I used this mainly to plan activities for my week in Maui. I'd already picked the town and lodging I wanted. I picked a surf lesson company and a snorkel trip, and both were great. I wished this book had more photos and took advantage more of the Nook multimedia platform.
I kinda liked it but then again ill read anything i get my hands onto
