Launching The Sea Stallion from Glendalough 2017

I will never grow tired of the elegant lines, the beautiful colours, and the history behind Skuldelev 2 and The Sea Stallion from Glendalough.
This day was a bitterly cold day; April 8th 2017 when the crew launched the ship in Roskilde once again.
Spring has arrived despite the cold weather.

Elsinore and Kronborg Castle

The old town of Elsinore is like stepping into a fairy tale. One sunny day we went for a stroll from the harbour to Kronborg Castle. Old medieval buildings lure with history, interesting facts and legends. Elsinore and Kronborg Castle always entice with a tale.

Mural, Hamlet
To be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;
No more; and, by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to, ’tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d. To die, to sleep;
To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there’s the rub.

William Shakespeare, Hamlet
