Both. Our mission is to Germany, but we decided a few months ago that if we went to Europe on a mission, we would go to Hawaii before. I just booked an 11 day cruise around the islands in November. We had some constraints, as Janet didn’t want to miss any holidays. Okay, I couldn’t meet that restriction – we’ll be gone on Veterans Day. We leave on Nov 10 and spend a couple days in Honolulu, residing at the ship. We go have three days on Maui and two days a day at Kona and Hilo and 2 days on Kauai and cruising around Molokai and Napali. We will fly back the night before Thanksgiving. It was really cheap – $600 each for 11 days, and the flight was relatively cheap.
We are excited about this, our last chance to get warm, before heading to a cold German winter.
