Jyväskylä, Finland - 12th June 2012

By: mmm105

Hello all!

My name is Kurnau. I'm a small cat. I'm living in Finland with my mommy mmm105.

I'm a "stay at home" toy. I won't go travelling without my mommy. But I would like to invite you all to visit our home, to see my hometown Jyväskylä, and to spend (hopefully) great time with me. I would like to get all of you to be my guests.

I try to enjoy my life as a ToyVoyager, and especially as a ToyVoyager host. I like to meet and get to know other ToyVoyagers, and maybe help some of them for completing life missions. That would be so much fun!

Welcome to follow my story!

:) Kurnau  :)

Hei! Hello!

To get to know me better, I show you some things, what I like to do a lot.

Well, I like all things, what cats normally like.
I like sleeping.
I like also stretching (the more different stretching positions, the better).
I also like thinking, and watching what others are doing.
...and many more things, too...

:) Kurnau  :)

I met all ToyVoyagers, who are visiting here right now.

They introduced themselves. They are
(back) Telie from Luxembourg, Ronja from Germany, TobiHH from Germany, PinkLady from The Netherlands, Erol the Pirat from Germany,
(front) B.o.B. from Germany, Wayne from Germany, Mo from Poland, BarryO from USA and Kit-Kat from Germany.

When we have tolked to each other and already got to know better, we went to outside. There I plowed some magical bubbles.

They were soap bubbles!

Viherlandia, Jyväskylä, Finland - 17th June 2012

By: mmm105


I went to visit in place called Viherlandia today. It's a place, where are selling lots of different flowers and other plants, and other things needed in gardening. There's also a cafe.

I went to this place, because there was a postcrossing meeting there. But first, I saw something really great: two living parrots, Kalle and Torsti!

Here is me and the other parrot.



After meeting parrots, we went to cafe. And because I was very hungry, I ate a panini. It was so good, that others came to eat it, too...



And for dessert, I ate a piece of cheese cake. Yummy!  :p


Then I took part in a postcrossing meeting. And guess what?!? There I met two new ToyVoyagers: A teddybear and a horse (they were with another Finnish host Delenna there). :)

Here are we all:



Postcrossers are so crazy, they allways write so MANY postcards!!!


After the postcrossing meeting, I went to look around. I wanted to see, what kind of place it is.

I found many nice things there.




We were riding a bike there!!! Yippee!!!  B)




And we saw the flowers were riding a bikes, too!!!  :o  :o
hih  ;)



I met some gnomes, too. They were very funny!  :D


The next picture is the last (but not least) photo today.

Some hearts for you all!  <3


I had a nice day! :)

:) Kurnau  :)

It’s juhannusaatto (Midsummer’s Eve) today. I saw something really exited thing: juhannuskokko (a Midsummer bonfire)! It was so cool.

Here are some info about Midsummer celebrations in Finland:

"In the Finnish midsummer celebration rituals include bonfires, cookouts, a sauna and spending time together. Bonfires are very common and are burnt at lakesides and by the sea. In folk magic, midsummer is a very potent night and the time for many small rituals, mostly for young maidens seeking suitors and fertility. An important feature of the midsummer in Finland is the white night and the midnight sun. Because of Finland's location spanning around the Arctic Circle the nights near the midsummer day are short or non-existent (in Lappland there’s several days when sun doesn’t set at all). This gives a great contrast to the darkness of the winter time."

All these photos have been taken just 1-2 hours before midnight, and there is still not dark at all!!!

I visited in the local trainstation, and I saw a very old train there.
They don't use it anymore to travel, but it's a nice statue/decoration in the trainstation.

All my guests are leaving tomorrow. They will go to visit Spain with my mommy mmm105 for about one week.

I will stay at home, because someone has to stay, just in case, if any toy will come here between those days.

I helped packing things. And I said 'bye bye' to them.

:) Kurnau :)

An envelope arrived today. We all were so curious, what would be inside of it. I opened it, and others were looking.


We were sooooo curious! A secret envelope from China...


Oooooh, it's another ToyVoyager! It's Totoro:) from China! :)


It's great to have more friends! Welcome to Finland!  :D


Later today I showed the local library building to all.

Here I am with Totoro.

I helped others to find some nice books. :) There wasn't any books about Totoros, but we found many other interesting books.  :D There's some:

Sheeps for Lina and Honeymooners

Bears for BarryO and Ronja

Cincerbreadmen for Wayne

Seals for TobiHH

Cats for Kit-Kat and me

Today I was showing some public art works to all my guests. :)
It started raining soon, so we had to come back inside quite soon.
But all art were great!

This one is "Karhu" ("A Bear"). The artist's name is Oskari Raja-aho, and the statue has made in the year 1930.
Look, we all are riding on the bear!  ;)

This one is called as "Elämän koulu - vastuu, luottamus, luovuus"
In English it might be something like "A school of life - responsibility, trust, creativity"

And there's a statue "Kauppias ja apulainen" ("A Merchant and his assistant). The artist is Pauli Koskinen, and it has made in 1959.

:) Kurnau :)
