Derneburg, Germany - 23rd February 2013

By: HoBi

Hello mum,

the winter is back. It snows all day long. Nevertheless we took a walk.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Derneburg%20Feb%202013/IMG_4538_zpse2b06558.jpg

There is a big castle in Derneburg.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Derneburg%20Feb%202013/IMG_4528_zps9c3a4541.jpg

In the forest was a small teahouse.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Derneburg%20Feb%202013/IMG_4532_zpse70edf0a.jpg

So many stairs and so much snow – puh…

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Derneburg%20Feb%202013/IMG_4537_zps588f16bc.jpg

Unbelievable – there exists a pyramid in the forest inside of Germany.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Derneburg%20Feb%202013/IMG_4535_zps4573e539.jpg

It is the grave of the former owner of the castle.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Derneburg%20Feb%202013/IMG_4534_zps76997d97.jpg

There were small houses of fishermen next to many small ponds.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Derneburg%20Feb%202013/IMG_4541_zps72554e1c.jpg

It didn’t look like one – but this was one of the fish ponds.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Derneburg%20Feb%202013/IMG_4551_zps0644948b.jpg

I liked this house.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Derneburg%20Feb%202013/IMG_4545_zps9dd0a459.jpg

This region is really beautiful.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Derneburg%20Feb%202013/IMG_4559_zps1f916de9.jpg

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Derneburg%20Feb%202013/IMG_4554_zpsaf1aba55.jpg

Here you can see how far I walked through the snow.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Derneburg%20Feb%202013/IMG_4527_zps634b60c8.jpg

At home we searched a warm place, because we had to get dry again.

Where is the spring time?

Greetings

Bodenstein, Germany - 2nd March 2013

By: HoBi

Hello mum,

Eventually we had sunshine! We drove to the Bodensteiner cliffs and wanted to search the spring. We found a little of it.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Maerz%202013/IMG_4594_zps55cc99af.jpg

There was still a lot of snow in the forest. During the summer you see water coming out here.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Maerz%202013/IMG_4569_zpsb095dcd4.jpg

These cliffs were beautiful, weren’t they?

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Maerz%202013/IMG_4580_zpsc47f6c54.jpg

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Maerz%202013/IMG_4572_zpsa9d02d98.jpg

We saw a lot of holes in the cliffs. Where are they for?

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Maerz%202013/IMG_4575_zpsc32832ab.jpg

I absolutely wanted to have one more photo with the cliffs.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Maerz%202013/IMG_4585_zps72246683.jpg

On the way back we walked along this small river.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Maerz%202013/IMG_4586_zps7af37988.jpg

The river flows into this lake. We searched a beautiful place and enjoyed the sunshine.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Maerz%202013/IMG_4567_zps49ff2a2a.jpg

I don’t like the snow anymore. Hopefully it will be warmer soon.

Until soon

Alfeld, Germany - 9th March 2013

By: HoBi

Hello mum,

today I visited Alfeld - a small city in Lower Saxony.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Alfeld%20Feb%202013/IMG_4475_zps5859d822.jpg

This old tower is totally covered. How will it look like in the summertime.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Alfeld%20Feb%202013/IMG_4482_zpsb39f3651.jpg

This sculpture is so funny!

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Alfeld%20Feb%202013/IMG_4486_zps489f6246.jpg

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Alfeld%20Feb%202013/IMG_4487_zps2d1969d1.jpg

This beautiful house is at the market place.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Alfeld%20Feb%202013/IMG_4491_zpsf71e39e9.jpg

Under the market place a little river is flowing.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Alfeld%20Feb%202013/IMG_4493_zps4c89a707.jpg

This house I liked most.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Alfeld%20Feb%202013/IMG_4494_zps9180e6f0.jpg

The ‚heilige Franziskus‘ and the big bell stood next to the church.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Alfeld%20Feb%202013/IMG_4500_zps7bbec9eb.jpg

Alfeld is a beautiful small town.

