Travel plans for 2015

scenic hawaii 007-A


Due to David’s arthritis, we won’t be traveling this year.

However, next year, we are determined to travel to Nevada to see Lisa graduate with a doctorate in physical therapy.  My sister in law, Pat, wants to join us.  We will probably make arrangements next January.

While in Nevada, we will spend time with Lisa before, during and after the graduation ceremony.

The next day, a limousine will pick us up at the hotel and take us to the airport, where we will board a helicopter that will tour the Grand Canyon.  While at the canyon, we will have a picnic lunch.  Then, the helicopter will return to the airport in Nevada, and a limousine will drive us back to our hotel.

The following day, we will fly to Albuquerque, New Mexico, where we will tour the city by bus and have dinner with my cousin, who is a dentist there.

The next day, we will return to Hawaii.

We anticipate a lovely trip in 2015, despite David’s arthritis, because not much walking will be required.

    Spontaneous days out can feel like a holiday. Bring a packed lunch and have a picnic. Or go on a bus tour with the tourists and see Hawaii from their eyes.

    Would David have time to travel this year having just started a new job?

    • gigihawaii Says:

      He started his new job on December 19, 2013, so anytime after that anniversary would be all right. He also could have told his boss about previously made plans earlier in the year and could have taken time off, if necessary.

    I’m glad you have plans to look forward to, even if they are for next year. And it will be wonderful to tour the amazing Grand Canyon. I hiked there many years ago.

  4. Tom Sightings Says:

    I don’t get it. If you live in Hawaii, why would you WANT to go anyplace else?

  5. Olga Says:

    Wow, you have things well planned. You will certainly not want to miss your daughter’s graduation.

  6. Joanne Says:

    Well planned, and the graduation ceremony will be lovely.

  7. Christine Says:

    Sounds wonderful!

  8. Beatrice Says:

    That sounds nice!!!!!

  9. Jeanie Says:

    Even if it is a ways off it is always fun to have a trip planned to look forward to. It sounds like this will be a good one and perfect for David’s abilities.

    Sounds as if you already have a busy schedule. I hope you like the Grand Canyon. I am surprised you can get a helicopter flight as congress banned them a few years ago. Something must have changed?

  11. Musings Says:

    Congratulations to Lisa. You must be so proud! Sounds like you’ve packed in lots of wonderful plans for your visit. That’s terrific!

  12. LC Says:

    Hope that you can work out a David-friendly Grand Canyon visit. As the beneficiary of physical and occupational therapy since my stroke, I am extra happy to hear of Lisa’s accomplishments. She will make such a difference in people’s lives.

  13. Denise Says:

    It sounds like a great trip Gigi, and I was just thinking it would be easy on David’s arthritis. Sorry you are still having problems with the comments. I have heard from one other blogger not related to me that they are also having issues. I am having none from this end.

  14. Linda Reeder Says:

    That sounds wonderful. I’m really glad you will get to see some of the wonderful sights there in the desert.

    The blog is back up again. Margaret is my former student who posted on her blog during her travels by ship around the world and then ceased when she got back home at St. Lawrence University, Canton, NY. Now she is in Quebec City, getting ready to take a group of students to Paris, France. I find her travels and travails very interesting
