Vice President Joe Biden will be making a one-day stop in Hawai‘i tomorrow, July 14—part of a trip that includes Los Angeles, Melbourne and Sydney, Australia, and Auckland, New Zealand. Blink and you’ll miss him, though—this is strictly a work trip. Biden is scheduled to meet with Deputy Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, Japanese Vice Foreign Minister Shinsuke Sugiyama and Republic of Korea First Vice Foreign Minister Lim Sung-nam, to discuss international relations between the three allies.


He’ll also be taking some time to visit the USS John C. Stennis and observe the multinational, ongoing Rim of the Pacific exercises and meet with U.S. and international troops. And then he’s off to Australia for a series of activities that include visiting the Boeing factory and delivering a major policy speech on the future of the U.S./Australia relationship.


No word on whether Biden plans to make any stops for shave ice.
