Miss Honey Tongue

Miss Honey Tongue

Viking Fighting

The shy Vikingess

This is Lotta Honey Tongue and her friend Ragnar. They were at the Viking market in Handen selling their Viking handicraft. Ragnar was more the creative type he said, making some decorative fasteners for clothing. Lotta is a natural born sales person, so they should work well together. In the future Lotta is hoping to design some bags to sell at the different markets, including the Medieval Week in Visby. As you all know a true Viking will enjoy the occasional fight to the death. Followed by some serious eating ( and even drinking), and that's what you can see on the second and third photo. The somewhat heavyset Viking wannabe in blue gave the helmet protected Viking warrior a real fight. And if one of them managed to survive, I'm sure he limped over to the food stall which was operated by the shy Vikingess and her friend.They served two dishes, Meat on a stick and something called Bone of Bird.

Bjorn, Astrid, Svante, and their friends all seems to be having a good time! No pizza?

Fascinating series...none of them look too fearsome, though.

Steffe what a great job. Beautiful images and wonderful stories. I just love learning trough the images. Thanks.

The 'heavyset' viking would have been interesting on a raid to distant foreign shores!

Great story and images, as usual.

I've never visited that Medieval Week, it's supposed to be quite something. Have you?

It's fun to be a Viking, no much variety of food though...
I like this series!

Steffe said...

No pizza.

They can look fearsome if they have to...

I have not Per, but it sounds like a fun week. And it's just a short ferry ride away so maybe next summer!

I have yet to see any blond women at this festival, Steffe. You must have been in withdrawal?

Love to partake in the eating and drinking. I'll skip the part about fighting to death.

I do have a thing for redheads so after meeting the lovely Helena I was fine!

B Squared, that sounds about right. Skål.
