We're heading to Hawaii. Woohoo. I'm so glad to be planning a trip.
It happened so fast. It was just last weekend that I decided on a whim to check and see what the airfare was to Hawaii in early December. I suspect I probably got an email from Alaska or saw some alert. I pulled up Kayak and surprise! Airfare was just around $325 RT to Honolulu. Wow!
Next I pulled up VRBO to see what was available. I started looking at the low cost rentals and came across this studio on the windward side of Oahu. Okay... it is on the rainy 'rain forest' side but we like the jungle. I spoke with the owner on Wednesday and we had a great conversation. The owner also had another studio available on the North Shore in a former nursery but we decided to go with this studio. Hopefully it won't be too rainy. If it is - we'll see some great waterfalls - and we can drive to a sunnier location.
I'm excited. We have never been to Oahu and it will be fun to explore a new island. We're hoping it will be less expensive on Oahu than Maui. I've already found a couple of gardens to explore along with some hikes.
