Cruising Alaska has always been on my bucketlist, so when I was given the opportunity to sail on the Seabourn Sojourn for the 14-Day Ultimate Alaska Glacier and Fjord Adventure in late June, I snatched it up. The itinerary took us on a two week journey from Anchorage to Vancouver through some of the best spots in Southeast Alaska, like Tracy Arm and the Misty Fjords. We were able to do excursions such as a helicopter flight up to a dogsledding camp, kayaking up to a glacier with the Ventures by Seabourn team, and taking my very first seaplane flight over the Misty Fjords. I think during the entire time we sailed, we only had two days of rain, so we were very lucky that the good weather followed us all the way to Canada. The whole experience was magical and luxurious.
Last weekend, I had the opportunity to host an Austin Instameet with other local bloggers and Chase Sapphire in celebration of their new Sapphire Six Guide to Austin. The Sapphire Six Guide takes cues from where Sapphire Reserve cardmembers are visiting, grabbing a bite, enjoying a drink or just having fun to determine where the best spots in Austin. For the Instameet, our goal was to work our way down South Congress, hitting up some of the most Instagrammable spots and finish at Cafe No Se (one of the recommended restaurants on the Sapphire Six Guide).
