I'm Iggy. This is me in the picture below. I'm really nervous about my first trip around the world. I don't know where I'm going yet. Hopefully some place nice.  I'm going to have an appointment for measuring and weighing soon. I'm very nervous. Yesterday I ate too much popcorn....I hope that didn't influence my weight too much....I have to stay in shape until the weighing is over.

I've successfully survived weighing and measuring. My mum says I'm a healthy little guy with a good height and a normal BMI. I'm very proud. I've actually grown a lot during the last two months. I hope that doesn't mean that the puberty has started early. When do tigers normally enter puberty? I really don't want to speak in strange octaves and shave my face right now...the popcorn really wasn't such a good idea. I gained a gramm of weight! This calls for a healthy diet :)

Today I went on a short walk up the hill behind my house. It was very steep and I first had to relax on a bench before I could take some pictures. The additional pounds I had yesterday during weighing are deifnitely gone now. I had a wondeful view over my village on top of the hill. It was very sunny and hot. We had a clear sky and could see all the way to the next bigger city. My mum showed me the castle ruin called "Hohenneuffen", which is only a few minutes away.  I took a photo with it. I'm now pretrty exhausted and need to rest and eat. I'll update my Travellog later.

Wow, I'm going to the United States in a couple of days! How exciting! It's time for some preparation before my trip. Mummy still has to make my ID tag so I spent the day increasing my knowledge of this huge country. After looking the country up in an atlas I started improving my English vocabulary and cultural knowledge. Afterwards I started learning the National Anthem by heart. Mummy told me to stop singing because  the windows started to crack...apparently I am not a talented singer :)

Mummy also told me that I need to go to get an immunization in order to be allowed to enter the US. When I saw the syringe I was very scared, but it wasn't so bad in the end. Now I'm fit to go!

Wow, what an exciting day today! I'm starting my long journey to the USA today. Hopefully I'll arrive there in one piece. I packed all my bags and a bunch to eat but Mummy told me that the food and bags were way too much and wouldn't fit into my package. So  I had to unpack again, which took a long time. Afterwards I snuggled into my box and now I am finally on my way! See you in the USA, I am so excited!

Hello Mother and all of my friends.
I am finally in the United States and I am in one piece. I had a really long flight and it was kinda scary but by the end of the flight I really enjoyed the trip on the airplane.  B) When I arrived at my host family in Fairforest South Carolina I was meet by the family that I am staying with great fanfare. I really like meeting a bunny named Butterscotch and her brother Paul. Mom, they really are making me fill very welcome in there house. Mom,Did I tell you the food on the airplane was small and did not taste very good. I am so wishing I packed a little bit more food for my trip because I am so hungry. My host said that they will take me out to eat so I will go for now but I just want you to know that I am safe and happy in the USA.
Love Iggy

Hello Mummy and all of my friends.
I am so full that I can't even breath. My host family thought I needed to have a big meal after that long flight so they took me to a restaurant in Spartanburg SC to get me the national dish of America and it is a Hamburger. That is the national dish of the USA :stare: I can get that back home in Germany. Wow Ok I guess I thought I would travel to the Usa and have some super duper awesome food but my first meal was a Hamburger. Now don't get me wrong it was a very good hamburger and they even made it extra special by putting bacon and BBQ pork on it. I have never had BBQ pork on a Hamburger. Paul told me that BBQ was a southern food and In the south USA they make it wonderful. The host family even bought me a appetizer to share with everyone of fried mushrooms. yum I so think I need to take a nap now. I will post more tomorrow Mummy and friends.
Love and miss you
