http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/08-09-13%20Besuch%20bei%20Regina/Foto7310_zpsf112f9c2.jpg

Then they invited us to a delicous chocolate-gumbear-meal
http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/08-09-13%20Besuch%20bei%20Regina/Foto7315_zpsc644de5d.jpg
http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/08-09-13%20Besuch%20bei%20Regina/Foto7316_zpsd0bf7a27.jpg
We had a lot of fun telling and listen to the adventures

After hours of happiness enjoying their community it was time to say Goodbye, because Helmut, Lotte and the little skunk will spend some time here...

Good bye old pal HelmutBluepant, we spent a great time together
http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/08-09-13%20Besuch%20bei%20Regina/Foto7324_zps27a8b5ef.jpg

http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/08-09-13%20Besuch%20bei%20Regina/Foto7318_zps86867dbb.jpg

Finally we gave a last group-hug to little Mefito, we had a lot of fun with You

http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/08-09-13%20Besuch%20bei%20Regina/Foto7326_zpsaf3eec7b.jpg
Leaving plushies is not so easy, but I hope we will meet again, sometime, somewhere...
Then we travelled back to Remscheid with strunki, that she´s not alone without Lotte and Helmut

Wolf / Moselle, Germany - 14th September 2013

By: Strunki

Hello Mum,

this weekend we made a nice trip to the river Moselle
http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/14-09-13%20Weinfest%20Wolf/Foto7328_zps23eebda5.jpg

We went to Wolf, a part of Traben-Trarbach, because on this weekend we want to visit the wine-festival there
http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/14-09-13%20Weinfest%20Wolf/Foto7336_zps21385dc2.jpg

On the river drove some nice ships and You have a nice view on the hills where the wine grows
http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/14-09-13%20Weinfest%20Wolf/Foto7419_zpse1f930ce.jpg
http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/14-09-13%20Weinfest%20Wolf/Foto7423_zpsfc9bdcb8.jpg

All houses and the streets were decorated with colourful garlands and the old town-flag
http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/14-09-13%20Weinfest%20Wolf/Foto7368_zps9c43a69b.jpg
http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/14-09-13%20Weinfest%20Wolf/Foto7427_zpsd8cd7e48.jpg

A lot of old houses are renovated and show permanent colourful ornaments as well

http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/14-09-13%20Weinfest%20Wolf/Foto7359_zps94221c94.jpg
A nice balcony
http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/14-09-13%20Weinfest%20Wolf/Foto7372_zps413435bf.jpg
and other half timbered houses

http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/14-09-13%20Weinfest%20Wolf/Foto7415_zps397c3d42.jpg
Interesting: This house was build in 1782 and the first high-water-mark is only two years later....

http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/14-09-13%20Weinfest%20Wolf/Foto7354_zps397c2bd5.jpg
But now let´s concentrate on the wine-festival
http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/14-09-13%20Weinfest%20Wolf/Foto7484_zpsbaa180cd.jpg

Everywhere in the streets bands were playing nice music
http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/14-09-13%20Weinfest%20Wolf/Foto7459_zpsc8a73efa.jpg
http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/14-09-13%20Weinfest%20Wolf/Foto7460_zpsf9c588c8.jpg
This blue-white band comes from Eindhoven and is called "Just Fun"

Before we found something to eat and drink we had fun at a still

http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/14-09-13%20Weinfest%20Wolf/Foto7341_zpsdb501564.jpg

A nice horse told us where we perhaps find something to eat
http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/14-09-13%20Weinfest%20Wolf/Foto7367_zpsc6a24632.jpg

We found some peaches on trees and some blue grapes, but we won´t plunder foreign gardens ;)

http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/14-09-13%20Weinfest%20Wolf/Foto7398_zpsd6677da6.jpg

Perhaps a spit roast?
http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/14-09-13%20Weinfest%20Wolf/Foto7358_zps7e911177.jpg

We decided to eat a huge steak with onions
http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/14-09-13%20Weinfest%20Wolf/Foto7389_zps029fbb51.jpg

And, of course, we drank some wine
http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/14-09-13%20Weinfest%20Wolf/Foto7390_zps9203ba0c.jpg

A nice place was here

I  was responsible for the butter
http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/20-09-13%20Plumcake/Foto7496_zps5ffdfe32.jpg

First I put the butter in the pot and watched, how it stirred creamy

http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag7/Achims/20-09-13%20Plumcake/Foto7503_zps8a92587f.jpg

When Elmar added the eggs and Laika added the flour, we all watched the pot again and waited for the plums

