Recharging my batteries

Do you ever feel like a hamster on a wheel? Going, going, going, with little time for rest? It is nice to take a break, find relaxation and get rejuvenated. Vacation was just what was needed!

Twenty-three years ago, my husband and I were married on Kauai, in a beautiful Japanese garden on a golf course. Our honeymoon hotel was in the sunny Poipu area, where we had the time of our lives and fell in love with the island. The following year, hurricane Iniki hit Poipu and wiped out our hotel. When we visited Kauai many years later, we were saddened to see a fence still surrounding the broken dilapidated structure that had been Poipu Beach hotel.

But this year was different!

The hotel had been rebuilt and the spectacular view was back. This happy discovery was one of many as we reconnected with our favorite haunts of Kauai visits past.

As a family, we reminisced about our previous trips and revisited many of our favorite sites, hiking the best trails on the island including trails in Waimea Canyon and the Napali Coastline. We toured by helicopter and boat, and found the scenery was still as breathtaking as ever. I will never cease to be amazed by Kauai’s beauty.

Getting away from the hectic life for a few weeks did my body and mind good! I was refreshed, rejuvenated and ready to tackle things anew. My batteries had been recharged!

Spending quality time with family, while doing the things you love in paradise is a recipe for rest and relaxation in my book!
