Today, after a number of airline delays, we headed off to Hawaii. We got to the airport with plenty of time to spare so we could have dinner at Cafe Vue, which was very nice.
At about 10pm, we took off for Honolulu, looking forward to a relaxing time after a very busy last 12 months.
We landed in Honolulu around 9am, on the same day we left Melbourne (due to the 21 hour time difference). As a result of the flight departure delay in Melbourne, we had already pushed back our connecting flight to Lanai but this also ended up being delayed! So, instead of arriving mid-morning in Lanai as planned, it was late afternoon before we got there. We were greeted at the airport by the hotel staff, who drove us to the hotel.
After checking in, we headed to One Forty, one of the restaurants in the hotel, for an early dinner. We had a lovely meal and then retired early to bed.
