The Countdown has officially started!
One month from today, we shall be at Heathrow, boarding a flight to Vancouver. There, we’ll board the Nieuw Amsterdam for the cruise up the Inside Passage, calling at Juneau, where we have a glacier trip and whale-watching cruise booked, Skagway, where we’ll ride the White Pass Railroad and Ketchikan, which looks interesting and picturesque enough to just walk around and see what we can see.
We’ll have a two nights in Vancouver, before boarding the Rocky Mountaineer train to Banff, then on to Calgary for the flight home.
And, the bad boy in the picture? I snapped him at the Natural History Museum in Oxford, in case we don’t see any bears on the trip. But, I promise not to Photoshop him into the landscape if we don’t!
