Jasper's home, Switzerland - 7th October 2013

By: Jasper

Hi mommy and daddy,
at the moment I would like to spend the whole day in bed.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13023_zpsf44f71de.jpg

The weather is lousy. Since I'm here, I've never seen the sun. Only fog and rain.

On Thursday we go on holiday. Wish me luck that the weather is better then.
To improve my mood, I tried on my new winter clothes.

Jasper's home, Switzerland - 9th October 2013

By: Jasper

Hi mommy and daddy,
Today I packed the suitcase because we leave tomorrow for the holidays.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13003_zpsb8e94be3.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13004_zps50a4bd1c.jpg

It's just a short trip - but holiday.

Getting up at 3:30. Much too early but we need to be at the airport at 6.00 clock.
Where we travel is still a surprise.

The suitcase is too full. By joining forces, we have closed it.

And now - ready for take off

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13014_zpsf1b2a58f.jpg

On Tuesday I'm back.

until then

Goodbye dear friend and enjoy your new adventure.

Vienna, Austria - 10th October 2013

By: Jasper

Hi mommy and daddy,
it's me again.
Our first trip took us to Schönbrunn, the summer residence of Empress Maria Theresia.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13114_zpse8995717.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13112_zps841625ed.jpg

The exceptionally large Castle (1441 rooms) is built in baroque and rococo style.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13103_zpsd0865adb.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13099_zpse0c98585.jpg

It served as the residence of the imperial family, but also for representative purposes.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13081_zps53402427.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13088_zps7df540ea.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13094_zps688b3b28.jpg

The Neptune Fountain was built in 1776-1780.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13076_zpse930c504.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13079_zps569c0a29.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13090_zps26682b12.jpg

The Palm House.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13060_zpsfc3c8e77.jpg

In the huge park countless gardeners were busy prepare the beds for winter.

The Gloriette.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13096_zps700fbd14.jpg

In front of the castle we met "Mozart".

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13117_zps1a6c5391.jpg

Then I had a conversation with a Fiaker horse.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13102_zps5ec058b1.jpg

It looked tired. I think to be a TV horse is much funnier.

But hey, I met a real horse.

A bit later we drove to the hotel. It was a long day.
That's it for now.

Bye, love you
Hanne

Vienna, Austria - 11th October 2013

By: Jasper

Servus, Grüezi and Hello,
after a long sleep and a good breakfast we started in the second Day. The Naschmarkt on the program. The weather did not look promising, but that could not stop us.
The Naschmarkt is Vienna's most popular market. Located at the Wienzeile over the Wien River it is about 1,5 kilometers long.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13123_zps8c6bb9a2.jpg

The Naschmarkt has existed since the 16th century when mainly milk bottles were sold (As Milk Bottles were made out of Ash (Wood from an Ash-Tree), "Asch"(German for "Ash")led to the name "Aschenmarkt"). From 1793 onwards, all fruits and vegetables brought to Vienna with carts had to be sold here, while goods arriving on the Danube were sold elsewhere. Nowadays, you can buy fresh fruit and vegetables from around the world, exotic herbs, cheese, baked goods such as bread, kaiser rolls, and torte, meats, and seafood. There are also a lot of small restaurants which offer e.g. sushi, kebab, seafood, traditional Viennese food such as Kaiserschmarrn or Palatschinken (compares to rolled up crepes) and stalls which offer clothes and accessories.
We strolled through the market and admired the offer.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13139_zps04360be3.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13144_zps6eefdc33.jpg

The traders are very friendly. Everywhere you can taste the goods.
Once the market run up and down and you are full.
Of course, we enjoyed a glass of wine.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13128_zps24336c53.jpg

Then came the big rain and everyone was looking for a dry place.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13129_zps34d99017.jpg

After dinner (no pictures, it was just too full) we were on our way home.
We walked past to the Hotel Sacher,

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13147_zps67db0695.jpg

took a look in the Kärntner Strasse (the famous shopping street)

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13153_zps6d86ea0d.jpg

and saw the brightly lit Opera House.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13158_zps21e5188d.jpg

A day with many impressions came to an end.
bye
Hanne

Vienna, Austria - 12th October 2013

By: Jasper

Hello my dear at home
lots of sun and a bright blue sky lured us outside. The Hundertwasser House was our first destination.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13163_zps0664bb86.jpg

