautiful things, but... a bit to expensive for bagpackers like us!

Posted Mar 24, 2015, 10:38 am
Still.... we bought you a small souvenir. We won't tell what it is. Wait and see, mum!!!!!!

Blue greetings from

Possy & Crossy

Here we are again. We're going to the city center by tram. Yoohooooo!!!

Posted Apr 1, 2015, 12:11 pm
These are just lamp posts, but they are dressed up with Delft blue ceramics!

Posted Apr 1, 2015, 12:13 pm
And what about this bench? It's made from broken Delft blue tiles. Nice, huh? You can hardly see us, because we are white and blue too!

Posted Apr 1, 2015, 12:16 pm
So we went for a walk, although the wind was blowing fiercely. This is the Old Church. It has a leaning tower, just like the tower of Pisa  :D

Posted Apr 1, 2015, 12:20 pm
Nice historic building all around.

Posted Apr 1, 2015, 12:23 pm
This is the New Church and the Market Place. The New Church has the highest tower of the Netherlands. It is being renovated, as you can see. And the Market Place is the biggest of the Netherlands. Well, we are proud it be here!!!  :D

Posted Apr 1, 2015, 12:24 pm
Here you can see how hard the wind was blowing! It was a bit scary for little toys like us!  :o

Posted Apr 1, 2015, 12:25 pm
Say cheeeeese!!!!

Posted Apr 1, 2015, 12:27 pm
A lot of Delft blue in the souvenir shops.

Posted Apr 1, 2015, 12:28 pm
This strange fellow is sticking out his tongue to us!!!

Posted Apr 1, 2015, 12:29 pm
This is the townhall.

Posted Apr 1, 2015, 12:30 pm
The Delft blue heart of the city

Posted Apr 1, 2015, 12:33 pm
And this is something completely different!!! We are at a rehearsal of a Shakespeare play. Emjay is the co-producer. Wow, the players are really good!!! We love Shakespeare!!!

Well, this was a very cultural day. Bye, bye, mum!!!!!

Delft blue greetings from

We forgot to post this picture! This is a painting at the house of Emjay's mum. And look... we saw the real thing!!! (Without the snow, though.)

Posted Apr 5, 2015, 11:25 am
Hi everbodyyyyy!!!!!

We went to visit Emjay's mum in hospital. She is recovering from a knee operation. Her room has a fantastic view over Delft. In the background you can see the tower of the Old Church, New Church and Maria van Jesse Church.

Posted Apr 5, 2015, 11:27 am
Happy Easter, everyone!!!!

Posted Apr 5, 2015, 4:46 pm
We went for a little walk and we met this friendly cow. Can you spot us, mum?

Posted Apr 5, 2015, 4:47 pm
This is a kind of Gaudi bench with broken tiles. Just like the bench we saw a couple of day ago with blue tiles. The words mean: "Let's have a party"!

Posted Apr 8, 2015, 11:55 am
Helloooooo everybodyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!

After Easter we thought: NOW is a good time to leave The Netherlands and go to.... CHINA!!!
How exciting! We're going to Papa Always in Beijing.
Emjay made new sleepingbags for us, because the old once were torn. Nice, huh?

Posted Apr 8, 2015, 11:57 am
All our friends said goodbye. And now we are on our way! It's a long trip, but we will be comfy in our sleeping bags!

Beijing in the North China,So we're going down south in spring.

The first we go to Changzhou.Changzhou,nicknamed the Dragon City,is situated in China’s most prosperous Yangtze River delta.

For some reason we came to Changzhou to work, we still  to go to the most famous Chinese Dinosaur Park  in Changzhou.But we went to the late, no time to play playground.What a pity :(

I Hope next time we can come again.

Next we go to Shanghai. :p

Posted May 6, 2015, 10:31 am

We came to Shanghai! B)

I have heard of Shanghai,I am very excited.
Shanghai is a prosperous city,There is many-storied buildings,Beijing also a bustling cityBut the two cities are different in dozens of ways large and small.As the largest and most prosperous city in the nation, Shanghai is the economic, financial and cultural center of China, while Beijing is the political heart.

