About Today’s Show

Jerry and Elle are my travel mentors. I’ve known them for about 10 years and I dream of being a world traveler with their level of adventure and comfort. When I first went to Southeast Asia in 1997, they provided me with so many tips on where to stay, who to see, and how to get around.

They travel light – one rolling cart each, and use miles for most of their plane tickets. They have been to Hawaii over 50 times! And have made many friends from around the world, many of whom they see here both by design and by chance, on their return visits.

Here are some links for things they mentioned in the show.
Coconut Plaza Hotel – $73/night, king bed, room facing the Ala Wai Canal, small kitchen and Continental Breakfast included. We did the show in their spacious and lovely lobby.
Sunset on the Beach – Free movies on the sand in Waikiki.
Royall Hawaiian Band Concert – Free concert on Sundays at Kapi’olani Park.
The Bus – A great way to get around the entire island of O’ahu.

Hawaiian words
O’ahu: no Hawaiian meaning, but this island is known as the gathering place
Kaʻahele: travel

  3. This is my first time here and I really enjoyed it. Jerry and Elle are great. I’ll be back!

  4. Mahalo for your comments! My mom suggested I hire Jerry and Elle and let them shoot the show to give me a break. I just love all the good ideas and connections we are making.

    Now, when are the rest of you coming to Hawai’i???


  1. […] Crazy bizzy with work today so no trip to the beach! I did take Jerry and Elle to the airport though, with a final trip to the gas station to fill up my gas tank. It’s a great metaphor for me too. I’m tired, and looking to get recharged. […]
