February 3

Proceeds story quickly w, between the last few days, come what will the story of Aurora with friends when drinking at a party or something, I said with a light glue What actually "go" now to go from the weekend really.

Speaking and Aurora (Aurora / Northern Lights), before such a thing as I wrote, and was one of the goals of a long time. It should be noted, and it's not 10 years later still go early to come to Canada ·. (Grand Canyon went twice already. Rest · pyramid. Of Egypt, incidentally)

The frequency of appearance of the aurora is closely related to sunspot, it seems there is a cycle in this year, so he is apparently composed in its heyday. (Which is of course also fuel surcharge) or high ticket is high partly it ·. (You have to say that it did not choose the dates to match the rest of all the members cheap go) to a domestic flight of just three hours, and normally will Ranked # $ 1,000.

Generally, this is to participate in what an aurora tour plus it because they will use Ranked # $ 800 including tax When it comes to stay (pale in perhaps to say that) Hotel decent, a total of thing in Yellowknife this is $ first I thought and I guess it becomes difficult to 1,800 over budget. $ 1,800 is higher in the short trip of 3 nights · I mean.

However, we found that you can float the cost much if you participate in the appreciation in the local Aurora taking the various hotels I checked myself. And, since clearly higher, and, on suites with oven stove and (stove) (I or I want to eat a little if some or meat of caribou demo) without any should eat something delicious in the land of the far north this is even if you eat out I decided to stay.

In addition, I was able to float the cost, on-site cost is further reduced to about $ 400 if the aurora viewing on their own rent a car. Around the lake, such as frozen or even rent a car during the day if you put, is so various and tourism can be. However, the drive of the Arctic night because no one lost their lives in money trouble, you must prepare in advance a lot of things research.

You have described a breakdown of the cost of this (all tax included). I hope to be able to reference in case there was a man I go to see the aurora in the same if you feel like.

At the site of the $ 990 ※ West Jet Hotel Reservations: Direct flights because the room with a ※ full kitchen ($ 168 per day) 3 $ 168 x in self-catering basic car rental date: 3 $ 74 x ($ 74 per 1) ※ gasoline vehicle insurance use a credit card for incidental: that only one night ($ 126) ※ will see a day tour to participate in the Aurora viewing tour ※ estimate the extra gas ($ 30 per person) $ 90 is probably high You borrow only when the appreciation ($ 47) ※ Warm Clothing Aurora rental day was to

$ 1,435 total

Why did Choi finished at about $ 1,000 total flight time must be so high ·. But I surely do not go much have to go to when I wanted to go, it seems banner year this year, I'm looking forward to it.

(In BC is. Salary of 1.5 times the time off if you have them can be used as a break of 1.5 times. And overtime)

(It is because I was unemployed until the beginning of July Well), it was decided to take this opportunity to take a leave of absence last summer, so did not take a break at all.

So, from July 10 to 18, is likely to come to go to camp to Rocky in 9 days 8 nights. Camp Rocky is the first time in three years. The last trip I had time to become a food poisoning in the unfortunate, but this time I will do my best to be able to take care camp fun.

Speaking of which, I have a record of the journey ends in the middle of the last · · ·. I think I remember Oita truly has faded since three years ago, because of the precious memories of the trip, try to write until the end to rely on a photo when you have time.

Receipt of the final stage of the review letter immigration to Canada, passport request, send a passport from Japan, so I wanted to avoid in various circumstances, we decided to bring directly to the Canadian Consulate in Buffalo.

Then, we arrived at the airport in Buffalo on November 27 at around 3:00 pm.

Suddenly faced with major problems first. After reading the documents in the plane casually, "If you bring a passport, from 8:00 to 11 pm Tuesday or Thursday morning ...".

Dangerous, I had been mistaken for "between Tuesday through Thursday!"

This time, because work was scheduled to begin in Japan from Monday of next week, just can not stay only four days, two days, took the tickets at the scheduled two days in Vancouver to Buffalo.

So, can not do anything to Buffalo as the 27th of the first day of evening wear, so will be the only time that there is no 28-day Wednesday. If you do not get accepted if only on Tuesdays and Thursdays, must not end up without having to cancel my ticket starting Thursday morning, would have been automatically canceled after that all ticket Sonaruto · · ·.

That now, to try to talk the situation go to the Canadian Consulate to understand while 27 Tuesday because it was on this day, and too late.

From the airport was able to go to downtown is $ 1.75 by bus # 204. Nephew to say so tell me when you get to HSBC Canadian Consulate center with the driver, told me that when you get the "Get off".

If you try to ride to the elevator in the HSBC Center, the security of a scary black, "or misuse of what is?"

And say "I'm in the consulate of immigrants to Canada", "Please come in today from 8:00 to 11 pm was already closed. Tomorrow morning."

I've heard? "Why do not you Ikase on I was not a child to 11 pm from 8:00 of today there is a situation a little, because he wants to it could also just talk," today "was closed again. Of tomorrow unilaterally in the face and scary. "Please come in from 8 am to 11 pm ·.

To come at 8:00 the next morning is not clear Rachi. · I fear it.

The city of Buffalo is a very strong cold wind. Had become like a snow blizzard (w camera was broken so the store can take only photos of Buffalo) when I went up to the next town to take pictures of documents for immigrants in the evening.

We will just use the Northwest. Worst-case were gone baggage finally flight Vancouver will be canceled, were made to the waiting list at the airport for 16 hours, you get to Vancouver - Speaking of Northwest, when it entered the Vancouver three years ago, Seattle Transit I was worried because it was really an experience of the airline, this will do?
