When he arrived at the airport, he immediately checked-in and boarded the plane.
Where did Joe check-in to board the plane? He checked-in at the airport. He went to the airport and checked-in so that he could board the plane to Hawaii.

And he was sleeping still, when the plane landed in Hawaii.
Where did the plane land? The plane landed in Hawaii. That is where Joe was supposed to get off and enjoy his vacation. Once the plane landed, all he had to do was get off the plane and go to the beach.
But Joe was so tired that he didn’t wake up even when the other passengers were laughing and talking all around him.
Did Joe wake up and get off the plane? Nope. He did not. He didn’t wake up at all. He didn’t even hear the other passengers getting off the plane.
He was dreaming of his vacation in Hawaii.

After a couple of hours, the plane took off again and continued on its journey.

When Joe woke up, the plane was landing in China.
Will Joe enjoy his vacation in Hawaii? I don’t know. Probably not. He may enjoy his vacation in China. But I don’t think he will enjoy it in Hawaii, because Joe slept too much. Now his plane is landing in China.
But poor Joe thought he was arriving in Hawaii.
Why did he think he was arriving in Hawaii? Well, because that is where he was headed. And since he didn’t wake up in Hawaii or realize the plane took off again…he thought it was landing in Hawaii. He didn’t realize that it had already stopped in Hawaii.
Imagine his surprise when he got off the plane and realized the people weren’t speaking English.
Was Joe surprised when he got off the plane? Yes! He was definitely surprised. He was very surprised. In fact he was probably shocked. He didn’t hear anyone speaking English. All he heard was Chinese. Imagine how surprised you would be if you woke up in China.
