We will keep this post very short (as internet and phone seem to be a real problem here).  Just wanted to let you know that we touched down in Alaska.

Took the ferry from Port Hardy to Prince Rupert – 15 hours on the water (all in Canada).  The Inside Passage was absolutely amazing.  So was the weather – on the first leg.  The boat was full of dutch speaking tourists.  Very enjoyable way to travel I must say.

Spent a day in Prince Rupert, before boarding the ferry to Juneau – 24 hours.  Prince Rupert was ok!  Unfortunately managed to lose my wallet there, so had to spend several hours looking for it, advising the local police and cancelling all our credit cards.  A bit of a bummer not to have credit cards while travelling.  The Alaskan Inside Passage was not too bad either, unfortunately it kind-of rained the whole time.

Currently in Juneau, land of the cruise tourist and yucky shopping.  Saw the amazing Mendenhall Glacier.  Got to go, fire alarm just went off.
