Ah, Hilo

My new job doesn’t take me to the exotic, international destinations that my old job did, but it is taking me to Hilo next month. So, I’m taking my whole family. Jen and the kids for a whole, glorious, lazy, three-day Big Island trip, but my mother and brother as well for a one-day pilgrimage to our ancestral stomping grounds in North Kohala.

Airline tickets in the works, minivan reserved, hotel accommodations arranged. I can smell the sharp volcanic air and taste the loco moco already. I can’t wait.
