Our Hawaii Vacation

Visiting Hawaii is a trip of a lifetime. It’s something that my husband and I have planned on doing when he retired, but we were lucky to win a trip to the Big Island! We stayed one week, swam, relaxed and took in the sites. The relaxing lifestyle of Hawaii rubbed off on us as we got to know the staff of our hotel. Soon we were saying, “no worries” when something didn’t go the way we planned.

Big Island Hawii Beach View

Although we live in Florida, there’s nothing like the beaches of Hawaii. They are so gorgeous that sometimes I thought I was dreaming when I looked at them. Our hotel had a huge lobby that was open to the pool area and the beach. Most of the restaurant had just a roof over it. Our room overlooked the pool and beach. No matter where we were at the hotel, we had a view of the beach. And believe me it was magnificent!

We visited some local restaurants, a seahorse farm, a nearby resort, shops, a number of beaches and drove up the mountain roads. We woke up early, took a nap in the middle of the day and stayed up late. We took suggestions from the staff that we came to know about what to see and what to avoid.

We definitely plan on another trip to Hawaii. We learned some things to make our next trip more enjoyable, if that’s possible.

Tips for a Hawaii Vacation

  • Break up your flight to Hawaii (depending on your starting point, of course). Stop in Las Vegas or California and spend some time there, then finish your flight there and back home. The jet lag we had from flying to Hawaii to Florida in one day was pretty bad.
  • Stay at least a full week. If you want to see the sights, you’ll need time. If you want to relax, it will take time to get comfortable.
  • Make sure the Luau you attend is authentic – pig roasted in the ground. Do your research in advance or ask your travel agent.
  • Go with the flow. The weather in Hawaii can change suddenly. Have some indoor activities planned.
  • Take tons of photos and videos.
