#SoaringScores #catchup
Kauai is one of my favorite places & this book is a favorite too. It‘s about the author‘s #JourneyToTheIsland to work at the National Tropical Botanical Gardens there. 🌺

BarbaraBB I must get there one day. Still on my bucketlist.... 1mo
CrowCAH I agree Kauai is beautiful! 1mo

Maarten and his wife move to a small equatorial Pacific Island due to his wife‘s new job. Right away, Maarten realizes life on an island is way different than life in the states. This is a funny exploration of learning to reshape one‘s life, and yet there‘s an undercurrent of serious issues. I think this is the first of his books - Maarten has written a series of sorts about his family‘s adventures. #JourneyToTheIsland #SoaringScores

ljuliel Excellent book. I‘ve listened to all of his and liked them all. Very funny and entertaining. 1mo
Zelma I enjoyed this one quite a bit. I don‘t know why I haven‘t gone on to read more of his books, but I keep eyeing the one about China. 1mo
CrowCAH I wouldn‘t doubt life in an Island would be different than the city! 1mo
Librarybelle @ljuliel @Zelma I thought this one was so funny! I‘m surprised I haven‘t read more. 1mo

#SoaringScores #CoverBuy #CoverCrush When Beatriz Hanlon agrees to accompany her missionary husband Max to a remote island in the South Pacific she knew there would be challenges. But it isn't just the heat and the damp & the dirt. There are more insects than she could ever have imagined, and the islanders are hostile but it‘s the strange noises that are driving her really mad. Sounds spooky #JourneyToTheIsland 🌴🕷🦗🕸🐜🦋

TrishB Beautiful cover ❤️ 1mo
CrowCAH Attack of the mosquitoes 🦟! 1mo

Day 8 - #JourneyToTheIsland #JurassicPark #SoaringScores

Listen here: https://youtu.be/xn-LE8iwZJk

These helicopter scenes were filmed on the island of Kauai Hawaii. I took a helicopter ride right through there about 20 years ago. Beautiful waterfall!

CrowCAH Though not on a helicopter, but on the bus tour they pointed out the Jurassic Park film areas when I visited Hawaii; really cool! 1mo
Cinfhen I did the Helicopter tour about 25 years ago.....and after I was SO🤢 1mo
EadieB @Cinfhen I have motion sickness and wear my sea bands when I fly or travel on water and it really helps! That is the worst feeling! 1mo

Cinfhen It totally took away from the beauty and enjoyment 😫all I remember 25 years later is that feeling of nausea 😢😢 1mo
EadieB @Cinfhen Sea bands really work and I take them with me whenever I‘m on a trip. I wear them on the plane too because turbulence bothers me too. 1mo
Cinfhen Will try it next time - thanks for the suggestion 1mo
