I don’t know about you, but I just love holidays and exploring new and interesting destinations. I especially love revisiting some of my more favourite destinations. And a few months ago my family and I were super lucky to pick up some absolutely bargain priced flights from Sydney to Honolulu, which meant we could go back to one of our favourite spots to holiday. Yay!
The flight itself takes between 9-10 hours, as Sydney is a little over 5000 miles (8000kms) to Honolulu – so it’s a reasonably long trip (though nowhere near as long as it takes us Aussie’s to get to Europe, which is around a 23 hour flight time). Here’s a pic of the three of us on the plane over:
We had such an awesome time on out trip – and I was so proud of my daughter who climbed Diamond Head without assistance (and she’s only 6). Here’s a pic of the three of us on our hike up Diamond Head:
We also had to go shopping of course… it’s kind of part and parcel with what you’re meant to do on Honolulu, isn’t it??? Lol J- So here is a pic of us in downtown Waikiki – taken by my little monkey too (not a bad shot of the hubby and I, hey?):
And finally here’s a pic of the monkey and I, enjoying a hug after a very busy day hitting the shops:
And remember about that travel bug I mentioned? Well, it’s got us good, because we’ve already booked another holiday for next year – this time it will be to the South Pacific and New Zealand, on our first ever cruise!! Yipee… so excited!! What about you all? What are some of your favourite holiday spots? I’d love to hear about them J
Get The Devilish Duke by Maddison Michaels for just 99¢!
Devlin Markham, the notorious “Devil Duke” of Huntington, needs a woman. And not just any woman. If he can’t woo one of the most eccentric bluestockings of the Ton within the month, he can kiss his hard-earned fortune goodbye. But he’s always thought love a wasted emotion and marriage an inconvenience at best. And oddly enough, Lady Sophie Wolcott seems unmoved by his charm…
When Sophie learns her beloved orphanage is in imminent danger, she will do anything to save it. Even marry a ruthless rake who takes what he wants in business and pleasure. A man who’s everything she’s always feared most—but whom she reluctantly begins yearning for.
Then Sophie becomes the target of a killer lurking from the dark shadows of Devlin’s past. And they find not only their lives in jeopardy but their very hearts.
Indoctrinated into a world of dashing rogues and feisty heroines when she was fourteen years old, Maddison Michaels is a prolific reader and writer of romantic suspense and historical fiction. She gets her daily dose of suspense from working as a police officer, prosecuting real-life villains in the Courts of Australia. A member of the RWA and RWA Australia, Maddison is as passionate about her writing as she is about her other two loves: her family and her cups of tea. Luckily, she gets a healthy dash of romance married to her wonderful husband, and her exercise regime is kept on track by her six-year-old daughter, who ensures Maddison is kept very busy chasing her around. Maddison’s debut novel The Devilish Duke is her way of time traveling back to Victorian London to experience a cornucopia of intrigue, romance, and debauchery all from the comfort of her living room!
