Moscow, Russia - 13th March 2008

By: kristl

Hey-hey, today we've made a great sightseeing tour in the Moscow centre!!

We walked in the small street right in the centre when we saw (just near us!!) a fire in a house (there were many fire engines and many people) - we went from this place as soon as possible. It was there - you can still see the smoke..


The photo is taken prom a small square near the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour



The Kremlin can be seen from this place:


And in that direction is the Moscow-River:

Then we went to The Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, I saw a funny pigeon there:


All the pupels are use to visit this museum, there are alot of interesting things there, but almost all of them are copies of famous artworks, good for studying, I think



It's strange, but from here the Cathedral is seen very good!

We wanted to visit Kremlin, but it was closed cause it was Thurthday :(

I studied the plan of Kremlin in details to be able to find there everything I want if I get there one day.


Then we went to the Red Square


Behind me you can see the Nikolskaya Tower and the State Historical Museum.

Here is GUM - the most famous shopping centre in Moscow:


In front of it there was a skating rink but now it's being removed.

The walls of Kremlin:


The Spasskaya Tower:

The Saint Basil's Cathedral:




Another wall of Kremlin and more towers:

Bruchsal, Germany - 18th March 2008

By: fam-united

Hi mum,
I'm here in Bruchsal now and already met many other toyvoyagers. Petra said, that we - AliG and I arrived together - brought sunny weather to Bruchsal. So maybe she will go out with us at once to get some nice photos with interesting places.



We already had some fun together. You know, it is springtime and we all are a bit hilarious. I'm not sure, how Petra will handle this ;)




After we built this toyvoyager pyramid (have I every seen another here???), we sat down - yes, we really just sat down quietly- and listened to Holiday Harry, who told us many news about Bruchsal. It was kind of sitting in school and listening to a teacher. Petra said, that she really wondered, how Holiday Harry, this crazy monkey, remembered so much about this place. I'm really curious to see more of Bruchsal in reality now.

First Petra told us everything and HolidayHarry jumped behind our backs like crazy.
This photo shows the Damian's Gate. It's the northern entrance to the palace area.

This photo shows the palace and the rooms inside. The palace was destroyed during the second world war, 80% of Bruchsal's buildings had been destroyed. The palace was rebuilt during the 70th. In the south wing of the palace the parish of St.Damian and Hugo has its church with a modern interior.

We all thought, that it is silly to take photos, where everyone can see only us toyvoyagers and the real photos only while making a handstand, so we asked Petra to take the photos standing behind us and letting Holiday Harry explain everything. He just couldn't sit quietly enough, so he had something to do now and he seemed really proud of it.

HolidayHarry told us, that there are concerts in the palace sometimes. And there is an exhibition of Mechanical Musical Instruments.

There are several events in front of the palace during spring and summer.

One of these events is the summerday procession in May, when they burn the snowman in front of the palace.

The carnival procession is especially interesting, because you can listen to the crazy music called "Guggemusik" - a music, which even Holiday Harry had been unable to explain. On the right page you see the baroque church St. Peter and the arm of Bruchsal. The flags of Bruchsal are in front of the old town hall.

Each Wednesday and Saturday there is a market in Bruchsal, where you can buy fresh fruit and vegetables and flowers. You can also buy plants for the garden.

On the left side you see the limestone building of the Pallottines' private grammar school St. Paulusheim, built in 1923.

The Belvedere, a former hunting lodge, was built in 1758. It serves a very fitting background for open-aur plays.

This left building is really interesting, but not easy to take a photo with it. It is the men's prison of Bruchsal, built in 1841 and called "Café Octagon".

The baroque church St. Peter: Cardinal Schönborn began the building in 1740 and Cardinal Hutten completed it and had the interior finished. The architect was Balthasar Neumann from Würzburg. The church holds the remains of the last prince-bishop in a cryp.

I'm not sure, if I remember that all, when I will see the places in real, but we can give it a try. Petra told us, sometimes it is better to hear things twice, because then we can remember them more easily.

Bruchsal, Germany - 24th March 2008

Hi mum!

We all thought, that we maybe would have better weather now. It started to be so nice, when we arrived here in Bruchsal, but I think, that I have to travel to a far away place to stay in the warmth. It is only warm in the house, when Petra heats the oven in their livingroom. Yes, and today it was really warm in the kitchen, because we all helped to bake a biscuit. It was really crowded in the kitchen.

