Sorry for the delay in updates. There hasn’t been much to update as we are at the end of our trip and spent the last four nights in Oahu (Hawaii).
We left New Zealand on Tuesday evening and arrived Tuesday morning in Hawaii. Due to crossing over the international dateline we got the day back we lost when traveling to Australia.
Lucky once again we had a seat between us on the 8hr flight and had an exit row which made the flight more enjoyable. When we arrived in Hawaii we went to Pearl Harbor to see the memorial.
Once done at the memorial we had what David calls the best burger of the trip, at McDonald’s.
Opting to stay in a less populated part of the island we drove to the north shore. Stopping at beaches along the way. We even got to see a turtle!
Upon checkin the receptionist told us about an upgrade in rooms (I wanted a sunset view) so we would have better views and more amenities. We really enjoyed the upgrade and are glad we did it after traveling for so long.
We spent our days trying to get up early (to help adjust for the time change), eating breakfast in bed or on the patio, sitting on the beach, swimming in the pool and enjoying the sunsets. We decided not to do any exploring and just relax! A little vacation from our adventure.
In the end we have experienced a lot, learned, grew opinions, let go and are ready for our next adventure that starts in less than a week.
