I am currently enjoying my last week off before I start my new job –I am so ready to start working again. The past two weeks, since I found out I got the job, have been dragging on and on. Before, searching for a job, applications and job interviews kept me busy for at least part of the day but now I have way too much time on my hands and there is only so much daytime television one person can cope with.
So, time to recap our short stay on Oahu during our honeymoon in February. It’s already been two months – hard to believe! We spent three days in Waikiki before we flew to Maui for a week. Waikiki felt completely different from Maui – this entire part of Honolulu is filled with high-rise hotels and so. many. tourists. We also didn’t have a hire car while we were on Oahu, so we weren’t able to venture out too far.
It was amazing to see the beautiful nature Oahu offers and we really enjoyed the warm weather and sunshine there. After spending two days trying to see as much as we could of San Francisco, we really enjoyed slowing down a little and taking it easy while we were in Waikiki. I wish we had had more time to see a bit more of the island but it was a lovely three days.
On our last day there, we took a trolley tour that took us along the south coast of Oahu and we saw some stunning places such as Hanauma Bay and Halona Blowhole where we saw whales for the first time.
We also went on a trolley tour of Honolulu and visited the Diamond Head State Monument although we did not hike up to the top.
We managed to catch a free torch lighting and hula ceremony while we were in Waikiki and saw fireworks on the beach on our last night.
