It’s been three weeks since our return from the Garden Isle – Kauai! We were there longer than the title of this post but like the movie of the same name, got to see as much of the island as Harrison Ford and Anne Heche. What a great trip! Normally, Josée and I like to get off the beaten path a bit but we found a great deal on VRBO for a small condo in the village of Kapa’a on the East Coast of Kauai. Hawaii wasn’t our first choice but Kauai ended up being a great place for a relaxing holiday. It is sparsely populated and the locals are very authentic; I’ve never seen so many ‘shakas’ in action!
Wonderful weather, tremendous hikes, decent snorkelling and nice people all combined for a trip which was both relaxing and exciting. I won’t bore you with all the details; just suffice it to say that Mark’s Place, Anahola Beach and Kipu Ranch, among many other places, restaurants, hikes and beaches are burned into our memories! If you’re planning a trip to Kauai, I highly recommend it – if you need information, just let me know!
