Rounding the world: Day 40 – Oahu, Hawaii (day 7 of 7)…the journey completes…

Today marks the end of my journey around the world, circumnavigating the globe from Honolulu to Honolulu, going east and east until the circle was complete, crossing oceans and land via trains, planes, buses, horses, camels, and foot.

We woke up this morning at the Four Seasons in Ko Olina feeling bittersweet that this luxurious adventure had come to an end.

Rounding the world – Day 35: Waikiki, Hawaii…

Today is my last day of solo travel, starting this evening I won’t be alone again until who knows when. If I was an extrovert that thought would probably excite me, but as an introvert it scares the crap out of me! Knowing me-time would be instantly constrained soon, I tried to catch up on writing, emails/texts to friends, etc. Before I knew the morning … Continue reading Rounding the world – Day 35: Waikiki, Hawaii…
