We didn’t do a lot of sightseeing, and I really didn’t take a lot of photos. Mostly I think because the landscape was so familiar, it just looks like Cairns – mountains, green, rain, water. I also spent more time just being there, rather than documenting the whole experience. I thought I’d take many more photos and video, but turns out I didn’t want to see the whole conference through lens.
The food was both familiar and strange in Hawai’i.
I’m not sure how to write this post, as I’m not really a traveller, but I’m just going to start. It’s been a few days since I got home, and if I don’t do this now, I’ll have completely lost any travel blogging mojo I might have.
It’s 8.50pm on Sunday in Hawai’i, and here I am blogging for the first time in how many days?!?!? I can’t believe it. I had intended to write each day but I’m afraid, each night this week I had either ran out of internet connection, energy or reliable cords, so it just didn’t happen.
Just quickly reflecting on conference presentations, particularly ones that describe institutional programs.
So after a few delays in the flight (four delay departing Brisbane & one hour delay departing Nadi) I finally arrived at 2am this morning. After an hour or so getting through customs, I found my way to the hotel. How good is it to be horizontal after so many hours sitting? This morning (up and around at 8.30am) involves just trying to stay active and awake so I can have a good sleep tonight.
I’m off to the World Indigenous People’s Conference on Eduction today. I fly out in a few hours. I hate flying, but there’s no other way to get there. Except by boat. But I watched the Poseidon Adventure when I was a kid so there’s no way I’m doing that!
I’ve finally updated my YouTube channel.
