This past week I managed to accomplish two feats at once by completing our first family Tesla Road trip, whilst successfully convincing my kids to give an audiobook a shot after my wife’s brilliant nostalgic recommendation to do so.

We settled on Norse Mythology which has been a lifelong guilty pleasure of mine, made easier by the parallels to Thor and Loki to the Avenger’s movie my kids greatly enjoy. Learning the mythology behind those characters and hearing “real” stories about their families and the universe therein was a wonderful treat for them that proved to be incredibly enjoyable for our ~12 hours of driving.

This was a splendid read with great information and stories I hadn’t heard/read before; particularly those about Baldur and the origins of Mjolnir.
