Wanderlust Wednesday: The Northern Lights


What do you do when you live your life with a bad case of wanderlust on a school teacher’s budget with a husband who thinks that walking to the mailbox is satisfying enough? Besides become addicted to The Amazing Race, that is? (Side note: I’m totally going to be on that show some day. As soon as I feel like my kids are old enough to abandon for a month, I’m there. You just wait.)

What was I talking about? Oh yeah.

Create a Pinterest board of places you’ll never get to see, of course! There’s a little song that goes with my board:

I could wear out all my vocals
conferring with the locals,
in Africa or Maine.
And my itch I’d be scratchin’
While my travel plans were hatchin’
If I only had a plane.

Oh we could go and see
The ocean near the shore.
We could eat some things we never ate before.
And then we’d sit
And eat some more.

I could go by bus or bike,
Which ever way I’d like.
I’d even take a train.
And my passport I’d be fillin’
While the sights I saw were thrillin’
If I only had a plane.

Okay, enough of that. The point being, I think I have a nomad’s heart. With many kids and few dollars, I know my wanderlust will never be satisfied. And that’s okay. It’s worth the tradeoff. BUT (if you buy 3 completos), I’m starting a new thing here called “Wanderlust Wednesday” in which I will be posting things from my travel board. Or not. Might depend on the week. As you might have noticed already, I’m not exactly Mrs. Consistent. I’ll post a picture or something from the board and if I have something to say about it, I’ll do that too. But sometimes it will just be a picture.

For today, I’d like to share with you one of the things I’ve wanted to see for as long as I can remember…like since the day I found out it existed: The Northern Lights.


Stunning, right? Someday…someday.

Have you ever seen the Northern Lights? What is something in the world you’ve always wanted to see? Share in the comments!

  2. They are definitely amazing, the way they dance through the sky! And if they are particularly active you can hear them too :) my favorite part of living in Alaska, you have to go someday!
