Last week, I was keeping secret the vacation plans that I had brewing, waiting only to get my ticket in my hands (or inbox) before unleashing it on my loyal readership.  Well, the wait is over, today’s the day…. Hawaii, here I come!

As you all know, I’ve been dying to travel and to get somewhere new.  When I put word on the street that I wanted to get around, my call was answered by my very dear friend, Jason, a guy who has a habit of coming through for me when I least expect it.  He sent me an email that said "I’ve always told you that wherever in the world I go, my place is your place.  Come visit!"  Seconds later, I was at and after about ten days of price watching, I bought my flight yesterday morning.  I don’t know if I’m more excited about being in Hawaii or seeing Jason. 

Back in the day, Jason and I used to date.  He was just finishing up nursing school down the street and in fact, lived three doors down from where I am right now.  We were only neighbours for a couple of months before he left to go to work in San Francisco.  He spent a few years there and I visited him once in December 2003.  That’s the last time we met.  He moved to Honolulu about a year ago and absolutely loves it there.  He’s bought a place and a car and as he put it, he practically lives in boardshorts and t-shirts.  What a life.

So, round about the time that the rainy Vancouver transition between fall and winter is really starting to grate on everyone, I’ll be jetting off to a nice warm beach.  I can’t freaking wait!

Now, off to plan my trip to Calgary, then Portland, then…


Isn’t he a beauty??

Oh, and thanks for keeping my secret, Sarah.  There was just no way I couldn’t tell you!

    eeee! I’m so jealous. I went to Hawaii in 1999 and I’ve always wanted to go back. You’re going to have so much fun!

    1999 was when I was there too, only I went to Maui then. It hasn’t been a huge priority, but now that J’s there it climbed higher on the list. I’m going to start counting the days very soon.
