Vienna, Austria - 12th September 2008

By: ChristinaB

Not far from all these chestnuts we saw a strange building. Our host explained us that it was the planetarium where people can watch stars inside. This sounds really interesting, but unfortunately it was closed. It didn't matter - we also were fascinated by the huge globe next to it!

Vienna, Austria - 16th September 2008

By: ChristinaB

Yesterday we went to see the house created by Friedensreich Hundertwasser. It looks really beautiful and I like it alot! There is nothing special in this house, just normal flats (next time I come to Vienna I'll try to find a host living in there  ). Everybody living there has the right to decorate the surrounding of his/her window just as he/she likes - but only as far as the arms reach. Interesting, isn't it?

Eindhoven, The Netherlands - 11th October 2008

By: inkie1010

Hello all!! Here I am again! The first week here was pretty busy for my host, she has just a new job, but for me it was a nice time to relax a bit, play computergames, spending time with the cat Shewa and reading some of the fantasy books. Because my host has a lot of those!

Yesterday it was my hosts birthday! So there was a little party to celebrate the birthday! I loved the cheese with the dutch flags in it :) Actually I ate almost everything of it :)

Everyone wanted me to sit on their lap for a while and also everyone wanted to see my passport!

Here are some pictures of the party:
Me with some of the presents :) Two friends have been to America and brought some souvenirs from Philadelphia!

Here I am in front of some of the people who attended the party!

Aaah! I love Dutch cheese!

This evening we went to see the light festival in the city of Eindhoven! There is a route of 25 kilometers in the city with lights in the streets. It is to celebrate the end of World War II (Eindhoven was freed 18th September 1944). So there are lights in the city for one month.

I loved the lights, but it was difficult to take good pictures. Here are a 2 pictures of me in front of a windmill :)

Eindhoven, The Netherlands - 19th October 2008

By: inkie1010

Hello! Here I am again!

Today we planned a tour through Eindhoven, we went on my hosts bike :) We first wanted to visit the Philips Park. The famous electronics brand Philips was founded in Eindhoven around 1900, so there is a lot Philips in Eindhoven.

The idea was to first visit the park, go on to the former Philips factories, the Evoluon and the city centre. But unfortunately when we were done walking in the park my hosts bike had a flat tyre... So we had to walk all the way back.. We will visit the other places another time this week when the bike is fixed! But here are the pictures from the park!

Me at the entrance of the park!

Me and the mushrooms = "paddenstoelen" in Dutch

And even more mushrooms

:) Nice place to sit a while and look around

A close up of me on a forest-path in the park :)

Together with my host :)

In the park there is also a nice cafe! We had some hot choclate yummy!!

Of course they had also Dutch beer Grolsch :)

The cafe behind me :)

Greetings from Little Tex :)

Eindhoven, The Netherlands - 23rd October 2008

By: inkie1010

Hello! Here is a little update from me!

This is me with my new friend Shewa, we like to hang out on the couch in the sun! :)


My host likes to play the guitar! Here is me on one of her 2 guitars :) This one I like the most, it has a bit country-sound :)
But my host mostly plays Tommy Emmanuel songs on it!


And I just loooove the Dutch peanut butter, but how do I open the jar.... Grrrr!!


Tonight my host will take me to the music-school for a guitar-ensemble lesson! I hope we can take pictures there!
Also this weekend we planning to do some more sightseeing in the city centre!

All the best! Houdoe! ( i learned some Dutch dialect here, Houdoe means Bye bye but they only say it in the south of the Netherlands!)

I am back from the guitar-ensemble at the music school! It was nice to hear some guitar music! Next week they have to perform in front of an audience, and I think I will go to the concert too!

Here I am in the practice room :)

There is also a small cafe in the music school:

I was very thirsty afterwards so my host bought me some coca cola :D


I am very tired now and going to sleep! ByeBye!!

Veldhoven, The Netherlands - 16th November 2008

By: inkie1010

Hello!! A new message from me :)
Today I went on a little trip to the city of Veldhoven, just south of Eindhoven where I am staying.
We went to the Papegaaienpark which is a park/centre where there are a lot of parrots and other birds who are rescued / lost / found etc. It's great to see that they can live happy in the park. The park has also some other animals like deer, maki's, lama's, pinguins, guinea pigs, horses.

First we drove by car to Veldhoven! Here are some pics from me in the car!

This picture is taken in Eindhoven, not far from the city centre
The high building you see on the left is one of the buildings of the Technical University.

The signs show parts of Eindhoven. Catharina is one of the hospitals. But we dont have to turn right :)

A bit further on the same road.

On the right you see one of the bigger churches in Eindhoven. This is the Petrus-church.

Its not that clear on the picture, but you see a clock in the upper left corner. It is the Philips clock on the building the dutch people call "Klokgebouw" (it means clock-building). It was one of the factories of Philips. The electronics brand Philips was founded in Eindhoven in the early 1900's. And here we pass the former Philips factories!

Another former Philips factory building!

And again a building which has to do something with Philips! This strange UFO-shaped building is used as a conference centre by Philips!
It is called "Evoluon".

And a bit closer :)

Here we drive in Veldhoven!


On our way to the Papegaaienpark in the Dutch countryside :)

Woohoo!! We have arrived at the Papegaaienpark!!! :)

hihi these little animals are fast!

One of the many parrots

:D Sniff sniff :D I made a new friend in the park!

There were also lots of ducks!

And these white storks are called "ooievaar" in dutch!

This is Bambi! He walked all the way through the park together with us! I think he really liked me!

The park had also a big indoor tropical forest. This is me in a banana tree!



That turtle was very hungry!


I had a lot of fun at the Papegaaienpark! I am really tired now! So I am going to sleep :)

ByeBye! Little Tex
