B.Homburg+Frankfurt, Germany - 7th December 2012

By: Susie's

Servus Mama,

yesterday we were christmas shopping. In the afternoon we went to Bad Homburg and in the evening to Frankfurt.
In Bad Homburg we were inside for a little while and when we came back out everything was covered in snow.  :D

Susie's wasen't to lucky with buying presents for her family and friends but she treated herself with a small gift.  ;)

Küsschen

Lancel

PS I even got to take a picture with Brad Pitt.  ;)

Lichtensteig, Switzerland - 11th December 2012

By: Jasper

Hello mum,
after a short, pleasant trip I arrived today healthy and happy in Switzerland.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC110993-1.jpg

My envelope was opened and I climbed out carefully.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC110994.jpg

A large group of TV's greeted me warmly.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC110995.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC110999.jpg

Suddenly, I saw a familiar face.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC110998.jpg

Nils, my friend from Finland is still here. I showed all my presents.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC110996.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC110997.jpg

When I had welcomed all, I had to say goodbye again. Mr. Wilson is leaving today and will continue on to Germany, where he spent Christmas. So we hugged again

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC111000.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC111001.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC111005.jpg

and wished Mr. Wilson a safe journey.
See you soon, mum
your Lancel

on a walk, Switzerland - 12th December 2012

By: Jasper

Hello mum and all the loved ones at home,

Wonderful winter weather.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC121087.jpg

As host mum came home from work, she grabbed us immediately into her bag and off we went.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC121011.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC121012.jpg

We walked up a forest path.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC121021.jpg

The sun was shining through the trees.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC121090.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC121025.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC121041.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC121042.jpg

So much snow.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC121088.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC121031.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC121060.jpg

Above we saw pristine snow.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC121061.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC121071.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC121078.jpg

We had a wonderful view.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC121086.jpg

I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Hello mommy,
today was my turn to open a door at the Advent calendar.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC161105_zpsdc02c9bb.jpg

The chocolate was yummy.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC161106_zpscdd087d6.jpg


Host mum found an old slide.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC131097.jpg

Just right for three snow rabbits.
Hugs and kisses

at work with host mum, Switzerland - 20th December 2012

By: Jasper

Hello dear mum.
Today I was able to accompany host mum to work. She is responsible for inventory management and shipping to a company for hotel and kitchen supplies. First I visited her office.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC171127_zps45a633ea.jpg

It is not ready set up, they moved just two weeks ago. Then I looked at the warehouse.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC171136_zps14c5745c.jpg

Thousands of kitchen towels, tablecloths, napkins, aprons and more.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC171139_zpsc81c2c4c.jpg

Even here was Santa Claus.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC171140_zpsa286aa68.jpg

It was great to see what host mum does when she is not at home.
Love you mum

Lichtensteig, Switzerland - 26th December 2012

By: Jasper

Hi mommy and all the loved ones at home,

I had a very merry Christmas. On Christmas Eve we have decorated the Christmas tree with host dad.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC241148_zps71cbd19c.jpg

Sorry if some pictures are blurred. We laughed so much as host dad fought with the fairy lights.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC241164_zps4837a754.jpg

The Christmas tree looks wonderful.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC251192_zps7c45bc29.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC251194_zpsa2fa807a.jpg

Then came the big moment.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC251195_zps62d4d463.jpg

Everybody got his gift.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC251216_zpsf630608b.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC251217_zpsb98dcc0f.jpg

I got a sweater and a shield.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC251218_zpsbb817f9f.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC251219_zps5db7bc0a.jpg

Now I look almost like a knight.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC251220_zps354b5989.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC251230_zpsb86a285e.jpg

in the kitchen, Switzerland - 30th December 2012

By: Jasper

Hello mum,
since Christmas storms and rains every day. No chance to go out. That's why I worked on one of my life missons and baked a cake. An apple cake with almonds. I had a lot to do. Weigh flour, cut butter into small pieces,

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC291246_zps2bb0337f.jpg

add brown sugar.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC291247_zps2d8483e0.jpg

Host mum has kneaded the dough.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC291248_zps5e710ab4.jpg

My furry paws are not so good for that. While the dough chilled, I prepared the cake pan.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC291249_zpsc7155bb0.jpg

Then I cored apples and cut into small pieces and mixed with lemon juice and cinnamon.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC291250_zps64f6f51b.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC291251_zps0f23175d.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC291252_zps3404d921.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC291253_zpsa34e5437.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC291254_zps7332075d.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC291255_zps9c61eea6.jpg

I melted butter and brown sugar

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC291256_zps82d08f6e.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC291257_zps43d9d49c.jpg

and added almonds.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC291260_zps4493d911.jpg

Then I rolled out the dough and put it into the mold.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC291258_zps9dfa69ff.jpg

Fill with apples,

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC291259_zpsc2fbfbfb.jpg

almonds,

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC291261_zps0ba72cb1.jpg

and slide it into the oven. And then, wait, wait, wait. Wait about an hour. It was worth it.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC291262_zpsc601c0d2.jpg

See for yourself.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC301263_zps7d2acab0.jpg

To eat the cake is easier than to bake him. I will enjoy it.

