If you want to implement a night for you, but you’re not sure what to do, start by making a list of possible options. Start with a list of 10 and continue adding.
After our 2 days in Seward, Teddy and I headed to the Soldotna/Kenai area for our next adventure. This is the one thing Teddy had on his “must do” list for our trip. I wasn’t sure if we’d be able to make it happen, but the weather cooperated and Teddy (and I) had the experience of a lifetime.
We woke up early and checked out and drove an hour to Seward. We booked a boat tour that would take us through Kenai Fjords National Park which began around 10 am. We booked the tour that ended with dinner on Fox Island. The entire tour was about 8.5 hours and I’d definitely do it again if I went back. We got to see so much sea life and a tidewater glacier!
After 5 days in Palmer and our wedding on a glacier, we set out on our 10 Day Honeymoon Road Trip through Alaska. But, it didn’t start off as we planned. I began to experience symptoms of minor altitude sickness the day after our ceremony, which happened to be the day we began driving north toward Denali. In addition, the allergies I had from Pennsylvania got worse, and now looking back I realize became bronchitis. I felt like crap, but we were determined to make the best of our time in the Last Frontier. We stocked up on medicine and fluids for me, and began our drive north from Palmer to Denali.
When planning our wedding and honeymoon in Alaska, Teddy and I planned to spend 5 days in the Palmer area. The main reason for this is that it was close to where we’d depart from for our wedding on a glacier, but also because of it’s central location to so many things to do.
During our time in Palmer, we were able to do a good bit of exploring. Based on what we did and what we wish we would have had time for, I put together a 5 day itinerary for your time in the area.
When most people thing of destination weddings, they think of a beach somewhere. For us, we wanted somewhere with mountains.
The states we leaned most toward were Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado. We’ve never been to Colorado together before but the Maroon Bells for a wedding looked beautiful. We briefly considered Glacier National Park and the Tetons, but decided we’d rather go somewhere we hadn’t been and that would be the experience of a lifetime.
Some people love surprises. I don’t happen to be one of those people.
Over the next few weeks and months, I plan to share more about our choice to get married in Alaska as well as what we did there, what we loved, what we would pass on in the future, and our tips for you if you decide to visit.
So to start, let me answer a few of the main questions we got about our wedding during our engagement…
In April I took my first solo trip in a over two years. I wasn’t sure exactly where I wanted…
