06/04/2006: "On traveling alone"
Traveling alone is like living alone...on meth.
There is a hyper awareness (especially in Hawaii) of walking around, dining, etc. by oneself. I don't mind it exactly, in fact, aside from my constant battle against against the sun (my skin tends to sizzle) I'm having an amazing time. Yesterday I spent the entire day at the the Hapuna beach in Kohala. I got a cusioned mat, umbrella, mini cooler (for the beer) and boogie board. I love to play in the surf, there is nothing like the thrill of catching the perfect wave!
So, I only have 2 minutes left of Internet time so...to make a long story short, as much as I love having the freedom to go anywhere and do anything I want whenever I want, I miss having someone to talk to. Last time I was in Kona was with Rick and I've been missing him especially. But, that is only a small shadow in my otherwise love fest Hawaiiian style.
Aloha for now (btw, Internet cafe right across street from where I'm staying!)
