Hi! I'm going to upload a few pictures of my little adventures in Madrid.

My mom, daddy and I are into collecting postcards, you have a picture of myself with a bunch we bought the other day. Also, I love eating paella and to be with my fluffy friend Indira, we like getting into trouble from time to time. I am looking forward to travelling abroad, although I am scared of planes and heigths. We really hope you like the pictures below. Cheers!!!

Some pictures in Casa de Campo in a sunny day. And I paid a visit to my best friend, but he is very shy and does not want to be taken photos. I had a lot of fun because I love trees and the countryside!

Bye-Bye Mom!!!!
It's time to head for Switzerland! I have had loads of fun with Yuma these days, but we have to separate for now. This will be my first journey, so I'm a bit restless (also excited and curious). But don't worry, I'll keep you up-to-date with my adventures abroad. I'll miss you!!!

Hola mommy,
This morning I arrived in Switzerland. Jasper just came back from shopping when the postman rang twice. Ring twice means important mail - me.
I was able to climb out of my jacket - and then I sat there.

I heard faint giggling but I did not know from where.

Little by little TV's climbed out from between the herb pots.

I was greeted warmly

but as the black Something  spread its wings I was startled terrible.

A bat - but a very nice.

I showed them my card from the beautiful Madrid, my stamp collection and the fridge magnet.

Jasper was very pleased and says thanks.

My passport impressed everyone very much.

Then we played hide and seek between the herb pots.

Now we all smell very pleasant.
That's it for today. I miss you - a bit -  but I'll have a lot of fun.

Hi mommy and daddy ,
the weather was wonderful and so we took a walk to a small river called Thur.

On our way we saw really old apple trees

and an apiary.

We approached very carefully - nobody wanted to be stung.

Some flowers were seen.

Here is our romantic river Thur.

( Thur is a 131 km (81 mi ) long river in north- eastern Switzerland. Its source is near the mountain Santis , in the south -east of the canton of St. Gallen. It flows into the river Rhine on the border with Germany south of Schaffhausen.)

We found a "TV waterfall "

and frog spawn. Looks like some frogs.

Oh, oh looks like many, many frogs.

Time to enjoy the sun.

Even more harbingers of spring.

A perfect place to think.

On our way we found many beautiful places.

Then I climbed a rock - or a root ?

I think both is correct. This tree holds on with its roots in the rock.
The flood of recent years has swept the earth.

A short rest on soft moss.

Jasper told her apple us.

We found wild garlic in abundance.

It's so beautiful here.

Many , many greetings

Hi mommy,
Today I had a special experience. A hot-air balloon flew very low over our house.

How I wish I would have flown with.

Hi there,
what a surprise this morning. SNOW!

Yesterday afternoon we had 23 ° - and now?

Chattering teeth at 3 °. Brrr

Hello mom,
because it is so cold outside (no weather for a camel from Spain)
I helped to bake bread.
Jasper filled the flour, yeast, salt and water in the food processor.

I pressed the start button.

Looks funny.

After the dough was kneaded

I had to wait.

and wait

and wait

and wait again.

Finally, the dough had risen enough

and I was able to form a bread.

And then - wait again.


After an hour, Jasper pushed the loaf of bread in the hot oven.

One hour later we picked out a crusty, fragrant bread.

It tasted wonderful.

Love you mom

Hello mom,
Today we visited a special place - Quinten.
The 56 inhabitants large village of Quinten on the north shore of Lake Walen is only accessible on foot or by boat. As a car-free village Quinten is a popular intermediate and end points for hikes. Quinten has due to its unique location on the sunny side of Lake Walen and at the foot of the Churfirsten a Mediterranean climate with an annual average temperature of about 12.0 ° C, where grapes, figs, kiwi fruit and other exotic plants thrive. Also, various types of palm trees grow here. It is one of the warmest places in Switzerland. In addition, many protected reptiles such as lizards , fence lizards, smooth snakes, grass snakes and Aesculapian live in this ideal habitat for the animals.
We took the car to Murg and then by ship to Quinten.

