World Globe and Custom Cake

November 29th, 2014 | by kirbyfukunaga

20 years ago i bought this globe. and ever since, i must have looked at it over a thousand of times. this is how i decide trips sometimes. i just look at it, find a little dot, and go there.
i’m eying out south/east asia again. want to go somewhere i haven’t been before. in the past 2 days, i shot out emails to yoga retreats, surf camps, friends, and world travelers. i’ll be going soon but i still have no idea where. nothing new as i’ll probably decide a day before. a trip with surf/yoga/dive and explore would be ideal. let me know if you know anywhere i’m missing. thank you!
and please, i’m not going anywhere cold. no way! can you believe this is america?
was so proud of my niece Temari when she made our thanksgiving dessert. cinnamon with pumpkin with walnuts with whip cream. it was excellent!
all handmade with love.
and speaking of love, i love my 2 nieces. Kelia and Temari same blood but 2 worlds apart. both so beautiful and both so good at what they do.

always love to surf with Kelia. she’s heading to china this weekend to defend her back to back world championships. win or lose, we are always proud of this girl. style, grace, and a big heart full of aloha. Go-Kelia!

Isaiah on the SUP. just 2 days ago he barely advanced to the 2nd round of the world cup at sunset beach. i’m sure he will step it up and come out on top in the next day of competition.

Takami-san hasn’t surfed waikiki in over 20 years. and after getting smashed by a SUP right when she got out, i could understand why she didn’t come back, and will probably never come back. haha.
