The scenery was so divine that even our gods would behold it in silence.
This guy was so friendly. We ened up chatting for quite some time. I do enjoy talking to people at markets like these. Many came up to me and I really appreciated talking to every one of you who did. My heathen heart truly beats for you guys.
I found time to breathe here.
These girls were adorable. They were playing with the ashes of a bonfire, and I told them that they were cute. They replied: "We know," and that made them even cuter in my eyes. Adorable and arrogant? I love it.
Gudvangr is beautiful and very peaceful. Believe it or not - vikings do not fight all the time. We spend a lot of time on looting bling too.
I am so weak for skulls. I wanted to grab this particular one and run away screaming with joy. But one cannot act that insane - or rude.
Mark my words, people of Midgard ...I shall have one, one way or the other.
I was waiting for mead from a friend. Sometimes, you have to get a little medicine to get through the day ;)
Behold!!! More skulls.
Where there is weapons...
...You will find me.
Next year I shall return to pillage with pride.
Gudvangr better be ready for me yet again.
I did attend Gudvangr Viking Market this summer. There are more pictures to come.

I recently visited Borrehaugene again to feel the energies and take a few pictures of the scenery. To my pleasant surprise, I found a viking longhouse (under constructuon) that is soon to be finished. During the Viking Festival at Borre (6~7th of July) they will open it for the audience to see. That's what it is all about - Bringing the ancient into modern.

Where might I meet YOU this summer?
I found that there are many viking age related items for sale at Medieval Faires.
Will you just look at this epic drinking horn.
My look, day one. I designed and made this dress many years ago.
(The two photos of me above were taken by Ida Sofie Vesterelv)
I met Erik and Johan Holst from Gycklargruppen Trix
Friends came from far and wide...;
Ida Sofie and Camilla Rose
Tathariel, my sister in spirit.
My look, day two. The dress I am wearing is modified by me. It used to look completely different.
Just chilling. I found it amusing.
Medieval Faires are great fun to attend. I met a lot of blog readers and friends.
This summer, I am going to attend many Viking Faires and Medieval Faires.
I am wondering who I might meet this time-
Whom of my readers are going to Faires in Norway this summer?
Which Faires are you going to attend?
My dearest sister in spirit Tathariel and I participated in a "viking fight" video this Autumn with some admirable warriors.
Here?s the result of the hair whipping, steel clanking, muscle flexing and muddy adventure
