The best way to put a damper on your vacation is to battle royale with American Airlines at 7am.
But I am stronger than I look, I will not be defeated by American.
So as much as I love sitting in the middle seat for 8 hours, as we all would, I finally haggled my way into an aisle seat. It only cost me my first born but I guess the lucky (or unlucky) person who gets my old seat gets to keep all their kids.
So what does one do after a stressful morning of arguing and coffee?
I don’t know about other people but I’m going to the pool.
I’m not quite sure how, but after 8 days of being here, on a beach, I still have no tan. I’ll try and remedy that at the pool this afternoon. With a Mai Tai.
Normally I start my day with green juice. But that’s Louisiana and this is Hawaii. So I’ll normally start my day with a mimosa (“no orange juice please”) and if I ‘accidentally’ had a glass (or two) too much of wine the night before (a common mistake around here), a chocochip waffle.
“Do you want that gluten-free?”
“It’s a chocolate chip waffle. Honestly, at this point just leave the gluten in there.”
Green juice and gluten free chocochip waffles. What is the world coming to.
When your hotel has a map like a mall, it’s a sign it’s probably too big.
I’ve been lost for what seems two days now.
But it’s nice being lost within all the flowers.
And here I thought southern Louisiana was lush. Although it seems slightly ridiculous to compare Louisiana to a tropical island. The only thing they really have in common is humidity and a large tourist community.
Orchids must not cost as much here as they do at home.
Also the view is a little different than mine at home.
