Reasons I Need a Job

This post is sponsored by Alaska Denali Tours

As anyone who reads this blog can tell, I love to travel. I particularly enjoy adventures centered around culture and nature. Vacations are more enjoyable when the two are combined.

A few years ago, my family took a cruise to Alaska for my grandfather's birthday. It was definitely cool going fishing in Juneau, canoeing near Skagway, and hiking through Tongass National Forest in Ketchikan. Unfortunately, the cruise only included the Inside Passage, but it whetted my appetite for more Alaska travel.

Now that Jia is a permanent resident and can travel anywhere in the US, I've been thinking of where I'd like to take her. I know she'd enjoy seeing Alaska, and I'd like to see more of it. One of the places I'd like to travel to next time is Denali National Park.

Searching through, I can plan a great trip to Alaska (not just Denali). They have a lot of options that sound really nice. There are so many options on the site that I may have to reconsider convincing Jia to move to Alaska (not an easy task--I've already tried). It's either that or we better start making a lot of money because those trips up north aren't cheap. But at least I now know there are options for us when we decide to travel Alaska.

Having both lived in China and been born and raised in the clean air and relative quiet of Alaska I think I'm qualified to recommend visiting the state as a sort of modern day baths - A place to cleanse the grease and SARs from your soul. It does get a little cold and dark in the winter though.