The Hundertwasser House in Vienna is a building designed by artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser in Vienna's 3rd district. The extraordinary building was constructed between 1983 and 1985.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13171_zpsbeb8570a.jpg

The colorfully decorated exterior façade of Hundertwasser draws attention to itself almost magically. Anyone who lives in the Hundertwasser House also has the right to decorate the façade around the windows entirely to their own taste.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13173_zpsc19a5c6c.jpg

More than 200 trees and shrubs on the balconies and roof terraces make the Hundertwasser House a green oasis in the heart of the city.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13178_zps0dc63611.jpg

A tram took us then to the Prater.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13231_zpsf04b68ed.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13232_zpsb932f771.jpg

The Prater is a large public park in Vienna's 2nd district (Leopoldstadt). The Wurstelprater amusement park, often simply called "Prater", stands in one corner of the Wiener Prater and includes the Wiener Riesenrad.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13183_zpsf15b45be.jpg

The Ferris wheel was built in 1897 and is 65 meters high. In 1916, it should have been demolished. Due to lack of financial resources it survived.
We boarded a gondola and enjoyed the view of the gigantic structure, the Prater and the city.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13191_zps256eb0be.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13193_zps21f1f8c2.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13197_zpsd3bfe3f1.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13201_zps8c2b2bde.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13206_zps67d840a8.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13210_zpsc1e5f6b7.jpg

(In the gondola before us a marriage was consummated.) We wished best of luck!
Afterwards we strolled through the park and wanted to try everything.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13224_zpsdaf0bd24.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13214_zps325de2f0.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13218_zps8866b088.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13230_zps0c5db814.jpg

Unfortunately, we were for most things either too small or too young.
Nevertheless we had a lot of fun.
Curious, what would bring us the next day we drove back to the hotel.
Greetings from your happy
Hanne

Vienna, Austria - 13th October 2013

By: Jasper

Servus and hello,
this day started on the banks of the Danube Canal.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13237_zps164d954b.jpg

Through countless small streets we came initially to Jewish quarter with its beautiful houses,

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13238_zps949abd88.jpg

the Lessing monument

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13239_zps6fd02a91.jpg

and the memorial to the Jews who were murdered during World War II in Austria.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13248_zpsc17be011.jpg

We went on and came to the Parliament.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13280_zps2c78f539.jpg

The next building we saw was the Town Hall on the Ringstrasse.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13290_zpsd88bb5dc.jpg

Built between 1872 - 1883 it has 1575 rooms , 2035 windows and 5 towers . The tallest tower measures 103 meters - with Rathausmann . Emperor Franz Josef I decreed that any new tower should not be higher than the tower of the Votive Church , which was 99 meters high. The architect designed a 98 meter high tower and put the Rathausmann on it to make it appear higher.
Directly opposite the town hall is the famous Burgtheater.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13296_zpscc275cbf.jpg

These are the towers of the Votive Church.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13303_zpsdb0331dc.jpg

We walked back past the Burgtheater,

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13287_zps9c7fba2e.jpg

- I saw some more Fiaker horses -

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13306_zps886e6f7c.jpg

to the Volksgarten (People's Garden).

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13309_zpse44e6c50.jpg

Between thousands of rose bushes , we took a short break.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13314_zps6766313e.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13318_zpsffc32ad6.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13319_zpsb92a63b3.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13312_zps0bb58253.jpg

Then we went to the Hofburg (Imperial Palace).

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13257_zps40919164.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13322_zpsc416ee22.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13330_zpsf5911754.jpg

The various tracts that make up the Imperial Palace , were built between 13 and 19 - 20 Century. In the entire history the Imperial Palace was home to some of the most powerful people in Europe. Currently, the castle serves as the official residence of the Austrian president.
In addition, it is home to numerous museums, the Spanish Riding School and a convention center.

On Heldenplatz outside the Hofburg.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13261_zps6750c64a.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13328_zps17b1dcaa.jpg

One of the many internal courtyard with a monument. I do not remember to whom.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13266_zps34c781af.jpg

The monument to Empress Maria Theresia.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13275_zps4aa6802d.jpg

Museum of Art History. The Natural History Museum is directly opposite.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13276_zpsa5000b09.jpg

The Spanish Riding School.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13340_zps93338a8e.jpg

Unfortunately, there were no tickets. :-( (
But I had a bit of luck.

