At yet, another Coffee shop.

Today is my day of reflection and internet in Honolulu being spent all by my lonesome. I needed some time to be by myself today. Sometimes you just need your own thoughts, ya know?

Honolulu is amazing. I feel so far away when I talk to my mom and she says its 9 degrees!!! Ouch, Im here, sweating! Cant complain, huh?

Last night I went to a local sushi restaurant with a group of about 14 kids. It was so great. I had some ahi that changed my life and some tataki sashimi that went down like water. I dont normally clear my plate, but I ate everything on that plate. MMMM! Made me super excited for Japan in about 11 days, to eat some sushi in the mekka of all maki!

11 days of boat food...we will definitely deserve all of the sushi and noodles we eat in Japan. The best diet ever is boat food because I would rather go hungry than eat gross pasta and weird fish... Ok mikey stop being a snob....

And finally, here are some pictures! Yay!!

Life on the boat... Looking around and seeing nothing but water!!!

When we got to Hawaii I took some pictures but I was so glad to be on land I didnt really want to waste my time with my HUGE camera out, so I didnt over load on pics. But here are some:

Ill have some more Hawaii pics later!

And also, eventually Ill have a post on amazing trees Iv seen. Seriously, epic trees in this world of ours. Especially in our very own state of Hawaii, which Im pretty sure is the most amazing place on earth. Looks like a backdrop all the time.

Alright Im going to catch some rays and miss my friends, family, and my boyfriend. But dont flatter yourselves I wont be bottom dwelling too much, hell its 88 degrees out, what is there to bitch about?!?!?

Love you all!

Ants crawling on the walls of this Coffee Shop

Hello my loves! Right now I am writing from a coffee shop in Hilo, Hawaii. The man is charging me nothing, I dont think he knows what is going on. Hilo is.... HILOarious. I dont think people like money here, no one will charge money for nice deeds, a bit opposite from Chicago. The seven day stretch was pretty brutal on the ship, but we finally made it. THANK GOD. Here are some pics from ship life:

AHHH! This is so annoying. I have so many great pictures, BUT this "way too mellow for comfort" shop has THE shittiest connection EVER. I will be in Honolulu tomorrow and will have a way better connection there, from what I have hear, people in Honolulu care more about things than in Hilo. In Hilo, Hiloians wouldnt care if they get hit my a car and lose their legs. When we ask what to do here, they all laugh out loud because there is NOTHING to do. We saw some waterfalls, they were pretty. Then we walked around... then walked some more... The bus stops at 4pm. 4 PM!?!?!

But Im so fed up with this silly internet biz, and I really want to update pics and posts, I am going to purchase internet on the boat. This is FAR too annoying. Love you all! Please stay in touch. My email is I can check it for free, so email email email me!!!! If anyone is even reading this. I meant for this blog to be much more visual than wordy. Ill find a better connection so I can connect.

Well this is it. My first post, and also my last day here, at home. Tomorrow I will be embarking on the biggest adventure of my life. Im am flying to San Deigo and then from there I will be leaving on the MV Explorer to travel the world via ship.
Packing was a challenge, to say the least. 4 months, two bags? seriously? Yep, it was like stuffing a 10 pound sausage into a 5 pound bag.
However, among the many items and articles of clothing I will be taking along the way, I have also packed two companions. Unfortunately my boyfriend and my sister could not fit into my bags so the two companions I am bringing are two dear friends, Little Mikey and Boo.


Together we will storm the world.
Next stop: The MV Explorer!!!
