It is no secret that I recently spent a week on Kauai Island in Hawaii. I was so fortunate to go on this vacation because my brother got married. It was the perfect reason to purchase a plane ticket and disappear for the week. As I mentioned before I enjoy being as active as possible so am always seeking the activities that will allow me to experience the beauty of a new place while also allowing me to feel good about myself. In Hawaii I did just that!

The next morning I woke up and prepared myself for surfing lessons. Five of us, including my little nephew, hopped in the car and headed over to the beach not fully understanding what we got into. If you haven't surfed before, you should know that it is hours of doing push-ups and for beginners, flopping off the board into the water. Doing the push ups on the board, while on the beach, is fairly simple. Try doing that over and over with waves making the board unstable! Not only that, you have to manage your surfboard... Oh and climbing on the board and being knocked around by the waves. It took me many days to recover from the surfing experience but an experience I can call very memorable. I certainly was NOT a natural at surfing but my nephew sure was!

The following days were filled with wedding activities, tubing, shopping, snorkeling, swimming and more shopping. Oh, and eating lots of cookies. I think it is fair to say my digestive system got as much of a workout as my body on this vacation. Would I change anything? Absolutely not! What a great way to celebrate a great couple...
Next time you are on vacation, try a new activity! It might just be one of the highlights of your trip!!!
