Off we go on another adventure. Well, ‘adventure’ is a strong word … as we’re going back to Maui … an island we’ve been to a number of times. None the less … a much needed, and well deserved, vacation. Unfortunately, the trip didn’t start out that well … a series of very bad airline …

Big Island

Second half of the vacation is done … this time it was to the “Big Island” of Hawaii (which is named Hawaii, just to confuse us). We did get some snorkeling in … but not as much as we would have liked to. Did a bit of exploring, no geocaching, and very little hiking. The …

Top of the morning, Chaps

Well, we’re off on another adventure. This time to the UK and Ireland. Had to wake up ugly early. But managed to get out of the house on time. Mike, our taxi driver from American Taxi, was great. Even checked the status of our flight when I couldn’t get online with my phone. I got …

Today was our first full day on Maui … I woke up really early … around 2am Hawaiian time (due to the time change). Dinked around with the computer a bit (of course I brought it along). Around 4am I made coffee for Ginny and I and we watched the day break. Ginny and I …

Maui Bound

Well, here we are again on a plane going to Maui. It’s Ginny’s birthday in about a week and we’re going to celebrate. I’m not going to say how old she’s going to be, but I’ll give you a hint it starts with 5 and ends with 0. You do the math. Our flight was …

Rainy day

Weather is looking pretty sketchy, so we’re just going to drive around town to see what’s to see today. Ginny wants to go out by the airport to see “Aragorn Studios and I would like to scope out the airport to see where we will return the car. Had lunch at a local cyber café …
