Dortmund, Germany - 20th November 2011

By: SchokoCookie

Hi!
I'm SchokoCookie, a little Hedgehog. I'm new as a TV and I hope that I'll be able to start my journey soon. I don't have a host jet, but I'm sure I'll find one soon.

Here is a picture with my best friend Finn, he is giong to travel too (our mentors Traumfrosch and SchokoCookie betted who is going to travel more miles). I think I'll miss him a lot, but I hope we'll meet somewhere.

Wiehl, Germany - 22nd November 2011

By: SchokoCookie

I've got my first hosts!
I got a lot of messages and fleursmum wrote that I can stay with her in Australia over Christmas! I'll visite a beach! I'm so excited!

Afterwards I'll probably travel to Norway to stay with Sollie for a while to learn Norwegian and then I'd really like to visite Japan where I'll stay with hanachan. I also got a message from annix, amb167, GeoCRAt and Leslie, who invited me to stay in Italy, California, Dubai and Chile! 

I can't wait to start my big journey! My mentor's already bought me a very comfortable envelope, I'll crawl into it now, together with some sweets for the journey and a postcard from my beautiful home city :)

Finn, I'm so sad to leave you, I hope that you'll find a host soon and that your journey will be as amazing as mine. I'll tell you when I arrived on the other side of the world and I'm looking forward to meet you somewhere abroad!

nearly on the way, Germany - 22nd November 2011

By: SchokoCookie

Ok, I'm now ready to leave my home, probably for a very long time. To my surprise my mentor gave me a travel diary, where I can note all the places I visited and the experiences I gained there. She thought it would be a nice reminiscene of my amazing journey and I like the idea very much! I hope my hosts'll help me writing down everything, practicing the new languages I'll learn from the people and TVs there :)

We are now leaving to the post office, they say it'll take about 1 week to arrive in Australia. fleursmum, I'm coming! :)

Geelong, Australia - 9th December 2011

By: fleursmum

Hi Mum,

Today we drove to St Leonards but on the way we stopped at Geelong to have a break from the car. It was a hot day - over 30 degrees so it was great to be by the water! B)
Here I am at Western Beach and behind me is the Cunningham Pier - out there there is a restaurant and a pub owned by one of the local football players.
Love

St Leonards, Australia - 11th December 2011

By: fleursmum

Hi Mum,

It was a wet, cloudy and windy day today so we had a read inside.
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7159/6504237879_41e2a6d692.jpg
I didn't understand alot but I looked at the pictures!!  :D
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7155/6504241899_74ef126152.jpg
Have a look at lunch Mum, let me at it!! :p
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7158/6504243157_2b402e8de5.jpg
I shared with Binky  :D
In the afternoon we went out to the back yard to get some fresh air and found Binky up a flowering gum tree playing at being an Aussie koala!! ;)
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7018/6504248541_3552f3b0a7.jpg
We had a look at the apricot tree, the fruit should be ripe for Christmas
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7175/6504256045_60daa087fb.jpg
and the plums should be ready soon after
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7012/6504263219_93a8a9df1c.jpg
we found some apples hanging over the back fence  :p
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7169/6504272541_f7247487fd.jpg
we all sat in the bougainvillea to have our photo taken!! :D

Geelong, Australia - 12th December 2011

By: fleursmum

Hi Mum,

On the way back to Gisborne we stopped at the Botanic Gardens in Geelong.
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7155/6504275661_de6278e49a.jpg
the funny looking gourd things were growing in the vege garden
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7010/6504283839_aa9fe819d2.jpg
we are sitting by the sage garden here
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7150/6504289341_067598e9c6.jpg
this part of the gardens had the ferns and palm trees
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7006/6504295419_0d6a32850b.jpg
and more bollards Mum - this man started the gardens back in 1851 and the lady has (behind her back) a flower press and a little piece of a plant she had taken from the garden. Flower pressing was very popular back in the 1050's.

Love and hugs

Ballarat, Australia - 14th December 2011

By: fleursmum

Hi Mum,

We had a big day out today - a big drive and then we arrived at Ballarat Wildlife Park. Here we go!! :D
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7163/6509076015_78bd5e1f0c.jpg
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7168/6509119853_0b5ef9f15c.jpg
Hello up there!!
Oohh... hello -
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7024/6509121953_768ca826eb.jpg
this is a western gray kangaroo, they are very friendly, especially as they are given corn and grain by the visitors! :D
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7034/6509138121_4baf97364c.jpg
here is a kangaroo and an emu
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7008/6509156627_264fcd4077.jpg
this emu was watching us watching it, I think it wanted the food we had given the kangaroo!
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7145/6509165159_30df160f0a.jpg
Bubblegum and I didn't know if this was a crocodile or alligator?  :)
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7160/6509176619_8d93575ef7.jpg
Do you think this lizard is checking me out for dinner?  ;)
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7001/6509186273_25bc10e88b.jpg
Binky and I watched the big tortoise eat lunch - it had mushrooms and cucumber!  :)
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7146/6509202031_c07d1c0f30.jpg
"never smile at a crocodile" - good advice I think!!
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7143/6509204193_817ccd62f3.jpg
I had a chat to some koalas in the shop about being a TV but I am not sure they understood me - they kept saying "No worries Mate"?? :D
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7001/6509210813_b48fd088cf.jpg
Hey Mum,  Binky and I got to meet Misty the koala - Binky got to meet a life mission and I got a treat!! :D
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7172/6509217247_441e7cd528.jpg
I got to meet the baby wombat -it is one year old - and should have been asleep because wombats are nocturnal! I think this one had been woken up by a tour group going through, they all got to pat - it is like patting a wire brush!!
Well Mum I am off for a sleep in the back of the car now - it has been a busy day.

Love and hugs
SchokoCookie
