Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Livin' La Vida Loca, Big Island Style

If you're preparing to travel to an island paradise, whether in the South of Europe, the Caribbean, or the South Pacific, you'll need to make a few preparations beforehand so as not to get tripped up in the heat of the moment. For example, if you're traveling to Hawaii, you may not need a passport, but you'll certainly want to carry along a full supply of traveler's checks to tide you over during your stay. In case you haven't heard, the ATM fees can prove quite a daunting challenge to an economical traveler.

Let's visit Hawaii

Traveling Light and Tight

Armed with your passport, traveler's checks, and airline ticket, off you go into the wild blue yonder. It's an excellent idea to travel light, taking with you only what you can fit into a carry-on bag and (maybe) one extra suitcase. If you're traveling on business, it's an excellent idea to take only what will fit into your briefcase. Baggage fees have increased exponentially in the past few years, so it's a wise move to arrange your travel ensemble accordingly.

Staying Hip to Your Surroundings

If you're traveling to the island for a business consultation or conference, you'll probably spend most of your time knee deep in preparation for the big event. But, of course, there may still be plenty of opportunity to enjoy a bit of rest and relaxation during the rest of the night. It's all right to spend plenty of time at the hotel, or at the local zoo and other tourist attractions. After all, that's what they are there for.

But you'll also want to take along a handy travel guide that will enlighten you as to some of the finest attractions that show off the "real" face of the location. You'll want to stop in for a drink at a local tavern, or enjoy some fine regional cuisine at a local bistro, in order to get to know the lay of the land.

Traveling First Class on a Budget

If you're really searching for the ultimate secret of how to travel first class on a modest budget, you may need a little help to get you fully up to speed.
