    Time to move on

    January 24 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Today we had to return our rental car to the airport and move down the road to our third timeshare condo. We weren’t renting a car for the coming week so I arranged a ride with the Avis shuttle that was going to the cruise terminal, a short distance from our condo. He kindly dropped us off at the resort entrance. Besides our luggage we had two boxes of food so we weren’t exactly travelling light! I knew there were no grocery stores nearby and without a car I had to stock up on food, wine and beer for the week. I checked-in with the front reception and was pleased that the move went smoothly, or so I thought. Then JS informed me that he had left his CPAP on the shuttle bus and was convinced it was gone forever. JS is irrational and very negative when these things happen. So back to the office I went and made arrangements to meet the Avis driver at the cruise port, a 10 minute walk. Within 15 minutes the same driver showed up, JS retrieved his CPAP and all was well in his world. We then splurged on a delicious lunch at a nearby oceanfront restaurant called Dukes.

    There is a beautiful, extensive Marriott Resort next door to Dukes but the beach is public. Our condo is a ten-minute walk from here on the other side of the tracks! We’re in a two-storey townhouse with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, at least 1200 sq ft. It’s a bit dated but very clean and was my best deal yet....$199 for the full week! Of course we got hit with Hawaii’s high accommodation tax and a resort fee, another $167, but still well within our budget. The other two condos were $550 and $475/week, a fraction of their regular cost. Finding these last-minute bargains in high-priced, high-demand Hawaii has been a challenge and it’s not for the faint of heart as I was never 100% confident that I would find us a home!

    Auf Wiedersehen Kauai

    August 7, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Heute heißt es Abschied nehmen von Kauai. Unser Flieger geht nach Big Island. Nachdem wir Kauai Coffee besichtigt haben, shoppen wir zunächst bei Macy's. Schwimmklamotten und Unterhosen stehen auf der Shoppingliste.

    Danach geht es auf der Suche nach etwas zu essen zu Walmart und letztendlich landen wir doch, der Airportnähe geschuldet, bei einem Subway. Wir nehmen uns Sandwiches mit und fahren an den nahegelegenen Strand.

    Hier erweist sich wieder einmal als positiv, dass es auf Hawaii keine privaten, sondern nur öffentliche Strände gibt. Wir können uns nämlich direkt an einem Strand auf eine Bank setzen und unsere Sandwiches vertilgen. Unsere Bank liegt idyllisch nah am Wasser. Doch dank Hurricane Hector fallen die Wellen zum Teil etwas heftiger aus als üblich, so dass eine große Welle direkt an einer Mauer bricht und bis zu unserer Bank spritzt, so schnell wird man nass. 😄

    Nach unserer Sandwichpause tanken wir unser Auto wieder voll, geben es bei Alamo wieder ab und fahren mit dem Shuttle zum Terminal. Boardingpässe ausdrucken, Gepäck labeln und abgeben, Sicherheitskontrolle und schon warten wir am Gate auf unseren Big Island Flieger.
