  2. Hallo Nicole, wunderschön …das erste Foto! Du hast auf Bali gelebt? das klingt toll! Seitdem ich die Karen Kingston Bücher gelesen habe, möchte ich nach Bali. Meine Kinder sind zu jung 🙂 Aber nächstes Jahr 🙂 danke für deinen Kommentar. ..Ach, auf fuerteventura bist du aufgewachsen. Ich liebe den Wind dort – super zum Windsurfen. Ich freue mich, dass ich deinen Blog gefunden habe…toller Name…liebe Grüße
