OKC

It’s been awhile but I’m baaaaack 🙂 I’m here to post about my journey from Honolulu, Hawaii to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. With me is my ever supportive boyfriend Michael. I’ll answer whyyyy I’m here tomorrow but for now I’ll chat about howww we got here 😉

We missed our original flight to Las Vegas from Honolulu on Thursday but by the skin of our teeth made the 7am Friday morning flight (standby life- another story for another day). The timing would have been great but unfortunately our connecting flight was delayed and that extra hour or so really zapped the life out of us. We ate expensive airport food and stared at each other for three plus hours… From Vegas to OKC we had OPEN SEATING on Southwest. Honestly, who does open seating?! Well, since we bought the cheapest tickets we were nearly last to board and were nowhere near each other for the two hour flight. We had hoped to catch a movie together but the only open seats were the middle seats. Anyway we endured that and arrived in Oklahoma a little after 1am local time. Got our bags, scooped the very last Uber in the area, arrived at our apartment only for the keypad to not work. Since it was approximately 2am local time and we had been traveling for 16 hours (?) and had no way of contacting the property manager we were SOL. Buttt up comes Domino’s pizza delivery to suggest a not so gross hotel not so far away. Lucky for us Lyft was available and we slugged my three bags overs. Exhausted and beyond grumpy we MADE IT!

more shenanigans to come…

Day 16

Day 16- Incheon

Honestly I’m not super positive about the days anymore. Back to back flights with little naps in between while shuffling along with a suitcase you tend to lose track of time. Add in a time zone change and your body clock is majorly confused. I know it’s early morning and I know I’m in Korea.

The very unfortunate thing I’ve come to realize is that changing airlines from Asia Air to Hawaiian Airlines means that in order for you to pick up your bags and recheck them in, you must exit the terminal. The terminal has the shops, the food, the services, the everything.

We grabbed our bags and after a full day of traveling we’re in no mood or condition to leave the airport- even for a hotel. THANKFULLY, outside of the terminal area in the “basement” there is a spa. On Air Spa provides guests with a change of clothes, towels, a warm and cool pool, a wet and dry sauna, lockers, naps rooms, and a lounge for 15,000 won. I misheard the lady at the information desk at 50,000 and almost missed out on this gem.

I wish I could show you pictures and explain to you fully the amazingness of this spa but they had a very strict no photography policy. And I am one to bend the rules… but I would never risk being banned from this heaven on earth. There’s complimentary shower creams, hair products, face products, even cotton squares and q-tips!

The nap rooms and lounge has flat bean bag like things, mats, and block cushions for pillows. It was worth every single penny to wash up, rest up, and the noisiest thing there is suitcases rolling out as people leave. I would seriously consider bringing this kind of accommodation to Honolulu.

We killed a couple hours here and ate a good meal before we were able to check in to our flight. Almost there 👋🏻
