Two years ago we planned a family holiday for the middle of March, and we were happy to be traveling to the Hawaiian Islands, and we would be leaving behind a frozen wasteland because our daytime temperatures in the middle of January or normally about 10 degrees. We could not wait to reach the sandy shores and feel the warm sun on our faces. We planned the trip for months and even had a list of activities that we wanted to be able to do while we were there, however when we landed, we found out that they were experiencing much colder weather than they normally did. We had planned for long sunny afternoons on the beach, but in fact we spent many of them bundled in sweatshirts and jeans. We were there for 12 days and 6 of them were rainy and cloudy. We also discovered that most of the condominiums that you rent in that area don’t have any source of heat, they only have air conditioning systems. Our dreams of a tropical, warm sunny holiday were absolutely not to be. We made the best of it, and we went to most of the museum’s. On the afternoons that were warm and sunny we took in a snorkeling trip and even a luau at the beach, but it was very frustrating to have spent so much time and effort in planning a holiday, not to mention the money, only to spend it with low temperatures and rain. Coming home to our wonderfully comfortable Heating, Ventilation, and A/C system, which was more pleasant than our holiday at that point.
