Competition: win a chance to see the beautiful Northern Lights


Almost on every traveller’s bucket list is seeing the Northern Lights. Famously elusive but truly spectacular, the Aurora Borealis even topped a UK survey of the most sought after travel experience in the world. Seeing the natural phenomenon gained 37% of the vote closely followed by visiting the Egyptian pyramids, a USA Route 66 road trip and walking the Great Wall of China.

I remember when we were lucky enough to be treated to this beautiful natural display ourselves. We were submerged in a snowy wilderness and battling minus 30 degree temperatures in Finnish Lapland. On one clear and crisp evening we stepped outside our log cabin and saw the dark night sky gently streaked with shimmering curtains of glowing greens, blues, yellows and reds – definitely a moment we’ll both never forget.

Born in England, with a few family roots from Bavaria, and a heart in Scandinavia I've always been a bit of a restless soul. My first true adventure began as a six month voyage around South East Asia as a fresh faced backpacker and ever since I've lived a semi nomadic existence, clocking up over 40 countries on trips and living in Dublin, South East Asia and Australia. I'm a lover of US Road Trips, deserted beaches bathed in warm glow of a sunset, Cuban mojitos, easy-on-the-eye travel destinations far away from the tourist crowds and all things Scandinavian - from cloudberry liquors to Scandi Noirs. When not wandering the world, you'll find me walking my rescue dog in leafy South West London, strolling around the Brighton Laines on random day trips, hunting for photogenic landscapes or daydreaming about returning to my all time favourite places in the world; Havana, Copenhagen, Italy, Thailand and the frozen landscapes of a wintry Iceland.
