> Hawaii: February 2005


Derek and I discovered cheap nonstop flights from San Francisco in February and decided that it was too great a deal to pass up so we went for a five day weekend. We didn't want to stay in Waikiki because it was too busy and too expensive so we ended up camping at Malaekahana Beach for $5 a night. It was perfect to wake up every morning and be just a few yards from the beach. We had a great time despite some bad weather at the beginning of the trip. It was truly paradise.
