How I Lost All My Family Photos

How I Lost All My Family Photos

Memories are a fascinating entity in one’s life as they are embedded in the dreams, special moments and goals one has captured and can never be taken back or changed by anyone. That is why growing up we had a tradition where every Christmas we would go through all the photos taken that year and reminisce on the memories created.

When I got my own family I ended up assimilating that culture and continued saving all my family’s memories on my phone and as we approached December I was ecstatic as I knew we would be harking back on what a year we have had through our photos. Unfortunately, a week before Christmas I got mugged and lost my phone and with that, I lost all my family’s photos and any memory captured. They were more than photos to me; they were recollections of my children’s birthdays, my anniversary, family brunches and functions that is what I had lost.

Frustrated and angry I started to Google on ways I could recover my photos as Christmas was fast approaching and I did not want to tell my family I had lost all our photos. I was already picturing the disappointing look my wife and children would give me when I break the news to them. A determined soul never leaves any stone unturned therefore I spent hours in my laptop and constantly became aggravated as I did not find any solution.

Lost in thoughts of what I would do a friend of mine walked in and asked me why I looked so distraught and after narrating the story to him he was kind enough to give me tips on what to do so that I would never lose my photos again. He referred me to a few affordable sites where one can print digital photos online for free. My initial reaction to this was who still uses print and he opened my eyes to the growth print has had over the years and how it is not dead.

Well I know many will find this somewhat old-fashioned as they want to have their photo collage on their phone galleries rather than printing but printing saves you from loss of memorable moments like I did. Sites such as canvas printing, Free prints, Snapfish and AdoramaPix among others make it possible for one to print out their memories and even walk around with these photos on your wallet or even mount one in your house.

As we all embrace digitalism we should also embrace how digital has immensely modified print. If you choose to print your photos it gives you the opportunity to bring images together and create a scrapbook where you can edit your favorite memories and even learn a thing or two on how to better your other photos.

Personally, I recommend people to opt for printing their photos as phones and computers could easily get lost or corrupted but physical photos last longer as memoirs.

The 8 Northern Lights Facts: answering the aurora questions

The 8 Northern Lights Facts: answering the aurora questions

Northern Lights Facts
The Aurora Borealis Facts

Introduction

You will find answers to a lot of your Northern Lights questions in this northern lights facts section.

You can read the facts and find answers to questions. Such as what are the Northern Lights? What Causes the Northern Lights?

The 8 northern lights facts you should know

  • The Northern Lights, which are a type of Aurora, often called a Polar Light, is all natural and seen in the sky. Usually seen in high-latitude areas, they are produced when a solar wind disturbs the magnetosphere, changing the trajectories of the charged particles found in magnetospheric plasma and solar wind, causing them to go up into the upper atmosphere. When this occurs, they emit a light of different complexities and colors.
  • As part of the northern lights facts, the Aurora Borealis are named after the Roman goddess of the dawn, and Boreas, which is the Greek name Galileo used for the north wind.
  • Polar Lights are also seen in the southern latitudes and known as the Aurora Australis, often referred to as the Southern Lights. Scientists have found that Aurora occurs on other planets as well.
  • First, you have to take a look at the sun, the yellow star that is at the very center of the solar system. As the sun rotates on its axis, the different magnetic fields of it twist and distort. When these fields are knotted together, then they can burst, and then create sunspots. In some cases, these sunspots may be several times the Earth’s diameter in size. The center of the sun reaches 27 million degrees F. As the surface temperature falls and rises, it bubbles and boils. From the sunspot regions on the sun’s surface, particles escape and plasma particles are hurtled into space. This is known as a solar wind.
  • Another aspect of the northern lights facts is that the Solar wind takes about 40 hours to get to the earth. Once it arrives, it has the ability to create the dramatic Northern lights.
  • The colors associated with the Northern lights are generally yellow, violet, pink, blue, and green. In some cases, white and orange. When particles collide with nitrogen, green and yellow colors are produced. Interactions with oxygen result in violet, blue, and red. The specific type of collision that occurs can also change the colors that are seen in the sky. Molecular nitrogen creates purple, while blue displays are caused by atomic nitrogen. Altitude also affects the colors. Violet and purple show up above 60 miles, blue – at altitudes of up to 60 miles, red – above 150 miles, and green – in 150 miles or below.
  • Radiation, magnetic waves and debris constantly bombard the Earth. In most cases, the magnetic field of our planet does a great job at deflecting these particles and rays. It also include those ones that are discharged from the sun. When particles are discharged from the sun, they travel approximately 93 million miles before they drawn to the magnetic poles of the Earth. Once there, they mingle with molecules and atoms of nitrogen, oxygen, and various other elements, which results in the amazing display of the Northern lights.
  • The Northern Lights are visible from space. You can best view it from the International Space Station (added photo).

The 8 northern lights facts can not be despised or overlooked. It helps you in knowing more about the amazing Aurora.

Best locations to see aurora borealis

Tromsø, Alta, and Svalbard are the most popular sites in Norway. Svalbard is the world’s northernmost town and Alta is known as “the town of the northern lights”. Its very northern latitude and unique weather make it one of the best towns to observe the aurora. You can read more details about the northern lights Norway in my dedicated article.

Flights search to Norway

The prices of flying to Norway can be sometimes high. However, the cheapest way of getting there is by flying to Oslo. Even though it is difficult to see the aurora here, it serves you perfectly as an entry point to the country. Oslo Airport is the largest airport in Norway and from here you can take another low-cost flight to your final destination. You can check TripAdvisor, Kiwi, KAYAK, and Cheapflights for affordable flights to Norway and within the country.

Accommodation in Norway 

During your northern lights holiday in Norway, you can find affordable places to stay no matter your destination. You can a select a location in the middle of the Fjord. Thus, you would be able to see the other side of the mountain by traveling a little. Taking a boat ride around the fjord is also a nice experience.

I stayed in a remote place called Aurland during my visit. It is about 10 km south of Sognefjorden in the traditional district of Sogn. In fact, I was able to enjoy all the sites in the area just by walking around. Flåm is also a lovely place to stay. It’s a small village in Aurland that offers you delightful landscapes and friendly citizens.

Transportation in Norway

Some of the few possible ways to travel within Norway are by train, car, plane, bus, and taxi.  If you take a little time to pick your location carefully, a train might be everything you need to move around. The train service is relatively cheap, reliable and can possibly take you anywhere. Train services are available in Oslo and even Bergen. You can visit the Norway Railway Train Service for further information.

I took a train from Oslo to Bergen to see this:

 

Car rental is not too expensive together with the prices of the fuel in Norway which are not cheap. But if you are to move around by car I would recommend that you pay all the toll roads in advance as paying them one by one on the spot will be more expensive. It is the fastest to fly. Of course, but the downside is that it is expensive and also reduces your opportunity to have a peak at the breathtaking nature of Norway.

Food in Norway

No doubt, restaurants are great but quite pricey in Norway. I started my trip with a stop in a local supermarket. The prices are worth it and the country is popular for its high food standard. Grilling my meals outside my cabin saved me some expenses and was a great opportunity to meet my neighbors. If you are planning to prepare your own food, make sure to get accommodation with a kitchen.

  • Check TripAdvisor for affordable restaurants in Norway
  • Check NUMBEO for the cost of food in Norway.

Other adventures

Having a little taste of the local way of living and attractions is always a plus when visiting a new country. During your northern lights holiday in Norway, there are some additional adventures that can help complement your trip. These are Skiing, dog sledding, hiking, sightseeing, and more.
