Travelogue: Alaska Cruise Part 03

Alaskan Cruise, Glacier Bay National Park / Jennifer Chong Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska While you can explore all parts of Alaska on your own, in my mind, our one day experience cruising with Princess Cruises is worth booking a second cruise alone. Glacier Bay National Park is one of the highlights of the Alaska Inside Passage route. It’s a world heritage site and one of the largest international protected areas. Initially I was a little apprehensive that a day at sea would be boring, but it

Travelogue: Alaska Cruise Part 02

Alaska Cruise - Travelogue / See and Savour Skagway, Alaska Skagway was one of our favorite port cities to visit. The morning was foggy but dry, and the weather cleared up just in time for our helicopter ride. The helicopter ride was about 20 minutes, but it passed by in a blink of an eye, so be sure you don’t get caught up in taking photos that you don’t enjoy the moment.

Travelogue: St. George, Utah

Visiting Snow Canyon in St. George Utah / See and Savour Last month my friend T and I headed to Utah for an Instameet with Visit St. George.

Travelogue: Ha Long Bay, Vietnam

Hong Kong City Guide / See and Savour Back in December, I had the pleasure of visiting Hong Kong with Cathay Pacific and Passion Passport.
