I Don’t Do Snow!
Island girl, beach bum, tanorexic, sunset & hammock lover… These are just a few of the adjectives I use to describe myself and my frolicking traveling ways. I was born and raised on a tiny island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Maybe you have heard of it; Maui, Hawaii.
I never saw snow until I was 18 years old and I was not really impressed. Sure it is beautiful if you are sitting by the fire with an Irish Coffee in your hand but as far as having to actually go outside and do things in it, no way! I have never had a White Christmas.
The coldest place I ever have lived is San Francisco. After almost nine years of fog, rain and no real summer the weather was one of the main reasons that I packed, sold and left my life there to make the road my new home.
This winter I have found myself in Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and the Philippines. I must admit there is a part of me that misses my winter coats and the option of wearing boots but I wouldn’t trade the past sun filled few months for the grey skies and rain of San Francisco. So as my winter travel continues this month back to my childhood home on Maui I will be quite content to buy a few new bikinis, see the whales and hug family and friends before maybe heading to Norther Europe this Summer
