travelers with music, an open bar and the recognition that we’re all part of a global family.

glorious Angel on horseback heralds the Lord’s coming as wise men from the East with real life camels come to
witness the blessed miracle, as well as the townspeople with their sheep, goats, donkeys and cows. The powerful
music and narration of our nativity scene, and the message of hope and everlasting life that it brings will change your life!

Express in Elkhart. On our 2nd day, we will visit several places including an Amish Wind Chime Maker, a

Join me for a trip to the Hawaiian Islands in March of 2023. Let’s get away from the winter weather and enjoy a
couple weeks in the sun! March is a delightful time to visit Hawaii because the whales are having their babies and we
can often see them breeching from the shore. We will depart on Thursday, March 2nd, and fly to Hawaii. Arriving
at our hotel we will be a block from Waikiki Beach. It will be early evening there and due to the time change, it will be a
long day for us. On Friday, we’ll relax – sleep in if you choose – and learn your way around the hotel and
surrounding area. Perhaps hanging out on Waikiki Beach will be enjoyable for you. On Saturday afternoon we will
head to the ship terminal and board the Norwegian Cruise Line’s “Pride of America” for a week long cruise. The cruise
will take us to the four major islands where you will have an opportunity to purchase shore excursions of your
choice on each island. The meals on the cruise ship and many ship activities will be included for your enjoyment.
Returning to Honolulu, we will stay for three additional nights at the same hotel in Waikiki. Since you’ll already be
rested and know your way around, you can really enjoy some local activities. I will schedule day trips to Pearl
Harbor and a city tour as well as a day to the Polynesian Cultural Center. These are places that I recommend
everyone take time to see especially if it is your first trip to Hawaii. Aloha!
