Hawaii Trip


Hawaii is pretty magical. Last week was my second trip to the island of Oahu. Since I went last year, around the same time, I researched a little more of exactly what I wanted to do while I was there. At the top of my list was a spectacular view from the top of Honolulu. This trip I definitely feel like I took advantage of my time there and we even got to stay an extra day and a half because of the blizzard that hit the northeast. 

The first day we got there we hiked to the top of Kuliouou Ridge Trail which was amazing! It took us about 3 hours and we almost wanted to quit because it was so steep but the view from the top (which you can see below) was well worth it. Later on that night I went to see Cash Cash play a sold out show at TheRepublik which was fun!The second day our friend RP at Hans Hedemann Surf School took us out surfing in Waikiki. RP is the man! I've never surfed before in my life and got up the first time and every time after that. While surfing, another amateur rider hit me with his board and I ended up having to go to the local ER to get 4 stitches. It wasn't too bad and we made it in time to see our friend Halsey perform at The Republik too.  

The next day we were supposed to leave but got stuck due to the blizzard happening in New York. We rented a car and decided to find another cool hike to do. We drove down to the southeast part of the island where we found the Halona Blowhole and decided to attempt to hike to the Koko Crater Arch. The hike is off the side of the highway and isn't technically open to the public but we couldn't resist. The views were spectacular and unlike anything I had ever seen before. It was definitely another highlight of my trip. My birthday happened to be on this night and we had some amazing sushi at Nobu
The last day of our trip was spent at Hanauma Bay where we went snorkeling. I had never been before but it was beautiful. I read this week there was an influx of jellyfish so I'm glad we didn't run into any there. I can't wait to go back again... hopefully Maui next time :)
