I had to think laterally this week.
I love this display of cups in an
Illy Coffee Shop
Cylinder recordings on display
in a Fairbanks restaurant.
Another hanging cup/light
in Ketchikan, Alaska.
A Geelong store display supporting
the local Australian Rules football team
…we had completed our flight to Coldfoot (Alaska)…
…visited Wiseman, inside the Arctic Circle…
…and were preparing for our journey home to Australia.
After all the preparation and organising,
our vacation was over.
For last year’s visit to Canada and Alaska we
flew with Air Canada on a 2 for 1 deal.
Because we only stepped onto
an Air Canada flight in Brisbane
I initially thought the 2 for 1 deal
referred to the Brisbane – Vancouver leg.
While speaking to the travel company
I learned that the 2 for 1 deal applied to all flight sectors.
So we flew from Melbourne to Brisbane,
Brisbane to Vancouver,
Vancouver to Victoria and
from Fairbanks to Vancouver
then all the way home to Melbourne…
for what seemed the bargain price of $2,000.
I was expecting that per person.
Thank you Air Canada.
The only flight we had to pay for was
our Air Arctic flight to Coldfoot.
In early April
Temperatures have not improved
as we head into winter.
This time last year we were preparing
for a Canadian/Alaskan June.
The weather was beautiful.
Even falling snow on the Columbia Icefields
did not dampen our spirits.
