Last month I began making travel plans to visit one of my brothers who lives in Alaska. The Mister and I will be heading to Anchorage and road tripping it with my brother around a bit, ending in Fairbanks, where he lives.

I can’t wait to explore Alaska, see the wild life, scenery and catch up. It will also be crazy since there will be almost 24 hours of daylight when we go at the end of May.

Now the real task is packing! Since the weather could be in the 70s or 40s, it will be all about layers, comfort and a little bit of cute. Not to mention a sleep mask for those weird, light nights!

So here’s what I’ll be packing (or something similar) for our early Summer trip:

What to pack for a Spring Alaska Trip

> Patagonia Better Sweater since it’s all about layers, $139.

Sunglasses for those, hopefully, sunny days, $14.99.

> Penfield long Rain Jacket, $150.

> Foxy Tee, $42.99.

> Prana Jeans (stretchy, skinny – but not too skinny, and cute). Great for exploring Denali National Park, $79.

> Comfy, Waterproof, Sturdy Shoes, $99.

Sleep Mask for all that daylight, $19.99.

> Cross body Camera Bag & Satchel, $329.

I’ll share the itinerary and all about the trip once we’re back. Can’t wait!

Happy Friday,

I may have mentioned it in a previous post but I’ll say it again, I have a bit of a crush on the travel company, Black Tomato.

BlackTomato | Set Jetting TV Inspired Vacations

What have they done to earn such esteem in my heart? This time it’s their themed trips ‘Set Jetting‘ where you can galavant off on a trip based on your favorite TV show – if it happens to be Game of Thrones, The Bridge (I don’t know this show, do you?), Downton Abbey, Mad Men, Lost or Breaking Bad.

Personally, I’d choose Downton Abbey – tour Highclere Castle, visit Oxfordshire, the Cotswolds and London. And tea! And cake! And clay pigeon shooting! Ok, I’m getting carried away. But it is right up my alley. Read more about the itinerary (and the others).

I also wouldn’t mind a trip to Croatia and Iceland, though I haven’t started binge watching Game of Thrones, yet.

Where would you go if you could choose a TV (or movie) themed trip?

Amsterdam | Travel Guide on Flee Fly Flown

Last week I posted about all that we saw and did in Poland during our trip in September. After we’d had our fill of zapiekanki and vodka, we made our way to Amsterdam, one of my favorite cities. There’s always something to be left for next time with so much to do there so here’s a few things that we did, plus a few on the list for the next visit.
