Happy BirthdaySeptember 6, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C
Since we settled in Vancouver, Brenda and I have talked about taking an Alaskan cruise. For whatever reason, we just never got around to it.
For her birthday this year, I decided I would offer to take Brenda on that much discussed voyage.
Although her birthday is in May, we had already been away from Vancouver for a good part of 2019, so we planned to set sail sometime in the late summer. We began scouring the travel websites for the best deals and most appealing offers, but we just couldn't seem to find anything that met our criteria. And then one day Brenda came to me with a "sorta" Alaskan cruise. On September 6 the ship sets sail for Sitka, Alaska, makes a brief stop there and then heads across the Bering sea to Japan. For a 15 day cruise with several perks thrown in, the price was unbeatable and we jumped on the offer.
And that, folks, is how we ended up in Tokyo on an Alaskan cruise.Read more
