The four of us: Felix, Peter, myself and Elsa.
Well, I arrived in Sweden in the morning after a transfer in Amsterdam. Didn't talk to a single security officer, no customs officers and no baggae check, just grabbed my bag and walked out of the airport. I grabbed a train to Stockholm, hopped on a bus to the ferries, then floated my way to Gotland Island. Peter, my buddy I met in Perth Australia, had arranged everything I needed to do which made it very easy to find my way here. Upon arrival in Visby, Peter picked me up and we jumped in a limo back to his place.
Gotland is awesome! Visby, the city on Gotland, is very medieval and is surrounded by a massive stone wall built hundreds of years ago. The shops and houses are all built to keep the medieval look, and it just so happened that it was also medieval week when I arrived.
My trip here was not so much for sight seeing and backpacking, but for meeting up with my friends I met in Perth, Australia who all live here, Peter, Felix and Elsa. We basically just got pissed every night and then walked around town during the day. Played some
Felix's Blue Steel (from the movie Zoolander).
volleyball and checked out the hand made medieval helmets, shields, swords and armour at the medieval week's market.
