North Shore, Oahu, Hawaii (map)
Now that we are back to living a more typical adult life these days, I have to remind myself that we still need to be silly sometimes and have fun like kids. Life is too short to focus solely on the not so glamorous things we must do as adults such as pay bills and go to work to earn a paycheck.
On our trip around the world there were many times we realized that although we may be in our 30’s, we still feel like kids at heart. We played on playgrounds, we rode bicycles, and honestly what is more childlike than wanting to sleep outside in a tent every night for two-plus months? Okay, so I recognize that not many children would want to “play” camping for that length of time.
In the end, I must say that being a kid at heart can also be extremely entertaining for those around you…don’t we all remember when someone went streaking across the Salt Flats in Bolivia…WAIT, WHAT???
While we did live a more responsible and fully-clothed existence the month we were on Oahu, we managed to have fun like kids while we explored the North Shore.
