Today, I’m going to try something a little different. Maybe a little crazy.
I like to think of myself as a compartmentalized person, but perhaps different areas of my life bleed together more than I care to admit sometimes.
You may be familiar with my travel site. I’ve been growing it since 2007. Well today I’m excited to announce that it is, officially, going away. Much of the content on it is still relevant and useful, but I just don’t have the passion for it that I once had. Frankly, I don’t even like the name and maintaining it has become more trouble than its worth.
So, to switch things up, I’m going to do something potentially reckless. I’m going to start posting my travel videos to MYTHLI. Even crazier, I’m going to gradually move all of my travel articles over to this site, back-dated and improved, to work over here. While I’ll be killing off byteful.com, the old links will still redirect, so nothing will be lost in this transition. In fact, it’s a beautiful consolidation.
This is not as strange as it sounds. Travel has always inspired my fiction, and considering my 2nd Book heavily features a tropical environment, it is my hope that the video that I share with you today is imminently relevant (or at the very least, enjoyable). Consider that if it weren’t for my time on Hawaii, The Island on the Edge of Forever would have never been written. (Incidentally, today is the 1 year anniversary of my departure from the Big Island, and then I felt this come through yesterday, completely unpremeditated. Coincidence?)
So enjoy today’s video of Hawaii from the air and two LOVELY hula dancers I had the pleasure of watching perform in the Kona Airport.
It’s 81 seconds of island chillaxification. Enjoy:
