Neringa, Lithuania - 8th July 2012

By: coraline

Me and Finfin with our host mum and her family are going to Nida. Great! We woke up very early in the morning and after 3 hours we were in Klaipėda. We went to Neringa with a ferry and we saw many birds flying with us!


We decided to go to The Sea Museum. But first, we took a picture near Curonian Lagoon!


It's me next to the ship "Dubingiai":


After 2 km of walking we finally reached it! Lithuanian Sea Museum, here I come!


Funny penguins :D


And here you can see on the right side curonian lagoon and on the left side - Baltic sea!


It's something like a bridge that separates the sea and the curonian lagoon:


The Baltic sea, great! So big and... wet! :D


Look, mummy, what a big ship I found!


And this is a picture inside the old wooden house - museum:


Well, it's time to go. Next stop - Juodkrantė!

Neringa, Lithuania - 9th July 2012

By: coraline

Hi there!
Our jorney continues and after the Sea Museum, we stopped to see one of the largest grey heron and cormorant colonies in Europe - The Hill of Herons. It's a bit scary to be there!


Finally we arrived at Nida! Our flat is really cosy, but we decided not to sit at home and to go for a walk in the evening. The Curonian Sea (Lagoon) is very nice :)


There are many beautiful weathercocks in Nida:


Near the yacht:


Nida has it's own star gallery with hand prints of famous lithuanian singers, actors and others. Here we are near the very famous person in Lithuania Vytautas Kernagis hand print:


Birdies came to take a picture!


Wow, Nida looks so great! It's a small town, but I understand why this place has long been an attraction for tourists and artists.

Neringa, Lithuania - 11th July 2012

By: coraline

Today it was raining, but in the evening the weather was nice again and we went out for a walk.
We saw a beautiful Parnidis dune!


We also stopped to see the Sundial - Calendar. It's sad that in 1999 hurricane "Anatoly" tore down part of the solar clock, but it still looks interesting!


And this is the calendar - I'm in the summer part!


Other dunes. If you take a closer look, you can see a part of Russia - Kaliningrad Oblast is bordered with Lithuania!


On the beach...


And here is Nida lighthouse. It's very big and beautiful, we could see it when we were at the beach!  :D


Watching the sunset:


I'm really going to miss this place when we leave :(

Our last day in Nida was very cool - we ate a delicious cake named "Juodkrantė" and drank warm milk:


We also stopped at Preila to buy some fish and it was time to go. Our last stop was to say goodbye to the Baltic Sea:


Bye bye, Neringa! It was great to see such an amazing and beautiful place. Maybe one day I'll come back here :)

Vilnius, Lithuania - 15th July 2012

By: coraline

It's really sad when you have to say goodbye to a friend. Finfin is leaving tomorrow and I already miss her! I gave this cute ladybird a big hug and I wish her all the best on her way to Switzerland!


The weather forecast says that it's going to be a rainy week. Well, maybe we'll find some work to do! :)

Miss you, mummy,

Vilnius, Lithuania - 22nd July 2012

By: coraline

A new toy voyager has arrived - it's Emma Squirrel! And I also became friends with new Karolina's traveler Leila:


Karolina said that it's time to go and see Vilnius! We stopped here, next to the fountain:


And this is the Town Hall! Isn't it beautiful?


Here I am near the Barbora Radvilaitė statue. She was Queen of Poland and Grand Duchess of Lithuania as consort to Sigismund II Augustus:


Look! I'm posing in front of one part of the Vilnius University - it is the oldest university in the Baltic states and one of the oldest in Eastern Europe. It is also the largest university in Lithuania:


The Presidential Palace is located in Vilnius Old Town, in 1997 this place became the official seat of the President of Lithuania:


Here is the very famous Cathedral of Vilnius (Vilniaus Šv. Stanislovo ir Šv. Vladislovo arkikatedra bazilika). It's the main Roman Catholic Cathedral of Lithuania. You can also see the Bell Tower! :)


That was a great day and I met two new friends! Too bad that my journey in here ends soon...

Vilnius, Lithuania - 27th July 2012

By: coraline

Hello, mummy!
First of all, I'm so sorry that I couldn't upload new pictures within this week - Karolina was really busy, so we didn't have much chances to go and see something. But we spent a really good time at home!

Soap bubbles are so much fun! :D


And look how many nice postcards Karolina has received from Belarus and Italy! I hope that one day I'll travel there:


We wanted to choose a place where to go next for Emma Squirrel, as she is a new voyager here (in Vilnius). Our host mum gave us a map of the city and we had a really hard time thinking what would be the best place to go next week. But we did it, we chose it! Shh, it's a secret...


