Travel is such a great opportunity to make new friends, learn new things and have new experiences. BOLT has been doing just that. Our time on the Hawaiian Islands was wonderful! I fell in love with banyan trees and learned that these enormous and beautiful trees are found all throughout Aisa and the Pacific Islands. Look closely at the pictures and you will see that the roots grow from the top down!
Kathy and I had a grand time on Honolulu. I reconnected with my dear friend, Natasha, and we made a new friend, Keoni. Be sure to visit his place, Gaia Metaphysical Center, when in Honolulu.
In Kauai we had a little excitement. A two and a half mile tubing trip down an old sugar plantation irrigation ditch. We were surrounded by lush green jungle, went through pitch black tunnels and came out to look at jewel like sky. Just enough adventure for two Black Old Lesbians Traveling.
We’ve been on the ship for 5 days since Hawaii. The seas have been quite rough. I found out that rough seas turn the pool into a wave pool. A lot of fun and I usually have it all to myself.
50% of our crew is Indonesian and I am loving learning more about their nation. The put on a show last night with traditional and popular song and dance from Sumatra, Bali and Java. It was so moving when they sang their nation anthem and announced that they are celebrating 70 years of independence from Holland! I’m even learning a little Indonesian.
