Sülfeld, Germany - 2nd May 2009

By: RikeH

Hi Mum,

today we explored Sülfeld, where Rike lives.

Here is a nice small lake,

the old school,

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Murph/IMG_6662.jpg

and a beautiful church.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Murph/IMG_6669.jpg

Then we helped Rike to plant some flowers.

It was a nice sunny day, so we relaxed in the grass.  :p

Lübeck , Germany - 4th May 2009

By: RikeH

Hi Mum,
we went to Lübeck. It is a nice city – in 1987 the Unesco declared the existing cityscape to be a World Cultural Heritage Site. 

First we saw the Holsten Gate – it was on the 50-DM-bank-note of Germany. But now they have the Euro here.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Murph/IMG_6681.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Murph/IMG_6692.jpg

Next to the Gate are the Salt Warehouses and other nice buildings.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Murph/IMG_6689.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Murph/IMG_6685.jpg

Then we climbed up the tower of the St. Peter’s Church. We had a lovely view of the city – but it was very stormy…

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Murph/IMG_6705.jpg

Then we saw some other nice buildings.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Murph/IMG_6708.jpg

It was a nice time !

When we arrived at home, a new ToyVoyager was waiting for us - he is called Lupus-Tigger and we talked a lot !

Sülfeld, Germany - 7th May 2009

By: RikeH

When we sat in our armchair today – a new TV arrived. She is called Kunigunde
and is a friendly little pig.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Kunigunde/IMG_6734.jpg

Because we were hungry we ate a big Pizza,

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Kunigunde/IMG_6731.jpg

but it was to big for us...  :(

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Kunigunde/IMG_6733.jpg

Then Rike took us to the playground.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Kunigunde/IMG_6738.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Murph/IMG_6742.jpg

We had a lot of fun together.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Kunigunde/IMG_6747.jpg

Now we will talk about our adventures.

Hello Mom!

Happy mothers day!

We had a nice lazy week-end and played with a beautiful yellow balloon.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Tigger/IMG_6797.jpg

around Sülfeld, Germany - 13th May 2009

By: RikeH

We made a trip with the bike today.
The nice yellow fields are typical for Northern Germany at this time of the year. The plant is called rape we think, in German it is Raps, a funny word.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Murph/IMG_6798.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Murph/IMG_6799.jpg

Then we saw this nice maypole…

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Murph/IMG_6811.jpg

…and made a rest next to a lovely lake. We all had fun together.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/BineHH/IMG_6817.jpg

In the evening we said good-bye to TobiHH, because he will start his trip to Finland now.

Hamburg, Germany - 16th May 2009

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

this afternoon was a special one. I didn’t walk through the beautiful countryside of Suelfeld, play with the other TVs or watch television. No, I did one of my missions: I went into a gym to lift weights.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Murph/Gym01.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Murph/Gym02.jpg

After driving to Rikes Gym in Hamburg I was there – behind this window are the apparatus.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Murph/Gym03.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Murph/Gym04.jpg

Oh, Mum, that was so exiting! Now I was into the gym with all the fitness equipment!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Murph/Gym05.jpg

Which one should I take? Did I work with the legpress? … no, that’s too easy, I wanted to practise my arms!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Murph/Gym06.jpg

Now I looked for long-dumbbells – should I take the fixed …

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Murph/Gym07.jpg

… or one of the movable dumbbells?

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Murph/Gym08.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Murph/Gym09.jpg


Just as well I could take one of these beautiful short-dumbbells!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Murph/Gym10.jpg

After thinking for a short time I decided for a 35 kg = 77 lb short-dumbbell.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Murph/Gym11.jpg

Mum, 35 kg or 77 lb are very, very heavy! I lifted the dumbbell for you!!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Murph/Gym12.jpg

After that sporting afternoon I was happy to lie in the garden doing nothing!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/Murph/Gym13.jpg

Ahrensburg, Germany - 18th May 2009

By: RikeH

Hi Mum,
in the afternoon we went to visit a nice castle. It was built in the years 1570-1585 and is very nice. Unfortunately we were not allowed to make photos inside, I think, they want to sell their postcards.


So, those are all of us on Rikes car.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_6870.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_6869.jpg

That is me in front of the Castle - and the bridge of the castle.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_6865.jpg,

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_6866.jpg

Sülfeld, Germany - 22nd May 2009

By: RikeH

Dear Mum,

today two new TVs arrived here. It was just the right time for them to arrive. Rike planned a nice party with many games today, because three of us will travel to our next destinations this week-end. Now it is a Farewell- and a Welcome-Party. Great !

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_6883.jpg

For the Party we had two teams. I am in the team for the big TVs.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_6884.jpg

First we played billiard. That is not easy….so we moved the billiard cue together.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_6886.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_6887.jpg

The next game was darts. We all tried to have a 180, but that is not possible for a little ToyVoyager. My best result was 121 – that is good, too.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_6896.jpg

After these sportive games, we played a game, named Ligretto. It is a very fast game and we had so much fun !

