St Leonards, Australia - 2nd March 2012

By: fleursmum

Hi Mum,

we got to St Leonards and it was sooooo windy!! There were really big waves and that is not usual for here!

We had a walk along the beach for a little while - http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7193/6808347634_0ee881e557.jpg
I sat up on the Bluff to try to get out of the wind but I was nearly blown off!! Sue says the cliff is orange because of the iron in the soil, it was like a cliff to me but then I am small!! :D

Weinsberg, Germany - 6th April 2012

By: Zandy

Hi mummy,

today Zandy, her boyfriend, Mirembe and I went Geocaching. It was really funny. We go to Weinsberg, this is a town near to Öhringen.
But before we went to the castle we found this funny garden. Do you see the little stone castle there? Somebody try to make a model of the Weibertreu (something like: broad loyal), we found it very nice.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/01.jpg

And than we went to the original Weibertreu.  First I’ll tell you the story about the castle:

In 1140 the owners of the castle were the Guelf (Welfen) and they fight against the Hohenstaufen dynasty about the maystery in the empire. King Konrad III. besiged the castle and won the fight against his adversery Welf VI on the 21st December 1140. So the castle give up some time later and King Konrad III. allowed the women to go. And he said, that the women can take all with them if they can carry it on their shoulders. The men must stay there and the king would kill them.
So the women did it like he said, they take all with them what they can carry on their shoulders: Their men!
And so the castle get it's name.

How you can see there is a lot of wine around the castle. You found here a lot of wine in the area where Zandy live.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/02.jpg

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/03.jpg

Of course we went inside the castle and the view was really fantastic. It was the first visit for Zandy and her boyfriend, too. Mirembe and I didn’t believe it, because they life here, but it was really so. They said, that you found out more about the area you life, when you show it to ToyVoyagers.  :D
Mummy, look what a great view we had.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/04.jpg

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/05.jpg

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/06.jpg

It was very windy, so we had always to wait until we could take a picture. Otherwise we TVs will learn how to fly. But we think it was better we didn’t learn it this way. ;)

There was a little room inside the castle which we could visit. Inside we found this model of the castle.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/07.jpg

It tooks round an hour when we walked round the ruin, but it was great. We enjoy the view.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/08.jpg

Oh mummy, and we found this way

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/09.jpg

They called it music room or something like that. They call it so, because in the windows there were harps and when it’s windy enough (sadly not enough today) you hear the melody of the harps.

The next picture shows the view inside the castle.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/10.jpg

Mummy, can you see the church? And the way there?  At the corner on the right side we take the first picture. Very high, isn’t it?

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/11.jpg

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/12.jpg

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/13.jpg

On our way back down, we found this wall outside. I like it, it looks really old and the plants there make it a little bit mystic.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/14.jpg

And now the last pictures from me with the castle and the church, now from the other side.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/15.jpg

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/16.jpg

Bye Bye,
Meav

Heilbronn, Germany - 9th April 2012

By: Zandy

Hello at home! :D

Zandy has holidays and she decided to visit a friend in Osnabrück and I was allowed to go with her. On Monday our journey starts, we go by train there. Our first station was Heilbronn.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/17.jpg

Mirmebe and I keeped an eye on our luggage while we were waiting for the train.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/18.jpg

And than it came and we found a seat. Our journey began. Zandy was so excited, but we understand her. It’s great to visit other places. And she didn’t saw her friend for the last 8 years.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/19.jpg

Meav and I said goodbye to Heilbronn.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/20.jpg

Mummy, look I saw this old castle during our way to Mannheim. It was between Heilbronn and Mosbach. But we don’t know where it really was.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/21.jpg

Mannheim, Germany - 9th April 2012

By: Zandy

Mummy, I decided to split the pictures, so you can really see how our way was. I hope you like the idea. Of course we hadn’t always the time to go outside and take there picture. And sometimes we had to run to get into our next train. Like here in Mannheim.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/22.jpg

When we came into the station we saw a TGV, a train from France, but when we came to our next train the TGV was already on it’s way back to France. Sadly, we would take a picture, but no chance.

Frankfurt am Main, Germany - 9th April 2012

By: Zandy

Of course we didn’t take a picture in all the stations, because we sleep or the train was to fast for us. But at the airport in Frankfurt we take one. Sadly we can’t see planes from our place.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/23.jpg

After the short stay in Frankfurt I had a look at the plan. How you can see, our next stations will be Cologne, Düsseldorf, Essen, Dortmund and there we have to chance the train.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/24.jpg

But first I had a look outside. It was really great. I saw a lot of houses and than there were no once next to the train.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/25.jpg

Oh mummy, and look these seats were more comfortable like the first ones.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/26.jpg

And another view outside.

Cologne, Germany - 9th April 2012

By: Zandy

After a long, long time (ok we think that it was a long, long time :) ) we came to Cologne, but the weather was terrible. It was raining the whole time. But we had great feelings and so we didn’t get sad.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/28.jpg

We came into Cologne trough the Hohenzollern bridge. And the blue building is the Musicaldome. We asked Zandy to go outside to have a look to Cologne. But Zandy said no. When we look saddish she laugh and told us, that we will come on Wednesday back to Cologne and will stay there to Thursday. So we were really happy.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/29.jpg

We saw some trains coming into the station.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/30.jpg

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/32.jpg

And I saw a little peace of the Cologne Dome.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/33.jpg

Now we drove back to the Hohenzollern bridge and go our way to Osnabrück.

