We are giving away 1# of our favorite brewed coffee here in Alaska, Kaladi Brothers Red Goat… It’s a rich, nutty cup full of flavor that warms you up on a cold Alaska morning, and keeps you going through the midnight sun.
Coffee and Alaska go together like Alaska and mountains, or peas and carrots. Seriously, it’s intense. There are many different options here too, statewide and local. Coffee is everywhere! And to celebrate the Alaska’s appreciation of coffee, we’re having an Alaskan coffee giveaway! Read on to find out more… [Read more...]
Welcome to the new face of our little Alaska blog…
When I started this blog in June of 2012, under the name Alaska Travel Journal, I knew I wanted to share great information about Alaska travel in general. One thing I didn’t count on though, was how much the “local perspective” part would grow. We decided to start sharing our family’s experiences here, to the benefit of anyone looking for the “real” Alaska. You know, not just what you read on pamphlets and travel guides, but the Alaska that gets in your soul, the day-to-day Alaska. We want to provide the perspective you can only get living here. I want you to experience a tiny piece of the wonder of this place, so that if you haven’t been here, you’ll come visit. If you have been here, it will either draw you back or reignite all the amazing memories you have from your trip. And, if you live here already, hopefully we can help you experience new and unvisited adventures in Alaska.
So, in brainstorming one day, the name Alaskan Insider came to mind and I fell in love with it (I don’t want to set a precedent here for changing names, so this is it. We’re set for the foreseeable future). The Alaskan Insider… It fits who we are, where we are and where we’re going.
Welcome to The Alaskan Insider. All of our current content will continue to be live on www.alaska-travel-journal.com until forwarded to The Alaskan Insider so that you can still enjoy all the great articles, tips and experiences available up here in Alaska.
We will be changing our name across the board, including on Facebook and Pinterest (don’t worry, you won’t have to re-follow or like us, we’ll just be changing our name, not starting new pages). Speaking of Facebook, if you haven’t “Liked Us” yet, you might want to do that as we’re going to be hosting our first giveaway next week. It’s also a great place to experience more of the day to day goings on in Alaska, and to engage in the growing community of people in love with the Great Land.
Hatcher Pass is one of my favorite spots in Alaska! It’s beautiful year-round, and I absolutely love it. Plus, it’s only 15 miles from our house. You can’t beat that.
I love Hatcher Pass! It’s one of my favorite places to go in AK, by far. And it’s so close to our home, it’s almost always convenient to head up into there. [Read more...]
This was really one of the coolest things I’ve done in Alaska. I totally loved every second of this trip (even though I got a little nauseous). Also for a little background, this was an amazing trip not just for myself and the awe-inspiring views, but for my grandpa.
