Venlo, Netherlands - 12th September 2015

By: olgamaus

Hi Mum,

today we made a trip to Venlo, a small town in the Netherlands. Venlo is a city in the southeastern Netherlands, near the German border. It is situated in the province of Limburg. Venlo is well-known as a city for shopping; lots of Germany are travelling to Venlo at the weekend to buy foodstuffs because some of them are much cheaper there. We went to Venlo by train, it took us 90 minutes to get there.

In the Netherlands millions of people are using their bikes.

It was just a short walk until we reached the city centre.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5709/20797622663_50f63d2768_z.jpg

There are lots of lovely houses with shops, restaurants, cafés and bars.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5726/21230862708_84e4d2c1fb_z.jpg

Next we took a walk to river Mass, we had a coffee here.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5639/21231811529_23f0ae7fed_z.jpg

There is an interesting contrast between the old town and those new buildings.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5797/20797630003_5a9264e4e8_z.jpg

Do you like this historic building? I did!

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/628/20796013354_1087e76ae4_z.jpg

There is a large market place in the city centre. You can buy all kinds of goods here, food like vegetables and fruits as well as flowers, fabrics, electrical equipment, candy ...

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/768/21427142841_2f3e5a488e_z.jpg

... and of course ... cheeeeese!!!

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5819/21407811302_c35307226e_z.jpg

(Katja loves cheese, she bought some of it.)

Unfortunately it started to rain than and it did not stop any more. Later we went back home by train. Katja did not only buy cheese here, but also a very special beer from a British shop. A rather funny brand, I'll shop it to you later when we will enjoy it.

Love
Anton Bär

Remscheid-Lennep, Germany - 19th September 2015

By: olgamaus

Hi Mum,

today we went to Remscheid-Lennep. My host lived in Remscheid since late summer 2014, and she grew up in the district Lennep.

Lennep is the second largest district of Remscheid with about 25.000 inhabitants. Lennep once was one of the most important cities of the region Bergisches Land.

Lennep has an historical city core based on a medieval structure. There were several large city fires, the last one in the year 1746 which destroyed most of the city. It was rebuilt afterwards. Lennep received its town charter between the years 1259 and 1276- In 1929 Lennep was annexated to Remscheid.

Katja's parents are still living here; her father in his appartment, her Mum in a nursing home. First she showed us the school she attended.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/756/20940730954_5198aec3f6_z.jpg

Next we went to the historic old town. Most houses are framework houses or they are (partly) covered with slate, traditionally with green shutters and a green door.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5742/21375434640_065fd2b0a2_z.jpg

This church once belonged to a convent, nowadays it is used as a place of cultural interest, there is also a well-known restaurant.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/595/21375642078_5636c19740_z.jpg

Isn't this a lovely view, all those picturesque houses?

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/587/20942361313_3b8b051433_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5634/21552249332_5734f30750_z.jpg

Here you can see _Mishuta_ and me sitting on the remains of the original city wall. It was used until about 1790, than the population were growing too large for the small city core. The city had to be enlarged and parts of the city wall were pulled down.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5805/21563514255_0afcfea33f_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5780/21552251332_13e5a0d7cb_z.jpg

We found this fountain showing the heraldic animal of Remscheid, the lion.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/625/21572282501_af54459759_z.jpg

We strolled through the old town and its narrow lanes. Here we came closer to the market place, you can also find one of two churches here.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5629/20942368493_5d0c3995f3_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5660/21375450940_12193b8fac_z.jpg

This is a cozy place, it seems to invite you to sit down and order coffee :D But it is a private house, so no coffee is offered :D :D

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5711/21375658588_73bc4cbd09_z.jpg

A famous person was born in Lennep. Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen, who produced and detected what is nowadays known as x-rays in 1895, was born in 1845 in Lennep. His birth house is still existent, but it was under construction and respectively hidden under a scaffolding. But they have a museum here dedicated to Roentgen.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5721/21537322146_9aebedfa31_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5816/21376603859_8876546257_z.jpg

The museum has a large new annex with a large ...

