Just a quick update to say I’m here in Hawaii, and I have internet (at least for a moment!). Things you should know:
-Air New Zealand is fabulous. I want to kiss them. They gave us hokeypokey Kapiti Ice Cream with dinner. And I got to watch Dr Who for my whole trip. Being on an airplane was actually fun!
-Being a taxi driver in Hawaii is easy. 1) You don’t have to know how to drive (not a single turn signal used in 40 minutes in the cab) and 2) You aren’t expected to know how to get ANYWHERE. I had to have a map book and give directions.
– It is so HOT. OMG. I’m on my third shower in 12 hours and am about to go swimming.
– The air smells so good. And it is so soft. And trade winds are wonderful. I feel like I’m in a hug.
– I’m off to swim and eat malasadas and poke and Mexican food. Heaven.
Sounds awesome! Hubby was born on the Big Island, near Hilo, and he needs to take me there. Have a great trip!.
Yes he does! Hilo is wonderful!
It’s good to know you have arrived safely and are having a great time. My profuse aplologies I meant to ring BEFORE you left doh!
Go Air NZ!! Presumably the usual immaculate service and non stop Dr Who AND hokey pokey Kapiti icecream – now that is my idea of a preferred airline!
Take care and have a ball :-)Ka kite ano
