AS HUNDREDS OF STUDENTS were flying south for the winter, down to Mexico to get drunk on beaches and do tequila shots at various Senior Frog’s’s, I was all by myself. Freezing my ass off on a lake in Yellowknife.
I spent four glorious days there taking in the aurora borealis during what was easily the most memorable spring break of my life.
The best part? My round-trip airfare costs totaled a whopping $32.50. How? Miles. 25,000 of them.
