i've grown restless here so i've decided to go out to sea again. i've heard some talk about this city called York from my brother Asgaut. i figure its time to expand my horizons and try my hand at purely trading with no raiding. i have a large amount of amber to use for trading. since Amber is one of the three primary luxury goods there I should be in good shape. the other two being Byzantine silkes and german wines.
i'm here in York now and its very interesting, the houses here are very different than the house i'm used too. however i can completely understand the necessity of two story houses versus the one story houses to save space. another interesting thing is Erik Bloodaxe died the day after i arrived and yet nothing is changing or will change it seems.
