{travel} Alaska - a day at sea and a formal night.

I haven't been keeping up with my travel posts, Alaska edition!

The first day on the cruise ship was a day at sea. I spent much of my time exploring the ship, catching up with my cousins, aunts, and uncles, and trying to not think about how seasick I felt! We were completely in open water since we had to travel all the way from Seattle to Glacier Bay!

[1] Nikki and I totally got ripped off on those drinks! Apparently the cup was a souvenir. 13 dollars later...
[2] My cousin Lauren & I walking the deck. It was a bit cold out on the open water.

[2] My fabulous parents & I. I'm kind of tall if you haven't noticed yet. 5'8" barefoot, >6' in heels!

Nikki and I drank lots of wine with dinner...
...and then I proceeded to act completely ridiculous.

Although it seemed like the day was never going to end (time out in the middle of the sea seems to go sooo slowly), I'm glad that we were able to get our bearings and relax before the excitement of the port stops.

Coming up soon is a cooking class, a day by the glaciers, a whale watching experience, and a zipline adventure. :)

Have you ever been to Alaska?


  1. Wow!! Adding Alaska to my list of places to visit for sure. And yay for being tall! I'm somewhere between 5'9"-5"10 barefoot--I'm basically a giant in heels, but of course that doesn't stop me from wearing them! :)

  2. You are so lucky to have been to Alaska! This trip looks like so much fun. I cannot wait to hear all about the rest of it! :)

  3. @Erin - I feel that I can always see above the crowd whenever I wear my heels out to the bars. I think guys in Tallahassee are really short though.. ha.
    @Jenna - It is so beautiful! I have had the privilege of going twice. Looove it so much!

  4. yes, lucky indeed that your parents got you started on traveling early on..Took a minute to look around and u have a really nice blog :-) I added you thru Google Connect, maybe we can follow each other? Glad to have found your site!
