.. where Ikea goes geocaching with Undu

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!!

so, like i said, me and Undu went out to test the signature items, the snails!!

our destination this time was Põlvamaa. this is actually the place where Undu’s parents live. well, most of the time, because apparently last week they had just left for vacation. so, we did not meet them. but we went to some fun places with towers and took some fotografs. also we found some geocaches in fun places! but i can’t tell you where exactly – it’s a bit of a mystery really. because they are geoCACHES, u know! so, the fotografs are from nice places nearby. quite near in fact.. but, i cannot tell you more!

so, to this first place, we had to take a little walk. it was Undu who took the walk. i was running, mostly. so, that’s why you can’t see me on this fotograf – i was already gone, hehe!

but i have to tell u, i got a little distracted by a patch of wild strawberries. in fact, i got quite a lot distracted. so, Undu almost beat me to the tower. because that was where we were going. you can see, it was really neck and neck at the towertop!

huuh, a little break to take back a few breaths after this loooong ladder. also for Undu because of his sheep costume. it was quite hot outside, u know.

and here, a group fotograf, hehe :) well, enjoying the view from the tower. look at these fun trees! it seems to me that these trees may have participated in running marathon or something like that. and it must have been real bad headwind!!

so, after enjoying the view we also had to find the cache! here’s me and Undu scanning the area for possible geocache hideouts:

(and i can secretly tell u that we found it!) so, this was the place with the tower. but we also went to some other fun places. like this one, with even bigger tower and a large of bog behind it:

u can see from Undu’s face that he is not so much fond of these heights, i’m afraid. luckily, the next place was not so high. in fact, it was more like a hole in the ground! with an extremely round waterbed – as it turns out, it’s a meteorite crater – very mysterious, if u ask me!

as u can see, not so many fotografs from these other places. it’s because we were running low on the battery and had to save some just in case something really fun happened. for example this one over here – a giraffe shadow in the mysterious meteorite crater water!! look!

i didn’t know that giraffe shadows also live in meteorite craters! well, guess what, not too many fotografs of caches or snails! but you can go geocaching too and collect them :) so, let me know what fun places u have been lately? have fun and cu l8r!

.. where Ikea introduces: Snails!

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!

Guess what? I now have a new singnature item!! and it is not a giraffe, it’s SNAILs!

(well, that last one is not a snail, it is a mini geocoin with a cow on it, very nice!) normally, i would have taken giraffes as a singnature item, u know, but giraffes are really not so easy to find! especially here, in Estland. in fact, there is rarely ANY giraffes here at all (besides me) and even then, most of them live with us, in Kadriorg! which basically means that they don’t really have small giraffe figures available, i’m afraid. so, instead, my new signature items are SNAILs!

Signature items is something u put in every (most) caches that u find, when u go geocaching. me and my friends, we go geocaching quite often in fact, so it is great to have a signature item. that way everyone can see that u have been there. although, someone else can take it with them as well. so it really gets a bit complicated for a giraffe, like me. but it is good to have one. and i have SNAILs!

i know some fellow Estonian geocachers have LADYBUGs. they are really nice. but snails are quite fun too. i have some snail pals on twitter, so i know they are fun. although the signature items are just snail figures. they are not real snails, like the ones on twitter. this week in fact we have a plan to go geocaching with Undu. so we can test out these fun snails, jei! so i guess i’d better go packing right away. until then, let me know if u have a signature item and what it is! have fun and cu l8r!
