Alaskan Adventure: Day 1// Travel

Alaskan Adventure: Day 1// Travel

Hi all!

Sorry for the lack of posts this past week! As some of you may know, I was at our Alaskan home for the past two weeks.

And I am excited to share that I created some videos for you all! Today marks the first video of my little series. This was my first attempt at vlogging, or even making a youtube video in general. Vlogging is something that takes time to get a hang of, but I think I did an okay job. Considering it was my first time.

Vlogs and youtube videos in general are fun because if allow you all to see more of my personality, and you will soon learn that I can be a weird individual! hahaha, no shame!

Anyways, here is my FIRST vlog of my Alaskan Adventure series! This video is probably the most boring out of the bunch because it was our first day and most of that day was spent traveling. But stay tuned till Wednesday when I’ll post the second video from my mini series!

Video was filmed with a gopro.


Getting Ready for Alaska

Getting Ready for Alaska

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.

Can’t wait!

The Many Wonders of Mick the Cat

The Many Wonders of Mick the Cat

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.

This is his favorite way to lay. We find him like this all the time haha

Check out a previous post here when we took him for a walk in Alaska!

Traveling by a Float Plane

Traveling by a Float Plane

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 🙂20140728-151343-54823795.jpg



As you can see the weather was not the best. But the past couple weeks have been amazing! Can’t wait till next year
