This segment of our trip has been completely different than the others. To be honest, we never had trouble leaving a place (except maybe El Bolson, Argentina). Of course we met great people in South America, but here in Hawaii, there is a rooted bond, foremost to our friends — friends who took us under … Continue reading »

Hawaiian life lately, according to my camera

A peek at what’s been going on in our lives, both big and small, here in Hawaii… Remember how I groaned about having not trying stand-up paddle-boarding (SUP) here? Well, Eaman found us a place that both rents and drives people to nearby Ala Moana Beach Park, one of the best spots for SUP if … Continue reading »

When the Nagging Life Questions Bug You on the Road, Part II

I think one detrimental side effect of our online personas — whether they be on Facebook, Twitter or blogs like this one here — is that they set you up for failure — failure to achieve a life that can seem completely unattainable.
