My Time in Hawaii :)

Since I arrived in Hawaii in January I’ve done a lot of exploring around the Island.  I’ve been to Lanikai beach an Kailua, the gorgeous beaches of North shore as well as the East side of the islands–Makapu’u and Waimanalo!

Not only have I been doing activities around Oahu, for my 21st birthday and over spring break my parents joined me on a birthday extravaganza to Kauai! It was amazing.  We hiked the Kalalau trail, took a catamaran boat ride over to the forbidden island Niihau and did a Helicopter ride among many other things! The helicopter ride was awesome. It went all over the island and I don’t believe i’ve ever seen so many waterfalls in my whole life 🙂 Pure beauty.

Last weekend over Easter break I spent some time with a couple new friends from work! We went mud riding and it was awesome climbing up dirt hills and off roading to Secret Beach. Upon our arrival to the beach we all hung out and barbecued. Pictured below is my friend Cindy and I in the back of the jeep on the way to Secret Beach!

This was my first Easter I haven’t spent with my family so it was nice that I got to spen it with my neighbors whom I’ve become very close with–“My Hawaii Family <3” We went to a skate demo in chinatown and then cooked steak for dinner!

Another fun thing that I got to do while I was here was go to the water park wet n wild in Kapolei! EVERYONE SHOULD GO! It was so fun, I felt like a little kid again running aroud to each water slide 🙂 I’m definitely enjoying my time in Hawaii and I’m trying to do as much as I can do before my time is up!!

Hey guys this is my first time posting! I just wanted to tell everyone that they should definitely do the Pillbox hike in Lanikai, it is gorgeous and it didn’t take that long.  At the top you have a beautiful view of lanikai beach and the two magic islands :). Also at the top are old world war 2 bunkers that are pretty neat!

Me on top of the bunker :)

I went this past sunday and after the hike I got a guacomole, bacon and cheeseburger from Teddy’s and a smoothie from Jamba Juice! After that I went to the Lanikai beach and layed out for a little, however, it started to rain s I had to head back home 🙂
