How soon can we go traveling? I miss Hawaii so much

North America

What can there be said about Hawaii…the people are friendly, the weather is always nice, and the beaches are fantastic. I have been in Waikiki several times and enjoyed each trip. Hula’s, Angles, and some of the other clubs are nice, carry a relaxed atmosphere, and should be checkout out promptly upon arrival!!!  I highly suggest Angles.  The bartenders and owner are very nice and accommodating. If you are anything like me, daily activities at home are stressful and Hawaii will definitely remove all that within hours.

As I’m sitting here in the sweltering heat at my desk writing this blog, my only thoughts are walking on the beaches of Hawaii, with a soft breeze blowing and the ocean water splashing on my feet. I keep telling myself to be patient that I will be back there soon; but, those words do not sooth my present discomfort.

I’m pretty much a loner when it comes to traveling to Hawaii. I don’t care to shop very much, after I get my fill of chocolate covered macademia nuts, so admittedly my favourite island is Kauai. The terrain is beautiful and the hiking trails extensive. I prefer to stay there late October or early November. This gives me a little breather before the hectic, relative-infiltrated holidays back on the mainland. These are considered the rain months, but walking in the rain on the beach is an experience all of it’s own. It’s like taking a warm shower on the beach and it feels fantastic! But the sun comes out and the temperatures remain in the low 80’s which I find extremely comfortable.

Reality is that Hawaii is an all season destination because of the moderate consistent temperatures between 75 and 90 degrees. How great is that! You get to colder temperatures by hiking the higher mountain elevations–all a matter of preference.

From December through to spring there are actually fewer travel bargains available. Hotel room rates are higher, with the highest rates between Christmas and New Years. Booking your flights to Hawaii can be a little tricky, so try to book as far in advance as possible. From What I’ve Heard, another successful tactic is to book your flights last minute. I have not ever done this personally, but the more I’m thinking about it, I just may have to try it and leave, say, tomorrow?
