What I learned about Kauai
Random Hawaii facts
Tribal tattoos are NEVER considered a fad of the past.
Seriously they were on every one, man woman, teens! You name it!
Random Fact #2: All bikinis sold in Kauai have no BOTTOMS to the butt part of the swimsuit. Saw LOTS of cheeks on the beach. Gahhh

Kauai has a two lane highway that doesn't go all the way around the island. This is a traffic nightmare in my opinion!
People are NOT in any hurry. People don't honk, give the finger or even speed. I kid you not! The hubs and I were in shock when we stalled at a green light for a few seconds after it had turn green! No one got "angry."
Kauai has only 60,000 people that live there.
They have ONE walmart. ONE!
There is NO mall. They have a Macys. That's it!
Gas is ridiculously expensive. It was 4.69 when we were there.
Although beautiful, and great for a vacation, I quickly knew that I could never "Live" on an island such as Hawaii. The fear of something happening really freaked me out. You can't just leave so to speak. You're stuck! I remember reading about a few bloggers that live in Hawaii explaining how panicked the island became when they had the after math of the Japan Tsunami was supposedly going to affect the Hawaiian Islands.
Any of you ever experience these or notice these things if you've been to Kauai?
