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.
