Diamond Head

The views from atop Diamond head are so BLUE! The amazing views of Waikiki from way up here are some of the best. It totally puts everything into perspective and if you are staying in a near by hotel, you just might be able to spot your room :P

California

This winter break Rashawn and I got to experience California Living! I have probably been to the state 10 times but this was the first trip I got to explore on my own and move around! We started in LA and went to San Francisco and ended in New Port Beach! It is so much fun to travel at this age, and especially with your best friend. Experiencing things together makes the trips more memorable and way more fun!

Pacific Coast Highway

It is safe to say I have a thing for coastal drives. Between my Island Tour of Oahu, driving the Road To Hana, or the Piliani Highway and now the Pacific Coast Highway: oceanside is the place to be. The drives are so amazing because who doesn't sit in awe of the amazing coasts we have?! The drive its self is so beautiful and there is actually so much to do on the way! We will be back because we didn't get to see and do all we wanted!

Nashville

Nashville, Tennessee home to the honky tonk tunes, southern food, and of course those good southern feels! I have been to Tennessee quite a few times to visit my Omi and Opi, and usually our trips to Nashville include a great lunch and a trip to Opry Mills Mall. But this time I got a chance to explore the city!

Parthenon

There is so much to see and do in Tennessee from eating all the delicious southern food or dancing to the country music a lot of people don't realize it is also home to a full size replica of the ancient Greece Parthenon!  It is so beautiful and so cool to bask in its massiveness!

Camping at Haleakala

Imagine waking up to the sounds of waves crashing and the golden sunlight warming your skin through your tent window all while sitting on a cliff overlooking Maui's ocean. Let me tell you: it's true paradise. While in Maui, after driving the Road to Hana our plan was to camp at Haleakala National Park. I orginally got this idea from saving money rather than staying at the Hana Hotel. Once we arrived in Maui our shuttle driver told me that same "imagine..." and I was so excited for my camping experience!

Road To Hana

Twin Falls is a great way to start the trip! With fruit stands and banana bread stands it's a nice place to start and get breakfast! Not only that but a very short walk will take you to the twin falls! I did the Road To Hana in the Winter, so flooding and muddy water is almost unavoidable! During the summer season you can swim and hang out in these falls which are blue then! Make sure you bring some old tennis shoes in the Winter because the path was pretty muddy!

Piilani Highway

Besides the actual Road to Hana, the road out of Hana was my second favorite thing about Maui. The Piilani Highway was also unlike any drive I have ever been on! It felt like we were driving through every climate from Rainforest, to the African dessert, to Rocky Mountains, the Piilani Highway will show you it all. A lot of people drive to Hana and turn around and drive out but I promise you if you keep chugging on you will not regret it!

Maui Ocean Center

While on Maui we decided to check out the Maui Ocean Center because we were told it was the best Aquarium on all of the islands! I can defiantly say it was better than Oahu's sadly, you would think for such a tropical place the aquarium would be great, but I guess they let the oceans do all the showing off :)

Maui

MAUI IS A DREAM// If it isn't already on your travel list you need to add it now! It was the most beautiful island, I mean everywhere I looked was a gorgeous view. Not to mention the Hawaiian Roller Coster Ride on the Road to Hana. There are so many beautiful beaches, great camp sites, and countless valleys, mountains, and waterfalls to explore. A true dreamland.

Waimanalo

The bluest of blues water and the whitest of white sand is what you get on the voted number on beach on Oahu. Waimanlo is on the east side heading North towards Lankiai beach. The water is so blue and relaxing you can float out there for hours! Many people bring floaties and fins and play all day.

Koko Crater Arch

If you like something challenging, adrenalin pumping, and gorgeous views then you defiantly need to check out Koko Crater Arch! The attraction is located on the East Side of Oahu, sort of above Cockroach Cove! The 'trail' begins on the left side of the mountain over the railing.

Three Tables

She says she loves the North Shore...but can you blame her? Stopping at any beach on the North Shore is a good idea, but especially in the summertime. When I first saw Pupukea, or more popularly known as Three Tables, it was in the Winter and it was covered with big waves and foam. Every now and then I would see people snorkeling out their and I would always be so scared for them that I big wave was just gonna sweep them away.

Island Tour: Oahu

Welcome to the Island of Oahu, Hawaii! Home to over ONE MILLION people. Our little island is only 40 miles wide (thats the distance of home to Boulder for all my friends) and only 112 miles around. So really you can get around the island pretty easily and in basically no time...oh wait remember the part of ONE MILLION people? We're a bit over populated here on Oahu so our traffic happens to be the second worst behind LA, California! So this little island trip will take a good 5 hours to a potential day depending on the number and duration of your stops. I recommend starting as early as possible and finishing as late as possible! This way you can spend good time at each location and really enjoy everything there is to offer, because although small we have so much to give here!

Sandy Tidepools

Sandy's beach is one of our go to beaches here because you can easily see people you know or play in the shore break. But one of my favorite secretive places is the little Tidepool here. If you walk on the right side of the beach towards the bowl hole you will come across tons of beautiful fun little spots in the rocks.

Parasailing

Oh the feeling of floating in the sky above the ocean...and this view sure helps too! I love Parasailing and have done it twice now. The first was in Maiami, Flordia and the second here in Honolulu, Hawaii. If I get the chance I will Parasail over every ocean city. The view and experience is so blissful! Except the part when the captains think its funny to dunk you in for shark bait!
