Glacier-Express, Switzerland - 6th June 2013

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

Surely you remember our trip in the Bernina-Express. Today we took another train – called Glacier Express.  Like the last time we read our little brochure.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0338.jpg

It looked interesting, too.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0339.jpg

It was a nice train.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0335.jpg

I like the mountains with snow on the top.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0315.jpg

We drove high again and saw a lot of snow.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0321.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0326.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0329.jpg

The landscape changed during our trip.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0341.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0344.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0347.jpg

It was great – we had our headphones and learnt interesting facts about Switzerland.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0352.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0354.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0355.jpg

We passed many small villages.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0357.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0358.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0362.jpg

This was a deep gorge.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0363.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0364.jpg

We had to use a rack railway, because it was so steep.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0365.jpg

We arrived in Zermatt in the late afternoon and hopefully will have a great time here.

Yours
Gozer

Gornergrat, Switzerland - 7th June 2013

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

We were in Zermatt – and had a room with a nice balcony. We sat in the sunshine and talked.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0366.jpg

What a wonderful view!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0368.jpg

First we thought about climbing up that hill – but it was time to relax.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0373.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0374.jpg

Later RikeH came and told us that we will drive with a nice train to a place called Gornergrat.

Good luck for me – I found a place next to the driver of the train.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0376.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0381.jpg

We went higher – and there was snow again.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0386.jpg

Then we were at Gornergrat – and saw the Matterhorn – maybe the most famous mountain of Switzerland.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0392.jpg

We all wanted to have a group photo in the snow.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0398.jpg

I wanted to have one more with snow AND the Matterhorn.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0403.jpg

There were other beautiful mountains next to it.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0406.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0407.jpg

This was the view to another direction – amazing!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0416.jpg

There was a small chapel on the mountain.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0422.jpg

I sat next to it.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0426.jpg

Look – this was the train – called Gornergratbahn.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0432.jpg

On our way back to Zermatt we all sat in the bag of RikeH and had a lot of fun together.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0435.jpg

But at the end I had to jump out of the bag – because I LOVE this mountain…

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0439.jpg

What a wonderful trip.

Yours
Gozer

Zermatt, Switzerland - 7th June 2013

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

When we came back from the Gornergrat, we took a walk through the village Zermatt.

We started in the old part. There were many old houses.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0447.jpg

Behind me you can see how they were built. The funny construction with stones and wood should help against mice.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0448.jpg

I met a Capricorn – normally they live in the mountains, but this one prefers living in the village.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0455.jpg

And we had fun with this group of marmots.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0458.jpg

This is the church of Zermatt.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0462.jpg

What a nice day!
Yours
Gozer

Kleines Matterhorn, Switzerland - 8th June 2013

By: RikeH

Hello friends,

It was time for another mountain. Today we took three cable cars and went onto the Kleine Matterhorn. The trip was really interesting.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0467.jpg

I had a great view back into the valley.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0473.jpg

Then we were on the Top of the mountain. Next to it was another nice mountain called Breithorn.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0476.jpg

I loved it here.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0482.jpg

Behind me you can see the Matterhorn again. We were happy to see it, because only one hour later it was behind the fog or the cloud.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0488.jpg

It was amazing to sit at this height.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0489.jpg

Look – I was about 3883 meters or 12739 feet above sea level.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0501.jpg

Before we went back to Zermatt we visited the glacier paradise A place where I learnt a lot about glaciers – and saw nice ice sculptures.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0503.jpg

The ice crystals were amazing.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0507.jpg

And this was one of the best moments of the holiday – I climbed the Matterhorn. Can you see me on the photo?

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0514.jpg

Love
Gozer

Vierwaldstättersee, Switzerland - 8th June 2013

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

After seeing so many mountains, it was time for a change. We drove to Luzern, a city next to the Vierwaldstättersee.

We jumped onto one ship and took a trip over the Lake.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0523.jpg

There were many mountains around – but I didn’t want to climb on one of it.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0526.jpg

I loved the views and the beautiful hotel there – it must have been a castle in the Past.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0533.jpg

The lake is so big – it has a big Island.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0536.jpg

We stopped at a lot of small villages.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0540.jpg

Look – another ship – there were a lot of ships on the lake.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0546.jpg

We stopped after 1,5 hours – and took another ship back to Luzern.  It was called Schwyz.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0550.jpg

On the way back I had great views again.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0555.jpg

It was a nice afternoon on the Vierwaldstättersee.

Yours
Gozer

Luzern, Switzerland - 10th June 2013

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

Today we explored Luzern. First I climbed up a hill and had a great view of the city.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0563.jpg

Behind me you can see the Vierwaldstättersee.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0569.jpg

I walked on the old wall and saw this wonderful tower.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0572.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0579.jpg

There were nice places with old houses in the city center.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0582.jpg

And this is the famous place of Luzern – the Kapellbrücke.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0587.jpg

Maybe this is a nicer view?

