.. where Ikea goes to Egypt!

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!

ooh, did anyone mention that i have been busy lately? well, guess what! the good news is that besides being busy, i have also been travelling, jei! This time Egypt! Although, i must say it was mostly just hanging around in a Hotel, but that’s ok too. For a giraffe! and i took some fotografs!!
So, lets start from the beginning. Good news number 1: the pool.


we, giraffes are very much into pools. we don’t like swimming a lot, as you might know, but still, pools are gr8, if u ask me! Especially the ones which have a giant Frog sitting inside. High five, frog!
Second good news about the hotel was this – guess what – they had statue of a giraffe in the driveway!!


This is like best news ever from a hotel in Egypt! And they even don’t have many giraffes in Egypt. Only zoos maybe..? But they have camels, i can tell u that much, hehe!
Good news #3: really loooooooong bridges, like a looooooooong giraffe’s neck. But u cannot walk on a neck, i’m afraid. Or sit on it, for that matter.


Good news number FOUR: The Sunshine! So here’s me, sunbathing, jei:


Always gr8 to travel to a place with lots of sun. Especially in the wintertime – not as much sun here in Estland in the winter, i’m afraid. Also a bit colder, it seems! Like minus 22 last night, hehe!

Also, quite fun: hotel at night! See if u can spot the giraffe (it’s me) in this fotograf:


ok, it was not that difficult. Still quite nice, don’t u think?

So lots of sunshine and other fun things in Egypt! I took lots of more fotografs but my friend Sipsik asked not to put all of them in my blog. It may be because they are mostly about me and this giraffe statue, hehe :)

Unfortunately had no chance to go geocaching this time, but maybe next time? But I have to say also that only 7 caches in this area, Sharm el sheikh! Have u been there? Let me know in comments! Until then, have fun and cu l8r!

Oh and also, meet my new friend, Mr. Duck – sunbathing, hehe!


.. where Jonas moves in!

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!

woohoo, guess what happened! i had so many things going on that i forgot to do some blog posts! that’s ok, it happens with us, giraffes, sometimes. Giraffes are usually very busy, if u ask me! But in last weeks, really really many important things have happened. first of all, Holland lost in football. This is the sad news. Happy news is that we have new people and giraffes that have moved in with us! For example Lotta – but i don’t have a picture with her. But more importantly, let me present – Jonas!

Jonas is a giraffe, like me. Me and my friend Sipsik found Jonas in a shop, living together with a radiator and six pairs of shoes. Not much fun, i’m afraid. So we asked if he would like to move in with us instead! Jonas is lots of fun, he likes adventure and climbing trees!

he is not into fotografs very much because he is quite shy – as u see from the first fotograf, hehe. He also likes jumping up and down and playing hide-and-seek (gr8 news). That’s as much as we have found out so far! Maybe we’ll find out more about Jonas later, but we’ll see. Is there anything you would like to know? If u have, let me know in comments! tack!
Have fun and cu l8r!

.. where something very sweet happens!

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!

guess what! like my friend Otter says: Best Thing Ever happened! Well, definitely in top 5, if you ask me! The other four being: acacia leaves, the invention of sunbathing, discovery of ice cream and the arrival of Olafs! And now – i got this message on my FB page:

Dear Ikea,
I´m Charlie and I look just like you. I am so happy that I found you.


For a long time I´ve been looking for someone of our kind and was quite desperate – perhaps that I am the only one in the big wide world. But now I´ve found you.

I send a foto of me and think we could be twins. I live in Germany and hope we can be friends.

It´s great that you can travel so much around our Planet. I will travel to Egypt in August.


I hope you are well
Your Charlie

This is the best message ever!! Here’s me looking at the fotograf that Charlie has taken of himself (below). And u have to believe me, it is not me, it’s Charlie (also giraffe)!! It may be that we ARE in fact twins! Because, u know, although I am from Sweden, my family is from Holland and Germany is quite near there! Next door even, maybe – so it’s possible u know..

WOHOO! WOHOO! WOHOO!! JEI JEI! JEI!! Giraffes in my looft!!
