  • Wow – I am speechless, and long for some hot, summer days again. I really LOVE your palm tree picture from your lounge chair. I want to have that view for a few days 😉 And a whale safari, that is so amazing. I did that once in Norway, and it made me feel so tiny. And so in one with the whole. Kristina, I am already looking forward to your next images and story. Lot´s of Love from Trini in NorwayReplyCancel
