The Best Vacation I Ever Had
...The Best Vacation I Ever Had Was..... ..
... when hubby and i went to Hawaii in 2009. My brother had asked us to go along with him and his wife on a cruise around the Hawaiian Is. How could we say no! so, off we went. First, a 4 hr flight out to Vancouver,where we would then take a 12 hr. flight to Honolulu. Well, id never flown before, so this was a first for me as well. So nervous, but i loved the flight. We had decided ahead of time to stay in Oahu for a few nights, to sight-see a bit before boarding the ship to cruise around the islands. We rented a car, and drove both sides of Oahu in two days, stopping off at a cultural centre the first night. Had a great time, and tried "poy", for the first time. this is a starchy food they eat down there, similar to potatoes, but with no taste at all!, But there was plenty of pinapples, my fav. And, the roast pig, coked in ground was delicious! The cruise ship was fantastic, and very relaxing. Food, my gosh, anything and everything!...even sodium-reduced for my diet. Lots of great shows and entertainment aboard the ship and dancing! Of all the hawaiian Islands, i think hubby and i preferred Maui the best, but all the islands were lovely! Hubby and i had been a few other places such as Florida, Miami, but this was tops! I kept thinking to myself, am i dreaming, and if i was, please dont let it end. I had always wanted to go to Hawaii, since very young.....id go to the theatre, and sit and watch Elvis in Hawaii over & over, thinking that someday id love to be there too. And, my gosh, my wish came true. This was absolutely the best vacation i ever had! Dee63
