Vilnius, Lithuania - 6th April 2012

By: coraline

Hello! My name is Virgo, I'm a little TV and now I'm staying with my mum for a while. I've heard that there is a biiiig world with a lot of wonderful countries and I can't wait to visit them! My mum says that there are even more continents and my dream is to visit each of them (and eat honey of course) :)

I really hope that many TV's will come here, in Lithuania, where I could show them my home and have a great time!

Vilnius, Lithuania - 9th April 2012

By: coraline

Happy Easter everyone! It's a sunny morning in Lithuania (too bad that  I can still see snow through my window...) and the second Easter day. As the first one is for family and second one is for friends and relatives, I'm very excited to visit my mum's grandmother's house and have a good time there.

Our eggs weren't very colorful, but they were delicious and strong!


And we also made some salads...




This is what I got for helping! Yummy!


With my friend Rabbit :)


I hope that the spring will finally come to Lithuania and after some days I'll see sun and green grass, not only snow. Bye for now!! :)

Vilnius, Lithuania - 14th April 2012

By: coraline

After Easter holidays, everybody got back to work. My mum went on studying and I had a lot of work to do, too. We both with other family members (my mum's mum, our rabbit) took care of plants yesterday. As we have a lot of beautiful flowers in our home, it took almost all day!


Seeing this happy cactus made my day! I finally feel the spirit of the spring :)


I also remembered that I don't have my ID card yet and that means that I can't travel safely. Me and my mum had a really good time making it for me. Want to see the result? It's LEGEN...wait for it...DARY! But still a secret  :rolleyes:


I was very tired after all of that fun I had today. My mum says that maybe soon I'll go to my first trip. Can't wait to visit that very mysterious country or other continent and have fun with the family which will host me. I think I'm going to dream about it now. Nighty night!  :p Virgo

Vilnius, Lithuania - 15th April 2012

By: coraline

Today I had a great time being outside. It was a sunny and warm day, so we went for a walk in the forest and saw there many violets. They're so pretty and cute!



Dreaming and feeling happy...  :rolleyes:


Make this evening special and spend it with your family.

Vilnius, Lithuania - 18th April 2012

By: coraline

Today I had an amazing day sewing some things for me and my soon-to-come guests.


Ding dong! Someone has just arrived! A little toy voyager showed his nose, when we opened the letter, and... tadaam! It was a guest from Germany, her name is Dottie Mouse and she's going to stay here for a while. Hooray! I gave this little mouse a big hug and showed her our house.


Then we had a great evening talking about our countries and other things. Dottie Mouse is such a great voyager! She has visited many many places and have a lot of things to tell. But after her journey she felt a bit sleepy, so we made our beds and said "good night" to each other. Good night to you too! Virgo

Vilnius, Lithuania - 22nd April 2012

By: coraline

Yesterday me, Kit-Kat and Dottie Mouse had a great time at Vilnius Lyceum. It was the beggining of "Art Week 2012" in this school and on Saturday all creative students came there to decorate the walls. We painted some birds and a funny cat.  :) After that, we went to the mall and then outside. It was a sunny day, so we had some fun in the grass :)


Then we all helped our mum to wash the car. That was a hard job!


Later that day my mum told me great news - I'm going to see the world! My first stop will be Germany and I can't wait to see the beauty of it!!  :D Of course, it was sad to leave my guests from Germany in Lithuania, but they told me that I will absolutely like it and that my mum will take care of them. We had a big family hug.


With my tiny journal and other things I was ready to go. Bye, Lithuania! Bye, mum! Virgo

Betweeen Lithuania and Germany, ? - 24th April 2012

By: coraline

Hey there!
So now I'm in a small box, going to my new host in Germany to see many wonderful places there. I'm missing Lithuania already and also my great friends there (Kit-Kat, Dottie Mouse), but I hope that they will see The Cathedral and Vilnius Old Town soon. And I hope to have fun in other country, maybe meet other TV's :)

Soon you'll hear more from me! Hugs,

Remscheid, Germany - 25th April 2012

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
I arrived in Germany today! Wow, what a fast trip :)

My first host Katja and some more ToyVoyagers gave me a warm welcome. My new friends are Herlinde the dragon, Schnatterchen the duckling, Tamina the rhino and Albus Star the dog. They all were delighted about the candies I brought with me :) Katja told me that she will stick the postcard sticker to her fridge.


It is rainy here, so we did not go out. Instead I had a look out of the kitchen window.


Later Katja had to hang out the laundry in the attic, I went with her and looked out of the roof lights.


Can you see the towers in the background of the next photo? One of them belongs to the city hall and the other one is a water tower.


Hopefully I will have a look around tomorrow.

Remscheid, Germany - 27th April 2012

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
today we were picked up by a friend to take a walk in a nearby forest and to do some shoppings later.

Although Remscheid is an idustrial city, it is surrounded by woodland areas, rural areas, valley and creeks. We went to a district in the West of the municipal area, close to a large woodland area.


Katja told me that Germany's highes railway bridge is connecting Remscheid with the neighbour city Solingen. You can see a small part of it on the following photo.


Due to the bad weather this week there are some creeks running across the hiking paths.


We reached an historic outlook pavilion, built in late 19th century.


The pavilion is situated high above the valley of the river Wupper, flowing in the valley between Remscheid and Solingen.


You have a fantastic view to Muengsten Bridge from here. Muengsten Bridge was built of steel, completed in 1907. It is about 480 m long and 107 m tall. There are extensive repair works going on in the last few years.


We followed our hiking path and found more creeks and waterfalls along the path.


