Hawaii – is it worth the journey? well…I’ve always been a skeptic. i am fortunate enough to be so much closer to Europe and the Caribbean so i’ve poo pooed Hawaii. it is beautiful – YES. it has the comforts of the US but feels different than other states – YES. it’s a LOOONG way to go.
it’s not something i’ll be doing often. BUT i truly enjoyed my visit there this time. people really reaaaallly love it there and there must be a reason. for me, it was the tremendous pride i saw in the local people. their culture is special and unique to the United States. for that i am proud too. their history, folklore, dancing & story telling was fascinating. here are some other likes and dislikes from my visit to the Aloha state!
things i loved:
things i didn’t love:
Best of the Best: Waimea Canyon
Worst of the Worst: MAJOR flight delays & losing 3 full days traveling
Favorite Moment: being over a rainbow at the Nepali Coast
Biggest Regret: not trying surfing
until next time – mahalo Hawaii!!!
