An Extended Ride North

Didn’t I beat it into your heads yet how much I love the North? Now, my dream vacation is something like Niflheim/Iceland/Oslo/a Viking Ship/the North Pole* all rolled into one, or maybe that treacherous expedition Frankenstein goes on (albeit without all the letter-writing and death) but on February 14 of next year, I will officially be on my way to Alaska.

As Stars serenades you, allow me to regale you with pre-stories about my trip. My best friend and I have been planning to visit Alaska since we were wee ones in middle school. Now that we’re both largely unemployed, we’ve decided that this is a good opportunity to scrape together some pennies and see the northern lights. We’re going to two of Alaska’s biggest cities: Anchorage and Fairbanks. All of the parkas, we will need. I may love the north but I have a low threshold for cold, despite how much I look forward to winter every year. Thank goodness I didn’t throw out those Uggs yet. Can you buy hand warmers in bulk?

We’re at a solar maximum so I’m expecting the above six out of the five nights we’re staying.

On another note, please listen to Stars if you don’t already love them.
