Stars shine with an orange moon as we drive to the airport at 4a.m. My wrinkly eyes squint after only three hours of sleep.
Sunrise brings light over Chicago as our plane lands for a quick layover. My stomach has always had problems when traveling, cause I tend to eat things like granola bars and trailmix and dried fruit…my mom saved my morning by having a fresh apple to pair with the other snacks.
Note to the travelers: bring fresh fruit or carrots with lemon water to help keep you refreshed and not weighed down and bloated.
But for real now, back to the trip.
The backstory: Mi Amor and I went on a trip the end of February (2 months ago) to Hawaii Kai (south east Oahu) via ticket vouchers through Delta Airlines and helpx.net allowed us to work on an organic farm in the mornings in exchange for food and stay. In other words: we went to hawaii with all our needs met and only spent money when we wanted to. We went on an adventure.
The weekend we bought our tickets online in early January, my mom sent a confirmation email “GET THESE DATES OFF WORK!”
We are being spoiled by my parents; they are taking my brother and I, along with our spouses to the North Shore of Oahu for one week. ITS ALL IN HONOR OF THEIR MARRIAGE!!! They have been married for 35 years and have saved and dreamed of this trip for a long while…
And it’s finally here.
Keep up with our travels as I blog each day about the adventures and relaxing times.
