Where did we go? Did we vanish from the surface of earth? *giggles*
No, we did go to our summer paradise island Fårö, in the north tip of the island Gotland outside Swedens east coast. We use to be here at least 4 weeks and so even this time. The whole July month we’ll be enjoying this fantastic island.
We claim it to be Swedens most beautiful place. It definitely has Sweden best beaches. The sand quality is outstanding, very hard to beat. We have not found this kind of fine sand even abroad in warmer countries. Yes, you’re gonna here me nag about this for many years ahead! *giggles*
Strange enough, on the ferry from Nynäshamn to Visby, the main city at the island Gotland, there were unusual few passaengers, only 540. None of us has expereinced that before and Mr Lifecruiser has gone here about the same date every summer for 30 years!
Have the tourists deserted Gotland – or are they coming over here later on? The weather has been bad in the whole Sweden for the last years, maybe Swedes choose a more certain sun destination somewhere else this year, where the climate is better? We’ll see later on.
The night before our departure, we only had about 3-3,5 hours of sleep. Why? Because we always start packing too late. We’re totally hopeless…
That’s why I haven’t written anything yet. We got here early Thursday and started cleaning the place up and when we were ready with that we kind’a crashed. We slept for 12 hours.
Friday we went shopping for some necessitys and just had a relaxed evening at home. We did drive around a bit to see if everything were the same – and almost. Some minor changes around the island, but not much. Some of our places for evening pleasures has closed though.
Today we’ve just been out in the sun relaxing, enjoying the sun even though it has been very windy. The summer warmth will come though.
Now, we’re at the Strandskogens café, our favorite. We were very pleased to meet our friends, Selene and Paco who runs this café – and to eat Selenes excellent dishes again! We had here home made potatoes and onion soup with truffle oil with homebaked bread. YUMMY x millions!
No photos yet, we’re in a hurry since they’re closing the café now, where we have wireless connection for free.
We had very thrilling news before leaving home – Claudie invited us to France next summer in August and we accepted with big pleasure!
That will be next years highest enjoyment for sure. We’ll meet up with some of the other cruisers, Tor and Anna plus and Renny and Diane.
Have fun in you summer paradise, where ever you are
