Review: Thrilling, doors-off Oahu helicopter tour with Magnum (P.I.) Helicopters

Oahu is beautiful to see from ground level, but viewing it from the air adds a whole new level of fascination. We gained a new appreciation for the island as we soared above with Magnum Helicopters.

Of course a helicopter tour is exciting enough, but we were about to ride in the same helicopter that’s used in the new Magnum P.I. television series!

Trading Divorce for Travel

Reflecting on it now, it seems appropriate that my husband and I took a weekend trip to sign our divorce papers.  At the time, I was living in New York City and he in San Diego.  In an attempt to be amicable, we decided to meet in Palm Springs for the “official” signing.  It was a typical Palm Springs weekend that we’d experienced dozens of times before: the air hot and dry, with oily and glistening leathery women sprawled out on chaise lounges around the pool.  The difference this time was that...

The airline’s strategy appears to be looking for any random opportunity that ...
