    le travers le karst

    Hi, I was going to order a couple of books from Expe but the postage is 17 euros so makes it a tad expensive.

    Hi, I have been reading up on Slovenia recently as we are going caving there in October and it recommends being vaccinated against Tick borne encephalitis.
