Harvie’s first trip away from home (Virginia) and first time flying.

Destination: Colorado Springs, CO

Garden of Gods located at the base of Pikes Peak; unique rock formation. Harvie had a great time hiking, climbing on red rocks and enjoying the awesome view.

Harvie couldn't sleep Saturday night; knowing tomorrow he's going on train ride up Pike's Peak. Pike's Peak Cog Railway is the world's highest cog railroad in the United States.

Leidschendam, The Netherlands - 15th July 2008

By: Charda

Today I arrived in the Netherlands! It is my first trip to Europe and I am so excited! This is my first view of my host's home. I only saw the ceiling at first, but then I saw four friendly faces right next to me.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3058/2671754846_0f67f28e10.jpg?v=0
All of them are really kind and they were trying to tell me about their adventures as ToyVoyagers all at the same time, so I hope they'll calm down a bit and then we can talk a little together. This is all of us together.

By: Charda

Today a ToyVoyager arrived! But apparently it wasn't a new one, but one owned by our host Charda! Tiah Tigris will be here for a short stay-over until she is ready to travel onwards to Australia! She's a very sweet girl.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3008/2682680604_a4fcbd09f8.jpg?v=0
And here are some pictures to show you that we're not bored over here. Here we're reading a Donald Duck. It's entirely in Dutch, but we can look at the pictures and Tiah translates for us.

Jason passed by and asked if we wanted to play with the ball with him. Of course we wanted to!

There was a rainbow outside this evening! Our host spotted it from inside, grabbed her camera and told us to come along. You can see it here all the way from the left side...

Look, this is what we ate today. No, it's not very healthy indeed, but it sure tasted great. It's croquettes made of potatoes, kipnuggets, a cheese soufflé and apple/strawberry sauce. And yes, the soda is indeed green :)

We thought this was a very funny picture. The text says: 'The polar bears are back'. I don't think this ostrich is very happy with the situation.

And look at these small geese. They're still so small and fuzzy :)

Oosterhout, The Netherlands - 24th July 2008

By: Charda

Yesterday was a really special day. We went to visit Charda's grandmother in Oosterhout in the South of the country. We even stayed for the night. Here we are on the train on our way there.

Today we walked through the village of Oosterhout. We first met these deer in a small park.

This statue is in honour of all the men who are fifty years old. Apparently they have the tradition in this town to visit this statue once a year with all the fifty-year-old men. The mayor is also there and he will give a speech. And after that they will party together ;)

Almere, The Netherlands - 28th July 2008

By: Charda

Last weekend we went to a friend of our host in a town called Almere in the middle of the country. We didn't take too many pictures there, since we mainly watched television and relaxed there, but I do have some pictures to show you :)
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3017/2711951472_104fa2413c.jpg?v=0
This is me on a Dutch train. The houses you see behind me are in Amsterdam.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3231/2711952028_c53da21695.jpg?v=0
Since it was really warm weather all weekend long, we sat outside in the garden. The mother of our host's friend had just cleaned up the garden and had taken away all the weeds, so don't you think it looks pretty?

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3121/2711953634_9dd79fbffa.jpg?v=0
Here we pose together with the dog that lives there. Her name is Buffie. Yes, as in the Vampire Slayer. Now, this was not a vampire slayer, she was pretty sweet, but she did look at us like she wanted to eat us. And apparently that's what she usually does to her toys :o
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3043/2711953866_768f60f19c.jpg?v=0
Since it was really warm all weekend long, we lay down in this comfy chair for a little while. The sun had already gone away, but it was still pretty nice like this :)

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3130/2711142325_1aee52f2b3.jpg?v=0
And because it was so warm, we got to share an icecream! It was vanilla icecream with strawberry sauce.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3282/2711954604_1a0326a5f9.jpg?v=0
We met this giant Dora in the guestroom where we slept. And do you know what's so great about her? She speaks English! She teaches all the little Dutch children how to speak English. "Let's go!"

Leiden, The Netherlands - 29th July 2008

By: Charda

Today was another exciting day. Do we get any rest around here? We went to Leiden today. Our host had some errands to run there and we tagged along. Ceryni had already been there, but not me. We went by bus and this was the first statue we saw once we arrived. A statue of Rembrandt!
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2135/2714639764_b92584b1c0.jpg?v=0
Right behind the statue of Rembrandt was this nice building. Inside the building is a secondary school.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3253/2713826527_dce0b0a00d.jpg?v=0
This was at the other side of the street.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3044/2714640512_0dab946405.jpg?v=0
Here was yet another statue about Rembrandt.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3062/2714640812_60a6631318.jpg?v=0
And another painting of Rembrandt :) Apparently Rembrandt was born in this city. That's why there are so many statues of him everywhere.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3042/2713827727_15fa170a91.jpg?v=0
Look! This is me with a real Dutch windmill :)
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2235/2714641548_1301d936b0.jpg?v=0

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3069/2713828387_93ba1ae85f.jpg?v=0

