Hawaiian Getaway



Jumped the rock at Waimea


Hiked to Sacred Falls

Mopeded around the east side


Took a dip with sharks



Picture overload! What's better than being in paradise with your favorite people? Even if it was only for 5 days, we really soaked this one up. I hadn't been back to Hawaii since I did a semester in Laie my freshman year of college (7 years ago) and Joel had never been to Oahu so we wanted to show him the island. We broke up the trip, visiting my little sister on the rural North Shore and hit up the local spots, then stayed with older my sister in Honolulu and ended the trip at the Moana Surfrider on the Waikiki strip for a couple nights. Heaven.

As much as I'm a big fan of cultural traveling and trips off the beaten track, I've realized that sometimes its just nice to be a full blown tourist and live the American dream at a packed resort in good ole Waikiki. I was able to read book one + two of the Hunger Games, catch up with my sisters and have plenty of pina coladas. 
Take me back!
