Out Of Alaska

August 28, 2011

Now if you have been following our blog you will know that we haven’t had the greatest weather. Well Alaska is like a girlfriend that you’ve dumped who dresses up to the nines and goes out knowing you’ll see her looking great and make you jealous. As we make our way towards Canada again the sun shines, we see a sunset and even the tops of mountains. If it had been like that all along we would never have wanted to leave !

We drove across the Tok Cutoff to reach the Alaska Highway and then headed South to Haines Junction with the intention of getting to Haines (back into Alaska). But it was not to be.

    Stunning photos. Strangely (but partly inspired by my grandmother), I’ve always wanted to visit Alaska. It’s pretty high up on the travel to-do list. I have to go within the next 2 years or so.
    Your trip looks like quite the adventure. Bon Voyage!

      The bottom two are actually taken on my land, and home. It is a true piece of heaven!

    Mark, I’ve just found your blog, and I have to say that this is awesome. I am so blown away by what you are both trying to do. I am seriously thinking of setting up a “just giving” site to subscribe dosh to your mammoth undertaking to make sure that you have a fund to call on in the event of catastrophe , such as this. What would you both have done if this was in non-English speaking climes, and how would it have gone? You’ve been blessed with kind fellow travellers so far, but can we help? Lesley ( HUK, remember!)

      Hi Lesley,

      Glad you are all enjoying the blog.

      These things are sent to try us but we’ll get through all the problems and there are plus sides to getting stuck somewhere too. We’ve ended up meeting some amazing people and really learning more about the places we’ve been from a local perspective.

      The learning Spanish is going VERY slowly but we hope to do a course in Guatemala when we get down there. But you’re right things would be a lot harder in a different language.

      Give my best to all at Hachette.
