maui was very nice. it doesn't live up to the hype, but how many things in this life do? except alice cooper, perhaps, whom we saw at the makena golf club. but besides him, not much.
so, i'd go back, but rather than be redundant, we'll head to o'ahu, in november.
never been to hawaii in my life, now we're going twice in 4 months. go figure. but mrs. spaceneedle scored some cheap tickets online, and it's too good an opportunity to pass up.
o'ahu has a reputation for tourists, traffic and some other t-word to be named later. as long as it isn't "temperance."
we'll do our homework a bit more diligently this time. we've already bought an "insider's guide" to the island, which may be a joke the natives play on tourists. no matter. whatever we learn will be more than we know now.
i'll also head into the nearest dive shop to update my gear. turns out the equipment purchased second-hand in 1993 is slightly out of date. pity...it worked perfectly well 4 years ago.
time flies, whether you're having fun or not. i need more fun in my life.
