So, viagra sale cruises aren’t my schteez. They’re slightly boring and culturally irrelevant to me. My dream vacations involve quaint cafes and artisan bakeries – not an endless trough of cafeteria food. And they kinda just dump you in extreme tourist conditions. Oh well, viagra sale it’ll probably be another 20 years before I cruise again. With that said, it was a thoroughly relaxing vacation. No cooking, no cleaning…and I returned home feeling refreshed! I feel truly blessed to have this experience with my sweet family. Oh, and also,Β Alaska is a GORGEOUS.

One thing’s for sure, there’s no shortage of beautiful views in Alaska. I did my best to curate and limit the amount of photos….but it’s just so hard when there is a vista in every glance.

Our first stop was Juneau, Alaska’s capitol. We took a tram up Mt. Roberts and went on a lovely stroll… Felix was sick,Β slightly cold and grumpy. His favourite part was the (indoor) gift shop at the top of the tram.Oh Lovely Bows | Alaska

Day two was Skagway. This was my favourite town – it’s sole purpose seemed to be a tourist destination, though. The darling town basically closes down for winter – after the last cruise ship of the season. But the town was pack full of frontier charm you’d expect to see straight from the pages of White Fang.

After exploring town, weΒ took a train deep into the mountains, just past the Yukon border. It was a stunning trip. The fall colours were ?. It was exactly how I envisioned Alaska… I was not disappointed.

Ketchikan was the last stop on the trip – Alaska’s first town. Again, charm-packed and very touristy. It poured this day. Good thing for us, Felix loves trinket shops!

There you have it! It was an overall great trip! And although cruises can be kinda corny, an Alaskan cruise should totally be on your bucket list. If you enjoyed my Alaska photos, you might enjoy some other trips that Cori and I have taken this summer – you can view them here and here.

Peace and Love,

    Great pics! This looks amazing! I’ve only been to Skagway while no tourists were there, and you’re spot on, it was vacant. But still gorgeous. The autumn train must have been INCREDIBLE. I’m jelly. Good on you for going! And thanks for sharing.
