Funny, having a drink in the back of the ship this afternoon looking out over Olden and the mountains through the back windows … Somehow, it just didn’t seem real. Like a postcard projected onto a green screen … okay, a very grubby green screen.
With shows like Vikings, the interest in Vikings and that time period has really taken off recently. I’m fairly ignorant about the subject, and the only exposure I’ve had is from television showing them as ruthless sea-going warriors rading and pillaging other villages and countries for their own gain. So this trip to Norway 🇳🇴 is a great opportunity to gain some insight into not only Norway but also of Viking culture.
