Gotland Fårö Sweden

wagtailgirls_annakern_gotland_faro2A few days on the Swedish island in the Baltic Sea, Gotland, and the small island just next to Gotland, Fårö. Love the calm feeling in the harsh and beautiful landscape especially when visiting the islands off season. We were here in the beginning of June. Fårö translates to “the Sheep island”. wagtailgirls_annakern_gotland_51A2699wagtailgirls_annakern_gotland_51A2979wagtailgirls_annakern_gotland_faro4wagtailgirls_annakern_gotland_51A3021Helgumannen.

When Matt, my love and the girls father, turned 30 years old we rented an old mill on this farm for a quiet weekend. Unfortunately he never made it to his 40th birthday. The cancer was too agressiv. We miss you so. wagtailgirls_annakern_gotland_51A3469wagtailgirls_annakern_gotland_51A3613wagtailgirls_annakern_gotland_51A3591wagtailgirls_annakern_gotland_faro6wagtailgirls_annakern_gotland_51A3654Visby.
