Aloha Friends, Family & Clients.
MELE KALIKIMAKA from our kayak to yours.
What a fabulous year it has been. We've been lucky enough to share the world with so many of you. This year we sent several schools on field trips to Maui, and the Big Island. We sent travelers all over the world but to name a few; we helped clients with their trips to many European countries by land and sea, also the US mainland. Of course we always enjoy bringing clients to all the Hawaiian Islands. Anytime we can share our islands with clients, family or friends it is a real pleasure. In June 2014 we escorted a group of 30 persons on an Alaskan cruise tour, what an adventure it was!
What's new with us? Christopher is now thirteen and attending one of the top private schools of Hawaii, Mid-Pacific Institute. He is keeping great grades, just finished a great science fair project, loves technology and is getting close to working on his Eagle Scout project in Boy Scouts. He is now as tall as his Dad. Megan, our little princess, is now nine and enjoys ballet, dance, her animals and playing with friends. She is now in fourth grade. Megan just recently performed in the Nutcracker ballet at the Blaisdell Concert Hall, she was a mouse! It was a great experience for her and she hopes to do it again next year.
Lorrie is still running Travel Bug when she's not running the kids around to various activities. Bill is still working at UH and also onboard a local whale watch boat (the Navatek) on Saturdays as the lead Naturalist.
