Home, Australia - 11th February 2008

By: gingermuggins

Today is my last day at home. I had some final preparations to do before leaving.

Mum helped me make a sleeping pouch.



Then i wanted to make my traveling envelope look more then just a plain white envelope. Mum has a sticker machine that she let me use.


I dont think it was a good idea. The stickers stuck to me rather well!!!


I then said goodbye to my friends who have kept me company this past week. They are football (aussie rules) bears. The season starts soon so they can't travel around the world.


I'm now ready to visit Magicwoman in the Netherlands. I'm very excited and hope to have many many adventures.

Hi mummy
After my long nap yesterday,i'm ready to do things :)
And my host has a visitor this morning,it was her little cousin and she is 3 years old.She really liked me and she said "aaw she is soo cute"
Offcourse she wants to play with me
oh no..she wrapped me with my own sleeping bag...be careful little girl!!

this girl has really fantastic slippers..she had a pair of ladybird  dutch cloggies  to keep her feet warm that was so cute

Wow my host has a real electric guitar :)
I play on it but it was so diffycult to do

the view out of the window,cant wait to go outside

My host has a surprise for me,she bought some typical dutch candy for me called "drop"
The fist one was disgusting,but later on I eat more "dropjes"and then I started to like them,they are very sweet and a bit bitter
You should try them to mummy

So this was my first morning here in Holland

bye bye

I love eucalyptus,but here in Holland it is not possible that eucalyptus can grow
So after al those  Dutch "dropjes" I eat I really want to have some eucalyptus ,but I can find it
So my host put me on a dutch tree :)
As you can see there is no leaf on it,thats because it is winter here in Holland

My host showed me her moped,it really looked like a motorcycle but it isnt.It is really a moped.And ofcouse she invites me for a ride :)
My host is trying to talk english to me and espially the australian dialect
It feels like home,but her dialect sounds ridiculous  :cyclops:
I really laughed about it

Its really nice to be here
Bye Bye mum

Hi mum
Tomorrow my host Marije has made a delicious breakfast for me.It was a "beschuitje"in English translated as "biscuit rusk"with "Hagelslag"it is a Dutch sandwitch filling,and it are chocolate sprinkels it was delicious,but she had to much butter on it so now i am a bit nauseous

I've met some new friends here,it were all toys who lives here,and offcourse they heard about me,some new Australian guest who has arrived here
Marije had introduced me to them,and as you can see we had a lot of fun

More photos soon

This is an old factory,it was a factory back in de 60s.Nowaday it is an old building.But it is beautiful,but it is a bit deteriorate.This building is build in 1904,but they gonna demolished it soon

Here o
i'm sitting at a Dutch level crossing.
I'm gonna explain what the sign says
When the train comes you hear a sound and the red light is flashing,then you know that the train is approaching and you have to stop for it,also the barriers are coming down
The sign said,"Please wait until the red light is  out,it is possible that there is approaching another train"

another beautiful building

Waiting at the bus in a Dutch bus stop

A Dutch Mill

unfortunately the picture is a bit shaky
but this was the sign that belongs to the mill
The mills name is "keetmolen"
it is build in 1750

eating a dutch "frikandel"it is a typical Dutch meatroll,with mayonnaise
It was delicious :)

at least I was drinking a nice cup of tea in de local bar

pick up the phone at the office
and write something down
