You know when they say it’s better to live with no regrets? I will never regret spending a week on Waikiki beach, even though I lost a day.
The infamous south shore beach on the Hawaiian island of O’ahu (which holds the capital, and is site of the international airport) Honolulu, was the scene of a spontaneous catch-up for my friend Kathy and I in 2008. We hadn't seen each other since we returned from teaching English in China two years previously; she lives in Canada, I live in England.
So how did Hawaii happen?
