Viking sites and museums in Norway

The Vikings were warriors, raiders, and explorers, and thanks to advanced sailing and navigational skills, they succeeded in becoming the first Europeans to set foot on mainland North America — perhaps even 500 years before Christopher Columbus landed in the Caribbean in 1492. Originating in present-day Scandinavian countries, the Vikings explored and often settled westward to Iceland, Greenland, and North America while spreading eastward to Central Asia, the Mediterranean, and North Africa. ...

SUPing around Sicily narrative

Mentions of the Mediterranean Sea may bring to mind images of sunshine and calm waters, but in October 2018, when I was attempting to become the first person to circumnavigate Sicily by stand-up paddleboard, solo and unsupported, I had to battle through thunder and wind storms about twice a week.
