Jan 27th 2011 6:20PM I've been to Waikiki twice and I always tell first-timers who insist on going to keep it to two days max. The North Shore and Lanikai/Kailua areas are much prettier with better beaches. Outside of Waikiki, Oahu is actually a great island to visit. It can't compare to Kauai or the Big Island in terms of sheer beauty or activity, but it's still worth a visit.
Regarding your other destinations, I especially appreciate when your experts offered up alternatives, so thanks!
Jan 16th 2011 12:37AM Tej is on just about every menu for the many Ethiopian restaurants here in Berkeley and Oakland, so I'm surprised to hear you write that it's not so well known in the West and available by special request.
Jul 18th 2010 12:56AM We spent 12 days in Ireland in November 2009, during what was termed the worst storm of a millennium and even then sites like Cashel and The Burren were simply awe-inspiring (it helped that we had the whole rock to ourselves). Given the history of both locations I can't understand why they wouldn't be contenders for the classification.
