The festival was really well put together, and apparently smaller then previous years - good thing for me that this was my first time going, so I was more then happy with the size and result this year.
A huge bonus this year on the other hand was their newly opened Viking Hall - it looked absolutely amazing. Really well done, and thankfully fairly historically accurate.

|And then there was duelling! Looked pretty good too actually - positively surprised to say the least.|
Here is one of the Instagram videos I made while I was there. Not very good quality I'm afraid, but you get the idea. Kinda fun. :)
If you want to se more pictures and videos by the way, you can check out my Instagram account over in the right field on the blog, or go directly //HERE.
When the epic battle was over, we decided to head homewards, but before we reached our car, we stumbled across the National Park in Borre.
Such a beautiful park, filled with large oak trees - one of the most beautiful things I know - old, large trees.

|The largest oak was far away on a field outside the park - so beautiful ♥|
When we came home I was basically jumped by a slightly offended Tifa, that decided that from there on out, I had no business going anywhere, thank you very much! She basically sat on me for the rest of the day ♥