See you soon mum,
your Lancel

By: Jasper

Happy New Year

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1011321_zps3a626dde.jpg

mum, I wish you and all the loved ones at home a happy and healthy new year. After a great dinner, we watched a bit of television

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC311273_zps63a49e66.jpg

to sell us the time. Then host brotherhas ignited table fireworks.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1011278_zpsa2b72b99.jpg

We had great fun with all the funny things.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1011279_zps2e7b489b.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1011281_zpsca09229d.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1011282_zps959fb117.jpg

Later we listened to the church bells and welcomed the New Year with champagne. Then we watched the fireworks.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1011312_zps42296a55.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1011316_zps28dcd803.jpg

As our host family went to sleep, we have emptied the remaining bottles. May be this was a little much for some of us

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/PC311277_zpsd7e1267c.jpg

but we had a great party. And the party will go on, we have in fact two birthday kids. But that's another story.

Love you all

Säntis, Switzerland - 6th January 2013

By: Jasper

Hello back home
after three weeks of rain (host mother can not remember such a terrible winter) we were finally able to back outside. No sun but dry. We all wanted to play in the snow. And for snow we had up high, very high. Sledding on Schwägalp was funny.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1061357_zps9240098e.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1061358_zps55104442.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1061359_zpsaddf3b3f.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1061360_zps150fd1e5.jpg

Then host mum had the idea of ​​visiting the Santis.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1061365_zps7cab0f0a.jpg

So we took the cable car and were on our way to Säntis peak.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1061370_zpsb4108548.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1061426_zps705d3cbe.jpg

At the top station we admired an exhibition of various museums around.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1061372_zps64894f2a.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1061373_zps6fec9a30.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1061391_zps3c28f9f8.jpg

Then we reached the summit. It was so cold and windy. Everything was frozen.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1061431_zps07869a12.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1061401_zpsc196b183.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1061432_zps717abdd0.jpg

This is the weather station.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1061402_zps3ebcb850.jpg

And that's the big TV antenna.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1061411_zps74833ed8.jpg

On our way back we even saw the sun.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1061433_zps80e2d93e.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1061441_zpsc0c49cff.jpg

It was a wonderful day.

Basel, Switzerland - 13th January 2013

By: Jasper

Hello mommy
Yesterday morning we had to get up very early. At 7 clock we sat on the train.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1121569_zps6398115a.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1121558_zps34fb377f.jpg

Our first stop was Zurich. There, we had just enough time to photograph the station

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1121471_zpsdfa09cd8.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1121468_zpsb8404098.jpg

and to find out where the journey takes. We will travel to Basel. Basel is one of the oldest cities in Switzerland, located on the River Rhine. The city, near the border with Germany and France is known for its chemical industry. After our arrival in Basel,

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1121473_zps2ff056e6.jpg

we saw only a few steps from the train station Strasbourg Monument

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1121484_zps6e25b086.jpg

and the Bank for International Settlements.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1121485_zpsea23adff.jpg

Our route took us to Elisabeth church

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1121502_zps250c4a30.jpg

next to the Theatre. We had a short break at the Tinguely fountain.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1121504_zpsa3c05b48.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1121505_zps4fa7e53b.jpg

This fountain, called Fasnacht Fountain was a gift of a great food discounter to the city of Basel.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1121506_zpsaa423b41.jpg

Then we saw the Basel Cathedral,

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1121507_zps99c36409.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1121508_zps37c34a59.jpg

located on the cathedral hill high above the Rhine. We had a magnificent view of the river and part of the city.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1121512_zps6fda21da.jpg

The skyscrapers that you see in the center of the image, is the fair tower.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1121516_zps5fc4ccfc.jpg

Through narrow streets
http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1121520_zps8b2b4ae6.jpg

we found our way to the river Rhine. We crossed the "Middle Bridge"

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1121522_zps4818329e.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1121523_zps65e2a1aa.jpg

and could see the old town from the other side.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1121530_zpsb5b921cc.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1121531_zps0288b258.jpg

On our way back we saw the red city hall.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1121540_zpsdb65a4d7.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1121542_zpsc34d48dc.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1121549_zps66fcee1d.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/P1121553_zpsac43f94a.jpg

It was built in 1504-1514. After these many impressions we were exhausted and slept through the journey home. I hope you like Basel as much as I.
Greetings, Lancel

host mum's home, Switzerland - 18th January 2013

By: Jasper

Hello mum,
Troot left us today. He traveled further to new adventures in another part of Switzerland. We had a small farewell party with cupcakes.

Host dad had secretly eaten a TV Muffin, therefore Troot had to eat a big one.

Then he packed his things and slipped into the envelope. We all wished him a good trip

and checked that everything was in order.

After his departure, some of us also grabbed the wanderlust. We have told a long time from our travels.
Love you mum, bye bye.

Lancel

Hi mommy,
because the weather at the moment is not really good, we had freezing rain and it was dangerously slippery, I'm doing a language course.

I had a choice of four languages ​​are spoken here in Switzerland. I chose Romansh.

Now I have crossed a bridge, and learned to say castle and knight in Romansh.
I work hard at my life missons.
miss you mum, Lancel
