Oranienbaum, Germany - 7th June 2012

By: MA_17

Today I visited the area around a castle near my home. We saw the castle from outside and went to its gardens. The Gardens had its origin in the 17th century, when the marriage of Leopold's great-grandfather Prince John George II of Anhalt-Dessau to the Dutch princess Henriette Catharina, in 1659 brought a team of engineers and architects from the Low Countries to lay out the town, the palace and a Baroque garden in the former settlement of Nischwitz, which was renamed Oranienbaum in 1673. The Dutch influence remained prevalent in the Principality of Anhalt-Dessau for many decades. Oranienbaum Palace was finished in 1683 as the summer residence of Henriette Catharina, where she retired after the death of her husband in 1693. From 1780 on Duke Leopold III had the palace and the park rebuilt in a Chinese style with several arch bridges, a tea house and a pagoda. In 1811, the orangery was built, with 175 m (574 ft) in length one of the largest in Europe, which still serves to protect a wide collection of citrus plants. Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, Princess of Orange-Nassau, opened a new gallery this year.


And there are lots of palm trees in the park.

We found a nice wagon where we could relax a little bit.

Then also found a lovely nostalgic bridge. It looks really special!

Look, the Chinese pagoda is so beautiful when the sun is shining.

We also visited the Chinese tea house. Can you see us?

home, Germany - 23rd June 2012

By: MA_17

We did a road trip by car. :rolleyes:

We stopped to have a look at these beautiful purple flowers. I really like them.

Then we drove to the vegetable field to check out when it is time to harvest. Hmm, I think we have to wait a few more days.

We stopped again near some flowers and took one into our car. Isn't it beautiful?

Then we drove and drove and drove... until we arrived on a sunny place.

We decided to do a picnic. Alex put lots of stuff to eat and drink into the trunk. Brilliant kitty!

We enjoyed our picnic! We all got some lemonade and fruits. The mice got some cheese. We also had chicken, sausages and cake. Alex decided to drink milk instead of lemonade. ;) It was so delicious!

When we all were full we put the leftovers back into the trunk and drove home. We used a fast street, of course! :cyclops:

Berlin, Germany - 24th June 2012

By: MA_17

Today I walked through my home city.

Here you can see the Haus der Kulturen der Welt ("House of the Cultures of the World" ). It is Germany's national centre for contemporary non-European art. It presents art exhibitions, theater and dance performances, concerts, author readings, films and academic conferences on non-European Visual Art and culture. This building is a gift from the United States, designed in 1957. John F. Kennedy spoke here during his June 1963 visit to West Berlin. To Berliners it is also known as the Schwangere Auster ("pregnant oyster" ).

This is the Bismarck Memorial. It is a prominent memorial statue dedicated to Prince Otto von Bismarck, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Prussia and the first Chancellor of the German Empire.

in the garden, Germany - 30th June 2012

By: MA_17

Today the weather was wonderful! Lots of sun!
So I decided to enjoy the day with relaxing in the garden.  :rolleyes:

On my way to the garden I saw lots of daysies! I was a little bit hungry.

I found some other lovely flowers in the garden. Aren't they beautiful? Btw: I love lilies!  :)

The flowers smelled so delicious! So I searched for something to eat. It was really easy to find something.
First I ate a whole head of lettuce. Please don't tell my Mom, because I think it was the last one. B)

Then I found some berries. Some were light red, some dark red. I didn't know what kind of berries this could be. First I tried a light one. It was really sour. Then I took the darker one. It was so delicious! At home I asked my Mom about these berries. She told me it is called Tayberry. Never heard of this before, but it was worth it to taste! :cyclops:

I'm going to meet my first host the upcoming week. I'm so excited!  :D

Miniwelt, Lichtenstein, Germany - 6th July 2012

By: Yosemite

Hello, Mummy!

Today my first journey without you started! I was so excited! Hostmum said we will go to a special place. Hmmm, what will this be?!?!

We visited the Miniwelt, where a lot of famous buildings were built in scale 1:25. I got an impression of a few of my life missions  B) 3 in one day

But at first a wonderful castle near my hometown, Castle Sanssouci in Potsdam. I just tourned around and were in Paris!

Wow, just one moment later I was in India at Taj Mahal. What a wonderful building! I was completely fascinated!

I changed to the british island to Stonehenge.

To get completely crazy I got a jetlag and landed in Australia at the opera of Sydney!  B)

Russia must be wonderful, too! I visited the Basilius cathedral in Moscow!

Like all world tourists do, I had to go on, soon! We entered the Capitol in Washington and Cheerio hissed the flagg of the USA ;)

And last but not least: Chichen Itza, but not in Mexico, but in Saxony  :D

I hope I will see all these sights in real!

Greetings and kisses to you!

Lichtenfels, Bavaria, Germany - 16th July 2012

By: Yosemite

Hello Mummy!

Today I got my first Yoga lesson in my life!

Bierle, a resident plushy was our teacher. He said before you can do Yoga you have to meditate. After a short ooooooooooooom we started with the "dog". I managed it quite good, only sometimes I jiggled to the side  :rolleyes: Next position was the "Cobra". No, not dangerous, Mummy! It is just a position where you must put the head into neck and breath deeply. And I did! I am a very good breather!
After we finished we relaxed some minutes.

Oh, what a good feeling!

Have you ever seen so happy plushies?

Love and peace, Peaches

Coburg, Germany - 26th July 2012

By: Yosemite

Hey Mummy!

Peaches here! Today we accompanied hostmum to Coburg, a nice little city with a lot of history and interesting old buildings.
We passed a wonderful Jugendstil villa, I wanted to be photograhped in front of it. On the jutty of another house (the city house) I saw a lot of animal heads, ans guess what, there was even a sheep head!
The first evidence that the Coburg people are crazy I found in a garden, there was a sewing machine in the grass! Maybe the will grow until autumn??? :rolleyes:

Look at the smalles street I´ve ever seen, certainly in Coburg B)

The yellow building was one more crazy. It was a public swimming pool and built 1900!!!! So much culture! We were sooooooooooooo hungry! Hostmum odered a coffee and a chocolate muffin- But she was a little bit slowly. She only git the water  :D

Great day in Coburg!

Love you and kiss to Berlin!

Wuerzburg, Germany - 9th August 2012

By: Yosemite

Hello Mummy!

Today we accompanied hostmum to Wuerzburg. While she was at the doctors we explored the city. We looked at the residence and visited its garden. Suddenly I saw a lion and got frightened. Thankfully the brave Wavy Gravy accompanied me and tested the lion. Only made from stone. Puuuuuuuuuuuuuuhhhhhhhhhhhhhh :rolleyes:

Then the sun came out and we rested in the sun in front of a pretty flower bed.

It was a exciting day!

Many greetings to Berlin!
