Aloha from Hawii,
If god created a paradise I would say he paid extra special attention to this place, it is beautiful. I mean as soon as you get off the plane your jaw will just drop. Or at least mine did, I’m a country girl but where I am from the land is flat and the weather is bipolar. Here, the mountains are breathtaking, the weather is perfect. It is all just wonderful.
I didn’t know what I was expecting, tiki huts maybe. But there aren’t any. I was expecting hotels everywhere but they seem to only be along the coast. The beaches are so crowded, get there early or don’t go at all because you will never find a good spot. There are just too many people here.
My family and I are staying in a house that we rented out for the week and a few day, it is wonderful. I mean I’m spoiled for life. No more hotels for me. We have our own beach, own dock, own pool. Two kitchens, eight bedrooms. It is surreal, literally.
The only bad thing I can think of is the jetlag, OMG!
