Solingen, Schloss Burg, Germany - 28th July 2013

By: olgamaus

Hi Grandma,
today we visited a medieval castle in the neighbour city Solingen, Schloss Burg, It is situated high upon a hill above the River Wupper. Around the castle you can find many lovely old houses.


Indeed, this house is the oldest here, built in 1673, which means that it is 340 years old!


This is the castle.



There are some shops in the courtyard, they were still closed. We came here early because later it will be terribly hot. We knew than that the shops do not open before 10:30 a.m. The shop owners are mostly doing an "old" handcraft, for example handmade brushes, brooms, soap, lovely yarns and wooden knitting needles, toys like swords and helmets and of course souvenirs.


Schloss Burg was built in 1133 by Count Adolf I von Berg on a hill above the river Wupper.That's why this region is called "Bergisches Land".

About a hundred years later it was enlarged by Count Engelberg II von Berg. This is the man on the horse in the courtyard.


In Thirty Years War (17th century) large parts of the castle were destroyed. It was rebuilt then, but it was used for industrial purposes for many years. In the end of the 19th century they began to rebuild it as it appears today.

The round tower was the powder tower, it was restored about some years ago. There would be going on something later, there were beer stalls everywhere.


You have a fantastic overview from here across the valley of river Wupper.






There is a shop in the forecourt where they sell fruit wine and other kinds of wine. They had beautifully carved chairs to sit and enjoy the wine - but not in the early morning ;)



We left the castle ground to take a walk in the beautiful surroundings. From here we walked into the forest.




There are route markings for hiking trails.


We left the forest and came to the next rural hamlet.




Bye for now

Remscheid, TV-meeting, Germany - 5th October 2013

By: olgamaus

Hi Grandma,
today I took part in a very special event: A ToyVoyagers meeting! Hostmum Katja met Strunki and mcdaniels at Strunki's home. There were 16 ToyVoyagers!


There was a welcome sign for each "TV-Family".


I came here with Kirin, nosyblue,Tsukumo,RockyRaccoon, OleOrangescarf and KoalaMimi .

We met Sargent Froggo,*Nick*,UrselHH,Laika,Gozer,Hase,Charlotte,HelmutBluepant,TheWotWots and Elmar.

Strunki prepared a present for every guest :)


Have a look - a neck kerchief, a scented candle, yummy chocolate and a lollipop.


The ladies were starving, so we helped Strunki so finish the prepared lunch - spaghetti with vegetables.


We explored the garden than.



There is even a pond.


Here is the whole flock of ToyVoyagers :D




Finally there was a fantastic party with candy, chocolate and other delicacies,also a yummy liquor, Killepitsch.



Later, when it was time to say goodbye, Strunki told me that she had a friend, also ToyVoyager member, who probably would like to host me for a while. So I decided to stay here, let's see if we could become frineds.

twin peaks, central - 28th May 2014

By: Sheepguarded

What a sheep is thinking
my dear world wide web. Do you know the feeling to be that sick of another person that you can't stand watching him doing what he always does? And to know that you are tied to him (or her or it) every damned day? So much that you get howling mad when you just think of himherit. But on the other hand you ve got the distinct feeling that you are big part of the problem and wish u could just lean back and relax and let it all start new. Would be good if one could pull out a sort of time-out-card.
