Helicopter ride

Hawaii has become something of an annual tradition since our very first visit to the Aloha State back in 2014.

That first visit together was actually my first visit, period — a bit of a rarity for a Los Angeles local. I’ve always preferred snow over surf when it comes to vacation destinations, but I think I might be slowly changing my tune (largely because bikinis > parkas).

When I was searching through my computer for pictures of Hanauma Bay, I came across all the other adventures we’ve had on Oahu to date. A helicopter ride, ziplining, stand-up paddle boarding in Waikiki, North Shore, and a sobering trip to Pearl Harbor. It all happened pre-blog, but half the fun of making memories is reliving them again later…

Aulani

Hi, Aulani! It’s the brown behemoth of a thing, with the pools, water slides, and manmade lagoon. Four Seasons is next door.

Hanauma Bay, again.

ziplin

We did our ziplining adventure through a company called CLIMB Works on Keana Farm in the northern tip of Oahu. They were super professional, and it was all kinds of fun — would definitely recommend.

It’s on my bucket list to visit the other Hawaiian Islands at some point — Kauai, Maui, the Big Island. Everyone says we’re “missing out” by sticking to Oahu, but it’s so very hard to stray when you know all this beauty is here waiting for you.
