that time I accidentally planned my vacation along the northern Viking migration route


Last night I watched the PBS documentary, Wild Nature of the Vikings. A colleague from Finland sent it to me. I realized while watching it that my Scandinavian summer more or less follows the migration of the Vikings, skipping Faroe and Shetland Islands and also Vinland/Newfoundland.
