    Aloha from Waikiki!

    May 10, 2017 in the United States

    Wowzer! I'm actually in Hawaii!!!

    11am, Wed 10 May for the second time, having crossed the International Date Line overnight: Maybe it's because I'm tired, but I just refilled my mug of tea from the maple syrup jug. Language isn't a problem but the cultural misunderstandings just keep coming! It so looked like tea ... sigh. I confess that part of me is longing for the familiarity of home.

    7pm: Settled and sorted 😎 I've got some good tips about things to do. All is good. I could keep the Japanese theme going if I wanted ... suchi and bento boxes and Japanese sweets in the supermarket.

    My hostel is very clean and best of all they gave me my room at 11am when checkin is at 3pm. I'm very grateful - they are good guys here.

    After dinner the women headed to Victoria secret to get some bras and knickers- ( Alison is putting her name down for a job at Hooters now!) we left the store when it closed at 11pm and walked back to hotel a bit worn out after a big shopping day.Read more

    Beach and Bar

    May 15 in the United States

    Breky on the balcony overlooking the beach is hard to take- going to miss this beautiful view! Did a bit of shopping and then went to the beach. Some interesting sights today- a lady doing her aerobics and splits on the wet sand, and another lady talking to her baby doll in her handbag- only in Waikiki! They have king tides here at the moment so we advised the boys to move their towels further away from the water- boys being boys did t listen and they all got soaked by a big wave- we didn’t laugh much- lol!
    Happy hour on the balcony watching sunset followed by drinks and dinner at Tikii bar- Glenn added a “Weston” sign next to the Sydney signpost outside the bar! A fun evening and a lovely meal.
