Alaska video montage

Apr 10, 2013 | 0 comments

I’ve only been home a week and a half, but already Alaska seems almost as distant in memory as it is in miles. I’ll be totally honest, as great as it was to experience a “real” Alaska winter in one of the harshest environments on earth, it feels damn good to be able to just walk out my door barefoot now that I’m back in Florida. No more spending 10 minutes to put on enough layers to step outside. I’ve even started to get a tan again (currently in the form of sunburn, but hey).

It wasn’t quite as hard to adjust to living in “civilization” again as I thought it would be. It’s nice to see affordable prices in the stores once more, and have more choices in products. The harder part has been getting used to living at home after being on my own for so long. I miss that freedom already, but I keep telling myself it’s only temporary. Because I know it is. Hopefully within the next month I’ll be on my way to a new job, whatever it may be (fingers crossed that it will be in Alaska again).

I hate this period of limbo where I have no idea what I’m doing with my life. But in between job-searching and car-searching and freaking out about the future, I’ve managed to finish putting together my video montages of all 9 months in Alaska. Just watching them over again gives me the travel bug, so maybe it’ll inspire you to get out on your own adventures as well. 🙂  Enjoy.
