OOPS! Made a slight error on last blog..The trip cost for the 2 of us will be around $12000 not $19000..
We should be getting all our documents in the next week and the excitement is building.We've been reading about the solar flares, and fingers crossed,we are very likely to be able to see the Aurora Borealis when in Fairbanks or even Anchorage.
Also the weather in Fairbanks today is -4c with predicted snow showers!Will be buying my big jacket when we get over there as we've been told that the prices are lower and the quality is the best..
We fly out of Sydney on 21st April so just a little over 4 weeks to go!!
Have changed my mind about the case I will take as it was a good training run going to NZ for 6 days and only just having enough room and that was without buying any souveniers etc.So it will be the big black one going which will leave plenty of room for the anticipated shopping...
