California really is the perfect time zone. When you travel, your internal clock is already set to enjoy your destination to the fullest. When you go to New York, you’re still awake when it’s really late there. If you go to a jazz club after dinner and stay out until midnight, it only feels like 9pm. Since New York City is such a late city, you’ve got plenty of company when you’re out late. In the morning, who cares that you’re not up until 10. Anything you could have done at 8am you can do later in the day. But the late-night vibe, you don’t want to miss that.
We are in Hawaii right now, and coming from California works just like going to New York only in reverse. While you go to Manhattan for the excitement and night life, you go to Hawaii for the sunshine and relaxation. The restaurants don’t even serve dinner after 9pm. Who cares though, you’d rather sleep when the sun sleeps and get up at 6 when it gets up. After all, that’s what you’re here for.
