We decided to go to Alaska for the Memorial Day weekend partly to visit the place before the crowds and mosquitoes begin to swarm the place, but mostly because once the idea hit my head, I couldn’t wait to go there. As usual, I visited all the travel websites on Alaska, read every single book I could lay my hands on, and talked to all my acquaintances that had been there before. I planned the trip to the last detail. None of that helped in the end, because we canceled some plans, made new ones and still ended up having a fantastic time. Here is the trip map.
I sent this travelogue to Lakshmi a month ago to post on their blog. It just got published there, so this elaborate setup is to direct you to the Club Mahindra blog to read about the first leg of our trip.
