On December 25, 2007, Terrie and I traveled to Christmas Island. Christmas Island is located 1200 miles south of Hawaii and is one of many islands in the Republic of Kiribati (formerly the Gilbert Islands).

While Christmas Island is about a three hour flight from Hawaii and is in the same time zone, it is across the International dateline. We left Hawaii on 25 December, and three hours later, when we landed on Christmas Island, it was December 26!

We stayed at the Captain Cook Hotel, which is located on the north coast of Christmas Island.

Our "Cabin" was located right on the beach.

Our first night, the staff of the Capt Cook Hotel entertained us with some local songs.