We walked under the bridge.


Katja knows a secret hiking path which is going through the abutment of the bridge. You have a stunning view across the valley from this point.



Our path was leading through a rural area than ...


... and soon some houses came into sight. This farm has a garden full of fruit trees.


We went shopping than.

Bye for now

Remscheid, at home, Germany - 28th April 2012

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
my host is celebrating her birthday today. How old she is? I don't know ... she looks older than 35, so I'd better not ask :D

But this means, she is not virgo, but taurus.

Leichlingen, Germany - 29th April 2012

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,

we took a long walk today along the so called "Obstweg Leichlingen" (translated it must be something like "Route of Fruit"  :D ). Leichlingen is a small town, halfway between Remscheid and Cologne.. This path is following a route through traditional orchard meadows, along homesteads and through rural hamlets. It is about 9 km long.


We had to follow the apple trail marking.


You can find many information boards telling you facts about fruit, the landscape and so on.


Katja told me that we were a bit late, most of the apple trees were not blooming any more. Katja said two or three weeks ago the whole region must have been an sea of flowers.



You can also find those half-timbered houses here.


We walked along picturesque farms and houses.



We found those wooden pigs :)





We came back to the town than.


Everywhere farmers were working on the fields.


In the gardens we already found lots of flowers.





We also took a short walk in the city centre of Leichlingen.


This is river Wupper, which is already flowing under Muengsten Bridge. Not too far from here, about 9 km, it is flowing into river Rhine.



We had an ice cream and drove home afterwards.

Wuppertal, Germany - 1st May 2012

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,

today we went to Wuppertal, one of the neighbour cities. First we took a walk along the "Sambatrasse", a former, now closed railway track, rebuilt to a lane for pedestrians and cyclists. It is following the original track through the forest, meeting some interesting points. It is called "Samba"-Trasse because the trains were swaying on the winding track - like you were dancing Samba :)


Here is an historic train, it was used until the 1950's.


I did not find my home town on those signs.


Next stop was an open air pool which is heated by waste heat from the nearby incinerator. Can you see it shimmering through the trees? You can go swimming here the whole year. Katja told me that it was only covered when there were extremely low temperatures outside.


This is the incinerator.


We walked along allotment gardens, many gardens are decorated with memorabilia from the former railway track.


We found those giant wood stacks in the forest.



The lane is running next to the A 46 motorway for a while.


Than the most interesting part followed: The Sambatrasse is crossing the zoo. Can you see the lawn in the background? It's the tiger enclosure!


Unfortunately we did not see any tiger.

We reached the end of the Sambatrasse than.


We walked towards the city centre of Wuppertal than. We walked through the zoo quarter, a villa quarter with lots of interesting houses. Katja showed us a house which is painted all over with the loveliest animals.



Wuppertal is an old industrial city. Due to the river Wupper which is flowing through the city there were dye works and weaving mills since the middle ages. You can also find typical worker's housing areas.


One of the global leaders of pharmaceutical industry is situated in Wuppertal, Bayer AG.


Here you can see the main attraction of Wuppertal - the "Schwebebahn" (suspended monorail). It was established in 1901. The tracks are 8 m above the streets and 12 m above the Wupper River.


Here you can see one of 20 stations along the route.



A train was leaving the station ...


... and meeting another train from the opposite direction!


Here is another station, also a modern one.



We had a pizza in this restaurant. My host's daughter is working there as a cook.


Afterwards we went home, relaxing the rest of the day.

Remscheid, at home, Germany - 5th May 2012

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
today we bought food for the pets on the farmers market. My host is keeping three ferrets, they eat lots of meat, mostly poultry.

We bought stomachs, a neck  and hearts from turkey and chicken wings and necks.


Everything had to be hackled and packed into servings, than it was packed into the freezer.



Katja told me that the ferrets liked their food raw - yuck! But they are predators, so it ok for them.

Remscheid, Germany - 7th May 2012

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
unexpectedly the weather became much better in the afternoon, so we took a walk around the city. My current home is not too far from the city centre, here you can see the tower of the city hall in the background.


Only a few steps further the view was completey different: A large playground to my left and lovely old houses.


In the background you can see the outskirts of the neighbour city Wuppertal.


We  walked downhill to the district Hasten, one of the oldest districts of Remscheid. The "Route of Tools" is starting here, a former railway track which was built  to a lane for pedestrians and cyclists.  We will walk the whole lane another time, it is nearly 5 km long.


Unfortunately the photos do not really show how steep those lanes are!


This street is leading to the municipal park, also goint straight uphill.




A few minutes later we reached our home :)

Wassenberg, Germany - 10th May 2012

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
I visited a medieval festival today. It was taking place in Wassenberg, a small town in the Niederrhein area.

My current hosts, Katja's sister and family, were already well prepared for the festival.


Before we left, I had breakfast with some other teddy bears - lots of honey!


The bears taught me to say "bear" and "honey" in German.

bear = Bär
honey = Honig

This was quite easy :)

Katja's sister Ina decided that I also should get dressed for the rock concerts which would take place there.  Have a look at me :D


Looks sort of dangerous ...


This is the name of the family's most favourite band.


To stay awake the whole day I had a strong coffee. The mug is showing the logo of the festival.


Finally there!


I wanted to buy a harness, but we would have had problems to get it into the car.


The favourite band, Saltatio Mortis, was on stage than.




These two band members were so kind to take a photo with me :)




We were really hungry than and bought dough rolls filled with feta cheese.





I got a souvenir - a little bell :)


I'm wearing it now, so I hopefully will never get lost.
