The time has come to share my Hawaii pics! I’ve decided to do it through the eyes of my Instagram–but I’ve also included some shots that I haven’t yet shared–so don’t go thinking you’ve “seen it all” already. Plus, you wouldn’t want to miss out on my behind-the-scenes narration… So, ready to visit Hawaii with me?!
This was the first day I arrived in Honolulu. I literally dumped my suitcase in my room, at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, and jumped right into the ocean!
These are the bathroom signs I saw in numerous places throughout the island. They made me smile, so I figured I’d share
I was very adventurous this trip! I kayaked in a lagoon, I paddle boarded, I went snorkeling, and I even went in a shark cage!
Every day started off with Starbucks and ended with a sunset on the beach–now THAT’s my idea of a vacation.
This is the Koi pond that I dropped my phone into (right as I was taking this picture!) None of the stores nearby had any rice to soak it in (that helps dry it out) so I ran into a sushi restaurant and got some sushi rice! Thankfully, my phone survived
This was the day I went to Sea Life Park, where I met dolphins, birds, sharks, and seals. Honestly, I was definitely more afraid of the birds than I was of the sharks!
(This is a totally fake smile. Trying to remain calm.)
My last morning on the island, I took some last beachside photos, threw on my leggings, and headed to the airport. I got back to New York the same day that Juno (that blizzard) was scheduled to hit, so I had to open my suitcase at baggage claim and do a full wardrobe change before stepping out into the snow.
All in all, my week in Hawaii was literally the trip of a lifetime. Thanks for allowing me to share it with you guys!! (And shoutout to this sleeping dude next to me on the plane–no, I don’t know him, lol)
