In the beginningâ€¦ many thoughts and lots of doubts!

I take a look at my calendar and checked,â€¦ itâ€™s really 12 November,â€¦ it has been almost 2 months since I looked back, for what was the last years and realized I have to get alive, again, and with a new age stage to face upon!
The only particular note about this day, was the fact that I bought this new notebook, a travel notebook on which I intended to write my impressions and thoughts about my journey to be! A travel notebook to remember me of my adventures and misadventures! Would be my travel chronicles!!!
A journey scheduled to start about a month from this day on the 8th December (actually on the evening of the 7th but Iâ€™ll get to my target destination only in afternoon of the 8th) and on which, I believed at this point, I would be all by myself, something that promise to be a journey in the journey itself!
Also the destination chosen, for this lonesome adventure, wasnâ€™t much the kind of destination most people would even consider to go nearby at this time of year â€“ a journey into the Norwegian Arctic in the middle of the polar night season!!!
I guess you have to be some kind of fool to consider this one hell of a great holiday! Well, you can call me crazyâ€¦ and some did :-)
On the many invitations I made, to friends and work buddies, the best I could get was some maybes that soon went to canâ€™t do it now, sorry!
Well, the planeâ€™s tickets already booked and bought since late September, so that settles things quite easy, TromsĂ¸, here I come!!!
Ah! And, what for, you might ask!
Only to see (or try to see) the Aurora Borealis â€“ or Northern Lights as they call it in northern countries! Again, call me crazyâ€¦ again, some did :-)[Just a piece of advice, if you are planning to go this far north, and you donâ€™t want to be taken by crazy, itâ€™s easyâ€¦ just say you are going to Santaâ€™s homeland, everyone seam to consider this as a normal and reasonable explanation!!! :-) ]
