This recent trip to North America has been the second time that I have ever flown on my own to the other side of the world. With the first being my trip to Europe last year. Why go alone at all, you might ask?
Well. There was always someone out there who couldn’t go whenever I’d asked because of either time, money or conflicting interests. That was when I decided that it wasn’t worth it to just sit around and wait for others in order for you to start chasing your dreams. So instead, I decided to go see the world on my own. And thus begins the recount of my amazing few weeks abroad..
So despite not getting as much sleep as I would have hoped on the 10 hour red-eye from Melbourne to Honolulu – I did manage to make a new friend onboard, get through the first half dozen episodes of Daredevil, and even witnessed the sighting of my first ever shooting star up close against the pitch-black sky. Not a bad start, in my opinion.
They don’t call it the land of rainbows for nothing!
I’ve been dreaming of visiting Hawaii for quite a while now, and couldn’t think of a better way to start off my very first visit to The States than by spending a week in the land of constant rainbows! 😀 And for anyone who was ever contemplating a visit to Hawaii – I say DO IT!
Despite its (sometimes) brutal humidity, Hawaii has fast become one of my most favourite places on Earth! The palm trees, the beaches, the ABC stores (you’ll see when you get here!), the rainbows splattered across every licence plate and even on the sides of buses, the people, the spirit of Aloha, and the food. OH GOD the food. I’m almost convinced that most of my weight gain were from those first few days alone in Hawaii.
I have a lot of fond memories from my time in Honolulu – some of which included doing a hike that was technically off-limits, having the best omakase experience of my life, driving from one side of the island to the other and learning how to free dive all within the span of a few days!
Over the next week or so, I will be posting more about where to eat on the island, what to do, and maybe even give you guys a sneak peek into the hidden gems that Oahu has to offer! So stay tuned 😉 x
