... of the little houses seemed to be frozen in time and the aroma from the gardens float on the air just like the fog. Our first stop is the Botanical Gardens on the northern edge of town. These gardens are immaculately maintained and everything was in bloom (so it seemed). On the far side of the gardens the town wall turns abruptly to the east and goes up to the escarpment overlooking the harbor. Much of the wall has remained intact but you cannot walk along the ...

Our final port of call was Visby, Sweden, on the island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea south of Stockholm. I hadn't ever heard of Visby before this cruise, but it used to be another Hanseatic trading town and has a very long history.

Back to the boat and with a plan for our walk in mind, after lunch we set off back into town. Now Visby is old, very old. It was at its most prosperous in the 200 years from 1150 onwards and it was a very important member of the Hanseatic League that dominated trade in these parts. It ...

... a sign for the school. I asked the bus driver and though she didn't speak English, I pronounced it close enough to where she understood me and pointed me in the right direction. It was surprisingly hot and humid - guess I had not expected that in Sweden! I found the school but it was locked and no one was around. I tried calling the only number I ...
