Aloha Jennifer,
I love reading your blog and have learned great travel ideas! I’ve been out of the US only 1 time; driving from Phoenix to Mexico. So I have little knowledge of international travel.
I am planning a trip as a gift for my adult son to visit his friend in Davao Philippines mid-Jun; leaving from Maui, HI. Do you, or any readers have suggestions of best flights, cost, airline miles, cheap housing for 1 month, adventure and food experiences, non-denominational church experiences, laws out of the ordinary I need to be aware of (I’m very law abiding and yet aware that differences from US are a reality).
I have some airline miles on United, Hawaiian Air and British Airways.
If you, readers or other blog sites could share information with me, I would be so grateful.
Mahalo! Sandy
