This is to follow on with my last blog about my tour here in Iraq. I hve decided what to do for my period of leave. If you have not been following and don't know about the military leave program, basically if you are deploying here for over 270 days you get a 15 day leave to go home and spend time with the family. I originally stated that my wife was really wanting to go to the beach and I was wanting to do nothing more than relax at the house. Understaning that there will probably be multiple people wanting to come visit, and wanting me to visit them, me and my wife decided that a get-a-way vacation would probably be best. (To my family that reads this, dont worry I'm still going to come visit).
I have made reservations to go to Hawaii. Thats right, what we originally planned to be just a simple trip to the beach to get away turned into a major trip to Kauai, Hawaii. I booked through expedia and for the exchange of price we ended up stuck on 18 hours of transit to get there, for about $400 less dollars. Im not really happy abou tthis as I will be spending about 20 hours in transit from Iraq to the States, the several days later another 18 hours to get to Hawaii and then the return trips to get back, but it will be worth it. I reserved a decent hotel "Sheraton Kauai Resort" for 5 nights, and also a rental car to get around. I really look forward to this.
My only problem now is trying to figure out what we will be doing once we get there. If there is anyone out there that is familiar with Kauai and has any recommendations let me know. I already plan on a few things, snorkeling, swimming, checking out some lagoon that is close by, but havent really had alot of time to research the area for other fun or romantic activities. Especially since this will be for our one year anniversary.
This trip will eat up about one week of my time still leaving plenty of time for my family, friends, and finally a little rest.
As always thanks to those that are supporting us over here, and I'll see you all in the next blog.