In the evening we went to the WaiTan to see the night view.The Bund (Wai Tan) is one of the symbols of Shanghai.There are a lot of couples, here is the date the holy land in Shanghai :o
It is a pretty sight.To enjoy the music , with blowing wind , walking hand in hand with beikaozhaobei enjoy this romantic.

We found interesting things at the dinner table,I love this car.I want to going to a driving test B)

Posted May 7, 2015, 7:57 am
HI ~~I'm coming

Today we went to The Old City God's Temple.

Old City God's Temple (Laochenghuangmiao)is a major yet relatively inactive, Taoist temple in Shanghai.

That area is now a highrise residence building. The "former" temple is known as the Old City God's Temple. The Old City God's Temple and the enclose Yuyuan are not only famous tourist sites but also popular shopping attractions. There are boutiques, shops selling local specialties, as well as large jewelry stores, department stores and fabulous local snack restaurants to be found here.

There are too many people here,This street is very buzzes,We also eat a lot of good food,But no time to take pictures I was tired.I'm going back to the hotel to sleep. :p

Posted May 12, 2015, 10:04 am
Today we went to the Shanghai Museum of natural history.

This is a new museum,so We're curious.
Its unique architectural form of a round top with a square base, symbolizing the ancient Chinese philosophy that the square earth is under the round sky, is a distinguished architectural combination of traditional feature and modern spirit.

The museum there are a lot of interesting Exhibition.About the human and world.We had a good time :D

Posted May 13, 2015, 9:39 am
Today we leave Shanghai to Xitang.
It takes about 90 minutes to drive down to Xitang from Shanghai; from a 21st-century megalopolis to an altogether dreamier slice of history.

To call this lovely water-village an oriental Venice would be wildly over the mark, yet it shares similarities with its more famous Italian counterpart.Canals dissect twisting narrow lanes and pathways, rendering the community traffic-free and boat friendly.  Worn stone steps lead down to the waters and hopelessly pretty bridges span them.

Even though the place is small, it's chock-full with museums, temples and places of historic and cultural interest.

Night we live in the town,Here during the day and night is not the same.
In the morning,water flows beneath bridges,thin mist is like silk,pinkish walls on both banks stand tall and erect and tiled houses are reflected inversely in the water.In the evening,the setting sun shines slantwise,songs come from fishing boats,lamps flicker and the fragrance of wine drifts.The whole old town is like a poem and a picture.In this town,people will feel that they are seemingly in an earthly paradise.

Even though Xitang is small, it's something of a centre for the arts. In summer, traditional folk operas, concerts and a local cinema play by the waterside in the open-air. And all year-round, young artists from the cities come to paint the alleyways and canals.

It is an exquisitely beautiful spot.

Posted May 17, 2015, 12:18 am
HELLOOOOOOOOOOOO, everybodyyyyy!!!!!!!!

We leaved Xitang to Wuzhen.We  arrived WUzhen one hour by car.Wuzhen is also a old town,There are like with Xitang, but not the same.

Situated in the north of Zhejiang Province, the beautiful water town of Wuzhen is one of those ancient towns. It is a charming place full of ancient bridges, traditional hotels, boutiques and restaurants all built around an amazing water network that is part of the Beijing-Hangzhou Canal, the longest canal in the world.Over the past thousand years, Wuzhen has not changed its name, water system, or way of life. It is a living museum for an ancient civilization's history, food, and traditions.The buildings of Wuzhen are all a century or more old and built using traditional wood and stone architecture with tile roofs.For centuries the local people of this area have been building their homes and markets along the river's edge. Spacious, beautiful courtyards are hidden by the thousands in between the buildings, providing a delightful discovery at almost every turn.

In this ancient town there is plenty to do, or nothing at all if your aim is to relax. The place is quiet, yet also offers wine bars, pottery and glass workshops, theaters, and an open-air film pavilion.Take in the delightful town from the water on a traditional wood boat, and stay in one of the many luxurious hotels or guest accommodations in residents' homes for a true taste of Chinese village life. :cyclops:

Today we are still in Wuzhen.Wuzhen is fall into two towns,east town and wes town.One of them is a new town, one is the old town.Today we went to the old town,East town.

