This week I first discuss the the latest trending news in travel, including the tragic situation in Israel and how it has impacted travel, the safest places to travel this fall, cruise pricing on the rise, and much more.
Later, I interview Ilihia Gionson, Public Affairs Officer for the Hawaii Tourism Authority.
Gionson provides updates on the phases of West Maui's reopening for tourism, as well as what travelers can expect and how they can help.
The interview around West Maui begins just after the 12-minute mark.
