Travel Scientist: Hawaii

In 2015 I quit my 9-5 job, gave all my"stuff" away, and moved to Hawaii! I was fed up with the rat race and was in despite need to run free! The Universe gifted me with a contract job in Molokai, Hawaii over 4,500 miles away!

Molokai, also known as the Friendly Isle, is one of 8 Hawaiian islands in the central Pacific. On the island's Kalaupapa Peninsula is a steep path leading to Kalaupapa National Historical Park, an isolated former leper colony below the towering cliffs.  Nearby, the park's Phallic Rock is said to have fertility powers. Molokai is a magical untouched paradise with only one street light and average 7500 inhabitants. I lived on Molokai for nine months and it was one of the most amazing experience of my life.
