It’s been a while ..

Soo, we’ve finished our RTW a while ago (can’t believe it’s been over a year) but this site hasn’t been updated since December 2009. Well, it’s time to change this situation and post some additional photos from the RTW trip along with new photos taken during recent adventures. After all – life is an adventure…
