On Sept. 2, 2012, my husband and I celebrated 35 years of marriage. One of the ways we celebrated was by taking a vacation during the month of August. It seemed fitting that 35 years deserved to be recognized with more than just a Labor Day holiday weekend getaway. When we started planning our vacation, we discussed various places we wanted to visit someday, ... Hawaii, Paris, London, as well as Los Cabos.
Working on the site really increased my anticipation of the trip tremendously, but it was also a good way to keep our plans organized. We were also able to pre-book some activities / tours online which allowed us to save some money too. Never before in our 35 years had we taken a trip where we knew day by day, what our plans were and where to go. This allowed us to make the most of our time together although we still had the flexibility of choosing to relax whenever we wanted or needed some down time.
My favorite "AH!" moment was driving through the "tree tunnel" to Poipu on the south side, but I also really enjoyed our meals at Scotty's on the beach in Kapaa on the first night and at Duke's Beach house the night we left to return to mainland. If you are ever there, you HAVE to get the HULA PIE! Jack asked the waiter, "Did Johnny Depp have Hula Pie?" and he replied "Johnny had TWO !!"
We spent 7 days in Kauai and it's a trip that we will never forget. It was worth every minute and the dream of a lifetime!