The view was breathtaking.

We strolled through the small village

and walked along the lake.

We enjoyed the sun, nature and our lives.

By boat we were on our way home.

What a glorious day.

Sunny greetings

Hi to all at home,
because Jasper had a lot to do at work, host brother made ​​a few things with us.
1 Project: make Spring rolls.

Host Brother prepared the filling. He did not want any problems with Jasper when we cut ourselves in the paws, hooves or wings.
Then he showed us how to shape the spring rolls.

Not so easy but I think I have a certain talent for it.

We were all proud of our work and were looking forward to the meal.

And then the disaster - during frying the dough disappeared. Why? no idea. Only the filling remained.

But this was delicious.

We will try it again.

Posted Apr 12, 2014, 8:34 pm
Hello ,
our next project with host brother: make Mozzarella !
Yes, you read it correctly. We made cheese - mozzarella.
Host Brother studied chemistry and loves to try everything possible.
And we love to help him. (Jasper then always pray, that the kitchen does not explode)
Back to our cheese. We gave milk in a pot

and added some citric acid to it.

The whole we heated to ??? I do not remember - but it had to be exact.

Then we added Rennet.

Let stand a bit - stir a bit.

It looks disgusting.

This nasty stuff is called cheese curd

and is skimmed off.

The liquid that remains is heated.
Then you take something from the cheese curd and keep it short time in the hot liquid.

You pull apart the warm cheese mixture and fold them back together.

Over and over again, until it is completely smooth.

Then shape round - and ready is the mozzarella.

Of course we also formed small - TV style - cheese.

And just as naturally, we tried our homemade cheese.

Yummy, yummy!

cheesy greetings

Hello mom,
It's Easter and it's snowing.

No chance to look for Easter eggs outdoors.

So we had a small - but fine Easter Parade indoors.

Led by a funny sheep marched the tastiest things past us.

First, we looked

and then we grabbed.

Despite the weather we had our fun

and enjoyed the treats.

I hope you have also enjoyed Easter and kiss you

Hi mommy
yesterday we took a hike along the Thur.
We wanted to see what happened to the frog spawn and what else has changed since our last trip.
So Jasper filled the backpack and we went into the sun.
The grass is grown and the old apple trees are in bloom.

Also, the forest is green slowly.


Small tadpoles were removed from the frog spawn.

A little break in the middle of dandelion

We walked on

and came to the rock wall

- the frost and the water they gnaw slowly.

The bridge of the bypass road.

Our path was narrow, steep and sometimes a bit dangerous.

The large leaves on the riverbank invited to sunbathe.

We crossed a small creek and sat down to picnic.

Bread, cheese and sausage were delicious.

As we walked Jasper suddenly saw something very special.

A Tree - gnawed of beavers.

The Beavers are here - great!

Because it's still snowing in the mountains, the Thur does not have much water at the moment.

This is Jasper's favorite place - the view from the bridge into the gorge.

Looks very romantic.
Another narrow, steep path led us - at a rock wall?

No - into a tight dark passage.

- and then we saw the waterfall.

Isn't this a beautiful sight?

There we had to climb through.

The waterfall.

On the riverfront.

These bundles in the trees - this is grass.

Remains of the last flood.

Isn't it beautiful here?

We had a wonderful day

Love you mommy

Hi mum,
rain, rain, rain.
So I tried to keep myself fit with strength training.

Love you

Posted May 5, 2014, 7:01 pm
Hi mommy,
after endless rain we had no desire to sit at home. Therefore, we took the train and went to Jasper's daughter in Thun.

Thun is called the gateway to the Bernese Oberland. It is located where the River Aare flows out of Lake Thun (Thunersee), 30 km south of Bern. Besides tourism, machine and precision instrument engineering, the largest garrison in the country, the food industry and publishing are of economic, importance to Thun.
This bridge is a weir. It regulates the water level of the river Aare, which flows through the city. "750 years municipal law" on this occasion are all over the city works of art - also in the river.

