Aloha Hawaii!

Not many people are fortunate enough to travel through time, but this week Josh and I got to live through Tuesday 27th of April twice.

Through the plane's window, we could see the sun begin to rise to reveal our destination: Oahu, Hawaii. We had just spent another sleepless night in cramped seats and after miles of ocean, we were thrilled to see land ahead.

Hawaii is just how I imagined, only a little more like Vice City in Grand Theft Auto. As we walked the streets of Waikiki, Josh had been offered "Hawaii's finest bud" 3 times in the first hour. But always when I wasn't looking or out of earshot. I'm a bit offended that I apparently don't look like I know how to have a good time.

A great way to pass the time when you so jet lagged is to watch a little TV. In our hotel room we have 40 channels and all quality American programming. The problem is the fast food ads are making us want to vomit; each is more unhealthy than the last. Piles of meat upon cheese upon bacon fill the screen and this is meant to be appealing? KFC proudly introuduced it's Double Down chicken sandwich and apparently there was "no room for the bun". Two bits of chicken are the bread!!

When out and about, you have to watch out for the scammers looking for foolish tourists. Some carry birds, that they want you to hold so they can charge you; others are trying to sell you scuba/skydiving. We might just be some of those foolish tourists. We have signed up for a Friday night pub crawl that, we are told, has been running for nearly 20 years. We will be representing Australia, so we hope to do her proud! We'll let you know how that goes.

Say hi to our mums for us!



Nice one Loz! Pub crawl and "say hi to our Mums for us" almost in the same sentence! Keep up the blogging, you're doing a great job x
