Alicia runs out the door on her way to work, trying to beat the morning rush. Thanks Alicia for letting us crash for a couple nights! Our morning is particularly exciting for us, since we are going to tour Mountain Thunder Coffee plantation. The organic coffee is grown in the Kona region and has been on the show “Dirty Jobs”. They show us everything there is to know about the coffee process from picking the beans to packaging.
We eat a quick lunch of fish tacos and head to Kona Airport to fly over to Oahu. The plan is to spend one night in Honolulu to get a taste of the night life and check out the concrete beaches. Arriving safely in Honolulu, we take the shuttle to our hotel in Waikiki. Our corner room provides us windows on both the south and east and a view down the city street to the beach, and also of Diamond Head mountain.
We grab some things for making dinner and bottle of red wine. As we relax, the sound of traffic and people far below on the streets is something we haven't heard much of during our time in Hawaii. Looking back on all the unique people have met and our experiences, we've learned a lot while visiting Hawaii. Their carefree, laid-back spirit and their family values are pieces of Hawaii that we'd like to take away with us. We've learned that attitude is everything.
