Day 9: On the sea
Wednesday, 30 August 2017
It was going to be a significant day, as we had a twelve hours sea-journey in front of us. By the time the day was to be over, we were to be voyaging from Stockholm to Åland Islands - a remote land on the margins of the world’s consciousness.
Day 8: From Gotland to Norrköping
Tuesday, 29 August 2017
Thirty minutes after seven in the morning, we were leaving Gotland. The last look at Visby from the departing ferry, and the picturesque patchwork of red roofs sunk behind the horizon. After three hours on the water the engine beat slowed, and the boat found its way to the harbour in Oskarshamn. We pulled out onto a busy road and a few moments later found ourselves in a little village of Stensjö.
Day 7: Gotland
Monday, 28 August 2017
Just off north of Gotland lies a little island of Fårö famous from its limestone sea-stacks. So, once again, with sunshine and clear sky, we decided to move on early in the morning to discover those vertical rock formations that eroded into wonderful sculptural shapes.
Day 6: Gotland
Sunday, 27 August 2017
We woke up to a damp morning with light rain and moderate temperature. But, despite low dark clouds looming over the island, we made our way on a slow loop round its central and southern part.
