Day 2: Hanalei Bay

4 comments - April 1, 2012 7:51 PM - category: Life in Hawaii, Travel

Sometimes all you need is sun, a sandy beach on an island in the pacific and a coconut. Not too much to ask for I reckon. Drinking coconut water-milk out of a coconut has been on my Bucket-list for Hawai’i since I moved here, but I obviously had to travel to another island to get it done. Nothing like being a tourist when it comes to getting things done.

I can recommend ice-cold coconuts. They are delicious.

In 2004 I started to write down what books I read in order to keep track of them all. Since 2006 I have gathered them here instead of in my notebook and they serve as a reminder of how I should read more and compete to beat my old “record”. You can find the complete list here.
