This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

An Island Within an Island

That is what Hilton Hawaiian Village on Waikiki reminds me of. When I first visited this place as I kid, I felt like the Village was a world in and of itself, and it still is. Nestled at the ocean’s edge, it’s great for swimming, surfing, SUP exploring, lounging, and people-meeting. It has restaurants—some with music and dancing, lawn parties, and shops. Really, a person could never leave the property and have a terrific time.

Then there are the waterfalls, pools, tropical animals and flowers.

On this trip, I loved my room and especially the fact that these flowers magically appeared the morning after I arrived. Could a stay be any better?!

And the Village can’t be beat if you’re traveling solo. I have a friend who went through a traumatic experience and needed to escape. She came here alone, felt safe, and said it was the perfect remedy.