Schloss Burg, Solingen, Germany - 22nd September 2013

By: Strunki

Hi Mum,

today we visited the the old Mediveal Castle "Schloss Burg" of the counts of Berg that was rebuilt in the late 19th. century.
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/22-09-13%20Schloss%20Burg/Foto7517_zps0d20e806.jpg http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/22-09-13%20Schloss%20Burg/Foto7521_zps68e3ce21.jpg

So let´s go through the first huge portal and have a look at the first court
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/22-09-13%20Schloss%20Burg/Foto7525_zps33982fe5.jpg http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/22-09-13%20Schloss%20Burg/Foto7572_zps73ed267e.jpg

Very nice the first impressions, "typical Bergisch"
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/22-09-13%20Schloss%20Burg/Foto7529_zpsab66443b.jpg

Here we have the view behind the gate
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/22-09-13%20Schloss%20Burg/Foto7564_zps2347c60e.jpg
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/22-09-13%20Schloss%20Burg/Foto7533_zpsdb488aea.jpg http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/22-09-13%20Schloss%20Burg/Foto7537_zpsd0d5413e.jpg

The statue you see shows Count Engelbert of Berg. By this noble family the region is named Bergisches Land, not because they have some small mountains and hills here 
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/22-09-13%20Schloss%20Burg/Foto7541_zps1a269830.jpg

A thick defending tower
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/22-09-13%20Schloss%20Burg/Foto7545_zpsc5dcae72.jpg

But Schloss Burg doesn´t only mean see an old castle, You also can have a trip from the valley station to the upper station of the ropeway

http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/22-09-13%20Schloss%20Burg/Foto7563_zps5596ce45.jpg
Every child and, of couse, bravely tv´s as well should get one as a typical souvenir from here :p

From here You have a nice view on the landscape and the ropeway as well
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/22-09-13%20Schloss%20Burg/Foto7553_zps93f74efd.jpg

Lots of nice Begisch cafe´s and restaurants You find here

Remscheid, Eschbachtalsperre, Germany - 28th September 2013

By: Strunki

Hello Mum,

today we made a trip around the Eschbachdam, Germanys oldest reservoir dam. Eschbachtalsperre

http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/28-09-13%20Eschbachtalsperre/Foto7614_zps5144519f.jpg
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/28-09-13%20Eschbachtalsperre/Foto7619_zpse8f917ee.jpg
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/28-09-13%20Eschbachtalsperre/Foto7623_zps9322428c.jpg

There is a nice footpath around

http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/28-09-13%20Eschbachtalsperre/Foto7627_zpsdc741181.jpg

A little part of this path is also an element of the famous pilgrimpath, the Jacobus-way, wich combined the track between Dortmund and Cologne

http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/28-09-13%20Eschbachtalsperre/Foto7631_zps3d5c2225.jpg


In the near we found a stone-cross, the table says, that a crime happend there almost 500 years ago...

http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/28-09-13%20Eschbachtalsperre/Foto7633_zps6a13c093.jpg
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/28-09-13%20Eschbachtalsperre/Foto7632_zps9b3e9ddd.jpg

On our way there we found some nice looking mushrooms

http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/28-09-13%20Eschbachtalsperre/Foto7634_zps3d3b959b.jpg

When we left the path nearby the dam and walked up, we reached the top and had a view on the southern part of Remscheid

http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/28-09-13%20Eschbachtalsperre/Foto7635_zps9309ceaf.jpg
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/28-09-13%20Eschbachtalsperre/Foto7636_zpsa82a4b0e.jpg

There we saw haws, also called rosehips
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/28-09-13%20Eschbachtalsperre/Foto7643_zpsb325e45a.jpg

And we played in the pink hawthorn [Crataegus laevigata]
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/28-09-13%20Eschbachtalsperre/Foto7648_zpsc5f145cd.jpg

The best: we found wild cherries (Prunus avium) and collected them :p
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/28-09-13%20Eschbachtalsperre/Foto7651_zpse14d8e68.jpg

On our way back to the dam again, we saw nice looking mushrooms, but they didn´t really look eatable...
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/28-09-13%20Eschbachtalsperre/Foto7656_zps0eb1ccb2.jpg
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/28-09-13%20Eschbachtalsperre/Foto7657_zpsdd651725.jpg

Our nice walk ended at the dam again
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/28-09-13%20Eschbachtalsperre/Foto7664_zps17ca658f.jpg
What a nice sunny autumn-day

