Remscheid, Germany - 9th August 2008

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
I arrived in Remscheid today. That was a really short trip!


I was welcomed by my host Katja and four ToyVoyagers. There  were  rat Fester, kangaroo Tilda, goose Hendrieke and Wadworth Bear.


Katja took me with her when she went shopping. So she could show me the town centre.

Here you can see house where I live now. It's the house on the left side, our apartment is in the attic  storey.


This photo is taken on our way to the town centre.


We had to walk for about 10 minutes. Then we already reached the pedestrian area. Because Remscheid is an industrial town, famous for tools, the entrance to the pedestrian area is marked by these giant forceps.


This is the town hall. Hidden behind the trees on the left side the office where Katja is working is located.


Now I will show you come pictures made in the shopping street. We had to walk to the post office because Katja had to send a few things. There was one envelope with funny stickers, containing a birthday card and a larger envelope to the Netherlands.




Unfortunately this is not a real ice cream!


Did you notice the dark clouds on my first pictures? After walking for half an hour the weather looks much better.



Katja told me that she is going to make wafers in the afternoon. That sounds great. I can't wait to taste something sweet and rich in calories.

Hi Mummy,
it's me again. I tasted delicious chocolate filled with wafer.



Katja's daughter Alex also had something sweet and good. She had winegums with yoghurt filling. It's called Jogi Bussi.


Katja is already in the kitchen preparing everything for baking wafers. I'd better hurry up to get into the kitchen or they will start without me!

We are now in the kitchen.

Katja is wearing a funny apron. There's a teddy bear printed on it. The apron also has a big pocket. It seems to be made for little bears so they can sit in it.


But, hey, what's that? The printed teddy bear is wearing a napkin!


We had prepared everything for baking. For our receipe you need

250 g margarine or butter (to make the wafers a bit defatted we took 125 g margarine and 125 g curd cheese)
150 g sugar
1 package vanilla sugar
1 dash salt
4 eggs
500 g flour
1 tsp. baking powder
375 ml water
4 tbs. honey


First we stirred margarine and curd cheese, added sugar and eggs, honey and stirred again. Then we mixed flour and baking powder. Then you have to add a few spoonfull flour and water alternately to the dough, then stirr again and so on.


When the dough was ready we had to preheat the waffle iron.


We filled dough into the waffle iron ...


took the baked wafers out of the waffle iron ...


and piled the wafers.


When we finished work we had to air in the open kitchen window.


Of course we tasted the wafers. They are really good. To eat more we have to wait until tomorrow. Katja invited a friend to come tomorrow.

We will have the wafers with whipped cream and cherries tomorrow.

Remscheid, Germany - 11th August 2008

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
we found a letter from USA today in our mailbox.

One of Mausi's hosts, wmphimu, had sent something to Katja.

We opened the envelope and found a cute book "If you take a mouse to school". Wmphimu had read another book of this series with Mausi and Katja loved this book. Now she received such a book as a present. She is really delighted!




The story is told easily: If you take a mouse to school he'll ask for your lunchbox. When you give him your lunchbox, he'll want a sandwich. The mouse always wants more until in the end everything is starting from the beginning again.

This is my favourite picture:


The mouse is searching for the lunchbox. He forgot that he left in at school ...

Hi Mummy,
Tilda, the kangaroo from Australia, left today. She is going to Munich.


We had a last beer with Wadworth Bear now. He will leave tomorrow. It's a little bit sad that two of new friends left already but that's the way travellers do. Katja told us that two ToyVoyagers will arrive soon.


We also had something sweet made of chocolate with milk cream filling - Milchmäuse (milk mice).




This is a milk mouse.

Müngsten Bridge, Remscheid/Solingen, Germany - 15th August 2008

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
today we took a walk. We started at Müngsten Bridge, one of the touristic highlights of this region.

The Müngsten Bridge is the highest steel railroad bridge in Germany. The bridge is 107 metres (350 ft) high and spans over the valley of the river Wupper, connecting the cities Remscheid and Solingen. The bridge was finished in 1897.

