And asked for the $.75 back?

To see the nice house in Beverly hills
  you have to go further in. Need a car to do that
Nothing to write home about IMHO.

Nice TR.
Moral of the TR: Everyone plans their HI days with tons of stuff to do, but forgets to factor the need for downtime in that planning...

Plus jet-lag usually has you crashing a lot earlier in the day then you imagined.

Probably because everyone reads your TR's and thinks that they can fit what you've done over time into one trip... lol

Thank you!
Not sure who laid out my itinerary ::) :P
Still had a blast, and it just means I'll have to go back!

Absolutely.

Just printed this out for Shabbat reading -- too bad I can't get all the photos to print. Looks great!

Quick question--I see you bought a toaster...I thought Dan left one in HI for us to use?  ;)

Think it got lost, plus may have been a different island.

Downtime is boring. I get antsy.

Plus jet-lag usually has you crashing a lot earlier in the day then you imagined.
The benefit of being only 2/3 hours ahead: no jetlag.

Not everyone needs it, but if you know that you like downtime you need to factor that and plan accordingly.

True. I scheduled the morning of our last day in HI as "downtime" for DW (since she loves chilling in the pool/beach). I was bored out of my mind.

I had a book, yet I wanted to spend time with DW, so I wasn't reading then.