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/632/21537324356_6c41db0a60_z.jpg

... X in front of it.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5618/21375664618_174c53dc72_z.jpg

The building on the right side was an indoor swimming pool once, it was re-built to a youth center in the late 1970 years. When Katja moved to Lennep with her family in 1971, it was still a swimming pool, later she liked the youth center :)

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/580/21375665628_0bae0fa2cd_z.jpg

We went to a nice park then.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/568/21537327416_287d69151a_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5702/21563536895_062738c64b_z.jpg

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/628/21375461810_c6ef92a78d_z.jpg

As we had still enough time to spend until Katja could visit her Mum in the nursing home, she even took us to the outside of the city core. Here the houses were completely different, of course due to their later origin.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5793/21537329966_fea25a7729_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5753/20942388433_66956b635e_z.jpg

Soon we reached the end of the outskirt.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/713/21552275982_de6a5ac233_z.jpg

Behind those houses there just was green landscape waiting for us :)

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5830/21375671898_6d4ec28aa4_z.jpg

Back to civilization.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5755/21552278712_be363d72ef_z.jpg

Then it was time for Katja to meet her Mum and even later we met Katja's daughter who is living in Lennep with her boyfriend. That was a really exhausting day :)

Love
Anton Bär

Wuppertal, Germany - 23rd September 2015

By: olgamaus

Hi Mum,

in the early evening we took a walk with Jule, the dog. We went to Hardt, a small hill in the middle of the Wupper valley. It is partly covered by woodland and it contains a fantastic landscape park as well as the botanical garden of Wuppertal. It took us about 25 minutes to get there.

There are stairs everywhere to make it easier to walk uphill, often with more than 100 steps.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5640/21518180260_8e88d5d705_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5817/21680055966_50be472939_z.jpg

IN the background you can see the insurance company building I showed you last week or so.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5827/21715364161_95a16fed09_z.jpg

Soon we were high enough to have a good overview. Can you see "Wicküler City"? It was a brewery once, nowadays there is a shopping mall in the former brewery complex.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5731/21085117423_c056e2b181_z.jpg

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/564/21680060836_1983ccdc0b_z.jpg

It is highly visible that it is autumn now!

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/767/21518186820_984ed005b1_z.jpg

A few minuter we reached the top of the hill. Here you can find Elise Tower, one of the most famous landmarks of Wuppertal.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/563/21083414784_3e42e3b8bd_z.jpg

Elise Tower is marking the botanical garden. The garden dates to 1890 when a botanical school garden was first created on a smaller terrain. Between 1908-1910 it relocated to today's site, the Villa of a textile manufactor named Eller, a former country house which contained a villa (built 1820), orangery, residential and farm buildings. Elise Tower was built in 1838 A.D. as the garden's focal point.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5721/21715371501_1f2fbd54dc_z.jpg

There are also greenhouses in the entrance area.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/669/21518189920_07df8a8693_z.jpg

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/620/21706121115_2d6a219a5b_z.jpg

As it is not allowed to take dogs into the botanical garden I just had a quick look behind the fence.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/671/21519293919_96372cc87b_z.jpg

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/671/21518302348_9c182672f1_z.jpg

We walked further and reached the landscape park.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5641/21518195850_3ee05f70bd_z.jpg

In summer you can find lots of people relaxing on the lawns.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/574/21519298599_55169e325b_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5734/21715380841_70a59d37df_z.jpg

From the distance the tower is also a lovely view.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/766/21680074606_ac185d03de_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5789/21085135423_d6d9363033_z.jpg

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/599/21694663522_e377c0b248_z.jpg

On the way downhill back home we crossed river Wupper.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5729/21715387031_dd329c7d39_z.jpg

This place is close to the court centre.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5697/21706135925_bfb8fedce0_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5721/21518207270_926088b4c7_z.jpg

This is the Schwebebahn station "Landgericht", it was re-built in its original historic style some years ago.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/565/21083434464_dae1c56899_z.jpg

Here you can find both local court and district court, in addition also the industrial court.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5697/21518209080_089c590c55_z.jpg

This is Wicküler City, the shopping mall, seen from the main street.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5818/21083436344_bc3d515304_z.jpg

We made a side stop at a playground.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/571/21680085216_c816deec31_z.jpg

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/592/21085145663_2d14115b32_z.jpg

Huuu, our walk took longer that we thought :)

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/781/21715394801_5b02fa538e_z.jpg

Katja showed me our home from the rear side. Can you spot our balcony?

