I was able to travel to Honolulu for the first time in March on a bargain United fare that turned into an even better trip when United cancelled their flights and re-accommodated my friend and I on Delta.
Now after snagging another good fare, we are able to go back this month and since winter is starting to close in – even here in the ATL – I am ready for a little sun and sand. And as I love to eat, I am very much looking forward to the heavenly Kalua pork at ONO Hawaiian Foods, sinfully huge malasadas at Leonard’s Bakery and a return to Me’s Barbecue, the hands-down best hole-in-the-wall Korean barbecue I ever ate. It’s all good.
Honolulu and Waikiki are very urban and packed with tourists, but there is something about being on an island that slows things down to a manageable pace so that even I, the queen of impatience, caught a little aloha spirit. A little less sightseeing this time and a lot more beach, I think.
