Since I was seven years old I have dreamed of exploring the wild that is the great sate of Alaska. I blame my grandparents as they took my older sister (14 at the time) on a cruise through Alaska and I was promised I would be able to go when I was older. As time went by I got more and more excited for my Alaskan adventure, but sadly things in life change and I wasn't able to go to Alaska.
I want to experience all that Alaska has to offer, from the whale watching to craft beers, to the wildlife to the glaciers. I want to see it all.
I want to walk down the streets of Anchorage from pub to pub
Alaska has been an item on my travel bucket list for awhile now and seeing as I am going to be the big 3-0 next July I figured that is the perfect time to go. Now comes the tricky part... Cruise or a land adventure? A week or two? June, July or August? Who do I take with me?
The easy part was seeing that one cruise line offers unlimited cocktails and beverages as long as I book before October 31st so you can bet your pretty behinds that I will be booking said cruise, if that is what I choose, by the 31st of next month. Additionally, with a cruise you do a down payment and make monthly payments up to 75 days prior to embarking. I don't know about you, but that sounds like an excellent idea to me.
I guess I should quit dawdling and start planning and researching more!
