Travel Tip Thursday is back...

When I said I was gimping and limping back into blogging, I wasn't fooling around. Back in the day, Travel Tip Thursday went up Wednesday night. That's because even though I started this post at 4 AM here in Hawaii (and it looks like it will go up about 5 - what with the uploading of photos) you folks on the Mainland are way ahead of me in time.

But I get home from work late, often to a hectic home, sometimes to unbloggable, and there you go.

Anyways. There's a small kind contest going on. Those of you linking travel posts can win a cookbook or cocktail recipe book.

I have posted this hike before, but it has been awhile. I have my new camera, new photos, and this hike is such a metaphor for my life these days. The steep stair climb. The moments of reflection and deep breaths.

Welcome to the Koko Crater stairs.......












Link on up!

Argh! I didn't get to do it, sorry. I do love the new pictures though. Very cool views!

OMG BC!! I LOVE that second photo. He is SO handsome!

Okay, I'm linking all 3 of my Galapagos posts, but I think they should altogether count as one entry.

absolutely gorgeous, as always :) While I know that all of it is not "paradise" I envy your daily views. Oh, how I miss the ocean!

Did you really post grey pictures of my dream destination? Pseudo, it's only sunny on your side of the country. Don't burst my bubble! Your travel companion is adorable, though. Very chipper.

I am determined that I will climb those steps with you!

I didn't get my act together with a post today. Insane week.

I love what you're doing w/ the camera too - great shots!

I was traveling on Thursday (and Friday) but will get a post up today!

BTW, neat pictures, but those stairs (road road tracks?) look tiring!

My routine walk includes a set of 121 steps. I think walks/hikes are always metaphors for life.
