Almost a thousand years ago, Norse adventurer Thorfinn Karlsefni left Greenland heading west. He established a settlement in Newfoundland and explored as far south as New England. That was the first Viking invasion of America.
Last summer, Vikings invaded again. This time they came from New Zealand. Instead of a horde of giant, blond warriors wearing horned helmets, this invasion brought a sleek, light, spunky kayak that the sea-faring natives welcomed.
