WOW AND NOT SO WOW
I've lost an appendage. If you find it, can you reattach it please? I'm rattling around Kauai without my husband. He was only allowed three days vacation because of the new software implementation (which by the way got POSTPONED on Monday so he could have been here. Sigh) Traveling without him is like trying to walk with my foot in a cast. I'm severely hampered. I have to haul my own luggage, find my terminal by myself, locate Starbucks without his eagle eyes pointing it out. I have to DRIVE which is a bummer when I'm used to him knowing exactly where to go. And I just plain miss him! So this is the not so wow part of my trip.
But I've had some Wow moments too. We like to fly Hawaiian Airlines out here. Now THAT is an airline! If you ever travel to Hawaii, it is the only airline to take. We like it so well we fly to Phoenix and travel from there on Hawaiian. They are the only airline that gives you a truly Hawaiian experience on the way. The stewardesses wear flowers in their hair, there is Hawaiian music playing when you get onboard, the screen shows hula dancing and other great Hawaiian cultural things. I love it! This year I ordered in copies of Distant Echoes and gave them to the stewardesses. The next thing I knew they'd brought me a little DVD player which usually costs $15 and two extra headsets for anyone in my party to enjoy. VERY SWEET of them!
Then when we got to our house we were blown away! It's up in Omao and absolutely gorgeous! My bedroom is the master and it has an island bed with mosquito netting draping it for ambience. The grounds are fabulous with flowers everywhere which the caretaker said we could pick for the wedding reception. I'll definitely be back.
So that's the WOW part and I'm emjoying it as I thump without my missing appendage. Keep a lookout for that appendage though, would you? I sure miss him!
