Important notes to people who want to follow me 

Hello, nice that you are considering to follow me! Please read this notes before pressing the follow button.

I see following as something that is a bit personal and I prefer to have some control over it. That is why I decided to make requirements for everyone who wants to follow me. Everyone who wants to follow me has to:
-Have a good enough bio. Something like two sentences is enough, but something like "man, USA, badminton, stamps, loves Paraguay" is not.
-Send me a DM in which you tell something about yourself and why you want to follow me. I will not judge that DM very strict, it is also like a 'proof' that you have read this. There is a higher chance that I accept you as follower when you have interacted with me in the past.

Further: Feel free to interact with me!

Accessible toots 

I want that toots are accessible to everyone. When I add images to my toot, I will give them all a description. If you think that a description is not good enough, please say it in a kind way.
If a toot of someone else has a picture without a description, I am not going to boost that toot. If all the pictures in the toot have a description, I will boost it when I like the content.

Fun train fact: You can take a train from the island of Sicily to the Italian mainland. There is no bridge or tunnel, instead there's a train ferry.

Yup, a ferry with train tracks which the train rolls onto, is ferried across the Messina strait and then rolls back onto the mainland tracks.

Must be have some interesting engineering solution for the problem of connecting tracks onto a moving boat.

Bremen and the Town Musicians 

In Bremen, you see everywhere the Town Musicians of Bremen; there is a statue, you see it in every tourists shop. It is on postcards of Bremen en there is graffiti of it.

But..... The Town Musicians of Bremen never arrive in Bremen.

TodayIs on this Saturday 

You all have to wait I-dont-know-how-many hours for TodayIs. It is here half past twelve in the night and I am on my phone, so making one is a little difficult. And I don't want to start my laptop, because it is too late.

But according to my calendar from which you tear off a sheet every day (don't know the English word for it), it exactly sixty years ago that Jamaica became independent!

I'm going to bed now. I hope you'll all have a good night/day :dragon_happy: :ms_smile:

I wanted to have a family planner for myself, so I can order my activities. I bought one for the next year.

I actually want to have also one for this year. But calendars are difficult to get and maybe it is a bit of waste to buy one and only use the last few months.

So I thought this evening: "I am gonna draw one myself, with only the last five months. Based on my planner for the next year."

Such beautiful views come across! I am outside together with my human.
It is incredibly lovely to see the outside world.
Suddenly, I feel claws at my head and something pulls me up.
My human has to let me go, but where am I going? What is happening?
Looking up, I see the belly of a dragon. This is strange...
The dragon seems to bring me to his den, while my human screams to give me back, which the dragon does not do.
Eventually, I ended up in a huge pile of plushies. Not bad, though my human will miss me so much.
Time for an escape plan, and maybe I can show my human this dragon hoard!
