All at Sea

4th August 2014

We bimbled around Oslo today and headed to the outskirts to do the maritime side of Norway.

We started at the Thor Heyerdahl museum and saw his rafts; the RA II and the Kon-Tiki.

He must have been raving to try and cross oceans in them!

We then went next door to see the Fram; the strongest wooden hulled ship made and was designed to be frozen into pack-ice.   It seems to have fared well after its visit to the Antarctic.
