First of all I wanted to make it clear that this journal entry is NOT about bragging because I went on vacation. If any of you know how badly I was down in the dumps before I left, then you understand how important it was for me to take this trip. My luck took a real turn for the worse for a few months. I was constantly depressed and it seemed that things were just becoming worse in every area of my life. I was really going through a rough time. I won't go into any of the real details of it because that's not the focus here. Kaua'i was everything I thought it'd be and more. I think everyone sometime in their lives needs to see this place. The colors, and the birds, the flowers, EVERYTHING. And you're never far away from a beach. I went on two tours, a luau, took a hula class, watched the sun rise and set on the beach, went out to dinner and ate some amazing native foods, met people from around the world, and indulged in all the culture of Hawaii that I could fit into 7 days. It's something I've wanted to do for years now and I feel like a brand new person. I've been home for a week and every night I've had dreams about Hawaii in some form. It felt like going home.
And please enjoy the pictures I've posted. Most are still in Stash at the moment, but I'm trying to post more everyday.
