Gotland

Hello again!

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 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 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?”

Word.

Gotland was the best! I hope we get to go back some time!

  1. Oh wow, it looks stunning ! I really can’t see why it wouldn’t be popular in autumn…
    But all the better for you, while having the place to yourselves now 🙂

    1. It was! And me neither… But I think all places look their best in autumn. I love that season. So for me it was perfect! It was awesome to have the place to ourselves!

    1. The sunset was one of the most stunning views! And we all know that RL looks way better than the photo. And the photo turned out great, so you could just imagine how incredible it was! I´m still inn awe.
