We had agreed to meet Bri, Ben, and the boys Dorion and Kai there for breakfast. It was a few minutes after 8 and how lucky we were to find that we were the only ones there. Had the whole place to ourselves for breakfast. Now that is my kind of happening. Love it when there are no masses of yakky-doodle people around. Saving money. Group travel is generally much cheaper. You can get group rates on accommodations (you’ve probably seen brochures that say single occupancy, double occupancy, triple occupancy, and so on – the price goes down for each person sharing a room), companion rates for certain modes of transportation (particularly bus and train), group rates into attractions (amusement parks, museums, etc), and there are tons of other things you can split costs on. If you’re able to reduce costs, you’ll have extra money to see and do more things.
The Sun. Alaska, during the summer, has very long days. It’s common knowledge. Around Anchorage, it will be dusk at 11 pm during the summer solstice. If you are travel for the summer, be prepared to be hard-pressed to sleep when it’s dark. A suggestion would be to bring a sleeping mask with you for your trip. During the winter, it is dark most of the day, so sleeping will not be a problem so much as keeping awake will be.
A great list. I took a Grand Canyon Helicopter tour and loved it. Las Vegas is one of my all-time favorite destinations. And Saint George, Utah? Well, my experiences there haven’t been so hot-had car trouble there more than once, but it is part of my backlog of memories and I still look back on the place with fondness.
Mini kettles for travel may be small and compact in size but they still offer all the features a regular home water boiler offers and more. Travel kettles have fill level indicators, boil dry prevention, cool touch outer walls and all the other mod cons you’ll find on regular brands but with the added ability to work on multiple voltages and being smaller, are easier to transport in a suitcase or travel bag.
Travel related articles from previously published writers are bought by this publication. They will pay $400-$800 for articles of 2000 words which are accompanied by photos. These should be travel related to conservation of salmon or somehow related to salmon.
Cost. Almost everything is more expensive in Alaska. Case-in-point, a well known 24 inch sandwich from a common US fastfood chain is $6 instead of $5. But not everything is extremely expensive, since during the tourist season, it is possible to find adventures that are cheaper than others.