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5710/21715396251_2688b391d2_z.jpg

Afterwards we played with the pets. Did I already show you those furry monsters? I don't think so ... cute little things with sharp teeth and a monstrous appetite!!!

Bye
Anton Bear

Wuppertal, at home, Germany - 27th September 2015

By: olgamaus

Hi Mum,

we were enjoying the sunshine on the balcony. My host was knitting. Looks nice what she is knitting.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/621/21114502004_812b7a22eb_z.jpg

I asked her if I could learn to knit, too. "Of course", she said.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/747/21746562161_c2fdea3895_z.jpg

It's not too difficult :)

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5640/21725641622_6bb0b96b12_z.jpg

Ups! Maybe it is more difficult than I thought ;)

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5789/21550360119_54326e0234_z.jpg

I was knitting and knitting .... and I made progress.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/655/21114505024_a0d6fd88d5_z.jpg

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/731/21654451159_da812945b9_z.jpg

Today I met the pets. Look, there were four ferrets jumping around, they were curious to meet me.

This is Shiva, one of two oder ferret girls. The other tree are called Zaehnchen, Charlotte and MollyMops.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/595/21653283950_a601205d61_z.jpg

Zaehnchen was only showing her back.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/776/21841325055_de158be5d5_z.jpg

The ferrets love to play on the balcony, but of course they are living inside, in an enclosure in the living room.

Remscheid, Germany - 27th September 2015

By: olgamaus

Later we went to Remscheid, we were invited to have (late) breakfast with a friend. After leaving the bus we had to walk a few minutes. Katja showed me the shopping street with the shopping mall.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/625/21653472498_c3c31245ae_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5645/21654458609_8d4bbe77d3_z.jpg

These large forceps are a symbol for the tool producing industry here.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/590/21850926631_1ab22b6d1f_z.jpg

In the background you can see the city hall with its tower.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5619/21653474118_04050e878b_z.jpg

As we still had some time to get to Katja's friend, we walked around the streets. In this part of the city many old houses "survived" World War II.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5635/21829470352_a586023782_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5736/21218578084_49aedf38ea_z.jpg

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/597/21220283413_478d479ff5_z.jpg

Later we took a walk to a district which is about 6 km apart from the city centre, it is called Luettringhausen. We chose a nice route to get there.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/618/21841332095_789fbf29eb_z.jpg

When we walked through the outskirts we saw many old factory buildings among the dwellings.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/704/21653477028_391d5eae9e_z.jpg

Soon we reached a lovely valley with a creek running through it.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/710/21653477638_a99bbed04b_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5801/21850931681_15a360705b_z.jpg

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/705/21653479008_60ff9210a7_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5767/21654465529_8c40b08006_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5776/21653480608_53dd1b24f9_z.jpg

When we reached Luettringhausen Katja showed me the city hall. Luettringhausen is one of the historic districts, a bit like Lennep.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5721/21829476722_7aa5cb737c_z.jpg

In Luettringhausen a market was taking place, called "Herbstmarkt". You could see lots of agricultural products and also historic tractors were exhibited.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/771/21841337325_ea10dc72d8_z.jpg

If you had apple trees in your garden you could have taken your own apples here to make juice from them.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5751/21653298460_f9a598aac7_z.jpg

The narrow streets were crowded, so we enjoyed a beer and went back home.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5703/21653298990_c180174d3a_z.jpg

Owschlag, Germany - 2nd October 2015

By: olgamaus

Hi Mum,

we took off today for a short vacation in Northern Germany. We will stay in Owschlag for a few days. Owschlag is a small town in the district of Rendsburg-Eckernförde, in Schleswig-Holstein. We will live in the house of Katja's friend's parents. We arrived here in the afternoon and took a walk.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5625/22021307685_f41f40754a_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5833/22031172411_a418a94871_z.jpg

There are lots of lakes in the surroundings, from our house we can see the so-called Heideteich. The lake on the next photos is from a gravel plant.

