Aloha 'Oe

We decided to take a family vacation this year, our first proposed destination was Athens, Greece. With all the unrest, we decided against Greece. Instead, we opted for Hawaii. Several reasons prompted us to come to this conclusion:
  • Unrest to me means violence and I'm not up for that on vacation
  • 7 hours flight time compared to 11 hours
  • No passport needed to travel to Hawaii. Problematic when hubby travels!
  • Less expensive???
So we packed our bags and left for 16 days in paradise. After an overnight stay in San Francisco, we arrived in Honolulu then proceeded to Waikiki Marriott Beach & Spa Resort.

So much had changed in the 15 years since the last time we were there before children. But it was still beautiful.

While we were there we visited Pearl Harbor. It was the second time I have been there and it is just as moving as the first time.

We ended up going to the Big Island and left from Kona. We all had a great time.