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_6897.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_6898.jpg

Our referee was a very funny Toy – it is called long hippo. He counted all the points from the different games and believe it or not, we are all winners.  What a wonderful evening.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_6905.jpg

We had a wonderful sky  - can you see me in front of it?

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_6875.jpg

On Saturday I will come home, or go to my next host. I had a great time here in Germany!

Yours
Murph

Sülfeld, Germany - 21st June 2009

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,
I am a little sad, that you don’t write me and read my travel log. But today Rike and I decided, that she will take more photos of me – so that I can write more about my life. So maybe you will see them someday and remember your little Murph !

This week-end we were lazy at home. We decided to explore the house and find some interesting things.

First  I tried to call you, but I didn’t know your number…

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7906.jpg

Then we found these strange things- Rike told us, that they were used for horses, which worked on farms. But we didn’t see any horses here.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7910.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7911.jpg

At the end I played the trumpet – okay – it is not a trumpet. Who knows, what kind of instrument it is, can send us a PM….. Now I will play it, so Rike cannot sleep – it is so funny to be a ToyVoyager.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7912.jpg

PS : have you seen the spider on one of the photos?

Sülfeld, Germany - 24th June 2009

By: RikeH

Hi Mum !

Today was Bree’s last day at Rike’s home, so Rike asked Bree, what she would love to do.
She wished to go onto the playground and have a nice time there.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7951.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7952.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7954.jpg


Then it was time to say good-bye to Bree. We sat together in the lovely flowers. And especially dicker Kumpel hugged her !

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7957.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7958.jpg

I am so happy, that I can stay here for more days. Maybe forever?
Love
Murph

Sülfeld, Germany - 25th June 2009

By: RikeH

Hi Mum,

Milala and Ninni  arrived at Rike’s home today – and there were Slummy, dicker Kumpel and me waiting for them!

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7959.jpg

Especially dicker Kumpel was so happy to see Ninni, one of his missions is it to welcome 5 other bunnies – and she is the first one.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7961.jpg

We all will go on a cruise on the River Danube, there is very high water at the moment – so it will be an adventure!!!

Because we are nice TVs, we tried to help Rike to pack the bags.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7962.jpg

We decided that long hippo and blue hippo should come with us.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7964.jpg

Rike wasn’t that lucky with our idea, so we decided to need some games…

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7965.jpg

Help, what is that? Rike told us something, like – you are not really helpful - and put us in this nice basket…

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7966.jpg

…and now????  She had a strange smile in her face and brought us in the garden…

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7970.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7971.jpg

Well, we cannot help her now – but because we are ToyVoyagers, we will start to talk and talk and talk.

Love
Murph

Passau, Germany - 26th June 2009

By: RikeH

We started our tour in Passau. We explored the wonderful city and started with the Passauer Dom.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7973.jpg

Then we saw this lovely fountain with the beautiful building.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7987.jpg

Over the Danube we saw the Veste Oberhaus on the hill – it has a very long wall.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_7995.jpg

Do you know, that the Danube is the second longest river of Europe? And I will make a cruise on it – it is amazing !!!

Passau, Germany - 27th June 2009

By: RikeH

This morning we spent in Passau again. We had a beautiful view over the Danube.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_8012.jpg

Because Rike know, that we wouldn't love the boring long trip with the bus in the afternoon, we were allowed to play and we saw a great car of the fire department.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_8019.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_8025.jpg

Here we are on the long trip from Passau to Budapest. But we had fun – ToyVoyagers have always fun.

Budapest, Hungary - 28th June 2009

By: RikeH

We are in the capital of Hungary – normally it is sunny here, but we have an adventure trip, so we have been in a big thunderstorm with a lot of rain. Can you see me under the umbrella?

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_8043.jpg

We went back onto the ship – and found our bed that pretty !


http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_8038.jpg


After the dinner we had much better weather, so we went out. This is our ship – the Arosa Bella.


http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_8050.jpg


This is the most famous bridge in Budapest. Really pretty !


http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_8060.jpg


Postboxes are really funny here – we loved them.

along the Danube, Hungary - 29th June 2009

By: RikeH

Today we made a trip with the bus, because we wanted to see the Donau-Knee. You will see it on one of the photos. First we visited a small village, where many artists live. It has a nice church – and a great place.

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_8100.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_8099.jpg


Then we went to a big Fortress, called Visegrad. We saw the Donau-Knee there, And later, from the place, where we had dinner, we saw the Fortress,


http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_8109.jpg

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_8122.jpg


We drove to the cathedral of  Esztergom, one of the largest churches of Europe. It was amazing. When we stood next to it, we saw our ship in the Danube. Of course I wanted a photo !

http://i649.photobucket.com/albums/uu215/RikeH_2009/A%20Gaeste/IMG_8151.jpg

Back on the ship, we made a photo of  the cathedral of  Esztergom. Isn't it beautiful? After it, we played on the ship.
