On the lighter side-Travel-Oahu, Hawaii-3
But the flight was smooth and the attendants did their best to accommodate their guests. When we landed safely, the baggage was on the other side of a building so we had to drag ourselves there to get it. The weather was picture perfect and we were so excited to reach our dream destination. After getting our luggage, we had to board a bus to take us to the car rental agency Budget ®. Unlike some other car rental companies, they were located not on the airport but a short distance from it. After going through all the formalities of registering our car, we got a mid size Nissan® Sentra ®. Since the food situation on the flight was not to our liking and it was in the afternoon we decided to take our lunch right beside the car rental parking lot. As usual McDonalds ® came to our rescue and after eating it, it was time to go to our resort. Our GPS®, which we have taken to guide us to various destinations around Aloha, refused to recognize the address we put in, as if it did not recognize Hawaii. After working on it for a little while, my wife and I gave up on it and used the map given to us by the Car rental company to guide us to the resort. It was actually one and half hour drive from the airport and as we realized, Hawaii is no different when you are travelling through the city streets and highways. We had hit the roads right at the rush hour and it was packed by luckily we drove through it since we were so mesmerized by the whole Hawaiian experience, the weather and the mountains and the scenery all around.
