We departed Narita at 20 minutes past 9 pm, sitting comfortable on the second floor of a 747. Once we were allowed we declined our seats horizontally and slept. Well, except for the dinner and breakfast.
When we arrived at the Honolulu airport it was still morning the same day, al,ost time to go to the office… Except we were half a world away, and on vacation 🙂
Once the shuttle bus dropped us off at the hotel we thought we could check in quickly and meet Robert in his room, but that was not going to happen. The Waikiki Sand Villa had messed up our booking. The first message I got when asking about Robert and his room was that he never checked in :-O
It turned out that because I booked online for all 3 of us and then sent an email to the hotel to ask them to give us connecting room they had booked 4 rooms instead of 2. Finally, after having refused to pay for all four rooms (only after that had they cleared things up) we checked into our room.
Knocking on the door to Robert’s room was without result. Turned out they put him in another room and us in his room.
Once we met we got ready for shopping. Though neither Chie nor I found much to shop this time… What a disappointment 😉
Back at the hotel we had 5 minutes rest before Chie went on a shopping tour in Waikiki while Robert and I walk around. Finally ending up on the beach just in time for some rain and rainbow before the sun set.
After the sun set we slowly walked to Duke’s restaurant where we had a table for 3 reserved at 7:15 pm. The dinner was quite OK for being American, and the desert was humongous.
Back at the hotel Chie and I dropped dead in our beds, and I guess Robert did the same in his.
