A Day With Vikings

Today's theme was treat yourself. Of all our stops, this was the most touristy town we came across. So of course we had to make the rounds and do our souvenir shopping. We came to port around the same time that a GIANT princess cruise ship docked as well. It was quite a site seeing the comparison to our little 98 passenger vessel next to this behemoth. The town was hustling and bustling to say the least. We walked the mall, found a cute coffee shop to relax in, and popped in and out of local boutique stores. The highlight here was the Sagastad museum, home to the largest intact viking ship found in Norway. Turns out if you were ranked highly in Viking society, upon your death, a ship was built in your honor and buried with you. Now, most ships are not to this scale, meaning the person who was laid to rest with this vessel was of extremely importance. In the gift shop we found a number of authentic furs for sale. One of which was made of caribou and so so soft. My husband is pretty convinced he has some Scandinavian ancestors, so of course when he saw this fur, we had to buy it. This was our gift to us! To be totally honest, I think this may have been the highlight of the trip for Tadd. I mean, look how happy he is all suited up for battle.

We ended our day with a reservation at the spa. Full body massages and time in the sauna was exactly what we needed after a few days of non stop action!
