I am a university professor in Montreal. I have lived and worked in USA, Canada, France, Germany and Brazil. Lately my wife and I have been going away to warmer places once or twice each Winter. We enjoy snorkeling and just being near the ocean looking at lush tropical vegetation. We really liked Hawaii and look forward to going back in February 2012 for 8 days (Oahu and Kauai). On this trip we will also be looking around for a 2-3 month apt. rental in Honolulu in Fall 2012 or Winter 2013.
