.. where Ikea goes to Prangli

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!

.. where Ikea is hunting for ice-cream

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!

now. as i mentioned earlier, there is one thing every giraffe knows – when u go to Paris, u need to have some ice-cream! so, after some sightseeing..

.. and some geocaching (: ..

.. i went to hunt for some ice-cream from Île Saint-Louis!

it is an island in fact, right in the middle of the river! it is actually quite small island, so it seems to me that you can only find ice-cream shops there. and also a restaurant with cows on the windows. i actually told Undu about these cows and he was totally psyched! unfortunately, i have no fotografs of those cows.

ooh, this one tasted really really good. i think ice-cream is moving up fast in my top 100 best things to eat. (if u ask what place, then i’d say around 24th, because there are still 19 dishes of acacia leaves and 4 from apples that definitely stay ahead.) but there is one important thing – there is really two different kinds of ice-cream (shops) on that louis island – Amorino and Berthillon. and if u ask me, then they are totally different. so, after i finished my amorino, i was still a little hungrig, so i went to hunt for that other one! in fact, there was even a line for this one:

but eventually everyone got their ice-creams, including me – as u can see from the fotograf below. ooh, and by the way there has been some really nice weather last few weeks, so i tried some local ice-cream here and it is not that good. so, if u are travelling to Paris, then go to the ice-cream island! or, perhaps u have been there? which one did u like, the amarino or the berthillon? or maybe u can recommend me more very good ones to try? let me know in comments! so, have fun and cu l8r!
