Anchorage is a really cool place to live. The people here are wonderful if you know the right ones, and everything is perfect in the summers. The winters, for me at least, are really difficult. Less opportunities to explore because snow/ice makes things very dangerous. Also in the lower 48 there are a lot more opportunities for things like photojournalism and law. Less competition probably, but also less opportunities here. I think it would be a really great place to start out, make connections and learn because it’s less stressful and not as fast paced as other cities, but not a good place to settle down in. I know I’ll be leaving eventually. If you do decide to live here though, contact me off anon and I can tell you a bit more about it!
You don’t know how much I appreciate that.
Thank you, and I won’t! I’ve not had much internet connection lately, but photos from my trip will be coming soon!
