Borre Viking Market “2016” (part two)

borre20This place – “Borrehaugene” or “Borre National Park” is peaceful and beautiful, and the meadowsweet is surrounding the viking burial mounds. If I were to describe what a Viking marked is like it would be something like this: A time travel full of vibrating energies, with the smell of bonfire smoke and the taste of salty meat. borre23I need to build myself a throne and I felt very inspired when I saw this one. (Will obviously not copy it – who the f* does stuff like that anyways?) borre21borre16borre8borre22borre17borre19Laura Šmideberga is such a sweet, talented lady. She is glowing and her beads are so pretty. borre26These beads are handmade by her. Love them all- especially the gold beads in the middleborre1borre24Casually chilling in front of a tent. Beholding Viking Bling blinds me and I need to sit down to collect myself whilst shopping ancient style. .

I believe that I have expressed my love for this Viking market before, but I am happy to do so again; Borre Viking Market in Horten, -Vestfold, Norway, is one of my favorite markets so far. This market is biannual, which means that the next Kaupang will be in “2018”.

  1. Funny you ask.

    The market I’m looking at going to is in Denmark, the Moesgaard Viking Moot.

    It’s supposed to be a very big deal this year as it’s the moot’s 40th anniversary. That and the museums are supposed to be really amazing.

  2. I will be going to the Midgard market this year, same place, (different organizers, I think), except it is on the other side of the compound.
    Never been to the Kaupang before, so I am looking forward to it.
    I really like your blog by the way.
    Til ars ok fridar!