Until soon

Winzenburg, Germany - 17th March 2013

By: HoBi

Hello mum,

today we went to a holy spring. Many people take water from it. It should help against sicknesses.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Winzenburg%20Feb%202013/IMG_4518_zps05269a6e.jpg

This was the main spring.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Winzenburg%20Feb%202013/IMG_4515_zpsc183446b.jpg

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Winzenburg%20Feb%202013/IMG_4516_zps14c53557.jpg

The water was so bright!

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Winzenburg%20Feb%202013/IMG_4506_zps97e08f6f.jpg

Here you see 2 other springs – coming directly out of the hill.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Winzenburg%20Feb%202013/IMG_4510_zpsb27be7ba.jpg

There was a small altar next to the spring. People sacrifices things here, and hope that the spring never stops.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Winzenburg%20Feb%202013/IMG_4513_zps8c5a5084.jpg

The water from the spring feed this river.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Winzenburg%20Feb%202013/IMG_4526_zpsf63866a6.jpg

Hopefully it will be warmer soon, because we want to search mushrooms.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Feb%202013/Winzenburg%20Feb%202013/IMG_4524_zps742e91ac.jpg

Bad Salzdetfurth, Germany - 24th March 2013

By: HoBi

Hello mum,

it is so frustrating. I don’t want to leave the house. There is snow everywhere. I don’t want to see snow anymore!

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Maerz%202013/Schellbrunnen/IMG_4597_zps6f5c8177.jpg

Where are the orchids? Where are the morels?

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Maerz%202013/Schellbrunnen/IMG_4598_zps96854603.jpg

Look here! No bear’s garlic! Only snow!

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Maerz%202013/Schellbrunnen/IMG_4600_zps3919d8a6.jpg

OK – at least this small spring has a beautiful story.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Maerz%202013/Schellbrunnen/IMG_4603_zps9a258c3f.jpg

There should be a small church in the past. One night all bells rang at midnight and the church sank. The next day there was this lake at this place.
We really thought about the truth of this story for a long time. But who knows it?

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Maerz%202013/Schellbrunnen/IMG_4606_zps3c740cea.jpg

Well – I will go back home now. And I won’t come out of the house before the winter is over and the snow is away!

Until then

Dottie Mouse

Bad Salzdetfurth, Germany - 31st March 2013

By: HoBi

Hello mum,

today it is Easter. Murph wanted to go with us into the forest, where the Easter bunny lives. But look – snow everywhere.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Maerz%202013/Ostern%202013/IMG_4614_zps5735dd25.jpg

What should we do? Will the Easter bunny put the eggs into the snow?

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Maerz%202013/Ostern%202013/IMG_4669_zps7780f47c.jpg

We decided to ask Bine, what to do? But look what we found at the door!

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Maerz%202013/Ostern%202013/IMG_4670_zps5ebc7928.jpg

There were baskets – and they were empty.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Maerz%202013/Ostern%202013/IMG_4672_zps2827203a.jpg

Maybe we can find Easter eggs here? Let’s have a look. Keep your fingers crossed. Wow – an Easter egg.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Maerz%202013/Ostern%202013/IMG_4674_zps1146c556.jpg

We found the first eggs. There should be more!

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Maerz%202013/Ostern%202013/IMG_4676_zpsf15eac34.jpg

Sofia called!

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Maerz%202013/Ostern%202013/IMG_4686_zps0a54ffae.jpg

Wow, our baskets were almost full.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Maerz%202013/Ostern%202013/IMG_4698_zps60791161.jpg

Uiii! What a nice smell!!!

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Maerz%202013/Ostern%202013/IMG_4701_zps344091b8.jpg

So many Eastereggs!

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Maerz%202013/Ostern%202013/IMG_4704_zpsdfe2e85e.jpg

Murph called! He saw something bright. What will it be?

