Kiedy Paryż, Rzym, Barcelona czy Londyn są już wykreślone z listy must-see,  patrząc na mapę Europy zdajesz sobie sprawę, że to tylko kropla w morzu.

Animal Planet has ended the 15-year run of Tanked, but claims the ending came naturally and is not related to a recent domestic disturbance involving a host. “After 15 fantastic seasons, the series came to a natural end late last year,” confirmed Paul Schur, the VP communications/media relations at Animal Planet.

There are different kinds and degrees of hope. There is the hope that tomorrow will be a bright and sunny day, given that the weatherman says there’s only a 5% chance of rain.
