Christmas time can be funny.
I rode a rocking horse.

Berlin, Germany - 30th November 2011

By: MA_17

Hei Mum,

today we boarded the kitchen!
First we formed the meat into balls that Chrissy could bake it. I stole some of the meat, but please don't tell the girls! Then we mixed some milk with different ingredients. While Chrissy stired everything and Beate checked if she did it correct, I was searching for something to eat in the bag of the ingredients. I was so hungry! We added the mixture to the balls. Chrissy cut the cheese and we put it on the top of everything. Then we waited for a long time... et voilà... it was delicious!!!

Hey Mommy,

today we welcomed a new tv. His name is Joe.
I'm a little bit confused, because he looks like Chrissy. Maybe they are twins?!


Yours, Tapsi

Berlin, Germany - 5th December 2011

By: MA_17

Hello Mummy,

today we wanted to do a big sightseeing tour, but it was raining until noon and started again after a short time. So it was a short day for me outside.

First we went to the Oberbaum Bridge. From here we had a fantastic view to the East Harbour section of the river Spree. On the left side you can see the buildings of Mediaspree, like Universal Music Headquarters (Germany), MTV Central Europe and TV Dockyard. On the right side you can see the Treptowers and the TwinTowers. And in the middle of the river Spree you can see Molecule Men. These thirty meters high metal sculpture was designed and executed by the American sculptor Jonathan Borofsky. Symbolically, they represent the intersection of the then three districts Treptow, Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain.

We walked along the East Side Gallery. It is the longest open air gallery in the world. The art mile is located along the banks of the river Spree in Friedrichshain. It is 1316 meters long and it is also the longest segment of the Berlin Wall that is still standing. Right after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery was painted by 118 artists from 21 different countries. Using various artistic means, the artists commented on the political events that took place in 1989 and 1990 in over 100 works of art found on the eastern side of the wall.
In the course of the years, many of the images became greatly weathered and, in 2009, forty of these works of art were restored.

Our last stop was the o2 World. It was opened in September 2008, a modern multi-function arena setting new standards for Berlin. Up to 17,000 people can attend the concerts – then the stands can be converted to a sporting arena within a few hours after they leave.
The o2 World is particularly suited to large and spectacular shows, such as “Walking with Dinosaurs”, which features life-size dinosaur replicas. Concerts are also provided for by the ultramodern technology and video projections. The arena is also the home of the national league basketball club ALBA Berlin and the ice hockey team Eisbären Berlin.

By the way. It is cold in Berlin, but it is still not snowing!

Love, Tapsi

Berlin, Germany - 6th December 2011

By: MA_17

Hello Mommy,

today we did a short stopover at the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, also known as the Holocaust Memorial. It is a memorial to the Jewish victims of the Holocaust. It consists of a 19,000 square metres site covered with 2,711 concrete slabs or "stelae", arranged in a grid pattern on a sloping field. The stelae are 2.38 m long, 0.95 m wide and vary in height from 0.2 to 4.8 m.

When we came home in the evening there was an envelope waiting for us.

Chrissy and Joe took the scissor to open it. They were afraid of cutting somebody or something inside. But nothing happened... :rolleyes:

Chrissy and Joe crawled into the envelope. Beate and I had to help them out of it.

When they came out of the envelope they had a new tv in their arms. His name is Greeny delMonte. He seems to be a nice guy.

Huhu Mommy,

today we found a colorful envelope at hour hosts home.

We opened it carefully and saw something red inside. We were a little bit afraid.

It was Crawfish in the envelope. She came the long way from the US. And she had something sweet to eat for us.

Croft, Warrington, England - 19th December 2011

We've arrived in England Mum! :D Woo. It was a bit of a rough ride for Chrissy and I; our package got slightly ripped and wet in the post. But thankfully we were all fine and dry inside :) It was so nice to have a travel companion. 

The welcoming TVs loved their presents and postcards, especially the chocolate with the characters on, ooh and the stamps! Our new host says thankyou to MA 17 :) Chrissy and I showed off our travelog tags B) Sienna the monkey really liked my funky hair, her obsession with it was quite funny :p I match the size of Edelweiss! So we had a photo together.

