Blog-tember Day Nine // North to the Future

Today’s Blog-tember prompt was an easy one! The question is, “If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?” For me, it’s somewhere I want to go back to: Alaska!


Two years ago, my whole family went on a cruise to Alaska for my grandparents’ 50th anniversary. It was so awesome to be there as a family! While we were there, we visited Juneau and Skagway, and we saw the Tracy Arm Fjord. One of my favorite things we were able to do was go on a helicopter ride and land on a glacier. That was definitely a cool experience! 😉

Ever since then, I’ve wanted to go back, see more of the sights, learn more of the history, and do some more exploring further north and inland. It was awesome to see Alaska from the water, but I would love to be able to spend a few weeks driving around, visiting small towns and seeing more of what life is like. I’ve even thought about seeing if I could get a summer job at a national park there.


There’s just something the idea of Alaska that I love. I love the uniqueness of the weather, the culture, and the history. I love the spirit of Alaska; the spirit of adventure, courage, and resilience. It’s a beautiful state, and I love that I got to experience a taste of it with my family. I would go back in a heartbeat if I ever had a chance!

What’s your dream place to visit?

  1. I’ve been dying to get to Alaska, too! I have been trying to convince my husband that going on an Alaskan cruise is a good idea. I was also secretly hoping we might get stationed there.
