Hawai‘i fragments

As with my Vegas trip, random thoughts from Hawai‘i which would fit on Twitter if I were the type of person to tweet while traveling.

  • How did kids travel before iPads existed?
  • I miss the smell of Plumeria in Honolulu airport.
  • I love the smell of entering a Hawaiian home.
  • The windward side of O‘ahu is vastly superior.
  • What kind of weirdo takes black and white film out to photograph tropical sunsets?
  • A waterproof camera would make it a lot more comfortable to stand in the surf while taking photos.
  • Hawaiian roads and road signage are designed to encourage you to stop driving and just hang out at the beach.
  • Kim chee sausage is a revelation.
  • Seriously. It’s fantastic in a “where has it been all my life?” kind of way.
  • There must be a way to get the Kukui Sausage Company to ship to the mainland.
  • Three-winged hotels do indeed all look the same.
  • Ko‘olina is scary.
  • But the service at the Ihilani is great.
  • So is the food.
  • Li hing mui is still the best shave ice flavor.
  • The lychee at Island Snow comes pretty close.
  • As does the Kona Coffee with snowcap.
  • I really need to find a source for malasadas.
  • Walter does not like natto.
  • More for me.
  • If your flight is going to be delayed, it may as well be a non-stop homebound flight leaving Hawai‘i.