This was the place we had to sit down at first, because Petra had to get everything prepared.


Then everyone was allowed to hold the stirrer for a while. Wow, I think, if Petra wouldn't had been there to help me, it could have been really dangerous for me. I had been trembling from head to toe.

Then I wanted to help to stir the flour under the dough.

While we waited for the cake get ready in the oven, we wanted to walk into the garden to take a look at the flowers there.





This is the basket, in which Petra carries us around, when she takes us to other places in her house. She says, it is the only way to carry so many toyvoyagers. If you wonder about the amount of toyvoyagers, that are here right now: Petra just started to find several hosts in Asia, Africa and South America. And now she activated many toyvoyagers and of course she wants to make some updates, before they start their travels. It is really exciting to hear about the places, which they plan to visit soon.

Finally the cake was ready - ok, not really ready, I suppose. Petra talked something about butter cream and chocolate icing. So I will see, how the cake looks like later.

Hi mum
here is a big big toyvoyager meeting now. I had been very surprised, when I saw all these other toyvoyager crawl out of the package, that arrived today. Of course we knew, that some other toyvoyagers will arrive, so we were very excited, when the postman rang at the door.
Now we are 13 toyvoyagers:
Florence, Tilda, Mingus Moose, Josh, Chokito, Davy, Tortilla and Bullet arrived today and you surely remember, that Amara Anthea, (Playmo)Bill, AliG, HolidayHarry, Pebbels and I had been here for a while already.
I think, it would be a good time to have a party now and I saw, that Petra baked some muffins today. Maybe we can ask her to throw a party for us tomorrow???

Hurray!!! Hurray!!!

We had a little party today!!!

We had some snacks and water to drink and a lot to laugh about, of course. Dogs became friends with cats, a turtle with a kangaroo, a monkey with a moose and more.

We played with a big and a small ball and we learned how to play the card game "Mau Mau".

Didn't the table look nice?

Mingus Moose prefered to sit on the ballon.

(Playmo)Bill decided to not eat anything, because he was afraid to be too thick for his hobby.

Bullet wanted all the peanuts for himself.

Coco first had been a bit sad, because there was no honey on the table, but she liked the gouda then.

How did (Playmo)Bill come to that peanut? Maybe he asked Mingus Moose???

HolidayHarry had been really thirsty after eating a lot of sweets.

Florence is very hungry and wants to try a chocolate banana muffin.

Pebbels thought, that the Harry Potter muffin looked nice. It was a muffin with blueberries. I took the chocolate banana muffin too.

Amara Anthea tried a muffin american style, just on with chocolate drops.

AliG seemed to play the detective. What did he expect to find out today???

Do you see how happy Tortilla and Josh look with this dish filled with gummi bears?

Chokito, Davy and Schnuffi shared another Harry Potter muffin.

Only Hasi prefered something healthy - she wanted to eat a carrot.

Tilda hadn't been sure, whether she should try a "nimm 2 " or whether it is better to eat a carrot too.

Then we started playing with balls. At first we choose the Australian ball, but it was so big, that the little toyvoyager among us had big problems.



Later we decided to use a table tennis ball, which of course is much easier to play with.





At last we learned how to play "Mau Mau".




Our first winner was: Chokito

Second place: Bullet

Third place: Hasi

Fourth place: Pebbels

Today was one of the rare sunny days. Petra came home from school and packed her rucksack to show us some places in Bruchsal. She didn't have so much time for it, because she had to go back to school for a teachers' meeting.

Here you see the backfront of the palace.

This is the Feldkirchle (field chapel)

Next to the Feldkirchle (field chapel) you see this cross
and this beautiful flowers

Bruchsal, Germany - 4th April 2008

Today it's time for baking cakes for my host's mum's birthday. She is 70 years now and Petra was asked to bake two cakes: Donauwellenkuchen (Danube waves cake) and Zebrakuchen (zebra cake). Petra decided to bake a surprise cake too, with a part of the Happy Birthday song.

We sat all together watching and helping Petra with preparing the dough.


So here are the photos with me. If you are interested in recipes, I can try to ask Petra to write them here or send them to you.









Finally the cakes are ready

The nougat cream cake:
only the words "Happy birthday" have to be put on the cake now.

The Zebra-cake

Somehow we miss the last photo of the Danube waves cake, the one with the cherries.