Eckernförde, Germany - 3rd October 2015

By: olgamaus

Hi Mum,

today we visited Eckernförde, a city on the coast of the Baltic Sea, exactly at the Eckernförde Bay. First we took a walk along the promenade to the harbour and later into the city centre.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/575/21400147003_1534acc44c_z.jpg

In the spa gardens I found this sculpture.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5675/22021317435_46d4376e06_z.jpg

Then it was time for a walk along the shore! We drove to a parking lot just at the end of the city. We had to walk through the forest for a few minutes to reach the sea.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5741/21398523174_318f11bb04_z.jpg

Here in this region there are forests close to the shore.

Forests gave way for meadows with cows.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5710/21833151340_9b05d56eb0_z.jpg

Katja and her friend enjoyed a beer in a bar on a nearby camping ground. Afterwards we had to walk the same way back to the car.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/652/21398526524_70f7c822c7_z.jpg

There were large rocks along the beach which made it difficult and exhausting to walk there.

Everyone was tired then.

Sylt, Germany - 4th October 2015

By: olgamaus

Hi Mum,

today we made a day trip to Sylt. We went by train to Germanys northernmost island, located in the North Sea. In 1927 a dam was built

Sylt is connected to the German mainland by the Hindenburgdamm, a causeway with a railway line on top. We left the train in Keitum. Keitum is located on the Wadden Sea side of the island.

Houses like this are traditional in Nordfriesland.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5784/22021322155_93097f3281_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5723/22021322585_eb2570397e_z.jpg

This is the Wadden sea side of the island, the eastern coast. The Wadden Sea is famous for its rich flora and fauna, especially birds. In many areas you can even find seals.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5802/22021323155_3a2e52dd44_z.jpg

The Eastern coast of the island is partly rather flat.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/631/21834402829_0c6e1ceaca_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5813/21833154250_71ea58e687_z.jpg

We found a map of Sylt.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/619/21833154780_3ccd5780c6_z.jpg

We rested for a while in a  Strandkorb. You can find them everywhere along the German coast.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5622/21400161893_bdfeabae0c_z.jpg

In the dunes there were lots of roses bushes, all with rosehips now.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/650/22021325145_b2efd79ef0_z.jpg

We reached another interesting area, heathlands this time.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5701/21833156650_cbc8d1ffdb_z.jpg

Wooden paths were leading through this area, you were not allowed to leave them.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5680/22031189591_d04681f746_z.jpg

It must be a lovely view when all the heather is blooming.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5624/21834405649_91c9983c2d_z.jpg

We reached the town Kampen then.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/753/22021326535_377c0dc870_z.jpg

Here we crossed to island to get to the opposite coast, the western coast. We saw broad dunes here, with lovely houses hidden in them.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5629/21995124036_c5db0e19e7_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5707/21995124496_e6523a8103_z.jpg

We walked towards the beach then.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5654/21833158970_4ff8f8d9ae_z.jpg

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/589/21399915183_c87465cf1d_z.jpg

Finally the sea came into sight.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/569/22021328645_ea47dc74d7_z.jpg

Here we found a broad sandy beach and a beautiful cliff line.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/680/21995126296_1414a253a7_z.jpg

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/661/21400166803_4834617e8a_z.jpg

We decided to rest for a while in the beach bar you can see in the background.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5830/22021330185_e8a48e55bd_z.jpg

Cheers!

