Aloha for Now Hawaii, Now Off To Michigan

Day 6, November 26th 2019
Today is our last day in Hawaii and I write this now while sitting at the Laylow’s cute restaurant and coffee shop, waiting to head out to my flight. Kaitlyn left already as she booked an earlier departure and as we’re going on our separate ways at this point. We woke up early again and took out the hotel’s bikes to cruise around the city one last time. We road along the shoreline before ending up at another nearby, very Instagram worthy hotel, called Surfjack, for lunch.
After that, we wasted time by watching Friends in our hotel bedroom before saying goodbye.
In all, this trip was one for the books. Kaitlyn again was an amazing travel partner and we didn’t let even a moment go by without enjoying ourselves. From the crazy old man in our hostel room on night one to getting a view of Pearl Harbor from the sky, every second of this trip was special. Hawaii is alluring in every way (especially if you can avoid the touristy areas). Its’ endless mountain ranges and colorful beaches are like no other place I’ve visited. And while it's still a part of America’s great 50 states, it certainly feels as if you’ve stepped off the plane into a foreign country.
The slow way of life enjoyed by those who reside here is one I learned to appreciate and soak in. Which is easy to do, when the nature surrounding you is impossible not to want to immerse yourself into. Now I’m jetting off to a week in Michigan with my family for Thanksgiving - another leg on my journey that I can’t wait for. So for now, I say Aloha to Hawaii, but will most certainly return within time.
