Wow, time sure runs fast during summer. Now it is only 2,5 weeks before the medieval week in Visby, on the island Gotland here in Sweden and I have lots of work to do before we travel there. Me and love will be traveling with our friend L, and as usual, I will be at Kapitelhusgården holding workshops during the week. If you want to attend one of them you can prebook here.
There will also be a Secret Shop opening on a Secret Location in the market place during the week. If you know what I’m talking about- watch out for the sign!
Anyway, I haven’t had the time to write new posts for you, even if I have heaps of good photos and adventures to tell you about. They will have to wait until autumn, and instead I wanted to give you some reading tips (in Swedish and English) if you are preparing for Visby (or any other medieval/viking event) and want some inspiration.
Some photos from last week 2017
…and more photos from the year before
The list I wrote some years ago for packing for a medieval tent event
My guide (in English) to the Medieval week and in Swedish
Hope you will enjoy these links, and if you are going to visit Visby- I would be so happy if you came by and said hi to me =) Some of my most dear memories includes meeting readers and making new friends during the medieval week!

Pitty I’m far away from Sweden, otherwise I would go to all these places for sure. Are you travelling by any chance to the viking event that will be held in August in Wolin (Poland)? I will be there with my viking reenactment group.

Oh, I have wanted to go a long time! =) Visby is the week after Wolin, and starts the same weekend. But someday I think I would like to plan Wolin before Visby =)

Hej! Vad är det för brosch du har på turbanen? Är på jakt efter något liknande till en kommande finstass a la sent 1400 🙂

Det är en liten ananasbrosch som är en kopia av en målning från mitten på 1400 ca =) Jag kommer inte ihåg var i från jag beställde den men har också letat mer bra 1400talssmycken. Om du hör med Johanna Lawrence (EvaJohanna arts & crafts) kanske hon är sugen på att bygga något liknande? =)
