"To travel is to live." Hans Christian Andersen said it best when he wrote "The Fairy Tale of My Life" in 1855. And what better way to culminate this Nordic adventure by jetsetting back to Manila from Andersen's hometown, København.
Abroad was always my good "respite... to offer me peace", as Andersen puts it. But this trip, in keeping with his works, was magical to say the least.

Here's my second, closer, encounter with the aurora. Due to persistence, after an elusive (and somewhat underwhelming) display in Lapland, I went off (albeit alone), to find and chase her in Risvika, 40 minutes out of Tromsø, along the coastline. As soon as we went down the bus, she showed herself with so much splendor, illuminating the skyline wherever you look. Colors of pink, green, white and yellow appeared above our heads and you can't help but feel awestruck with how powerful a force nature is. After that we were treated by local delicacies in a Sami hut, with cakes, hot coffee and a dose of laughter from our global group.

Gazing at it was a spiritual experience. One will feel energized from the calm (ironic, I know) brought about by the show of lights. It is a sight to behold and a feeling to absorb.
As I travel back to Manila, I look at this photo and say that during my lifetime, even prior the two weeks I've stayed in Northern Europe, with all my travels, I have truly lived.

Had an awesome lunch yesterday at Papiroen. Previously an island stockhouse for all the city's newspapers, it was now converted to a hip street food joint. Much like your container food park in MNL. This fish and chips extravaganza costs as much as an eat all you can dinner buffet in the PH. Haha. Tasty though. And fresh!
