Travel day

It has been a very long travel day.  We left our house at 8am CST and arrived in our hotel room at 7pm in the Hawaii-Aleutian Time Zone.  Adjusting that back to CST, it is midnight.   That is the thing about traveling, flying time was about 10 hours, but the elapsed time was 16 hours.  Lots of it is waiting around, for the flight, the layover, waiting to get off the plane, the rental car shuttle bus and the check in line at the hotel.

All in all, the flights were fine.  They both left and arrived on time; not too much turbulence,  we were seated in the back of both our flights, but such is life in the modern age.  We thought ahead and brought lunch and dinner with us so we weren’t stuck eating the airport or airline food, and also didn’t need to worry if we had time to eat in LA during our layover.  I binge watched Fauda from Netflix, a really good, but really disturbing Israeli show.

Steven us right, the flights were fine, but for some reason I just didn’t want to be on the plane. On the way to LA, I listened to a book, The Changling by Victor LaValle. I always listen at lest 1.4 speed for efficiency. It’s not what I was expecting, but so far, so good. On the way to Maui, I watched The Shape of  Water. I am late to the game on that one, but it was beautifully shot and very sweetly romantic. Next, I went for Phantom Thread. It,s hard to go wrong with Daniel Day Lewis and the clothes were fabulous, but there was no one to root for and the ending was creepy. In the end, I just wanted off the plane as quickly as possible. I might have been a little crabby. 

Off to bed early as we are tired and need to be up at 1:30 for our sunrise on Haleakala excursion.

more tomorrow.
