The natural beauty of Alaska

Back in June, after Maya's birthday, husband-ji took his parents on an Alaskan cruise. I had already been before as a teenager, and was too tired from the Venice trip to go. I thought it would be a lovely trip for husband-ji to do with his parents, for them to bond together.

The only way to get to Alaska is by cruise from Vancouver. Then you can see Alaska's magnificent coastline and visit all the small historic towns. Alaska cruises are held from late Spring to early Fall, and the best time to go is right in the middle of Summer. My inlaws loved the scenery and the rugged beauty along the coastline. They took the Holland America cruise. My MIL had a difficult time with the food since she is used to having dosa for breakfast, and there was no Indian food on the cruise. Husband-ji said there were tons of NRI Indians on the cruise from the U.S. Overall, they had a lovely vacation and a wonderful time together.

As many of my readers know, I have a background in photography - but I am not the only photographer in the family. Husband-ji is also a fantastic photographer, as you can see...
