Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!
guess what! it’s gr8 big snow outside!! but i can’t go outside, because there is snow everywhere and also, very cold!!
But it seems that i have not posted the fotograf from my last trip with my friend Piia. In fact, we went to Konuvere. It’s a small place little bit of South-West of Tallinn. The gr8 thing about Konuvere is the bridge. It is quite old, about 150 years. In fact, when it was built, probably it was the longest such bridge in the World!! – my friend Lotte told me. So it is quite old and quite long. And it is renovated. Renovated is when u take a really old bridge and make it look like it was new. So it does not look like old, but it is! It says so on the little sign. I can also tell it is old. Because nobody uses it any more. For exempel there is another bridge for cars just next to it, hehe! Funny, don’t u think? Oh, and we went geocaching, too! So here comes the fotograf. Thanks to my friend, Piia. Have u been travelling to any old bridges recently? Let me know!! Have fun and cu l8r!
Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!
guess what!? i got to do some travelling last week! to an island. it’s not Madagascar, i’m afraid, but it is Prangli. It is a small island just a little bit North from Kadriorg. You have to take a boat! so we did!
as u can see, it was called Vesta. it’s really nice boat, but we, giraffes, are not so fond of boats. especially small one like these, because it takes a lot of time to arrive. luckily, we had little bags of snack with us!
but, finally we arrive at this very nice small island, jei! but there were some really fun houses. for exempel, they had grass growing on the roofs!!
and even then, nobody lived inside the houses. apparently, they were for tourists, and giraffes. like me!
But there were also other things on the island besides houses and trees. for example, there were also stones. This is the biggest one that i could find: the red stone!
it’s not too red, it’s more like pink, but it also has stuff growing on it, so it is quite hard to tell exactly. the good thing about this stone is that there is also a geocache nearby, hehe! and we discovered the cache and logged. good fun, if u ask me!
other things that are on the island and are red and are not stones, trees or houses are mushrooms! we, giraffes are not very much fond of mushrooms. but i like the name “mushroom”. somehow the other part of the word is room, but it has nothing to do with rooms, i’m afraid, because they mostly grow outside. for exampel this beautiful red mushroom called “fly agaric“:
as my smart friend Lotte explained, these red mushrooms also grow elsewhere, not only on Prangli. Just like the houses, trees and stones, apparently – but not necessarily in the same place. including the sea!
so, highly recommended by Ikea to take a trip to this Prangli island if u are in the area. But what about you? Have u been to any islands recently? le me know! have fun and cu l8r!
Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!
as u know, i was travelling to Stockholm a little while ago. Now, let me post some fotografs about what i saw while there, geocaching. for exempel, here’s me on a cliff with a cache that i found!
also, we left a travel bug inside that we had brought along from Estland. i have to say, giraffes are not particularly good at climbing caches, but this one was quite OK. for giraffes :)
Here’s another place that has a cache nearby. it is Stockholm’s Cruise terminal, in fact!
This little boat is not a cruise ship, i’m afraid. instead, you can take this boat to downtown or some islands. Well, we did not take this boat, because there were more caches to be found elsewhere, hehe! Like, for example here, near this guy with a horse:
A King in fact. Quite a few caches on this island, but i’m not going to tell u where exactly. U need to go and find out yourself, hehe! hmm, Leenu tells me to leave some tips.. OK, here’s one: the cache is not-too-far-from here:
but it is not inside the flower. Instead, there’s smell inside. Quite nice smell too, if u ask me!
Found another guy with horses on a house, while resting for a bit:
but apparently, there is this Park called Skansen just left of here. I did not have time to go inside, but i heard it is like a Zoo, among other things. I like Zoos alot, so maybe i need to come back here next time. But i did some walking around the wall of this park and i found this cool tree:
It’s quite near the park entrance, where they sell tickets. I tried to find out how much it is for Giraffes, but there was no information about that. So maybe it is for free? But, like i said, i did not have time, and also, i did not have any Kronor, should it not have been free for Giraffes, like me. So instead we tried to find a cache nearby this tree (we did) and we also met a fellow local geocacher! greetings!
and, it was almost time to go back. I did find another park with lots and lots of flowers (below) and a huge fountain with geese figures (above). Yes, I did have some time for sunbathe – if you wanted to ask. It was very very nice sunny weather in Stockholm. In fact, every time i have been to Stockholm, it is sunny there.. Maybe mr Sun lives in the area?
Well, i will go and ask my friends Leenu and Lotte about this, they seem to know these things. Until then, u can let me know what you think? Also, have u been to Stockholm and/or geocaching there? What is your favorite spot? Have fun and cu l8r!