A few years ago a leisure park was built under the bridge.


We walked to Solingen-Unterburg through the forrest.

Solingen-Unterburg, Germany - 15th August 2008

By: olgamaus

We crossed the river Wupper here.


Along the path through the forrest you can find rocks with engraved inscriptions or sometime tabletop games. Here is one of them. You only have to look for some small stones or acorns and you can start.


Then we had to walk about half an hour to get to Solingen-Unterburg. This is a very old district of the neighbour town Solingen. It's located in a valley, the river Wupper is running through the district.

We saw a little church and a very old graveyard. The graveyard was established here in 17th century. The gravestones are all made in the same style with a certain sort of sandstone.




First we had to rest for a little while.



This is a statue showing the "Kiepenkerl". In past centuries those men carried all sorts of goods in their panniers to get them to the customers. This one here is carrying pretzels, which are very special for this part of Solingen. They are sweet hard pretzels.

Remscheid, Germany - 22nd August 2008

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
Bokkie from South Africa arrived today. She is really lovely.


We took a walk in Gelpetal, a region between Remscheid and the neighbour town Wuppertal where you can see some historic industrial plants. In Remscheid you have metalworking industry since medieval times, partly because of the geographical situation. The city of Remscheid is located on a hill which is surrounded by valleys where you can find lots of creeks. In ancient times water power was used to run forges. At the beginning of the path that leads through the valley you can find severeal boards with informations about the valley.


You can also find fishing ponds here.


We reached a restaurant which is located here for more than 100 years.


You can also find a small dam for drinking water in the forrest. Here we are standing on the dam.


I saw cows.


These houses are typical for this region, half-timered houses with green shutters. The weather side is often covered with schist.


From this moment on it startet to rain heavily and we jumped into Katja’s bagpack.

Remscheid, Germany - 24th August 2008

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,

today Katja and a friend took us on a walk in the outskirts of Remscheid. We started on the same path as on Friday.

Here you can see the sign at the entrance of the path and one of the historic buildings.




We walked through the forrest to the next district. Here we saw much grazing land, in the background you can see the silhouette of the town centre of Remscheid with the towers of the town hall and the water tower. Here you can see that the town centre is located on a hill.


Here you can see a photo of the district „Westen“. It’s funny that the district’s name means “West” although it is lying in the north of the muncipal area.


Katja made a flower crown for Bokkie, she was really looking beautiful with it.


We reached the next district where you can also the typical houses, you can also see that there is a lot of woodland around these small districts.


We saw again pasture and harvested fields. We rested on a bank for a while.


On our way back we went to the apartment of Katja’s friend. We went through a meadow that had run wild with a creek running through it. The wild flowers are almost as high as an adult person.


Katja’s friend had coffee and muffins for us. We were sitting on the balcony. There were a lot of flowers, we were playing hide and seek between the flower pots. I found some flowers which were more pink than me.


We were all tired after that long walk.

Hi Mummy,
today a new ToyVoyager arrived - Dieuwerke from the Netherlands.


I had delicious letter shaped chocolate-cookies. Katja wrote my name with them. We had to cheat a little bit because most of the "L" were eaten up. So we nibbled two "F" to "L".

Remscheid, Germany - 27th August 2008

By: olgamaus

today we took a walk in the afternoon through one of the valleys.

In the outskirts we saw these beautiful flowers in a garden.


Behind the bushes in the foreground a creek is running. Last year they had a horrible rainfall here in August, the whole valley was overflooded then.


We rested for a while between the roots of a large tree.


Without a doubt Remscheid does not only consist of forrests, fields and beautiful valleys. Remscheid is an idustrial town.

Here you can see one of the arterial roads and the building site of the new central station.



We walked back to our home along the "Werkzeugtrasse" (Route of tools). I'll tell you more about this special lane later.


Along this route you can find many artwork made of tools. This statue is made of varnished decay from punched parts. Can you see us?
