One of the most inspiring people, and experiences I've rendezvoused with was chasing for the northern lights years ago with Kjetil Skogli. Some of my first days I had ever spent viewing the northern lights was on a tour with him through Norway, and what ended up being Finland as well, to escape some cloudy weather. More recently, I spent a week with he and his family in Tromsø which did make my blog. One of my favourite quotes, and it gives me goosebumps every time I hear it, was from Kjetil where he was hosting some folks at the BBC out on tour one night. "You... You can't imagine it, you have to... You have to see it." On nights like this one, you can't say it any better than that. You can't imagine how fast the aurora moves, you can't imagine how beautiful the greens and purples are to your eyes. I've got some pretty grand plans brewing to bring you up to see it, and they are in the works very nicely. Until then, I'll continue to bring nights like these into your living room - the milky way, the crunch of the snow under your boots, the -41°C, the ice fog, and the most spectacular light show in the universe.
