IRONFEST...WILD WEST 2018

May 3rd 2018
IRONFEST...WILD WEST 2018. I used to use a line in bars of "Excuse me is anyone sitting here? I need to get the weight off my feet." Smile of a pretty girl relieved I had not used a sleasy line..."Be my guest."...knowing I was in. I met my wife Denise with sign language inviting her to dance...did it twice before I was in. Years pass and I'm at my second Ironfest at Lithgow in April 2018. Den ... read more

Burning Man Festival
Should I pick the Terminator or a Viking as the pic comment? Well, the Viking is closer to home so it makes more sense I guess. When I see your pictures I come to think of Burning Man Festival in Nevada. I've never been there but I have a friend who has and I have seen photos from there. Have you been there? Do you know of it? I am sure that I would love to walk around there and take photos of people, their costumes and their vehicles, tents and everything else. My guess is that so would you. /Ake

Burning Man Festival
Love the pic you have chosen Ake. The suggestion of his wife's head coming out of his chest as he was smiling for me was irresistible. Burning Man Festival I've heard of but never been. Any place where there are multitudes of people dressed to the nines anxious for their photos to be taken is my kinda place. I have one overseas option in mind that a number of the folks at Ironfest are keen to attend. Do you have any Viking Festivals in Sweden that might tempt a visit?

Middle ages themes festivals
Most historically themed festivals in Sweden are mostly geared towards the Middle ages rather than the Viking Age. It's a bit strange now that I think of it, but that's the way it is. If I would visit one of those festivals I would pick Middle Age Week in Visby (http://www.medeltidsveckan.se/en/). It is a large festival and it is held mainly in the Hanseatic City Visby, which has a very well preserved historical city centre from the Middle Ages. /Ake

Middle ages themes festivals in Gotland
Thanks Ake. I've checked the website and notwithstanding I do not understand Swedish there was enough there to excite this middle ager. Can Emma and you attend the next one to check it out and report back? Looks like photo ops a plenty.
