Waikiki Unplanned - Part 1


Our first few days in Waikiki have been perfect. We planed nothing and did whatever came to mind first. It's been a while since we've travelled this way, and I must say, it's been awesome. A few days ago I shared a blog post about all the things I didn't do in the lead up to my trip over here. One of them included not over planning. Whenever I've tried to cram too many things onto my travel list, I always end up disappointed when three or four things have to fall off the edge because of time constraints. This time, we've experienced a great mix of places we wanted to go back to and things we just happened to stumble upon.

Because the weather has been so warm and humid, I've foregone the usual soy flat white and replaced it with a daily iced coffee. Staying at the Hilton Hawaiian Village means we have easy access to two Starbucks locations; not my first choice for my coffee fix as they use sweetened soy milk, but it really tastes great in the iced latte version- and with a little caramel drizzle on top, it hits the spot every time.

With our coffee in hand, Kevin and I have spent the first portion of each day by the super pool and on the beach directly in front of the Hilton. The morning hours seemed to pass by so slowly while laying on the sand where the waves gently fall. For the first time in my beaching career, I've spent more time in the water than on the sand.

We've spent our afternoons and evenings lunching and snacking on whatever feels right at the time. Here's a snapshot...

Visit back again soon for the second instalment!
