Good morning from Oahu

There is a two hour time difference from Alaska to Hawai'i (at this time of year). I woke up at 0500 HST, and I am out on our porch watching east coast tourists, asian tourists, and flamingos flock among the manicured grounds at Hilton Hawaiian Village (yay, flamingos :)).

In a day of upgrades, I flew first class from Anchorage to Hawai'i and then got upgraded to the exclusive Ali'i tower here. We have our own gym, for free, a private deck for sunbathing, and lots of amenities, including a robe so cute it might have to go home with me...

But above all, being greeted by Brad at the airport was heaven. He bought me a lei, and it now makes our room smell ever so tropical.

Off to coax my freckles out of winter hiding...aloha.

That sounds absolutely heavenly! I'm so glad you got two upgrades and that you get to stay at the must be gorgeous there right now! Have a blast and bring home lots of photos!
