      This young man was a bit startled when this turtle came up on the beach for a bit of sun in Kauai, Hawaii at Poipu Beach.  Actually the turtles seem to keep to themselves but every now and then come up on the beach.

  • Why Traveling “Poor” is More R Why Traveling “Poor” is More Rewarding than Traveling “Rich”

    • From: IMAndreaW
    • Description:

      I’ve traveled rich. It’s nice. It’s VERY nice. Like the time I went to Kauai. Limo to the airport. First class seats. Big rental car waiting at the curb. Big room, luxurious bed, every amenity. Go the to the best restaurants, the best shops, the best spas, the best golf courses.

      And…repeat. This time with a view of Maui instead.

      And…repeat. This time with an NYC vibe.

      And…repeat. This time with an Italian theme. Okay, I didn’t go all the way to Italy – just to The Venetian in Las Vegas. But still, top of the line restaurants, shopping, spa, etc.

      Honestly, it all runs together after awhile. There is a great sameness to it all – the sameness of quality. Take the hotels, for example. At a certain quality level every hotel offers certain features:

      • Beautiful lobby – check
      • Award-winning restaurant – check
      • Exclusive spa – check
      • Attentive staff – check

      How can you tell where you are? Mostly from the “theme”. Staff is wearing hawaiian shirts – must be Hawaii! Very proper suits and ties – must be London! Or – Berlin?!

      (By the way, I think the reason why the super-rich sometimes flip out over seemingly trivial breaches in quality or service is because if every travel experience hovers around the same uber-high standard of quality, a minor degradation can seem like a travesty).

      Now, when I travel poor, NOTHING is the same. I stayed in a perfectly nice hotel in New York – on a scary street.  A Boston hotel had no lobby at all, just a small front desk and an elevator – but a fantastic location in the heart of the Back Bay. The hotel in Russell Square London sucked but I soaked for hours every night in that deep tub (I had to buy my own bubble bath, of course). A bed and breakfast in Napa had the chintziest “day-cor” ever – but I didn’t have to buy dinner after their generous happy hour of local wine and cheese and fresh-baked bread and cookies.

      My fave coffee shop on Gloucester Road London gave me a free croissant with coffee – a little touch, but much appreciated. The menu is high-dollar at the Beach House on Kauai – but the heartstopping sunset views can be had for the price of a drink in the bar. Try a pizza tour of New York to see the vast differences possible in a simple slice of pie.

      Don’t get me wrong, between these great experiences have been some real dogs. But I usually don’t mind too much because I didn’t spend too much in the first place. And when something good happens, I truly appreciate it.

      On Anini Beach on Kauai, Hawaii you can be pretty much alone and watch the quiet waves come in or sit and reach a book on the almost untouched beach.  It is also a wonderful place for children to wade in the calm surf... well most of the time.

  • Hawaii - On a Budget Hawaii - On a Budget

    • From: gogoddess
    • Description:

      Hotel:  The Aqua Aloha Surf Waikiki offered the location and amenities I was looking for at the right price.  I paid under $100 per night...had budgeted for more expensive digs but decided it wasn't necessary to spend as much as planned on a decent property.  The hotel sits on the Alai Wai Canal at a the busy intersection of Kanekapolei & Alai Wai Blvd.  There was a lot of traffic noise so I was glad my room was higher up which helped some.  The property is well maintained, the staff is friendly and the room was comfortable, especially the bed.  It had a decent size mini fridge, microwave, coffee-maker and sink.  Dishes and utensils were provided as well.  In fact the first thing I did was go shopping at the Food Pantry grocery store 1/2 block away to stock up on beverages, yogurt, fresh fruit, etc. for my eight day satay. Continental Breakfast is included at the Aloha Surf (provided you book through Aqua), but the selection was poor (pancakes & pastries - not much else.  So I enjoyed breakfast daily on my balcony with beautiful views of the Alai Wai to the left and distant view of the ocean to my right (a big $$ saver).

      Transportation:  There is now affordable airport shuttle service from the Honolulu Airport to Waikiki - It was suggested by the hotel that I book my transfer in advance with Speedishuttle - so I did.  I was met at the airport baggage claim area, the Rep was holding a sign with my name on it - nice touch - I didn't have to seek them out.  The coast: $12.95 (+tip).  It is shared ride service - but we were loaded and off to Waikiki in less than 20 minutes of my arrival...baggage arrival was the only hold up.  I would certainly recommend Speedishuttle as the way to go...and definately make reservations in advance.

      Sightseeing:  This was my fifth trip to Hawaii so I was looking to complete my lists of sites to visit not seen on previous trips.  First stop: Iolani Palace - I reserved a docent led tour about a week prior to my arrival.  It was well worth the $20 and well worth the visit.  I read Queen Lili' uokalani's Book - Hawaii's Story - and moved to see the actual room were she was held prisoner after the take over of Hawaii by US led forces.  A great history lesson to be had there - everyone should visit.  Another day the Polynesian Cultural Center - I really didn't want an all-day tour but decided to book when I discovered a 1/2 day option was available.  For $69 I got transportation to/from Waikiki departing at 12:30pm and entrance to "Ha: Breath of Life", a Polynesian show which began at 7:30pm.  Since I did not pre-pay for dinner, I ate at their snack bar and had a delicious meal of teriyaki shrimp & chicken...yumm.  When I did meet up with the others from our coach, I asked "how was dinner"...based on their responses...I was glad I opted out of the buffet & Luau.  The young man who was our tour guide from Waikiki offered those of us who had not booked the entire package to join him for a guided tour for only $15 more..."Jay" was a the perfect host and gave an excellent tour!  I think he's only there on Saturdays.  I saved the best for last - Blue Hawaiian Helicopter Tours! - this was my big splurge and birthday gift to self. I had been wanting to do it on other visits but couldn't convince my fellow travelers...since this was a solo trip I got to do everything I wanted including a 50 minute copter tour of Oahu.  Blue Hawaiian has an excellent reputation and I would have booked with them anyway in spight of a neighbors relative owning the company.  I didn't book in advance because I wanted to watch the weather forecast and pick a "good" day while there.  I booked just two days in advance and my choice of several departure dates & times.  From hotel pick up, to check in at the heliport - to our actual tour - top-notch service was provided.  Our pilot "Jonathan" was an excellent guide and put everyone at ease right away...there was some taped commentary but most was provided by our pilot.  I even bought a video of my actual flight so I could share the unforgettable experience with family/friends back home.  Can't wait for my next Blue Hawaiian Tour - Kauai or the Big Island?

      Activities: The Beach: Waikiki Beach - as beautiful as it is can get crowded and noisy.  I found a perfect oasis in Kahanamoku Beach - near the Hilton Hawaiian Village.
