Poeldijk, Netherlands - 21st March 2008

By: Lejow

Is this what they call SPRING here in the Netherlands?
The only thing I see is rain, rain, rain, more rain, hailstones, rain, again hailstones .. and the wind is blowing SO hard!!
I want the sun to shine so we can do cool stuff!

Fortunate Lejows dad celebrated his birthday yesterday, so we bought a nice cake!

To make it look a little bit like spring, lejow has put down some spring things at home and at her work.
This is a table, with all kinds of spring-things. The children can see this way, what spring is al about!


Look a nice flower! Its a 'Narcis'!

But it is getting dark so early, so we burn candles to make it cosy!

Hugs and Kisses

By: Lejow

Hello again!!
As its been such a BAAADD weather this Easter, and Lejow stayed at her boyfriend these days. Bene and I decided to make his home UNSAFE!!!
We had a lot of fun!

Looking outside.. waiting for the sun (or maybe some snow or hail!)

Yeahh there it is!



Lejows boyfriend has a lot of pets..
fishy fishy

1 kitty

2 kitty!!

Can you find us in these pictures?


The evening of First Easterday (Here in Holland we have two Easterdays!!) we go eat fondue.
That is when you put a little piece of meat on a stick wich you put in a pan with hot oil!!
It is very nice and you can eat a lot of stuff with it, salades, paprika, tomatoes, pickels, union, bread and sooo on!
I had my own stick to!



It was yummie!
I hope the weather is getting better, because Lejow wants to take me to see some glas warehouses. Thats were they grow the plants, flowers and vegetables in over here!!
Lejow is living in 'het Westland' its the biggest warehouse region in the Netherlands!
But more about that when we have some pictures!!

Hugs and a paw
Chompers and Lejow

Poeldijk, Netherlands - 29th March 2008

By: Lejow

FINALLY!! the sun is shining!! We immediatly went outside!
As I told you before, the place where Lejow lives (het Westland) is famous in Holland, it is called the Glas City, because a lot of things (like vegetables, flowers and plants) grow here in glas warehouses!
Because of the weather thats almost always bad here, it can't grow outside. In the glas warehouses, it's always hot and there are special lamps to help everything grow!


Here are two kinds of them!

We also went to see the Church of Poeldijk, unfortunately it was closed.
So I made beautiful pictures at the outside  :p
Do you see the nice sun!




The churchtower used to be the highest point of the Westland, untill the started to build windmills here!!!

Lejow is living in a flat, on the 4th floor. The view is marvolous!!!!!
Do you see the church again?


Hugs and Kisses!
Chompers and Lejow

Poeldijk, Netherlands - 9th April 2008

By: Lejow


We had such an exciting evening yesterday.. and it even went on today..
Lejow is going to school in the evenings to become a teacher.. Yesterday she had an important exam to make.
It started with a ENORMOUS traffic-jam. Lejow had never seen it SO busy on the way to her school.

After calling the school that she was coming to late, there came smoke out of Lejows car!!!
The heat of the engine was to high. She immediatly turned the car on the side of the road. Were 2 nice police man came to help her, to push her to a parking place.

From that place, Lejow runnnn to the train, to go to school anyway. Unfortunate she was 10 minutes late, and school didn't want to let her in anymore..
Lejow was soo angry! Now she has to write a letter to the Exam commission if she can make the test at another time..

Wel ok, that was that. But the car was still standige somewhere on a parking place and needed to come home.
So today we maked a big trip!

first we went by bus and train to come to the car
Waiting for the bus... look how nice the sun was shining!

the busstop, it says the time that the busses are ariving.
Dutch is a difficult language!

sitting in the bus..


Finally after a 50 minutes trip we arrived at the car. It was stil standing safe :D


But then we had to wait another 45 minutes for a man of tha ANWB to come (thats a service where you can register in to, when youre car breaks down, they come and visit you for free and try to repair it. If that is not an option the bring you and the car to the nearest garage!)
The man was very kind
his car!

He made an temporarly fix to Lejows car. So we can drive home. Back home again, Lejow brought her car to her own garage.. Now it is waiting when its fixed!
The garage said that the switch to turn the aerator is broken, lucky that costs not to much :D

Now we are going to sleep we are tiiired!

