The Viking Museum - A must see…..as Scott says “It was Cool!”. Three actual Viking ships built in the 800’s were discovered in burial mounds in the Oslo area. The Oseberg and the Gokstad ships were almost fully preserved, while the Tune ship was badly deteriorated. The jewels and other valuables had been robbed centuries ago. All three ships were actually used but when prominent people died during that era, they were buried with a real ship and all the necessities to take them to the afterlife. The necessities consisted of everything they would have needed during a lifetime voyages such as food, clothing, horses, dogs, slaves, pots, camping gear, etc. There were sleds and a wagon on display that had very ornate carvings. The only surviving chair and full saddle from the Viking era were found in the Oseberg burial mounds.
Dream trip of traveling around the world. We have a general idea of where we are headed but only time will tell where the journey takes us.
Follow along with us on our trip around the world. Many have dreamed of doing it but we have decided to throw caution to the wind and make it a reality. We hope to travel for around 9 months.
