It’s midnight and I’m not famous yet. A line from a Jimmy Buffett song summarizes the time changes world travelers attempt to navigate, to varying degrees of success.

It’s 6pm in Hilo, midnight in Orlando.

Two flights from Maui to Honolulu to Hilo.

Lunch with a colleague.

A brief phone call home.

  1. Hi Jeff!

    I really hope you had the opportunity to go to Aulani while you were in Hawai’i. It looks amazing and I hope I can take my family sometime.

    Have a great weekend!


  2. Brian, the opportunity didn’t happen, nor was it anticipated. The Big Island (two visits) and Maui were the focus.

    Hawaii is way more diverse than I thought.

    And Hilo is what many refer to as “old Hawai’i”.

    Hope you and your Family get to visit there some day.

    And thanks for stopping by. 🙂
