Growing up Marshaleese

When most people think of their childhood, they think of snowy winters, block parties, movie theaters, and holiday pageants. When I think of my childhood, I think of celebrating the Chinese New Year by snaking around school in a dragon, sitting in my orange bouy while my dad went snorkeling for shells, the outdoor theater where giant crabs ruled, and tons of beach parties where the neighborhood came. That's what life was like for me in the 80's growing up on Kwajalein.

Where is Kwajalein Anyways?

My favorite way of describing the location of Kwajalein is 'say you were to draw a triangle from Hawaii, Japan, and Australia... in the bottom-righthand portion of that triangle would be the Marshall Islands

Beatiful Local

The best thing about Kwajalein is the setting. You have a sparsely vegetated island with beautiful sand beaches amidst some of the clearest waters in the world. I am all about beaches and I'd have to say this is the world's best!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Life is simple on Kwajalein
  • Cons:Life is simple on Kwajalein
  • In a nutshell:A great place if you want to get away from it ALL!

    Wow I am jealous, I spent the 80's life guarding at the town pool, ok more like town swamp while you were in the Marshall islands? Life can be so cruel. I will have some pictures one of these days so check back!! Bryan

    I went to Samoa and must say that every island (-state) is so different from the other ones. Nice pics. What exactly made you go to the Marshall Islands?
