We also stopped in Samoa for a few hours en-route to USA to refuel, so that just about ticks another country visited box.
We arrived in Honolulu and went to several hotel booking information desks and 'shock , horror' when we discovered that it was ‘Presidents Day’ and Oahu really was fully booked
Arriving at the cheapest hostel in Hawaii in a 4 litre soft top Mustang certainly raised an eyebrow or two with our new dreadlocked druggy co-travellers. When the 18 year old receptionist asked us if we wanted to hire a push bike or moped that confused us to say the least.
After yet another cold shower we hit the sea front for a fat boy’s burger with sweet potato fries. Walking home we were somewhat surprised just how many homeless people there are in Waikiki. Dozens were strewn along the beach front, and on the walkway right in front of the shops, as hundreds of people dining and shopping were literally stepping over or around them. The heavy police presence seem to totally ignore them.
