About the Hawaii Vacation Connection
HAWAII VACATION CONNECTION
Live from Honolulu Hawaii
Aloha! My name is Bruce Fisher. I’m a Hawaii Vacation Evangelist and the founder of Hawaii-Aloha.com. I have lived here in the islands for 18 years and have developed a special affinity and enthusiasm for this wonderful place. I’m so grateful that each and every day I can help folks plan and make their vacation dreams come true.
Over the last few years I have embraced blogging, podcasting, vodcasting and social networking because it has given me the opportunity to share the things I love about Hawaii and offer valuable information to readers. I think it’s very important that, when you visit Hawaii, you are able to connect in a real way with the people who live here. My goal has been to use this blog to help establish that connection.
