Honolulu International Airport, 13:03
Signage does not seem a strong point in Hawaii; something we noticed driving round the island. Finding out how to check in at the airport takes the form of an interesting puzzle.
Arriving in the departure area offers a second level of the same game.
To progress we have to discover that the airport contains different areas and that we need to walk out of this departure area, into the bright sunshine and along several walkways, before we find ourselves in the mainland departure area.
I catch a first glimpse of our plane as we walk along in the bright heat towards our destination.
