A little known fact about weasels: They are creatures of the sea. Sailors idolise them as lucky charms, and in 1715 weasels even became the international trading currency. At least for that afternoon when King “Mad as a squirrel” Arthur IV. forgot to take his pills.
Anyhow, the weasel felt instantly at home on board of the Euroferry “Olympia”. Once a proud vessel in the Baltic Sea, now a worn-down ferry in the Ionic Sea. The weasel had lots of fun while crossing the ionic sea between Italy and Greece.
Trieste – a city in north-western italy, close to the slowenian border. Trieste is a centre for trade and tourism. Its congested streets are sprawling with life, even in hot summer days like the one in june 2015, when the weasel discovered the second best thing to Starcookies: Starcookiemooncake!

In 2008 the Weasel travelled with Raven. They used a witch circle to make a small jump into Otherworld, a dimension where magic still exists.
Oh, and the Weasel was compared to ferrets.
In 2009, the weasel went on a boat tour. Except that it was not a boat but a full blown cruise liner, the AIDA BLUE. Insanely fast the weasel became everybodys darling and the mascot of the cruise. It got its own boarding card. And at one point, it was invited to the bridge and finally steered the whole ship!

The weasel danced on the volcano. Not as a figure of speach, but literally.
Most time I don´t know where the weasel is or what it is doing at the moment. But every so often it returns home, and occasionally it SMELLS. Than it´s time for watery whirligig. That´s real fun, at leat for the uninvolved watcher. The weasel doesn´t like it and is grumpy for days after his trip in the washing machine.
In 2011, the weasel traveled all over france, including Avignon, the Pont du Gard and cassis. It liked Saint Tropez most, but thats because weasels are luxuryloving creatures. The journey was special in another way. The weasel was accompanied by a ladyweasel.
In 2008 the weasel met Rocko Schamoni, a famous german singer/songwriter/actor/Whatnot.
I don´t know what happened that night in Hamburg, but the next mornig the weasel had a hangover.
