Car accident All right, this report will be out of order. I won’t go chronological. This morning I had a car accident. Nothing bad, don’t worry. My neighbor and I were driving to work this morning when the ambulance was coming. The woman in front of us got scared and stopped abruptly. We had full speed (which is, this time luckily, very slow in Hawai’i) But still we weren’t able to stop right in time. So, boom, we crashed into the car in front of us. One scary moment. I never had that before. You are sitting there and can’t do anything. Nothing really happened. Both cars have small damages, but nothing major. Anyways, the woman wanted to call the police. But, of course, they did not show up, so that we could leave. They will ... read more

So I´m back in Hawaii and I just wanted to give a little (although very belated) closure to my summer events. I spent the last month of my trip in a town called Ojo de Agua with the man who is now my boyfriend. His family opened their door and their hearts to me. While I was there, we went to the pyramids which were absolutely amazing, visited the city, crammed on to a very crowded metro, drank pulque, ate tamales de piña, taught his sister the bad words in english, went horseback riding, hung out with their hairless dog, watched their other dog have puppies, buckled up in a buggie, and numerous other adventures. We also made our way to Puerto Escondido which was probably the part of México I would most likely move to. ... read more

So as I said yesterday-today-whatever, I'm now in Hawaii and in Queenstown NZ at the same time. That date line makes things interesting. Anyway, Just thought I'd post for the novelty value. Hawaii is nice and warm and sunny and soon I'll head down to the beach and go for a swim. It was pretty crowded earlier so hopefully it thins out a bit as the afternoon progresses. Oh and I'm off to the Big Island on Wednesday to see some volcanoes and stuff. Can't wait! :D... read more

The rest of my weekend... As I told you it wasn't too exciting. Saturday I actually studied a lot. I wotked on my Finance project. Unfortunately, I couldn't find some preferred stock, which I need for my calculations. I will try to find the right data today. Ok, I know, for most of you guys this doesn't mean anything right now. But that's cool. Saturday evening I spent with my neighbor Lucas. He is a nice guy. We talked, watched TV and played dart. I never do that, but I got so competitive about it that it was extremly funny. I was standing next to him: You can't make it. You know you won't hit it. Uhhh, that was bad. You don't have a chance... I had fun. When I won I got so excited ... read more

Guten Morgen! ;-) Ok, it’s 11 already. I am sitting at school and I will study soon. But first of all I take some time to inform you guys. I write today, because I have a study weekend in front of me, so that I won’t do anything exciting this weekend. Maybe beach tomorrow. But I had a good start in the weekend. Thursday night I went out with Jenny, Maggy und Mimi. Maggy is an extremely pretty girl from Austria and Mimi is an extremely cute girl from Sweden. We went to a poetry event. Ok, most auf you are now sitting in front f the computer and all you think is: That’s sooo boring! Listen to poetry. Who is actually doing that? Hey, I didn’t believe it, but it is cool. Everybody can go ... read more

Well tomorrow we move on again so heres the next blog already! I am actually a bit dissapointed with Honolulu (Waikik Beach). The beach isnt great and there are so many people around! The beach is so over crowded and there are surfers and surf boards everywhere! I think we were spoilt with Fiji. We've been told that to see the real beauty of Hawaii you need to visit the islands but we're very short on cash now so we had to stay put in Honolulu - Waikiki Beach, which is a shame but hey, we cant do it all can we!? The holiday here started on a bit of a downer too - when we arrived into Honolulu airport we were waiting for our bags when I hear my name called out. I speak to ... read more

This post is going to be on a hodge podge of things about Honolulu which may help our visitors experience various aspects of Hawaii. Waikiki where 90% of the tourists usually stay at, is a town within a town have numerous shops and restrarants, where they need never leave to enjoy their stay there. However, they may want to venture out of their comfort zone and experience a little more of the real Honolulu. Perhaps a suggestion would be to hop on the #19, 20 or 42 bus for a short trip to Ala Moana Shopping Center, or further up the Blvd. to the Ward Shopping Complex which includes Ward Warehouse, Ward Centre, Consolidated Theatres, Famers Market and Sports Authority. About 2 blocks up towrds the Mountains from Ala Moana SC, is the Walmart and Sams ... read more

Aloha! Another one of my weekend reports. During the week it doesn’t really make sense to write something, because there is nothing going on. I am at school… Unless, of course, you guys want to know the newest events on the stock market or you want to know some crazy stuff about the law in the US. I am in a business law class right now, which is really interesting. Seriously, you can sue everybody for everything here. (a woman sued because a dancer told her that she has the potential to become a good dancer. She sued after she realized that she, after taking several classes, was only an average dancer. Well, she won. The dancer should have known better- hello, he only said that there is a potential…) Ok, back to my weekend. It ... read more

Note to readers: if you are on a plane landing at Kahluhi Airport in Maui at 4pm, do not reserve a room in West Maui. The traffic is unendurable! That said, if you’re going to be in bumper to bumper traffic for 90 minutes, in Maui you at least have scenery to look at. The West Maui Mountains are the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. And half the time the road runs right along the coast. The surf’s up, gang, and that accounts for some of this traffic mess. I had a room at a Bed and Breakfast in the old whaling town of Lahainia. It turned out that this particular B&B has a two bedroom suite for “Grandma” and when demand is up, they rent out Grandma’s second bedroom. That was my room. It ... read more
