I’ve put two new articles online since the last newsletter – the first about a unique ferry trip and the other about a slim book that’s simply bursting with island experiences.
Cruising the Alaska Marine Highway
Visit the Alexander Archipelago onboard the Alaska Marine Highway System for a blue-collar cruise that won’t break the bank!
25 Ultimate Island Experiences
What do you get when you pack 25 island essays and 25 island trivia topics into a book about the size of a 0.1 inch thick postcard? You get a snack-size taste of island travel that will have you booking a flight to order up the full entree for yourself!
IslandTravel.bellaonline.com has lots of other great content about Island Travel – from book reviews (castles in the British Isles anyone?) to family-friendly fun (Island Adventure) to planning and remembering the journey (with a journal, of course!).
If you’d like to participate in free, fun online discussion, this site also has a community forum all about Island Travel located here -
There’s a forum thread on the site linked to relevant island topics where you can voice your opinion. Join in and let me know about a good book to review, ideas on where I should fly with a family set of free tickets, or start a new thread on any island topic that strikes your fancy!
I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. As always, if you have ideas about article features you’d like to see on this site, a favourite island fair or festival to share, or anything else related to island travel, just let me know!
And finally, if you know of someone who loves islands and travel, please feel free to pass on this message.
