The first day on the trip was a leisure day, as most flights from the U.S. arrive at odd hours, and my fight from Houston was no exception. I arrived late in the evening around 9pm, and was met by a Globus representative after clearing customs and immigration. After waiting a couple of minutes for other participants of the tour, we finally arrived at our hotel, the San Jose Wyndham Herradura, shortly before midnight. We met our Travel Director Jorge for a brief explanation of the following day’s activities.
When it came time to pick a trip, I chose the 10 Day Best of Hawaii from Trafalgar, because it had always been my mom’s dream to go there. We were both full of expectations and ready for exciting adventures as we landed in Honolulu on Oahu Island, after an 8 hour nonstop flight from Houston. A smiling Trafalgar agent greeted us at the airport Hawaiian style, with flower Leis, and guided us to the baggage claim area where porters were waiting. Next, a shuttle drove us through the streets of Honolulu and along the infamous shores of Waikiki beach to the Marriott Waikiki Beach Hotel, where we would stay for 4 nights. After checking in and taking in the breathtaking view, we joined the group for a welcome reception where we met our fellow travelers.
