Arrival, Getting lost in Honolulu and the joy of LAX

Hey Everyone... after several million hours, we're here!! Ok, Several million might be a bit OTT, but thats what it felt like. The flight from Heathrow to LAX was very long, but not too bad from a comfort point of view due to some spare seats. That was all well and good until we got to LAX. Going through US immigration was easier that I thought it would be, as was checking the bags through for Honolulu. The fun came going through security to get onto the Honolulu flight. The guards were sullen to say the least, and everyone got told off for something!! Ah well, it's an experience.

The Honolulu flight was far less enjoyable. No leg room, no body room and the plane broke before we took off so we were sat on the runway for 30 minutes whilst they fixed it. We then spent 5.5 hours with cramp before arriving in HL. Getting the car was easy, getting lost wasn't as easy and not the best fun, but we finally got to the hotel and checked....

So... 30 hours of travel in total, a slight detour around downtown HL and we made it!

Aloha!
