Aloha From Hawaii Via Internet


I’ve finally arrived in Hawaii for my long awaited work vacation. I have holed up in a hostel a block from Waikiki Beach where I plan on getting face cancer from my laptop over the next 10 days.

It has been over three years since I was last in Hawaii. My previous trip was the interregnum between my South Pacific and North Pacific adventures. After a marathon day in August 2007 where I went from the Solomon Islands, Nauru, Kiribati, Fiji (and having denied entry to Kiribait which was the cause of the whole day from hell) I holed up in Honolulu for two weeks before setting off to Guam.

When I was thinking of a place to go to work, Hawaii immediately came to mind. I have good memories of being here and I wanted a place where I could just relax. The last several months I’ve been moving constantly, meeting with people and for the first time in a long time I can be by myself with no obligations, meetings or people to deal with.

Over the next few weeks, expect to be seeing a lot more from me on the website. I have an enormous backlog of photos and articles to write and I plan on getting up to speed on all of them.

I also am working on just being more productive with my time. As my website gets bigger, the demands on my time get larger as well and I don’t have anyone I can off load work to. I have to be more productive and make some changes to my schedule to balance travel and work. It will probably mean me saying “no” to more travel opportunities so I can better document the trips I do take.

If you are in the Honolulu area and would like to meet up, feel free to contact me. I’ll be here until November 19th when I leave for Thailand.
