News from Nijmegen


Yesterday we went to the oldest city in the Netherlands, called Nijmegen.  The weather was nice and we did lots of things.  We saw an amazing maze, where one of my humans nearly got lost:


We strolled along the river Waal:



We met Elvis:


We walked around the old town:






Then we hung out in a lovely park:



...where we met a family of black swans:

What's Up in Wassen


Well, not much to be honest...  It's a small village in Switzerland which has 7 hotels, 4 banks, 2 old people's homes, 1 little supermarket and a church and not much else.  My humans and I are were driving from Italy to Germany and we had to pass through Switzerland.  

Normally my human doesn't like stopping there because everything is too expensive, but we had just passed through a big long tunnel called the St. Gotthart, when the car suddenly started making big noises.  A nice man towed our car to a garage and we all had to stay in a hotel in Wassen.  It was nice, because I was finally out of the car and we could walk around the big mountains there.









We even saw some brown cows that make the brown milk for the famous Swiss chocolate.

Frolicking in Florence


Today my male human and his nephew Jaap went to Florence to pick up my female human who arrived on an aeroplane.
As Jaap had never been to Florence except on some kind of computer game, we went a bit early to walk around the city.  We saw this big cathedral,



Some old bridge with houses on it and squillions of people.




Some naked man called David on a box.


An old man with a pidgeon on his head who could pee from his knee.


And lots of other buildings


But in the end I turned out to be the most photographed attraction, just because I like scratching my back by holding on to my lead with my mouth and letting my human drag me along the pavement.  Don't know what's so special about that...


In the end I was glad to be out of the city and I was even happier to see my human again!

Short Stop in Hungary


On our way back from Bulgaria and Romania we stopped over in a country called Hungary, although I wasn't more hungry than usual.  We stayed with our old friends Krisztina and Alex.  It was nice to see some familiar faces!  They live in a small village in the middle of nowhere called NagyszĂ©kely.  Not even my human knows how to say that.  Our friends have a nice garden there, but there's not much else to see...

Clowning in Cluj


As my human had promised we went to see my bestest friend Negrud that we met in Bulgaria and his humans Adela and Dan in a place called Cluj.  He lives in a gift economy hotel, which means, it's a hotel where you don't have to pay if you don't want to.  You just leave some food or drink or money or anything if you like and live with everyone else in the house.  It has a lovely large common room where Negrud and I could clown about.




I also wanted to play with the cats, but they didn't want to play with me...



They also have a nice garden.  I especially liked the welly boot planters. 


So if ever you find yourself in Cluj, apparently it's a nice place, but we didn't have time to explore, go and see our friends at Casa de Cultura Permanente.
