  1. I’ve already been twice and still learned a thing or two — this definitely seems like it’d be handy to more than just first timers. Thanks!

  2. Agree with Kevin, really handy tips not just for first time travelers esp. the bit about saving money on rentals and the sights & activities. Thanks for sharing! Cheers.

  3. Dear Sheila,

    My sisters and I are planning to go to Hawaii for the first time this summer. Which month would be better to go, July or August? And we are planning to stay at the Makaha Valley Towers. Do you think that’s a good place to stay?
    If possible I would like an answer by email.
