.. 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 finds metal mushrooms in Tartu :-O

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!
guess what, last week i went to play a little bit of geocaching in Tartu! As u know, geocaching is lots of fun and takes you to lots of fun places. this time it took me to near a theater called Vanemuine. I have never been to a theater, so i don’t know much about it other than it is really old. in fact, it is so old that it has mushrooms out of metal growing out of the hill!! yes, look:

everybody knows metal mushrooms take AGES to grow, so this theater really has to be old.. and, u know the most funny thing – it started raining about 3 minutes after taking this fotograf! so, clear skies are not so gr8 at telling u whether it is going to rain or not, i’m afraid! so i did not have time to take too many more, although i wanted to take a closer look of this guy, also made of metal. he must be really really old too, i guess. i wonder what is he telling these mushrooms..? please let me know if u have any information about that, in the comments! tack!

i can secretly tell u that i found the cache, hehe ;) so, if u are in the area, check it out too! have fun and cu l8r!
