a bit of savings and vacation planning

June 19th, 2007 at 03:06 pm

Well today was the health fair--I am still alive and expected to still keep living for a while at least. Sine the blood work up was for fasting values I didnt have breakfast so I was able to save my breakfast money.
We also have two birthdays this week in our department so our supervisor bought lunch. I had brought my luch as I almost always do so there was no real money savings but I was able to save my lunch for tomorrow.
In the past few years I have inadvertantly planned my big vacations for May around my birthday so I decide to make that my vacation time on a regular basis. Most places I have ever wanted to go have good deals and good weather during May so it ends up being a great time to go. LAst year I went to Australia and had a fabulous time. Since I just started my new job in March of this year I really couldnt take any time off in May so this year will have to be a skip year. I did go to Orlando for a long weekend but it wasnt a long relaxing vacation. ANyway, so I am now trying to decide where I will go next May. I have thought of Iceland but the mre I look into it I think even with a good exchange rate it is still rather expensive. So now I am focusing on Alaska. Anybody have any ideas what to see and what can be missed. My list of places I want to go is quite long right now so I need to prioritize. I am hoping to travel around for about two weeks.

    I LOVED Alaska!! I'm not sure what kind of trip you want to take but I can highly recommend an Alaska Inland Passage cruise. Norway is somewhere else I highly recommend. I'm planning a river cruise from Moscow to St. Petersberg next year.

    I really loved Alaska too. Been there twice, neither time was a cruise, though.

    Once, we rented a car in seattle and drive in to anchorage area via the canadian yukon. Kenai peninsula area.

    another time, we flew in to juneau and drove around that area, valdez, homer, etc.

    if you can go in fall i believe when northern lights are visible in the sky, i think that would be cool.

    Denali, of course, is a big attraction.

    Aside from Anchorage, which is a somewehat ugly, sprawling city, everything in AK is beautiful. The natural scenic beauty, wildlife, great hiking, so you really can't go wrong. The people are very, very nice, too. Eat lots of salmon.
