As I mentioned in the last post, Thomas and I went to Gotland for our autumn break. Gotland has been a dream of mine for ten years, and this summer we decided that we should go there. Autumn is not a popular time to visit Gotland, so we got great prices on hotel and got to stay at Hotel Helgeand which was a lovely place! There was almost no tourists around, so we basically had the place to ourself, just the way I like it! Gotland is Sweden’s largest island, with a lot of history, and I wasn´t disapointed. We spent a lot of time wandering around in the old town, and we also took the car to see more of the island. Stunning! We took a lot of picture, and this about sums it up:
Visby City Wall, a medieval defensive wall surrounding the town.
It was windy all the time…
How cute is this this little guy that we found in the botanical garden!
We hunted a sunset with our car…
We went to the rauk Jungfrun in Lickershamn.(Rauks are eroded limestone formations).
My camera almost ran out of battery and it was getting dark, so I didn´t get to take a picture of Jungfrun, but here is another rauk:
We met some sheep who was disappointed that we didn´t have any food.
I got to see an old windmill, live!!! Gorgeous!
Before we went to Gotland, we took a stroll in Karlstad, a city in Sweden. I had to take a picture of this beautiful quote from a Swedish children´s book by Inger Sandberg. “Daddy, whispered little Spook. Are there ghosts here? Oh sweet little Spook, said daddy. We are the ghosts. And you aren´t afraid of yourself?”
Gotland was the best! I hope we get to go back some time!
