A life of adventure, freedom, activity, and knowledge
Despite popular belief, the viking people were not just fearsome warriors out to murder, rape and pillage. While being one of the more prominent and successful warrior cultures we’ve seen to date, much of their success was due to the rich story-telling that fuelled their civilisations, not to mention their resourcefulness when it came to travelling, farming, building, and craftsmanship.
But this is 2021 and, outside of Zack Snyder movies at least, warrior cultures aren’t all the rage. When we travel we do so with passports and welcoming nationals, rendering the whole swords, shields, and battles to the death over land claims and religious pretext a little pointless. And illegal, obviously.
