Travelog for: Auggie

Vienna, WV, USA - 21st January 2008

By: MissMelissa

Meet Auggie. Auggie (or Augustus when he's in trouble) is an alien from a distant planet. He began his journey many light years ago when he was launched out of his home planet's atmosphere into the universe. He was pointed in Earth's general direction and began to be pulled in to Earth's gravitational force just hours ago. While free-falling from space, he met up with Steve Perry and the other members of Journey and decided to sky-dive to Earth with them. He landed in my yard shortly after that. Armed only with a letter and a tag with some numbers on it, he informed me I was to send him out into the world so he could learn all about Earthly culture until he goes to live with his human sponsor, Hank. Hank will be two when Auggie goes to live with him, where they will no doubt be good pals.


Auggie is looking to visit all over the world and see the various monuments, people, festivals, architecture and weird "Earth-y" things your town has to offer. Auggie likes anything fun, odd or unique about where you live. An official WorldTrip book will be made after his journey closes with any souvenirs and photographs of all of the excellent places Auggie pops up.

West Virginia, USA - 22nd January 2008

By: MissMelissa

Auggie is patiently waiting his departure. I think he's bored. It snowed a little bit, so he decided to build a snowman. Well, it was more of a slush man, it was getting pretty melty. But Auggie had a good time and enjoyed learning how to engineer a man made of precipitation.

Vienna, WV, USA - 23rd January 2008

By: MissMelissa

Well, Auggie is on his way to visit Mizzery in Germany for a little while. I'll miss his little face and the rest of the little ones threw him a surprise party. They forgot to take into account that he is an alien and has no idea what a surprise party is. When they all yelled "Surprise!", Auggie ran and hid under the bed. The cake with candles also proved to be a struggle because he felt very threatened by the fire. It all turned out well, and in the end they got a lovely group picture before Auggie ate the banner.

His travel plans are as follows:

Mizzery-Germany(HAD A WONDERFUL TIME, THANK YOU!)
Mood-France (THANKS, MOOD! HAD A GREAT TIME!)
Steve & Helly-United Kingdom (HAD A GREAT TIME, THANKS!)
Jiles-The Netherlands(ARRIVED!)
heyknithappens-Indianapolis



WILL VISIT LATER:
MissNadine-Russia
Kristl-Russia

Greven, Germany - 5th February 2008

By: Mizzery

Hello!

Today, Auggie arrived save in Germany! He was really really tired by his journey in the tiny envelop and he was glad to come out. Immediatey he showed us the letter which accompanies him to give us some information about himself and his trip. Auggie is the nicest Alien I've ever met!

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2336/2261064070_34ee59acd7.jpg
And I'm sure we will have a lot of fun together!

The first thing Auggie wanted to do in Germany was to lern how to say hello in german as he wanted to send greetings to a special friend.

Enschede, The Netherlands - 9th February 2008

By: Mizzery

Auggie needed a few days of rest after his journey and we decided to make the first special trip with him on Saturday.

We were very happy to welcome another toyvoyager, Alfred, the same day, and we were even more happy to see they became friends immediately!

Auggie showed Alfred the whole apartment and the places he likes most. 


http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2410/2261067784_927f1e30a5.jpg


http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2101/2261066254_f2b94d957f.jpg


Unfortunately, our cats weren't that happy with the choice Auggie and Alfred made for their place to rest.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2256/2261066868_5e69f8528f.jpg

So Auggie and Alfred continued their tour through the apartment. Both were a little scared by the decoration of the living room and wanted to hide but we explained that their's no reason to be frightened as the swords on the wall are just part of our equipment for our historial reenactment group.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2306/2260272927_ebbc22e1fe.jpg

And then it was already time to start our trip to the Netherlands. Auggi and Alfred were very excited to be in two different countries on one day!

The drive by car to Enschede was very long and the two boys needed a little break so we decided to make a little stop and go for a walk for a moment.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2252/2261062192_3974c5d950.jpg

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2161/2261062606_5403f0bcaf.jpg

The first thing we saw in Enschede was a really really big red shoe. Auggie was scared, he thought they have giants in the Netherlands and he wanted to hide in my bag.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2071/2261063648_8a48147976.jpg

But he calmed down and he and Alfred tried to learn more about the Netherlands by reading the newspaper.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2046/2260270845_39e608e72a.jpg

What they liked best was not the famous market in Enschede we visited but a pretty huge wallpainting.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2247/2260270629_da3b17301f.jpg

When we returned to our apartment, the two little ones were soooo tired and they immediately fall asleep.

Münster, Germany - 15th February 2008

By: Mizzery

After a few days chilling at home, we planned a trip to Münster, a pretty big town close to Greven.

So they had to say goodbye to their new friends (a little bunch of dragons) to accompanie me to the city.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2385/2261067270_f78ebdda12.jpg

As Auggie wanted to see more of the countryside of the region we decided to go by train instead of going by car.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2014/2269968464_125499e6c2.jpg

One thing, thats very special about Münster is that we have many many churches here. The people always say in Münster either the church bells are ringing or its raining!

