Hi Juka!
Sorry for the long absence! But don’t you think it was a great vacation; some very busy weeks and just a few days off... ;)
I had once (more than forty years ago) a pen pal girl from Caen; but never made it there. Great way to see it now through your lens. Great poictures!!
Meanwhile Blogtrotter is still turning around Iceland. Enjoy and have a fabulous weekend!
