Dog-Friendly Northern Lights Tour in Tromso, Norway

northern light tour tromso with dog 

Snuffles and I went to Tromso with the sole aim of catching the elusive Northern Lights/Aurora Borealis. We were too early for other winter activities such as dog-sledding or whale watching which was quite sad, but I guess we just wanted to make sure that we caught the lights! We were there 1-4 October 2022. It took me awhile to find a dog-friendly company that will accept Snuffles on the almost 10-hour tour.

Best Mid-Range Sushi Omakase Restaurants in Tokyo

As you probably already know, I've been to Tokyo numerous times, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE sushi. On my most recent visit, I made it a point to visit Tsukiji as much as I can to try out the sushi restaurants there. On top of multiple trips to the famous fish market, I also popped by a couple of mid-range sushi restaurants that are known for their affordable and absolutely delicious sushi omakase. I was spending 4,300yen to 5,000yen on sushi sets in Tsukiji and none of these supposedly top-rated restaurants even came close to the 3 restaurants featured in this article. If you're a sushi lover too, you can't miss these three restaurants. Your sushi cravings will definitely be satiated and you'll feel like every penny has been completely and utterly well spent.
