To help plan for trips and vacations, I’ve been using TripAdvisor more and more. This service provides great user-contributed reviews and suggests local activities. After a great experience fishing with Captain Jerry of AAA Sportfishing Co in Ketchikan, Alaska, I had to provide a review. Here’s my very first TripAdvisor review – “Changed my view […]
Contributing a short Yelp review for the non-Starbucks in Skagway, Alaska. So while this non-Starbucks cafe serves Starbucks, touring Skagway with a hot cup of coffee is just more fun. 🙂 Read my Yelp review for the non-Starbucks in Skagway, AK. More coffee experiences captured in Coffee While Cruising – Part 1, Part 2, Part […]
Here are some of the foodie pics taken when vacationing in Fresno, Vancouver, Alaska, and on-board the Disney Wonder. Sorry, I didn’t add any descriptions of the pics. I’ll let the food speak for themselves. Do I need to say that I didn’t go hungry with this vacation diet? The best food while at sea […]
Setting the stage for Part 3 of Coffee While Cruising is easy – chilly Alaskan weather, event-filled days, and the lax diet of vacation. Perfect conditions for an absolute coffee fest!

The first installment of Coffee While Cruising covered the early FAT leg of my vacation. Like I mentioned before, from FAT we headed to YVR in Vancouver, Canada. Before the trip, I learned of a Starbucks Clover location on Robson Street. Oh, and I managed to get a Groupon for Starbucks Canada. Bonus! What did […]
While going on vacation typically means new experiences, it doesn’t necessarily mean old habits are forgotten, such as getting a healthy intake of coffee. The only real way to start time off is with good coffee and good kicks. That means a cup of Kati Kati Blend from Starbucks while wearing (gasp!) New Balance MO673. […]
Back from vacation checking out Vancouver and cruising to Alaska onboard the Disney Wonder.
Bravo to @abaggy for successfully completing his scavenger hunt while cruising Alaska! I posed nine challenges and two bonuses, and here are his results. Dessert. @abaggy excelled in this category! Love this one. A scenic view. This was a gimme on a cruise through Alaska. This pic is cool. Shipboard entertainment. Only diehards sit poolside […]
