COMM0014 – Blog #1: My Last Vacation


Hawaii, what a magical place.  Just recently me and 2 very good friends took the trip of a lifetime to Kauai, Hawaii. With Hawaii not being one of the most affordable places in the world we had to figure out some fun ways to save money, so what did we do? We camped! Camping was definitely the best decision for this trip and I would recommend it to anyone, its waking up and going to sleep right on the beach to amazing sunrises and sunsets.

Most of our trip consisted of driving around the island exploring, meeting locals and finding the best places to go, best waterfalls to see, and of course, soaking up as much sun as we could get before it was back to the cold here in Canada.  I would say that each one of our days had at least 2-3 hours of hiking, and this hiking was not only intense but every place was just so breathtakingly beautiful.  One of the best that I would recommend is a hike to a place called “Secret Beach”, it’s a very secluded beach that is about an hour hike both ways from where you park, and it is so worth it.

As you can see in the picture I have at the top of this blog post, I got to cross off the number one thing on my bucket list, SKYDIVING!! I truly wish that I was able to put into words the feeling that you get as you are falling from 10,000 ft. in the air, it’s incredible.  The best way I can put it is that was somehow the most peaceful I have ever felt, I know that sounds strange and no one ever understands unless they have done it themselves.

I could go on about this trip long enough to write a novel, but what I am going to leave you with is a tip and a question.

TIP: When traveling, make sure that you are with people that you trust and truly get along with.

QUESTION: Have you been able to cross anything off of your bucket list? Tell me about it!