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2408/2269966958_2265a8311f.jpg

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2272/2269178799_685990cafb.jpg

Next thing we visited the castle, next to the university of Münster.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2303/2269973860_d3bffcc023.jpg

We spend some minutes walking through the castle gardens and afterwards went to " das blaue Haus" (the blue house) a famous restaurant here in Münster.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2027/2269184513_37bc5cf0ca.jpg

Soon the little toyvoyagers were very tired by the long walk and we paused at a fountain.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2108/2269975636_2c4d5f46bf.jpg

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2269/2269967462_d77475dcdd.jpg

But we weren't finished with our trip yet. After the break we made our way to the city hall. It's a very very old building in the center of Münster. It's kind of amazing that such old buildings are next to the modern ones and the shopping streets.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2196/2269181563_1cfbeeca62.jpg

Auggie noticed even more churches than I showed him. In the back around of this picture again: a church.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2051/2269970376_1a8ded731d.jpg

Auggie also learnd a few more words German! A "Kirche" is a church, a city hall is called "Rathaus" here in Germany and Hello how are you is "Hello, wie geht es Dir?" in German.

Greven, Germany - 17th February 2008

By: Mizzery

This week the weather is very bad so we had to stay at home.

But that shouldn't be a problem there are so many funny things to do at home.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2297/2289047304_d78c5a9c72.jpg

At first we played a little hide and seek....

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3081/2289052564_a598f3222b.jpg

It really wasn't easy to find him!

And Auggie was really surprised that we have sooo  many dragons here in Germany...

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2075/2288265363_f8ef08ecf1.jpg

Afterwards I had to do some housework... but fortunately, all toyvoyagers helped me... they are really good in finding the pairs of the single socks...

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3147/2288266219_e716ef4b81.jpg

Greven, Germany - 20th February 2008

By: Mizzery

Today it kept on raining and we thought about what to do...

We decided to draw a few paintings. I can say some of the Toyvoyagers are really talented! As took them a few hours to finish the paintings but with a little teamwork they achieved it. I think they can be really proud!

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3186/2289063224_94ab159519.jpg

Then I decided to teach Auggie and the others a little German.
And with the help of the dictionarys they learn a few sentences.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2325/2288267617_04105de18b.jpg

I'm on holidays in Germany - Ich mache Urlaub in Deutschland
I'm a Toyvoyager - Ich bin ein Toyvoyager
I travel around the whole world - Ich reise um die ganze Welt

But to study the whole day is to boring and Auggie wanted to listen to some German music to see how much he can understand.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3168/2288266923_863daac070.jpg

In the evening we wanted to watch a DVD but it was really hard to get them to decide on ONE movie. Unfortunately I don't have a movie with aliens, dogs, marmots and bears all in one...

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2117/2289049484_9188e0414d.jpg

Greven, Germany - 22nd February 2008

By: Mizzery

Now, Auggie and the others are well acquainted with our cats and they are even allowed to share the bed with them!

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2178/2289050200_ffb8825710.jpg

They are good friends now!

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3108/2288259643_9a6032097d.jpg

But you can't stay in bed all day. So we made a toyvoyagers battle on playstation.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2302/2288263673_914a5bfded.jpg

To sad, Auggie isn't good in playing such games... his armes are toooo short.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3092/2288270719_8a625d5264.jpg

That's why we decided to do something everyone can do: we started to read for a little while.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2004/2289060648_fd48f58b8c.jpg

Greven, Germany - 24th February 2008

By: Mizzery

As it's the last day Auggie and Alred are spending with us, we wanted to show them part of our postcrossing collection because they wanted to know where they are going next. They were so fascinated by the cards that they started to build a card house. They started with a small one...

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3065/2288271461_eb9bd42757.jpg

and then they made it higher and higher...

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3080/2289062530_dc3d302e68.jpg

but it's not easy to build a card house when a little cat is around...

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3170/2288268493_00c66d58a3.jpg

So, unfortunately all broke down before they had achieved to build a house of all cards..

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3149/2288261019_dd3de3913d.jpg

But then it was time to say goodbye for Auggie and Alfred, so we made one last visit to Siggi who's a huge Viking worrior living in our apartment.

Toulouse, France - 22nd March 2008

By: Mood

You remember that one of my missions is to meet 5 different earth animals ... so today, I have decided to go and explore the countryside, looking for some specimens...
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2275/2350303280_83a8d61b43.jpg?v=0
I thought I had found one, but when I tried to be in contact with it ... nothing ...only a very good fragrance.

Just after it, I felt so strange ?? as if I had traveled miles away, anf found myself in a cool and warm place ...
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3177/2370413885_c89946b536.jpg?v=0

You say cool I think ??

In fact, Mood told me it was Californian poppy...
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3097/2350302986_2aecfd155b.jpg?v=0


Then after an hour walking : my very first close encounter with an earth animal !!! Look !! just behind me...!
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3092/2350301194_d4d686471e.jpg?v=0
Well ... once again, I try to talk to him, but nothing ... I even tried to call him "Médor" as I've heard people call their pets this way, but still no answer ... I suppose I'll never know  what kind of animal it was... anyway ...  when I left, I just heard some kind of growl ...
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2124/2350297394_bf51aa6607.jpg?v=0

We had a new guest today :
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3189/2371246814_c44a05a555.jpg?v=0

coming from Switzerland, his name is Robinson

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3086/2370411551_15755910fe.jpg?v=0

He's a parrot, that is to say, he repeats everything all the time. It's his job ...!
As we are going to spend time together, we have decided to try to know each other better. Blue Rat had the idea, so he took a white board, and we began to draw about us... Here is my family (mum and dad):
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3012/2380346950_b1580a8743.jpg?v=0

As I wanted to learn more about the animal I met the other day, I draw this picture :
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3025/2380351580_bf785f0388.jpg?v=0

They just laughed ... and I still don't know about it ...
Anyway, I could learn how to say hello in 3 different languages, look !

1/ German:
