TODAY I LIKE ··· THE ISLAND OF GOTLAND IN SWEDEN

Have you ever heard about Gotland? Located about 90km east of the Swedish mainland and only a 35 minute flight from Stockholm, it's a small island (population of 57.000) with a medieval town called Visby that is arguably the best-preserved medieval city in Scandinavia and has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Gotland is one of the most desired summer destinations for the Swedes for its long, sandy beaches and beautiful landscape. Swedish filmmaker Ingmar Bergman lived and died on the small island of Farö and several of his films were filmed there. The series based on Pippi Longstocking books by Swedish author Astrid Lindgren was also filmed here.

I've never been to Gotland, and I must confess I didn't even know it existed… until I started reading Mari Junstedt books, which I super highly recommend…if you're into crime and suspense books of course! Her first five novels are set on the island of Gotland. I've read the latest one, The Double Silence, and I loved it so much that I just started reading Unseen, the first book of the series - it's so addictive! 

So this is why I'm telling you about Gotland today! I've always had a soft spot for Sweden (you can read here about my unforgettable trip on the Inlandsbanan train travelling the whole length of the country for 10 days) and visiting this amazing island is definitely in my "to do" list! Just take a look at the pictures below and you will understand why :)
