Gone Exploring

One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things. –Henry Miller

Last Saturday, after a few errands around town, I decided to holoholo. It was a beautifully sunny day in Hilo; nice and hot and a good time to check out places I’ve never visited before. I’ve lived in Hilo for a total of 14 years and believe it or not, there are still some places I’ve never been. Roaming around doesn’t necessarily cost a thing, so I charged up my trusty phone and ducked into a few new/old places.

Free moments to explore this city with fresh eyes are few and far between, but when I do have the opportunity, I take in surroundings like it’s my first visit. Hilo is large enough that you can actually get away with gallivanting without being recognized. No one really pays mind here, which is great because you can immerse yourself in the process of discovery without being disturbed.
