36 hours and 2 oceans later...

I've just arrived back from a very long trip. A trip to Hawaii to see my sister get married. It was a hell of a long trip and completely worth it. I'm still in the process of sorting through the insane amount of photos taken on my iPhone (my son broke the good camera months ago) and as soon as I've found some gems I'll be sharing them with you.

The trip was incredibly long but the cabin crew on Air France and American Airlines were great. I did have some complications while waiting for the LAX-HNL leg. American cancelled one of the earlier flights and there was a standby list of 15. Me and a couple from Australia were the last on the standby list (both of us traveling on staff concessions) and just as they were about to close the gate they let us on. And put us in First Class to boot.

The return flight was even longer due to the fact that Hawaii is 12 hours behind my homebase, and I had a 8 hour layover in LA. With such a large amount of free time on my hands I decided to take a trip to the beach.

(To be continued...)