Mommy & Daddy - I saw real Lipizzaner horses. In this machine, they make her walk during the stall is cleaned.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13355_zpsdea35007.jpg

This is the St. Michael's Wing of the Hofburg.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13250_zps3f060741.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13349_zps9e642991.jpg

At St. Michael's Square.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13341_zpsa4f2a3e5.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13352_zps7420b82b.jpg

Here we stand on the terrace in front of the Albertina and look at the Sacher Hotel (from behind).

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13359_zpse9a2b81b.jpg

The Albertina houses one of the largest and most important collections of - 50,000 paintings and 900'000 artistic works ranging from the late Gothic period to the present.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13364_zpsf5a75109.jpg

Albertina Place

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13368_zps56cc91d3.jpg

Then we reached the Stephansplatz. First we saw the Haas Haus,

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13374_zps65db717c.jpg

and then St. Stephen's Cathedral.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13379_zpsc79e32e8.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13384_zpsef61a523.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13387_zps563d58ed.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13388_zpscbd146ba.jpg

The cathedral has been restored several times, rebuilt and expanded.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13411_zpse057ffe6.jpg

The massive south tower is 136 meters high and the construction took 65 years.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13416_zpsfa992f0f.jpg

The construction of the North Tower was stopped because of the Gothic architectural style went out of fashion.
The roof is covered with 230,000 colored tiles and really spectacular.

A lady drove us with the carriage through Vienna.

Take pics was a little difficult. It bounced heavily on the cobbles.

This is the Peter Church.

Also the tallest building in Austria - the DC Tower

Vienna, Austria - 14th October 2013

By: Jasper

Hi Mommy and Daddy,
last day in Vienna, and still so much to look at . After breakfast we made ​​our way to the Belvedere Palace.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13498_zps3e37de00.jpg

At the turn of the 17th and 18 century Prince Eugene of Savoy has bought a huge plot of land near the Rennweg and let there first build the lower Belvedere. He used it as a summer - residence. The Upper Belvedere should be much smaller , but he had apparently too much money, and so he let built a castle, which was much greater than that in which he lived .

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13503_zps276b5567.jpg

A beautiful French garden

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13509_zps59fbc170.jpg

and  large pools of water are also included.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13507_zpsbbd82e90.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13508_zpsdff2d2e1.jpg

Because it is autumn , most beds are cleared and the pools have no water .
The city park is well worth a visit. We admired the opulent Johann - Strauss monument

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13510_zps6408a004.jpg

and sat at the city park bridge that crosses the river Wien .

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13515_zpsbcae0ed0.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13516_zps02444a63.jpg

We looked at the Charles Church

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13518_zpsb8cc42e7.jpg

and drank " Sturm" ( freshly fermented grape juice )

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13523_zps8b6cc72f.jpg

Then it was time to say goodbye to Vienna . The train took us to the airport .

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13527_zpsdb15abc9.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13528_zpsf8e923a8.jpg

Boarding in Jasper's bag

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13489_zps854f6179.jpg

The rest was sleep sleep sleep .

Good night my dear ones .
Hanne

Jasper's home, Switzerland - 15th October 2013

By: Jasper

Hello my dear,
for every TV comes a time that he has to travel further. Next travel means goodbye to dear friends.
After a long time together, we had to say goodbye today to Frederik and Panda_Lilo.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13001_zps3e92dcac.jpg

Many big hugs and best wishes will accompany them on their way.

And of course some chocolate against boredom.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13007_zpsc4b0cda1.jpg

Although, they travel together, there should arise no boredom.

With a heavy heart we watched as they climbed into their envelope and left us.

Goodbye - have a safe trip.

Hugs and kisses for you mommy and daddy

Jasper's home, Switzerland - 29th October 2013

By: Jasper

Hi mommy and daddy,
sorry for the long wait. Jasper was sick and we had a lot to do to get her back on her feet.
Today a nice packet has arrived.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/001_zps8de6503d.jpg

From Alaska. The first thing we saw were two big, splendid teeth and a giant mustache.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/002_zpsb9e4b775.jpg

Aiviq called our new friend and he's a walrus.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/003_zps1cc59073.jpg

He looks soo funny.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/004_zps9588aa18.jpg

We hugged him and gave him a warm welcome.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/009_zps8600ff2b.jpg

