The 10 hour flight from New York to Honolulu didn't feel as long as it was, from what I remember of it anyway! I think it was the biggest plane I have ever been on, but it was quite empty so we got to sit where we wanted and move around, which was a bonus for such a long flight! Also what I think is absolutely amazing about United Airlines is that you get free juice!!!! Robert and I drink loads of juice and water when on planes, so all through our trip this was free and was great!
When we eventually landed in Honolulu, we were soo excited!!! I didn't know anybody who had been to Hawaii before me, so I really didn't know what to expect except from what I have read! Now what I did know about Hawaii was the very relaxed atmospere, which is definitely not what its like in Glasgow! So when we went to collect our suitcases, we were standing around waiting by the carousel. When luggage started coming onto the carousel it kept stopping and restarting, now at that point we were the only flight in as it was so late at night. It took about an hour for the people who worked at the airport to realise that it was broken. It was quiet funny really and they were climbong up and down the carousel ramp trying to work out what had happened. I just kept thinking that if this was Glasgow, people would be going absolutely crazy!! They ended up switching all the bags not to the ramp next to us but to the absolute furthest away carousel, which also had another two flights suitcases on it too!!! This meant that we could hardly even get to the carousell to pull our cases off it!! It was madness!! Haha but funny all the same, although we were soo tired and just wanted our beds!
We had a good lie in and got up to explore Waikiki, which was the area we were staying in. Now the first thing I noticed when we were walking up the main street, called Kalakaua Avenue, is the shops!!! Now, this is what I notice in most places I go, but this was very different from anywhere else! One was that it was absolutely beautiful! The place was so clean and just so luxurious and pretty! Secondly was the shops themselves, every one of them was a top high end designer! I was in absolute awe!! Every one you could think of was on that one street, Chanel, Cartier, Gucci, Dior just to name a few! This was just so exciting, but I was way too scared to venture into these places as everything in them are sooo expensive!!!
We then went down onto Waikiki Beach, which I believe is one of the most famous beaches in the world? Well it should be if it isn't, beacuse it is so picturesque! Honestly, if you ever get the chance to go to Hawaii, you have to go because it is the most gorgeous place I have ever been and I have been to lots!! Hehe, even the buildings are all so pretty and the shuttle buses are so cute!

They are so scrummy!! Haha