Behind me you see the castle.

Here you see the machinery of the weir.

A View from the Bridge.

A nice old house and stormy waether.

Then we walked along the lake to the hotel.

Jasper's son in law had provided us a nightcap.

We slept very well.

Until tomorrow

Posted May 5, 2014, 7:39 pm
Hello again,
after getting up our first look was the weather. Oh well.
Incidentally, this is the hotel of Jasper's daughter and son in law.

In good weather you have a fantastic view of Lake Thun and the Bernese Alps.

After breakfast we took a walk by the lake.
This ship is one of the many excursion steamer.

We walked on, and came to this small chapel.

It is very popular with wedding couples. You have to book in advance at least one year.

This castle houses the Museum of Gastronomy.

A view over the lake.

Ferns in the park.

Then it was time to go home.

Bye for today - love you.

when we came home in the evening, an envelope lying on the table.
Jasper opened it and we - not a bit curious - dipped immediately our noses.

A moose.

Stoker knows him - it's Soeren from Germany.

We got a stormy welcome and greeted him warmly as well.

Then he took out his gifts.

Gummy bears for us and a postcard for Jasper ;-))

What a lovely surprise after a nice weekend (the gummy bears and Soeren - of course)

best wishes

Dear mommy,
Monday, sunshine and Jasper has to work. But not today! Sometimes overtime is very useful ;-))
Opened the big pocket, wrapped all TV's and camera - and off we went.
Jasper wanted to show us the Thur Waterfalls ( Thurwasserfälle ). Small - but fine.
The Thur waterfalls are two cascades. The water cascades down from steep rock faces, and on highest point drops from 23 meters (75 ft)
A short drive by car and right into flowering meadows.

Here the Thur is still very small.

And it is getting smaller.

We hiked into a small ravine.

First, we wanted to see everything from above.

This is the big fall.

And closer to the water!

About stairways and corridors in the rock we climbed up and down again. ( Sorry - it was too dark to photograph )
Bridges, walkways and narrow paths took us deeper into the canyon.

This is the small fall.

Our way back.

We rested on a bench, and rejoiced in the sun.

The Santis is still deep in snow.

We enjoyed this afternoon to the fullest.

I think of you!

Posted May 18, 2014, 10:17 am
Hi mom,
Jasper told me that you found a new host for me.
I will be traveling to Germany.
This means: time to say goodbye!
My friends stuck goodbye stamps in my album.

Jasper wrote a few words and all signed.

With some sadness we hugged and all wished me a happy journey.

Then I slipped into my jacket - the journey can continue.

Bye for now

Hello Mum,

I arrived in Sülfeld - and Dicker Kumpel gave me a warm welcome.

He introduced me to his other guests.

I showed all my stuff and we talked a lot.

I will write more soon!

Hello Mum,

I am on a Cruise-Ship. It is the MS Artania - and here you see my cabin.

Today was an important day - Poseidon came onto the ship, because we crossed the Arctic Circle. He was the man in green on the balcony. Some of his friends came too - strange people.

Many of the humans went there to get a ‘Polartaufe’- polar christening - we didn’t want it.

Yours Nuru

Hello Mum,

We arrived in the morning in Tromsö;, the sky was grey, but I was sure that it would be better later this day.

There was an icebreaker, but fortunately we didn‘t need it.

Later that morning we went to the botanical garden of Tromsö. There were many beautiful flowers from different mountain regions of the world.

This one was really big.

And this one was really blue.

I found a small waterfall.

And a lovely lake.

Do you know this cotton grass?

In the afternoon we went onto a hill and had great views over the city and the surroundings.

This was funny!

Another view to other mountains.

Our last stop was at this wonderful church, called Eismeerkathedrale -Arctic Cathedral.

What a wonderful day!
