  28. Mahalo for sharing your comments about your Hawaii travel plans for this year.

    We numbered all the comments/entries and used a random number generator to select the winner of the desk calendar. Congratulations to Diane for winning this year’s contest.

  29. Although I visited Waikiki in 1961 and Kauai in 1971, it was not until 1976 that I first visited Maui. Since then I have returned every single year. When I land and breathe in that warm fragrant air, all my worries drift away, No matter how busy I am, I never bring work to Maui. In fact, I turned down a work assignment that would have paid for my flights and all expenses for one week a month for 9 months, because I didn’t want to “taint” Maui with job responsibilities. Although there has been much change between 1976 and 2024 [costs, crowds, traffic, etc.], Maui will always hold a special place in my heart.

  30. I am travelling to Oahu in November of 2024 for my 14th trip to Hawaii! I am taking my Ohana (parents), aged 81 and 82 for their very first trip to Hawaii. I can’t wait to introduce them to all of the things that we have discovered and love about all things Hawaii. Thank you for this opportunity – Mahalo

  31. In November of 2024 myself and my wife will be taking my in-laws to Hawaii for their first visit. We have been to Hawaii many, many times and have visited all of the islands. We love something different about each island so many times we split our visits between multiple islands. We cannot wait to share our love for Hawaii with them!

  32. I believe Go Visit Hawaii is the Best Travel Business. They are concerned and dedicated to making a difference and making each travel experience a positive
    one for each person, and family.
