Bellenberg, 29.05.14

Hello Mum,

 

It was boring at home – only sitting in the blue armchair and no adventure. So I listened to a phone call between Murph and Dicker Kumpel.

 

Murph will go on holiday – this sounds great. I kept all in my mind – and went to the place. 300 kilometers to the south – no problem for a brave donkey.

 

What was the name Dicker Kumpel talked about? Bellenberg – this looks good!

 

/

 

It must be here…

 

/

 

Yes, this was the right way.

 

/

 

I found the farm.

 

/

 

Now I have to wait for Murph! Hopefully this is the right place.

 

/

 

I heard voices! They come! „Pst, here I am!“

 

/

 

They found me!

 

/

 

We all were so happy.

 

/

 

We found a nice armchair and talked all night long!

 

/

 

Mum, hopefully it is okay, that I am here…

 

Yours HolgiHH


Externsteine - 30.05.14

Hello Mum,

 

Today we visited two landmarks in the Teutoburger Wald. First we walked to the „Externsteinen“. These rocks are really famous. There behind me you can see it. /

 

We saw this beautiful small river – and urgently wanted to have a photo.

 

/

 

These rocks look really great – don’t they?

 

/

 

There is a bridge between these rocks – it looks dangerous…

 

/

 

These rocks are really beautiful!

 

/

 

Our second stop is the region’s landmark. It is „Hermann der Cheruskser“. A really big monument!

 

/

 

Here you can read the height of the monument. The sword alone is 7 meters high.

 

/

 

What a wonderful day!

Detmold - 31.05.14

Hello mum,

 

Today we went into a big museum.

 

/

 

There were many old buildings. This house stands on stones, because the mice should not climb into it.

 

/

 

The umbrella for the hay looked great.

 

/

 

I love Windmills.

 

/

 

Look, Mum, so many vegetables.

 

/

 

Can you see who is on the vegetable? Snails everywhere.

 

/

 

Wonderful houses!

 

/

 

We saw this funny guy in one garden.

 

/

 

Wow, another windmill!

 

/

 

And a water wheel.

 

/

 

At the end we saw an old fuel station – funny, wasn’t it?

 

/

 

The museum was really great.

Until soon

Blomberg - 01.06.14

Hello mum,

 

On our way back we visited another small and beautiful town. The town hall:

 

/

 

There was a beautiful fountain on this place.

 

/

 

I saw many nice half-timbered-houses in Blomberg.

 

/

 

And I really liked this old water pump.

 

/

 

Another great half-timbered house – it was wonderful painted.

 

/

 

This is an old town gate.

 

/

 

Blomberg has a castle. This is the courtyard of it.

 

/

 

We saw this car there – I would have loved to drive in it.

 

/

 

Unfortunately our holiday is over and we have to go back home.

 

Greetings HolgiHH


Bad Salzdetfurth - 08.06.14

Hello mum, It is very hot!

 

/

 

Nevertheless we went into the forest.. Maybe we will find mushrooms.

 

/

 

Immediately we found one. It is called Chicken of the woods - funny color, isn’t it?

 

/

 

A beautiful flower: the Purple foxglove

 

/

 

And then this: a small King bolete. We left it in the forest, because it was too small.

 

/

 

Another mushroom: a Common stinkhorn

 

/

 

Puh, mushrooms can smell really bad!

 

/

 

These blossoms smell much better: the Black elder

 

/

 

What a beautiful mushroom!

 

/

 

We smelt it – it smells like vinegar…

 

/

 

This plant is really rare here, but beautiful: the Wood cow wheat

 

/

 

Finally I show you this mushroom. Many people love its taste.

 

/

 

What a wonderful day in the forest, although it was very hot!

World Cup - 16.06.14

Hello mum, Today the German team started in the World Cup of Soccer. We had to celebrate it. Can you see our great drink?

 

/

 

I had gold…

 

/

 

…some sweets…

 

/

 

… and potato chips.

 

/

 

Everything was ready!

 

/

 

It can start!

 

/

 

Here they go. The German team played really great!

 

/

 

It was exhausting and the drink was really yummy…

 

/

 

It continued…

 

/

 

Why did the German Coach looked so strange – Germany will win!

