I fell in love with Hawaii from the moment we got in our car and drove towards the city of Honolulu. Since I was a little girl i wanted to visit the Island chain in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. It was exactly like I hoped it would be- even better.
Arriving at Waikiki beach we enjoyed the calm Hawaiian music, people dancing and the sight of flaming torches everywhere. I was so happy i finally was here, and could not wait to get up the next morning and explore.
We got up before sunrise every morning of this 12 days vacation. Don´t know what happened, but i guess there was a mix between jetlag and the joy over being in such a paradise. Waikiki is the perfect place to taking a jog and doing your workout routine, all while watching the gorgeous sunrise over Diamond head Volcano.
Being in Hawaii there is a must to do a hike up at least one of the amazing volcanoes that surrounds the islands. We started with Kokohead Volcano, and did not regret it. The wiev from the top was so beautiful it was almost impossible to comprehend. And to be on top of a vulcano that big is just WOW!
We spent the afternoon in Hanauma Bay. A gorgeous place, who is declared a protected marine life conservation area and underwater park. Formed within a volcanic cone and with the most amazing coral reef full of colorful fishes, Hanauma Bay was like a paradise to me and André. We snorkeled and swam for hours until our tongues was light blue from the temperature in the water. It was totally worth it!
After a long day of activities there is nothing like enjoying the warmth from the golden sunset over the incredible paradise of Hawaii.
