Alaska, Here We Come!

This is one busy summer. Less than a week ago we came back from a three-week-long trip to Yellowstone and surrounding national parks, and today we're flying to Alaska for two weeks.

Badlands National Park - One of the Highlights of the "Yellowstone Trip"

I sincerely hope Alaska will be as beautiful and intriguing as I imagine, as I've never had to work so hard to plan any other trip as this one. Planning the trip to Alaska took a lot of time because of two key reasons: (1) Not many places in Alaska can be reached by roads, hence the need to prearrange other forms of transport like small planes and/or boats; (2) Not many businesses in Alaska have good websites and online reservation systems, which meant that I needed to spend many hours on the phone calling one business after the other.

But now the planning phase is over and it's time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the new frontier :)
