I attended a conference in Hawaii last week.
Leaving Melbourne on Wednesday at 10pm from Sydney I arrived at 10am Wednesday in Hawaii, 21 hours behind.
A couple of clients joined me, we relaxed by the beach all of Wednesday and had some Pina Coladas. Thursday we went scuba diving in the morning and on a kayak safari in the afternoon with more Pina Coladas in the evening.
Friday was the seminar, only 4 hours required then shopping and more Pina Coladas. I found some fantastic running shoes. Break through in technology I think.
