Robin Roberts' travel plans aren't exactly going smoothly -  but it's not all bad. The TV star departed GMA in New York this week to head to New Zealand where she'll be reporting. 

However, she hasn't made it there yet as Robin's flight was rerouted leaving her and fiancee, Amber Laign, stuck in Hawaii. 

The pair appreciated their unexpected surroundings and Robin posted a photo on Instagram of them soaking up the sun beachside on Friday.

Earlier this week, she shared that she would be jetting across the world on assignment from GMA to report in New Zealand over the next week, with her trusty glam fam joining her.
