My Quest for financial freedom alongside living a consciously cool life.
So you finally got to see the Northern Lights! I've only seen them once in my life, way back in the 90's. The odd thing is that I wasn't that far north when I saw them, which means it was even more rare and I was really fortunate to be traveling at night out in the country and notice it when it happened. Sadly, I had no camera at the time, although I still remember it quite well. Very nice pictures!
Yes I finally saw the big bright light show! Surprisingly, it wasn't the most memorable aspect of the trip. It was the fantastic people I met. I learned that when there is a minimum G3 storm, the auroral oval extends way south to our latitudes and they don't get to see anything up north at all, so indeed you were very fortunate.
