vadstena, sweden - 11th June 2013

By: turtles

Hello from Sweden <3

Today mom, dad, 10C and I arrived at Sweden.

We took the Öresund Bridge from Copenhagen to Malmo - it is a wonderful feeling to drive over this great bridge:


We drove highway E4 to the north and after a delicate lunch in Ljungby we reached the Lake Vättern:


This lake my dad wants to circuit next Friday together with 20.000 other crazy cyclists. Oh-oh....

We arrived at Vadstena Camping, a nice place at the lake. We parked our camper and mom and i explored Vadstena by bicycle.

Here you can see me at the drawbridge to the castle:


and this is the beautiful Vadstena Castle, built in 1545:


After a rest at the castle we drove back to our camper along the lakeside.

I slept very well this night.

Lake Tåkern, Sweden - 12th June 2013

By: turtles

Today was a sunny morning, only a little bit cold, said my mom - I didn't agree ;)

Dad relaxed at the camper and mom and I started for a little bicycle excursion. We saw a lot of these beautiful red wodden houses, which are typical for Sweden:


and these wonderful alley:


Then we arrived at Lake Tåkern. A lot of wild birds live here. And last year the Naturum (=Information Center) was dedicated. Visitors get a lot of facts about the lake and the birds there.

In front of the Naturum is a nice resting place:


Look at the big bird's eggs! I don't want to meet the bird, which has laid these eggs!

And this is the Naturum:


The lake is located behind the building.

After buying some postcards (roll eyes) we looked at the interesting informations.


hmmmmm - what a nice green thing - i think it lives in the lake.


And these bird gave me a lot of advice for a better look. What did he think? I'm a very handsome bear.


Oups! The birds at the lake are closer then thought....

May i introduce: Nils Holgersson


After a little break (for writing postcards - *roll eyes*) and a walk at the lake we started to the next sight: The Rök Runestone


It is located near the church of Rök and mom and I lay in the grass in front of the church and looked at the clouds in the sky...dreaming


The day was away too fast, i think.

Gränna, Sweden - 13th June 2013

By: turtles

A bad weather day ... but i had a lot of fun during visiting Gränna.

First i took a cup of coffee at Fiket's


and had a look at the interesting old fotos at the wall:


I enjoyed this old-fashioned and cozy cafe - and the sweet tasted very good too.

Gränna is known for its red and white polkagris stick candy, also known as peppermint rock. So i visited a store which sells this candy:


and bought a polkagris stick for Mondkind


These look very good and tast minty.

The red and white sticks are the classic polkagris, but there are a lot of variety of shapes, sizes, and colors now:


Very interesting, but i have to go to Motala now....see you :)

Baltic Sea, Germany - 21st July 2013

By: turtles

It is Sunday today - and finally a wonderful sunny summer day.

So turtles and i decided to make a excursion along the coast of the Baltic Sea from Kühlungsborn to Graal-Müritz. Turtles says, it is one of the most beautiful places on earth...

We started early in the morning in Kühlungsborn and saw a lot of boats at the port:


Near the station Heiligendamm i met the "Molli", a steam-powered railway in Mecklenburg:


This is one of the passages to the beach in between Heiligendamm and Börgerende. The silver looking plant is seabuckthorn:


We met a lot of other cyclists on the way:


In Warnemünde we took the ferry from the city center to the district "Hohe Düne". We saw a big cruiser:


The beach at Graal-Müritz. We are not alone, as you can see, but we found a little place for our beach towel:


Turtles went swimming and i shared a "Buhne" (=groyne) with a friendly seagull:


After swimming we did some sunbathing. I built a sun protection with turtles cap:


This is the way along the beach. Earlier in the year bloomed the dog roses and it looks very beautiful says turtles:


We started our way back through a wonderful shady forrest:


And looked at the old harbour in Warnemünde:


A last beautiful forrest, called Ghost Wood near Nienhagen:


We reached Kühlungsborn at 6 P.M. and turtles drove us back to Lübeck in her car very quickly. That was a great day for me. I enjoyed the trip very much.

See you soon - i hope :D

Hannover, Germany - 27th July 2013

By: turtles

Today turtles was very excited. She made me a Bandana, because it shall be sunny and hot this day. Where will we go?

First we drove to Hamburg and met with mondkind and her son and Possy & Crossy. How nice! Possy and Crossy had a lot to report and Nicole looked very happy.

We took place in front of the car and turtles gave us a booklet of Robbie Williams. And then she showed us tickets! We will meet Robbie Williams for a concert in Hannover! Yeah! Rock 'n Roll!

I started immeditely learning lyrics, but P & C started dancing:


We left mondkinds son at her nice auntie and did the last meters by train. In front of the stadium we found this beautiful poster:


Because we were very early, we got fan zone bracelets from the security people. Mondkind and turtles were enthusiastic and we went to the park and sat down under a tree...and waited...and waited...and waited.

Then we could enter the stadium. At the entrance were a lot of people:




During the concert the whole place (which is empty at this moment) was full of people! And we were near the stage :D

After a long time of waiting (with some rain...), the show started with Olly Murs, who did a great job!


And then HE came - the one and only Mr. Robbie Williams:



Can you imagine, how close to the stage i was? Wow!!! I saw everything! And P & C had a lot of fun too. I heard they screaming ;)

After the concert, which was too short, we took a drink in a beer garden. And i needed a shower, because i was whiffy.

What a wonderful day! Thank you Mr. Williams for entertaining us!
