Travel is good for the soul. Through travel we learn things about new places, people, cultures and ourselves. This past August I had a great adventure that took me to the Land of the Midnight Sun: Alaska.
A TALE OF A NON-CRUISER CRUISING…
My adventure began with my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary. In celebration, it was their wish that the whole family set a course for adventure on board the Princess Ruby cruise ship - destination Alaska! I have never considered myself a cruiser and would never have chosen a cruise as option number one when making travel plans. Visions of being stuck on a boat for long stretches of time, sea sickness, or worse Norovirus, danced in my head (remember the poop cruises that were in the news a few years ago?) . My worst fears never came to fruition, however, and cruising turned out to be much more enjoyable than I could have imagined. It is really a great way to see Alaska for the first time and there is no better way to see Glacier Bay, which was was a moving experience in itself.
Alaska is spectacular! The scenery is breathtaking and it is full of beautiful art, culture, people and food. It was a truly memorable and super fun adventure! I found inspiration everywhere and I will share more of what inspired me in a future post!
