My Hawaii Countdown!

73 Days! I did mention briefly in my last post that my mother and I are headed to Hawaii this October, in 73 days to be exact! I’m pretty excited. I love to travel, I have been a few places. I went to Europe about 9 years ago, more recently I’ve been down to the Florida Keys, Chicago, Boston, NYC and the Outer Banks in North Carolina. I’ve never really been to a beach with palm trees. Sounds silly, right? The outer banks were gorgeous, but it wasn’t your picturesque white sandy beaches. The keys were beautiful, but there are not a lot of beaches, it mostly rocky coastline.

I’ve seen beautiful places, but cannot wait to see Hawaii. We’re traveling to Oahu and staying in Honolulu. I didn’t want to stay anywhere crazy expensive, but wanted to stay some place as close to the beach as we could. My mom won’t be going on some of the excursions with me, so I wanted to be sure she was close to the beach.

Here’s a photo of the hotel. Now, I know this doesn’t nearly do it justice. So let me share some more. The hotel has a couple of restaurants, and here is the view from one of them!

You just can’t go wrong there. How beautiful is that view. But it gets better. Just wait. Here is the view from the room, not the exact one, but we are in an Oceanfront room.