The other TVs we met were Pinky Bear and Pengy. Soon we will all help to put the Christmas tree up!

Mum, we were discussing Santa Clause today, and I mentioned to the other TVs that I had made a list that is on my travelog. They all came to have a look, and were very confused. Edelweiss asked whether it was written in Lion Language :p And Sienna said that Santa's Elves won't be able to read it! :( Then suddenly she had an idea, and found a mirror! :D I really hope the elves will bring my letter to Santa himself, as he will be able to use a mirror to read it :)

The others said that although I can't write in the right direction, it must take great skill to write the way I do! ;)

The Trafford Centre, Manchester, England - 23rd December 2011

By: Gizalba

Today we went to a nearby shopping centre mum! It was all pretty and Christmassy :) I am going to have to split this into a few updates in order to have a rest between uploading the photos, so more will come another day.

We went through the main shopping area, then into 'The Orient', where all the restaurants and cafes are. It is designed to look like a big ship, can you tell? And guess who was flying across the sky?! Santa himself! :D And his reindeer of course.

We wanted to look at the building from the outside, but only Chrissy had time to peek before the rain came down heavy. I have included her pictures so you can see :)

We found the birth of Jesus! The stable looked a bit hidden and out of place against all of the extravagant decorations, but I guess a stable isn't very classy is it? Maybe they could have made it bigger though... it looked like it had been thrown in as an after-thought! Where has the true meaning of Christmas gone, we ask? :p

The Trafford Centre, Manchester, England - 23rd December 2011

By: Gizalba

These are the rest of the photos from our trip to the shopping centre.

I found a small waterfall :) We thought there must be a big Christmas tree somewhere, and sure enough, we found it! Only it wasn't any old tree, it was a singing tree! :D The branches at the bottom moved, as a mouth, but you can't really see that on the photo.

I saw a nice car, but not sure why it was there... And China Town; I got to sit on a lion! At least I think it was a lion? Then we went back to another area where something funny happened. Chrissy rat was posing for a picture on the statue of a music band, when this little boy pointed to her and said 'can I have that mouse mum?!' Well, she looked really scared of being taken away but it was all okay. We thought it was hilarious, especially her indignity at being mistaken for a mouse! :p She saw the funny side afterwards.

Next we went to look at where the cinema is. We went back through the Orient then up some steps to get there.

Tree decorating!  (The camera battery went flat so we used a different camera in the middle until the battery charged and now the pictures are in different folders... bear with us while we get the order right ;) )

I was pretending one of the christmas tree's feet was a sledge :p But I was useful, I made sure the lights were in working order :D

We admired a card sent by Edelweiss's mum, Krawfish (with the donkey and animals) and one sent by RikeHH (the red card with the cute dog on) :)

Croft, Warrington, England - 25th December 2011

By: Gizalba


We got a few more pictures of our host's tree now it was day time, then went to see the real tree downstairs. My hosts family bought it for 50p a few days before Christmas :p Can you spot me? The picture is a bit blurry for some reason.

For Christmas my host got a brain! It is meant to help her learn the different parts for her studies, but we just found it fun to play with ;)

Then we all got a surprise... A new TV! :D And he looked liked the brother of Pengy, aww 

There was another present for my host, which seemed strange; Dawn of the Bunny Suicides! :stare:  She said it is meant to be humorous to humans, but we didn't look inside as judging by the cover we felt it might be a bit disturbing!

After the present-opening we took a few pictures of the decorations, then went to watch 'The Muppets Christmas Carol'. Kermit the frog was starring in it, so we heard it was very good.

I had some Christmas meat :D

I have also posted some pictures of another TV travelog I was nosying at. He looks like a relative of mine! :) His travelog says he is a stay-at-home TV being trained as a guide for the Big German RR... he has career prospects :) But maybe I can visit him someday... I hope he doesn't mind featuring in my update, but I was so excited to find him. Hello Hessen-leo! B)
