20 Hours in Honolulu

My journey begins after an eleven hour direct flight to Honolulu from JFK. I flew with Hawaiian Airlines and was so surprised by the comfortable, easy experience. And then I had 20 hours to spend in Hawaii.

First thing first, I checked into my hotel the Courtyard Waikiki Beach hotel. I booked through HotelTonight and the location was central and relatively inexpensive.

Courtyard Waikiki Beach

It was a short walk to Waikiki Beach and all the action. That day and evening there was a street party/festival full of live music, dancing, shopping, etc. My first meal in Hawaii was a kimchi rice and a passion fruit juice.

There were fantastic traditional hula dancers. And although, I tried to avoid buying anything I could not resist buying some cookies from the Honolulu Cookie Company, which I had tried on the flight over.

I ended the evening with a quick dip in the pool and hot tub and then went to bed. I was eager to wake up in the morning to get a quick swim in the ocean and breakfast (mocha pancakes) before heading off to the airport. Eleven more hours here I come.

Although, my time in Hawaii was brief I really loved Honolulu and I’m excited to get back and spend more time there one day.
