We gave his personal assistant our advice. Then we waited.
Sort of waited, anyway, to see if Travelocity’s Roaming Gnome would stop by any of the photo op spots we recommended on our HawaiiMagazine.com list of the Top 5 Hawaii places the ceramic icon to all-things-travel-related should visit.
The online travel agency’s pointy-headed mascot has been on a tour of the Islands this past week after voters in a Travelocity online poll selected Hawaii as the latest locale he should visit on his “Summer of Possibilities” publicity tour.
Sadly, on the final day of the gnome's Hawaiian vacation yesterday, we found that our dwarvish fellow traveler had elected to check out only one location on our Top 5 list: Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island of Hawaii.
No worries, little guy. A visit to Iao Needle on Maui would've been sweet. But, perhaps, next time.
Still, the Roaming Gnome and his small entourage of handlers did manage to take in a good number of sights on their week-long tour of the Islands. We’ve been following along, and thought we’d share some of our favorite Hawaii shots from the Roaming Gnome’s Facebook photo albums.
Just queue up some Hawaii music on your computer for an apropos soundtrack and enjoy the slideshow below!
A hui hou, R.G.! Malama pono.
