So I spent spring of 2010 in one of the most beautiful places on Earth: Hawai’i. This is my attempt to chronicle my experiences in Hawai’i and how they may have change my outlook on life for my own personal records. Hawai’i is one of the most unique and isolated places on the planet. It was once a sovereign nation with it’s own people, language, and culture. I was fortunate enough to live on Hawai’i island for 5 months and go beyond the typical tourist experience thanks to my parents. As the saying goes, what happens in Hawai’i stays with you forever.
