Postcard from… Hawaii

ALOHA! Hawaii has certainly put it on. Turquoise blue waters, sunny skies and buzzing atmosphere.

My first Hawaiian experience was riding a wave into Waikiki Beach on an outrigger canoe boat.Love love loved this!

Our next day took us to the North Eastern side of Oahu where we explored some little surfing villages along the north shore coastline including Hale’iwa.

We then ventured to Maui where we jumped straight into a helicopter and were taken to the most spectacular valleys, waterfalls, towering cliffs and the famous Kalaupapa Peninsula.

We then hit the water, where we snorkled over Molokini Crater. The water was amazing, clear and full of colourful sea life. This was a great day!

After all that swimming we walked some of the board walk along the Ka’anapali coastline, walking from one resort to another, smelling the amazing aromas from all the restaurants.It was only appropriate that we stopped off at a couple of bars and sampled the many cocktails including my favourte Mai Tai’s, and the local beers.

My trip certainly ended with some holiday adrenalin, having completed eight lines on the Skyline Ka’anapali Zipline.Although I was scared for my life, I deep down actually enjoyed it. And how could I not, the views were just amazing from up there. Mahalo Hawaii!
