Shadow Seeker // Honolulu, Hawaii // 08/2012 // Four years ago; too vain to wear my hair in a ponytail. Hawaii is a surfers’ paradise for a reason. “It’s windy, it’ colourful, it’s overwhelming.” When my parents asked me what I wanted for graduation I was immediately sure: I wanna visit @jayceeuch in Hawaii. I spent two amazing weeks with her and her family in Honolulu. It was my first trip oversees on my own and I can still remember every moment. I had met Jaycee as a 13-year old teenager when she was on her Europe trip and was matched up by chance with my family for a three day homestay. 5 years later I visited her in Hawaii. I still can’t wait for her to return to Austria. Lots of good memories with my dear friend @jayceeuch and her amazing family. On my numerous adventures I have always been most impacted by the people I have met. I am so unbelievable lucky to have met you. You’ve left traces on my memory and captured my heart.
