After finishing up her year in New Zealand, Annaliese decided to move to Hawaii. For my birthday (and Valentine's Day, and our upcoming anniversary), Paul said I could go visit her.
I took Josiah with me.
Good gravy, that's a long flight (6.5 hours). And I swear the screen said, "5 minutes remaining" for at least 20 minutes. We were dying. I know, it's shorter than going to China, but it still felt like forever.
But eventually we got checked in to our hotel and wandered out to find a bite to eat. I love all the lit tiki torches in Waikiki!
We found a little second floor Mexican restaurant with a view of the beach.
The food was really good.
In fact, we ended up going back there another night.
Our hotel left something to be desired. I think I've gotten spoiled staying in 4 star hotels in China.
But it was a place to crash between adventures.
And if you stand in the right spot and use your imagination, it even has a view of the mountains.
