Ragnhildsholmen Medieval Fort Ruin

Went out to find good spots for photo sessions, and this medieval fort ruin, called Ragnhildsholmen, was great.     https://youtu.be/1syfMvqEklo   Ragnhildsholmen belong to Norway around 1250's when it was built. Sweden won over the whole region in 1658 in The Roskilde Peace Treaty negotiations. This fort however, was only in use for about hundred years as its significance ...

Stećci (Medieval Megalithic Tombstones) in Radimlja, Bosnia & Herzegovina

There are almost 60 000 tombstones (monoliths) like these in Bosnia & Herzegovina, called stećci. These ones in Radimlja are easy to visit, being just 3 km near Stolac. Otherwise many of them are located on high altitudes and in forests. Less than 10% actually have any inscriptions or reliefs at all and in Bosnia ...

Ancient Megalithic Site of Daorson in Bosnia & Herzegovina

A good time to visit the site of Daorson is in the spring and autumn, because the heat and the vegetation can limit your movement and put you at risk for snakes. The ancient megalithic ruins are located on top of the high hill in Ošanić where it is believed that settlements have existed ever since ...

There are several objects like these in Bosnia, abandoned and remnants of the former Yugoslavian army. Enormously expensive as they were, all are abandoned - like the biggest one called Željava ...

Road Trip in Norway With Our Baby

At last we went on that road trip up to Norway and the landscapes of fjords, rivers, waterfalls, mountains - like something out of a Lord of the Rings milieu. This time, we had our baby girl with us. She's almost one year now but has been with us in Southern Europe and now to Northern ...

Ancient Norse Megaliths in Sweden

There are more megalithic sites in Europe than people are aware of, beside some of the famous ones like Stonehenge and Carnac, from Turkey's Göbekli Tepe (okey, technically it's in Asia, but some of the first European settlements were there in ancient times) and all the way from Bosnian megaliths up to the Swedish sites ...

My love and the colors around us

This autumn has been full of experience for the three of us, all autumn magic, from sunny days, to lightning & thunder and all that eventually passed to the fading autumn colors and the end of our traveling for now.   This was the perfect rainbow that appeared for about 10 minutes. I've never seen a better ...

Our stay in Dubrovnik

November began in Dubrovnik for us, where we rented a small apartment in the old town, the heart of Dubrovnik. We really enjoyed it and the weather was perfect, like a Swedish summer. I love medieval architecture and Dubrovnik is just that, but with all aspects of modern life. So we walked a lot and ...
