    Honolulu - Day 2

    April 10, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    We had big plans to wake up early (ie: 5am) and catch the bus (Dabus) up to Diamond Head crater to see the sunrise... plans changed when we were woken up at 8.30am by housekeeping. Lol! We must have needed the sleep 😴

    We ended up on the bus heading off to Diamond Head just after 10am. Around 25 minutes later we got off at the Diamond Head State Memorial & made the journey up the hill to the park entrance. Once we'd walked through the tunnel and to the park proper we paid our $1pp entry fee and started the trek to the top. Not for the faint hearted - it is quite steep in parts and there are a number of stairs. However, the view from the top is awesome and well worth the climb.

    The walk back down was a heck of a lot easier and we rewarded ourselves with a shave ice whilst resting in the shady park area that is essentially the middle of the crater. Once we had some more energy, we made our way out of the park & back to the bus stop where we caught the first bus that came along & ended up at Ala Moana Shopping Centre. After our big adventure we were not in the mood for shopping (will save that for another day as it looks like you'd need a day at least to navigate the monstrosity), instead we headed straight back to the hotel where we spent what was left of the afternoon lazing by the pool. Perfect!

    We opted for dinner at the Red Lobster & a cocktail to finish the night at The Study bar at our hotel!

    Condo view and Diamond Head Crater Hike

    January 21, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 21 °C

    Friday night we flew to Honolulu from Hilo and it was a bit of an adventure to find our air bnb condo. We eventually did and it was a nice spot on the 28th floor overlooking Waikiki (see pic). The next morning we got up early and headed to Diamond Head hoping to beat the crowds. Unfortunately, we didn't beat the rain and wind; or the crowds actually. I can't imagine how crowded that place must be on a nice day.Read more

    Diamond Head Crater Hike

    January 21, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 21 °C

    The hike up the crater was pretty steep at times, and the footing was terrible. We saw a lot of joggers running up and down which we thought was nuts given the poor footing and how narrow the pathway was at times. Anyway, the view of the Pacific and of Honolulu once we got to the top was spectacular as you can see.Read more
