Alaska is such a big state! To get to the heart of it - Anchorage - we took an early taxi yesterday to Sea-Tac airport to catch a 10 am Alaska Airlines flight. The flight took around 3 hours 40 minutes. We are booked into the Embassy Suites, Anchorage for 2 nights. The hotel is in Midtown Anchorage, but there is a free airport shuttle Downtown, so exploring is easy.
Comfortable rooms, not far from shops and restaurants - we had to go to nearby Walmart to get some teabags so we could have a cup of tea though!

We start our big trip to Alaska in less than a month now. I always really love the planning and looking forward bit of a trip though.
