Z'witz, Germany - 29th October 2011

By: MA_17

Hello mommy!

I arrived at my first host's home. It was a really short trip, but the postman shook me from left to right and up and down. I was badly off.

Squab arrived a few minutes before from Berlin. He opened my box and gave me a lovely hug.

He introduced me to his 2 other friends: Alex the Starbucks bear and Wasabi, a white mouse. Both are no toyvoyagers. Their mommy loves them too much. When I saw Wasabi, I thought I'm looking into a mirror  :cyclops: My lost twin!

I just had time for a snack and then Squab wanted to show me this small village I arrived. It's his second hometown.

First I got a compass that I'll always find back home if I get lost. It got the perfect size for me.

We had perfect weather for a small tour through Z'witz as the inhabitants call it. We walked around their famous power station what is a museum now.

Most parts of the power station are knocking down for more than 10 years! When they are finished, they are going to build something like a solar house.

On our way back I saw a small nice garden with little rocks in front of it. My wits of being a rodent startet and I tried to dig. Squab told me to stop and go on with our little tour. Pour me  :stare:

I noticed that it is a really nice village where I arrived. Nice houses, nice fire department and forest!

And we had a wonderful sunset. But I think Squab didn't see it. He fell asleep during our way back home.  :cyclops:

Just a few meters before "home" I got this wonderful pic of myself. Later when I saw it on the computer of my host, I noticed that there was a cat behind me!!!  :o I'm really happy that she didn't want to eat me!

Finally arrived in the flat, Squab woke up and decided to be hungry. Crazy chick! We pitched into a fancy cake we found in the fridge.

Now I'm totally full and totally wiped out. I think I go to bed now. Can't wait to go to Berlin on Monday!

See you soon,

Berlin, Germany - 31st October 2011

By: MA_17

Mommy! Mommy! Mommy!

I'm a rockstar!!!

Unfortunately I couldn't keep the guitar. It was a present for somebody we went to yesterday evening. I didn't know where we will go.
When we arrived, I had a look around the place we were.
Whaaaaa there was a cat again!

But the cat didn't want to eat me! She was really afraid of me! Hahaaa! She run away and then I saw it! A big cat tree! I wanted to climb on it, so I did. (I didn't see the other cat above!!!)

It was too late when I noticed the other cat! I thought she's going to eat me. What a short life I would have.
Luckily she didn't want to eat me, just make new friends!

Both cats were really nice to me. I think I made 2 new friends!

This evening we arrived in Berlin. It's dark outside, so I have to take some pictures during the next days.

Until then...

Berlin, Germany - 2nd November 2011

By: MA_17

Hello Mommy!

Today my host had to work the whole day. So I did a tour on my own through the "City west".

I started at the famous station "Bahnhof Zoo". From here you can discover the city by train, S-Bahn, metro or bus, but I decided to walk...

From here it was just a short walk to the "Theater des Westens". This private theatre designed by Bernhard Sehring and constructed in 1896 is a well-preserved example of magnificent bourgeois architecture. The form language floats in eclectic quotations, a mixture of styles from the antiquity, and the medieval and renaissance ages.
There will be a new musical starting in a few days: Dance of the vampires! I think I won't join, because it sounds really scary!

On my way to the next stop I met this lovely guy. He's a Buddy Bear. There are so many all over Berlin and there exist also more than 140 country bears with most of the countries of the world. And these bears are travelling around the world. They are tall toyvoyagers!!!

I also visited the "Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church" at Breitscheidplatz. It was consecrated in 1895. In 1961 the architect Egon Eiermann integrated the tower ruin, left behind by World War II, into a new building. The new tower and octagonally shaped church nave frame the relic as a memorial to the destruction caused by war. The two new buildings consist of blue glazed, honeycomb elements. A slightly raised platform connects the individual segments and moulds them into an ensemble. In the mid-1990s, the church nave and subsequently the bell tower were refurbished. For about one year they have necessary refurbishment of the church. This is why you can only see the white cover and not the real church. Maybe I'm going to come back to that place in a few years then I can take a better picture!
On the other side of Breitscheidplatz I saw the Europa Center. It owns many shops, an Irish pub which shall be really good, some restaurants & cafes and a theatre "Die Stachelschweine". There's also a water clock inside. I'll take a picture of it during the next days!
http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m49/ma_17/Toyvoyager/04-3.jpg http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m49/ma_17/Toyvoyager/05-3.jpg

I also went to the zoo. It is often said that they have the most extensive range of species worldwide! Ok, I didn't go inside, but I stopped in front of the magnificent oriental gate with its elephant sculptures which was constructed in 1899.

My last stop in this area was KaDeWe. It is the most famous department store of Berlin and the largest department store on the European continent, famous above all for its gourmet food department on the sixth floor.

