travel journal: oahu, chapter 1.

I have fond attachments to Hawaii.  Apollo Robbins kidnapped me more than 3 years ago and proposed to me in Maui.  In the middle of the Pacific, in that impeccably breezy air and those golden sunsets, where the island spirit sneaks into the most cynical of persons, the billowing winds expand your soul and the shimmering ocean beckons you to say yes.  So I did, it didn’t hurt that I also had a man with whom I was deeply in love.

Since then, I’ve returned to the islands to visit Kauai, whose spectacularly wild beauty still fights to be the favorite island in my heart.  And on this trip, Oahu.  Oahu has a little bit of everything to please the pickiest of tourists: from the glamorous and busy Waikiki to the breathtaking seascape of the North Shore and its superhuman big-wave surfers to the much sought-after delicious shrimp trucks, no longer an underground secret of foodies.
