First of all Tori did an excellent job with this title, A+ job. Anyway, besides that, Tori is a great blogger and very similar to myself, which is probably why I love reading her blog so much. So while I go out super late in Spain with Molly, enjoy Tori’s post! Also to answer her question I want to venture to the other side of the world next, maybe Australia or New Zealand. However, I need to go back and spend some time exploring my own country before I leave anymore.
I’m Tori! From torisstories.com and I am so excited to be a guest blogger today! I am a lover of coffee, books, dogs and adventures of any kind! (much like Mary)
I thought I would talk to you guys about something that has been heavily on my mind recently. Wanderlust. Well, honestly it is always on my mind, but this time it is way more intense than normal.
I want to go there so badly I am getting excited just writing about it right now. I bet by the end of this post you will, too.
Since middle school, I have been obsessed with wanting to see the Northern Lights. They are so beautiful and I have this urge to want to experience them in real life. I am determined to make it a reality. It may not be anytime soon, but it will happen.
Yellowknife is located in the Northwestern Territories and it quite a remote location, perfect to see the Northern Light! From where I live (Upstate New York), it is roughly a two and a half day drive. The last part of the drive is a four hour stretch with nothing but you, the road and the tundra. It sounds terrifying but I am more than willing to make this trip in life! That’s why they call it adventures, right?
There is a place outside of Yellowknife, called the Aurora Village and it is where you stay to see the lights. In Teepees! Thinking about it right now makes me so excited. I would love nothing more than to stay in Aurora Village and viewing the Northern Lights from a Teepee. How awesome is that?! I’d be able to take some breathtaking photos that day too!
There are also just so many other amazing things to possible do there. Something I would be interested in is dog sledding. You get to play with the puppies and even go for a dog sled ride and go MUSH MUSH! (I don’t think that’s actually how it works, haha ..maybe?)
Have you ever thought about “snow mobile skiing” on a completely frozen lake? That is also a really awesome thing you can do there! It’s not really jet skiing, but you hold a rope and you are in skis and it pulls you all over the snow and ice. Sounds thrilling and so different than anything else, too!
There are so many other thing to do in this city, but if I went on and on, we would be here all day, so I’ll stop here! I feel like it is such a unique place to go that not many people ever talk about and for some reason I am so excited about wanting to go. I don’t know what it is, but thinking about this makes me giddy, like a child. Such a nerd. I really enjoyed writing this a lot, hope you did too!
I normally end my posts with a question, so here’s yours:
What’s the number one place you want to go to?
