Day 1: Arriving in Honolulu

Band member and Staff Writer Daelin Brown takes you on her 7 day journey over 4,000 miles away

Sitting on busses at 2 a.m., everyone discussed whether they decided to sleep the night before departure. Some, including myself, had a power outage that night approximately from 6:30-9:30 p.m. After napping through the power outage, I was up until 1:00am which was when I needed to start getting ready.

After a 2 hour bus ride to Newark Airport filled with sleepy students, we engulfed the chaos at the airport. People left personal items unattended because they had to deal with the issue of large instruments. Once all of the bags were checked, all we had to do was get through security.

Waiting in long lines was finally over, and we were free to find our gate. Since I was on flight 2, we had about an hour until we started boarding, and we got to walk around the airport.

After a 6 hour plane ride, everyone who was on flight two had about a 2 hour layover in L.A. As I looked out the window, I noticed the palm trees and landscape of L.A. was very pretty (even though it was raining.) It was nice to get off the plane and stretch our legs because we had another 5.5 hours left to get to Honolulu.

We entered the airport at Honolulu and were greeted by people giving us leis. It was a 15 minute bus ride to our hotel, so we got to see some of the more urban parts of the island. When we got to the hotel we had a brief meeting about tomorrow’s performance at Pearl Harbor. We were given a 9:00 p.m. bedtime because we have to be up at 4:30 a.m. tomorrow. After getting lost around this large resort to find a restaurant, we went into the room for bed.
