sharing a holiday … day 8 in hawaii

Day 8 was the last day of our holiday, and time for another ‘drive yourself around’ day … we hired a Ford Escape, and did a last day of ‘wandering’ togther. Both of us were a little tired from our big ‘inter-island hop’ on Day 7, so we got up when we woke up and […]

sharing a holiday … day 5 in hawaii

Today was a good day … a lazy, ‘what shall we do today’ sort of day! A day of breakfast on the terrace, a drive round the island, checking out the (not so) big surf, and finishing off with dinner at The Cheesecake Shop. We decided to have breakfast down on the terrace in style […]

Day 3 we visited Pearl Harbour … one thing you can’t ‘order’ when you are on holidays is the weather, and it was a cool, overcast day. We didn’t let that spoil the day though, and in Hawaii, rain only seemed to last ten minutes at the most, so it was all good. [a public […]

sharing a holiday …

Can you guess where I have been? Over the last eight days, I have flown over 16,000 kilometres (10,000 miles), driven around an island at least four times, stood in a tropical ‘sun shower’, eaten new foods, watched several sunsets from 27 floors up in a hotel, learned how to ‘tip’, escaped being sunburnt, met […]
