Revisiting these photos from my January trip a few months back. I just love the natural geography of Hawaii. The enchanting quality of it really makes it feel like it was meant to be home. I can see the many reasons why the Hawaiian culture was heavily influenced by the surroundings and seems deeply connected to the land.
The Hawaiians were so benevolent, kindhearted, and there was a great sense of community among the locals. Being immersed in a new culture gave me some perspective on Los Angeles culture. While I’m blessed to be living in one of the most coveted city around the world, I’ve grown to have a greater appreciation for peaceful places with nature.
In the land of the tropics, where all things in nature grow quickly and in plenty, I got a taste of nature therapy. Strolling through the lush greenery, my mind felt restored and my body was reenergized.
I deeply desire to return to Hawaii soon again.
