Thinking about a trip to Hawaii, need some help.

Jump to last reply

Hawaiian Airlines has bought out some discount air fares from Auckland to Hawaii, AIr NZ has now matched them so seriously thinking about a trip May/June next year.

I know it is the dry season, and there will be high humidity which I am not used to at all. Is this actually a problem or it is just me?. We would also have to rent a car, which again is a bit daunting as we would have to drive on the other side of the road. DH has said well it is probably a lot different driving there than in say NYC.

Not sure whether to do 10 or 14 days. The only reason I am wavering on the 14 days is the additional accommodation cost for the extra days.

It has been a dream of mine to visit Hawaii so I should just take the plunge and do it, even through it is an 8 hour flight from NZ.

It has been suggested that if we stay for 14 days we could do three islands, if we only do 10 it would make sense I guess to only do two.

Any thoughts and suggestions welcome.
