Kona, Hawaii

Linda's Place: Keaau, Hawaii

When we first pulled up to Linda's house after driving down a lonely road into the middle of the Hawaiian jungle, I wondered if staying 5 nights here would be a few too many. It seemed remote and the property was almost being swallowed by the surrounding brush.

The Netherlands

The Zeeland (meaning sea-land) area of the lowlands plays out like a fairytale. Just peer in any window and you'll find lace curtains, clogs, porcelain kitten figurines and bouquets of wildflowers.