He showed us his gifts

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/008_zps62ac80b8.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/006_zps1c15dd00.jpg

and told us about his trip and Alaska.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/005_zps4f726df1.jpg

He's a nice guy, we will have lots of fun together.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/013_zps6b6190f8.jpg

See you soon

on a walk, Switzerland - 30th October 2013

By: Jasper

Hi mommy and daddy ,
Today we took a little walk. Because Jasper is still not fully fit we ran just a bit through the forest. Not spectacular but the fresh air felt good.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/021_zps795d8152.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/028_zpsdd8eb664.jpg

To go into the woods we had to cross a pasture.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/086_zps872c0e69.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/087_zps0a1457d8.jpg

The cows were curious but friendly.

The forest looked very wild.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/029_zps0fce2222.jpg

During last autumn storm some trees have fallen.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/033_zps030ba3e8.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/034_zps9bd8a7f0.jpg

The loggers have a lot to do now.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/079_zps2f236eb7.jpg

The foliage invited to play. Unfortunately, it was too wet.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/038_zps91ba9c05.jpg

We saw large withered fern fronds.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/039_zps2e81350a.jpg

So we walked and walked,

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/048_zps8e1a7062.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/053_zps432f9d88.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/061_zps1f6c918f.jpg

enjoyed the peace

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/045_zps99c55feb.jpg

and occasionally we saw " art " created by nature.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/056_zpscd72e2e7.jpg

In the soft moss we rested a bit.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/064_zps599b2eb3.jpg

The result of diligent work -

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/071_zps880497e8.jpg

and still plenty to do.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/069_zpsa513323d.jpg

And then - you will not believe it - we suddenly heard grunting boars .
We wanted to see , but Jasper found it safer to turn back.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/078_zpsdd600f8f.jpg

On the way home we bought pumpkins.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/089_zps9e925a9f.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/092_zps6cf94324.jpg

One in TV size for each of us.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/093_zpsb7090a6d.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/096_zps4ba546c7.jpg

Tomorrow we will carve pumpkins - for Halloween.

Hugs and kisses
Hanne

Jasper's home, Switzerland - 31st October 2013

By: Jasper

Hi mommy and daddy,
Today is Halloween and I am very busy. I have to carve my pumpkin.
First, cut off the lid. Not so easy - and even a bit dangerous with the big knife.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13005_zps710ab89d.jpg

Then, remove the seeds and slimy stuff. Disgusting.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13006_zps0c6da684.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13007_zps1a26ca57.jpg

And now scrape out the pulp with a spoon. Whew, quite exhausting.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13008_zps608a8e01.jpg

Thank God we have small pumpkins this year. Jasper does not want to eat again pumpkin soup until Easter.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13009_zps74a74cd9.jpg

Now I'm going to start with carving.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13024_zps0d52ffc2.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13023_zps73869fe6.jpg

Meanwhile it is evening and we decorate the table.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13031_zps3525b264.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13030_zps5672f10b.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13032_zps79141d75.jpg

Our pumpkins glowing spooky.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13037_zps9e6b34d5.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13038_zpsec763281.jpg

We will tell scary stories, and eat sweets.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13040_zpsa833b869.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13041_zps34bbe70d.jpg

I get goosebumps already.

Hugs

at work, Switzerland - 12th November 2013

By: Jasper

Hello, I'm still alive !
I had two intense weeks. The whole family was sick. Only care was announced. Then - on Friday - Jasper was fit again and we had beautiful weather. Get out into nature ! We drove to Nesslau, a small town at the foot of the Churfirsten - great for walking . As we sat down in a pose for the first pictures came the disillusionment. The battery of the camera was empty. What a frustration. After the initial disappointment, we still enjoyed our walk - but sorry, no photos .
The Saturday started with rain and storm . Wind gusts with speeds of over 100 kilometers per hour - and so we had to stay at home again. On Sunday it snowed a little bit.
Because we were all so boring , Jasper took us on Monday to work.
We helped in the office.
I worked on the computer.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13002_zps1c8dc976.jpg

I was the boss.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13006_zps23676fa0.jpg

Here you see us on the big scale.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13008_zpscd2f2ab1.jpg

Then we checked the big warehouse.
Enough bath towels available ?

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13009_zps2deeb56d.jpg

I liked this one especially.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13015_zps52b4472b.jpg

Aprons okay?

