You had me at Aloha
After a rather long and uncomfortable flight from Vancouver (something about people who take up 2 seats should be made to pay for 2!) we were delighted to touch down in Honolulu. After a wonderful welcome with a band playing at the baggage carousel we hopped in a taxi and made our way to The Beach Waikiki Hostel, our home for the next 8 nights. The hostel was previously holiday apartments so we were staying in a private room of a two bed apartment with a shared living room, bathroom and kitchenette. Unfortunately, despite most of the hostel having been recently renovated, we were in an apartment that had not been touched since the 80's but hey, it had a comfortable king sized bed and powerful air con so we couldn't complain too much. After a quick trip to the convenience store to grab some water we crashed out.
We enjoyed a long lie and then grabbed a quick coffee for breakfast before going for a wander through Waikiki, we (and by we, I mean Katy) did a bit of window shopping in Tiffanys and Harry Winstons, however the budget most definitely didn't stretch that far! Despite not being big fans of the beach we found ourselves a relatively quiet spot and parked ourselves up with our books for the rest of the morning. Having been going at 100mph since we left home back in July it was most definitely a welcome break!
