My Cabana at The Whaler

Aloha! I want to share a little video clip from my cabana day because it's so beautiful here!

Please excuse the weird sucking sound I make periodically. I didn't catch it until later in the day, and I couldn't re-record. I promise not to wear my Invisalign in any more videos. Cross my heart!

Also, at one point I say this is "real life." All I meant was I'm not out at a tourist attraction. I'm just having a normal a resort. I completely get it that there is nothing "real" about that. Sorry! (I'm learning to edit. For now, please excuse.)

In spite of the very flawed clip, please enjoy the peek of a truly beautiful area.

Aloha from Maui - Day 1

First, Aloha from Maui!

Just to give you some background, this is my first exploration of Maui, and only my second vacation in Hawaii. My parents gave me a trip to Oahu after I graduated college (the first time!) back in 1984. Why haven't I returned? Honestly, island culture didn't instantly grab me the way it does some people.

With all that said, I'm excited to be back! I'm a different person than I was then. It will be interesting to see how I respond to island life this time around. And, I'm thrilled that I get to share the ides of solo traveling with all of you. (SPOILER ALERT: I already hit a bit of a snag! I'll be posting about that later today. Stay tuned!) Given the "silver divorce" rates, (see my article about this in the relationships section) many of us are alone at a stage of life when we probably assumed we'd be coupled-up.

Too many vibrant Boomers are letting divorce hold them back from truly living. I hope to encourage you all to get out there (wherever "there" is for you) and explore the world!
