More on Hawaii for Senior Travelers

Apr 2nd, 2010 | By James E Becker | Category: Senior Travel

A few years back I had a friend who took a job in Saudi Arabia with ARAMCO.  The company flew him and his family back to the states twice a year.  I asked Andy what the neatest place he had ever visited going around the globe so often.  He replied that he loved Jordan as it was so beautiful, but Hawaii was “paradise.”  I concur after spending two summers at the University of Hawaii at Manoa (Oahu) where I learned to do programming on my computer. 

Aloha is the most Hawaiian word. In the Hawaiian language, it can mean hello or goodbye. It also means love and affection.  Mahalo: ma·ha·lo;Pronunciation: \ˈmä-hä-lō\  is a word that means thank you. You will want to learn these two and use both when you travel to Paradise

Hawaii Insider: History and Tips section is taken from the San Francisco Chronicle newspaper and has lots of information on Hawaii or Hawai’i if you prefer, as many do.  Here are just two I have selected:

(1) Stroll a farmers’ market.As a restaurateur and sustainability supporter, the mayor might appreciate the wealth of local agriculture on the island of Hawai’i — and at the least, come home with the makings of an awesome salad. The Saturday morning Keauhou Farmers Marketincludes live music, Kona coffee, orchids, macadamia nuts and baked goods, in addition to fresh produce and other items. Click here for a link to Big Island markets. 

(2) Sample Kona coffee at its source. Billed as Hawai’i's oldest food festival is the Kona Coffee Cultural Festival.  While you are sampling, don’t forget to sample all the FRUITS, SPICES, NUTS and HERBS. Oh yes, one of the great things about Oahu is the BUS.  You can ride clear around the entire island for just $2.25.  Why take a taxi or a tour when you can take it all in with the BUS? Weather today: (Feels Like: 76°F Humidity:63% Wind: SSW at 9 mph), but that is just about every day. 

The Hawai’i Tourism Authority can give you all you need to know about our 50th state as well as Go Hawai’i.  The fresh, floral air energizes you. The warm, tranquil waters refresh you. The breathtaking, natural beauty renews you.  Look around. There’s no place on earth like Hawaii. Whether you’re a new visitor or returning, their six unique islands offer distinct experiences that will entice any traveler. Visitors are invited to explore the islands and discover the ideal travel experience. All true. jeb
