    Tag 75 Ohau / Honululu

    June 24 in the United States

    Wie oft kann man sich verlieben? Denn schon wieder bin ich aufs Neue verliebt in einen Ort. Entweder liebe ich einfach alles oder das Leben liebt mich und zeigt mir die tollsten Orte der Welt. Wir sind nun in Oahu angekommen. Haben eine Wohnug im 25. Stock mit Blick auf den Waikiki Beach. Honolulu hat einfach alles zu bieten. Strand, surfen, tolle Restaurants und Bars und ein Shoppingparadies schlechthin. Für mich wird es wahrscheinlich ziemlich schwierig werden, all den Shops zu widerstehen. Da das Gepäck beim Flug nicht inbegriffen ist, zahlen wir pro Kg🙄.
    Nun geniessen wir einen fantastischen Abend mit meinem Onkel🍷🥂🍻

    Duke's

    September 21 in the United States

    Am Abend sind wir am Waikiki Strand spazieren gegangen bevor wir dann im berühmten Duke's zu Abend essen wollten. Das Restaurant ist am wohl bekanntesten Surfer der Welt Duke Kahanamoku gewidmet und bietet vorallem das an was aus dem Meer kommt. Das gute Essen muss man sich jedoch auch hier mit Sitzfleisch verdienen. Eine gute Stunde warteten wir in Eingangsbereich ausgestattet mit einem Pieper und leckeren Cocktails auf unseren Tisch. Gegessen haben wir dann beide Opah (Mondfisch - bitte googeln der Fisch sieht irre aus). Die Gerichte waren sehr gut jedoch nicht besonders üppig - dafür aber die Preise. Deswegen gab es dann lieber Nachtisch im Bett aus der Cheesecake factory 🤩Read more

    Diamond Head

    September 21 in the United States

    Das war eine nette kleine Wanderung die belohnt wurde mit einer Hammer Aussicht auf Honolulu. Auch die Geocaches konnten hier schnell abgehakt werden. Viel mehr muss hier nicht gesagt werden...
    Auf dem Rückweg sind wir in den Hawaii Hemden spezialisierten Laden "Bailey's Antiques and Aloha Shirts Inc" gegangen der mit über 15000 Hemden die gröste Auswahl auf der Welt hat. Anfangs war das klarkommen und verstehen des Ordnungsystems ziemlich verwirrend, sodass ich nur noch raus wollte, aber nach einer Weile war man im flow und wir konnten finden was wir wollten ☺ einfach super!Read more

    Waikīkī

    March 20, 2017 in the United States

    For our very late arrival we had a one-night reservation in a timeshare studio for an amazing $56 per night. This was just to fill in until we could check into our 1 bedroom condo at the Imperial Hawaii. In the morning we hauled our luggage down the street about 6 blocks to the Imperial. We're located in the centre of Waikiki just one block from the beach and are very pleased with our accommodation.

    Waikiki continues to attract Asian travellers and I'm estimating that they outnumber visitors from any other country, including mainland USA. Everything here is bilingual....English & Japanese. They obviously have money to spend because they are the only ones in the expensive designer shops, of which there are many. In contrast, I've been shopping at Ross Dress for Less where there is always a bargain!

    Day one we walked to the Ala Moana Centre, the world's largest open-air shopping centre with 340 stores and 80 restaurants. It was a pleasure to walk by all the luxury shops on our way to Walmart and Sam's Club to restock our food & wine supplies. The 5 km return trip was too much for John so we took a trolley home and he hasn't returned. He did enjoy going for lunch at the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. where he feasted on 20 shrimp prepared 4 different ways. I've been walking to the Centre daily, mainly for the exercise, and have learned that lugging a bag full of groceries plus 2 bottles of wine 2.5 km is just too much!

    Every Friday night the Hilton Hotel has a 5 minute fireworks display that can be seen from the beach.

    Waikīkī

    March 20, 2017 in the United States

    The beach is far more impressive than I remember from previous visits. The fine sand and turquoise water makes for a very enjoyable beach walk. The clear, warm water was refreshing although I heard on the news today that there was a box jellyfish warning. So maybe I won't be so quick to jump into the ocean this week! Oahu is John's least favourite island but on this trip he seems to be taking it in stride and is actually enjoying himself. Can you find him walking along the beach in the photo below? After a long afternoon walk I lingered on the beach to wait for the sunset. The beach was alive with people, music and an expressive hula dancer!Read more

    Prince Kuhio Day Parade

    March 25, 2017 in the United States

    John decided to sleep in today (suffering from vacation fatigue!) while I went to see the Prince Kuhio Day Parade. It was held one block away on Kalakaua Avenue and started at 10. Prince Kuhio Day celebrates the birth of the prince and is a state holiday. The parade was only one part of the long weekend festival of celebration. Schools and government offices are closed but it is business as usual in Waikiki. It was an excellent parade, complete with marching bands, horses (one of which came very close to where I was sitting on the curb!), hula dancers, and dignitaries. A great way to start my day.Read more
