Hawaii is an epic, beautiful, friendly, majestic place. Many people dream of going but never make it happen. Others go all out and make it a once in a lifetime trip! We took our first trip to Hawaii together for our first wedding anniversary back in 2015, and we chose O’ahu so we could visit Pearl Harbor and relax on one of the most famous beaches in the world—Waikiki!
“Packing is my favorite part of travel!” –said no one ever! It’s not my favorite thing either, and I’m literally a professional packer!
Hawaii has some of the most beautiful hiking in the world, and Steve and I have been fortunate enough to explore a lot of them on our trips to the islands! With O’ahu being the most populated and most visited of the islands, you won’t likely have a trail to yourself here, but you will definitely be rewarded with epic views and lush landscapes.
I’m dreaming of beautiful Hawaii. I have a few friends planning trips to O’ahu this year, so I decided I need to create some “know before you go” material for this beautiful, historic, iconic island to help them–and perhaps YOU!–plan the perfect O’ahu getaway!
My husband and I needed a relaxing trip for our first anniversary, and we decided an island would probably be just the right pace to help us slow down and soak in the happiness of our first year of marriage. This is the trip that convinced us to take an easy-going island trip for our anniversary every year!
Aloha on this What I Ate Wednesday! This week we’re coming at you from O’ahu, Hawaii, where Steve and I spent our first anniversary. This is the tale of the many island delicacies we enjoyed on our trip!
