‘Gone Viking’ Follows Epic Journeys of the Misunderstood, Well, Vikings

Viking was a verb, not one that described violence or strength, but simply going on a voyage to unknown places. To “go viking” then is to strike out on a kind of epic adventure, unsure of what you’ll find. In this case, it’s the root of Gone Viking a fun travel saga by Bill Arnott, who does, indeed trace the footsteps and the boat wakes of the legendary travelers we now call vikings. That night aboard the cutter our weather, according to the poem, was the type to keep Vikings away. In the black of night we watched phytoplankton – dinner for the sharks – twinkling like waterborne stars mirroring night sky.
