Mala,Andrew and Malisha
As a short introduction, me (Andrew) and my family live in Sydney Australia. This is our trip to Canada and Alaska. For 9 months me and Mala spent hours and hours every night after work to organise every single step of our pre-planned trip overseas.
Our trip to Alaska is not the normal Alaska cruise. We wanted to travel around the way we had travelled on our previous adventures. We love to visit remote places, meet people and eat their local food. So we decided to fly over to Vancouver and start our land trip from there. The plan is to drive from Vancouver to Anchorage and back.
We left Sydney on July 3. Our plane trip was very tiring and we spent nearly 14 hours in the plane. On the positive side, Air Canada flight was very good. We landed in Vancouver earlier than the time we left Sydney because we gained 17 hours. We hired a seven sitter from AVIS and got a very good deal. We were given a white Ford Expeditiion, a brand new SUV, just come out of the factory. It has lots of new features including a built in Navigator, a reverse parking camera. It is the ideal vehicle to do our long and tedious trip.
We came out of the airport and drove straight from Vancouver to Kamloop.
