- After getting my first passport in 2006 and traveling to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania my life changed. I began the process of getting rid of all my possessions and traveling the world. Traveling to over 100 countries and all 7 continents, hostels have been my home. This "new life" has taught me what is important and it was NOT accumulating money or possessions. Traveling is the best education. I hope my blog will encourage others to travel. My World Tattoo was a way for me to express my PASSION FOR TRAVEL.
Juneau ferry to Haines, Alaska
Incredible day. 1 hr before arriving at Juneau I saw a humback whale breach (leap halfway out of water) right in front of me. Luckily I was at the front of the ferry taking pictures when it breached. I got a good picture which I will post as soon as possible. The ship actually had to swerve to keep from hitting the whale. Arrived at Juneau port which is actually 14 miles outside Juneau at 1:30 pm. Then bought ticket to Haines and continued on the Inside Passage at 3 pm. Arrived at Haines at 7:30 pm and hostel owner forgot to pick us up. We called him and he apologized for the misunderstanding. Stayed 2 nights in Haines and it is very beautiful though not much to do. Met nice girl from the Netherlands, Claire, who continued on to Skagway on the fast ferry with us 2 days later.