Düsseldorf, Germany - 9th April 2012

By: Zandy

We came to Düsseldorf and Zandy told me, that here is the largest bar in the world. She said that a TV from herself was here in Düsseldorf and she saw some nice things

Duisbug, Germany - 9th April 2012

By: Zandy

We came to Duisburg and I know, that at the moment a TV from Zandy is visiting this town. She said, that it will be interesting to visit her TV and the host, but of course we hadn’t the time.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/36.jpg

And after some more minutes we came to Osnabrück. But this day we didn’t take pictures, because Zandy and her friend talked a lot (ok after 8 years…) and I think it’s better to let her doing this today.  ;)

Good night mummy! Yours,
Meav

Osnabrück, Germany - 10th April 2012

By: Zandy

Hi mummy,

today it was raining the whole moring. But than we saw, that rain stops and we decided to go into the town. (And we had luck. The rain came only back for 5 minuts during our town visit. :-D )

First we visited the Dome in Osnabrück. It’s a small one, smaller than the one in cologne, but I think it’s beautiful, too.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/37.jpg

Inside we take some more pictures. Beautyful things there. Or what do you think?

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/38.jpg

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/39.jpg

I really like the colorful windows inside.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/40.jpg

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/41.jpg

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/42.jpg

And during our walk through the city we see some really nice houses. I like them very much.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/43.jpg

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/44.jpg

Mummy, can you see the figures over/behind my left ear? This are Adam and Eve.

This was our little walk through the town Osnabrück. How I said at the beginning it was raining the whole day, so we had to go home really early. But I think this houses and the dome are great views.

Bye bye,
Meav

Cologne, Germany - 11th April 2012

By: Zandy

And Wednesday comes, time to sit in the train and go to Cologe. During our tour at the train we didn’t take pictures, because we wake up early in the morning and we take the chance to sleep at the train.  But of course when we came out of the train and the train station we banish our first view on a picture.  :D

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/45.jpg

Zandy met another friend, so it took long before we could take pictures. But this was ok (if you see ;) ) First we went to the Hard Rock Café in Cologne. But the girls talked a lot, because they didn’t see each other for a long time so we only take one picture.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/46.jpg

And another view of the Dome.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/47.jpg

Than we take a little walk through Cologne and now I can present you some more impression.  In the backround you can see “Et Pääd” (don’t ask me how you pronounce it right. We didn’t know it. :D)  It’s a equestrian memorial from Friedrich Wilhelm lll.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/48.jpg

Than we went to the Rhine and take a walk there. Zandy wanted to buy chocolate at the chocolate museum in Cologne, so we also visited this building. (But we only saw the shop)

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/49.jpg

After buying chocolate we went up the building, there you have a great view over the Rhine and you also saw the Dome and another tower, but I will tell you later something about it.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/50.jpg

Here we look inside the chocolate museum. There you can see the chocolate fountain (the golden thing inside the building)

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/51.jpg

Than we wanted to drink something, so we sit down at a Café near the tower about I will tell you something. Zandy told me, that in this tower are ghosts. You can hear them sometimes. (But only when the wind came from one special direction. *hehe*) She heard it at her last visit when she took part on a Night watcher walk. However I think this tower is great.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/52.jpg

That were our first hours here in Cologne. Tomorrow we will go home by train. But before Zandy will show us some more thing, because we have some hours before the train will go.

Good night mummy!
Meav

Cologne, Germany - 12th April 2012

By: Zandy

Our last day of this journey.
How I already said, we had some time before the train leaves, so we took some more pictures.
Here we were inside the Dome. Look how beautiful the windows are. So colorful, we all liked them were much.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/53.jpg

This picture shows you the communion table.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/54.jpg

We also took a walk down into a little room where you also can pray. Mummy, look at this nice candle holder.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/55.jpg

Inside we also saw some organs, here is a picture from one. I know it isn’t the best one, but it’s difficult to take pictures without flash.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/56.jpg

Here is communion table for Maria. It was really beautiful. Sadly you can’t see the face of the statue. But we wouldn’t go near. There were a lot of people praying and we think it’s better to stay in the back.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/57.jpg

Another table in gold. I don’t know if this is real gold, but it looks like this.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/58.jpg

And one more of this beautiful windows.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/59.jpg

And the last picture inside the Dome. You see what it shows?

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/60.jpg

Mummy, look this doors are from the Dome. They are really massive and the ornaments are nice.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/61.jpg

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/62.jpg

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/63.jpg

Than Zandy showed us the “Heinzelmännchen fountain”. There’s a nice story about it.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/64.jpg

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/65.jpg

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/66.jpg

The Heinzelmännchen were little  men who came at night and made the work for the Cologne people. But the women – you see the women on the first picture? – wanted to know who these persons are. (The people never see them, because they have heads and they make them invisible) So the crafters wife put lentils (or something like that) at the stairs so the men fell down, lost their hads and the wife could see them. After this the men never come back and the Cologne people must do their work themselves. Here are some closer pictures from the pictures at the fountain.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/67.jpghttp://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/68.jpghttp://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/69.jpghttp://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/70.jpghttp://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/71.jpg

And surprise, surprise… another view at the Dome. :D

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/72.jpg

Mummy, can you see the bishop figure there? We didn’t know why this figure is there, but it looks like the bishop try to banish something or so.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/73.jpg

The last picture in Cologne is this with the fountain in front of the Dome. Than it was time to went to the train.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/74.jpg

An the last picture from our trip … WOW! Mummy, look how fast the train was.

http://i1138.photobucket.com/albums/n530/ToyVoyagerHost/Meav/75.jpg

Good bye mummy. I hope you enjoyed reading about my trip to Osnabrück and Cologne.

Love,
Meav
