South Greenland turned out to be so different from the northwest - no snow, but green meadows! So entering the Eiriksfjord we all could realize why Erik the Red called his new land for Greenland. We visited his old farmplace Brattahlid where we enjoyed a lively performance about his adventures and familyproblems from one of his concubines - fallen out of time.

Others went on a small boatcruise to a nearby glacier where they could enjoy a lot of icebergs - amongst them one of the astonishing blueest icebergs ever to bee seen!

Than we turned our ship to follow from this historical place in the steps of Leif Erikson - the first one who ever crossed the nordic ocean and found Vinland or nowadays America.
