Hawaii Travel Tips and Tricks
So… my best friend Malena chose Ohio State University over the University of Hawaii and is now knee deep in snow there. She called it the “Snowpocalypse,” ha-ha, and the pictures she sent me look like she’s right.
Right now, it’s early in the morning in Honolulu and the temperature is 71 degrees. Our forecast for later today says it will be sunny with a high near 78 and winds from the east between 10 and 14 mph. Really! And you can check it yourself by calling the O`ahu Forecast Hotline at 808-973-5286!
Here’s a question for my student readers…
What do you think is the best thing about being a student at UHawaii at Manoa? Is it the weather; the prime Pacific Island location; the incredible educational opportunities and cutting edge technology? Is it our amazing athletic teams; surfing; tanning? The only downside to studying at the University of Hawaii, as I see it, is making it out in four years because there are too many awesome distractions!
I love you Malena, but I had to rub it in

When people think of Hawaii vacations, they usually come up with images of Waikiki and Ala Moana Beaches.
Waikiki Beach is basically a two mile stretch of pacific coastline that is fronted by pristine hotels and tourist related facilities. It’s without a doubt the most famous beach in the world and it was ranked the best beach in America for 2009! It’s also the home of our very beautiful Kapiolani Park.
Ala Moana Beach is another very popular beach in Honolulu. Located right across the street from our Ala Moana Shopping Center, this beach is a terrific location for tourists and islanders to swim and sunbathe. It’s also where local people like to go for a jog after work. Facilities at Ala Moana Beach include tennis court, softball fields, and lifeguard towers.
If you’re planning a trip to Honolulu in the near future, you really should check out Conway Confidential’s Secret Spots & Hidden Gems website. The site has lots of insider tidbits about our island restaurants and tourist attractions. They also have a nice selection of travel games and videos.
Hawaii Airfare Secrets
After working for 16 years in the airline industry, Tony Morrison was unexpectedly fired and left hunting for a job. Pondering on his predicament, he decided that his “insider” experience could be super valuable to the traveling public. With revenge on his mind, he penned a book called My Airfare Secrets: Fired Travel Agent Reveals How To Get Dirt Cheap Airline Tickets! Catchy title for sure, and this has to be the best research on finding cheap airfare that I have ever seen.
The ebook is full of valuable tips, tricks, and secrets divided into four sections starting with “Basic Tricks” and ending with “Top Secret Tricks.” This is first rate information that most people are unaware of. Some of the tips given in the first part of the book are better known, but the stuff in the last three sections is solid gold – stuff I did not know and the airline tickets savings can be a VERY pleasant surprise.
Here’s a quick overview of some of the things you will learn. Your timing when buying airfares can make a big difference when it comes to finding discount airline tickets. There are deals to be had everyday if you know when they occur, what questions to ask, and where to find them.Finally, there are some specific legal tricks for searching deals and saving money.
Since traveling by air is so expensive, I thought I’d share my find on the blog so that others might benefit. You can find and purchase the ebook directly from the author on the Tony Morrison website. Even if you only fly once a year, you will save more then enough money to cover your investment in Tony’s ebook if you follow his advice.
