Viking Ship Museum – Roskilde

Viking Ship Museum – Roskilde

After spending a day in Copenhagen checking out the sites and visiting the Carlsberg Brewery, we jumped on a train to Roskilde to visit the Viking Ship Museum (Vikingeskibsmuseet). (Location)

In 1962, five Viking ships were uncovered in the mud at the bottom of the Roskilde Fjord near Skuldelev, Denmark.  Therefore, this year, 2012, the Viking Ship Museum is celebrating the 50th anniversary of that discovery.  Very interesting place to visit.

Trains across my Trail

I wasn’t expecting to encounter a long train in Northern Ontario but I was mistaken. We were in a bit of a hurray when the lights started flashing at the crossing.

On the Road Again

5:05 PM Arriving in Toronto. Looks pretty miserable and wet out the train window. Raining and 4 C with quite a bit of snow on the ground.
