Mia's holiday at her grandpa's

The countryside is awesome!

Mia was a bit afraid that it would be boring at her grandpa's. She has never been there for so long without her parents. It turned out though that the summer in the countryside was great! She spent a lot of time with her grandpa, her uncle Edmund and grandpa's friend - Luise. They had many adventures together.

The campfire

On the last day of the holiday, Mia's grandpa invited everyone to a lovely bonfire. Mia came up with an idea of a storytelling game. Everyone was supposed to tell an intriguing story they had in their lives.

Greenland

Greenland is a very big island. It's the biggest one in the world. It is set in the far north, and Inuits live there. You can go there by plane or ship. Mia's grandpa traveled there on a ship, and it took him two almost months to get there! When he arrived at the island, he spent his time observing polar bears. Greenland is their natural habitat.

Luise's story

Luisa is a scientist, biologist to be precise. In her work, she studies the lives of insects. One day, when she took a stroll close to her house, she noticed a few bumblebees trying to find a spot for a new nest at the local construction site.

Helping Bumblebees

A construction site is not the best place for bumblebees to build new nests. It may be difficult for them to settle there. Luisa decided to help them. She carefully put the bumblebees into a box and took them to the countryside where they would be safe. There are fields and meadows in the country, so the bumblebees will have many good places for their nests.

Mia's story

Mia couldn't decide which of her own stories to tell. She had so many adventures during the holidays! She finally decided to tell the story that Luisa, as a biologist, would like the most. It was the story about an overturned log that Mia found in the forest on her walk with Teo.

New house for the little ones

An overturned log might seem a little bit sad. This is because it's not a growing tree anymore. However, when Mia looked closer at it, she noticed that such a fallen tree becomes a new house for many little animals. The log was all covered in moss, in which ants, snails, bugs, and even a lizard, found their home.

Coming back home

The story about the log was the last one that evening. On the following day, grandpa took Mia and Teo to the railway station. Then, they took the train back home, where Mia's parents' waited for her together with a newly-born baby.

During her stay at grandpa's, Mia learned a lot of new fascinating things. You can read all her notes in the Knowledge section.
