    Pineapples everywhere!

    October 3, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    We wandered back and headed for the Dole pineapple plantation for some dole whip. A lot of the reviews we've seen said it's a tourist trap, but really lovely if you've got kids, there's a train and the world's (i think it was) biggest maze and stuff like that. We went anyway but didn't do the tour or any of the activities like that, but there was still a heap to look at, the shops inside were huge and you could watch a pineapple demonstration, the time wasn't right for us to watch that, but we were intrigued haha. Here's a pineapple, the end. Got our dole whip, it's pineapple ice cream and it was so good but also very sweet. There were also some rainbow trees where we were sitting, don't know what they were exactly, but they looked nice.Read more

    Alles für die Ananas

    October 31, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Spontan entschieden wir uns nochmal wieder weiter nach Norden zu fahren. Schon auf dem Rückweg von der Nordküste hatten wir die Dole Plantation in Zentral Oahu gesehen. Nach dem World War II Memorial ist die Plantation die zweitbekannteste Attraktion Hawaiis. Und im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes dreht sich hier alles um die Ananas. Vor allem für Familien und Kinder bietet die Anlage alles was das Herz begehrt, vom Pineapple Express über ein Ananas Labyrinth bis hin zu einem Restaurant, das die Ananas in jeglicher Form und Farbe essbar macht.Read more

    Day 22- Honolulu

    March 17 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 70 °F

    It's a rainy day, that is how everything is so green and beautiful. But it's not what I think of when I think of Honolulu. Today was also our first Corona virus cancellation . Hawaii has seemed pretty chill since we have been here, hearing about all the closings but not seeing it so much here. Until today. We had tickets for The Polynesian Cultural Center and luau, but checked their website and found they had closed until the end of the month. Later this week we were going to do Pearl Harbor, and found that it also is now closed for tours. We were going to go to see the movie "I Am Patrick" tomorrow night, but theaters have closed. Many restaurants are also closing. We are in a condo with a kitchen, so we can cook here. So we checked on another place that we had planned for tomorrow and found that the Dole Pineapple Plantation tour was still open, so we jumped in the car and took off before they changed their minds! There was a huge gift shop with pineapple everything, including a demonstration on how to cut a pineapple. Then we got on the pineapple express train to ride around the Plantation and see the fruit growing, it takes 2 years for pineapples to grow. Still a light rain, so we went for lunch at Maui Mike's, a local place that served a family meal of a whole chicken and several sides, it was so good. Then we walked in a nearby botanical garden rain forest--in light rain-so it felt very authentic. It was beautiful and we enjoyed all the plants and flowers. We weren't far from Dole so we went back for a treat of pineapple whip ice cream. We headed further north for 15 min or so and were near the north end of the island, it is much smaller the the Big Island. We stopped to see a couple of beaches, finally big sandy beaches, one was a surfers beach. Then we continued our drive around the island along a scenic Coastal road. It took about an hour to get back to Waikiki. We walked around a little as there are lots of nice shops sound the resort, and noticed a quilt shop across the street, filled with Hawaiian style quilts. We also took a quick peek at the beach but it was getting dark so we headed back to the condo to eat some leftovers for dinner, and then watched a Redbox movie, Knives Out-very cute mystery!Read more

    Erster Stopp am Freitag war die Dole Plantation. Diese wurde 1903 von James Dole gegründet und war zeitweise die größte Konservenfabrik der Welt. Heute ist hier eine Ananasplantage und Shop vorzufinden, indem sich alles um die Ananas dreht - von T-shirt’s, über Ketten bis hin zu Plüschtieren. Im Garten neben den Hauptbaus kann man verschiedene Ananassorten aus aller Welt sehen. Außerdem findet man riesige Ananasfelder.Read more
