Goodbye 20's, Hello 30!

Yesterday was the last day of my 20's, and I spent it doing something I've always wanted to do: traveling to Madeira, Portugal. I've always wanted to go because my grandmother's family emigrated from Funchal, Madeira all the way to Hawai'i sometime in the 1860s-1870s.

We arrived yesterday and explored the area around our hotel. I love how everything on this island just wants to thrive. Everywhere you look, there are fruit and flowers growing freely, enhancing the scenery and perfuming the air.

Today, when I woke up and remembered where I am, I realized that being here is truly a "bucket list" item for me. And what better way to ring in 30 than to do something you've always dreamed of doing?
