As some of you may know, I have lived in Alaska for a few years and return every summer! This summer I have decided to document my trip using my SnapChat!
I have made my snapchat public and plan on posting videos throughout my whole trip, showing just what it is like to live in Alaska, I may also vlog a bit on the trip to post on Youtube, for those who are not big into Snapchat.
That being said, I just wanted to remind you all of my social media links, in case you are interested in following along on my trip to Alaska! I will be leaving next weekend, the 2nd and will be gone for two weeks! So there will be plenty of video footage and I cant wait to share it all with you!
All of my social media links are at the top of the page as well as the sidebar. But just incase the links do not work, you can find me on any social media platform if you type in aroonmelane.

We found our cat 10 years ago abandoned by his mother along side his little sister who we put up for adoption. My family and I raised him from a bottle into the large 27 pound cat he is today. We are not 100% sure of his breed, since we never found his parents, but we assume he is mixed mainecoon, that’s the only reason we could think he would be so huge.
He is such a smart cat! He sits and lays on command, he comes and stays and he is the biggest sweetheart.
Some cats have the habit of hiding under furniture and running away when visitors come, but he is the complete opposite.
Check out a previous post here when we took him for a walk in Alaska!
Today is unfortunately my last day in Alaska, this time tomorrow I’ll be back home in Florida!
But first we had to get out of our secluded little town, and the only way to do that is by boat or float plane. This time we opted for the float plane!
Float planes are fun and different but not when it’s windy and you experience turbulence the whole time.
Any day but today would have been a perfect day for a float plane, but we were not that lucky with the weather. Anyways, I snapped a few photos in the plane while trying not to get sick. Ha 🙂
As you can see the weather was not the best. But the past couple weeks have been amazing! Can’t wait till next year
Any fellow Alaskan will know the brand XTRATUF, as it is owned by nearly every person I have come across while living in Alaska. Alaska is a bit tougher then most states in the US, and your standard “yellow rain boots” just won’t cut it. With all the slippery, tough rocks and rugged landscape, not many other boots would last long.
When living in Alaska, mostly Southeast Alaska, rain becomes a very familiar thing. One year while living in Ketchikan, we experienced 355 days of rain, leaving only ten days of the year where there was no rain.
And on rainy days like today, the XTRATUF is an “extra” good friend.
As you may be able to tell, our rain boots are put to good use
Today was yet another beautiful day out, therefore we decided it was time to take our 10 year old, 27 pound maine coon mix out for a walk.
It takes him a little while to get going and he can not go too far without getting exhausted. But he is too funny when we take him on walks. He usually walks a ways behind us checking every little thing and stopping at the sound of a branch cracking. But once we get too far away from him he begins to howl until he feels like we are a safe distance from him. I wanted to get close to him when he was howling, so I hid behind a tree as he walked by, calling out to my parents who were too far away for his comfort.
