Another exciting trip to Hawaii that I booked months ago to take advantage of a 180+ day low-cost fare basis. Out of all of the Hawaiian islands, I always choose O'Ahu if I am travelling on my own. There's so much to see and do in Waikiki and I don't need to book a hire car to get around.

My first trip to Hawaii in more than 12 months - I'm getting withdrawal symptoms! This trip starts in Amsterdam and follows the well-trodden path of flying over to Hawaii via London Heathrow, New York JFK and Los Angeles LAX. I start with an initial positioning flight from Heathrow to Amsterdam.

When the sun rose, it became clear that the mist had stuck around overnight.  I wondered whether that might have an impact on flights.   As it happens it seemed to have absolutely no effect on flights into or out of CDG.  Perhaps partly due to having fewer scheduled flights just now? I wandered back to […]

Woke at 6am – I had set my alarm for 7am.  Felt fairly rested even considering the very soft mattress. The hotel is fairly worn, but has big rooms.  It doesn’t seem too busy, but there were a lot of rooms on floor 4 which were being used – I could tell by all of […]
