What caused his mysterious smile? It might have been that a norse muse whispered lyrics softly to his ears, or it might have been the ecco of a tone from ancient history.. Then again, he might just have been happy and content to be;)  (Or all of the above)

Yes, she has the bronze one, and I have the silver one. We’re so much like sisters you would almost not believe it. kaupang6Details, Saga Oseberg (reconstruction of the Oseberg Ship)

I promised to deliver a blog post today, and here it is. Borre Kaupangen was aesthetically beautiful as ever, and I was in awe of all the glory to behold. This viking marked is held every two years at the site of Borrehaugene where one can see many viking graves. It is wonderful, heartwarming and relaxing to take part in this market, and I strongly recommend it. There are so many good people there to bring forth laughter and smiles. I adore you all! This year, the camp rules were a bit strict due to some unfortunate events that happened last market (I do not know the nature of these events, and it is not in my place to speculate about it). Some of my friends and I were asked to leave the festival as we were not officially registered as party participants at the gilde. We felt a bit sad about being asked to leave, but this quickly turned as many friends clearly expressed that they wanted us there. So… regardless of strict rules, we just stayed and participated in the magical ceremony of the night. Einar Selvik from Wardruna performed Helvegen. on top of one of the viking graves (video by Espen WinPics underneath)

I must say thank you to all the lovely blog readers who came up to greet me. You truly make every market very special and you are all oh so dear to me. Thank you for reading, and thank you for all the warmth and kind words you grant me.

  1. Er så glad for at vi fekk oppleve Borre Kaupangen saman 🙂 Og blotet på gravhaugen gir meg framleis frysninger når eg tenkjer på det.. så spirituelt og vakkert ❤

  2. Hi! Question about the narrow chairs in the first photo…any idea who’s booth that was or what those chairs are called? They are different than normal “viking chairs” and I want to make one! Thank you!

    • Sadly, I don’t have that information. There is just too much glory to behold to remember all the booths and artist’s names. Will make sure to notify you in case I meet him/her again! Good luck with your creations.