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Maerz%202013/Ostern%202013/IMG_4708_zps92d883d5.jpg

Sofia threw everything into our baskets.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20Maerz%202013/Ostern%202013/IMG_4712_zpsa3c19d4c.jpg

Duingen, Germany - 1st April 2013

By: HoBi

Hello mum,

there was still snow outside. I didn’t want to go out. But Bine told us that fresh air is good for our health. So I was back in the snow. Near to the parking lot I said hello to this snowman.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20April%202013/IMG_4747_zpse2707039.jpg

Can you see, how much snow we have?

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20April%202013/IMG_4720_zpscd9653cf.jpg

Okay, the lake was really beautiful.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20April%202013/IMG_4718_zps987afe95.jpg

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20April%202013/IMG_4725_zps4f4aa6b3.jpg

It is already frozen.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20April%202013/IMG_4727_zps155aa9f2.jpg

On the pier we took a short break.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20April%202013/IMG_4736_zps80148de5.jpg

There was snow on the ice!

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20April%202013/IMG_4740_zpsbf4dfbbe.jpg

We still found Easter eggs. But the chocolate eggs were much better!

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20April%202013/IMG_4743_zps3c0eca97.jpg

Actually they still exist!

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20April%202013/IMG_4733_zps50b4dbb6.jpg

Many greetings

Salzgitter, Germany - 7th April 2013

By: HoBi

Hello mum,

Finally we saw the sun again. In the forest there was still snow. So we didn’t want to go there. We went to a big lake.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20April%202013/Salzgitter%20April%202013/IMG_4755_zps0a8025c5.jpg

There were some people with water skis on it. Can you see the man behind me?

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20April%202013/Salzgitter%20April%202013/IMG_4751_zps747ebc91.jpg

During our walk around the lake we saw this small pyramid.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20April%202013/Salzgitter%20April%202013/IMG_4762_zps7f5a3d50.jpg

On the other side there was a big sandy beach. I wanted to go there!

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20April%202013/Salzgitter%20April%202013/IMG_4760_zps2ba68cae.jpg

Eventually we found flowers. Weren’t they beautiful?

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20April%202013/Salzgitter%20April%202013/IMG_4767_zps97037ca6.jpg

What will this be?

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20April%202013/Salzgitter%20April%202013/IMG_4764_zpsa4d3a1cc.jpg

What a wonderful beach – in the middle of Lower Saxony. Unfortunately it was too cold to take a sunbath here.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20April%202013/Salzgitter%20April%202013/IMG_4769_zpscc753237.jpg

But we took a longer rest here.  Coltsfoot at the beach – cool.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20April%202013/Salzgitter%20April%202013/IMG_4774_zps0f434aba.jpg

Finally it is spring. Soon we will go into the forest and find mushrooms!

Until soon

Bad Salzdetfurth, Germany - 14th April 2013

By: HoBi

Hello mum,

Finally the spring started! Last weekend there was snow in the forest. And today we found many flowers. This was amazing! But look: spring snowflakes.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20April%202013/Fruehling%202013/IMG_4783_zpsa99aebee.jpg

kidneywort

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20April%202013/Fruehling%202013/IMG_4788_zpsa9aa461a.jpg

The orchids didn't bloom yet.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20April%202013/Fruehling%202013/IMG_4782_zps8ff2fd28.jpg

What a beautiful cave in this tree.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20April%202013/Fruehling%202013/IMG_4796_zps7582bb31.jpg

Another flower: daphne mezereum

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20April%202013/Fruehling%202013/IMG_4791_zps83be1acc.jpg

And so many kidneyworts.  We urgently wanted to have a photo.

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20April%202013/Fruehling%202013/IMG_4799_zps1b501bb9.jpg

We even found the first mushrooms.

Oh no! What an awful view. Murph was so angry. He hates these machines. They are monsters!

They destroy the whole forest.

At home we said goodbye to Josie. We wished her a safe journey home.

