Island Life in Guam

Hafa Adai!

Pronounced <half a day>, it means “Hello” in Chamorro, the native language of Guam.  Guam is an island in the western Pacific Ocean and  is a US possession.   It lies 13° north of the equator and has an area of 209 square miles.  Since I grew up near the beach in Florida, I became an island girl fairly quickly as did my children.  We didn’t see a lot of my husband as he was deployed on ships and did a tour to Iraq while we were there.  When he was there, we did enjoy trips to Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Thailand, and other Micronesian islands.  I enjoyed going down memory lane recounting the experiences we had in our nearly 3 years in Guam.
