Hawaii…

Not being a beach girl, I didn’t think that I would enjoy Hawaii as much as other people.  What I didn’t realize is that Hawaii is awesome.

From the multiple black sand beaches to others with hot as lava when you walk across it sand to the one just steps outside of our hotel room, they were all awesome.  We saw fish, all kinds of weird birds, and multiple green sea turtles.

Of course, I did get a humongous burn the very first full day we were there. Oops…but my husband got it worse with blisters forming on his. 

Everything else on HI was awesome. It is a strange state…saw a feral donkey and goat hanging out together, chickens were everywhere in Kauai, signs for watching for cracks in the road. Just awesome.

Summer Plans

I enjoy planning trips very far in advance…gives me something to look forward to.

At the moment, we are going to Ireland in the spring sometime and then, its onto our regular mountain climbing days. The mountains we plan to summit this year are:

  1. Tom
  2. Field
  3. Willey
  4. Hale
  5. Waumbek
  6. Whiteface
  7. Mossilauke

Also in the works are trips to the Cape, a trip to Boston Light, Saint Gaudens and Marsh Billings, the paper house in Ipswich. Who knows what else. I have 2 days off next week so I might just go somehwere then so I can get some of this travel bug out of me!

New York!

Tomorrow, I brave my first bus to New York. We did not book Fung Wah, but rather the Bolt Bus and hopefully it will be better than not. At least our hotel is close to the drop off point so we won’t have to worry about that too much.

Plans include:
Going to the Museum of Natural History
Going to see a taping of the Daily Show
Going to FAO Schwarz to look at the Muppet Factory
Walking through Central Park

We did also get tickets to the Colbert Report for June, so that will be our next trip. That one, though, might just be a quick in and out. Not sure yet.

Back from the Wedding Weekend

Yum!
Yum!

We have made it back from our weekend of Maris(s)a weddings with little problems other than a serious lack of motivation to finish my internship paper, only 2 1/2 pages left! Either way, the weddings were both for a girl named Maris(s)a and could not have been more different.

Marissa and Richard had: a full mass, a weird priest, fog for their first dance (seriously Disney like), lots of drunk friends, an injury at the end of the reception, and lots of hungover 20 year olds the next day.

Marisa and Mike had: a long Protestant ceremony, a nice priest, the best appetizers that we have ever had (they had sushi and an ice fountain with drinks in it!), an injury at the beginning of the ceremony, great food for dinner (the filet melted in my mouth and the champagne was soooo good), and a lot of hungover 20 year olds the next day.

So, some similarities, but each unique. I took some pictures…but I shake and low light does not combine to make pretty pictures. Need to get a monopod or something so that I only lean instead of lean and shake.

Right now, I’m just glad to be in my own home instead of a hotel and getting this work done so I don’t have a panic attack tomorrow. The Red Sox are going to mess up my commute to school, but I’ll be home before the game ends.
