HAWAII...IS A GOOD REWARD TO GIVE YOUR SELF....

By

Many years ago...I went to Hawaii for my first time. Just the thought of going to Hawaii is so pleasant in and of itself. There is no negative associated with any of it. It is like a reward for ones self and loved ones. Honeymooners choose this place often too

THE FLIGHT IS GOOD

The flight over there is short and productive. The airlines have it down to a pleasurable science. They time everything so well so that when the movie is finished, your there. Seeing it from the plane, the island is captivating. As soon as you step out into the air of Hawaii, you know your not in Kansas anymore..

Even the soil is different. Rich red and deeply nourishing to just about anything that grows in it. To see the different plants and wildlife is a treat too. Clear skies, soft breezes, warm water...yum

RENT A JEEP

Once you get settled, rent a jeep. No top either. You will want to cruise around the island stopping wherever you choose. No spot that you stop in is wasted. You can follow the tour buses and go where they go too only on your own schedule. I discovered so many isolated places where you can just pull over and, nap, hike, swim...

NIGHT TIME IS SPECIAL

At night, depending where you are, can be very fascinating indeed. Preparing for the sunset is a big deal over there. It is like a show brought to you by God every evening no two shows alike. Most people take this in with a drink in one hand, some good food in the other plus throw in the pleasant company of a friend or loved one and the word paradise boasts in the moment.

THE DRINKING WATER

The bonus that I never expected, and there are a lot of pleasant surprises over there, was the first time I tasted the water. It was like nothing I have ever had and I had been drinking water all my life. That makes me an expert BTW. It was so tasty because it had no taste, It was full bodied, but lighter than air. It was more crystal than clear and it left one with a feeling of having received a reward for drinking it.

NATURAL PROCESS

You see the rain lands on the mountains and then starts this long journey down filtering itself through volcanic rocks making itself pure, then purer, and then purer than purer....whew! Its a treat

DON'T NEED LOTS OF $$$

It is not expensive to go there. Here is a healthy goal for anyone to achieve and you will get back so much in return. Work real hard and steady for a few months. Save your money and go on rice and beans if you have too. Plan the trip savoring every thought as you go. Then, go....

CANT GO JUST ONCE

I have been there four times. I am planning to go there hopefully one day soon and spend at least 30 days leisurely there hiking, swimming, exploring and repeating that over and over. The whole thing shouldn't run over $2000 for me and my wife, the renting of a place, meals, and miscellaneous.

YOUR MONIES WORTH AND THEN SOME

The value one gets back in return exceeds the money spent part by leaps and bounds.....all I can leave you with is ALOHA!

You have no idea how badly I would love to go.  This year Oregon and perhaps next year Hawaii.

Stefan..do your self right...plan it out. Look for the best air fare, renting a place and I visit AAA and get maps and books on the area which are free to members. That way, when i get there, I got everything planned out and i am familiar with it all...Then, my friend, wear no watch, watch no clock and live......

Sea to Sky...know s why...yes dear lady, it is doable and achievable and gives more than it demands. How can you beat that!..thank you for your commenting

I LOVE Hawaii so much, I could go every year. I lived on Kauai for 9 weeks, that was pretty special.

Lori...what makes this all intriguing is that it can be done when one decides to do so....Lori, we need to up the morale in this country and Hawaii is a good morale booster and rooster......to crow about

 

David & Bonnie...you not only would catch the red eye, but you already caught the spirit of it all...Ask your self this...What the heck are you waiting for? Life is too short to deny ones self this little taste of home made premium strawberry shortcake topped with fresh everything and lots of love...Get on this now....

...what a strange coincidence...I've been drinking water all my life too!  Great post, and funny!  It's an amusing idea that one could actually leave today and arrive yesterday! (Who would have believed it possible 120 years ago?)Family members could even call you from tomorrow to assure you everything will turn out okay today...ha ha!
