A few months ago, I was hit with the realization that out of everywhere I’ve trekked in this great wide world, I have never been further north than my hometown of Grande Prairie, Alberta. I’m passionately proud to be Canadian, but I have never even set foot in the Great White North!
While my craving to travel north grew to unbearable heights, Travel Yukon opened a competition to send one lucky Canadian up to Dawson City, Yukon. I stumbled across the ad on Facebook and immediately entered. When I was selected as one of five finalists, it started to feel a lot like fate.
I’m using this as the last video in my nine-week vlog because of the significant opportunity it presents. I want to lie beneath the Aurora Borealis. I want to trek across the white world. I want to touch my lips to a human toe. And I want to share it—every minute—with all of you on Twitter, Instagram, Vine, Facebook, and, of course, this travel blog! Vote for me to vicariously bring you along by liking and sharing my video. Please support me and give this video exposure to persuade Travel Yukon that I will make the most of this amazing experience!
(Aside: If you’re watching on a mobile device, you’ll have to use headphones to hear all of the sound effects. Not sure why, take your complaints to YouTube!)
Thank you for your support, and as always, happy travels!
