#2428 – Hello November

ENGLISH So it’s only two months left before the end of 2020! But at this point it seems that these are going to be two tough months here in Europe. It is apparent that the COVID-19 second wave has hit pretty much all of Europe. The Netherlands has been in partial lockdown since mid-October, a…

#2339 – A Solo Weekend Trip to Oslo, Part II
