I would like to recommend you readers of HTBS to read the blog Rowing for Pleasure today as Chris P. is writing about Frans G. Bengtsson’s novel about the Viking Red Orm, The Long Ships, which I once recommended Chris to read. I was happy to read on Rowing for Pleasure that Chris enjoyed The Long Ships (he was stuck in a tent while it was pouring outside).
I am writing this in the south of Sweden. An half hour drive from where I am is the Foteviken’s Viking Museum. Unfortunately, I will not be able to take the children there on this visit (I will leave for the Henley Royal Regatta tomorrow) but next time we go to Sweden for sure we will pay the Viking village a visit.
