Driving South, through the mountains of Northern Iraq.
Our first AA, near Irbil.
like with my own web address and everything.. I don't really know how I feel about it. I'm certainly by no means a writer, or even really all that creative. i only have two people that read it, and they are two good friends of mine. I don't know if I WANT anyone else to read it. They are the only two people I have even told (except all of you now). It is something that I will some day in the future be really proud of. I just can't figure out if I want to try to spread the word on it now, or wait

We had a late start to the day I originally planned to visit Västerås. We'll do that tomorrow. Today we spent the afternoon in Gamla Stan. It's really neat there, a lot of tourists though. I visited Handfaste, a Viking shop. Bought a blowhorn, horn-mug, a Futhark ring, two leather armbands, and a miniature Anundshög runestone. Inside though I saw a couple drinking horns that put mine to shame, they are so large. Imagine the drunkenness...

Woke up with a stiff neck. When don't I after an awesome show? And it was raining again! So many rain storms at this festival. At least Thor is being courteous and not dumping it all while bands are playing. The stage area is all dirt, so there's mud everywhere. But no one cares, 'cause we're all here to have fun!
There aren't any bands today that I really wanna see, so I'll opt for drinking and observing mostly.
I watched Amorphis's

The campsite opened today! We did our final loads of laundry at the hostel, cleaned our room, and took a taxi to Lugnet. We got our wristbands, set up our tent, and walked around a bit.
I am so excited to be here. Surrounded by metalheads drinking and blasting music. We decided to buy some chairs, but it was too late at that point to go to a store. But we'd like to be able to socialize
Long blog post since I didn't log very much content for a lot of days. I'm at the festival now, so my next blog here will be post-festival.

We woke up, tidied our hostel room and checked out. The receptionist called us a taxi to the train station since our phones still weren't really working. We got to the station and bought tickets to Örebro, where we would switch trains to go north. Once there, we got to the platform we needed to be at
