    Abseits von Waikiki

    February 10 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Auch wenn Christoph Geburtstag hat, blieb ihm leider der Wunsch unerfüllt, mal im richtigen „Armistyle“ die Insel zu erkunden. 🇺🇸😯
    Ein Subaru war der Trostpreis. 🚙😉

    Der Aufstieg zum „Diamond Head“, ein erloschener Vulkankrater mit Schutz- und Aussichtsbunker erwies sich als eine große Völkerwanderung.
    Ein Regenschauer erwischte uns kurz vor dem letzten Abschnitt, doch wir erreichten rechtzeitig den Tunnel und als wir durch waren, lachte uns die Sonne mitten ins Gesicht und wir spürten die neidischen Blicke der durchnässten Menschen. 💦😬
    Das Wetter verzog sich immer wiedermal und verwehrte uns leider einen Badenachmittag an einem der schönsten Strände der USA. 🌈
    Aber wir sehen das sehr gelassen, denn die Natur
    war trotzdem beeindruckend. Auch die aus Jurassic Park bekannten Berge wurden durch das Wetter noch mystischer! 🦖🦕🦖

    Am Abend gönnten wir uns zur Feier des Tages noch ein gemütliches Abendessen in der Cheesecake Factory und lernten sehr nette pensionierte Amerikaner kennen die immer wieder Hundesitter in deren Haus am Strand brauchen. Wer weiß ... 😉🤗

    Diamond Head

    September 5, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    🇺🇸🌺
    Today we had an absolutely amazing view of Waikiki and Honululu. Therefor we climed up Diamond Head - a must do when visiting O’ahu. The view was absolutely worth all the exhaustion in the hot sun, we als had some Shave Ice afterwards to refill our energy. (Unfortunately the ice wasn’t as tasty as expected, but at least our tongues looked cool 🤪).

    🇩🇪🌺
    Heute harten wir eine unglaubliche Aussicht auf Waikiki und Honululu. Wir sind nämlich auf den Diamond Head gestiegen - ein absolutes Muss in O‘ahu. Die Aussicht war die Anstrengung in der vollen Sonne nach oben absolut wert und als Belohnung gab es das lang ersehnte Shave Ice. (Leider war es nicht so lecker wie erhofft, aber die zu he sah cool aus 🤪).

    Hawaii - Honolulu

    November 28, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Nach 10 Stunden Flug und 21h Zeitverschiebung landeten wir am 27. in Hawaii-Honolulu. 🌺
    An diesem Tag machten wir nichts weiter außer am Strand zu liegen und gegen den Jetlag anzukämpfen.🌴🏖 Am Tag darauf beschlossen wir aber eine Wanderung auf den Diamond Head zu machen, die laut Google Maps nur 2 h gehen sollte. Letztendlich kamen wir 8h später völlig fertig in unserem Apartment an und wollten uns mit LocoMoco, einer Hawaiianischen Spezialität belohnen, die leider genauso schmeckte wie sie aussieht. 😅🌋🏃🏽‍♀️🍛Read more

    Diamond Head

    November 11, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Heute besichtigten wie den Diamond Head. Der Diamond Head ist eine 232 m hohe Steinformation und ein Wahrzeichen von Honolulu und Oahu. Der ca
    1,5 Quadratkilometer große Krater soll vor rund 300 000 Jahren nach einer Eruption entstanden sein. 1904 wurde er von der Regierung gekauft und diente seit dem für militärische Zwecke.

    Heute ist der Diamond Head eine Touristenattraktionen. Nach einem kurzen aber sehr anstrengenden Aufstieg wird man schließlich mit einem wunderschönen Blick auf Waikiki und das Meer belohnt.

    Diamond Head (Mountain)

    April 17, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Although there was pathway and stairs the whole way up, it was still a good piece of exercise to get to the top of Diamond Head. The day started off with clouds and rain, which gave way to sunshine by 9am. The view (and breeze) at the top were amazing)Read more

    Diamond Head Lookout

    June 20, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Another early start to try and make it up to the diamond Head Lookout before the heat of the day kicked in.
    It was an easy walk for me but slightly frustrating as i got stuck behind people who wanted to video selfie their whole journey. Grrr. Anyway, this girl powered on and the views were amazing. I was well rewarded.Read more

    Diamond Head Hike

    February 13 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Dropped our bags at the hotel and headed off to Diamond Head to walk the trail to the summit. Instead of getting a taxi we decided take in the area and walk to the trail head. Approx 8km return and just 1.3km to climb the 171m from the crater floor. The path is uneven and steep, and on passing through a tunnel you have choice of going right for breath taking steps (99 of them to be exact ) or left for breathtaking views. Actually both paths lead to the top and we chose to go right and return via the switchbacks.

    If we had a choice we definitely would have done the hike early in the morning when hopefully it would have been a little less busy and a lot cooler, but that wasn’t an option and we shared the fantastic views at the top with just a few other people 😜

    Diamond Head

    January 7, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Toady we walked up the Diamond Head, an old volcano🌋

    Soo you park (hopefully you find a space for your car, it’s very crowded!!) in the volcano where once the magma came out and you walk up to the top.
    It was again sooooo hot and the path doesn’t have any shadow.🥵

    On top we had a stunning view over Honolulu and the ocean, just breathtaking!

    Back in the volcano we rewarded us with a pineapple and a coconut, just yummy🍍🥥

    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!