From here I took a bus to the government area. First I saw the German Bundestag which is located in the Reichstag Building. The centrepiece of the building is the generously glazed chamber that is crowned by the dome. A funnel with panes of mirror glass reflects the daylight from above into the chamber.
If you want to visit it, you have to ask for an entry few days before and give them your name and passport number. Poor me, I don't have a passport.
http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m49/ma_17/Toyvoyager/08-2.jpg http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m49/ma_17/Toyvoyager/09-3.jpg

The freestanding tower behind me is called "Carillon". It is built face to face with the Reichstag building. Most of the tourists don't see it, but I did. It is a large, manually played concert instrument, comprising 68 bells weighing a total of 48 metric tonnes (almost 106,000 lbs.) connected to a keyboard spanning 5½ fully chromatic octaves; the largest bell weighs 7.8 tonnes (almost 17,200 lbs.). It is one of the largest instruments of its kind in Europe and approximately the fourth largest (by number of bells) in the world.

Next to the Reichstag building you can find the "Paul Löbe House". It houses 550 offices for MPs, 19 conference rooms, around 450 offices for parliamentary committees, the Bundestag information service for visitors, and a restaurant that is open to the public.

Across from this building you can see the "Federal Chancellery". The inhabitants of Berlin call it "Waschmaschine" (washing machine).
http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m49/ma_17/Toyvoyager/12-1.jpg http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m49/ma_17/Toyvoyager/13-1.jpg

It was just a short way to the "Central Station". It is the main railway station in Berlin. 1,800 trains call at the station per day and the daily number of passengers is estimated to be at 350,000! But I don't know how many rats you can find there per day.
From here you can do non-stop travels to Amsterdam (the Netherlands), Novosibirsk (Russia) or Astana (Kazakhstan). Ok, it takes a while until you arrive in these cities.

My last stop for today was the "Funkturm" which was built at the fair area. On its top there is a restaurant and a platform to have a view over the forest Grunewald.

Now I'm back at my "home-for-now" and my feet hurt a lot! My host gave me something delicious to eat, because I was so hungry!!! I think I'm addicted now and I hope to get more of these when I'm travelling to the US one day.

Oh mommy, I also have to show you this wonderful tree! Can you see me between these red leaves???

I'm off for today!
Cheers, Chrissy

Berlin, Germany - 3rd November 2011

By: MA_17

Greetings from Berlin!!!

Today I didn't do so much. My feet are still hurting. I think I walked too much yesterday.
So today I used the bus. I saw all the stores at Tauentzien, the new decorations in the big windows of KaDeWe, the Urania and Lützowplace.

I got out of the bus at the "Boulevard of stars" at Potsdamer Place. There was a list with all the stars, maybe there'll be my name on it one day.
And I took pictures of me and some stars: Mario Adorf, Til Schweiger, Marlene Dietrich and Anke Engelke! I'm so proud!!!

Maybe I'm going on a trip by train tomorrow...

Hugs and kisses,

Z'witz / Dessau, Germany - 4th November 2011

By: MA_17

Hello mommy!

Today I went by train from Berlin to my hosts second home. I got my own seat next to the window. It was really interesting. We crossed the river Elbe!

At "home" a new tv, Madison, arrived. He brought some sweets to us!

We didn't had time to eat the sweets. Squab had to pack his luggage, because he is going on his first journey. My host, Madison and I went to Dessau by car. We needed some flowers. No time for sightseeing. But Madison took a picture of me when we passed the "Anhaltisches Theater". Lovely guy!
And I crossed another river called Mulde.

When we were back we had a goodbye dinner for Squab. He shared his big cookie with us. Then we had to say bye bye. I hope he will enjoy his trip.
http://img525.imageshack.us/img525/2521/img3067w.jpg http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/6526/img3068o.jpg

Dinner was over, Squab crawled into his envelope and we welcomed some new tvs: Hippo & Emilia.

I hope the weather will be good tomorrow. We are panning a tour to some sights here in the middle of nowhere.

Love, Chrissy

Wörlitz, Germany - 5th November 2011

By: MA_17

Hello Mum!

Today it was a wonderful sunny day. We took the car and went to Wörlitz to visit the Dessau-Wörlitz Garden Realm. We also went through Oranienbaum.

The church of Wörlitz is biiiiig!

We walked through a part of the garden and saw Mount Vesuv, Gothic House, the big lake etc.
We couldn't watch the castle, because it is totally covered by tissues in case of construction work. 

You have to look carefully to see me in front of the synagogue!

Madison and I climbed up to the top of a hill, where we could see the big church. Hippo didn't want to walk. He decided to use the travelbag.

After taken the picture in front of the whole church, me and Madison jumped down into the garden. It was about 6 meters to the ground! But it was really funny!

There were some nice animals: swans and horses and many ducks!

