Today’s eclectic mix of news takes us from wheels to feathers.
- The Wheel of Fortune is coming to the Big Island September 12 to 16. The show will be taped at the Hilton Waikoloa Village along the Kohala Coast. You can apply for free tickets to watch the shows that will evenutally air in November.
- As you know, Alaska Airline flies to four of Hawaii’s major airports. They’ve just announced a useful tool that helps you find their lowest fares. I’d like to see the other airlines implement a tool with all the functionality that this one has.
- Kilauea continues to amaze with fountains of lava explosions. In addition, rarely seen water spouts are popping up at the lava ocean entry point Check out the videos on KGMB and KHNL. With shows like this, I’m a bit baffled as to why the Big Island visitor counts are down.
- Those of you who have been following this blog for a while know that I’m not in the habit of tooting my own horn. So, hopefully you’ll bear with me as I tell you about a new feather in my cap. I’ve recently completed course work, testing and certification by the official Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau. I am now certified as an Island Graduate for the islands of Kauai, Oahu, Maui, Lanai, Molokai, and Hawaii’s Big Island. So, I suppose that’s actually six new feathers. It’s nice to add this official recognition along with my own personal travel experiences to bring you trusted advice.
