FOWChallenge-Bargain

~~~~~

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.

Blue…my favourite colour.

Whether it is the blue skies of

Far North Queensland, or…

…flying into the Alaskan wild blue yonder

in our blue plane.

Blues and yellows from all over.

This was new to me.

I was unaware we had coast guard boats, as such,

let alone yellow ones.

 

Air Arctic at Coldfoot airport.

A local tourist train.

Fairbanks airport I think.

My favourite form this set.

Loved the song or The Beatles.

Not so  sure now though.

adventure
noun
an unusual and exciting, typically hazardous, experience or activity.

This was the start of our…

adventure to Wiseman, Alaska.


We flew over the wilds of Alaska…


…prior to landing at Coldfoot.

From Coldfoot it was a relatively short

coach ride to Wiseman.

 

A small town 63 miles North  of the Arctic Circle. 

Certainly and adventure and as far North

as we have ever been on our planet.

Just had to have a photo taken at Forty Degrees below Zero.

The cold penetrated denim very easily and

I am constantly reminded that the

temperature gauge is not showing 40 below! 🙂

Considering anything below ten degrees Celsius

is shiver time during winter

a few minutes in there was enough.

Seasonal challenges are another which are

often difficult if hosted in the northern hemisphere. 

However this time I do have

some summer time photos.

After leaving a chilly Australia in early June

we were surprised how warm it was in Alaska. 

Appears these Alaskan Huskies agreed with us.

They certainly enjoyed their dip

in the Chena River (Fairbanks)

after demonstrating their skills working as a team.
