Ants in my Pants

Last night wasn't very eventful - I spent most of it trying to research polar bear trips online. Isn't it annoying when you realise that the first tour you found has all the aspects you're looking for at the cheapest rate. So far the one I have my heart set on is Natural Habitat's Tundra Lodge Adventure with the Dog-Sledding Extension. If I'm lucky I'll be able to cross 3 things off my Life List: 4. Ride on a Husky driven dog-sled, 8. See the Aurora Borealis and 18. Watch Polar Bears crossing Hudson Bay, Canada :) Now if only they'd please farking respond already ... I have ants in my pants and want to get this going! Am nervous about a Canadian visa (any one got any words of wisdom here?). I read online that you have to include trip itinerary and flight details ... and then in brackets it says "we don't advise buying your tickets before getting your visa approved". Erm, okay then ... I'll be calling them a little later today to find out how I'm supposed to get all that right.

Other than that I spent the evening making dinner for tonight - damn these stews that need to simmer for almost 3 hours :P I made Tomato Bredie. I vaguely remember really enjoying this meal ... but watching it cook, I'm not sure yet how well this one has turned out. I guess we'll find out this evening ;)

That sounds like a very exciting trip. I'll keep my fingers crossed that it works out like you planned it!

Just realised what a daft comment that was, considering the amazing trip you have planned. Wow!!!
