Travelog for: Etwas

a room, somewhere, Germany - 11th November 2008

By: babyamy

This is how everything started yesterday: Katrin opened her wool box and this little Hungarian bear called Peti chose as many different colors as it could take.

Katrin started to work on her very own creature. But as always, something went wrong: the hands didn't do what the head had planned. Instead of create someting like a snake, something strange has began to live. But Peti isn't scared of me, he keeps his eye on me to make sure that nothing bad happens to me.
This is how I looked when Katrin went to bed yesterday:

And this is how I look today! I've grown a lot and when Katrin has finished crocheting this wool, I'll have to find me some eyes.
I remind Katrin of the ghosts of the Pacman game, that's why she decided that I'll be a ghost. I think, I'll have to learn more about ghosts but I already now that the can change their form very easily and yes, I can do this, too!

By the way, since nobody knows what I really am, Katrin called me Etwas. That's a German word which means "something".

Katrin's home, Germany - 13th November 2008

By: babyamy

Today Peti and I decided to help Katrin's mum to clean the house. We swept clean the stairs on our own.


Then we started to discover the house. I like this flower, although it's made of plastic.  ;)


This lady invited us to take a photo with her. I look good as a hat, don't I?

Katrin's room, Germany - 15th November 2008

By: babyamy

Katrin has decided, that I'll go on a journey around the world one day and that I should be prepared for it. In her huge box full of books and CDs she wants to sell I discovered a cassette with the story of the "Little Ghost" by Otfried Preu▀ler. I wanted to know something about this ghost and I started to listen to the cassette. In the story the kids meet the ghost and learn English, that's great for me. I learned to count to 12, and some colors and to introduce myself and do some small talk and animals and many other things.

Katrin's desk, Germany - 16th November 2008

Katrin's house, Germany - 16th November 2008

By: babyamy

These are the stairs to the attic of the house...
It looks dark and it seems to be cold, since told air came down here when Katrin opened the hatch.

Katrin was looking for a box for her friendship book and diaries from her school days. She needed space in desk drawer, but she didn't want to throw everything away.

Then we had a quick look around. There were many packed things under these blankets and in these boxes, but it was getting too  cold to have a closer look and we decided to go back into Katrin's room where it's much warmer.

Museum der Arbeit, Hamburg, Germany - 17th November 2008

By: babyamy

Today Katrin took us with her to Hamburg. But here we are at the station in Wrist. Look at the beautiful sun rise, it's going to be a beautiful day.

In the morning the sun was shining into the huge room you have to pass to enter the office of the archive. We decided to to take a bath in the sun. ;)

This was Katrin's work for today: She has this photoalbum and has to scan all the photos of the cars. The next step will be to make entries for each photo in the database but this will be her work for the next days.

This is in front of the part of the museum, in which the exhibition of the Tempo-cars is. You can see old Tempo-cars on the photos of the photoalbum.

Then I decided to go back into Katrin's bag because it was getting too cold.

Kellinghusen, Germany - 17th November 2008

By: babyamy

When we came home this late afternoon, Katrin's mum told her that there is a parcel waiting for her in her room. She didn't expect anything but when she saw the sticker on the parcel, she remember that she has ordered it a few month ago on the internet. Since it's been quite a long time, she had totally forgotten about it.

We opened it and it looks like a mess. It took Katrin some time to get through all the things and find out, what she got.

Here we are with all the stuff: Notebooks, a pen, an USB-Stick and this funny blue guy which is an alarm clock.
There also was a letter and Katrin remembered after reading it, that this parcel belongs to a project of students from the Hamburg University. They wanted to give useful presents to other students and this is the present box.

Miskolc, Hungary - 24th November 2008

By: Szandra

Hello!! Today I arrived to Hungary! I already miss you, Mum... but I enjoy being a toyvoyager and I'm already so excited about my next few weeks here in Hungary and.... can't believe, nobody tells me anything about the place that we are going to visit on the end of the next week... that's not fair! ;) I want to know everything!!

I wanted to be sure that I arrived to the right place... As you know, ghosts can appear anywhere, where they want, but I'm a very young ghost and never knows... I can make a mistake... :o But I totally quiet down when Szandra shew me on the map, that I'm really in Hungary! :D So, everything went well, I'm a talented ghost! B)

Miskolc, Hungary - 24th November 2008

By: Szandra

Right before my arrival, I wanted to get to know some pets.
At first I met with a cat, called Karcsi!
He was a little bit dreadful for me...but a ghost never frightened! I should be the one who scare others! :rolleyes:


Than...a red cat... again?!
No, it's not Karcsi again... It's an other cat, Jeni.


I wanted to say hi to the dogs, but... they didn't realise me...


Finally, it seems, Ali sees me.

But Bandi... Can you see the recognition in his eyes? Me not... I can see only that he is sleepy... :p

I have already found some Christmas decorations in the house.
This one is my favourite. It's like a small village.

After I played enough, I decided to help Szandra in her homework.
I was very interested in learning about old times costume history.
We had to search baroque style clothes on the internet, than we printed them and stuck in to the roll of paper.
