This time, I saying "Aloha" with a bit of sadness...
as I'm saying goodbye to the wonderful week
we have had here in the sun.
We have explored, played, celebrated,
and eaten a lifetime's worth of fish & hula pie.
My parents were here, too, and it was fun to share this with them.
They brought me with them to Maui
when I was about a year old...
and now, Viola gets to have the same fun
at the same age.
But I'm not just sad because
it's the end of a wonderful week and wedding...
I'm also sad because
we are flying back to London today...
* * *
We are flying from Maui to LA,
LA to NYC,
and NYC to London.
But, it'll all be worth it.
We'll grab our bags,
catch a night's sleep
and hit the road the next morning
for a Eurostar
and 10 days around the South of France
with my new semester.
So while I get a bit of tired head
thinking about the long travel days ahead,
I get really excited to think
that there are some young college students
about to have their worlds' explode
by studying overseas...
.... and that I get to be there for it.
