Alaska

I just got back from one of the best trips back home to Alaska I have ever had! I took my boyfriend on his dream trip to see bears in the wild at Chinitna Bay, we drank beers and hiked on Summer Solstice at 1 am, and we did lots of hiking. Stay tune for all our updates, so you too can have an awesome trip to Alaska.

Munich

Despite being the home of the Oktoberfest, Munich deserves so much more than a 2-week merry making adventure. Compared to the rest of German cities, Munich is a charming a little slice of European paradise. Explore history in the old town, satisfy your inner geek at the many museums, work on your tan at the Isar, cater to your inner party monster at one of the many clubs, take a day trip to explore castles and mountains and of course eat all the pretzels and drink all the beer! Prost!
