Yesterday, we explored the volcano at Haleakala National Park.
This is Hawaii's only volcano that has been dormant since the 17th century.

The drive up was scenic, but met with high winds - gusts of 50mph to be exact. The mountain goes up to an elevation of just about 10,023ft, so expect your ears too pop the entire way.
Also expect the wind to be so strong that it can knock you over if you try to stand and take pictures, slam a car door on your fingers, and possibly blow the plastic windows of your Jeep out, or even the glass ones.
Also expect it to be cold! We weren't prepared for that, so we had to stop at one of the visitors centres to grab some long sleeve shirts, and luckily we already had ponchos that we had purchased from hours before. It was at the visitors centre that we found out that there are only 13 consonants in the Hawaiian alphabet, to which my response was, "We have 27 in the mainland," which was met with laughter and high fives from the staff. They also informed us that there were people there who did not know that Hawaii is a US state. o_O

And if we didn't realise just how serious the winds were, we sure did when we tried to get back down and out of the park, and came across a fallen tree blocking the only entrance and exit.
There were people just standing there inspecting(as you can see from the photo below). Some even tried to pull the tree up with their bare hands! But no one alerted a park ranger, so we turned around, went back up to the visitors centre and did so, and they had the tree removed within minutes. We also got confirmation of what we had already suspected: no one else had alerted the park rangers to the fallen tree. So we were the heroes for the day, besides the guy who removed the tree, of course ;-)

Despite all, a fantastic day, and one for the memory books.

At first when I saw this campaign surface, I thought they were trying to make it look like it was actually an apron. But this makes it all better though =)

Story

Labor Omnia Vincit
Introduction
Self-proclaimed GreEngineeress.

First off, when it comes to my posts: "Give me liberty, or give me death."
I like to post what I like, and you have no right to tell me what to, or HOW to post. Got that? Good!

This quote succinctly depicts how I live my life:

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms."
― Henry David Thoreau, Walden: Or, Life in the Woods

I am a FOODIE. A serious epicurist. If I do not post about food in any given week, send help.

I am also a wine snob. If I do not post about wine in any given week, send help.

I also have a serious case of the WANDERUSTS. If I haven't made a travel post in 6mths or more, send help.

I am determined to learn everything there is to learn in my lifetime. A quote I coined is "Learning. Til Death do us Part." And that is true for all of us. We never stop learning. Even those of us who think they are of higher intellect than the rest still have something to learn everyday. Strive to be Happy I always say. And learning new things is one of the things that makes me very happy. So I will continue to seek knowledge.

Something I always go by every single day just to give you some pre-insight: "The attitude you operate at, is the altitude you'll fly at." -Me

I have been called an "ambivert" by Hassan Shabbir. An ambivert, is someone who has the personalities of both an introvert and an extrovert. I have my extrovert moments, that I need because I LOVE to meet new people and bounce ideas and vibes off of them. My introvert moments are for when I need to recharge my social butterfly batteries. :-)

Please note: To love me is to know me. Not the other way around. If you are unsure of anything at all, ASK ME. Do not assume or misjudge me. And please always be honest with me. Honesty is the trait I value the most in people. Lie to me, assume the worst about me or misjudge me and you will be dropped faster than a Hot Pocket. With me, what you see, is what you get. That will never change.

As soon as I know more "About Me," I will enlighten you with it here, but if there is anything else you would like to know, just ASK.

My boyfriend and I came here to celebrate his 10th anniversary of working at Google. I prefer restaurants that serve meals that are representative of their culture. Meals that are enjoyed in the homes of their people. None of the top chef infusion invention mess. And this restaurant did not disappoint when it came to any of that. The beef kitfo and dulet were superb, the lamb GLORIOUS. Food was good quality for the dime spent. Would visit over and over again.

Can I tell you about how this place saved my life tonight??! First off, DO NOT come here only slightly hungry. You have to plan your visit here for a day in which you will not eat anything before you arrive. Read on to see why. Not only is this place impeccably decorated, their waiters are very hospitable and efficient. I read two reviews that said the service here was slow. No no no. My boyfriend and I did the "all you can eat," and I had gotten up to go to the side dishes buffet table. When I got back to our table, there was meat there, ALREADY waiting for me. This was within 5mins of us getting there. My boyfriend finished his soda and someone was there to replace it even before he could put his empty glass back down. There was also another waiter who made sure we had fresh plates whenever we finished eating at each turn. These people do not hold back on the serving of meat! You have to turn your card to red to say "Uncle!," or else they will keep on coming with it. By the end of the night, my boyfriend and I had consumed 7lbs of meat each, and were both tipping to one side. They also had a very good wine selection. The wine I had was called "Predator," a very smooth red that complimented all the gamey meats very well. From the sauces to compliment each meat to the friendly host who seated us, I give this place a 20 out of 10. I strongly recommend a visit here especially if you are from out of town. Your taste buds, and your stomach, will thank you.
