We're back again for our latest adventure. This time in just 4 short days we're headed to Hawaii! We will be celebrating our 1st Wedding Anniversary at Aulani for 5 nights, followed by a 3 night stay in Waikiki and then finishing up the trip on the NCL Pride of America for a week to visit the rest of the Hawaiian Islands. (May 3-19) If you'd like to read more about us, you can find that info here. If clicking that link is just too much for yah...the short version: We're Matt (33) & Lisa (27), DVC members from NY. I'm the Disney freak of the two, Matt has started to get the Disney fever since meeting me. We are newlyweds that overcame the impossible... I'm a Met Fan from NY, he's a Yankee Fan from Jersey (gross!). Proof that love conquers all. I've been blogging my trips since 2010 and they're always live. I also blog the "pre-trip" planning portion which you can find on the blog. www.serenitynowtravelblog.com I'm not going to go crazy with the pre-trip stuff here. You are more than welcome to head over to the blog and read about all the crazy booking, canceling, rebooking, test runs, etc... that went on over the past few months. This trip was probably the most planned trip I have done since the 23 Day DCL Transatlantic, WDW, F&WF Extravaganza back in 2010. That was a doozy & this one seems to be on par. This is my second visit to Hawaii (first to Aulani) and Matt has never been. We're trying to get all our big vacations in before we have kids and life ends. Which, by the way...does anyone ever feel like it's a good time to start having kids?! Today, I could wait 10 years before having kids. Ask me tomorrow...I want kids NOW. I'm all over the place. Matt probably secretly thinks I'm bipolar. I digress. Highlights of our trip will include: nonstop flight via Hawaiian Airlines (11 hours!!!) Aulani ocean view studio Diamond Head Hike Farmer's Market Shrimp Trucks Sightseeing major attractions Luau Cage Diving with Sharks (Yes, you read that right.) Spa Day Surf Lessons Snorkeling (lots of snorkeling!) Volcanoes Waterfalls 2 hotels 1 cruise ship 4 rental cars and LOTS OF FOOD!! We're gonna need a vacation from this vacation! For now, it's off to do some laundry & maybe start packing.
