Geirlaug grew up in a village close to a fort. She was a happy child and always willing to help her parents with anything. One day her mother had broken her leg but Geirlaug helped her daily with the household chores and kept her informed about events outside the village. Geirlaug's mother was much respected as she was very involved in village festivities and events. Geirlaug's parents gave her a pony to get things done more quickly in and out of the village. She enjoyed riding her sturdy pony and became a very skilled rider. These talents did not go unnoticed and one of the jarl's men asked her to join and work as a scout. Geirlaug did not want to at first as her parents depended on her a great deal. After her mother died due to an illness her father ran the household and she was given more freedom. The second time she was asked to work as a scout she accepted. Her training began at the jarl's fort. Within 2 years she was allowed to join an expedition. During one of the expeditions she met her future husband Tindur who was living on the other side of a shallow sea.
