Our husbands let us spend so much of their money on diamonds in Skagway, Alaska. They were so well rewarded for their generosity that we renamed it Shagway.

In 2013 I was named Best Travel Writer at the National Travel Industry Awards. And until someone corrects me, I'm claiming to be the youngest cruise editor in the Southern Hemisphere. Editor of Cruise Weekly since 2009, I also contribute to Sydney's Sun Herald newspaper and various travel magazines and websites.

    Talking about Alaska, in Juneau there is the Red Dog Saloon, which is set up like the old saloons with sawdust on the floor, moose heads, photos of old planes, axes, etc. And a piano player who recites:

    “The yellow rose of Texas, she charges fifty bucks …”

    and what she does for a living rhymes with her charge.

    During a bus trip the bus driver points out various houses and one house used to be a bakery downstairs and a brothel upstairs. A sign advertised outside:

    “Hot buns available day and night!”
