The pearl

Follow us to Sweden biggest Island.
The wonderful swedish Island in the middle of the pearl in the baltic sea.
Welcome to Gotland!

Our first stop is in the Slite camping closed to the harbour of Visby.

The sunset from the camping.
Lovely right!

The City wall of Visby is a medieval defensive wall
Surrounding the old Swedish town Visby, on Gotland.
The ringwall was likely begun in the 13th century.
Around 1280 it was rebuilt to reach its current height,
and getting the characteristic towers,
although some towers were not constructed until the 15th century.
The wall is 11 meters high and 3.5 kilometers long
and it is still largely intact. It is part of the  World Heritage 731 
in Visby.

A closer shot in the wall with my boy.
He was 6 yrs old that time when we where at Gotland.

Telling you how we travel every summer.

Hello! still with me? now were looking att the famous rauka.
Rauka is a sandreef limestones and created by natural erosion
  You can find it in Gotland and Öland.

Hoburg old man is a known rauk on the southern island of Gotland.  
 Hoburg old man is on Hoburgen, as far south as you can get on Gotland. 
 The very 'old man' is made up of rauk belonging Sundre formation.  
Sundre Formation deposited during late upper Silurian
and belongs to the youngest bedrock on Gotland.
 Gotland is made up of a sequence of sedimentary rocks of a Silurian age,
dipping to the south-east.

On the top of Hoburg old man
I´m really scared but my kids wanted to go up and look at the top.
Just try to pleased them. sooo windy and cold even if it´s summer.

A viking boat grave it´s a tourist atrraction well my kids injoy it.
Looking at stones names and 
well it´s located in the chary middle outback of Gotland.

Well you dont go to Gotland without visiting the famous 
Visby street in the central of Gotland.
It´s a must for a swedish traveller.
When your in Sweden please visit Gotland.
 I´ll assure you wont regret it´s a lovely tropical island in Sweden.

Just helping you to plan your summer vacation.
We hope you injoy the trip.
