As of early this morning (and I do mean early, 4am to be exact) we were off on yet another adventure, only this time we weren’t on our own. With the Hawaiian Islands as our destination, and our family as our traveling companions we packed up the limo and headed to O’Hare.
It was about a 30 minute drive from the airport to our hotel, the Moana Surfrider on Waikiki Beach. The Surfrider is the oldest hotel on the island, celebrating over 100 years. They also boast the oldest Banyan tree on the island.
Our rooms are at the top floor giving us a great view, not only of the beach, but also of downtown Honolulu. As if the view wasn’t enticing enough to spend all of our time on the balcony, we set up our hammock we brought with us and immediately took to lounging around like a couple of beach bums.
It’s just pushing 8:30pm here, but because our bodies are still on Chicago time (1:30am) it’s becoming more and more difficult to keep our eyes open. We’re eager to explore more tomorrow, but for now we just need some sleep!
