Well, I’ve been in Hawaii for a couple days now and as much fun as I know I’m going ti have over the next two months, I got to say, I miss having my car.
I hate planing very far in advance. Normally while traveling, I don’t know in the mornings where I’ll be sleeping that night. I may have a general idea of where I want to go, but this whole having to plan and book rooms/campsites is cramping my style. Too much stress! I suppose I’ll get the hang of it though. When I get to the Big Island I’ll stay longer in each place and that should help.
Tonight I’m trying out my tent for the first time. It’s pretty windy, but I guess that’s why it’s called the windward coast. I’ve got my tent all set up on a nice spot next to the ocean and even though it’s only 3 in the afternoon I plan on just hanging out here, not doing much and putting off worrying about accomadations for the rest of my trip until tomorrow.
Hostels are nice, but I still got to say that traveling by and sleeping in a car is much, much simpler.
