    Travel movie Alaska

    As some of you may know, Martijn spent the majority of July guiding in Alaska. Each day he posted a short movie on his Facebook page, which he has now made a longer movie of.

    Cook Inlet Photo Safari with Alaska Photo Treks

    It all started a couple of years ago when I got the chance to visit Alaska in wintertime. If you haven’t been on our website before, let me tell you that Alaska has a special place in my heart.

While on this trip, she took the below amazing picture of me and I knew straight away she’s a talented photographer. Over…
