Our first trip to Hawaii in 2001 guided us on our future vacation path of independent travel. The Manoa Falls hike, that I wrote about as part of my second “Vacation Facts” travel story, really gave us a sense that people we met provided the best travel stories. What have your experiences with meeting people been like?


When we moved on to Kauai, we discovered that independent travel suited us best. We are still traveling this way today.
