was initially made because I wanted to share my photos from
Gotland with those who might have an interest in them.
Every person becomes what he or she is by numerous factors.
The things that has led me to make this site are my second visite

This years festival
was a fantastic experience from start to finish! I travelled
with my family but also brought an archery mate with me and
we had so much fun I was soaring the whole time! I was given
all the time I wanted to explore all its facets, and we also
spent some hours at the local archery range. Gutars Bågskytte
who owns the range was kind enough to let us shoot as much
as we wanted for a very modest price. We found everything
we lacked for our costumes at the fair, which was abundant
with all sorts of stuff medieval and viking!
Only bummer was that I managed to forget the cable to my
digital camera at home. So I had to take all my piccies at
the lowest possible solution and I had to choose the medieval
stuff over family piccies in order to make the folks who couldn't
come with us this year happy.
New piccies from the festival here!
