More vacation news

Remember I mentioned I would have some more vacation news coming up? Well...here it is.

A little over a month after returning from the tropical beaches of Hawaii, we will be grabbing our windbreakers and heading to Alaska. We are so extremely fortunate to be taking a 7-night Alaskan cruise (in a financially peaceful way, I assure you). We'll have some great company, as John's family will be with us as well.

Our itinerary will take us through the "inside passage" in Alaska, including a stop in Victoria, British Columbia so I will fulfill my wish to visit Canada. Albeit for about 4 hours, but still.

Both of these trips came up suddenly in the same weekend. It is nice to have something that exciting to look forward to and get excited about so we welcome the reprieve! I don't know what excursions we will take (other than the lumberjack show in Ketchikan that John wants to do) but be certain there will be lots of pictures and my vacations will probably dominate a lot of blogs between now and spring!

Visiting the 49th and 50th state in about a month....wow! 2008 is shaping up to be a good year!

I'm completely jealous. Of course, I used to live in Alaska. Ketchikan is beautiful! I actually lived in Anchorage and didn't travel too much except around the Kenai Peninsula, but you will LOVE it! Also, Todd went to BC and said it was awesome- what a treat for you guys!

Um...ok that is so unfair! We have wanted to do an Alaskan cruise for awhile. Let us know all that fab. spots to go.
