Sponsored Post: Luxury Cruises At A Snip

When it comes to finding a luxury cruise, the world really is your oyster. Will you opt for a lavish jaunt around the beautiful Norwegian Fjords, taking in the stunning sights of the Northern Lights?

Alaska: North To The Future – Day Seven & Eight

Friday was primarily a day at sea, with a brief evening stop in Victoria.  During the day Michael and I managed to find a vacant hot tub to hang out in. It was quiet and we talked a lot about how great the trip had been. There was also an ice sculpture demo happening on

Alaska: North To The Future – Day Six

Thursday morning we woke up bright and early, and found ourselves already docked in Ketchikan. We had a duck tour booked first thing, so after eating a quick breakfast, off we went. The duck tour was a land and water tour of the town and the bay. We rode around in an amphibious bus and

So the four of us left Calgary on Friday around noon and headed southwest, towards B.C. and eventually the border.  It was a long old slog, but we drove through Crowsnest Pass (always scenic) and stopped in Sparwood to visit

Alaska: Land Of The Midnight Sun

I know it’s been quiet around here (pesky obligations such as work and sleep have prevented much writing). We have a few more adventures under our belts, which will eventually get posted, but in a few short hours the four of us will be on our way towards Seattle, where we are catching a cruise
