    This is what makes me want to wander. The Swedish forests and beautiful meadows.

    Though we’re just back from a trip to the Arctic Circle in Northern Norway, I’m hungry for more. My arctic dreams are now a full blown arctic wanderlust, and I’m planning journeys even closer to the North Pole.
    Good luck to everyone! Fantastic photos!!
