The election is stressing out the country, so you should probably head to Hawaii and here’s why, according to HuffPost Hawaii writer, Carla Herreria.
“People are talking about moving to Canada, millennials are considering casting their votes for a giant meteor and right when it feels like things can’t get worse, they always do,” writes Herreria.
She notes that we, as a country, need a vacation.
“Hawaii is the most isolated population center on the planet, so when you need to get away from it all, the Aloha State is the ultimate place. Plus, you don’t even need to leave the country,” she points out.
Herreria also points out that Hawaii is a land of extremes.
“While you search for zen, you can spend your time staring at the extreme abundance of gorgeous islands features: rainbows, waterfalls, and palm trees that sway gently in a warm breeze,” she recommends.
As if that’s not enough, turn to an Hawaii’s endless adventure opportunities.
“If beautiful landscapes and yoga breathing don’t get your mind off the current state of the country, you can get your adrenaline pumping by skydiving over the islands, swimming with sharks or hiking Kauai’s stunning Kalalau Trail,” she writes.
