Flashback Friday: Hawaii
|November 26, 2011||Posted by Sweet Tooth Runner under Flashback Friday|
Happy Friday and weekend! Last week, my twin Tara posted a Flashback Friday post, so I thought I’d join her this week for a fun Friday post!
This past summer I went to Hawaii and San Francisco for a fornight, and it was one of the best times of my life. This week I thought I’d revisit the Hawaii part of my trip! If you want to see what I ate when I was in Hawaii, you can check out my WIAW Hawaii edition post. I loved all the food I had there!
Hawaii was unbelievably beautiful.
Beautiful, but deadly.
I braved those dangers though for sights like these though…
Running in Hawaii meant VERY early starts to avoid the crazy heat! But the mornings were so beautiful and quiet that I didn’t mind one bit
The days were spent hiking…
…trying to find giant turtles…
Completely oblivious to the one about two feet away from me!
…and just generally being classic tourists:
Uncanny similarty there between myself and the statue, right?
Evenings were spent on the beach usually, watching the gorgeous sunsets.
Hula shows on the beach were awesome
I LOVED beach time! I would sometimes get up early and head down to the beach when it was nice and quiet just to read in the sun! And work on my tan
I am naturally tanned by the way (I’m half Indian!) so that’s not from laying out in the sun for two weeks straight haha!
I was so grateful for all the quality time I spent with my family. We aren’t all together very often, so when we are, it’s a blessing!
It was probably the best two weeks of my life. I’m feeling all nostalgic now…I want to go back!!
What was the best trip you’ve ever had? This one I think! But DisneyWorld was pretty awesome too…
If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you go? Back to Hawaii and San Francisco! Or to New York to see my family
Do you tan easily? Yep, but then I do have a slight advantage anyway haha!
