Aloha Oahu!

So, it’s our final night in Honolulu–and what a trip it has been! Tonight, we went to Oceanarium and it was delicious. We had no idea what we were getting into other than it was in the hotel with the big aquarium. Turns out, it was an awesome buffet. On the way back to our home away from home–the Ilikai–we stumbled upon a Stevie Wonder concert! He was performing a private concert at an...

Hawaiian Vacation: Day 10

I have completely lost track of days and dates. We booked several excursions at the start of our trip and I had to repeatedly check our tickets each day to make sure we didn’t miss one.

I can’t say that I’m committing to a daily blog, but I’m going to do my best to keep up to date on the activities as quickly after they occur as possible.

Hawaii 2013: A Family Vacation

Our annual family vacation is my Dad, a couple of my cousins, and myself. In the quest to find the cheapest and most accommodating flight, we’ve tried everything. See, I’m in MD, my Dad’s in NJ, and my cousins are in VA. We’ve tried flying out of our respective airports—Richmond, Baltimore, and Newark. We’ve tried taking the train to NJ and then flying out on separate flights. But this year is different. We decided...
