By the walls surrounding the medieval town of Tallinn in Estonia in June this year.  The medieval town of Tallinn in Estonia is  an UNESCO World Heritage Site – . We went around on the medieval streets on Toompea and looked at the old buildings.

On the road to Viskafors

IMG_0241

The railroad broke down and I had to travel with the replacement bus instead which took forever. Here the bus is nearing Viskafors station to pick up more passengers on the road between Borås and Varberg. I arrived in Varberg just as the train I had planned to take pulled out from the station. Anyhow I got a good picture from the bus as is seen above. The picture is taken in August 2015.


Venetian Carousel at Malmöfestivalen

DSC_8860

This picture is taken on the opening day of Malmöfestivalen August 10th 2018, the annual party in Malmö, that started in 1985. Passing by Gustav Adolfs Torg I saw that they had put up the venetian carousel again. They usually have it out at the Christmas Market.

I hope you enjoy the picture with the little girl climbing onto the carousel with the horses.

To see other pictures of a venetian carousel in the beginning of the 21st century look here and for another picture of a venetian carousel on Gustav Adolfs torg look here.
