Hi Lost,
I'm so glad to see you again and to see that you are doing well! I'm sure you will enjoy your time with Tome.
If you two sit together with one or two (or three ) beer, you can tell him what's happened to you in the past 5 weeks.
I want to tell you, Oliver and I have found a small variation of big bird from sesame street on the stairs of a condo some days before. Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1071054.jpgWe wanted to send him to look after you.
But now little big bird will follow your journey on DPC .
Have a nice time and take care of yourself!
Many greetings from Germany!

Then, finally in Ohrid!

All in all it was a perfect day!

Happy to see he's enjoying his travels! I shared the pictures on Facebook with my 8 yr old niece. She thought the whole thing was really cool and asked "When can he come and stay with me?" I thought that was quite cute. I think she thought it a bit odd that so many adults were having fun with a soft cuddly toy penguin, but...

Nice to see this going again.

All right... Lost is on his way to Alessandro in Italy. Bye bye little one, we had the best weekend together - wouldn't mind a couple more, but the world awaits. Best of luck on your journey, make the people around you smile, do your magic just as you did with us.

Future hosts, beware... you are not prepared for the amount of cuteness. He is an adorable penguin, you might will be tempted to keep him.

Thank you Tome, if you could post them to facebook or send them to me so I can update FB that would be great thanks.
06/04/2013 11:54:40 AM · #261

Hi guys!

Lost spent a wonderful weekend with my family. My wife Loredana kept calling him Pinguino... I don't know if it's ok for him, but nevermind ;)

A couple of hours driving to reach Castelluccio di Norcia, one of the landscape photographers paradise.

He was very tired so he decided to take a nap before visiting the place:

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1072220.jpg

I can say that my little son Andrea is already in love with that lovely Lost:

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1072205.jpg

As soon as we went out Lost met an old friend and decided to fly with him:

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1072209.jpg

But Castelluccio di Norcia is really famous for its flowers. Despite of being in the mountains (1400 metres above sea level), June and July are flowering time. So Lost and Andrea have been playing together for a while:

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1072213.jpg

Lost was impressed. He decided to walk stagger following the main road:

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1072219.jpg

Later Andrea and his mother were tired so Lost and I kept on taking photos and planning a couple of time-lapses:

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1072212.jpg Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1072211.jpg

Next morning Lost was quite hungry so he had breakfast with us:

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1072207.jpg

It seemed it was not enough so we took some tea for him:

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1072208.jpg

After the breakfast we left Castelluccio and reached Norcia, a nice town, famous for its food. Lost decided to visit the historic centre:

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1072230.jpg

Weather was very hoy so Lost needed a fountain spilling fresh water:

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1072231.jpg

But as I said before, Norcia is famous for its food and Lost was attracted by these shops:

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1072214.jpg Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1072215.jpg

Later he insisted to pay for our lunch:

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1072228.jpg

It's impossible to be in Italy and not eating a pizza:

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1072216.jpg Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1072217.jpg

But not only pizza. Gelato is one of the best things in Italy:

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1072210.jpg

Maybe he ate too much stracciatella!

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1072218.jpg

The weekend could have been perfect but a tragic event happened. I received a couple of photos... see what happened:

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1072222.jpg

They sent me a couple of messages:

Lost is ours, Lost is in trouble!

Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1072223.jpg

Let's see what will happen tomorrow...
