Southwest Airlines begins service to Hawaii

Earlier this week, plucky budget carrier Southwest Airlines finally began selling tickets to my home state––Hawaii! In a statement, Southwest announced service to the Hawaiian islands of Oahu (Honolulu), Hawaii Island (Kona), Kauai (Lihue––shoutout to my hometown) and Maui (Kahului). Nonstop service to the Aloha State on Southwest begins with California cities including Oakland and San Jose with more information about flights from San Diego and Sacramento to be announced in the coming weeks.

Currently, reservations through June can be booked via the airline’s website.

Of course, you can still get to Hawaii from other Southwest gateways, but you’ll have to purchase separate, connecting flights if you want to fly Southwest. The airline continues to build out its schedule.

Southwest had this to say, as reported by USA Today, “As we continue to add service to Hawaii and increase some of our technical capabilities, we will only see more cities gain connections to the state.”

I want to be where sand and sea play while the sun radiates overhead. There’s a place I know, where the sun shines brightest and the Pacific, deceivingly inviting makes it all the more alluring. A place where the sand stretches for as long as the sun shines. A place where you can gorge on the spoils of Mother Nature’s buffet if you’re willing to do the prep work.

To get to this place, persistence (and a cooler full of goodies) pays in spectacular sunsets, a sense of awe and a renewed belief in the world beyond our tiny screens.

We’re already a third of the way through the year with no signs of slowing down. Here’s what you missed in April:

  • My first world problem freak out about how I intend to maintain my fitness routine abroad, although I suspect all of the eating I’ll be doing in Madrid and Lisbon this month will be the brunt of my “core” work 😉
  • This photo of a lazy Kaua’i afternoon in the North Shore
  • My friend Jill’s recipe for Curative Chicken Soup!

Here’s what’s happening in May and what you can expect in terms of more Curious Passport posts:

  • Tapas hopping in Madrid
  • Surfing in Portugal
  • Volcano hiking in the Azores
  • Wandering in Berlin

However, before I leave, I’m nearly finished with #FivePeakChallenge, hosted by Mission Trails Regional Park – here’s evidence of completing hike three of five to the top of North Fortuna Summit:
