Sorry my posting was sparse during the past week – I was in Hawaii!! Sunny days, balmy nights, beaches that looks as if they were lifted straight out of a postcard… in short, Hawaii did not disappoint.
My 5-day vacation in Hawaii cost me around $800, which is much lower than I could have hoped. This vacation was relatively inexpensive because 1. I stayed with a friend instead of getting a hotel, 2. I didn’t pay for several meals because my friend insisted on treating me. (Must repay the favor when I’m the hostess!), and 3. Bought my plane tickets 5 months in advance.
Although temptation was in every single store in Waikiki, I was pretty proud of myself for resisting the plethora of carved coconut shell figurines, nacre and pearl jewelry, and plumeria-print dresses. I got some cookies from Honolulu Cookie Company, a $10 sarong for me, and a $30 t-shirt for CB. Well, then there’s the food and fun in the sun. I ate out every night, took hula lessons, swam with the fishes, and beach-hopped all day.
Now I’m itching to go back (or at least, plan my next big adventure).
But while I was gone… how about the economy?!
