We have returned from our honeymoon in Hawaii with full hearts and to be honest 5kilos heavier (thanks for that, damn tasty island food) i can’t even begin to tell you how amazing the experience was, it truly is more lush, vibrant, spiritual and awe inspiring than anything i have ever read or seen, honestly photos do not do Hawaii justice..you need to see it for yourself! We chose two islands to visit (Oahu and Maui) rather than trying to pack them all in and i think that was the best decision we could have made, we had plenty of time on our 13 day trip to see/do all that we wanted to.
I thought i would write up a little travel guide (based on our experience) as there were so many small gems and places we found ourselves in that i couldn’t wait to share with you all, if your heading to Oahu and Maui soon then get up, in and all around this post!
We arrived fresh off a 8 1/2 hour flight from Melbourne to a warm and golden Oahu, before we were able to check into our hotel we decided to check out Waikiki Beach in Honolulu and find coffee, the hilarious hour or so of attempting left hand drive and trying to find said coffee burned through some time before we rested our weary bodies on the grassy section of the beach and felt the buzz of excitement. Waikiki is great for tourists wanting to hire boards, drink Mai Tai’s on the sand, check out the pink hotel and just take in the awesomeness!
