I love Hawaii
I’m a Hawaii Destination Specialist and recently attended a seminar to update my designation. The bad news is, after spending time going over each island and all they have to offer, I have become obsessed with going back. I have been to Hawaii many times and lived there for a year and now feel the pull to return.
I lived in Oahu and worked at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel on Waikiki Beach. On my last visit I spent a few nights at the Pink Palace before my Hawaiian cruise. At check-in I mentioned I had worked at the Camera and Gift shop many years ago, when the bell boy brought my bag he greeted me as if I had come home and wouldn’t take a tip. I had gotten the job because I wore shoes to the interview!
I’m anxious to see this grand hotel again, after her 84 million dollar renovation. All of the Waikiki area has been going through renovations, the area had gotten a bit run down and tourist were going right to the outer islands. New restaurants and upscale shops have been added to bring in more tourist.
I found myself watching Lost to see the beautiful Hawaii scenery, I even watched an old Magnum PI last night…this is really becoming an obsession!
