Post preview: travel, Quinceañera, and general world news

This isn’t a full post- no time, as we just got back to Honolulu today and must get ready for school/work/life starting again tomorrow.  But a general idea of what will be coming up in the next few weeks…

  • travel via Alaska Airlines to JFK, picking up a rental car and dropping it off in NJ.  Includes details on Budget’s e-toll service.
  • our reward stay at Holiday Inn Secaucus, paid for by IHG points.
  • travel via United’s nonstop from Newark (EWR) to  Honolulu (HNL). Spoiler alert: nope nope nope.
  • a modest Quinceañera trip report.  It was a wonderful, beautiful, fun event.

Finally, a general support statement regarding the US Presidential election outcome.  All are welcome here.  No hate, no discrimination, equal rights for all.  If you don’t agree, leave.  If you do agree, please enjoy the posts coming soon 🙂