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/644/22030946871_aa4d1514dd_z.jpg

We walked further towards Westerland, the most famous town on this island.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5782/21995128036_1c589b9e56_z.jpg

In Westerland a special event was taking place - the Windsurf World Cup Sylt 2015. The award ceremony was going on when we reached th is place.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5690/21399918023_4bcf3dcddd_z.jpg

The promenade was crowded with people, it was a bit difficult to get through.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5790/21398537164_8fd47726b0_z.jpg

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/737/22021331775_186d69720c_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5747/22021332295_de3063c232_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5660/21833477948_d8312244c0_z.jpg

I found this statue on the promenade of Westerland.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5790/22031196941_e97ec71106_z.jpg

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/698/21833164370_aa4a2ce6f8_z.jpg

My host and her friend were starving, so they only thought of getting something to eat :D

Schleswig, Germany - 5th October 2015

By: olgamaus

Hi Mum,

today we visited Schleswig, a town in the northeastern part of Schleswig-Holstein. The city lies at the western end of the Schlei Förde.The town history of Schleswig goes back to the year 804 when it was mentioned first.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5781/21398540094_e2efe54e2b_z.jpg

We walked along the water and saw the cathedral.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/693/22009036592_68ebf39ba0_z.jpg

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/750/21833480198_986b9567c2_z.jpg

We visited Holm, a historic quater where fishermen once lived and worked. The small houses were lovely.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5693/21833480608_cfcff11de0_z.jpg

Church and churchyard in the centre of the quarter.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5728/22009038052_ee9f6ce6e5_z.jpg

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/612/21398542334_8830fde64c_z.jpg

Next stop was the cathedral.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/709/21995134836_b5be9114a6_z.jpg

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/663/22021337435_fcedf2e6c4_z.jpg

There is an outlook platform in the tower, about 55 m high. Katja took me and _Mishuta_ up there.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5831/21995135926_9845ba65fe_z.jpg

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/577/22009040502_5297840a16_z.jpg

Ah... the harbour!

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5680/21833484398_dc3cb58d2b_z.jpg

Later we strolled through the city for a while.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5738/21400177123_41ed17bf9e_z.jpg

Water from a higher located pond was flowing downhill over this water wheel.

Schwedeneck, Germany - 6th October 2015

By: olgamaus

Hi Mum,

today is the last day of our trip to the Baltic Sea. Tomorrow we will have to go home. So today Katja and her friend wanted to take a walk along the coast outside the Eckernförde Bay. We drove to Schwedeneck, a small place at the coast.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5742/22009042942_716098982f_z.jpg

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/563/21398547064_ab8403971e_z.jpg

Sailing boats were lying on the beach.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5797/21995139306_278e5f5fea_z.jpg

It was rather stormy, the sea churning.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/626/22009044042_08c5ca1ed4_z.jpg

We had to leave the beach and had to walk on the cliff through the forest instead.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/745/21833173950_b596b5d75c_z.jpg

Back on the beach ...

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5622/21398549414_6ff9104ae1_z.jpg

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/641/21834423999_cccd578fd8_z.jpg

Back on the cliff because the waves were overflowing the beach.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/643/21834424609_a0e0a31ee3_z.jpg

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/571/21833176780_a36359789c_z.jpg

Here we left the coastline and walked towards the inland.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/606/21400183743_06805cef9a_z.jpg

We walked through a small village which was surrounded by farmland.

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/705/21400184113_01fae3bf34_z.jpg

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5656/21834426849_6c30eb7213_z.jpg

Later we walked back to the beach and then back to the car.

Wuppertal, at home, Germany - 11th October 2015

By: olgamaus

Hi Mum,

the socks for my owner are done :D Katja told me I did a really good job.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5655/21473157253_e327b342db_z.jpg

Today we packed my things because I will leave tomorrow. Of course I collected some souvenirs, I especially  like the tiny seal wich I bought on the island Sylt.

https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5818/21906119400_7cb450fb2b_z.jpg

My next destination will be Florida!!! This is really great. I said goodbye to _Mishuta_, Katja and the ferrets.

Bye!
