If you think you’ve got challenging travel plans this holiday weekend, consider this. In 2007, a crew of sailors re-enacted a Viking sailing route, from Roskilde, Denmark, to Dublin, Ireland. They sailed a replica Viking ship, The Stallion of The Sea, making a nautical journey of 1000 miles.
Though they had some modern navigational equipment, and were towed for the last third of the trip, it might make you a bit thankful to not be up against open wind and waves.
Good news, intrepid traveller: we have your back. All ten episodes of Jarnsaxa Rising are currently available FOR FREE, in easy-streaming podcast format. If you can read this, you can listen to it.
Whether you’re washing dishes, stuck in traffic, finding a corner in an airport, or trying to find something less depressing than The Eagles game, our story is here for you.
Thank you, and wherever you are, be safe.
