8. Anchorage, Alaska

Why visit Alaska during its cold winter months where you can barely walk around outside?  Alaska need to be visited in the summer where you will be surrounded by vast forests and mountain ranges, dramatic glaciers and see an abundance of wildlife from humpback whales to grizzly bears.

    Amalfi Coast is AMAZING! We went to the town of Positano on the coast this Spring before tourist season and we got to see everyone painting new storefronts, and bringing out new inventory, and preparing for the blossoms to bloom. We got to meet the locals, drink the wine, and hunt for sea glass.

    1) Please do a Lemoncello Shot! It’s amazing!
    2) Eat at the restaurant On the beach. Best pizza we had in Italy.
    3) Local wine or bust.
    4) TAKE DRAMAMINE before you make the drive in. There is ONE road and it’s a doozy. Winding all the way around the coast, it makes for beautiful views if you aren’t about to toss your lunch.
