Back in Hawaii after 20 years Sept 28-Oct 1 and Oct 10-13,2010
I arrived in Hawaii with a smile on my face. What a wonderful trip.

My thanks to Jamie99 on transportation on OAHU- THE BUS system on Oahu is a good way to see the island. I rode the bus to The Arizona, Punchbowl, The North Shore (got off at the Dole Pineapple Plantation) I got back on another bus to continue around to The North Shore. I stay on the bus and returned to Ala Moana Shopping Center.

My thanks to Suze-Doris Duke Shanigria Estate-The Islamic Art that are housed on her estate reminded me of my visited Istanbul, Turkey. The visited to Bishop Museum a lots of artifacts of the Hawaiian people and Iolani Palace home of the royal family.

My thanks to Dusty56438-From your posting on May 29,06 I printed the first 5 pages and used them as I travel around Oahu. With you info, my visit to the Arizona and I continue on to the Swap Meet at Aloha Stadium which was only one mile from the Arizona on the bus. A visit to Polynesian Cultural Center with a wonderful show called "HA - BREATH OF LIFE " and a Luau at Paradise Cove the only tour that I paid for with transportation.
At the airport pickup some magazines such as; 101 THINGS TO DO IN OAHU and Best Oahu.
Thanks alots

There are so many places and things to do I just did not have enough time. I do plan on visiting Hawaii again and you can believe it will be in 2 years and not 20 years
Thanks to the wonderful people of Hawaii . I left Hawaii the same way that I arrive, with smile on my face.

Thanks- I have been wanting to back to Hawaii for a long time but every year something happens and I don't go back- I think 2011 is the year I will do it.

I love the Hawaiian people too - and their culture

Where did you stay?
