About Me

My photo
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 110 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.

ALASKA, Denali Park bus to Wonder Lake


Took the 11 hour bus shuttle to Wonder Lake. Saw lots of grizzlies, a bull moose which is rare, few caribou and some sheep. Cloudy day but not cold like the other day. Did not get to see Denali (Mount McKinley) due to cloud cover. Only 3 out of 10 visitors EVER see Denali due to clouds. I may take a summit plane trip tomorrow to due that hopefully. The bus 1 hr before mine saw Denali for about 10 seconds.

ALASKA, Grizzly Bears in Denali National Park


ALASKA, Denali National Park


I took the hostel shuttle to the Park to catch the 9 am shuttle through the park. Unfortunately, everything was booked and we had to take the 10 am shuttle to the Eielson Visitor Center. It was an 8 hr bus ride and we saw grizzly bears, caribou, moose and eagles. Great trip but did not see Denali (Mount Whitney). Denali is only visible about 30% of the time so not too disappointed. Considering a summit airplane flight which is expensive but supposedly you can see climbers attempting to summit Denali. Will hope weather is up for it. Nice park but only has 92 miles of accessible road. Hostel is 14 miles outside the park but has a free shuttle to the park and back.
