We went on holiday to this beautiful capital for five days. After visiting some of the famous sites, we also visited Harrods which was pretty amazing. Especially the toys department really reminded us to the Christmas stores from the movies. When we visited this department we stumbled upon a penguin toy that we could resist. After buying this precious, we went on with our trip through the city. After visiting 'The tower' we had a perfect view on the Tower bridge.

While enjoying the view we came up with the idea to make a picture of our new bought penguin with the tower bridge in the background. This of course reminded us directly to the movie ‘Le fabuleux destin d’ Amelie Poulain’ where a garden gnome travels the world to check out the best locations.

So idea for setting up a website for travel stories was born. We really liked the idea of creating this website by combining the travel stories with the buddy locations to show people the best spots for their travels.

We visited some nice places since March 2009 and always remembered to bring our great companion the penguin named 'skipper'. For example, skipper visited the 'Preikestolen' in Norway and the 'Charles bridge' in the Czech republic.

To see all trips that skipper made, please visit his personal page!

We hope you enjoy our website and will become a member to make the website even better.

Kind regards,