A day with a movie is even better -we saw "Tangled". It was such a great story!


And then Karolina decided to take us for a walk outside, near the house. Another friend came with us - it's Karolina's rabbit, named Mr. Rabbit :) He's so adorable:


Well, that's all for now. It's really hot outside, so I'm almost melting here. But I guess it's the real summer, right?

Vilnius, Lithuania - 1st August 2012

By: coraline

Today is my last day in Vilnius and it's really hard to say goodbye to my friends Emma Squirrel and Leila and my host mum Karolina. Thank you all for such a great hosting and being nice to me! I loved Vilnius and other places like Riga, Latvia and Nida. But it's time to go...
Next stop - GERMANY! Leila is also going to Germany, so we all made a big hug to Emma, she stays in Vilnius.




It's time to go... Bye, everyone!! I hope the journey won't be that long!

Heidelberg, Germany - 7th August 2012

By: nuriayasmin

Dear Mum

it was quite a fast journey. I've safely arrived in Heidelberg. First I was greeted by Coco Presley who lives here. She welcomed me very warmly.


Then she called the other TV's who are currently living here: Gypsy, Brinda and Yetta Bear.


Well, and then a great surprise: Another dog! And not even any dog. No, it's Gaspode. We have the same mentor and I hadn't expect to see him before my return to Wales. He was also very cheerful.


Happy greetings,
Zed Dog

Dear Mum

Today we all said good-bye to Bambi who's taking part in a Round Robin and will go to the USA first. Later on, he will visit you, too.


Then Yetta Bear and I accompanied nuriayasmin to the post-office and I saw a bit of the suburb.






Keep finel

Host's Home, Germany - 10th November 2012

By: WingedWolf

Hello mommy,

I arrived safely in Bavaria, Germany today *___*



After I crawled out of my envelope I was greeted warmly by Tsukumo. She's a really lovely sheep.


For breakfast we had cookies. Each of us got a heart and we shared the round one. So delicious! ♥


I can't wait to see what will happen tomorrow! :>
Love you,
Zed Dog

Munich, Germany - 11th November 2012

By: WingedWolf

Mommmmmmmmyyyy ,

wow, today was such a busy and exhausting day but I had so much fun!! Host-mum and 4 of her friends went to Munich to see the Japanese band "An Cafe" perform live! *___* As the place in her bag was really limited she only took me with her and Tsukumo had to stay at home.  :( She wasn't too sad though because we promised we would buy her a souvenir :)

Here you can see me in the car on our way to Weiden where the train station is.


When we were waiting for the train it started to rain ...




After a 3 hour journey we finally arrived in Munich and got to the "Meininger City Hostel"  to get ready for the concert in the evening.



Host-mum didn't take a jacket or umbrella with her because the sky had cleared again earlier and it didn't look like rain... well, while we were standing in front of the concert hall waiting to be let in it started raining cats and dogs. Phewww ... luckily she kept me in her bag and I stayed dry but she and her friends looked like drowned rats before the gig even started ._. ~ 8°C outside temperature didn't really help. Nevertheless we had the most amazing time with the band ever!! ♥

I'm sure you can imagine that we all were extremely exhausted by the time we got back to the hotel (11 pm). Host-mum said her back and feet hurt quite bad but since she carried me around all the time I still felt great. Our voices were gone because of all the screaming and I had a slight ringing in my ears but the next morning it was all better. A warm and comfy bed and a few hours of sleep was all that
was needed.



A three hour train ride back home ....




... and a happy Tsukumo as soon as we gave her the present we bough at the concert. A band shirt with all the members on it and a bag. Do you like the shirt? I think it looks awesome  :D



Hope your day was great, too!
Miss you,
Zed Dog ♥

Mantel, Germany - 20th November 2012

By: WingedWolf

Hi Mummy,

As I said in my last post, host-mum wanted to show me 'Mantel' today. It's not a big city but it's beautiful.


This stone can be found near the marketplace. I like that the sun was shining even though it's already the end of November.



This is the Protestant church. There's a Catholic church, too but it's further afar.


Here's host-mum's favorite house in Mantel. No one is living there anymore and as you can see it's quite old and dilapidated. They want to tear it down soon which is really sad as host-mum loves old buildings a lot ♥


Here you can see one of the two butcheries. The owner is very friendly and you always get something for free, too (:


This is the last of originally 11 ovens they used back then to bake bred. It was built in 1809 and then restored in 1870 and 1977.







Have a nice day,
Zed Dog
