I’ve been traveling weekly to our Hawai’i Island campus this school year. In fact, I’ll be taking 34 trips in all.

So I’ve been earning a lot of mileage points. In fact, I’ll soon have enough HawaiianMiles for a free round-trip award. At first I had hoped to go to Tokyo, but I’ll only have enough for the mainland. Because the points are the same for the entire continent, I’m thinking New York!

I was able to spend one day in NYC in 2005 during an ISTE conference in Philly. We did the tourist thing: Empire State Building, Times Square, Central Park, Ground Zero, Wall Street, Battery Park, and even a Mets baseball game. This time, I’ll be exploring neighborhoods. I want to get lost in Greenwich, Chelsea, Chinatown, and Little Italy. I also plan to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the High Line.

Hope to be there in Spring of 2015….
