While you are enjoying the festive holidays why not enjoy some summer views in Sacha’s vlog. ↓🇫🇮🇸🇪🇦🇽↓“My pilgrimage showed me how many strong women there are out there. It taught me how to be in the present and it gave me room to breathe, all essential things to me which I marked by taking pictures and notes. I am now part of an historical trail where thousands of medieval pilgrims have walked and sailed long before me.”⛵👣Read more on Sacha’s trip www.nordicpilgrim.com/pilgrim-stories-waterway/ 🇫🇮 Video automaattisella suomenkielisellä tekstityksellä löytyy YouTube-kanavallamme🇸🇪🇦🇽 Videon med automatiska textning på svenska finns på vår YouTube kanal. ...
