The idea of going to Hawaii came up when I was leaving my previous employer, that I wanted to go somewhere to relax and enjoy myself. So the day after my final check arrived, I signed up for unemployment, and packed my bags for a little vacation to Hawaii! So this morning, Steve, a lawyer friend of mine, got a cab and picked me up for our little Hawaiian adventure. We arrived at the airport and boarded our flight and several hours later were touching down in Honolulu. When we landed, to save some cash, we opted to take the cheap shuttle bus to Waikiki, which was the biggest mistake ever. It took forever, and was completely not worth the savings on money, because after almost an hour and a half, we got out of the bus not at our hotel, but were in somewhat walking distance of where we thought our hotel was. 6 blocks later, we came to the same name of our hotel, and I was shocked, because it looked nothing like what the hotel was supposed to look like according to online pictures. We went in, and asked about the reservation, of course to not be found, and then found out that there’s yet another hotel, under the same name, just 2 more blocks down. So relieved that it was this bigger nicer hotel, we went over, got into our room, and unpacked to get ready for the beach.
We spent the rest of the day on the beach getting some sun, and enjoying the water, then grabbed some dinner and walked around the streets. It was so nice to be outside in the evening with shorts and sandals on–was perfect weather. We then thought about any other activities that we wanted to do before Steve was to leave, and I was to go to the Big Island, for my more ‘rugged’ adventure with my friend Tim.
