America 2011, Aloha Hawaii

Our final stop for our 4 week America trip – Hawaii! Honolulu was fantastic to visit, easy to get around and the locals were incredibly friendly. My sister and I had great fun learning to surf with Hawaii Fire and Surf, and we got to relax and wind down before heading back to Australia. I would say if you’re planning to do a La’au, don’t. Seemed overrated in my opinion – you’d be better off visiting a cultural centre or learning to hula in one of the free classes that are given if you’re interested in the culture.

We got lucky and managed to see a festival while we were in Honolulu which was great fun. Lots of music and people – and the food stalls were great! Would definitely go back again, and would love to see the lava flows and Big Island.


  • What we did: 5 days spent relaxing and enjoying the sights around Honolulu
