I Am…

As a refresher, below is the “Where Am I?” riddle from yesterday’s blog post.

It’s no ordinary day, that’s for sure,
for when you arrive, there’s an airy lure
After a while, it can feel mundane, just another routine,
been there, done that: The same old scene
Our imagination springs to life, where else?
‘Wait, do I still have my belt?’
You’ve dreamt about it, thought about it, realize time is running fast,
oh, here and there would be a blast in this world so vast
My seat is comfortable, everyone around me focused and calm,
all before I sink into reality, yet my mind is stuck on Guam
The final clue is all that awaits, for it’s up to you to cope,
with that board staring back, winking at you with some entertaining hope… 

Where am I?

I am…

sitting at a gate waiting to board a flight to a destination all too familiar and regular. All the while I’m finding myself locked on the departures screen, day-dreaming about a new and exotic destination at the Hollywood Burbank Airport, which is most famously regarded as Bob Hope Airport.

And yes, there are flights from Bob Hope Airport to luxurious beach resorts in Guam.

Where Am I?

Let’s play a game! More specifically, how about a riddle?   

It’s no ordinary day, that’s for sure,
for when you arrive, there’s an airy lure
After a while, it can feel mundane, just another routine,
been there, done that: The same old scene
Our imagination springs to life, where else?
‘Wait, do I still have my belt?’
You’ve dreamt about it, thought about it, realize time is running fast,
oh, here and there would be a blast in this world so vast
My seat is comfortable, everyone around me focused and calm,
all before I sink into reality, yet my mind is stuck on Guam
The final clue is all that awaits, for it’s up to you to cope,
with that board staring back, winking at you with some entertaining hope…

Where am I?

The answer will be revealed tomorrow!

Where Am I?

The sun is shining, with gorgeous views,
the water glistens and sparkles, with a hue so blue
Then all of a sudden, a torrential storm will pop-up,
raining enough to fill more than one shaking cup
Detached from the daily grind it is, an envious trait,
be sure to apply sunscreen and bring along some bait
But beware of the sharks, as well as this dangerous park,
their footprints leave terrifying, scream-worthy marks
Don’t think so literally, let your imagination sway,
now take a deep breath and enjoy your playful lay by the bay!

I am in…

Kaua’i!

Used for filming the 1993 cinematic masterpiece Jurassic Park and scenes in the 2015 box office champion Jurassic World, Kaua’i is a breathtakingly beautiful destination, with or without genetically-engineered dinosaurs. As one of the Hawaiian islands, it’s a spectacular place to vacation. Allowing the sights and sounds to overwhelm you is a well worth the price of the airline ticket and journey to the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

Aside from Jurassic Park, Kaua’i is also where my family and I met Pierce Brosnan waiting in line at a local lunch spot! And yes, he was 007-level cool. Hawaii is a special place for me, and this island in particular. It’s been a wonderful destination and the halfway point in flying to Australia. Just simply incredible.

And Kaua’i is where I am so often when daydreaming…
