Calling all addicts...how often must you get back to Hawaii?

Jump to last reply

DH & I went to Oahu in August 2005 for our honeymoon. In May 2007, we discovered Kauai which we absolutely LOVE! We were supposed to go back to Kauai in Oct 2009 but DH got laid off and we finally made it back in May 2011. Going back in 09 would have kept up with our two year tradition we wanted to have (05, 07, 09, 11, etc).

I wanted to hear from Kauai addicts or other islands of Hawaii goers just how often do you have to get back?

One other thing I would like some feedback on:
When DH & I went back to Kauai in 2011 after a 4 year absence it hit us hard how much we had missed our island. We came to the conclusion that we cannot let that much time pass between our sojourns to our favorite place on Earth. Here is the trouble...each year we can only take one "big" trip and sometimes we can fit in a smaller trip such as a long weekend in Estes Park Colorado. There are other places I would love to travel but I keep feeling this pull and yearn to only go to Kauai. Other places I would like to go include: Italy, Greece, California, Utah, Pacific Northwest (we have taken one trip to this area and loved it).

DH & I will both turn 31 this year with this being relevant to how much, God willing, travel time we have left in us: What would you do...Hawaii once a year or travel to other places as well as Hawaii? Would you travel to Hawaii as much as you could for the next few years then start seeing other places? Just curious how others feel about it.

Mahalo fellow Hawaii addicts!