Love and see You soon Mum
Yours

Remscheid-Lüttringhausen, Germany - 29th September 2013

By: Strunki

Hi Mum,

today we visited a very old part of Remscheid near Wuppertal, called Lüttringhausen. There was a rural festival in the Streets
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/29-09-13%20Lennep-Marmelade/Foto7679_zpsb9dabcd2.jpg

But there were soo many people that we decided only to have a look at the church there
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/29-09-13%20Lennep-Marmelade/Foto7671_zps980faee8.jpg
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/29-09-13%20Lennep-Marmelade/Foto7675_zps1a548ab3.jpg

The funniest this morning was to meet the famous little mole :cyclops:
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/29-09-13%20Lennep-Marmelade/Foto7670_zpsdcff2b88.jpg

Remscheid, Strunkis Garden, Germany - 29th September 2013

By: Strunki

In the early afternoon we went back to strunkis home and had fun in the garden, trying to create jam out of our wild cherries we collected yesterday
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/29-09-13%20Lennep-Marmelade/Foto7683_zps24764ee7.jpg

...We don´t know exactly, if our protection clothes made from some medical glowes were the result of the young red wine strunki enjoyed.... :cyclops:
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/29-09-13%20Lennep-Marmelade/Foto7684_zps6355a3e6.jpg
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/29-09-13%20Lennep-Marmelade/Foto7688_zps19cd07f7.jpg
...but it protected our fur against some bad cherry-juice-drops...

Laika and me sorted out the cherries
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/29-09-13%20Lennep-Marmelade/Foto7689_zpsfe910bd8.jpg

I filled the cleaned cherries into the pot
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/29-09-13%20Lennep-Marmelade/Foto7694_zps1eeea5c0.jpg

Part one is done...
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/29-09-13%20Lennep-Marmelade/Foto7696_zps977ebf11.jpg http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/29-09-13%20Lennep-Marmelade/Foto7697_zps21a720cf.jpg
...But what about electricity?

Thanks strunkis husband, he connected the mixer and we were able to stay in the garden
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/29-09-13%20Lennep-Marmelade/Foto7698_zps3eaa1fad.jpg

So carefully we mixed the fruits, caring that the cherry stones did not break
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/29-09-13%20Lennep-Marmelade/Foto7702_zps3850c2c5.jpg

Looks almost ready
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/29-09-13%20Lennep-Marmelade/Foto7704_zps46b9855b.jpg

Now we have to filter the juice
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/29-09-13%20Lennep-Marmelade/Foto7706_zps83abdacb.jpg
and now the protection clothes help to stay clean :D

Now we cook the juice
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/29-09-13%20Lennep-Marmelade/Foto7710_zpsb89514d3.jpg

But not forget the jam sugar
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/29-09-13%20Lennep-Marmelade/Foto7711_zps3447d8e6.jpg

Waiting that the the jam will be ready to fill up in glasses
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/29-09-13%20Lennep-Marmelade/Foto7713_zps8a38711e.jpg

Now our work is done :cyclops:
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/29-09-13%20Lennep-Marmelade/Foto7714_zps79d76d14.jpg
Four Glasses we got, one for everybody

That was my weekend,

Remscheid, Strunkis Home, Germany - 7th October 2013

By: Strunki

Today strunki was too busy and left us alone in the house... with the huge gum-box... big mistake... :thinking:
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/07-10-13%20Nickkaspereien/Foto7778_zps66d40582.jpg
*Nick* brought us the great idea to celebrate a "silly sports day" :p
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/07-10-13%20Nickkaspereien/Foto7777_zpsc9272979.jpg
Have You ever heard about gum-diving?? Here You see the very first four athlets... We hope it becomes an olympic discipline :cyclops:

The next discipline is "marshmellow-Balance", veeeeery difficult and You need an absolute perfect body control...
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/07-10-13%20Nickkaspereien/Foto7772_zps6421094e.jpg
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/07-10-13%20Nickkaspereien/Foto7775_zpsc082daaa.jpg
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/07-10-13%20Nickkaspereien/Foto7776_zps911bfdcb.jpg
Elmar... he won, because the rest of us ate the marshmellows before the contest ended...

The last discipline was cake-jumping...
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/07-10-13%20Nickkaspereien/Foto7771_zpsbdf7dd03.jpg
But look what happend with Elmar... his trunk plugged into a hole in the cake...
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/07-10-13%20Nickkaspereien/Foto7766_zpsf1b12479.jpg
Of course we helped and pushed him out :cyclops:
http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y436/strunki/07-10-13%20Nickkaspereien/Foto7767_zpsc1f2b2a2.jpg

See and hughughug You
Your good boy
