Thursday evening a whole gang of us from the farm went to Lauters, one of the cool places to hang out on Fårö.

They arranged a Jamaica evening we thought sounded like a lot of fun. Last Thursday we missed the French evening. They have BBQ evenings every Thursday, Friday and Saturday.


When we arrived there Sven, one of the owners said: “so you have come to start the dancing…” I wonder what we’re known of? *giggles*


The DJ, who is located above the bar at the barn loft, were playing a lot of Jamaica related music, but also a lot of other cool music. As always at Lauters there is a lot of dancing at the crowded Barn floor.


Here is Kari, our Norwegian friend, and two of the other girls staying at the farm this summer. Kari actually met two Norwegian guys this evening, who never had been here before. I imagine it was quite an experience for them, since everything is so very special here at Fårö.

The ones not dancing, can always sit in the part where they call “under bar himmel” (under bare sky), because it’s a part of the old barn where there is no roof, very cool actually.


Lauters limestone barn is from the 18th century and in my eyes a real beauty, so much history in this building. It has it’s own character for sure.


In daytime they have a very nice café here serving a Gotlandic speciality: saffranspannkaka (saffron pancakes), where you can sit and just enjoy it by the waterside.

As the matter of a fact, we took TorAa and Anna to the café last summer when they were here, in the pouring rain… Remember? Quite a memorable visit that too!

    Now you are talking: Jamaica Rum and music and even dancing! You know I love Reggie (Bob Marley is my fave you know!) and I would have loved to dance with you in those romantic surroundings.

    Tor and Anna are always talking so nicely about their stay and one day… well at least we meet in September ;-)
