Good to see you back Corinna :thumbsup2

I had been checking most days to see if you'd started your trippy ::yes:: So sorry to hear about what's been going on, I hope you're OK hun :hug:
Yes, I am fine. I needed to lick my wounds for a while, but ultimately I am made of sterner stuff than this. Trip report will commence in a few days.

I can't wait for your trip report, I checked back here now and then to see if it already has started! :)
I will start on Thursday and will post a link here. Today I uploaded the biggest memory card and all the Photopass photos onto Flickr. I am going to have a go at the underwater camera tomorrow as this will need quite a bit of deleting before I can upload those photos.

I'm sorry to hear that you had a hard time, but glad to hear that you haven't given up on the rest of us. I do enjoy your trip reports!

Thanks. Yes, we are both OK. I have had quite a stressful time at work and also found myself at the receiving end on what is best described as cyber bullying and defamation of character. I have come to the realisation that there are some rather sad people in the world and if I let them come in between me and my friends here, they have won. So it is back to the normal scheduled program. Corinna
oh my! I had that for a while re the cyber bullying and it really knocked my confidence. I cried buckets most unlike me. I am housebound and this was all I had. Some very unkind names were called to me in personal emails. I simply could not get my head around why somebody would do it. So I backed away. Then I realised they had won. Maybe it's jealousy that people adore you and you are a great beautiful person and they are not happy in themselves so they lash out. Whatever the reason it's wrong and I am sorry you suffered this. Thanks for coming back to us. Paula xx

    Right, I am back. I have had a pretty awful month and actually had not been on here at all between December 22nd and Saturday.

    I also still had not started downloading my photos and putting them onto Flickr. I have started that process yesterday. I have today and tomorrow off and I am hoping that I will get the photos from two of the cameras on Flickr today and then make a good impression on the third camera and my Photopass photos tomorrow. At the moment the plan is that I will get started on the trip report on Thursday. Once I got started, I will post a link here.

    :hug: Glad you've got your chin up again. Sorry it's been awful for you. That's not a pleasant thing to go through. Just don't let them get to you.
    And we're here if you need to vent.

    Corinna, I'm glad you're back! :)

    Some people are so nasty for no reason other than their own sick minds. I'm sorry you had to encounter that. :grouphug:

    I can't wait to hear about your vacation :)

    Looking forward to the TR.

    Thanks. After a month of self-imposed exile, I realized that there are people on here that I missed way too much to stay away.

    What you wrote here sums up perfectly on the stages I went through. I am sorry that you have first hand experience of this as well.

    Actually, that is the conclusion I came to.

    Indeed.

    I think this is even more true in case of those particular people.

    Oh Corinna that is soooooo sad, I'm really sorry to read this :sad::sad:

    I for one look forward to and love reading your TR all about yours & Grahams adventures :coffee:

    I think a lot of people's horrid comments are down to pure jealousy and I am so proud that you never let them beat you :banana:

    I can't wait for the TR to start & :cheer2::cheer2::cheer2::cheer2& ::welcome::welcome::welcome::welcome::welcome::welcome: back

    I'm glad that you are back. It just wasn't the same without you! :grouphug

    I will be very happy to read this TR. I know we had a fantastic time the day we got together, and it sounded like the other parts of your trip were just great. Besides, I haven't read an Aulani TR in quite some time. It keeps me excited to get there someday.

    Thanks.

    I will get started on the trip report tomorrow. Most of the photos are now on Flickr and I am writing about our arrival day at Aulani at the moment.
