" GRANDPA, WHAT EXACTLY IS A "VIKING"? "
Growing up in Vopnafjörður, Iceland, Grandpa always said "Viking kids don't cry," One day I said "I'm not a Viking, what I have heard they were mean people!"
Grandpa looked at me and said: "Vik, in Icelandic means a bay, inlet or a fjord.
So anyone who lives by a fjord could be called Viking or Vikingur which means "One who comes from the fjords."
