Brexit Coin


A week ago I got a Euro coin back as change money and didn’t notice it right away, but at home I had to laugh when I realized someone attempted to stamp out the United Kingdom from the coin.

There is a lot of nature and she´s just discovering that all in her young years like … Continue reading A Photo of two Sand Lizards and further Informations
