Travel Blogs from Anchorage
The 1st thing on landing in a new place, is to ensure the transportation - and ours was reserved at Thrifty. But with all the change in flights and the time, the reservation we made for pickup at 11pm expired when we reached the desk at 1:05am! 5min made all the difference! And the rep at the desk wasnt …
... windsurfers playing around near Beluga Point (so called because it was from here that locals used to come to look for the Beluga whales to catch).
