It came from an Australian traveler, shuttled by a small life boat from a cruise ship onto the unsuspecting shores of Visby. I am the plague. Such is how I've felt lately. Ever since Copenhagen, Ive had a horror flu like infection. A blocked, then runny nose, coughing up horrible rainbows of gunk, spontaneous vomiting, clouded thoughts ...
... in weeks) every year in a town called Visby, on an island named Gotland, surrounded by a sea titled The Baltic. Visby is a UNESCO World Heritage Site because it is so freaking cool. The old city is surrounded by the Ringmuren or Ring Wall built around 700 years ago, it is lined with towers and gates. As well as this there are many old church ruins scattered throughout the city, so what a perfect place for thousands of dungeons and dragons nerds ...
