If there’s one thing I’m truly proud of with this blog, it’s how many people use it to research, plan, and go on the once-in-a-lifetime Alaska trip they’ve always dreamed of. Little did I know that growing up in Alaska would eventually allow me to reach hundreds of thousands of people each year to share my local Alaska travel knowledge.
Back when I lived in Alaska, I spent three summers working for a major cruise line, and this only added to my knowledge of how Alaska travel planning works – or should work! I took the lessons from that time in my (meandering) career and added it to all the secret spots and tricks I had learned exploring The Last Frontier with my family and started writing about how to travel to Alaska. Over the years since I started this blog, that list of resources has become quite extensive!
