The journey to Alaska just came over me. Actually I wanted to remain on the european continent for the first time in years and to undertake a cosy trip to Norway or to Iceland. But I had not counted on a mail from my old australian buddy Ansgar.
At the beginning of April I was informed by Ansgar that he would make a tour in Alaska. Curiously as I am, I took one of my travel catalogs from Wikinger and Trails and started reading. After few minutes I learned about bears in the Katmai Nationalpark and a kanutrip on the Yukon, about mountain ranges and glaciers.
It took only these few minutes until it was clear to me that Norway or Iceland would actually have to wait some time. And then I remembered another old friend, Christian, who had spent his honeymoon in Alaska and then I booked the vacation. I will be eternally grateful to Ansgar for his Mail. :-)
