Alaskan Cruise Recap

Alaskan Cruise Recap

We got back from our Alaskan cruise last week and took a week to myself to spend my time with my family and handle affairs at work. Transition  back into reality is going smoothly the following week-long vacation and feeling recharged and re-energized with new insights. I am beginning to see why taking a vacation is so important.

I am going to include Seattle, WA as a part of our Alaskan cruise vacation because we have spent 2 days exploring the city as city rats and Seattle was an embarkation point for our cruise. We went up on Space Needle, visited Chihuly Garden and Glass, went to ACT Theatre, SOUND,¬† in downtown Seattle, the famous Pike Place Market, and strolled along the waterfront. My love for Seattle grew after 25 years since I last visited because I became more aware of Seattle’s lifestyle.

The following Seattle exploration and embarked for our Alaskan cruise, it was amazing and a trip of a lifetime! I mean Alaska, something that everybody should not pass up the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit Alaska. We also had great time on Norwegian Pearl, the cruise we boarded on which was a learning experience for us. We got to see Juneau, Skagway, Glacier Bay National Park, Ketchikan, and Victoria, B.C., Canada.

It surely felt strange to be back home from Alaska and I said to myself, “Is that all?” Southeast Alaska, or an inside passage as some people would call it, is only a small part of the whole state.

I felt like I only saw 1% of Alaska. My wife and I have decided to explore more on land over cruise so we have more time on land and to see a bigger Alaska. I am going into further details about Alaska in future blog posts. Sure, Alaska got some great jokes especially poking the fun out of Texas that I cannot wait to share.

I cannot wait to go back to Alaska again for more adventures.
