Pride of America Review, Hawaiian Cruise Day Six

Continued from Hawaiian Cruise Day Five – Kona

Within moments of stepping foot on Kauai we were reminded why it is our favorite island. There’s just something about it that calls to us, a dream like magic invades every cell and you never want to leave.

I am lucky to have a dear friend who lives on the island, and she picked me up and whisked me away for a day of fun in Waimeia, where we listened to one of her friends play music at Kalapaki Joes in Waimeia Kaui Hawaii.

My friend surprised me with a stay in a three bedroom Hawaiian style cottage overlooking the ocean. Beautiful! And the stars at night, wow!

Jed and Milo walked off the boat to the beach in front of the Marriott where Milo happily played in the water for hours!

Back on the ship they went and saw Charles Bach the magician on board perform. What a great magician, and such a nice guy! He inspired Milo to take up magic. He’s entertaining, very talented and just an overall good showman. You can find out more about this very talented guy at

Later that night Jed and Milo saw Chris Alpine, the comedian. Jed said Milo couldn’t stop laughing! Chris Alpine’s performance that night was the all-ages early show, which is followed every evening by a later adults only show. You can view his web site at

After obtaining a degree in Sociology she worked as a flight attendant for United Airlines so that she could combine her work with something she’s always loved, travel.

She moved with her family from Port Townsend, WA to Sintra, Portugal in 2016. They said they’d try it out for a year and never left! Leveraging her U.S. real estate background and the insights she’s gained over the years into Portuguese life, she works with the Brightman Group, guiding international buyers and connecting sellers. She loves her work and finds delight in helping people find their ‘spot’ in the world.

Hollin's passions also include spending quality time with family and friends, seeking out excellent food and writing. She writes in a variety of genres, from YA, to literary short stories, non-fiction and engaging travel pieces. Her current focus is on writing a memoir about what brought her family to Portugal. The first excerpt will be published soon at The Portugal News. Hollin has garnered acclaim for her remarkable storytelling skills, praised by critics for her ability to authentically capture the essence of the human experience with warmth and depth.
