I recently visited Alaska and what I found is that it was a feast for the eyes and the soul. With longer daylight hours, I fought off sleep for fear of missing the spectacular vistas. However, it was such a relaxing atmosphere it was incredibly hard to prevent the falling of my eyelids.
I’m not sure if it was the cooler temperatures, the amazing mountain views, the activities or all the yummy food I was ingesting, but I slept like a baby. The surroundings were so stunning that I could have sworn it was fake. That might be the Disney-ite in me, but me (and my camera) could not get enough of the snow-capped mountains.
It was a trip a long time in the making for me and my family, but with the busy life I was leading, I never had the proper time to plan or get overly excited about it until it was upon me. This is the EXACT reason I have made the changes in my life…to stop and enjoy the moment in time, to live life rather than watching it pass me by.
I could not have asked for more! It was a time to unwind from the stresses of daily life and reconnect with my family. I actually had the time to read a book and delight in an afternoon nap. It was a time of rejuvenation and indulgence.
Alaska did not disappoint in its incredible scenery, crisp air, sunshine and new experiences. It has left me wanting more, so I know I’m on the right track in my path of life. Like the wingspan of the mighty eagle, I welcome with open arms what life brings my way.
And if that happens to be another trip to Alaska (with my family) I’ll take it again any day…as long as there is running water. 🙂
