Travelling again

Hi everyone, 

I have just been travelling again.  I've been to Melbourne to the Woodend Teddy Bear show, and what a show it was.  It was great catching up with all Tracey's friends.  And I had a chance to go on the train again.  Here are some photos of my adventures. 

I'll be back soon, Ned

Hello there

Hi again,  I am slowly getting used to being home and have been sorting through my photos.  I was really lucky you know.  Tracey took me to some amazing places.

How is this for the inside of a shopping centre?  Imagine the fun you could have on the stairs and escalators!

Hi all, I am home now in New Zealand but I have not had a chance to share anything about the final stages of my trip as I have had a bit of jet lag!

Well, what can I say about Paris, the "City of Love".  Tracey and I had a great time there.  We did a lot of sight seeing and attended a great little bear show.

Can you see the Eiffel Tower?

And how about this for a shopping centre?

See you soon with some more pictures of my trip.

On the train again

Hi everyone,  I have been out of communication for a couple of days as its not always easy to find internet connections when you are on the move.  However, here I am back again.

I am now embarking on my journey to France.  I have to catch the train from where I am staying, into London, then get on board the Eurostar.

Here I am on the first part of my journey with all our luggage!  I am quite excited about the trip to France.  We are going on the Eurostar to Paris and it travels in tunnels under the sea to get there.  It takes a couple of hours so lets hope it doesn't stop half way as I haven't brought my snorkel!

Here I am on the Eurostar on our way to Paris.  Please don't tell Tracey I was standing on the seat.
I will be back soon to show what I find in Paris. 
Take care of yourself

Visiting Friends

Hi everyone, Ned back again.  I was going to tell you that while I was away I went and visited by friends the Chamberlains.  What a great time Tracey and I had.  They make the cutest bears.

Can you see me in their display cabinet.  I thought I would try and hide!
Let me tell you I have been trying hard to get news about the America's Cup.  As a proud kiwi I am a staunch supporter, but over here its really hard to get news.  Can you tell me how it is going? 
I look forward to catching up with you soon and of course hearing about the America's Cup.
Hugs to you all

Hi it's Ned back again.  I thought I would share a few photos of my time in Cambridge. You know there is a lot of history in England. I went to a place called Newmarket.  Its a famous horse racing town.  Take a look at this. A house from the 1600s.
This is where King Charles II stayed when going to the races in Newmarket in 1600s. 

And here I am with my friend Gail outside the Jockey Club.
I will catch up with you again soon

Hi there, Ned the Ted back again.   I have told you all about catching up with my relatives but I didn't tell you anything about Hugglets.  This is the bear show in London that Tracey and I went to.  It's a famous bear show and is held twice a year in London, and there are usually about 10,000 bears available for sale.  This time of course some of my relatives were on Tracey's sales table.  Check out the display.

Of course, I am not for sale.  See me there I'm "king of the castle". 

And Tracey had her "Bears by Tracey" artist bears there and they looked great on the table too.

Well, we are heading back to London again now to get ready for an exciting weekend.  I will tell you more about that as it happens.

Look after yourself
