Travel 101 – Part 1 At some point most people who live in Hawaii get it — the itch to go somewhere, even if it’s just to another island. We get it too sometimes, and while we don’t travel as much as we might want, we still like to do it and have fun while we’re going. This week, we explored how tech can help plan your trip, whether on a budget or in style — help with getting there, where to stay, moving around, and finding things to do while you’re there. Join Jonathan, L.D, Sam, and special guest Tracy as we explore travel, techie style. Additionally, the KAOI station manager was kind enough to remind us that hey! There are some great travel shows on 1110AM! Plus, our Quest Retreats: Adventure Retreats for Nerds! And if you missed our interview with her last July? Parts ONE and TWO are here! Rudy Maxa’s World! Frommer’s Travel Guides! Ready for hour two? Click here!
