Travelog for: Lupus-Tigger

At home (Graz), Austria - 20th April 2009

By: marcie08

OK, here I am!

My name is Lupus-Tigger. A bit about me: As you can see, I'm a Tigger-tiger.  ;)
I'm a Lupus-Tigger because my Mom has Lupus and my journey is her project for the upcoming World-Lupus-Day on May 10th. Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body (skin, joints, and/or organs inside the body).
So I decided to help raising Lupus awareness by traveling the world and telling my hosts a bit about Lupus.
Maybe I get the chance to meet other hosts with Lupus.

As a benefit for my being an ambassador, I get to travel the world, meet new friends and visit as many places of interest as possible!

I hope that I can visit a friendly Toy-Host soon!

My bags are packed and I'm ready to go (as soon as I get my t-shirt...).

See you soon,

Hi Mum,

Rike went to school there.

You can see me in front of a nice fountain. The white building behind is the townhall.



That was funny !!!!


Other nice views of the city.





It was a nice trip.

I hope, that you don't miss me too much - I have so much fun with Rike and the other ToyVoyagers !!!

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


Because we were hungry we ate a big Pizza,


but it was to big for us...


Then Rike took us to the playground.



We had a lot of fun together.


Now we will talk about our adventures.

This evening I invited Kunigunde to the dance-school. We went there with a moped and enjoyed the sun.



Then we took a delicious drink.


The room was pretty with a wooden dance floor. We had so much fun, dancing to the music...




...and helping Tobi with some steps.


After it, we ate a delicate ice – what a wonderful evening.


We went home and told the other TVs about our adventures. Then we all played with the wonderful balloon.

Hamburg, Germany - 9th May 2009

By: RikeH

Hello Mum,

Today we went to Hamburg, because the port has birthday.


We saw a lot of nice ships.




This big cruise-ship is called Voyagers of the Seas – it should be ToyVoyagers of the Seas…


I even saw a helicopter !


These are old storehouses…


And this is me in front of the townhall.


We were tired and drove back home.

Sülfeld, Germany - 10th May 2009

By: RikeH

my name is Lupus-Tigger, because I want to tell about the disease Lupus. Today is a special day:

On the 10th of May it's International World Lupus Day, which has the goal of bringing more awareness over this chronic disease that affects over 5 million people worldwide. If you don't know what Lupus is, here's a quick summary:

Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body (skin, joints, and/or organs inside the body). Chronic means that the signs and symptoms tend to last longer than six weeks and often for many years. In lupus, something goes wrong with your immune system, which is the part of the body that fights off viruses, bacteria, and germs ("foreign invaders," like the flu). Normally our immune system produces proteins called antibodies that protect the body from these invaders. Autoimmune means your immune system cannot tell the difference between these foreign invaders and your body’s healthy tissues ("auto" means "self") and creates autoantibodies that attack and destroy healthy tissue. These autoantibodies cause inflammation, pain, and damage in various parts of the body.

Lupus occurs nine times more often in women than in men, especially between the ages of 15 and 50, but it can also affect men, children, and teenagers develop it too. To learn more about Lupus, check Wikipedia or the Lupus Foundation of America.


PS : Ich wünsche Dir einen schönen Muttertag - auch ohne mich !

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.



Then we saw this nice maypole…


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


And look Mum - we are 6 ToyVoyagers - so one of my Life Mission is completed. I am so happy about it !


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

Today was a sunny day – so I helped Rike in the garden.

First we planted some beautiful flowers.




Then I mowed the lawn. I am a very helpful TV !!!


And I hope, that you have the same nice weather at home.
Have you seen it - I have my own Tag now !

Sülfeld, Germany - 18th May 2009

By: RikeH

Hi Mum,

because one of Cassandras life missions is it to read great children books, we searched in Rikes house and found two nice books.

In the first book there very many fairy tales. They are sometimes very spooky, but most of them have a happy ending.



The second book is great, too. There are many songs for children in it - and I found one about a nice horse. We sang it together - it was wonderful !

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.



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

Sülfeld, Germany - 21st 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 !


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


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



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 106 – that is good, too.


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



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.


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


On Saturday Super Grover, Murph and Cassandra will leave us, but I am sure, that I will have a nice time with Bree, Kunigunde and Penny.
