Quick post: we safely returned from Kauai last night, although it was seven hours later than we expected due to a delay in the second leg of our trip.
We unexpectedly spent the day in the Delta lounge at LAX, where I felt extremely gross after flying a red-eye from Kauai to Los Angeles that morning. What we thought was a two hour layover turned into most of the day, but we made it back to darkness, snow and single digit temps. On the plus side: Delta sent me a message saying they were going to give me 17,500 bonus miles for the inconvenience.
Given my current unemployment, my schedule today is pretty open so in the end, I was ok with it all. But today I’m tired.
Back to the trip: it was fantastic! I will post many reports about our adventures, but in summary, it was one of the best trips I’ve ever taken. Spouse agreed.
As promised, I also drank champagne:
This was a guava and champagne mimosa that I had for breakfast on our first morning. Yum.
One more teaser pic before I get some of the trip report ready:
More forthcoming. Soon.
