Always wanted to orienteer on Gotland (and visit). Maybe in 2018 when O-Ringen is up near our old stomping grounds!

I'll try to at least get into top 50 among H40... ;)

We love Gotland with the kids. The medieval town of Visby is so cool, there are big beaches everywhere and amazing rock pillar formations along the water. But the orienteering is like nothing else. From the maps it looks so easy, but in reality it's so flat it's bizarre. You see a contour on the map, but you have to use a lot of imagination to see a rise in the land. Then the boulders are knee high among junipers.
