You simply can’t visit Montana without exploring Glacier National Park!

From Donna:

And we’re back! Montana greeted us with mild temperatures and sunny skies—perfect weather for a weekend hike. Hopefully, we’ll see wildflowers.

And an Alaska cruise travel tip: If you’re disembarking in Vancouver and flying home the same day, don’t rely on a taxi to take you to the airport. Seabourn Sojourn was one of 4 ships disembarking when we ended our cruise in Vancouver. That’s a lot of people looking for taxis at the same time. And it could have been worse if one of the mega ships had been in port. Alan and I purchased seats on the bus to the airport provided by Seabourn. Booking private transportation is another option.

From Nicole:
