To say my trip to Alaska was amazing (read: a-mah-zing) would be a major understatement. My time in (just a tiny portion of) the state was incredible -- from the people I met to all that I learned and experienced -- I am so glad that I accepted the invitation to travel there. However, the one downside of traveling to Alaska (from a small town in Northern Wisconsin) is that it takes five flights to get from Point A to Point B. And though I'm leaving on Wednesday, I won't arrive back in to 'sconi until late in the morning on Thursday. But, that's definitely a small price to pay for a trip of a lifetime. I'd say "once in a lifetime," but there's no doubt that I'll return to Alaska someday.
