In a couple of days, I’ll be heading to what I’ve always thought of one of the most fascinating places on earth: Alaska.

“Alaska?!” you ask.
“Why?!” you sputter, flavoring your morning coffee with a healthy dose of envy, I imagine.
It all began when I met Mary Barber at the 2009 PRSA International Conference. Mary and I had corresponded on Twitter (is it weird to use that word in conjunction with Twitter? I don’t care.) and made a breakfast date to finally meet IRL.
You know what it’s like when you really like someone online and then you meet them in person and you go, “Oh, no…”
Nothing like that.
