The Trail: be aware of the Dog Badger

I was soon joined by a Jay (a very pretty bird) flitting just ahead of me, each time I came abreast he would fly a further hundred meters or so. 323 more words

That was some initiation after two weeks of 24 degrees, swimming in the sea, fishing and biking up the side of mountains (in the Canaries sun seeking ). 262 more words
