Goodbye Hawaii, until next time

Before the Goodbye and nostalgic summary of my feelings for Hawaii and its islands let me talk about our last few precious days here in paradise (my paradise at least). Like other days ,we enjoyed a big breakfast, this morning in Cinnamons in Kailua. Tucked away, in a very grungy/run down small mall is this... Continue Reading →


Pineapples, Rainforest, Surf and chill – North Shore Oahu

  After an easy breakfast we took Highway 3 over to Honolulu and then up on the 99 to the Dole Pineapple Plantation. Its all about pineapples here, even the ice cream cones come with a pineapple chunk instead of a chocolate flake!! We had two goals in mind when visiting, one was the train... Continue Reading →

Waikiki Amnesia, BBQ, and Diving

If you want a painting, or sculpture with a maritime or natural theme, this is definitely the place to come. I wanted loads of things, from Sculptures depicting Hammerheads swimming around coral heads or... Continue Reading →

Maui and its beauty

We decided to fly with Hawaiian Airlines. We'd flown with them before interisland and they were fun then. They were no fun this time. I really hoped that the feeling of being in Hawaii would begin as soon as i stepped off the gangway and onto the plane, but no, it was just like any... Continue Reading →
