    Koko Crater aka Mount Doom

    October 2, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Why do I keep doing this? 'Oh that hike looks great, what a fun thing to add to our holiday', gahhhhhh!
    First stop, Koko crater aka Mount Doom. The Koko Head trail is an old railway with 1048 stairs, what a great way to start the day, said no one ever. Driving into the carpark and you could see a clear path up the giant mountain next to us. It was bloody beautiful, don't get me wrong, but we (mostly me) had to stop so many damn times on the way up to not die. There were a few military people who do it 5 times a day then go home. FIVE TIMES! One lady was on her phone just having a chat with a friend on the way up, while I'm struggling to breathe let alone talk. It was tough, but the view was unreal! Took us just over an hour to get to the top and about 45 minutes to get down. Going up was obviously more strenuous, but going down was really tricky, a lot of the steps you have to literally climb up, some were up to my hip because sleepers in between had fallen away or eroded, or some were a weird size anyway. There was also a section where there was no ground underneath at all, it just dropped off. There were some dogs doing it with their owners (the crazy runners) and on our way back down there was a girl heading up with her family and she said that if a dog could do it, she could. We had a laugh but refrained from telling her that it's a trap. Finally got to the bottom, absolutely dead, like.. ready to vomit dead, so that was an unpleasant half an hour while my tummy settled. Ben ran in to some shops nearby and got some water, coke and Gatorade so we could switch between the drinks to hydrate and get some sugar back into us. I'm glad we did it, but yeah.. once is enough.
    Oh! Nearly forgot, guess who did the whole thing in pluggers?! Quite a few people mentioned it to him and were dumbfounded haha, Ben's usual response was 'I'm an Aussie, mate'. Hahaha, typical 😅😅

    Koko Head.!!

    June 13, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Der heutige Tag fing mit einem kurzen aber intensiven Hike an. Um 8:00 kamen wir am Koko Head an und uns erwarteten ❗️1048 Stufen❗️ bis zum Top. Wenn die Stufen “normal” gewesen wären, dann wäre er, denke ich, halb so streng gewesen. Aber es ging manchmal sehr steil hoch und es waren nicht mal normale Stufen, sondern eine alte Eisenbahnschiene. Ich schwitzte mir des Todes einen ab🥵. Nach knappen 45 Minuten war ich endlich oben angekommen. Wir genossen da noch die Aussicht und stiegen da wieder hinab. An gewissen Stellen war es so rutschig, dass man eher runter gerutscht ist, als runter gelaufen. Wir fuhren danach zu einem Strand um uns zu entspannen. Patrik und Martin gingen schnorcheln und sie sahen Seelöwen!!. Zwei davon sind sogar an den Strand gekommen und haben die Sonne genossen. Ich wurde von einem Marder/Eichhörnchen-Gemisch Tier besucht. Die gibt es hier überall.!! Zur Stärkung fuhren wir danach in einen MC Donalds und ich kochte mir am Abend noch Kartoffeln. Ich liiiiebe sie einfach🙆🏼‍♀️😍.Read more

    Koko Head

    January 13, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    You need exactly 1048 steps to reach the summit of this old volcano. Get up and down is kinda challenging because the „stairs“ ar sometimes broken or just weird.

    But on top we had just an amazing view over the Hanauma Bay and of cours the rest around😅

    Luckily we got up there early because it gets veery hot!🥵Read more

    heute haben wir vom Hostel aus den Koko Head Railwaytrail gemacht#es war ein harter Aufstieg welcher nur aus Treppen bestand#diese waren mal höher, mal weniger und teilweise haben sie gefehlt#oben angekommen konnten wir eine schöne Aussicht geniessen#nach dem Abstieg gingen wir anschliessend an einen kleinen Beach namens Cockroach Cove#die Anfahrt zum Trail und Beach war für Angi, Julia und mich individuell, da wir keinen Platz mehr im Auto vom Hostel hatten, so konnten wir noch etwas länger am Strand bleiben, wobei die anderen wieder zurück mussten#haben dann Nachmittags unser Zmorgen/Zmittag bei einem Foodtruck in der Nähe des Beaches zu uns genommen und sind mit dem Bus zurück nach Waikiki gefahren#Read more
