My Trip to Kauai Hawaii

I returned a few days ago from the first vacation (in my life) to Kauai. Time has gone by so quickly, with working, putting myself through college, graduate school, and now moving into the early to mid stages of my career. Vacations are hard to come by, so this was a rare chance for me to get off the grid and relax on the garden isle.

I can be a very tense flyer, but luckily I brought my assortment of electronics and earphones to drone out the noise of kids and crying babies. The nervous energies and crying tend to exacerbate my tension.
Tip for anyone who easily gets cold: do not book your seats at or near the exit rows.

My first view of the oceanfront condo I stayed in was incredible.

We were on the third floor of the Wailua Bay View Condos

A storm hit the island during our first two days in Kauai, so we lost two days of outdoor activities. The thunder and lightning combined with strong winds and flash flood warnings were very intense.

Days 1 and 2 in Kauai were spent in our condo with good food from the island. Our first stop was Korean BBQ, a great place for Korean and Hawaiian food. Their chicken katsu was exceptionally fresh and had a nice crunchy outer layer.

Once the storm settled, I captured an amazing view of the sunrise:

I will post more of my adventures soon, but for now feel free to check out my visit to the Spouting Horn in Kauai.
