          Today is our last day in Yellowknife and I think we all have a bit of cabin fever. The worse bit is it is so beautiful and sunny outside. When you look out the window you just want to get among it all but as soon as you walk out the door.........FREEZING!

          Still not feeling great. Pete took the kids to the laundry mat and did the washing …

          (Insert every swear word you know) it is cold here

          Good news, Pete saw the Aurora too. I think he actually had better visibility then me, typical.

          I almost feel that we have now experienced what we came here to see and it is alright to leave but I will go out on the tour again tonight. We have come all of this way....because of me (damn bucket list).

          Ventured to the indoor …

          Thrilled, I saw the Northern Lights, bucket list, tick.

          Pete goes …

          Found the hotel gym. Pete and kids were still sleeping on my return so what else to you do? Go back to bed.

          How do I explain Yellowknife….friggin, bl##dy, friggin cold. Don't bother sending prisoners to jail, just send them here for a while, they will never commit another crime again.

          Plus, it is totally working as a threat …

          On the road (plane) again....again...again

          Boarded our Air Canada flight (Jazz) to Yellowknife and everything appeared to be going as per a usual flight until we were about 1 hr away from our destination. The Captain advised that there was a problem and we needed to turn back to Calgary. Who am I to argue with any mechanical problem. I was feeling a little nervous as I hate flying but the …
