Hello family and friends!
It's THAT time of year again: When seemingly overnight the world has morphed into a holiday wonderland and suddenly you can't seem to get away from Christmas carols on every station of the radio... If you're like me, now's about the time you realize you have a ton of gift shopping to do - but no time, and NO idea what to get that one tough nut on your list!
If I was one of those nuts you were wracking your brains over but coming up blank and/or wondering about the glorious postal system and wheter your thoughtfully selected item would make it ALL the way to Italy (which seems to never miss the opportunity to loose the most important packages)... I've come up with a solution! You could help me do the thing I love and long for the most: Travel!
BUT this is not just ANY kind of travel... No, no....
Help me check off the #1 item reigning supreme on my bucket list! Make the most amazing, once-in-a-lifetime adventure come true! Coming up in the winter of 2014 I have my sights set on a trek FAAAAAR north into the Finnish-Lapland with the Aurora Zone. I'll be venturing above the arctic circle to witness first-hand and photograph the famed Aurora Borealis (or Northern Lights). This winter is an especially unique opportunity where our Sun is at the height of it's cycle, which only comes every 12 YEARS! This "Solar Max" means that the auroras will be at their brightest - an opportunity that will not to return for over a decade!
So, if you were thinking about sending something, I'd propose a contribution for this. Whether it be $10 or $1000 (One can dream!) I will be ecstatic and forever grateful! Your gift will go a long way to making this long-time dream come true! And IF you do send some holiday cheer my way (please do not feel compelled), please do send me a good mailing address for you... I would LOVE to send you a card after my trip with a photograph or two as my own thanks!
