It's totally not about "crossing off countries", it's the whole experience of flying and landing in these exotic airports.
Exotic airports?? Have you seen the pics? There's not quite much to see there at all...

There's so much I wish I knew 5 years ago...
20 years ago I knew it all.

I must have forgotten because 10 years ago I realized I have a lot to learn.

Today I'm still learning.

Back on topic, am I really the only one insane enough here to do this?

I've wanted to do the island hopper for a decade now.  One thing I learned this week it's that I have to start whittling down the list already...

Do it over a weekend and I'm in. I can't really do Monday to Thursday.

Hmmm.. I can do May 10 reverse direction.

5/10 - GUM to TKK - Land in TKK @ 9:45pm
5/11 - TKK to HNL - Leave at 10:45am - Via PNI, KSA, KWA, MAJ. - Land in HNL @ 2:50am.
5/11 - Flight from HNL to ORD/EWR/IAH all available in Y, ORD available in J.

I'm already going to be in Asia week before so this works out perfect for my return
