It's official, we're headed to Hawaii. We have procured our one-way tickets, leased out the units that we just purchased in Bend and are now counting down the days until departure. I've been trying to get everything ready for spending the next six months trapped on a small island, but really haven't done anything except purchase a few new swimsuits and some sunnies. Somethings got to give here soon.
Denver and I are both quite terrible at planning vacations, long term or short term. We'd really like to just show up on the island, surf boards in hand, and figure everything out once we're there in person. We've done that before, in different scenarios, only to realize that upon arrival those first few days can be rather hellish. While in the middle of those hellish first few days, we always promise ourselves to plan ahead next time. But, next time rolls around and we find ourselves on repeat, no hotel or camping reservation, no rental car reservation, no water in our water bottles.
This time around, things will be different. I promise.
