I love this woman so muuuuch. I am the most fortunate human being on the planet.
Photos taken in our accomodation (Koloa Landing Resort) Kauaii, Hawaiii (January 2012)
This was our first time out of Australia
. We went to USA and the first leg of our tour was Hawaii where my brother got married. We had an amazing time. The accommodation in the photo was shared with my sister, her husband and children and my mum and dad. We all had our own rooms and bathrooms with a shared living space.
You should note the very stereotypical Hawaiian garb we wear, which we were surprised to find not only the tourists but the locals actually do wear everywhere. We purchased ours at a tourist shop at the airport though. The beads were given free on arrival at the accommodation.
We arrived on Kauai from the Big Island late into the night and it is amazing we were able to drive straight to the accommodation with no concerns in the pitch black night with no map. Kauai is very untouched by tourism and of the islands is the most quiet, there is very little signage and that’s how the locals seem to like it. We basically had to rely on the extreme survival skills and amazing instincts of the writer whose instincts told him to drive wherever his wife told him because then if it was wrong and we got lost it would be her fault. Those instincts were right because we basically arrived with no need for maps or other directions. The accommodation was so self contained and luxurious. Very casual too and much chillage was had not just with our family but with our new Canadian family that came as part the package when my brother marrried my new sister. They were very cool people and now our friends for life.
Katie and I celebrated our fifth wedding anniversary twice, once in Australia and then we travelled back in time to gain the same date again in America. It was cool to have a wedding anniversary in Sydney and the next day the same wedding anniversary in Hawaii. Although I have to say, marriage is something we try to celebrate everyday and I am thankful to God for her everyday.
