Like Shelly so nicely said in her post here, we do only have one planet called Earth and we need to work together to keep everyone on it safe; one friend at a time. 

One friend at a time.

It was great to find on my return my good old friend Julien™on our dock, ready to join us in our next great adventure. He swam all the way from good old France through the channel with England up till our little Studio™ here in the Stockholm Archipelago.

More friends from all around the globe are on their way for our next adventure.

An Adventure travelling to one of the edges of this beautiful blue planet called Earth.
