This summer the hubby and I got the opportunity to visit Hawaii for the first time. The best way I can describe the trip was a banquet for the senses. Immediately when disembarking the plane, the air wafted sweet with plumeria and other tropical smells. The warm tradewinds were like a warm, gentle touch on the skin. No matter where we looked, the sky, water and greenery were intense with color. I now understand why people return to the islands over and over again.
