This week, I am going to be sharing my experiences in Hawaii. I hope you enjoy
Because Hawaii is 21 hours behind Melbourne, we left at 5pm on the 15th of January and landed in Honolulu at 6am on the same day. Obviously we were all pretty tired as we had no sleep on the plane but we still got to see an amazing sunrise 🌅 whilst leaving the airport.
The first day went by pretty fast. We stopped at a restaurant for breakfast and ate the fluffiest pancakes I’ve ever eaten.
After breakfast, we went down the main road and did some sight seeing and also went down to the beach for a bit. We were all still pretty tired and the rest of the day was very uneventful.
On the second day we went to Ala Moana shopping centre and did some shopping. If you would like to know what I got, check out my Hawaii Haul.
This day was a relaxing day. We went down to a the beach for a while, which was absolutely gorgeous.
In the evening we embraced the Hawaiian culture and saw a Hula show on a the beach and another sunset.
Today we went for a hike at Manoa Falls. It was pretty scenic and got very rocky at the top, but the view was totally worth it. I heard later on that Jurassic Park was filmed there.
It was harder on the way down because it had started raining and the path was very slippery.
I also tried shave ice today, and I’m so glad I did because it’s so good. I have a pic of what mine looked like before I tipped it over.
In the afternoon, I went down the mainstreet with my mum and sister and did a bit of shopping and browsing.
Today was another beach morning. We went down the pier, this time and could see the beautiful, clean water and a bunch of people surfing.
I got another shave ice because I really like them. In the evening we went back to the beach for the sunset and it was really nice
On Friday, we hired a car so we could go to the North Shore. We made quite a few stops at different locations. The first one was at Turtle Bay but there weren’t any turtles.
Next we went to the roughest surf beach I’d ever seen. Only professional surfers were allowed in the water.
After that we went to Waimea falls, another waterfall. This time we were allowed to swim in it. Since it was about 10m deep in some areas, we had to wear life jackets but it was totally worth it.
There were also many movies filmed there including: Journey 2 the Mysterious Island, Catching Fire and Chipwrecked.
Our last stop was on the way back to Honolulu, which was at Aloha Wow Wow Lemonade. I’d seen YouTubers go to this place and was really excited to go. I got a Strawberry Limeade and it was amazing.
There are also fireworks every Friday night at the Hilton, but we watched from Waikiki beach. This day was probably my favourite out of all of them.
The weather was extremely windy today, so it was a bit harder to go sight seeing. One of the locations we went to were these blowholes, which were pretty cool.
We didn’t do much in the afternoon, because the weather was awful, but in the evening we watched Moana.
Our second last day in Hawaii. Today we went back to Ala Moana to do some more shopping and to have another look at American stores.
We spent the morning of our final day at the beach. I tried to tan, but my pale skin just doesn’t tan at all. 😂 In the afternoon, we went for another walk down the main road and looked at a few shops before we had dinner.
Once we got back to the hotel, we had to fully pack because our flight was at 8am so we had to get up at 4am.
That was pretty much my holiday in Hawaii. I’m super grateful for the experience and I definitely miss it right now. If you enjoyed, leave a comment below, because Iove to chat. I hope everyone’s having a great day or night. Bye guys.