    Here to keep the ancient town of the original appearance.

  The wine brewing industry is prosperous in Wuzhen. In the Ming Dynasty, there were over 20 brewing workshops in Wuzhen, and the three most famous ones were Gaogongsheng, Shunxing and Yong Sheng Workshops.

  The Woodcarving Museum, formerly the residence of local rich people Xu Family, also named Hundred Flower Hall, is well-known for its exquisite wood carvings. It’s carved beams and painted rafters, especially the human figures, birds and four-feet animals on the doors and windows by various carving skills.

  Here the  road is very narrow,I think it is very interesting.Next we are going to Hangzhou. B) B)

We came to Hangzhou. :cyclops:
Hangzhou is one of the most famous tourist cities in China, not only famous for its natural beauty, but also famous for its history.
.Legend has it that the lake used to be an aus'picious pearl hewn into its sparkling shape by the Jade Dragon and the Golden Phoenix ,but it was later stolen by the Mother Queen of the West. When Jade Dragon and Golden Phoenix scrambled with the Mother Queen, this pearl acci'dentally fell onto a land that was known as Hangzhou.

It means just as there is paradise in heaven, there are Suzhou and Hangzhou on earth.  Lying on the west edge of Hangzhou city, West Lake is the symbol of Hangzhou as well as one of the most beautiful sights in China.  West Lake has all along been praised as a sparkling pearl.the whole lake is divided into 5 sections, namely the Outer Lake, North Inner Lake, West Inner lake, Yue Lake and Little South Lake, by Gu hill, Sudi Causeway, Baiti Causeway and Ruangong Mound.
And  the beauty of the  West Lake lies in its lingering  charm  that survives the change of seasons in a year and of hours in a day. Among its beautiful sights, the most famous sites are the Ten Sights in West Lake .

We  board and enjoy the beautiful scenery.The placid lake reflected the image of the trees.The breeze is on my face and body.I feel so good.

We also went to the  Lingyin Temple.It's sacred  and quiet .

This is a nice place. :D

today we had a day in cologne, full of sightseeing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
at first we had a look out of our window to see how close to the church our hotel had been situated!! it seemed as we could touch it.....

after breakfast we had a walk in the pedestrian zone... and we passed by an idol of son1' childhood, DIE MAUS, the symbol of the WDR tivi... we were looking for the post-office to send out our postcrossing cards brought with us!!!! here you can see some of ipue's knitted cards, sent out to kugusch and sparkly-. and then a famous place, the founding place of 4711 perfume. do you know from were it got it's name??? during the very olden times when the city got a real map there was a soldier to count the houses and gave this house the No. 4711, and just there was the production place of the perfume!!!

from there we entered all together the chocolate museum beside the river rhine, and it was really interesting for all of us!!!!

then the great moment when we saw the famous bridge with all the love-locks!!! it was specially stunning for ipue's hubby who know enough to imagine that perhaps 40 t weight is hanging on the bridge because of only all these locks!!!! and this is really dangerous, so we must not be angry, when the city from time to time let pick up all the locks!!!!!!!???!?! the kids had prepared also a lock for dear little KIA and so his mom & dad fixed it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HI ~~

Today we went to San Francisco's most famous scenic spot.

Lombard Street is an east–west street in San Francisco, California that is famous for a steep, one-block section with eight hairpin turns.

Golden Gate Park is the third most visited park in the United States.  The park is filled with gardens, museums, art, flowers, trees, lakes, birds and wildlife.

16th Ave Tiled Steps Project is a very interesting level, It was fun to look at the design and those who helped make the stairs.

The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate strait, the mile-wide, three-mile-long channel between San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean.The bridge is one of the most internationally recognized symbols of San Francisco, California, and the United States. But the weather is very bad when we go.There is often has fog and so cold.

Today we went to the  Castro.

Most know it for its fame as one of the nation’s first gay havens—an island of resistance against persecution and violence.

The neighborhood’s pride and its heart: the towering Castro Theater (. In its time, it was only a medium-sized neighborhood picture show place.

The area's bars are still solidly gay and the restaurants almost universally chic, but the tiny shops on the theater side of Castro Street carry irreplaceable knickknacks and objects d’art.

