3. State 7 things about yourself

4. Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award and link to them.

Seven things about me:

1. Very recently, I went to Svalbard in the Arctic.

2. Soon, I will publish blog posts about Svalbard and its wildlife. I can’t publish them all today yet, as many photos still need to be sorted out; I still have to do some research on some subjects, etc. However, do expect at least something today already!
