Hawaii, Hawaii, USA – Pt6

Continued from here. Hilo immediately struck me as a nice place to be. Open and spacious, developed and interesting, with a nice combination of culture and commercialism. It’s not popular as a tourist destination, so it’s a haven for locals, and it shines because of that. There’s no $150 luau on the beach, instead there.s […]

Maui, Hawaii, USA – Pt1

One of the great things about working in the tourism industry is low seasons. Plenty of holiday time, and it’s usually a pretty cheap time to travel. I managed to get a break away from Canada just before Spring Break in the USA, and did my usual search to find the cheapest place I could […]

Jasper Again

As winter had been set in for a while, but starting to come to end, it seemed like a good time to re-visit Jasper, and make the most of the winter activities. If you’d like to know what I got up to on my first visit, check it out here. We had a firm destination […]
