My wife and I don’t traditionally go on vacation that much. In the earlier years of our marriage, our “vacation time” was typically spent taking the family hither and yon to visit grandparents. (My wife’s family lived in the Western United States and my family lived in the Eastern.) From experience, I can tell you that such outings did not really count as a vacation.
Recently, though, we’ve made a more conscious effort to take real vacations. At the first of June of this year we were able to go on one such vacation, spending a week on the island of Kauai. (One of the islands in the state of Hawaii.)
We had been to Hawaii a couple of decades ago, to the islands of Oahu and Hawaii. That was a fantastic trip, and I thought it would be almost impossible to beat—until we went to Kauai.
This has to be the most gorgeous place I’ve ever visited; it is absolutely fantastic. I’ve included a few photos below to give you a hint as to what you can find on the island. The pictures are great, but they don’t do justice as to what you really see and experience.
Short story: we spent a week in paradise. If you ever get a chance to go to Kauai, go. You won’t regret it.
