It tells the story of my first solo visit to Hawaii, not long after the death of my husband Terry. I had a chance encounter with a stranger while sitting alone at a bar. As a result, it inspired me to write this post about the sometimes overwhelming kindness of strangers.
A very big thank you to Caitlin Boylan for the opportunity to collaborate. Originally from Vermont, she’s been living globally for seven years. Travel to her is about the people as much as the places. It is about the realization that we are all the same. We all laugh and we all love. We all get sick and a little bit tired.
