Ok readers, This is going to be the longest post you’ve ever read. Are you ready?? Go:
I know I have let this honeymoon thing go on wwaaayyyy too long but We’ve finally figured it out. My dad is giving us his frequent flyer miles so we do get to go to Hawaii!!! Yay!!! That’s the first place Fiance said he wanted to go but I knew we could barely afford a hotel there let alone the expensive plane tickets. So that’s one task checked off!
Next, I’ve done some research (meaning: hours spent huddled over the computer until its dark outside without even realizing it) I think Big Island is where we’ll be headed. I’m going to have to give you lists to show what all I need from you. But we’ll get to that later. Here’s my reasoning for the Big Island:
1. We hate lots of people!
2. We just want to relax.
3. we’re always up for an adventure
4. They have the cheapest rental houses of all the islands on homeaway
I’ve found a vacation rental that we picked after hours of consideration on Homeaway.com (love that site) This will be our view!
It’s a sweet little house and it even has a pool since we don’t know if we’re near the beach and or if it’s the nudey beach on the big island. (we’re not into seeing other peoples doodads)
Problem? only a penny size one.
Fiance wants a beach… he’s never been to one. While he says that it isn’t that important to him I can’t help but think…It’s his honeymoon…he should get everything he’s dreamed. Right? So I was thinkin that we’d stay in oahu for a night either before coming to the big island or on our way back since I am almost positive that we’ll have to transfer there. I know we can work our budget around it by just not staying as long on the big island.
NOW Here’s what I really need from you (took me long enough)
1. Is the Big Island good for relaxing?
2. Are there any specific things that we should do on the island?
3. What about the beaches on that island? Are they all the black beaches?
4. Any reasonably priced hotel suggestions in honolulu?
