HAWAII WINS… Let’s Aloha the Roaming Gnome When He Arrives

I mentioned the other day the Travelocity Roaming Gnome was having a contest to see where he should go next. Hawaii, Jamaica, or Cancun.

Well he just announced on Twitter that Hawaii has won by a very narrow margin:


  1. Hawaii and Cancun were soo close…. 56470 to 52057!!! #gnomeroams10 minutes ago from web

  2. Incredible! Over 100,000 votes. But the winner of my next adventure is Hawaii! Aloha! #gnomeroams17 minutes ago from web

So my hopes is that the Travelocity traveling gnome will visit all islands.

But of course… I’m preferable to the Big Island… We have So Much More Hawaii to give to the the Traveling Gnome.

Whatever island he does visit… let’s give him some “Aloha”.

Hōkūle’a: Meaning of the World Wide Voyage

Hōkūle’a crewmember Kaina Holomalia describes how the voyage to Palmyra Atoll connects to the greater purpose behind the worldwide voyage

Kaina was a watch captain on the recent voyage to Palmyra Atoll, 1,000 miles south of Hawai’i. Crewmembers are training for the Hōkūle’a Wolrdwide Voyage in which the traditional Hawaiian canoe will circumnavigate the Earth using ancient Polynesian navigation techniques. The crew carry with them the idea that we are all crew members on Canoe Earth and, just as on Hōkūle’a, we need to care for one another an our resources.
