Happy 95th Birthday, Thor Heyerdahl!

Thor Heyerdahl (October 6, 1914– April 18, 2002) was a Norwegian scientist & adventurer, perhaps most well known for his Kon-Tiki expedition, in which he sailed 4,300 miles by raft from South America to the Tuamotu Islands.

If you are ever in Norway, visit the Kon-Tiki Museum, just outside Oslo. This is a wonderful museum my parents used to take me to when I was a child. If you don't believe me, take the virtual tour!

This was my all time favorite thing about living in Norway...on Bygdoy! Did I ever tell you that?

Love you!
