Looking over the view at Punchbowl Waikiki.
Change of plans again!
I was supposed to go to Cuba January 11th but then work got in the way. I hate when work gets in the way of life Lol. Things happen for a reason too as I ended up in Hawaii a week later on the 18th. I think Hawaii is one of my new favorite places in the world. I flew into Honolulu for the first couple of days. One night I hung out with my co-worker/ friend Rick and his wife Bev, while they were on their third or fourth honeymoon. I must say it was perfect timing as we toured around a bit and I showed them a nice scenic view from the punch bowl where you can see the whole city of Waikiki and went for dinner and yes of course it was on me.
Fun to drive around Maui.
On Saturday night I went over to Maui, I found a cheap flight for $70.00 tax and all included and I had a hostel booked for two nights. I have a friend Leonardo that I met at the hostel about a year ago, he was just moving there from Florida at the time. Leo is loving it in Maui, if I had his toys which include a Corvette and a Harley, man where else would you want to be. Thanks Leo for your hospitality and yes your right I do look good driving your Corvette and next year I will get my motorcycle license. There is no better feeling then riding a motorcycle in Hawaii with the amazing views and windy roads.
The Bike I rented in Honolulu
I went back to Waikiki, Honolulu (Sand Villa hotel) on Monday but could not get a hostel as they were all booked. On my own again and I decided to check out renting a scooter and the guy that ran the rental place said that I could rent a Motorcycle without a motorcycle license. He just asked me if I knew how to ride one and I said oh yeah no problem. Man that is the best thing I have ever done in Hawaii, so next year want to go back, I will have my motorcycle license and travel all the Islands there. With TravelCheapWithPete, I get all kinds of good deals, so I’m looking at Island hopping at a cost of between $60.00 to $90.00 a flight, cheap hotels or Bed and Breakfasts good deals on motorcycles for two they charge me for double anyways. And every Island rents out motorcycles with TravelCheapWithPete promoting their establishments, (accommodations or bike rentals) I think I will get better deals then the average guy. Again I can’t get over what a feeling riding a motorcycle in Hawaii is.
Thanks to all the people I meet when traveling that give me such great deals because of my nonprofit website I will continue to promote your companies too.
I was going to stay for the weekend to watch the Pro Bowl game but it was too hard to find accommodations at a good price.
-I find Hawaiians are friendly, helpful and very happy people.
-Next trip maybe (no plans) February 1st to Cuba I have a few friends that want to check it out.
-And thanks again to my Buddy Christie for the buddy passes…
Till next trip I’m Pete from www.TravelCheapWithPete.com
