“because he had no place he could stay in without getting tired of it and because there was nowhere to go but everywhere, keep rolling under the stars…”
~ Jack Kerouac
In a weeks time I’ll be a married lady and heading on an amazing adventure to Alaska with my new husband. To most, Alaska might be an odd honeymoon destination but my big sister lives in Haines with her adorable family, the newest addition being one week old baby Leon. I cannot wait to be surrounded by them and surrounded by Alaska’s beautiful landscape and wildlife.
I have visited before. I traveled the three days from Scotland as a surprise, calling the only taxi driver in town as I arrived in the mail plane and we drove around looking for a familiar house. I had seen a photograph but didn’t have the address. We ate cherry pie, the freshest fish, walked beautiful beaches, drank Brandy Alexanders and laughed. A lot.
My surprise arrival made the local paper. It was a pretty great adventure.
I can’t wait to return with my husband by my side.
