For today's edition of Oh The Places I'll Go...Or Want To.... we find ourselves on the lovely islands of the state of Hawaii.
Do I really need to say more after seeing these pictures?
I have always been intrigued by island living, and being secluded on a small piece of land. I have also always wanted to go somewhere that the temperatures are pretty much ideal. And by ideal I mean no snow. I almost had an opportunity to actually visit Oahu a couple years ago, but sadly it fell through. The longing to go hasn't waned though, and this is why it's my #2 destination spot.
I'm not a beach person at all. I had a traumatic experience when I was a child - which I won't bore you with -that left me disliking sand very very much. But putting that aside, I could absolutely see myself sitting on a beach sipping a mai tai getting my tan on. I know, I'm a weird duck, but this is what makes me loveable (I tell myself this to make me feel better). I can also see me scootering around any of the islands, zip-lining high through the trees, and enjoying a helicopter ride whilst island jumping. And if I see myself on a beach enjoying it, then I guess I also see myself hiking the gorgeous mountains, something I also dislike very very much. That's what vacations are for, to do things you otherwise normally wouldn't do.
Being that I don't need a passport or thousands of dollars (for airfare alone) to travel to Hawaii, I can see that this place is still a possibility, and then I smile.
