We just came home from an amazing holiday in Oahu.......three locations after getting double booked. We stayed in Kailua, Makaha and the Illikai in Waikiki. It was a blessing in the end, even though we spent more money on accommodation, it was a wonderful variety.
I hesitated to post this because we obviously made a mistake and I don't want to be chastised :)))
My husband and I had a wonderful evening at the Shorebird Restaurant. When it was time to bbq our steak we even took our backpacks with us to the bbq area. After dinner I spotted a double hammock near the RumFire at the Sheraton on the grass. I held my backpack on the hammock and my husband put his directly below. Ten minutes later we got up and it had been stolen. It is totally our fault for letting our guard down but I wanted to hopefully prevent someone else from having to go through the same thing.
We filed a police report and spent an hour looking for where it might have been dumped. Contents? My new jacket, hat , sunglasses and sandals, an Apple adaptor along with a Hebrew bible my husband had been given when he was ordained. Cash? Maybe $20. I had the credit cards in my backpack so we were lucky. Please don't let your guard down and enjoy Oahu. I still love Hawaii! :) and it could have happened at home.
