By now I’m sure you think that I actually did do something horrible to my husband-like throw him off Mt McKinley, and then I disappeared deep into the Alaskan tundra never to be found again…! Sounds like a great story, but,after finally getting to the airport, Mark actually calmed down, and we had a wonderful trip.
Beautiful scenery, 2 weeks with close friends, great food-what could be better?
Well, I will tell you, while it was a wonderful adventure of a lifetime, I am exhausted!! I have never traveled in a tour before. Our family vacations generally revolve around the laid back ocean and /or island time, or getaways with no particular destination or timeline. Alaska was different! It was: have your bags out at 5am or 6am, on the bus, train or ship by 8am, followed by see all you can see and do over the next 16 hours! And lets not forget-you could really sight see for 24 hours straight, because it is still rather bright at 3am in the morning!!
…and, believe me, Alaska is a BIG! There’s a lot of wilderness out there! Now that being said, we saw…
Not so “wild” animals
And Great times with Wonderful Friends!
Great fun? YES!! Relaxing? NO ! But then who said all vacations should be relaxing?
Give yourself permission to be open to new adventures, even when they are not what you expect!
Great things are waiting!
