Towards frigid wild north

Ok so we did not go on this journey when it was winter. But it was still cold for us, tropical folks high up (in latitude terms) in search of the northern most state of the US. Yes we are talking about Alaska.

Here’s the start of our US Series.

Halfway in this series we will take a break and Segway back to Europe for a while. Why? Because we say so. Ok so there is a reason for it. That way, we don’t take too long to bring our European handprint stories to the blog.

But before we dive deep into Alaska, we had to make our way there. Now most people fly, but we decided to go by sea. Not swimming but by cruise. And a reasonably luxurious one too where we stopped and got off as we wished. In this segment, we chronicled our start from the British Columbian city of Vancouver and made 3 stops along the way.

From appreciation of native American culture to visiting a glacier, we did it all. And we also saw the region from which the old gold prospectors would have gazed upon full of hope to strike it rich that one time. Some did, but the ones that truly got wealthy were the ones who provided the means for which these mineral seekers to embark on their journey. Sounds familiar doesn’t it? Don’t understand what we refer to?

It was a fascinating journey for us, and we are sure it will be for you too. Part I begins here.

    1. Yes indeed! Eventhough it was June and supposedly “high” summer, the temperatures were still low. You might see in the page link that we were still dressed like it was winter!
