I’m find it hard to believe that I will be flying to Hawaii in less then 2 weeks. That I will listen to the sound of the surf, feel the warm sand between my toes and relax lazily on the beach in Kapalua. What is even more surprising, though, is that I haven’t research the destination at all. I don’t know what’s there to do, I haven’t made any plan. I can’t even remember the name of the hotel where we’ll be staying. It’s very unlike me – but it feels very relaxing.
All things considered, it makes sense too. We are going there for a wedding, and so it will be all about the bride and what she wants to do. This will be a thing of organized activities, meals, etc, and so it would be a tad rude to excuse ourselves from the celebrations to go sight-seeing.
To offset the lack of planning for this vacation (and possibly for Tuscany as well), I have already started to plan our mini-trip to Montreal. Yes, I know, it’s 3 months away. But it’s challenging to try to fit so much yummy food in so few days!
In all reality though, there are two things that I need to start working on right away: re-familiarizing myself with the how-to of diving (I think I must have forgotten everything in the last year!) and learning some Italian (which would have been very helpful today at work!). Then, I will be able to enjoy both vacations a lot more.
