    Hey Amanda,

    I’m writing an article for the Christchruch Press – Sounds the Same – What’s the difference between Doubtful and Milford Sound. I’d really like to quote you ‘it was all ours for the day; we weren’t sharing it with anybody else’ although I need to know your surname to do this…..

    Is it ok? I’ll send you a full PDF if Ken decides to publish it.

      Hi Barb! I do have a handful of posts on Hawaii that you might want to read (head over to my Destinations page, then click on the US – you’ll find all my Hawaii content listed there). It’s been 4 years since I was on Oahu, so I’m afraid I can’t make any recommendations about places to eat (except Leonard’s for malasadas!).

      But as for budget activities… you can use TheBus to get around if you don’t have a car; you could easily spend a whole day taking the bus around the island, stopping off at beaches along the way. I would also highly recommend Pearl Harbor (free AND a really great site to see), and snorkeling at Hanauma Bay (not far from Honolulu). I also did a Circle Island tour while I was there, which was a great way to see a lot of sites in one day for a decent price. A lot of people go to the Polynesian Cultural Center, too, but that’s on the pricier side of things. I also went to Kualoa Ranch, where a lot of movies and TV shows have been filmed.
