Meet the Dragon Tamers

This summer I spent several weeks as a crew member onboard Draken Harald Hårfagre, a Viking longship, that is  the largest ever built in modern times.  You can read more about my adventures starting here, but now meet the crew that were the dragon tamers.

The crew members were a diverse group of people, from professional sailors who’d spent a lifetime at sea to others that had only been on one sailing holiday before, from some of the most experienced Viking ship crew to dingy sailors, rowers and kayakers.  We came from all corners of the world, Scandianavia and Scotland, Estonia and England, New Zealand and the USA, France and Canada, Malta and Spain (and I’ve probably missed someone out… sorry!), speaking several languages between us (and only a few able to say døde røde rådne røgede ørreder).

The theme of the weekly photo challenge is community.

      Thanks. It was an amazing experience, and part of that was down to all the people taking part in the expeditions.
