Sweet Musings with a Bitterly Sharp Wit

Adjusting to Island Time


What do you call a trip that’s not quite a vacation, not entirely business, and lasts for a whole month? No, this isn’t a riddle, this is what I’m trying to figure out! I’ve made the leap over to Hawaii in hopes of weathering the worst of winter in a tropical paradise, and it’s wonderful, disorienting, dizzying, and exciting all at once. Never fear; regular posting will resume shortly, as soon as I adjust to island time.

  4. Its called “Heaven” ma’am ;) Have a blast and can’t wait to see what intersting things you manage to find and share. I LOVE it when you go to Hawaii! (Bugger…the Beach Boys earworm “Hawaii” has just returned to my long suffering brain for the immediate future…”Hawaii…hawaii…gonna go to Hawaii…AARRRGGHGHH!” ;)


  5. Um… I call that amazing! Enjoy your time! Make sure to take lots of pics for those of us in colder weather :)

  13. Here’s a quick list of places that I’ve tried:
    **Simply Joy (Vietnamese & Italian)–kind of a crazy combo, but their food is pretty good. Get the Vegan Bun Bo Hue
    Peace Cafe-Get the Bi Bim Bop or the Avocado sandwich
    **DownBeat Diner-Open until 3 am in Chinatown
    YardHouse-Not all vegan, but they have Gardein products (wings) and other options
    **Down to Earth Market-Good hot and cold bar-Baked goods–get the Acai Bowl
    Kokua Market-Another organic market
    Waiola Shave Ice-get the red bean shave ice with coconut
    Diamond Head Cove Health Bar-Great Smoothies and sandwiches
    Can’t wait to read all about it!


  14. Oooh, good for you Hannah! Long trips are absolutely the best! Enjoy and try not to work to hard!


  15. What a fantastic idea! We are currently experiencing sub-zero temperatures for the 3rd week in a row. I would love to be in Hawaii right now. Your photos are absolutely stunning!
