... on some of these rides! we walked to the snow sculpture area that had been large blocks of snow just 7 days ago when we passed them on the train.

The snow blocks now took on the shapes of Darth Vader and other Star Wars characters, a whale, a bear, the Red Bull bull, an animated moose, a Merry Go Round, a cool round structure hollowed out with swirls of windows, and Jesus on the cross, which I agreed with a woman onlooker, ...

... back in the Netherlands since 1949! I was there as a child, after WWII, when my Dad was stationed in Germany. I have wanted to return and now have the chance. Even though I will be traveling alone I am sure that I will never be truly alone!

More later, I have lots to do and not much time! Oh, I borrowed some photos from the internet, just until I have some of my own!

... today? Is there anything we can learn from them? I'll begin by sharing how my own interest in the subject developed and go on from there.

I first learned about the Mayans in 1987 from Jose Arguelles' book The Mayan Factor. It was during the months leading up to the event known as Harmonic Convergence that Arguelles, artist and visionary, introduced me to the 20 Mayan day-signs and the thirteen Mayan numbers - and to the wonderfully engaging and ...

... supplier to take photos! I'll try and get one on this blog but trust me it was an awesome sight and a cracking start to the wildlife epic that Alaska promises to be. Indeed the wildlife treats didn't stop there. Having reboarded the Princess Dougal and I went up onto the deck later in the evening to look at the mountains and glaciers that were being revealed by the gradually clearing mist. The views were just incredible but to make it even more phenomenal ...

    Hotel shuttle quickly picked from Airport. I picked this hotel as i was renting car from downtown next day and this hotel location seemed nice. Room had 2 twin beds. Clean and full of things like TV, Refrigerator, Microwave, Coffee maker etc and a locker. The moving space was less. A nice place to sleep.

    Enjoyed my stay!

    from

    The room was well maintained and housekeeping was also good. I enjoyed my stay.

    We have been ripped off

    from

    The room rate on our VISA account was twice higher than the rate when we checked-in. We have not checked our receipt when we checked-out. We realized that we have been ripped off when we received our VISA statement. We tried to dispute our bill with the hotel staff but they did not return our calls. So, please watch.

    Not a bad place to stay for a motel

    from

    Stay in Days Inn for my first visit to Anchorage, read all the bad reviews about this motel but when I get there, it is not as bad as described. It just like all the other Days Inn motel anywhere in the States. You cannot expect too much for a motel with the price you pay. Room is clean and Staffs are friendly. I would recommend to anyone who need a budget stay and yet a descent place.

    Ughhh! What a dive!

    from

    This Days Inn is really a dive. It's one of the 5 worst places I've ever stayed. At $160 a night during peak season, it easily has the worst dollar/quality ratio I've ever seen. The rooms are dingy. The bed is a sling. There's no AC. There are no screens on the windows. The outside rooms suffer from road noise. The courtyard rooms suffer from noise from folks who don't realize that just because it's light out at 2:30am, doesn't mean you can shout to each other. The only nearby restaurant is a Country Kitchen. But, lucky you, there's a porn store just 2 blocks away. At one point, I checked my bags overnight. Upon my return, they informed me that they couldn't get the door open. I couldn't get my bags until the next morning. The morning I left, the deadbolt had broken on someone elses room. They had to climb out the window it order to leave their room. Good thing they were on the courtyard side.

    Pass on the Days Inn

    from

    One word comes to mind about the Days Inn in Anchorage, Alaska: Seedy. If you don't mind bars on the window, doors that don't lock well, rooms that are scuzzy, shoddy service, and drunks sleeping in the lobby, then stay here. Yuck, Ish, Boo, Hiss, Spat!

    Good Rate - But I didn't feel safe!

    from

    We booked the hotel because the rate was so good. Felt like the place was just dark and creepy - and didn't feel safe coming and going from the hotel. Room was okay, clean.

    Did not have a good stay here

    from

    The outside rooms (facing the street) are noisy. We had one, and we had to ask to move to one of the inside rooms. If you are noise sensitive, I highly recommend you do not stay in one of the rooms with windows on the street.

    The place was just generally too noisy for us. Even aside from the street noise, we heard a lot of noise from the neighbors that was very disrupting to our attempts at sleep.

    Next time we are in Anchorage, we just need to suck it up and pay bigger bucks for nicer accomodations. Our attempts to go cheap in Anchorage have resulted in some pretty unpleasant nights there.

    Loved the location

    from

    This Hotel was the cleanest and had the best hospitality I ever had. the girls at the front desk were very helpful and willing to go the extra mile. I was there for the Fesitivals in march of 2004 and Had the best room there was for the dog sled races...

    Hot and Noisy. Don't consider this hotel!

    from

    After spending only six hours in Anchorage and three of those in our hot, noisy hotel room, we checked out at 11:00 p.m. and flew back home. This hotel has no air conditioning and yes, air-conditioning is sometimes needed even in Alaska. The street noise was unbearable so opening the window was not an option. After moving to an "inside" room, the courtyard noise was just as bad. Many guests had their room door propped open to try to get some cool air. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone, even though Days Inn gives it it's top rating - 5 sunbursts.

    Cheap alternative

    from

    If you're staying in Anchorage during the summer and paying full price for hotels, don't bother with the Days Inn. You might as well stay at the Millennium or the Marriott. Off season the Days Inn has some great rates ($39 once) and it becomes a reasonable place to stay. It's within walking distance to downtown and the mall. The rooms are nothing special but always seem clean. They have improved the lobby area so it looks cozy.