Since it's my life mission to visit universities, my host took some pictures of me with her university, Leiden University it is called. It is the oldest university in the Netherlands. My host is a part-time student of English Language and Culture and this is the building where she has her classes. The building is called 'Lipsius'.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3049/2714642034_53ef440b5c.jpg?v=0

This university is not situated on one campus, but it has different buildings throughout the city.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3096/2714642172_9603d9fd28.jpg?v=0

This is the university library:
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3278/2713828879_7829f1657c.jpg?v=0

This is the other side of the Lipsius building.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3035/2714642400_7440dbdbdb.jpg?v=0

These buildings hold the smaller faculties, one of which is English. That is where the professors have their offices and the daytime students sometimes have classes in these buildings.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3046/2713829097_227b743933.jpg?v=0

This building is the 'Kamerlingh Omnes Gebouw' (gebouw is Dutch for building). This is where the law-faculty resides, so this is where our host's boyfriend gets his classes.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3097/2714642638_cb59357a44.jpg?v=0
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3260/2714642758_e7a5b16422.jpg?v=0


Here I am in front of the Pieterskerk. Unfortunately lots of construction men were working on this building, so we couldn't get a better picture than this, if we wanted a picture without scaffolding. Do you see the picture with the two keys over the door? That's the coat of arms of Leiden.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3208/2713829473_b60cb84212.jpg?v=0

This is all of us on a cache, a real geocache. This is where we left the travelbug that was sent to our host via Postcrossing. Our host had found this cache last year, so she walked straight to it, without a GPS this time.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3217/2713829919_17f59145c9.jpg?v=0

Just look at these houses. They're so typically Dutch.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3045/2714644186_7d41ff46b0.jpg?v=0

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3124/2714644488_5322fb320c.jpg?v=0

Here we walked by another building that belongs to the university. My host thought this was where the library used to be. The flags look pretty cool :)
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3163/2714650364_5c3084b87d.jpg?v=0

And then there was a surprise when we got home. Two new TVs were waiting for us! Their names are Resi and Chipper.

Lisse, The Netherlands - 3rd August 2008

By: Charda

Last weekend we went camping. Our host was a First Aid volunteer at an event called 'Castlefest'. Our host didn't have much time to take a lot of pictures, but she took some, so you can see where we've been. Since we were camping at the location, this is everything we had to bring. Luckily we went by car this time.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/IMG_3773.jpg
On the first day we met this cute thermos. It was strange. I think this penguin would prefer cold drinks, but he contained coffee!
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/IMG_3781.jpg
These weapons are used in LARP, which stands for Live Action Role Play. These swords are covered in foam so that they don't hurt if you get hit by them.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/IMG_3784.jpg
This horse looks so cool!
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/IMG_3785.jpg
This construction is a 'stool of witches'. Here you can be tested whether or not you are a witch.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/IMG_3787.jpg
Here you can see the main stage. This is where many bands performed during the weekend. Among the bands that performed there were 'Omnia' and 'The Transsylvanians'.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/IMG_3793.jpg
In the First Aid tent we met this nice couple. They look pretty cool, right?

This tree had a man in it! Or was it a treant? I don't know exactly what it was, but he had this really dark grumbly voice.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/IMG_3820.jpg
The Wickerman statue was burnt on Saturday evening. Unfortunately we weren't there at that moment, because we had to stay in the First Aid tent.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/IMG_3822.jpg
These helmets and weapons were for sale.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/IMG_3825.jpg
I think this man was hung there as a warning for others. It looked pretty frightening to me!
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/IMG_3827.jpg
The polar man and this dog looked pretty good together, but the man was only posing with the dog.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/IMG_3830.jpg

http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/IMG_3834.jpg
Here I am in the First Aid tent. There was this one place where they had this big basket with Giant Microbes. We even saw some siblings of the TV Synapse. Here I am posing with the Giant Microbes that the First Aid people bought.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/IMG_3842.jpg
I don't feel that comfortable here between mange and louse.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/IMG_3843.jpg
I hope I don't catch a cold, or chickenpox.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/IMG_3845.jpg
These are the materials they worked with this weekend.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/IMG_3846.jpg
This is one of the two beds used for patients.

http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/IMG_3848.jpg
Suddenly we heard this loud roaring outside of the tent. What could it be? Oh no, it was a real dragon! But our host told us that this was a trained dragon and it was safe to pose with him. Well, I didn't feel too comfortable so close to him.

And now we're back home, safe in Leidschendam again, far away from knights, goblins and dragons. Phew, I think I'm gonna need some rest to recover from this weekend.

Leidschendam, The Netherlands - 4th August 2008

By: Charda

Today Ceryni left us. He has been with us for a very long time and he has seen many things. He has been to London, Amsterdam, Leiden, Ommen, Lisse and Almere. That's quite a journey for one TV!

Yolanda found it especially hard to say goodbye to Ceryni. She became quite attached to him.

Ceryni is now on his way back home! Safe travels, Ceryni!
