    • Haha!You are right about that, Leya! Though there were skilled merchants among them too, men who gladly avoided a battle 🙂

  1. Beautiful shots Hanna. Indeed, the Vikings were some of the first explorers of this world and, we can only imagine the sights that they encountered and, the thoughts that must have gone through their minds. Those were the days when exploring was very real and, in some ways, I envy them so much. But, in our own way, we can still explore new places to us and, even though it’s not quite as dramatic as it was back then, it’s still very enjoyable and fulfilling. Who knows, maybe one day we will be reborn as Vikings ourselves. 🙂

    • Thanks a lot for your comment!! It is a fascinating thought to be reborn in the Viking Age. As you say not all things were just good but the exploring part of their live must have been very exciting and very rough at the same time 🙂

  2. Nice! Are those colours like the Vikings painted their ships? Is the mast to be erected yet? I would love to come and see the launching. It must be a wonderful sight.
