Schmiding Zoo

This post is way overdue, since my birthday was back in the beginning of June. Yup, June. Almost two months ago. But it took me time to edit all the photos and to decide which ones I wanted to post on the blog! So here it is, what we did on my birthday? Markus took the day off so we could spend it together and we started off by sharing a breakfast in a new place near us. I had no idea where we were going to go afterwards and I was clapping like a small kid when we got there: Schmiding Zoo!

Schmiding Zoo

First off we saw some birds. I have to say usually I’m not a big fan of birds, I feel they’re just sitting there and doing nothing, but this is a small zoo and they’re actually very used to people and wanted to play with us. Some of them chirped a lot, as if they were talking.

I could even pet this one’s paw, she was the cutest and definitely didn’t want us to leave!

There were some baby giraffes too! They were so close to us too!

I had gone to get us water in the blue stand behind me and the woman working there was a foreigner. I imediately recognized the accent and I asked where she’s from, she very shyly answered Portugal. I started talking to her in Potuguese and we ended up talking for a bit. When I got back to Markus he was like “Were you just talking Portuguese?” and when I said yes he said “I can’t let you go anywhere alone, you always find people to talk to!”

This one followed us all through the fence, until it couldn’t anymore!

My birthday was a few days after the incident with the Gorilla that got shot dead because of the irresponsible parents who let their kid into the gorilla’s den. The gorilla’s at Schmiding were the cutest, this one was just sitting there looking at the people below, its friend was catching things in the water stream they have and mostly I think they were bored and hot. The one pictures below was just sitting alone in its den and made eye contact with me, then looked at the bench and then back at me, like he was signaling us to sit down. You can see him looking directly at me in the picture.

We couldn’t pet the animals, as the petting part of the zoo was closed, but hey, I still got to touch a giraffe – that gotta count for something, right? 

It was an amazing day and we even had time to go shopping (birkenstocks!) and then went out for dinner at a very good pizza place! I wanted to spend it just with Markus and it was the perfect day. My parents called twice and my aunt Odete called to congratulate too, which was very sweet of her. 

What would your perfect birthday-day be like?

Mein Geburtstag war anfangs Juni. Also, fast zwei Monate her. Daher kommt dieses Post schon extrem spät. Aber besser spät, als nie, oder? An meinem Geburtstag hat sich Markus frei genommen, um mit mir den Tag zu verbringen. Wir sind frühstücken gegangen und danach war alles eine Überraschung, denn ich wusste nicht was mich erwartet. Aber wenn wir angekommen sind, habe ich mich wie ein kleines Kind gefreut: wir sind ins Schmiding Zoo gegangen!

Schmiding Zoo

Als erstes haben wir einige Vögel gesehen. Ich muss gestehen, ich finde Vögel meistens langweilig. Aber diese sind an Leute gewohnt und waren total lieb! Sie sind sogar ans Zaun gekommen und ich hab sogar die Pfoten von dem unteren gestreichelt. Laut waren sie auch alle, als ob sie sprechen wollten.

Die Giraffen waren das Highlight für mich! Ich konnte sogar eine kurz anfassen, als ich ihr einen Ast zum essen gegeben habe – cool, oder?

Ich bin für uns Wasser kaufen gegangen und die Dame hatte einen Akzent, den ich sofort wiedererkannt habe. Als ich Ihr fragte, sagte sie mir fast schüchtern, das Sie aus Portugal kommt. Da haben wir natürlich gleich miteinander portugiesisch geredet. Als ich zurück zu Markus ging, fragte er “Wieso hast du mit Ihr portugiesisch gesprochen?” und danach “Ich kann dich nirgendwo alleine gehen lassen!”

Die ist am Zaun gelaufen, bis sie uns nicht mehr folgen konnte!

Mein Geburtstag war ein Paar Tage nachdem der Gorilla in der USA umgebracht wurde, weil die Mutter nicht auf Ihr Kind aufpassen konnte. Aber diese Gorillas waren sehr lieb. Der obere war einfach gelangweilt (und wahrscheinlich auch warm, denn es war schon heiß) und hat da gesessen und die Leute angeschaut, während sein Freund mit dem Wasser gespielt hat. Der Untere Gorilla hat mir sogar Leid getan, er wirkte so alleine. Er hat mich angeguckt und dann ein Sessel angeschaut, als ob er wollte, das wir da sitzen. Im Foto könnt Ihr sehen wie er mich direkt anschaut.