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0592.jpg

There were old paintings on the bridge.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0598.jpg

Look – a wonderful church.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0604.jpg

We went into it.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0610.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/CH_0615.jpg

I had a wonderful time in Bavaria and Switzerland – but now it is time to go back to Germany – and celebrate Dicker Kumpel’s birthday there.

Love
Gozer

Sülfeld, Germany - 14th June 2013

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

It was Dicker Kumpel’s birthday today. He got a blindfold.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0002.jpg

Then he was allowed to look. We all sat in front of and sang a birthday song for me.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0005.jpg

Look – Dicker Kumpel received a present from his friend Murph. All he need for a Candlelight Dinner with Kleine Fee. This was a great idea!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0023.jpg

Birthdays are nice!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0024.jpg

Then we had a party with coke, fruits and burgers.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0031.jpg

It was a wonderful birthday party!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0034.jpg

Hamburg, Germany - 21st June 2013

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

I went to Hamburg – this is a nice lake in the city called Alster.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0047.jpg

There was a big fountain on it.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0048.jpg

The town hall was really beautiful.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0051.jpg

This place is called Alsterarkaden.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0058.jpg

Then I went into a big mall –the Europapassage. Have a look at the arches.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0063.jpg

It was funny – I saw the arch from above, because I went to RikeH’s working place.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0071.jpg

On our way back home we stopped at another mall – the Levantehaus. Dicker Kumpel told us that there were nice sculptures of wild animals. And he was right.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0089.jpg

It was amazing. There was a bear!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0078.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0079.jpg

Back home I went into the garden – and found this wonderful blossom. Do you know what plant it is?

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0096.jpg

Hi Gozer,

Amazing pictures of Switzerland and great pictures of Hamburg, too! I want to go there some time. You're a lucky buy to see all those wonderful places and have such good TV friends!
Give Dicker Kumpel a birthday hug from me.
About the blossom... I think it might be an eggplant or a gourgette (is that the right word in English?)

Bye, Gozer!

Your mum, Emjay

Hamburg, Germany - 25th June 2013

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

Today we went to the Port of Hamburg. You can see so many ships there.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0106.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0107.jpg

This sailing ship is old and called Rickmer Rickmers.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0110.jpg

This is a monument from people from Vietnam.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0115.jpg

This is another old ship – there is a museum on it.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0120.jpg

Do you know this monument – it is called Elbphilharmonie.  It is really often in the news, because the building costs a lot more than planned.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0125.jpg

I loved the red ship – it is called Feuerschiff – and it is a restaurant now.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0132.jpg

It was a nice day here.

Travemünde, Germany - 30th June 2013

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

I am in the North of Germany – and love the music here – it is called Shanty. Today there was a Shanty-Choir-Meeting in Travemünde. So we went to Travemünde. There was a beautiful beacht.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0147.jpg

This Buddha was so funny.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0146.jpg

Then it was time for the music.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0151.jpg

I knew many of the songs – and sang with the choirs.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0158.jpg

Look – I saw a big ferry.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0179.jpg

And a wooden sailing ship.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0164.jpg

But this is the famous ship here in Travemünde – it is called Passat.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0171.jpg

There was a big ferry wheel – but it started to rain, so we didn’t took a ride on it.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0172.jpg

Although it was raining we all loved these beautiful flowers.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0183.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0184.jpg

Dicker Kumpel told us that you see this big hotel really early, when you arrive in Travemünde by a ferry.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0188.jpg

It was time to go home, so we went to the old train station.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0193.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0198.jpg

We had fun on our way home and sang nice songs like ‘Rolling home’.

Love
Gozer

Emjay's place, Delft, Netherlands - 2nd July 2013

By: Emjay

Hi Gozer,

How nice that you sang on the train! I know you have a good voice. You could be in a choir yourself!
I can see you're enjoying yourself with the other TV's at RikeH's. Soon there will be two TV's coming over to Delft: Orkku Orava and Emil.
I hope you have still some nice adventures to come.

Big hug,
your mum Emjay.

Grabau, Germany - 16th July 2013

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

We took a trip by bike to this nice place today. It was a group of big boulders.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0267.jpg

This was a very big granite.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0263.jpg

We all relaxed on one of the boulders in the sunshine.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%2013/D_0274.jpg

Many years ago trains used this way – I saw photos from the Past.

Sülfeld, Germany - 22nd July 2013

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

I found a new host for me. You remember HelmutBluepant? We had a great time together. Then he went back home – and now he invited me to visit him. And I was so happy – he came with his family to Sülfeld – so I didn’t had to travel inside an envelope.

We were happy to see him and his friends.

It was so nice to see Helmut again!

Then we had some delicious cakes. Can you see how hot it was? The chocolate melted.

We ate a lot – it was yummy!

Then Dicker Kumpel got a present by Helmut. Delicious drinks.

We spent the afternoon relaxing in the sunshine and of course we talked a lot!

Then it was time to say goodbye to Dicker Kumpel. We had so much fun together.

All my friends gave me a hug.

Cuddling is great – so we had a big cuddle.

Now I am on my way to Remscheid – I will write soon.
