at home, Remscheid, Germany - 3rd September 2009

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
can you imagine we did not have any coffee today in the morning? It was horrible - Katja did not know how to get awake.

When she finished work she immediately bought coffee. I was also in need of coffee.

Finally ...

... coffee and wafers with a nougat filling.

Hueckeswagen, Wupper dam, Germany - 5th September 2009

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
we took a walk today with Katja's parents. We went to Hueckeswagen, a small town in the "Oberbergisches Land". A lot of woodland and rural area belongs to the municipal area of Hueckeswagen. We parked the car in the middle of nowhere.

Almost nothing but green around :D

We continued our walk to Wupper dam. Here you can see the river in the valley.

The touch-me-not is a pretty flower, but it does not smell good.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2620/3892350884_4b61485406.jpg

This is a really pretty place.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2443/3891563019_9060a02a45.jpg

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3534/3891562957_59691356c9.jpg

We reached the dam than.

The next photo is a zoomed one, showing a nice part of the dam.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3437/3892407192_d3d7575bf4.jpg

We walked for about an hour. Here I saw an elder bush.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2595/3891563251_b9aa83095a.jpg

Dark clouds were coming.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2482/3892351336_89b7b1d4ca.jpg

On the surrounding meadings I saw a lot of cows and horses.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2479/3892351408_206e31ed76.jpg

Suddenly it started to rain, but only for a few minutes. Can you imagine what I saw next?

A wonderful rainbow!

travelling to, Northern Germany - 16th September 2009

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
I'm travelling to Nothern Germany with Katja's parents, to a small place called "Carolinensiel".

This small town is situated in the German state of Lower Saxony, close to the coastline.

I'll stay with Katja's parents for about two week. During this time I won't be able to update photos.

Schillig, Germany - 18th September 2009

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
as I told you I am on holidays in Lower Saxony. Katja's parents took me with them.

Today we visited a small town called Schillig. It is situated on the west coast of Jade Bay and is about 20 km north of the town of Wilhelmshaven.

Bensersiel, Germany - 21st September 2009

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
today we made a trip to the island Langeoog. We had to go there by ferry.

Here I am at Bensersiel, walting for the ferry. Quite boring, so I joked around to kill time.

Langeoog, Germany - 21st September 2009

By: olgamaus

We reached Langeoog than. Here we went to the beach. It's a really nice place, waiting for the ferry was definitely worth it.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3425/3995771128_eed5e9cecf.jpg

I found a playground on the beach and played with a travelling sheep whose owner is Katja's sister.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2435/3995770818_dac3ca415a.jpg

What is this?

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2519/3995009795_979cfbda76.jpg

Some salty stuff, I don't know what it's good for.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3458/3995009883_e877068eb6.jpg

I rested in the dune for a while.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2471/3995009983_01cc9d8469.jpg

Time for playing again!

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3469/3995010035_78c5df617b.jpg

Maybe I can  frighten somebody who wants to go the beach. This small boy wasn't scared at all! I'm afraid I got totally out of practice doing this.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2472/3995010121_b1961d7291.jpg

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2609/3995010193_9a3225441f.jpg

On this island usually cars are not allowed. Only the fire department and ambulance service have standard motorised vehicles. Policemen are doing their job with bicyles. Haha! As a tourist you have to use your feet - or you can take a ride with the Langeoog Train. We decided to do this after using our feet for hours.

Jever, Germany - 22nd September 2009

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
today we visited Jever. Jever is the capital of the district of Friesland in Lower Saxony. The most famous thing here is the Jever brewery. Katja's Dad told me that there would also be a castle, but I was sure a brewery is more interesting.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3426/3995010461_2ba81f3ed9.jpg

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3443/3995010617_6e71d39bf6.jpg

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2652/3995772002_a4dde7b9ae.jpg

I had a beer, or two, or three, or ...? I'm afraid I don't remember any more ...

Wangerooge, Germany - 23rd September 2009

By: olgamaus

Hi Mum,
today we made a trip to Wangerooge, one of 32 Frisian Islands in the North Sea.

Like on Langeoog cars are prohibited on the island.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2548/3995772190_a494e19de9.jpg

Because Katja's Dad likes lighthouses, we visited the old lighthouse which is not used any more.

Hooksiel, Germany - 25th September 2009

By: olgamaus

Hello Mum,
today we made a boat trip from Hooksiel to Wilhelmshaven. The weather was so bad that Katja's Dad did not take many photos, his camera might have drowned otherwise.

Once more I was waiting for the ferry.

Harlesiel, Germany - 29th September 2009

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
we visited Harlesiel today, a small town at the North Sea. We went to the harbour.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3430/3995772436_98a0fa1ba0.jpg

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2631/3995011173_87ddf05ac2.jpg

We went into town than. Here I saw some nice decorations.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3423/3995772748_93d06065df.jpg

A rusty anchor, for example.

Remscheid, Germany - 11th October 2009

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,

although the weather is bad, we took a walk today in the suburbs of Remscheid.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3500/4013400991_f9a6277509.jpg

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2545/4013399773_8720fdb766.jpg

We walked through a small hamlet called "Spelsberg".

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2618/4013401097_653e94a62b.jpg

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2549/4013401357_e90609d9e3.jpg

What a nice place! They are feeding birds here, that might be a good way for me to get my dinner  ;) (I love tomtits and sparrows for dinner).

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2460/4013401399_b588587e0c.jpg

It started to rain than, so I prefered to stay in Katja's bag.

Remscheid, Germany - 20th October 2009

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
in Katja's lunch break we took a walk in the city centre. The first photo was taken close to my current home.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2460/4032136248_898e602792_o.jpg

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2521/4039883749_857e4596b4_o.jpg

Here we are above alotment gardens, which are situated in the municipal park. In the background you can see the neighbour city, Wuppertal.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2582/4039883867_e0499978cf_o.jpg

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3069/4039883979_c3f712699d_o.jpg

There is even a small forrest in the middle of the city  :D

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2474/4040634416_40ddd21936_o.jpg

More pretty old houses ...

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3203/4039883463_73360a8205_o.jpg

We had to return to Katja's workplace than. What a pity, lying in the sun under those trees would have been much better ...

travelling to the, Foster Care Home - 6th November 2009

By: olgamaus

Hi  Mummy,
I haven't heard anything from you for a while, I hope everything is fine with you.

fam-united and olgamaus invited me although and showed me interesting things in Germany. Katja told me now that is a special home for TVs like me. Roo will go there and also Hueso, who arrived here today. He was sent by BlackCat, who hosted him for some time, His Mummy did not ask for him for months, so he also will go to Finland, to the Foster Care Home. I decided to go with the two of them.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2622/4080585180_85d82f915e_o.jpg

We said good-bye to Landroval, Hippoda and Murph and were off.

Christmas in Porvoo, Finland - 24th December 2009

By: FosterCareHome

It's Christmas Eve! The day Finns celebrate Christmas. I spent this Christmas with Alfonz, Gary Boldie, Leonard and Hueso. In the morning we had rice porridge (a tradition), for lunch/dinner we had traditional ham and casseroles (gratins) etc. In this link, you'll find some traditional Finnish Christmas recipes :)

Later in the evening Santa came for a visit! He brought us some gifts as well. We all got "stamp magnets"!
The rest of the night we ate some more - also and especially candy  :rolleyes: My host had got us a box of Finnish chocolate. We didn't leave much for the next day...  :)

Merry Christmas everyone! Iloista joulua!
