Family Time. Hawaii.

Sometimes shitty weather is a gift from god. Like a few days ago when I got stuck overnight in San Francisco on an unexpected weather delay. Who says that travel interruptions have to be entirely unpleasant?

Sure, it delayed my arrival to Hawaii, but it did present me with an opportunity to enjoy a night on the town in SFO with some INSEAD friends. Chinese food at Heaven's Dog (I would have been worried if it had been a Korean restaurant). Five star hotel. Not bad.

Following my eventual touchdown in Kona, we headed straight to the beach. It takes all of 30 seconds to get into this place. I remember the first time my parents brought me to Hawaii, I was so captivated by the ocean that I took rolls upon rolls of pictures of the ocean.
I'm still captivated by it. But, I've stopped taking lame pictures of the ocean. What brought me here was not the waves, the warmth or the sunshine. It was quality time with my parents. 
And, though they live only 10km from my house, it was worth every mile to come out here. Something about being removed from the distractions of home frees us to just enjoy each others company.
Thanks Mom and Dad. I look forward to making more memories like this with you every year.
