The Lure of Hawaii…

From the moment you step off that plane and walk through the open air terminals at  Honolulu International airport, you notice something extremely different about where you are.  The air is warm and full of amazing tropical scents.  People are extremely friendly, not that over the top fake friendly you get at some vacation destinations, but just really friendly and full of that ‘Aloha’ spirit that you will find nowhere else.

I often wonder out of all the people who have vacationed on Oahu from all over the world, how many have daydreamed about moving there.  I would guess it has to be in the high 90 percent range.  I have been doing my own daydreaming for about 5 years now. Since my last vacation there to attend the NFL Pro Bowl.  I spent 17 days there during that trip and almost didn’t come home.

I still can’t put my finger on the main reason why Hawaii is such an alluring place.  I have come to the conclusion that, for me, it is a combination of several reasons. I’ll expand on those reasons in future posts.

  1. Your description of landing is perfect, and true. It is a long flight for me to reach my favorite place, Maui, but the excitement of seeing the island for the first time after all those hours–it is a feeling of being home. Maybe it is the land, the air, the ocean, or some mystical thing…it is home like no place else on the face of this earth. I promised myself back in 1990 that I would live in Hawai’i one day. I will.

    Bravo to you for seeking your dream!
