There is something almost mystical about journeying far away from home. Somehow, the further it is, the more exotic it seems to be. When I lived in a tourist town, I rarely visited the local sites except when out-of-town company arrived. While visiting far away places, many of us feel we must take in the local attractions as this may be our only chance to do so. The two-day flight to Hawaii, afforded me time to think. Reflecting on my life as an exotic journey, I became more aware of new perspectives.
