Bestselling author Bill Arnott has done it again -- he's gone "viking"! -- voyaging around the world by foot, bus, train, boat, and a couple of questionable planes. Gone Viking II features a series of remarkable excursions occuring over a number of years -- before, during, and after the voyages recounted in Gone Viking: A Travel Saga. All of these journeys are now reflected in a changed world in which travel restrictions have become our new normal and many adventurers find themselves retracing previous trips through the pages of their personal notebooks and travel diaries. From first-hand encounters, vividly shared experience, and well-worn personal journals, readers can travel alongside this fun-loving wanderer in the footsteps of history's greatest explorers, make quirky new friends, find hidden treasures, and discover surprisingly familiar destinations from the comfort of their favourite armchair. With an inquisitive eye, poetic prose, and a comedian's take on nearly everything, Bill Arnott explores the world with insight and humour. Join this award-winning author for another travel saga, voyaging across the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Oceania by foot, bus, train, boat, and a couple of questionable planes.

Bill Arnott guides readers on an epic literary odyssey following history's most feared and misunderstood voyageurs: the Vikings! To "go Viking" is to embark on an epic journey. For more than eight years, Bill Arnott journeyed throughout the northern hemisphere, discovering sites Scandinavian explorers raided, traded, and settled - finding Viking history in a wider swath of the planet than most anthropologists and historians ever imagined.

Prepare yourself for an armchair adventure like no other! From Europe to Asia, the Mediterranean to the British Isles, through Scandinavia to Iceland, Greenland, and the New World, with further excursions around Thor Heyerdahl's Pacific, Roald Amundsen's Arctic, and Olaf Crowbone's stormy North Atlantic, Bill takes readers on a mythic personal adventure in real time - a present-day Viking quest.
