After my great Qantas flight which was somewhat empty, (I had the seat next to me free), I arrived in Honolulu pretty much feeling great. I had apparently gotten some sleep on the flight as I don’t remember much of it anyway. Once I arrived, I heard the perfect combination of the announcements in Japanese and English and I felt like it was going to be a great place for me. I then headed to the next gate to my innerisland flight to Kauai. After a short 35 minute flight, we landed in Lihue, Kauai and I headed out to the street to find Rebecca. I saw her from the back and ran up to her and hugged her surprising her! We then hopped in the car and drove shortly to the condo, and headed for the beach. There we saw Mitch, Laurie and the whole gang. There’s about 30 of Rebecca’s family here which is so fun, as I’ve spent a lot of time with them when I was living in the Bay Area.
After my arrival, we hung out on the beach for a while and got some sun, ate some good food, and chatted the whole day. It’s so great to be here and finally get caught up with Rebecca! We then met Pele and Iseah at the Duke Restaurant and hung out with them for the rest of the night. They were locals and showed us a fantastic sushi restaurant. We had a great time meeting them and learning more about what the locals do on this paradise island.