Bad Salzdetfurth, Germany - 21st April 2013

By: HoBi

Hello mum,


Certainly we went into the forest again. First of all we visited the elfcups. Do you remember the beautiful red mushrooms? They were really big now.

There were flowers everywhere – all were blooming! Great!

Beautiful cowslips.

Lesser celandine everywhere.

It looked so great!

There was another spring flower :  the hollowroot – birthwort. You can see the reason for our walk on the photo, too.  ;)

We wanted to collect bear’s garlic. What a wonderful view – bear's garlic – as far as you can see.

We took our basket.

Where should we start?

http://i1201.photobucket.com/albums/bb347/HoBi666/BadSe%20April%202013/Baerlauch%20April%202013/IMG_4856_zps299e1239.jpg

Here!

Murph cut the bear's garlic and put it into the basket.

Our basket was full.

This is the bear's garlic paradise!!!

It was time to say goodbye to the others. I had a great time here, but now I wanted to travel on.

Ronkonkoma, New York, USA - 6th May 2013

By: Grandma

Hi Mum,
I arrived safely at my new destination. As soon as I crawled out of my envelope, I was greeted by Fido, Lamikins and Teddy. They were very excited to see me. I am the first Toy Voyager to visit with my host family. I got a tour of the house and the yard. Fido and I climbed the dogwood tree. Dogwoods are his favorite. It is sunny and warm here, and the spring trees are all in bloom.
Love,
Dottie Mouse

Oakdale, New York, USA, USA - 7th May 2013

By: Grandma

Dear Mum,
I hope you are not worried, since I didn't post any news for a while. I've been having some adventures with my host family's toys. So here are the pictures. The first ones are showing my trip to Dowling College on May 7. I went with my new friend Fido, and tasted the cheese empanadas and some brownies. Fido liked the meat filled ones. The students are raising money for their club. The little flags are from countries where the students are from. I asked if they had a flag for Germany, but they didn't. I will post more pictures later today.

Ronkonkoma, New York, USA - 27th May 2013

By: Grandma

Dear Mum,
Today I played Scrabble with my friends. They are Fido (the dog), Painter Bear, and Eduardo. Painter bear is many colors. Eduardo has a necktie. As you can see, I had a great word to put on the board! But I don't know what to do with the other two letters I have left.
I hope everyone is fine at home. I miss you.
Love,
Dottie Mouse

Ronkonkoma, New York, USA - 27th May 2013

By: Grandma

Dear Mum,
It is so much fun to cuddle with these big toys! The biggest is "Obama Bear." He is named after the President of the USA. I took my sweater off, since it is quite warm here. Fido thought my sweater would fit on his foot for a sock! He's very silly. You can see me looking at the paintings in my host's house, and looking out of the window at the neighborhood. We will take a walk later.

Lake Ronkonkoma, New York, USA - 29th May 2013

By: Grandma

Today my host took me for a walk. We went to the lake, about 1/4 mile from Grandma's house. It is a kettle lake, which means a lake that was formed by a large chunk of ice from the last glacier. A glacier formed all of Long Island about 20,000 years ago. The Ronkonkoma moraine is the highest spot, located in the middle of the island. Long Island is very long, about 118 miles (190 km), but only about 23 miles wide (37 km).

I don't feel like I'm on an island. I don't see the water around it. This area is very suburban, with many houses and yards on quiet streets. Grandma lives at the end of a narrow lane. First we walk to the end. We pass a playground, and we take a look at the poison ivy that is growing along the lane. Then we turn towards the lake, and walk on a sidewalk. Here we see more cars. We are walking downhill.

Finally we get to the lake. The lake is 0.65 miles (1.05 km) across. There is a dock with some people fishing. This is a freshwater lake, and it is stocked with bass. Some children are swimming, and there are some others sunbathing. We walked to the geese but they left when we came near. I am quacking at the baby geese (goslings) but they don't hear me!