On our way back, we stopped in "the city of iron" called Ferropolis.

Finally back in Berlin I'm really tired!
Sending kisses to my home.

Berlin, Germany - 8th November 2011

By: MA_17

Hello mommy!

Yesterday I visited the Berlin Wall. There's a part of the wall still left to see. In the rest of the city you can see a line on the ground where the wall has been.

When I walked along that line I saw the famous cars from the ex-GDR: Trabant, or as they are also called Trabbi.
And I saw the whole world!!!

My last stop was at Checkpoint Charlie. It was the best-known Berlin Wall crossing point between East Berlin and West Berlin during the Cold War.

Love, Chrissy

at hosts home, Germany - 9th November 2011

By: MA_17

Hello Mum!

Today I had the chance to see real mice! 2 of them were nearly as big as I am! :o
I was not allowed to go into their cage, because they would bite me!
On the picture you can see Herkules. He's the boss in their home. I'm a little bit afraid of him.

at hosts home, Germany - 11th November 2011

By: MA_17

It's me again!

Today, Madison and I went with our host to her second home.
We helped Hippo & Emilia into a big envelope and sent them to Munich.

We also welcomed a new tv. Her name is Beate and she came from Austria.

And then there was that black box. I was so surprised of this cute tiny thing inside! It was Tapsi, one of my friends from home. I cuddled him a while.

Madison and I showed the others the area we were. We were all really hungry so Madison found us something to eat. Black berries! Tasty!
We also found some frozen strawberries.
I saw a rose petal and I think I look so cute with it on my head. But then...
Tapsi, that tiny stupid lion, found some decorations and decided to decorate ME! I think I prefer the rose as decorations on myself!

I'm going crazy because of Tapsi, but I missed him so much!
Let's see which adventures we are going to have together.

Love and hugs,

Lutherstadt Wittenberg, Germany - 12th November 2011

By: MA_17

Huhu Mummy,

today me and the other tvs visited Lutherstadt Wittenberg. We used the car to go there.

First we visited the market place. Here you can find the ancient town hall, the statue of Martin Luther and the town church.

We did a walk around the town church. The streets are tiny! Near the church we found the statue of Johannes Bugenhagen and an old fountain.

When we walked from one church to the next we saw many backyards. Some of them owns restaurants, some museums.
We wanted to go to one of the restaurants but we couldn't read the menu. There wasn't enough straw to build a "tower" to climb up to the menu.

So we went to the next backyard. We found a fountain of 1558 and we also saw Lucas Cranach the Younger painting a picture. We helped him a little bit.

In the third backyard we found the museum of history. There was a picture of the old money of the GDR. It looks really colourful.

Finally we arrived at the most famous building of Wittenberg, the castle church. It is so huge!

Here you can see me sitting in front of the door where Martin Luther posted The Ninety-Five Theses on October 31, 1517.

We also went inside the church. Wow, everything was so impressive!
I think there are also living some other mice around

After this sightseeing tour I was totally k.o.! Our host decided to do the last part by car. We went to the Hundertwasser school which was designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser. It looks colourful and funny!

It became dark when we went back home. And we saw a wonderful sunset!

Now we are back at home. All the others are sleeping.

Love, Chrissy

at hosts home, Germany - 16th November 2011

By: MA_17

Today Madison left us.
We cuddled him and gave him something to eat for his journey to Hamburg. I hope he'll arrive soon and will enjoy his stay in the north of Germany. I'm going to miss that cute guy. We had so much fun together. Hopefully I'll see him again one day. Goodbye Madison! :(

While we were having dinner, we listened to the radio and it was told that some people of the radio channel will be in the village! So we went to see Radio SAW live! It was so exciting!
Can you see me on the first picture?
PS: The man on the right of the stage is the same like you can see in the link! :D

highway, Germany - 17th November 2011

By: MA_17

Hei Mom,

today I was a little bit lazy. Our host took Tapsi, Beate and me into her car and we just drove around for about 250km!!! We used the highway to go to Berlin and back.
So many cars and lights and so much speed!

Goitzsche, Germany - 20th November 2011

By: MA_17

Hey Mom,

today we did a trip to the former brown-coal open cast mine of Goitzsche. The lake is also called "Bernsteinsee" (Lake of amber). It's about 840 hectars and it's located in the east of Saxony-Anhalt, near the city of Bitterfeld-Wolfen.
On some pictures you have to look carefully to see me!

We climbed up a wall. I was the fastest!

Because the lake was a coal mine before we could see lots of old stuff from that time, like the big train.

We did a little competition: "Who is able to go closest to the water without getting wet feet". Beate got a good idea to do it. Poor me, I lost! I got wet feet and a wet nose. I didn't want to go swimming!

Now, we are going back to Berlin.

Yours, Chrissy
