Aloha friends! Adventure is for sure out there! I am setting sail onto my next chapter, and with this bring so much excitement, and plenty of nerves! The rough plan in to spend the next 2-3 months on the Hawai’ian islands, studying yoga, splashing in the water, studying for the GRE, volunteering whenever I can, leaving my comfort zone, and seeing as much as possible before relocating to So. Cal. So here I go with my back pack and two suitcases and west I have headed!
The Rockies & The Grand Canyon
Saying farewell to my family and friends in Boston was a whirlwind, especially with a 15+ hour travel day ahead. This was my longest travel day yet, and thankfully it went much smoother than I could have ever imagined. If I am being honest, I am a terrible flyer. My anxiety goes through the roof when it comes to flying, but luckily I had my travel partner, some good snacks, and plenty of movies to distract me. The first leg was from Boston to Los Angeles. The flight was smooth and I felt pretty calm! Hooray for the little victories! Not to mention we flew over the Rocky Mountains and the Grand Canyon before landing in LAX. What a beautiful and amazing sight!
Next, Hawai’ian Airlines (air)bused us from LA across the pacific to little Honolulu, on the Hawai’ian island of Oahu.It was late and dark when I arrived, and I was a tired traveler. We arrived at my home for the next few weeks in the town of Hale’iwa, and I closed my eyes, excited to wake up in paradise the following morning .
Hawai’i is pure magic, and waking up in paradise takes some time to wrap your head around. I spent the morning wandering around, taking in all of the sights, smells, tastes and sounds of this amazing place! I am so excited to spend the next few weeks here in this beautiful space, on these isolate islands! I will share with you all as much as I possibly can, and will try to post regularly! For now, I leave you with my first morning in paradise filled with yoga, acai bowls, beach walks, turtles and ukuleles!
Ali’i Beach Park in Hale’iwa is about a 10 minute walk from the house I am living in.
