I travel around and got many travel dreams. I take mostly landscape photographs. My favorite destination right now is Southern Europe but I travel also to other destinations. I come from Northern Europe and I speak three languages but thought to learn more. Mostly I like tropical landscapes and nature but I spend time also in cities and villages. I like also traveling by train and sometime cruise. These years I've been traveling around a lot of.