Just a few days ago here at the end of gay parade,It's a pity that we didn't catch up,I heard that it was a very busy day.

We went to the movies in the evening.<Ted2> is a very funny :cyclops:

We will spend the new year in Boracay, Philippines.

We're jetting off for a sunshine holiday in the Boracay~~ B)
BEIJING was rather cold , five below zero.We too need the warm sunshine.

We arrived at the hotel.It's very warm here.

The sea all around the island.sunshine and beach looks so beautiful.We had some food.We began to enjoy  forget all and disturbing carefree holiday, not sedulous ground orchestrates a lot of activity, think only silent the taste that enjoys leisure.

Posted Jan 6, 2016, 9:54 am
Today is the last day of 2015.

We wnet to thr Puka Beach
Puka beach second major Boracay beach, it is the pride of Boracay.
Puka beach shells are very famous in the 1970s and 1980s, Puka Shell was chosen for high-quality raw materials, used to make jewelry, rage, by people's favorite. Therefore, but a lot of people in Puka beach collect shells can now see the remains of the time left.

A famous singer LiangJingRu in China is holding a wedding at here.

We spent the whole morning collecting seashells on the beach. We found many beautiful shells on the shore.

The New Year's bell will soon toll to usher in the year2015.
This year I went to many cities in many countries for travel, I have met many old friends and got to know a lot of new friends, so I felt very happy! For some reason, I didn't update in time. But I've photographed a lot and there are more photos that I have not processed.But when I look at them, it brings back many memories. I will be in the days to update and share with us.

I made a wish for the new year: Next year we can go to more places to travel and May my family and my friends live in peace and harmony throughout the new year.

Wish everyone a happy new year!

We're going to the white sand beach in the sun today.
White Beach, Boracay's biggest tourist attraction, stretches some four kilometers on the western side of the island, mostly within the barangay of Balabag. It is largely because of the pristine, white powdery sand of White Beach and the crystal-clear blue water of the surrounding sea that Boracay is often called "the world's most beautiful tropical island."

The northern end of the beach is "lorded over" by Fridays, the southern end by Lorenzo South. In between you will find all kinds of accommodation, from native bamboo-and-nipa bungalows to Western-style concrete buildings.

The most famous view of Boracay is the sunset. We sat on a sailing boat to see the sunset.
But I can't take a picture. The sailing is too exciting. I was wet all over. We'll play on this again tomorrow.

Posted Jan 8, 2016, 9:54 am

We're still at the beach today.
I really like the sea. Seeing it makes me relaxed and peaceful. My home is near the sea and I love walking on the beach. After sunset, the sea becomes so different from daytime. The sea breeze makes me comfortable. Walking without shoes feels great, because the sand is so soft. Sometimes, we will play games on the beach or make some sand sculptures. It's really funny.

Posted Jan 8, 2016, 10:29 am
Today, we played in the hotel swimming pool. Also went to the spa. The island is rife wit SPA, Here's the Philippines massage is very famous,Spa consultants and therapists are experienced in all of the treatments and can assist guests in planning personalised spa treatment.

Swimming and massage, hat really good feel. But we're going home tomorrow.
Goodbye Boracay
We're back in the winter
But I know there are more interesting things waiting for us in the Beijing.

Today we went to the Olympic Park.

Due to the stadium's outward appearance, it was nicknamed "The Bird's Nest".
It looks like a bird's nest woven with branches. It contains a bowl-shaped stadium which is red. The whole building is related through the giant reticular structure, without one column in the interior.
It has been a landmark and a longstanding symbol of the Olympics. During the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, the opening ceremony, closing ceremony, track and field meets, and men's football final will be held here.

It is the world's largest steel structure and the most complex stadium ever constructed. Its design had to be inspiring and be able to withstand an earthquake.
After the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, the stadium will become a sports and entertainment facility for the residents of Beijing.

The Beijing National Aquatics Center,also officially known as the National Aquatics Center,and colloquially known as the Water Cube,is an aquatics center that was built alongside Beijing National Stadium in the Olympic Green for the swimming competitions of the 2008 Summer Olympics

Despite its nickname,the building is not an actual cube,but a cuboid (a rectangular box). is a shape very similar to the structure of "H2O",

In the evening it will make a colorful light, Much better than the day. PAPA said she had the chance to bring us here again at night.

