France is the most visited country in the world - a mnie tam jeszcze nie było! Z całą pewnością trzeba to będzie kiedyś nadrobić. ;)
Świetna sprawa zbierać breloczki z całego świata! Swoją drogą, gdzie Ty je wszystkie trzymasz? :D

Ja też byłam tam tylko przejazdem, więc również muszę się kiedyś wybrać! Zwłaszcza do Saint-Tropez! ;)

A breloki trzymam w takowej gablocie (zdj) ;) + część, która miała za ładne opakowania żeby je rozrywać dalej leży w wielkim pudle :D
