So, I’ve had “Go see The Northern Lights” on my bucket list for as long as i can remember, therefore its inevitable that i will go some day, however all the signs are telling me to go sooner. The lights look amazing, somewhat breathtaking i’d imagine but as well as the main attraction, lately there have been a few other elements drawing me closer and closer in to one of two winter wonderlands. Yes, you can see The Northern Lights from about ten different places around the world, including Alaska, Canada, Norway and Denmark, however there are two specific destinations that stand out to me.
Iceland and Finland; two places I never thought I’d say “let’s go” nevertheless, in relation to seeing one of my “Wonders of the world”-The Northern Lights, these countries are currently the top contenders. Iceland is attracting me because of the Blue Lagoon (geothermal pool) and Finland for its glass igloos. Surrounded by snow, the contrast of the natural hot water spa would be like heaven, not only because I’m pro-heat but because it looks amazing. Outdoors in a bikini in the snow, yet relaxing in a hot pool provided by mother nature, whats not to love. Then again, the glass igloos look super cool and quirky. More to the point, its just a different experience, again-what’s not to love.
Admittedly, as much as I want to see The Northern Lights i am quite terrified of one major thing; the cold! I’m not a snow lover, no no no. Furthermore, I’ve always said that I would never pay to go somewhere colder than I already am and living in this typical British weather, I’d rather not up and leave to somewhere with far lower degrees. Having said that, there are so many signs telling me to stop being a baby and just go. #yolo. From recently and more frequently being faced with imagery of The Northern Lights on social networks, to people I know going, talking to customers who have coincidentally been and a newspaper article that caught my eye; its like The Northern Lights are haunting me. This is defiantly a sign. So come rain, shine or (i hate to say it) snow, Im going to go. From being on the list to now a highlight on the list, the next decision is whether I go to Iceland or Finland. Time to get researching!
