When taking the ferry over to Fårösund one day, we saw a beautiful wooden ship anchored at the harbor there.

    Norway has a high mast sailing ship similar to this with the same purpose, Christian Radich. Valborg is a real beauty. I love these old ships, they don’t make them with that craftmanship anymore. We were lucky enough to sail on Christain Radich on Oslo fjord two times. It was a wonderful experience. Hope you are enjoying your summer my friend!! We think a lot of you when romping around Sweden you know!
