Home again after a week well spent in Visby Medieval Week

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity... it was Visby Medieval Week 2011, and it was glorious! 

A week ago we returned home after a lovely stay in the Middle Ages. Visby was beautiful, as always. The crowds were unfortunately mainly modern, yet the general mood was good and the quality of the arrangements slightly better than last time I was there!

There is just too much to say about the whole thing yet I am way too tired for lengthy writing, so for now you'll have to settle for some pictures. 

Here we are, waiting for dinner...

Food gone!
Taking a stroll.
I love this headdress! 

Warriors assembling for the Battle of Wisby 1361.

Riders attacking!

Preparing for battle.


Friends of ours in downtown Visby, showing off their amazing outfits.


Ehm... huh?
