Hawaii Vacation - Overview

We started the year 2012 with a "grand" two-week vacation in Hawaii. I usually spend Decembers and Januaries in a slow, quiet manner, but we could not pass up this opportunity to explore Hawaii.

CJ had a four-day training in Oahu, which meant his flights, room & board were to be all paid. So, we decided to add me and Elisha, along with another 10 days to the trip so that we could travel Oahu and other Hawaiian islands.

I described it "grand", because, even though, we didn't splurge in sightseeing or shopping, we did stay at nice hotels/resorts through the two-week period. With a 19-month old toddler, we needed to stay where we could keep our little one entertained for a few hours each day. So we picked beachfront hotels and resorts with swimming pools, gardens, and even some live animals roaming around inside.

However, wherever we could, we did save. Next few postings will be about our this grand & frugal Hawaii vacation covering Big Island, Maui, and Oahu. I hope you could glean some useful tips for your own trip.
