Summer Break Day 10: Anchorage to Calgary
Our last day of our tour today and we traveled back to Talkeetna for a quick rest stop. A funny little town where we wandered to have something to eat and looked at the local handicrafts. The place reminded me a bit of Nimbin - as did the townsfolk. From here we boarded a train to travel back to Anchorage. The train was amazing!! A glass dome enclosed us so we had awesome views for our travel. Heaps of leg room and champagne made the end of our trip so worthwhile. A magical dinner and the ambience of the train made me miss home and being able to share this experience with our friends and family. It was so special to be able to share the experience with Frank and Helen - definately a time that I know they will cherish with the boys and vise versa. Unfortunately our train trip had to come to an end back in Anchorage and we took the opportunity to enjoy a twilight walk around the streets. Some beautiful aspects but so small for a city. Back to Calgary tomorrow where I am excited to see Dad.