We wen to the Jingshan Park, an former imperial garden!

The mount was named the Hill of 10,000 Years and became an imperial garden to the north of the imperial Palace.

The name of "Jingshan" was given in 1655 during the Qing Dynasty. In 1751 five pavilions were built on the hill in a straight line. Wanchun Pavilion in the middle is on the central axis of the old Beijing city. So This is the center of Beijing.We From there one has a grand view of the former Imperial Palace.

We passed the the Imperial Palace. This is one of the most famous scenic spots in Beijing.
The tourist bus is very lovely. We took a video on it.
PAPA was thinking about putting the video about us on website, Such as YouTube. And I'm looking forward to seeing myself.

It's snowing in Beijing. The first snows of winter ! The weather is very cold. We go to the park to see the snow. The lake has begun to freeze.
In the lake opposite the tower is the CCTV Tower. This is a sign of modern architectural function, They can launch 8 sets and 10 sets of radio and television.
The snow was banked up along the roadside. But So much snow has already melted away. We can snowmen and throw the snowballs.

Posted Mar 17, 2016, 8:09 am
A It's been a long day. We went on a trip to the Great Wall. Lt's snowing outside! Although it is very cold, but I believe that the scenery is very beautiful. So we set out.

The Great Wall of China is called the "Ten thousand Ii Great Wall" in Chinese. In fact, it' s more than 6 000 kilometres long. It winds its way from west to east, across deserts, over mountains, through valleys till at last it reaches the sea. It is one of the wonders of the world.

There are many sections of the Great Wall in Beijing. We went to the Mutianyu Great Wall today. Mutianyu Great Wall Travel Area is situated in Huairou District of Beijing. The architecture of Mutianyu Great Wall is of special style.It has closely packed enemy towers and [perilous passes. It was built up with battlements on both side of walls. On southeast side, there is one general gateway platform connected with three enemy
towers together, which is quite rare in the whole Great Wall; in northwest side, there are the Great Wall section named as Ox Horn Edge built above the sea level of over 1000 meters and the sections named as Arrow Buckle and Flying Eagle Facing Upward built on the knife-steep mountain peak, which look extraordinary and rugged. The whole section of Great Wall stretches and winds like a huge flying dragon.

We finally came to the Great Wall, I was so excited.Great Wall is painted of pure white and coated with silver costume, showing a northland scene.

We walked for a long time. The higher we climbed, the more awe-inspiring the scenery became. The Great Wall is really amazing! I can hardly imagine how it was built thousands of years ago. There are a lot of foreign tourists like us. Everyone is excited about it. The snow has stopped, yet it's getting colder.

When we were down The Great Wall ,by Bill Clinton former American Presidont rode the car to climb The Great Wall on June 28,1988!Only one car. What a coincidence!

Many of them have come to know the famous Chinese saying: "He who does not reach the Great Wall is not a true man."Now I’m a true man!

hi, everybodyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

we got so excited today when ipue read the german daily newspaper from her original hometown hannover, HAZ, and she pointed us an article about a german teacher, 45 y/o, collecting playmos since an age of 4...

boahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, he collected about 10.000 playmos and a large stuff of miniature worlds like vehicles, houses, furniture, forts, castles, animals and so on until back to medievial and baroque era.... he placed them in a large hall close to his living place..

and now, ppls, believe it, there will be a great exhibition*playing history* in the hannover historical museum from parts of his collection, up from aug, 19!!!!! it would be so great, if we could be there, too..  to tell him from our adventures, although we have not these great houses and stuff... but the things we need we have!!!!!

and we have seen the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

her hair-style.. as she got tired of alltime the same model...
but when she came back home frome the hairdresser's she
noticed Crossy was upset and didn't like her wig... oh, what she
can do???????????????????

so she decided to use it 2 or 3 days but not for easter and it
will be better to put it in the attic and never use it again.......


but for the easter pics it was too late, and all her pics were
with the wig... never mind.....
