.. where Ikea discovers a boat with a giraffe on it

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!
like i said, on my way back from Stockholm, I discovered this other boat that was passing. And on this boat – a giraffe!! jei!! here’s the fotografs:

apparently, it is not really a boat, but a ferry, my friend Leenu says. Ferries are gr8. For exempel, they start with “F”, which is a good thing. a ferry with a giraffe on it is even better. Although i have to say – as u saw maybe – there were also some other animals. Penguins i think. Penguins are also very much fun. I also discovered another ship, a red one:

but no giraffe there i’m afraid..
just right after this red ferry i discovered a big mysterious shadow on this island that we passed. Take a look:

quite daunting, don’t you think? fear not, apparently it was just the shadow of our ship, a big white ferry – my friend Sipsik said. Unfortunately, no giraffe on it neither..

I did find out from my friend Lotte yesterday that it is an Estonian artist Navitrolla who has painted this boat. Jei, his giraffes look gr8, don’t you think?

ps. here’s also proof that mr Sun maybe living in the Stockholm area:

.. where Ikea is geocaching in Stockholm

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!

.. where Ikea finds a Pig, a Duck and the Sunset on the boat

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!
finally chance to upload some fotografs from my gr8 fun trip to Stockholm, jei! This is part I – few pics from the boat from Tallinn. In fact, it takes all night to go from Tallinn to Stockholm with a boat, so lots of things can happen on the trip – so it is gr8 to take your camera with you. For example, first of all, the boat leaves quite early in the evening. So, if you are lucky, like me, a giraffe, u can have the sun outside. This is really a good thing because then you can go outside on a deck for sunbathe, jei!

Sunbathing is one of my favorite things, as u might know. And it is always a gr8 thing to start off a trip with sunbathing, u know. Because then your trip is already a success and it even hasn’t really started. For exampel, i was already out on the sun deck before the boat left the port! gr8 success!
But, suddenly (i was still sunbathing at the time) i felt that someone is observing me. As it turned out, it was a Pig, peeking out of the cabin window:

hehe, a cheerful-looking pink fellow, don’t you think? :) he was, i’m afraid, a foreigner, because i could not understand a word he was saying. It sure wasn’t any of the languages that we, giraffes can speak. however, it sounded very much fun, so i could say we had a conversation. (a conversation is when two or more animals talk to each other, my friend Leenu says. It’s a lot like talking, but more interesting, but less fun). Except ours was fun too!
One thing that i did learn from mr Pig was that there could be more animals inside these cabins. So i wandered off to peek into windows. Quite soon i discovered one more foreign bird – a Duck of some kind!

We’ll, he looked like a duck to me, what do you think? Again, a foreigner with funny sounding language. It could be Chinese, even? It’s all quite mystery to me because there was no really good way to find out and my good friend Leenu who knows all these foreign words was not with me. We did have a fun conversation with additional making of funny faces, which we, giraffes are quite good at. Lot’s of fun, if you ask me, hehe!
I did not see any more animals in the windows after that, but i did see other ships. Unfortunately it was a bit too dark for my camera and those fotografs were not really good ones. And i did get a really nice fotograf of a ship on my way back!! But i will post it another time! Until then, let me know if you have been on a boat to Stockholm and if you have seen any animals on the boat? Have fun and cu l8r!
