Travel to Oahu

We were lucky that our flight to Honolulu was broken up with a layover in LA. So it was a 3.5 hour and a 5.5 hour flight. But man that flight from LA was tortuous. The seats seemed closer then usual, and the guy in front pushed his chair back and I felt like a sardine.

I am thankful that most of the kids on the plane was quiet but because the flight was during the day I was just restless. Played iphone games (Le Havre and Plants vs Zombies), tried to read a Brandon Sanderson novella, and the New Yorker.

We finally arrived at 8:30 am which is about midnight in Austin, it's a 4 hour difference. Andy had found us an airbnb and we got a little discount because they were improv folks, it's 80/night. It's in the hills overlooking waikiki, kinda suburby and small.

Oahu is the third island that Andy and I have been together since we both love Hawaii, we're trying to visit all the islands. It's definitely the most developed island. I've been here before as a teenager from Indonesia. It was the first time I saw porn! Just a regular drug store with porn magazines in the rack, hidden at the back. Of course I was fascinated! My first glimpse of a penis was a giant glorious black cock.

Anyways, back to tourism. Andy has decided that places we've been to alone doesn't count unless we're together. So this is island #3.

I work up around 5:30 am, jetlag! Now waiting for Andy to wake up so we can feed me!!!

I've never been to Hawaii, but I've heard that accomodations are crazy expensive... $80/night sounds great! Although when I read it the first time, I thought that you were saying that it was 80s night. Haha.

yeah there are ways to do it on the cheap. we usually mix it up and stay cheaply and then splurge on a nicer place for just 2 or 3 nights.

you would love hawaii! get out of canada during the vortex season :)
