No photo to show since i failed in my attempt to see it. The Northern Lights are a beautiful phenomena. Some people call it a “once in a lifetime experience”, especially tour operators trying to cash in on tourist dollars. I would suggest that one should not think of the Northern Lights as a once in a lifetime event. Just think of the residents in those regions where he Northern Lights occur, they would see it over and over again.
Fast Travel is not exactly the opposite of Slow Travel. Among the 10 principles mentioned in Slow Travel Europe (March 2009), “A Manifesto for Slow Travel”, there is only one principle against which i would propose a different approach:
2. Travel slow. Avoid planes if at all possible, and instead enjoy ferries, local buses and slow trains. Speed destroys the connection with landscape. Slow travel restores it.
As mentioned in my previous posting, i had the misfortune of a second encounter with pick-pocketing, in Barcelona. However, “thanks” to the previous encounter, i learnt how not to fall prey this time.
Not unexpectedly, I’m back from my Grand Tour of Europe and i haven’t had time to blog during the trip, so it looks like i will have to do so retrospectively. Anyway, thanks for tuning in!
