Ah, a free evening to catch up on my blog! I’ve done a bit of traveling in the past few weeks, so I’ll start with Alaska. Hey – I went to Alaska! Chris and I took a cruise on Holland America’s MS Rotterdam for a well-deserved vacation. It even had elements of adventure! We had a fantastic time – the weather was mostly craptastic, but it was still completely beautiful and we were prepared with the proper attire, so no big deal. We saw amazing scenery and lots of wildlife including whales (from our stateroom window!), sea otters, sea lions, harbor seals, puffins, bald eagles, jellyfish, and even a bear. Woo hoo! Chris and I took a ton of pictures, which you can view here. I’ll include a few pics in this post, but they’re just the highlights, of which there were too many to describe in detail here. Chris and I can’t wait for our next trip together…which we’re already thinking about. The Galapagos Islands, perhaps???
