Arrived in Hilo

I arrived into Kona yesterday slightly ahead of schedule, picked up my rental car, and drove to Hilo. This pretty much killed me...

I'd managed to pick up a business class upgrade on the Osaka to Vancouver leg, which was pretty good since that's a nine and a half hour flight. But I paid for it flying from SFO to Kona. I ended up in the back of an ageing 757 stuck beside some people that were too big for their seats, not that this was saying much. I was pretty much too big for the seat, which considering I'm not a big guy, that's saying a lot. I had one of the most uncomfortable flights I'd had in a long time, and when I finally got into Hilo I went to bed and slept for twenty hours straight.

Did I ever mention I don't really like all the travelling I do?
