Travelling to Kauai

So this week, my blog entries will also be a diary of my holiday in Kauai, and a photo or two, although most of the photos will probably be on my Flickr page.

We left home yesterday early from San Jose airport, which was not a pleasant experience- one word sums it up- queues! We only just made the plane and arrived at the airport over an hour and a half before the flight. The flight was on Hawaiian Air, and they too, are squeezing every penny they can, from having to pay to check any bags, to renting headsets and movie players on board. The flight was a long one; extra time for strong headwinds meant a 6 hour flight just to Honolulu. We did make the connection in time and the 30 minute flight to Kauai was so short it was laughable.

It was also really windy in Kauai but it was warm and slightly humid with partly cloudy skies. Perfect.

We arrived at the rental home a few hours before Joel and Stevie and found out very quickly why they love it so much here:



and the view from the house was worth the flight...



We spent the rest of the afternoon eating, drinking and wandering around Kapa'a first on our own and later with Joel and Stevie- a great relaxing start.

I have seen pictures of this house before and can't remember its name. Could you please send me let me know the name of this house? Thanks

I'll find out for you. I don't have the details as our friends booked it but I'll post it here when I do.

Thanks for the info. I know I have seen it before too. I just love the view from the lanai.
