I now have two new travel companions: From now on, these two little Vikings will accompany me on my travels to Norway. I gave them the names of famous Vikings:
The boy is called Ragnar,
after the warrior Ragnarr Loðbrók from the Icelandic “Ragnars saga lodbrokar”.
I gave the girl the name Freydís.
Freydís Eiríksdóttir was the daughter of Erik the Red and half-sister of Leif Eriksson, the discoverer of America.
The two have their own Facebook page
and a Twitter profile
There they will report about our experiences in the country of their ancestors and are happy about many followers …
