Hawaii Day 13 – Waikiki & Ala Moana

img_1444

It was our first proper day in Waikiki or Honolulu or Oahu since landing the night before. So we decided to just have a bit of an easy day of walking around and also satisfying our little American shopping hunger. After having breakfast, I came across a green tea shop that sold nothing but green […]

We woke up nice and early to travel down south to Port Allen. There we checked in with Holo Holo Charters where Paige and I plus 20 other people were jumping aboard a catamaran to sail up the Na Pali Coast. The weather was beautiful. It was the clearest sky we had seen all holiday, […]

Our resort is on the beach. We weren’t expecting that! So we started our day looking at the great view that we had access to. Surprisingly, the meals at Lava Lava Beach Club were some of the best we’ve had all trip so I was a happy camper. We then embarked on a bit of […]

Hawaii Day 8 – Lihue

We stayed at Jean’s place, an adorable Italian-American Buddhist grandmother from California. Her home was an old mid-manager 1917 plantation house. She showed me the front door which could be split into half so that the bottom half could stay closed and the top half could swing open so that managers can talk to their […]

It seems the Volcano area is constantly raining. Rain, rain, rain. So it made me wonder whether or not the constant chain smoking of the volcanoes cause an effect on the weather around the area. According to my nifty Google search, it changes the atmosphere and climate because all the ash that gets thrown up […]

I woke up nice and early to the sound of – yep, rain. This time it was knocking incessantly on the tin roof as if to tell me to hurry up and move on to the next town. I told the rain “Alright, alright – I’m outta here!” to which the wind howled in relief […]

Sorry guys, today is another visually unexciting blog post as I spent most of my time underwater. Paige and I had a very chill start to the day where we let our bodies sleep in, rest and relax. Once the early afternoon rolled in, it was time to get ready to go into Kona town. […]

Today is a pretty short blog of script and shots as I spent most of my time underwater. It’s been 5 years since I’ve even used my Open Water scuba diving license so in the morning I took on a Refresher Course with a dive shop. I managed to also convince Paige to have her […]

Hawaii Day 2 – Waipio, Waimea, Hawi & Mauna Kea

img_9194

I woke up nice and early at 5:30am because of jet lag but I was surrounded by views of lush jungle, sounds of tweeting birds and the slow onset of the Hawaiian sun. Once Paige woke up we got on our merry way to the end of the Hamakua coast at Waipio Valley. This was […]

I’m in Hawaii for the next 2 weeks with my good friend Paige. Hawaii has been a dream of mine since I was 6 years old, so I’m super excited to be able to finally set foot here and explore these islands. From Brisbane, we flew into Honolulu for a 9.5 hour flight then went […]
