Where I stayed

Flag of United States  , Hawaii
Sunday, June 8, 2003

It hadn't even been a full 2 weeks since I returned to the US from Tanzania before I left on my trip to Hawaii - To say the least, doing 12 time zones in that short amount of time was very difficult to do.  We left out of Newark International and had a layover in Houston.  Our flight out of Houston was delayed and therefore obviously got into Honolulu late as well, causing us to miss our flight over to the Big Island.

Fortunately, there was one last flight that we could get on which was leaving right away - we had time to make it - but our luggage did not.  Our dear luggage would not be able to join us till the following day.  When we arrived on the Big Island we grabbed our rental car and made our way to Walmart to stock up on groceries and pick up a few essentials to get us through till our luggage arrived.

We checked into our hotel - which was absolutely gorgeous and well decorated!  Our lanai overlooked the golf course and the Waikoloa Village.  The villa resort was still being built at this time, so we were able to score an incredible deal on this hotel and it also was not very crowded as they were not fully up and running, which I happen to enjoy!
