Today we’re going to talk about the time I dropped a glass bottle of red juice on the floor of a convenience store in Amsterdam.


Wanderlust Wednesday: South Africa

It’s another Wanderlust Wednesday and today I’m dreaming about South Africa. Let’s go along together on a journey to the beautiful country at the Southern tip of the African continent.

Luau Kalamaku (Kauai, 2010)

Luau Kalamaku was my first luau, and it was a lot of fun! I was a bit hesitant at first because I’m not into really cheesy touristy stuff, but I do love hula and fire dancing and I have been dying to try some poi. Plus, there’s not much to do in the evening in Kauai so we thought it would be a fun thing to do one night. This luau is held at the Kilohana Sugar Plantation. When we arrived, we got lei’d (he he) and walked around and checked out some cool booths with the work of local artists. I got a hand carved turtle necklace straight from the artist, and Norwood got a cool spiral necklace from the same guy.

Be Open Minded

When you travel, it is important to keep an open mind. You’ll be presented with new cultures, new places, new languages, new customs, new food, new people. It is important to be receptive of these new things and willing to get out of your comfort zone to try new things and accept new ideas.
