    Goodbye Waikiki (for now)

    May 16, 2017 in the United States

    Waikiki isn't my kind of place - I don't need high-end shops - but I've found plenty to do and getting around has been easy on TheBus. I still haven't got a handle on being on the right side of the road (literally) for bus stops. Every journey is $2.50, no change given, unless ... well I don't know why, but once I was let off 50c because I only had $2 or a $5 note. Then once I was charged just $1, no idea why!

    So farewell Waikiki, roll on Big Island, Airbnb stays and car hire 😎

    January 28 in the United States

    What a lovely day we have had today! We started the day off with a ripper of a breakfast at our hotel it was so yummy, at this rate I think I will be the size of a house by the time I get back. We had a walk around the streets and then straight to the beach for a swim, we grabbed a salad for lunch to try and even it all out because we are going to the Cheesecake Factory again for dinner! They have the best food and cheesecake that does not disappoint ❤️
    We rode the trolley cart around some of the island and seen some beautiful beaches. We then got dropped off to a shopping centre for some light browsing 😂 we then got picked up by the trolley and taken back to our hotel, we are currently making our selves beautiful ready for dinner

    January 29 in the United States

    What a day! Starting of with an early morning walk to diamond head, which is an extinct volcano just 10 mins away from where we are staying. The views were amazing with the sun over the crystal blue waters, just beautiful. We headed back down the hike and caught the trolley cart back to where we were staying we went for massages and coffee and cake to top the morning off ( I had cake Toby ordered actual food hahah). We went down to the beach around lunch time and hired a stand up paddle board, what we didn't remember was that we were at a beach with actual waves so that was a pretty funny event 😂
    After our hopeless attempt at paddle boarding we headed to our rooms to get dolled up ready for the luau! It was such a cool event to go to, when we go there they gave us flower neck lays and drinks. We walked on through and we got to do hula lessons, watch how they climb a palm tree, how they use fishing nets and lastly how they cooked our dinner in a hungi style set up. As well Toby got picked to wear a grass skirt and do some dancing out the front of everyone it was hilarious! The food was amazing and the experience and show was good fun.

    February 1 in the United States

    Well what a shocker of a morning! We went out snorkelling and it was pretty choppy, Toby had a ball while I was spewing of the deck with bloody sea sickness!! It was terrible, I couldn't have felt worse. Toby had a great time snorkelling and on the cruise. I went into the water thinking I would feel better but I couldn't have been more wrong, as soon as I got back on the boat that's when things went down hill, but hey I got to see a sea turtle in my short time in the water. It was such a relief to get back to shore I can tell you that now! 😂
    After our shocker of an adventure Toby took me to maccas and peped me up which made me feel better! We went for a swim, I didn't let the waves get me moving too much 😂 and I had a dip in the jacuzzi! I'm loving the jacuzzi. After we went for a oook around he streets and back to the room after ready for dinner. It was an eventful day but hey toballs the little shit enjoyed it 👍🏼
    Outlets here we come tomorrow!
    P.s we are definitely gunna need another suitcase
    P.ss we have more photos on a USB of our day before it took a turn for the worst! All smiles blue skies and we seen HUMPBACK WHALES 🐳

    January 31 in the United States

    We had an awesome day today exploring a place called Kualoa ranch where they filmed a lot of movies including Jurassic park! We got there nice and early and we were out in a group to ride quads on the movie sets with a WHOLE group of Asians! Now I am not being racist but I just had this feeling that the quad experience was going to be hilarious. We were the only two that got a safety talk in English!!! And the rest were all in different languages, now with in the first 5 minutes of doing the practice lap to make sure every one was okay one of the dim sims crashed of a small drop and sat there trying to get out of the hole the wheels spinning like crazy!! Toby and I turned to each other and Toby's words to me went a little like this, " well this is going to be fucking eventful" 😂
    The ride was nice and slow with one of the dim sims being close to the age of 60+ he had to be!! It was definitely a very funny experience. After our quad tour we went on a jungle tour to see Hawaiian temples, traditional stone packed fences, along with how they fished and come to use the land.
    We headed to lunch after this tour where we filed up on once again mostly Asian foods lots of rice 😂 and headed on to our last adventure on the ranch which was the tour of all the movie sets and sites that were filmed there. We seen where movies like 51st dates was filmed, soul surfer, Jurassic park, King Kong, the movie pearl harbour and Hawaii 5-0 which was being filmed for season 8 while we were there!! We didn't see any of the actors but it was exciting seeing them set up.
    After all of our tours we headed back to our hotel had a little kip then went down to the jacuzzi for a dip before dinner! It was a pretty miserable day, raining on and off so the jacuzzi was a good idea! Not to mention it was full of multicultural people having loads of debate and one Aussie being a wanker!! We had a pretty cool day 🌸

    Bye bye Big Island, hello Honolulu!

    September 16, 2016 in the United States

    Flew back from Hilo to Honolulu yesterday. The flight took one hour. Then I waited three hours at the airport for the Speedy Shuttle! {sigh!!} ☹️
    I got here eventually though, in time to walk on the beach and enjoy the sunset, followed by a margarita 😎

    Saturday at the Surfrider

    September 17, 2016 in the United States

    Spent a lazy day exploring the historic Moana Surfrider at Waikiki, constructed in 1916. It was the first resort to be built in Waikiki, and a preferred destination for Hawaiian royalty. The resort retains its olde worlde charm, including excellent table service of high teas and elegant dining.
    The second floor of the building houses an excellent historic museum which tells the story of the origin of surfing. The original building is magnificent, and a definite favourite for Japanese brides. I saw at least six while I was there for the final three days of my holiday.Read more

    Diamond Head Crater

    January 7 in the United States

    Aufgrund von Sanierungsmaßnahmen ist der Krater von Mo-Fr geschlossen. Deshalb hat unser erster geplanter Besuch am Fr nicht geklappt.
    Wir sind wieder mit dem „TheBus“ angereist, dieser hält ausserhalb des Kraters dann noch Kurz den Hügel rauf und durch den Tunnel dann ist man auch schon drin. Eintritt sind $1 p.P. Der Weg ist unübersehbar, es gibt nämlich nur einen und auf dem laufen gefühlt 10000 Menschen, richtig überlaufen. 1,6km den Berg rauf, durch kleine enge Tunnel und steile Treppen mit Gegenverkehr bis zum Aussichtspunkt. Dort aufgrund von Gedränge schnell das Foto gemacht und nichts wie weg. Katastrophe, aber☝️, an sich eine super Aussicht über Waikiki Beach und Honolulu.
    Zu Fuss sind wir dann südlich vom Krater am Strand entlang zurück zum Hotel, hier stehen die Häuser der schönen und reichen. Zwischendurch haben wir dann noch den Hawaiianischen Regen abbekommen, der eigentlich nur ein starker Niesel ist und überhaupt nicht stört sondern eher erfrischend ist 😋 und dann noch dieser Regenbogen🤩
    Heute ist Strand nachmittag 😍, also Handtuch geholt und ab auf den völlig überfüllten Waikiki Beach🙈 👎 und dann lässt uns auch noch die Sonne im stich und verschwindet hinter den Wolken.
    Schei** Tag🤫😏
