Photo Diary: Looking back on my first Hawaii trip in 2012!

 

It was precisely between Christmas and entering the New Year in 2012 when very cheap airfare sales made me hastily decide to visit Hawaii for the very first time with my sister in tow. Both excited and eager to visit a new country, we left a mere few weeks later with 9 days to explore Oahu..and with only 9 days we managed to squeeze a lot in!!

Although we stayed in Waikiki throughout our entire stay, we did book various day trips to see more of Oahu (north shore, pearl harbour etc) as well as a massively long (but fantastic) trip over to the Big Island. The Big Island is an incredible island and I was so happy to have experienced a totally different side to Hawaii I wouldn’t have seen otherwise. The island is far less touristy and congested than Oahu and it is here you can get up close and personal with volcanoes!

 

WE LOVED YOU HAWAII!!

Here are some pics from Oahu and the Big Island I dug up from years ago…

I have since been back to Hawaii in 2015 and spent longer and stayed on both Maui and Kauai – which I absolutely loved! You can check out my other Hawaii posts here.