 

/

 

What a game and what a party!

 

/

 

 

/

 

Have a good night!

Bad Salzdetfurth - 29.06.14

Hello mum,

 

It rained today, nevertheless we wanted to go into the forest. Maybe we will find mushrooms.

 

/

 

We found mushrooms. First it was a small king bolete.

 

/

 

This beautiful mushroom is eatable... a Blusher

 

/

 

And this small mushroom is really hot – Murph told us – we didn’t try it.

 

/

 

Another mushroom: the tawny grisette

 

/

 

We had to hide under the trees because of the rain.

 

/

 

This plant looked interesting. It was not green.

 

/

 

At the end we found a nice portion of chanterelles... Yummy

 

/

 

A wonderful day in the forest!

06.07.14 - Hildesheim

Hello mum,

 

Today we took a long walk. We started in this small forest.

 

/

 

The first mushroom: The Miller- it really smelt like flour.

 

/

 

Imagine that – we found truffles.

 

/

 

And another beautiful cup

 

/

 

At the moment we only find small mushrooms  - not enough for taking it with us…

 

/

 

On our way back we walked over a big meadow.

 

/

 

There weren’t mushrooms, but beautiful flowers.

 

/

 

And this plant is very rare: the Restharrow

 

/

 

Until soon

Elend - 12.07.14

Hello Mum,

 

Today we drove to a meeting with our friends, who like mushrooms like we do. This was the meeting point. Everybody said that the pea soup was very delicious.

 

/

 

We went into a wonderful forest.

 

/

 

There was a meadow with wild orchids in it…

 

/

 

...and colorful mushrooms!

 

/

 

This forest was really great.

 

/

 

We found mushroom – wonderful color, wasn’t it?

 

/

 

I love this forest!

 

/

 

/

Derneburg -19.07.14

Hello mum, We have new guests!

 

/

 

Dicker Kumpel and Kleine Fee arrived! And imagine this – they will stay for four weeks and travel to Rügen with Murph! We all are so happy.

 

/

 

Of course we will celebrate it, but first we will go on a nice excursion.

 

/

 

There is a big castle in Derneburg.

 

/

 

In the forest was a small teahouse.

 

/

 

So many stairs…

 

/

 

Unbelievable – there exists a pyramid in the forest inside of Germany. It is the grave of the former owner of the castle.

 

/

 

I liked this house.

 

/

 

There were small houses of fishermen next to many small ponds.

 

/

 

It didn’t look like one – but this was one of the fish ponds.

 

/

 

This region is really beautiful.

Nordstemmen- 20.07.14

Hello mum,


Today we visited the Castle Marienburg. It looked beautiful!

 

/

 

Just like a fairytale…

 

/

 

The courtyard of the castle…

 

/

 

 

/

 

We were not allowed to take photos inside of the castle. But we found this funny guy at the exit and wanted to have a photo with him.

 

/

 

In the evening we celebrated the arrival of Dicker Kumpel and Kleine Fee. Murph prepared a small party:

 

/

 

We drank, ate and talked a lot.

 

/

 

... even drank, ate and talked more...

 

/

 

Maybe a little too much?

 

/

 

 

/

 

It was a wonderful evening!

Yours HolgiHH


Bad Salzdetfurth - 27.07.14

Hello mum,


Today was my last day at Murph’s home. I said goodbye to DottyCroc and Kleine Fee.

 

/

 

 

/

 

Then I went into the forest with Dicker Kumpel and Murph. At the beginning we found these beautiful flowers.

 

/

 

It wasn’t funny in the forest. Because nearly all mushrooms were eaten by snails.

 

/

 

But I found a star in the forest.

 

/

 

Often there were butterflies sitting on these flowers. Unfortunately there weren’s butterflies today.

 

/

 

This mushroom has a great colour, hasn’t it?

 

/

 

People often think that it is the king bolete. But it is not – and it is really bitter…

 

/

 

A really wonderful forest.

 

/

 

The black trumpets are really yummy, but not easy to find.

 

/

 

Then it was time to say goodbye.

 

/

 

 

/

 

Mum, I am coming home!

 

/

 

Yours HolgiHH
