Holiday Break In Kauai

Hawaii 2018 Edition

Tune in over the Holidays as we take you to Kauai, Hawaii to ring in the New Year – Dec 25th 2017- January 3rd 2018

Planning Timeline :

March 2017  – Email friends “who want to travel for NYE?” – 3 friends are in. Plus us 2 that makes 5 – We have a trip!

April 2017 – Ok, but where do we go?!

We want: Heat, Fun, Activities, Somewhere New

Considered options:

  • Cape Town South Africa
  • Dubai, UAE
  • Santiago, Chile
  • Tel Aviv, Israel
  • Hawaii, USA

And the Winner is……. Hawaii!!

Ok we’re going to Hawaii, but which island?:

Each of us took and Island Quiz to figure out which island to pick

Decision: Kauai !

Plane tickets booked – Dec 25th Jan 2nd.

Tip: Leaving on the 25th gave us great flight options and saved us hundreds of dollars.

Ok lodging, where do we stay?

Options were:

  • West side
  • Poipu
  • Kapaaa area
  • Princeville

After researching weather it seems that Princeville tends to get too rainy that time of year so we decided to go to central Kapaa.

Sites considered for booking:

Winner= Kauai Calls


-Great customer service

– Booked it with Candace who was great

-Best value for money.


Rented 2 Cars -Gives our group more flexibility to move around the island.

June 2017 – 1 friend wants to join! No worries the more the merrier – T’is the season!

June – December = 7 months to enjoy the PTE*!

Pre Trip Excitement: PTE is no joke. It comes in bursts, and, on a tough day at work it will give you that extra motivation – sort of like a nice cup of coffee before an early meeting. A coffee high for 9 months? Sign. Me. Up.
