The flights from Kansas to Alaska are between 9 and 11 hours long, and many of the flights leaving Alaska are red eyes. I have a terrible time sleeping on planes, so I got a lot of reading done! See? Whoop, whoop.
We got out there, and the view was immediately incredible. The mountains, the glaciers, the clouds.
We spent the first few days in Alaska exploring Anchorage (& the full work week), don't judge... this is mostly food! :) bahah
Anchorage was cultural, decorated, and scenic. The food was amazing (& expensive!), the street art was beautiful, and the people were so friendly. It was a pretty small city downtown, I feel like we saw most of it in a day. If we go back for work or something else someday I would want to check out a few places outside of the downtown area and more of the museums and restaurants.
Eat: Fat Ptarmigan, Humpy's Ale House, The Kobuk Cafe (donuts, coffee, baked goods, etc.), Snow Goose Restaurant, Glacier Brewhouse, Snow City Cafe, M.A.'s Reindeer Dog Cart.
See: Street Art, Lovely Parks, View from The Tony Knowles Coastal Trail.
