Hey there!

Before I will explore the world, I would like to show you what I experienced in my homecountry!

The destination of the first journey I did with my mentor was, unfortunately, to the hospital. We stayed there some days and now everything is fine again.
Look how sweet I look with my head bandage! Thankfully only a joke :)

I love fooling around in the leaves!!
How marvelous autumn can be in Germany!
Unfortunately the weather was also a typicall october day - foggy and cold so that I could not see one of Dortmund´s landmarks, the "U". Can you see it?!

SchokoCookie! My friend! :-)

We spent a day together, probably our last day together until we will meet abroad! (For those who don´t know yet: our mentors Traumfrosch and SchokoCookie (don´t be confused, they have the same name :) ) bet who of us will travel more miles!)

I tried to complete one of my missions - fishing and catch a big fish, but there were no fishes...later my host told me I forgott to add some lures to my fishing-rod, next time I will do so!

Then we climbed up a tree and discovered a pond with some really strange looking animals I it. We ran to them and..they tried to pick us with their beak! (Do you know how they are called? They look a little bit like me, but they are definetly no raccoons!)

So we continued exploring the park and found a huge waterfall. But it was too cold to take a shower...

Found some delicious sweeties!

Today I travelled to Luxembourg Airport with my mentor Traumfrosch. How exciting!

Can you teach me to fly the helicopter and the airplane? Please :)

Posted Nov 21, 2011, 6:29 pm
Hey dude! Yes, you!

Would you like to be my first host?
I had a lot of fun with Traumfrosch but now I want to discover more of this amazing world!
Just send a message to us, so we can meet soon! :)

I am looking forward to cuddling up to you!

Today I made the acquaintance of Niko, he is and Advent calendar and will stay at Traumfrosch´s home until christmas.
I asked him to accompany me on my first travel (in some minutes I will start searching a friendly host, I am so excited), but he denied, saying he was to big...

Maybe I will meet him againg next year or the year after, depending on how long my journey will be :)

In behave of Traumfrosch I give a big THANK YOU to SchokoCookie who presented Niko to him!

Thank you for all your mails!!!

I am really excited about visiting Germany´s capital Berlin with Camaro5 and his hometown Schipkau in eastern Germany,
having a great time with annix in Milano,
flying across the Atlantic to visit acescorcio in Sao Paulo,
getting to know northern europe while staying at minnihiiru in Finland and finally
getting together with GeoCRAt in Dubai!!

It was so hard to decide where to go first, so I decided by chance, throwing the dice. I hope, my travelling dates fit to your schedule, if not, just contact Traumfrosch, so he can create a new TravelTicket for me :)

I´m really looking forward to meeting each one of you and having a great time!
Today I started travelling in a cushioned envelope, but it will only be a short trip so I can get accustomed to it.

Take care, we wil meet soon!!

Hi from my day in Senftenberg!
At first, I was at the Senftenberger See.

It's a mining lake and one part of the biggest/largest artificial lake plate in Europe! Yes, you read right!

There are also artists!

Nice view!

But it's very cold! No way for swimming!

Let's go to the beach!

And to the water edge!

Brrrr.... very cold!

A very nice location for pictures!

Like in a bed!

Where I am?

Can you see the dug walk?

Say Goodbye to one artificial sight in Senftenberg...

And the Senftenberger See with the brid vision. The red arrow marks the point, where we were just now. Can you see the island?

But now, we are at the Snowtropolis. One of the just 5 indoor ski halls in Germany!

There are also bavarian things!

An old cable car!

And now... the first snow of this season!

Hi from my day in Schipkau!
Today, we were at the football match.

SV Askania Schipkau vs. Wacker Ströbitz-Cottbus

Schipkau, as penultimate, and Ströbitz, as 3rd.

Schipkau needs Points for keeping stay in the Landesliga Süd, and Ströbitz needs Points for staying on the top!

We came in the second half time, standing: 2:1 for Schipkau!
Big surprise!

Very exciting!

The last minutes!

Next week, Schipkau drives to Erkner, the last in the liga!
Tomorrow, we go perhaps in the nature!

Posted Dec 4, 2011, 10:44 pm
Hi from sunday!
Today, we gone in the nature, to a viewpoint.

It's on the place of the old settlement "Vogelberg". But, the Vogelberg had to go, caused the open-cast mining!

We are at the right way!

Little break, before we are at the viewpoint!

Arrived at the viewpoint, I get an entry at the visiters-book! Cool!  B)

I can see my host's house! The red arrow marks it!


There is a second viewpoint, next to the other. Now, I can see the Lausitzring! In the next days, I can visit it! Look at the arrow!

Next to the Eurospeedway, I can see the crane for the biggest wind turbine of the world!

And I can see the other side of Schipkau.

Now, we are on the way back home!

Time for nice pictures!

I can also climb on trees!

But... How can I go back?


After coming back to earth, I see a wind turbine next to me!

Can you see it? It's just a little part of the biggest wind turbine park in europe!

Like in Italy!


The red cross marks the position of our day event!

Tomorrow, I go to Finsterwalde, the work town of my host. After work, we go to one of the largest building in the WORLD! A big record!
I'm so excited!

Posted Dec 5, 2011, 9:55 pm
Hi from Monday!
After work, we went to  a very big building / machine!

It's a Overburden conveyor bridge (Abraumförderbrücke). It was used in the open-cast mining.

ATTENTION!!!!: It's the biggest / largest building or machine, who can move itself, in the WORLD!!!!

It's great??  :o

It has a length of over 500 metres, much more than the Eiffel-tower has height!

Sorry, it's not easy to get the whole bridge on one picture!

Look also on the beautiful evening sky!

It is the whole?

Nice view!

Say goodbye to this giant of steel!

Tomorrow, I go to school!

Posted Dec 9, 2011, 10:20 pm

Playing hide!

Enjoy the view to the lake of the SeeCampus in Schwarzheide!

Tomorrow, I go to a handball match and perhaps some other points.
Perhaps on Sunday, I go to the Luasitzring.
