Visby, our second UNESCO World Heritage site in as many days. Visby is another walled medieval city, also a Hansa city, on the the Island of Gotland. It was beautiful and Andrea wants to live there. It had many ruined churches, a result of getting too powerful in the Hanseatic league and getting razed by Lubeck. Who knew this trading organization had a military (Well, maybe some of you did who are smarter than we are). There were also beautiful roses and concrete sheep.

We were only on Visby a few hours as the ship sailed early. We relaxed, played trivia at tea time and lost :-(. As we did every day we then had the butler deliver crab claws, shrimp and champagne to our suites before dinner. Life is hard.

Visby is beautiful. I can see why Lubeck wanted to crush them. Lubeck is pretty cool, but it isn't on your trip, eh? Betsy and I went there last year.

Looks like you are all relaxed and having a wonderful time. Could you bring me one of those sheep?
