Is Alaska on your bucket list? Mine too! And that’s why I am beyond thrilled to be hosting a special once-in-a-lifetime “Alaskan Bucket List Adventure Cruise”.
ARE YOU COMING WITH ME?
If you have ever dreamed of hiking on a glacier, going whale watching while on a kayak or landing on a lake in a seaplane, then this trip is for you. Even if you are just looking for a little push to step out of your comfort zone and to be surrounded by like-minded people, then join me for 7-nights aboard Celebrity Cruises lovely Solstice ship from September 7th – 14th, 2018 (more details and book here).
Beginning and ending in Seattle, this cruise will take you to to 4 unforgettable ports where remarkable nature and wildlife surrounds you. Opt to take a seaplane tour in Ketchikan, walk on a glacier in Juneau, take a speedboat in Skagway or visit the famed Butchart Gardens in Victoria, and go whale watching just about everywhere!

Plus, I have some great plans in store for the guests of Bucket List Journey, including an exclusive welcome reception, informative Q&A sessions, fun bucket list challenges, a book signing (attendees will get a complimentary copy of my book Bucket List Adventures), a “Create Your Bucket List Workshop” and plenty of optional excursions that you are welcome to join me on!
