Day 1. 18/07
Körsbärsgården - Öja (25.1 km)

The pilgrimage has started for a nice breakfast made by Marita Jonsson at Körsbärsgården. a pleasant Art Space. Marita and Jon Jonsson, owners of the place, are working for promoting young artists and generate a cultural environment in Gotland. Anton Kalm from Sverige Radio interviewed us on live. After that, we took our pilgrims sticks and walked towards Sundre, the first church on Apostlahästar på Gotland. Going North, we bought lamm at a farm.

Reached Vamlingbo, we were impressed for the acoustic of the church. Lunch and siesta on the garden. For avoiding the road, crowded by car traffic, we got lost for a while. Back to the road, a friend of Laila Ljunggren, saw us and stopped the car for greeting us. She listened about us on radio! At that moment, Eva Sjöstrand stopped the car which we was driving in. She also wanted to greet us. For few seconds we collapsed the road.

Very glad we continued our pilgrimage. We reached Burgsvik around 19. After Fika at Fiket, we arrived to the place where we will sleep, Öja Församlingshem. There Benjamin Ulbricht, priest of the parish. We joined his discussion book about a St. Johan's text.

Good dinner and relax. Tomorrow will be another pilgrim day.
