Day 4: Posting a Northern Lights Question

Colorful-Aurora-Borealis-in-Finland

Ok, getting serious here.  I’ve always wanted to go to Iceland to see the Northern Lights.  Hey, Walter went to Iceland, so why can’t I? (Hmmm….I’m starting to see a pattern here. You’d think the recovering spinal cord surgery patient would want to stay away from slippery, icy landscapes…but, after yesterday and today’s posts, one might surmise that I like to live dangerously). But, really… I’ve wanted to catch a glimpse of the Aurora Borealis for eons. After being stuck inside recuperating for a year, why shouldn’t 2014 be the time?  Huh? I ask you, WHY?

It’s doubtful that I’ll actually go on such a trip, but to keep my commitment of doing something new each day, I just posted a question on tripadvisor asking advice re: whether the NL viewing in Iceland would be better in February or March of this new year, when I have some vacation time coming to me. Certainly, I’ve never posted anything like that on a travel site before.

The funny thing is, I despise cold weather…but right now I have zero desire to go to a warm, beach-y climate.  I wonder…perhaps subconsciously I’m hoping the cold shock to my system (along with the beautiful dancing lights) would help awaken me after my year-long hibernation. Deep, eh?  Now, time to have my coffee and check out the celebrity gossip on TMZ.

Each day of 2014, I’m forcing encouraging myself to have at least one new experience (and chronicling it to keep it real). If you’re interested in why–though I can’t for the life of me imagine anyone would be that bored–check out the “about” page.
