Who's on board?

I am thinking of Jan 13-23 with a private room
Katherine Cram Sep 28, 2015 at 03:41 PM

I went last fall with a private room and balcony, and was delighted with the views and overall trip

I would like to bring a 4 wheel or 3 wheel walker with me. i case of stairs, my adult granddaughter can carry it.

HI Eileen,
I've changed my mind and will not be going to Hawaii this year. I am, however, looking for a roommate for a Central America trip. Any interest? It's #3217 Jan. 14-28.
Eileen Gaglia Jun 13, 2015 at 11:27 AM

I have a commitment Jan. 22, 23, and 24 so the dates will not work.

Roxanne Murner May 20, 2015 at 11:40 AM

Still looking for a roommate for either of the 2 Jan. dates 2016.

Roxanne Murner May 11, 2015 at 06:40 PM

Hi Frances, Happy to hear from you. My email is roxanne@casimurner.com Please email me your interests and tell me about yourself ( I'll do the same) and we'll see if we're compatible as roommates for this trip. Also, what excursions are you interested in during free time? Roxanne Murner

Frances Collier May 08, 2015 at 06:18 PM

I would be interested in having a roommate also. I have been to Hawaii (the big island) and Oahu (Pearl Harbor). I'm interested in learning more about the islands than just the touristy things.

Roxanne Murner Apr 30, 2015 at 09:55 AM

I'm considering this trip as a solo traveler on either of the Jan. dates 2016. Any other solos interested? Planning on going on these dates? I'm looking for people to hang with during free time and for some extra excursions.
I'll sign up for a roommate but there's no guarantee. Looking forward to meeting new people and enjoying the islands!
barbara parker Dec 04, 2015 at 01:50 PM

I will be a solo traveler.
