Toulouse, France - 9th September 2007

By: Mistigree

Today I went to see the Garonne. It is the river that crosses Toulouse.
http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1349/1384909361_4b3c40490b.jpg?v=0

From the "Pont-Neuf" brigde, we can see "la prairie des filtres". It is the name of one of the Garonne's bank, where people go to relax or just to wander.
http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1302/1384909371_f8a4b9a7d2.jpg?v=0

I read that at the begining of the XX century, la prairie des filtres had many different functions : it was used for planes landings, agricultural fairs, rugby matches, allotments, or even sheeps pastures !
http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1330/1384909353_03deb35400.jpg?v=0

I had a rest in the grass near the water, it was so fresh (the sun was high this day !!)
The bridge you can perceive behind me is Le Pont-Neuf, the oldest bridge of Toulouse.
http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1309/1384909343_b63d4d343d.jpg?v=0

And this is "le dôme de la Grave" (La Grave was an hospital). Some years ago, Mistigree was living just in front of it !!
http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1407/1384909377_6732cde15f.jpg?v=0

Then I went to see "l'église des Jacobins", one of the churches of Toulouse.
http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1169/1384909385_dc0979d845.jpg?v=0 http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1173/1384915347_bce85ecfe3.jpg?v=0

Here is the entrance.

And the inside of the church where the stained-glass are reflected on walls and pillars.

Post office, Toulouse, France - 8th October 2007

By: Mistigree

Today was my last day in France (maybe until the next time, who knows ?)... I'm now on my way to Germany where I'm going to meet The Sparkle !
Before Mistigree took me to the post office, she wrote some words in Szandra's notebook and I helped her sticking a stamp coming from the envelope in which I arrived in France so that Szandra will have a nice notebook full of stamps !

Bad Bentheim, Germany - 20th October 2007

By: The Sparkle

The sun is shining so Alfie Langer and i are going to see the garden and his hidden tressurs.


http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2295/1651914832_5c611890d4.jpg?v=0
First we where enjoying the sun to get a nice brown color.


http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2103/1651046843_665c6bdce0.jpg?v=0
Than i looked around in the garden and found this beautiful verry late rose. My host told me he is flowering for the 3th time this year.


http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2285/1651915570_dc705a74a5.jpg?v=0
Than i found a old bike so i can lift my paw and give it some smelly water.


http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2389/1651047593_7fad5cb376.jpg?v=0
Then i was sitting in the basket in front of the bike. I hoped someone will take me for a nice tour in this little village.


http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2360/1651048053_3ba232611e.jpg?v=0
Alfie was trying to ride the bike but he was to little.
Then our host told us that this bike is for staying in the garden because it is old and not save to ride anymore.

Assen, Netherlands - 30th December 2007

By: The Sparkle

Today me and Galen did some geocachings with our host and her boyfriend.
They love geocaching because your are outside and can walk with a goal or can take a ride to a place and find a hidden treasure.



http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2275/2148807543_d5bdde65b8.jpg
The first place we visit today is a geocache on a special place. This place is a memorable place. In oct 1943 a Englisch plain on his way back from bombing Leipzig (D) crash here.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2132/2149601622_c002e215ea.jpg
This wing of this monument is a gift from the Britisch Airforce to give the monument his look as it looks today.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2341/2148807809_bbae0eaf5e.jpg
Our host her boyfriend found this first cache for today. We take a look what was inside the treasure. We love all the nice goodies.


http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2182/2149826546_653e113528_o.jpg
This is on our way to the third cache off today. Galen has to stay in the car so i can have some time for me alone and have some different pictures.
On this picutere you can see a river looking water that is crossing this city called Assen. Their are a lot off waters like this in this aeria because in the history they use it to move Turf to other places.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2058/2149826788_a1abf3a030_o.jpg
The view form the cache place.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2112/2149034589_f851ecac01_o.jpg
Me and the cache. In this cache their is only some papper to lleave a note that you made a visit.


http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2216/2149836106_1a08f2f1a9.jpg
This was the las cache we did today also on a memoral place.
because of the evening it was a bite spooky and also because what was happend here.
a month befor the end of WOII the Germann Army killed 10 people here.


I think i helped my host and her boyfriend like a good doggie with finding those treasures.

By: tarepanda

I am in Miami now!! I am so excited.

Today our host take us to visit a fancy outdoors shopping mall called The Village of Merrick Park, in Coral Gables, one of the most affluent neighborhood in the U.S.  How about that?  We didn't do any shopping there, but the place is very well tended and the garden is beautiful with lots of statues and flowers.

Sometimes children play in the fountain here but today it is quiet.

Tonight we go to a fondue dinner.  I don't remember ever doing it so it is a lot of fun.

First is the cheese fondue.  The server whips the cheese into a pot of wine until it melts.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5522.jpg

We then dip some bread into the pot of melted cheese.  It's so delicious!!

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5524.jpg

Then we have dessert, the chocolate fondue!!!  Look at this plate of marshmallow, cake, strawberries, banana and more!!!  I don't even know where to start.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5533.jpg

This strawberry sure looks yummy!!  We have a really good time.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5569.jpg

We see some catamarans on the beach.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5567.jpg

Look, someone is going out there in one.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/Miami%2008/IMG_5566.jpg

We decide to just sit on the sand and sunbathe a little.

Montreal, Canada - 25th July 2008

By: tarepanda

Today my host put us in her backpack and tells us that we will be traveling.  When we pop out of the backpack, we find out that we are in an airplane!  Of course we get very excited!!  We ask her where we are going but she says it's a surprise.  Oh well, we decide to settle down and read some magazine to pass the time.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/montreal/IMG_5581.jpg

Looking out of the little window we can see the strip.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/montreal/IMG_5583.jpg

And other airplanes.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/montreal/IMG_5594.jpg

We are taking off!  Look how small the houses and roads look!

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/montreal/IMG_5587.jpg

We are higher than the clouds!

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/montreal/IMG_5590.jpg

I wonder where we are going?

Finally we land.  Mocha thinks he hears some French.  Both of us have traveled to France so we speak a little French. So we are in France now?  Wow!  But when we look out, we realize it's not France.  Turns out we are in Montreal, Canada!  I haven't been to Canada before so I am excited!!

Today we go to the Jean Talon Farmers Market.  There are a lot of interesting shops.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/montreal/IMG_5604.jpg

This one is a cheese shop, with lots of cheeses from the local region.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/montreal/IMG_5603.jpg

This one is famous for its ice creams. 

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/montreal/IMG_5608.jpg

Look at all the pretty flowers.

http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u314/azuki726/toy%20voyagers/montreal/IMG_5612.jpg

The fruits and vegetables are so inexpensive and delicious.  They look much nicer than the ones in supermarket.
