The economic downturn – though challenging for many, including the tourism industry – has spurred a massive movement towards “staycations.” Instead of vacating their lives and flying thousands of miles away, people all over the globe are choosing a more economical, eco-friendly holiday: finding bliss and adventure in their state or home country.
Seeing that I’m in Hawaii – 8 miles from Waikiki, to be precise – I’ve decided to embrace the trend myself. So for the next month, I’m going to be a tourist in my own home and show you the best of what the island of O’ahu has to offer.
Check back in a couple days to hear about my first “staycation-style” exploration. Feel free to post suggestions, comments or questions at any time. On that note, my friends, aloha!
