Being on the Road... (27) Kauai Island, Hawai'i

We arrived to Lihue on Monday. Our coming here has been kind of magical. Call it force, universe, God, whatever you want to call it, but that force pulled us over to this magical side of the world.

Some of you may remember, I had mentioned in one of my previous blog posts that we decided to go to Costa Rica for our honeymoon because we couldn't afford Hawaii. (http://www.arzuozev.blogspot.com.tr/2015/12/review-on-costa-rica.html) We loved it there too; but Kauai is something else..

When we were thinking about going to Hawaii back then, I contacted my friend Petra, who lives in Kauai island.  She is a cheerful, beautiful, angelic spirit. She was very excited when she heard that we were coming, so was I!.. And after my little research about the prices in Hawai'i, I told her that we weren't going to be able to make it over there this year. Right after that, she took charge and she literally arranged everything for us to go. She found us a discount ticket and asked one of her friends' if he could host us at his place. Petra's friend Star hasn't only offered us his guest house, he also landed us one of his cars and he offered us to pick vegetables from his organic garden and citrus from his trees... (And the weather has been so amazing all week long, which we will discover later on!) :)) Doesn't this all seem kind of celestial to you?.. Beautiful people on this island... 

And indeed it's been a magical week... For the first time in my life, I felt that I found a place I could totally feel comfortable living... Kindest people, organic food, amazing nature, incredible weather, sacred vibes... Even though we will have to leave in a few days, I feel like this is just the beginning...

I haven't seen other islands but Kauai definitely has a sacred side to it. The energy here is so strong, feminine and high. With its breathtaking nature, kind people, tropical fruits, access to local, organically grown food, aloha spirit this island stole our heart from the day one...  

Petra took us to mesmerizing Wailua Region right after she picked us up from the airport.

Day 2 

I woke up to one of the most sacred mornings in my life... We arrived to Princeville after dawn and we couldn't see much of the surroundings. I couldn't believe my eyes when I woke up. I was in heaven... I meditated in the garden, what else could I do?..

Today was our day out discovering the beaches on the north shore :))

We met Petra at Hanalei Bay and took a walk at sunset. Did you see the smiling moon?  Isn't it poetic?.. 

Day 3 

Oranges and lemons from the garden, rambutan from your friends' orchard, papaya and avocados from the farmers' market... Too good to be true!.. 

Our breakfast this morning was papaya and orange banana cashew nut & macadamia smoothie. And we were ready to discover the best beaches of Kauai! :))
