Travelog for: Roots Bear

Leidschendam, The Netherlands - 18th September 2008

By: Charda

Today yet another ToyVoyager arrived! His name is Henry the Adventure Hound. He has already met Roots Bear and HitchaRideDooey before, so it was nice for him to meet them again here.

Tonight we watched an online video of Prinsjesdag. It's a Dutch tradition where the queen tells the government and everyone in the country what the policy will be in the next year. First she travels in this golden carriage.

And this is the Queen of the Netherlands: Queen Beatrix.

The Hague, The Netherlands - 21st September 2008

By: Charda

Last Friday a new tv arrived, called Beatritsche!
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/IMG_2384.jpg
Today we accompanied our host to her work. She wasn't able to take any pictures there, so we just sat inside her bag and listened to the security people who were guarding the bag while our host was working. After just a few hours our host came back, fetched the bag from the security people and went outside. She then took us for a small walk through The Hague. Here I am in front of the Buitenhof. This is where the government convenes and where they take all the big decisions.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/DSC00201.jpg
Here I am in front of a statue of Johan van Oldenbarnevelt. He was a Dutch stateman in the 16th century.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/DSC00212.jpg

http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/DSC00213.jpg

This sofa was made of mosaic tiles for an art project in the city. It wasn't really comfortable, but it was pretty.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/DSC00215.jpg
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/DSC00216.jpg
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/DSC00217.jpg

This is the other side of the Buitenhof. The little tower in the middle of the picture is where the prime minister resides.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/DSC00223.jpg

Here's another Dutch statue called 'Kleine Jantje'.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/DSC00224.jpg

This is the skyline of The Hague. The building on the left is the railway station, the central station of The Hague.

And to top it off: here's me with a Dutch lamppost.

Leidschendam, The Netherlands - 4th October 2008

By: Charda

Today we received a box by mail from Germany! Our host has participated in the Random Acts Part 2 challenge. This is what she received:

And look at these pretty flowers she also received today:

Leiden, The Netherlands - 13th October 2008

By: Charda

Today our host brought us along to Leiden where her university is. And because the weather was really nice today, we got to see something of the city. Here I am in front of a statue of Rembrandt, a famous painter who was born in this city.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/DSC00243.jpg
There's lots of water everywhere here in the Netherlands:
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/DSC00249.jpg
And of course, a Dutch windmill.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/DSC00250.jpg
More water, but also a very pretty sight.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/DSC00257.jpg
Here's another statue of the painter Rembrandt.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/DSC00263.jpg
And this is one of his paintings, mounted on the wall behind me.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/DSC00266.jpg
And finally, some more water and Dutch trees.

Leidschendam, The Netherlands - 15th October 2008

By: Charda

Today Synapse, Hoppity and Resi and Chipper left us. We wished them all the best and hope to meet them again some day!
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/IMG_2409.jpg
We were sad to see them leaving, but then the doorbell rang and two new TVs arrived! Count and Ambrosius!

Leidschendam, The Netherlands - 26th October 2008

By: Charda

This morning we had a really nice breakfast with fresh croissants. We baked them off ourselves and it smelled delicious!
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/IMG_2428.jpg
Look at the picture of the windmills on the cheese package. That looks pretty Dutch, right :)

This is Charlie, Jay's cat! :) He's really cute. I sat with him while he had a wash! :)

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3296/3030290030_35e3511975.jpg?v=0

I got a bit sleepy! :) Cats spend so much time cleaning...

We played around in the box of fruit that Jay gets delivered every week! :) Fruit is fun for bears of our size... We can roll around! :)

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3053/3029464379_831c6d8d28.jpg?v=0

Charlie doesn't like the taste of us! That's a good thing I think :) He should just stick to cleaning himself!

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3196/3029465609_2d33da4edd.jpg?v=0

Sadly, Cloudy is now in a mailing bag waiting to go to Brazil! I will miss her! But there is Jay and Charlie and lots of other toys to keep me company during my stay in England!
