Time to end the suspense, and bring to a close one of our favourite travel experiences. Kauai solidified the path for all of our future travel; we discovered that independent travel resonated with us far more than the All-Inclusive route. Travel became an adventure, about exploring and finding those out-of-the-way places that few others visit. We have returned to Hawaii twice, visiting Oahu (again), Maui, and the Big Island, but have yet to return to Kauai. Perhaps my memory of Kauai is more beautiful and more pure that its current state, but for me, reliving this vacation through writing keeps those memories almost as vivid as being there. And to Jason, wherever you are, we’ll see you in the hot tub.
