Travelog for: Galen

London, England - 8th April 2007

By: Deborah

Galen enjoyed exploring the great outdoors but he was also very interested in peeking through people’s windows. There was one house in particular that he came to watch every day. Many small animals lived there and their lives seemed very exciting.

One day Galen was spotted after his quick getaway was foiled when he was impaled in a painful place by the climbing rose he was swinging on. A bear with a very flat bottom and strange dungarees invited him in for tea. He was very generous with the fresh fruit but seemed a bit twitchy about sharing his big chocolate egg.

London, England - 9th April 2007

By: Deborah

Travel Ted had told Galen all about Toy Voyaging and Galen thought it would be very fine to visit foreign countries and have big adventures. He wanted to get in practice right away so he went to explore the River Thames. While taking in the sites of Tower Bridge and HMS Belfast, Canary Wharf and the Millenium Dome, he thought about all the exciting journeys that had begun on the banks of the Thames.

Norwich, England - 13th April 2007

By: Deborah

Galen’s Toy Voyager training continued as he made his first long-distance trip to Norwich, where a rendezvous had been arranged with another highly experienced Voyager. He thought the train was a very civilised way to travel – much quicker and easier than swinging from tree to tree.

Wroxham, England - 14th April 2007

By: Deborah

Travel guru Ivor took Galen and Travel Ted on a super outing to Wroxham in the Norfolk Broads, where he imparted some tips on the importance of health, safety, and wearing pants.

London, England - 30th April 2007

By: Deborah

Galen had placed an advert on the message forum in the hope of finding exciting places to stay. Already he had two offers to visit Bruchsal and Munich in Germany, which was very pleasing.

He wasn't quite sure where Germany was so Travel Ted showed him a guidebook. Travel Ted hadn't been to Bruchsal but he did visit Munich once. He advised Galen to try go to the Deutsches Museum as there were lots of interesting things to see, including a working model of a brick factory which was especially good!

London Zoo, England - 6th May 2007

By: Deborah

Galen visited London Zoo in the hope of finding out what kind of monkey he was. When the monkeys saw him they laughed because he had no tail and said that he wasn't a proper monkey at all, unless he was some kind of inbred mutant. This hurt Galen's feelings a great deal and caused him to cry his eyes out behind the reptile house when he thought no one was looking. Luckily some of the other animals were much nicer, but none of them could tell him what kind of creature he is.

London, England - 9th May 2007

By: Deborah

All Galen's friends gathered round to wish him luck on his big journey to Germany. He hoped that it wouldn't take too long in case his bladder let him down.

München, Germany - 16th July 2007

By: Pandamao

The trip was very short, just a few days .... so I did not have to squeeze too long into that little parcel. And wow - so many toyvoyagers to welcome me in Munich!

Stockhom, Sweden - 23rd July 2007

By: Pandamao

On Monday our host took us on a business trip. As she could not get group travel rates (we were 10 including Pandamao) we had to squeeze hard into the suitcase. Luckily no broken seams or bones!

Later in the evening we went for a walk in the city center. There is lots of water ..... also from above, it was raining all evening. But we still managed to see from far the Kungliga Slottet (Royal Castle), Gamla Stan (Old City) and walked to Skeppsholmen Island where a lot of museums are located. The strange creatures in the photo must belong to the Modern Art Museum! We walked for quite a while until it was getting dark.

Stockholm, Sweden - 23rd July 2007

By: Pandamao

When it was dark we took the T-Bane back to the hotel. The Kungsträdgarden station is extra-ordinary, just look at the painted ceiling.
Finally we all went to bed after a long day.

Stockholm, Sweden - 24th July 2007

By: Pandamao

Today the weather was much better so we all went out for a stroll in Gamla Stan (Old City). We saw the Royal Castle, walked through the small streets and enjoyed ourselves a lot.

Warsaw, Poland - 25th July 2007

By: Pandamao

Who says business trips are fun? After a long day in the office (we waited crammed into the trolley again) we took off to Warsaw. When we finally arrived in the hotel we immediately fell asleep.

Just before the flight back to Munich we had a few minutes to rush through Warsaw's old city center.

Schloss Nymphenburg, München, Germany - 12th August 2007

By: Pandamao

After long days of rain it finally was sunny again. So we went out to see Nymphenburg Castle, a summer residence with a large park. Today lots of people use it for a walk or jogging, and there are always a lot of tourists.