Wir konnten nicht zum Streichel Zoo, weil es geschlossen war, aber immerhin habe ich eine Giraffe angefasst! Das ist doch schon ziemlich cool, oder? 

Es war ein sehr schöner Tag und wir hatten sogar Zeit zum Shoppen (Hallo birkenstocks!) und am Abend sind wir in ein Italienisches Restaurant in unsere Nähe gefahren. Ich wollte den Tag mit Markus verbringen und er hat es perfekt geplant. Meine Eltern haben zwei Mal angerufen und sogar meine Tante Odete rief am Abend an, was sehr lieb von Ihr war.

Wie würde Eure perfekter Geburtstag aussehen?

Este post está mais que atrasado, visto o meu aniversário ter sido no início de Junho. Sim, há quase dois meses! Precisei de algum tempo para editar as fotografias e escolher as que eu queria partilhar aqui – e acreditem, são muitas fotografias! O que eu fiz nos meus anos? O Markus tirou o dia para poder celebrar comigo e começámos o dia com um pequeno-almoço partilhado num sítio perto de nós. Eu não fazia ideia do que iria acontecer no resto do dia, porque ele fez questão que fosse surpresa. Quando chegámos ao destino e eu vi o que iríamos fazer, comecei aos saltinhos como uma criança! Fomos ao Zoo de Schmiding!

Os primeiros animais logo à entrada eram alguns passáros. Eu confesso que pássaros não são os meus faovritos em jarding zoológicos e acho sempre que não fazem nada. Estes estão bastante habituados a pessoas e vinham até às grades a querer conversa. Alguns parecia mesmo que falávam connosco!

Até consegui dar algumas festas na patinha da caturra, que esticava a pata para fora a pedir festas. Coisa mai linda!

As girafas foram uma atracção enorme para mim, que nunca tinha visto uma tão de perto e até consegui roubar uma festa quando dei um ramo a uma delas!

Eu fui buscar água ao quiosque azul e apercebi-me de que a senhora que lá estava a trabalhar tinha sotaque português, quando lhe perguntei de onde era ela de forma quase envergonhada disse que vinha de Portugal. Comecei logo a falar com ela em português e ficámos na conversa uns minutos. Quando voltei para ao pé do Markus ele perguntou-me “Porque é que tu estavas a falar português?” e quando lhe expliquei “Não te posso deixar ires a lado nenhum sem começares a falar com pessoas!”

Esta seguiu-nos pelas grades até não conseguir mais.

Os meus anos foram uns dias depois da situação em que o gorila nos Estados Unidos foi morto por causa da mãe irresponsável não ter tido cuidado com o filho. Os gorilas aqui eram bem pacatos, o acima estava sentado a olhar para as pessoas a passar e o colega a brincar com a água. O da fotografia abaixo até me deu pena – estava sentado sozinha na área dele e até olhou diretamente para mim. Depois olhou para um banco que havia do lado de fora, como se estivesse a dizer para nos sentarmos lá. Na fotografia podem vê-lo a olhar diretamente para mim.

Não tivemos oportunidade de ir ao zoo de festas, porque estava fechada, mas mesmo assim pude tocar numa girafa o que já é muito bom!

Foi um dia muito bom e ainda tivemos tempo de ir às compras (birkenstocks!) e depois fomos jantar fora a uma pizaria perto de mim. Pude passar o dia com o Markus, que o tornou perfeito. Os meus pais ligaram-me duas vezes e a minha Tia Dete também me ligou ao fim do dia, o que me aqueceu o coração.

Qual seria o vosso dia de aniversário perfeito?

    Hallo,

    Schmieding ist ein schöner Tierpark und perfekt für den Geburtstag. Ich hatte im Juli und sind zuerst Essen gewesen in Linz und dann zum Höhenrausch. Vom Eisdealer habe ich mir dann eine Abkühlung gegönnt.
    Liebe Grüße
    Tanja
