The wind gently caresses your face and you wander along the trail with one eye open for any animals you might come across. A few chipmunks warily eye you, a […]
A woman, not very tall, with blond-reddish hair, jumps out of her chair to welcome you as you enter the room. Her great big smile – the kind that makes your face hurt in just seconds – and sparkling blue eyes make you feel at ease. After a few moments of discussion, her communicative drive […]
It’s a perfect day for kayaking. You paddle quietly over calm waters of the deepest blue.
