2014 Lana’i Calendar Giveaway

lanai hawaii desk calendar

We’re giving away this 2014 desk calendar featuring paintings of Lana’i by Mike Carroll. These popular desk calendars always sell out year over year.

I’ve put this calendar on my personal Christmas wish list for several years. The problem I have with these calendars is that the scenes are so pretty, I have trouble discarding them in the recycle bin. In fact, I have both 2012 and 2013 calendars on my desk at the moment.

If you’d like to enter to win, just comment below on this blog post (not on Facebook) and tell us if Hawaii is in your 2014 plans. Enter your comment by Friday, December 13, 2013. The randomly selected winner will be notified by email so make sure you enter your email address accurately.

    1. I hope to include Hawaii in my travel plans for 2014. I dreamed I was in Maui although I had never been to a tropical island before. I would like to fulfill that dream in the new year!

  1. Went to Kauai this past May for the very first time and a week after we were back already started our vacation to the Islands again in May 2014.. so very beautiful and spiritual.. Mahalo

    1. Haha, Donna, you sound like you got hooked on Hawaii just like us. We first visited Maui and Oahu in 2003 for what we thought was going to be our one and only trip to Hawaii. Shortly after we returned, we started planning a trip to Kauai. Then, after that, a trip to Hawaii, the Big Island. In 2006, we started this blog, Go Visit Hawaii, ….and the rest is history. πŸ™‚

  2. We just visited Oahu this past October, so unfortunately we won’t be revisiting in 2014. But hope to again real soon! Loved Hawaii! Love your posts!

  3. Am I’m in warm Kona as we speak. Got here at the right time, considering the weather on the mainland, especially Montana!

  4. We just spent 12 days on Oahu for the first time and LOVED it! It will probably take us all of 2014 to pay off the Hawaiian Miles Visa card. Maybe in 2015!

  5. So in love with Kauai that it was the ONLY place we could put on our list of where to go to celebrate our 25th anniversary in October 2014!! We picked our dates last night and will get our tickets this week. πŸ™‚

  9. I was on Oahu last month and after I got back I started looking at options for next year. Undecided on where, but possibly the Big Island and Oahu again. I’ve been to Maui only once and haven’t yet been to the other islands.

  10. We have been to Oahu 5 times and once to Maui! Love Waikiki! Good thing we went when we did because I believe that my husband’s traveling days are done!

    We had a fabulous time during our visit and the appetite to see more of the magical islands was definitely whetted.

  40. Hawaii, my dreams. I live in very sad place where is too much rain and snow. When I wake up I must look at mist, maybe it is romantic, but I would like to be in Maui….

  41. Unfortunately, our one and only time in Hawaii was in 2007 when we spent a week on the Big Island, and spent the second week aboard the Pride of America. Since we have a daughter who will be a Sr at Rider University in the Fall of 2014, Hawaii will not be in our travel plans for several years.

    1. Sorry I didn’t finish my comment. I wanted to add that I wish that NJ wasn’t so far from Hawaii. It’s heaven on earth, and looking at any pictures of Hawaii brings back such wonderful memories. I’d love to own this beautiful calendar!
