Welcome to Chapter 7 of the Carnival of Aloha!
I couldn’t help but get a kick out of the post that is our lead-in to the Carnival this month.
j blu presents Trouble in Paradise: Kill Da Cockroaches! posted at Local Kine Hawaii. There’s nothing much more I can say to that. They do make for some great stories that we can laugh at… after it’s over… certainly not during a roach experience!
These scavengers always enjoy a luau… probably more than a carnival! They do like to invite themselves. Having them arrive uninvited is certainly not a very good way to impress visitors!
Leslie Carbone was fortunate enough to enjoy a Royal Luau while visiting the islands. She posted the story at her Leslie Carbone blog with a short note saying simply, “Mahalo!” Whew! It sounds like Leslie got away without having to share her experience with any party-crashing vermin.
A royal luau sounds like something we have for weddings — these are just one of the romantic things that happen in Hawaii on a fairly regular basis. But, there’s so much more!
Sheila tells us all about it as she presents the Top 7 Reasons Why Hawaii is Romantic posted at Hawaii Vacation Blog – GoVisitHawaii.com. Sheila explains that, “In this post, I list my top reasons why people come to Hawaii to celebrate their love. I love Hawaii and this post is my way of sending a Valentine’s card to Hawaii. :-)”
I’m a sap for romance so I’m all in on sharing the love! While Sheila wants Hawaii to be her valentine, Neenz shares a different kind of love with us.
L.P. NEENZ FALEAFINE shares the love of Auntie Genoa Keawe posted at From the Mind of NEENZ. We are given “a remembrance of one of Auntie Genoa Keawe’s last public performances.” Neenz says, “I will cherish my brief conversation with her that evening, but most importantly I am proud to have had the opportunity to introduce her to my children.”
Emotions run deep in Hawaii and our bloggers are never at a loss for words when it’s time to share things that elicit these emotions. Now that we’ve got you all mushy and you’ve decided that you’ve absolutely got to come and visit, how about a little more travel advice?
Jeff over at the Beat of Hawaii asks, “Should I Buy Travel Insurance to Protect My Hawaii Vacation?” He posts a possible answer to that question and he has helpful information on what to consider. Jeff also has “an on-line tutorial to show how easy it is to buy trip insurance on your own.”
Before we close, we’ll pull in the opposite end of the spectrum for this Carnival and check on the political impact of daring to ask Hawaii for its opinion…
Evelyn here at Homespun Honolulu, your Carnival host, couldn’t help but include a post about the Hawaii Democratic caucus. Here we get to see just what happens when Hawaii’s Votes Actually Matter! That was quite a night!
We’re done for now but we’re looking forward to what everybody sends us next! Submit your blog article to the next chapter of the Carnival of Aloha by using our carnival submission form.