Today was full of surprises
First there came a big envelope to Lejows house.. She made it open and.. Meleleuca came out!!

Next, Lejow told us that we were going to Scheveningen! To the beach! Beacause it was such nice weather!
We saw so much
First we went in a souvenir shop:

Then she showed us the Kurhaus, it is one of the most beautifullest, biggest, nicest, expensive Hotels of the Netherlands, because it is right at the beach


We went on 'The pier' that is a long big thing you can walk on, that lays in the sea. So the view is marvolous!


And then.. that was so cool! At the end of the Pier, someone went Bungee Jumping!!
He jumped right when we are watching!

One of my last lovely days with Lejow, because this week I am going to the next host!

Remscheid, Germany - 23rd April 2008

By: olgamaus

Hallo Mummy,
I arrived in Remscheid today.

There were two other ToyVoyagers who helped me out of my envelope. They looked as if they came from a party. They told me that my new host's daughter is celebrating her 16th birthday today. Angus and Mooney even had a little present for her.




My host, Katja, told me that she has a new DSL-contract and it would start just today. Maybe there are two or three days without internet access, so she made my first update immediately.

It's really great to arrive at someone's birthday.

Remscheid, Germany - 23rd April 2008

Hi Mummy,
today we visited the fun fair. I still was a little bit tired from my journey but the music was so loud that I got wide awake.

Here you can buy fruits covered with chocolate.



Here you can see me standing in front of the haunted house. I was a little bit scared and I wanted to get away from this weird guy.


I liked the big wheel more, Angus also.


When we arrived back home  the birthday party had already started. I saw some nice girls and a few boys eating delicious soup and drinking beer. I prefered tasting the sparklng wine.


I must close now, I'm soooo tired.

Remscheid, Germany - 28th April 2008

By: olgamaus

Hi Mommy,
today it's my host's birthday. She is now fourty-something years old. In the morning she had to go to work and in the afternoon her family arrived for coffee and cake. They were her parents, her aunt, her sister with her son, her nephew and her own kids.

We all had cake. Katja made an applecake with amaretto and she bought a strawberry-torte. Too late she realised  that the torte was a really low-fat-thing. It tasted really like there was missing some cream. But the torte was eaten up either.

Later we opened a bottle of sparkling wine and the presents were opened. From her children she got a funny candle that looks like a glass of beer. It is a real beer glass with a jelly candle in it.

From her sister she got a nice heart made of metal to hang at the ceiling and to light a candle into it.

Here you can see us celebrating.



For dinner Katja ordered asian food. Everyone could choose what he liked among four different dishes. We had one completely vegetarian, one with baked fisch, one with beef and another with chicken. It was really delicious.




Later, when all guests were gone, we tided up the kitchen a little bit, but only a really little bit.

Remscheid, Germany - 30th April 2008

Hi Mommy,

my host told me that she is a member of Germany's biggest association for pet rat keepers. She is an active member who is working for the association's magazine. She also adopts pet rats that are given into an animal rescue or those who has been found when some irresponsible people released them into the wild or left them alone in the apartment when they  moved out like a thiefe in the night.

On Friday two young rat girls will arrive here that has been brought pregnant  into the animal rescue. One of has given birth to the babies on April, 20th and the other one on Katja's birthday. Katja told me that it is better for the rat babies to be raised within a family, so they can get used to be handled. In an animal rescue they have not enough time to handle the rats and to play with them. The rats are crepuscular animals, so they like playing and eating in the late evening. At his time  every animal rescue is closed.

Of course the rat moms need a cage for themselves. Katja has an extra cage for them, but is only has one little door. So it would not be easy to clean the cage and to handle the rats. She cut a larger hole into the grid and made a larger door of an old hamster cage. She also built in a larger door into the cage top.

We helped her .... ähhm.... we played with her tools.


Here you can see us sitting in the cage with the now large doors.


I'm curious to see the rat babies.

Remscheid, Germany - 1st May 2008

By: olgamaus

Hi Mommy,

today nobody has to go to work. We had a really late and really long breakfast.

First we baked some bread rolls.


Katja seems to like peanut butter. Moony had to keep me from pinching her bread roll with peanut butter.



But peanut butter was not enough. She put cheese and cherry jam on top of the peanut butter.
