The best trips come in spans of 2 weeks. 2 weeks in South Africa in 2010 and now 2 weeks home in America. Life just keeps dropping 14-day-chunk gems on me and I love it!
I cashed in some of my saved up vacation days and headed far east. First stop: home sweet home. I stayed in Hawaii for a few nights before leaving to New York for my friend Dale’s wedding. This was to be my first time on the east coast, not to mention a whole gang of friends I met in Japan were also going to be attending Dale’s wedding. After I found out we’d all be staying in the same hotel/borough I was more excited than ever. I already knew it was going to be crazy good!
Sure enough, my time in New York was amazing. I stayed 4 nights in Brooklyn and 2 in Queens and probably slept a total of 12 hours! Sleep when you’re dead, right?
Needless to say everyday was spent doing something with someone. A whirlwind of subway rides and one way streets later I was on my way back to Hawaii.
Literally as soon as I leave Honolulu airport I jump into another long list of things to do, people to see, food to eat. It’s seriously a non-stop ride, all the while making an effort to point my camera at my surroundings every now and then. I tell myself over and over, “If not now, when?” And this keeps me going. I’ve taken so much away from this last trip home it’s ridiculous. Namely, a stronger sense to get my hustle on. To really push towards what I want.
Seeing new places is so revitalising. Seeing people develop is so motivating. Most of all when I see kids I used to know being little adults, I feel that sense of time. The sense that time does not stop and it’s always moving. So I feel like it’s up to me to keep up!
Anyhow, I’m sure my feelings are reflected in the HI NY HI videos I made. Enjoy!
