If I had a ticket to go anywhere, I would travel to Hawaii because It is like no place on earth and I have not once actually been in a real ocean. It has been an ambition of mine because I always wanted to learn how to surf. Hawaii is considered a paradise for vacations. Thousands of attractions all over the island. Amazing culture and food on the mainland’s of Maui and Oahu.
I am very sorry but I will not be able to visit you in North America for quite sometime, because I will be on the Hawaiian Islands for at least 3 more years. These past 10 months away have been quite enjoyable. There are groves of coconut trees spiraled up and interlaced which looked like concrete pillars. I especially adore the crisp salty sensation in the air and the aquamarine clear ocean which looks like glass. The homes that the Hawaiians live in were simple they are made from dry grass and long thick sticks.
“Is Hawaii’s Boring?” Entertainment is a key factor to commercializing the excitement for all areas of business. Hawaii is one of the most populated area in terms of tourism. Certain factors such as temperature, and resources make Hawaii amazing, but the entertainment provided from the culture itself makes the “Hawaiian experience.” There are over a hundred things to do in Hawaii.
A Pulchritudinous Paradise in the Pacific Imagine wind whipping around your face as you look down at the ground. You're so high in the sky that it’s almost as if you could extend your arm and touch the clouds. You look up, and see a burst of thousands of colors streaking across the sky. Rosey pink, dark purple, magenta, and so many other shades of colors, it’s hard to picture.
In the Hawaiian language, Lanikai means “heavenly sea” and when I would gaze upon the beach I knew why. The golden, toe wiggling sand was so soft I could walk for miles. The tranquil Hawaiian waters were so crystal clear with hints of turquoise and greenish shades, it felt like I was in a dream. When I glared at the sea, feathers of golden light cascaded from the sky and disembarked below the water’s surface, reflecting the sand from the oceans foundations, which fought against the down-pouring
Hawaii Home to one of the world’s most active volcanoes, lies the beautiful islands of Hawaii. Stretching 1500 miles across the Pacific Ocean and twice the size of Mount St. Helens these islands are one of the youngest geological formations on the earth. These volcanoes are around 80 million years old and is where paradise meets darkness. Behind the stunning views and beautiful beaches, Hawaii has a storm of volcanoes erupting destroying everything in its path. Some may ask what causes this beautiful place to have such active volcanoes and my answer is complex yet simple.
“DO IT! DO IT! DO IT!” Their voices thundered in my ears as I cautiously peered over the cliff’s edge at the churning, foamy water below. I felt as if the entire world was urging me to jump, when in reality it was only a small group of shivering boys.
One of my best experiences with nature was my trip to Aruba on Caribbean island the past winter; it was the remarkable and joyful adventure. The geography and climate in Aruba are certainly the most important and attractive. While lying on the beach, I could feel the soft white sands between the gaps of my toes, I could hear the sounds of the waves, and I could smell the fresh salty air. The ocean gives me feeling of refreshment and calms me down. While I was climbing up on the mountain in the early morning, everything around me was silence, the green plants, tremendous trees, and flowers.
I got a ride home from school just like any other ordinary day in October of 2013. It was more than two years ago but I still remember every unpleasant moment, starting from when I walked in the door. My sister, Kaitlyn, sat on the couch in our living room yelling at her phone, who I soon found out was my mom. This wasn’t surprising for me since they had been arguing all Summer due to our move to Hawaii in June.
Ted Talk: The thing that Ruth Chang is trying to say in her Ted Talk is that there are a lot of difficult decisions that we have to make in life. They may seem hard, but that is just because we are thinking about them the wrong way. There are no best alternatives to these choices. So instead of trying to find reasons to make one decision over another, we should make reasons for ourself. Making reasons for ourself is natural, and it has shaped each person to be the way they are.
Many Native Hawaiian people have lost touch with their culture. Many people around the world don’t know about the unique Hawaiian culture. People in America don’t know a lot about these unique Hawaiian arts either. Many of the old Hawaiian traditions were lost because foreigners took over the Hawaiian islands and banned many Hawaiian traditions that have been going on for decades. This loss of culture was devastating for the people and was hard to gain back after almost being completely eliminated.
