Aurora Borealis

I’ve mentioned this before; but one thing that has always been on my bucket list is seeing the Aurora Borealis. This is something I’m going to make sure we do in Canada! However, it’s looking like it’s going to cost a fair bit, plus there’s specific times of the year when spotting them is more likely, so we’re going to have to plan it properly!

Xmas is my favourite time of year, always has been, and I’m determined to enjoy every second as it’ll be a bit different next year! We put our Xmas tree up at the weekend, a real one may I add.
