    Hjemkomst – Across the Seas

    I’m ending 2016 with my last post of my trip to the US from back in February this year. Ottie and his mum brought me to the Hjemkomst Center to check out this really cool handmade Viking ship replica that a crazy guy built back in the late 70’s to early 80’s, in an attempt to replicate the entire process the Vikings underwent for their journey across the sea to land on US soil; only this time he would be heading in the opposite direction, back to Norway.

And while the plush smoke was quick to dissipate in the wintry breeze, I suppose that it would work well the next time I find the opportunity to play with…
