Yes, you read that right… it was a staggering -22 deg Celsius at 11.30am. Brrrrr
There wasn’t really an itinerary for our trip… we had a few places we knew we wanted to go to, but didn’t really plan to the finer details. It was more like a “wake up this morning and anyhow point to a location” trip. LOL
Mr Goh was intrigued by the Trans-Alaskan pipeline and so we took a drive to see it. I’m not a guy, nor an engineer, so pipelines do not interest me. Period.
While we were there, we met another group of tourists. From Taiwan I think. Only weird Asians are interested in pipelines. =X We are introverts, so we moved to another quiet spot away from them. We self-entertained by writing in the snow, making snow angels and taking funny pictures.
Pigs help the engineers do maintenance work along the length of the pipeline. We left after about 15 minutes there because there was nothing much to do nor see there. If you ever visit Fairbanks, you can give this a miss.
On the way back, we came across this place called Pioneer Park, and decided to just go in and take a look.
I’d think (and hope) it’s highly popular and has lots of activities during summer, because we were the only people in the park, besides another family. The cabins were interesting and had a lot of history to them.
Being our first time in a country with snow, we were very very intrigued… and thus, played a lot in the snow. We jumped into it, rolled on it, stepped into it, and Mr Goh had a bite of out of it.
After a fun time at Pioneer Park, our tummies were kinda rumbling for some snacks. Off to The Chowder House for some tummy-warming soup.
Dinner that day was at Bulgogi Grill. Unfortunately, my weak stomach didn’t take well to the food, and I fell so ill after dinner that I vomited out most of dinner. Food servings were huge as with most US restaurants and we managed to take away half of it for our meal the next day (rather, Mr Goh’s meal since I was too sick for kimchi).
