#2.16 Tokyo, Shinjuku Gyoen, Tina Holmstedt, April 24, 2015

 

Tina Holmqvist has been on a very exciting expedition to Tokyo where she and Moonhouse #2.16 have been exploring the legendary cherry blossom in the Shinjuku Gyoen garden. As we all can see the house blends well with the cherry blossom. One would wish that the house could bring a cherry tree to the Moon where the blossoms would be off-set wonderfully agains the black sky and crisp star field. This expedition is poetic to the level that we have to rename Moonhouse #2.16 to Cherry Blossom.

We thank you for sharing the beautiful pictures from your exciting expedition Tina. We wish you fair winds for your coming expeditions.

On its journeys across the great American continent what was bound to happen has transpired. Moonhouse #2.37 has followed in the foot steps of #2.19 when it and Hans Hallberg made landfall in Las Vegas on February 20. The keen eyed observer will recognize the scene below from a landfall made by #2.19.

Today we are treated to a one of a kind, never seen before picture from the colourful land under water of a tropical coral reef. An earlier landfall on this expedition brought us to the well cared for nest of the Volgelkop Bower bird. On  this landfall (waterfall(?)), on January 2, 2014, Robin Lilja and co-explorer Niclas Evestedt explored the coral reefs of Melissa’s Garden off the coast of the Raja Ampat Islands near Papua, Indonesia.

Thank you for the stunning picture* and congratulations, Robin and Niclas, to your very successful expedition. We wish you fair winds for your coming adventures.

*According to rumour ther are more stunningly beautiful underwater pictures like this which we hope to share soon….

It is an old truth that ”the house always wins” and in this case we have a win-win situation when Hans Hallberg brought Moonhouse #2.37 to the Trump Taj Mahal Casino in Atlantic City on November 6, 2013.

Congratulations Hans to your successful expedition and fair winds for your coming adventures.

(Remember to also have a look at the report from the expedition to Taj Mahal in Agra, India.)

The Moonhouse really has a predisposition toward exotic beaches and the ocean. Perhaps this is in anticipation of and longing for an eternal existence on the shores of the Sea of Tranquility on the Moon.

Here the seasoned explorer Petra Vainionpää treats us to a magnificent scene from the Maldives in the Indian Ocean with Moonhouse #2.35 basking in sunlight with bungalows built in stilts in the back ground. (Wouldn’t we all have liked to be there to take the picture…)

Congratulations on your successful expedition Petra and fair winds for your coming adventures. (Petra was one of the first explorers and something tells me that the Maldives may not be the last landfall Moonhouse #2.35 makes with Petra. We certainly wish to continue to part-take in Petras exotic expeditions wherever they take here and the Moonhouse Expedition.
