I've got it bad.... Kauai Fever

My trip isn't until May 2013 but I've got a serious case of Kauai fever.

I read the forums multiple times a day, browse through my guide books, look at pictures and videos online.

I even pulled up this week's Kauai Safeway ad to check grocery prices because I'm running out of things to plan and research.

Can't wait, sure hope this next six months goes by fast. In the meantime I'll be living vicariously through everyone else.

Anyone else have a problem with Kauai fever?

1.Purchase a guidebook and start reading up.

2. Read top questions to the right of this thread.

3. Rent a car

4. keep following Trip Advisor and read all trip reports and take notes

5. Buy a guidebook (oh I said that)

Thanks for that.

Also- any recommendations on a pay as you go SIM card service?

Your plans are a little different from here in OZ, and wanted to know if you can get a sim card at Honolulu airport whilst in transit on the way to Kauai.

Any recommendations???

I've had it since I spent a week there for a big birthday in 2009.... and I've been searching the website since. I'm even on the newsletter list for the Kauai visitors bureau and love getting them.

My last trip was cancelled due to illness .. waiting now for that surgeon to say "go ahead, book that holiday" .. and I'm outa here and on my way...!

As soon as you get on that plane to go home, you'll be planning the return trip.

The fever lasts for life...! There is no way anyone can fix it.