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13012_zps327b8589.jpg

Over 200 gift packs are not yet done.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13016_zpscd25c5a6.jpg

The shelves are filled

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13021_zpsc95cab61.jpg

and the supply is piling up to the ceiling.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13022_zps2525541f.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13024_zps6a3bac08.jpg

Hours later: one last look,

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13030_zps8df60ce5.jpg

and then the work was done.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13031_zps931491ec.jpg

I hope the boring days are over.

Bye for now.

Köbelisberg, Lichtensteig, Switzerland - 22nd November 2013

Hi mommy and daddy,
Today we went for a walk. In the first snow. After many, many days with fog (Jasper can not remember such a misty autumn) it was glorious.
Warmly dressed, we trudged off.

We enjoyed the sun and the fresh air made us cocky.
We played in the snow

and were soaking wet after a short time.
Back at home, Jasper wrapped us in a warm towel

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13032_zps3fe48441.jpg

and brought us a hot tea.

Bern, Switzerland - 24th November 2013

By: Jasper

Hi all,
Today we visited the capital of Switzerland - Bern. The weather was not on our side but we did not care.
Bern was first mentioned in documents in 1208. To date, the city has retained its old world charm. So we strolled through the streets,

admiring the old buildings

and arcades.

Many beautiful fountains adorn the cityscape.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13154_zpsddfb2aa0.jpg

This is the Käfigturm (Prison Tower).

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13009_zps113496b5.jpg

The House of Parliament.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13017_zpsb59b7390.jpg

Today there were no guides - it was voting Sunday.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13025_zps8f819f83.jpg

This is the view from the terrace on the Federal Palace in a district on the river Aare.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13031_zpsd8430943.jpg

The National Bank.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13036_zps09f240ef.jpg

On the Federal Court,

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13035_zps78583063.jpg

where I stands now, a large, traditional market will be held tomorrow - the Zibelemärit (onion market). All shops are closed, the students do not have school. A really big thing. Around 50 tons of onions, most braided into elaborate braids or wreaths are made ​​available for sale. And at 16.00 clock, there is then a wild confetti battle.
Too bad we can not take part.

The old casino.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13042_zpsa5129781.jpg

A bear as an art object.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13046_zps77be2baa.jpg

The bear is an important part of the city. I do not know why but in the arms of the city a bear is shown and Jasper told us that on the banks of the Aare live bears.

November mood.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13049_zps46f75f20.jpg

Another object of art. It stood in the middle of the street.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13051_zps950a24c4.jpg

A famous building in the city of Bern -

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13057_zps83bfcf6c.jpg

the Zyytgloggeturm. ( Clock Tower )

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13078_zps36bc4948.jpg

We saw festively decorated shop windows,

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13081_zpsd8d78ab9.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13093_zps00345719.jpg

churches,

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13085_zps8184d41c.jpg

the town hall

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13090_zpsc3b8f54f.jpg

and small and charming neighborhoods.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13101_zps7ab4fee0.jpg

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13128_zps7a8cb126.jpg

Then we came to a small road whose paving stones were all marked with a name.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13109_zps43e4d397.jpg

Jasper told us why: A few years ago, when the bear pit was converted for animal welfare reasons, cost a lot of money. They came up with the idea to sell stones. Anyone who bought a stone or donated money for the reconstruction was immortalized by name. The road is long and the Bernese Bears have now a large park on the banks of the Aare.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13126_zps90a38a55.jpg

We had to look long before we discovered it .

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13125_zpsff19ebdc.jpg

In the old bear pit you can learn about the lives of animals now.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13151_zpsec0f0f85.jpg

From the cathedral terrace you have a beautiful view of the old town and the Aare.

This is the city theater.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13159_zpse4559277.jpg

A chocolate manufactory. Unfortunately on Sunday the store was closed.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13161_zps5b357ae5.jpg

On the way to the station we saw the Hotel Schweizerhof.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13165_zps05f44ccd.jpg

Now it was time to think on the way home. We had 2 1/2 hour train ride ahead of us.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13170_zps25de3094.jpg

Something wet we warmed in Jasper scarf.

http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u614/Hemming60/TV3/ToyVoyagers13168_zps2621d5c3.jpg

For a short time we looked out the window but then we overcame fatigue.

I hope you like my trip to Bern.
Hugs and kisses

Hanne
