Terve! Hello! Dear friends, here I come again! It’s been awfully hot again and I’m really worried about all my friends in the wild. There are forest fires threatening both the humans’ and the animals’ homes in Sweden so I’m thinking of Wilbär, Ewa and Hope in Orsa.

Unbelievable but true! Today Knutitours celebrates it’s 10th anniversary! When I started this tour I never thought I would be writing this. I never believed Knutitours would still be going strong after all these years.
