Monument on a cliff of Palma de Mallorca

A small, town hugged the shoreline and the smell and fragrances of bougainvillea and pine trees filled my nostrils.

Exploring the Nature of Estonia

Kihnu

The majority of Estonians do not actively engage in pagan worship, but the connection to nature is strong.
