Peter and I were busy little bees this weekend, crossing our wine tasting (more on that later), cocktail party invitations, and Hawaii tickets off of our to-do list!
For our plane tickets, we tried Priceline "name our your price" for the first time. I've done this a bunch of times for hotels and car rentals, but have always been put off by the lack of control with flight times. But, this is a long trip, and we have lots of flexibility, so it felt like a good time to try it out.
The initial (super-lowball) bid was rejected, but just like hotel bids, they came back to us with different options that they would accept for a bit more money. We ended up booking a trip that left one day later than we initially bid for, and saved about $300 in airfare based on currently published prices. Pretty good, right?
We also finalized a reservation for a week in Pau Hana Coffee Plantation guest house. A real live coffee plantation! All the photos are from them. I can't wait!
