VH07V SPOTTED!

This week's "Spotted" shot for VH07V features a video Melissa Chang took on Hawaiian Airlines' inaugural flight to Brisbane Australia. She and Catherine Toth decided to interrupt my beauty rest (Lord knows I need all the help I can get) and take this funny, spontaneous footage. Much love for the VH07V shout out ladies! 8)

Aloha Brisbane! - Part I: Hawaiian Airlines Launches Their Newest Route to Australia (#AlohaBNE)

December 5th, 2012

Sorry peeps, still trying to catch up with everything, so no "Where In Hawaii" post this week, but here's a sneak peek at Part I of my Aloha Brisbane series. Hope you enjoy it!

Traveling to Australia has always been a dream of mine. I mean, let's face it, they've got so many interesting and unique things going for them...

  • Their seasons are completely opposite from ours.
  • They've got koalas and kangaroos to ogle over.
  • They have cute sayings like "G'day Mate!", "Barbie" (BBQ), and "Oi (Oi Oi)!" (LOL!)
  • Their toilet seats (supposedly) flush in the opposite direction.
  • Regional Beers like Hahn, Tooheys and XXXX.
  • And, uh, Vegemite... I guess.

So when the opportunity arose for me to join Hawaiian Airlines' inaugural flight to Brisbane, I could not say "Yer, mate" fast enough!

On Tuesday, November 27th, of 2012, Hawaiian Airlines launched its newest direct route to Australia's third most populous city: Brisbane. Like some of Hawaiian's previous inaugural flights (Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka, Seoul, New York City and Sapporo), they invited members of the (new) media to help document the journey, every step of the way. The recruits this time around were Melissa Chang (@Melissa808) of NonstopHonolulu.com, Catherine Toth (@thedailydish) of TheCatDish.com, Kaleo Lancaster (@islandtrails) of Island Trails, and myself (@worldwideed) of World-Wide-Ed.com.

It was a whirlwind 3 day, 2-night tour, but we definitely got to experience Brisbane the only way Hawaiian Airlines knows how: with Aloha. Here are some of the sights and sounds that we were fortunate enough to experience.
