Oahu, Hawaii

A week in paradise scaling dormant volcanoes, swimming with fishies, driving on the wrong side of the road and having the best time with great company. Many laughs, sweating, drinks and one liners for dicks!! Hana hou ohana! For more videos click here.

After a day of shopping at the Ala Moana mall, we went for an evening pre-dinner stroll along Waikiki followed by extra strong mojitos at Hard Rock.

Diamond Head Views

The next morning (after a 5am start to pick up an old friend during which we got to know Honolulu International Airport very well….3 strikes Miiiichel), we conquered Diamond Head and were rewarded with beautiful views

We're On Top Of The World!

We climbed a total of 54 floors this hike, up stairs and through a bunker with peek-a-boo views of Waikiki

The Summit

Views of Hanauma Bay

Road tripping with the homies up to the North Shore, the waves were too strong for any safe swimming but it was fun watching the locals and experienced swimmers take on the waves

Birthday Girl

We loved Buho, a yummy Mexican restaurant that had a roof top bar and live music nightly, with a special birthday dedication song (or 4) to our gal (and other birthday goers!). The live music at our hotel (Embassy Suites Waikiki Beachwalk) was also excellent accompanied by free drinks and nibbles every night. Alas all great trips must come to an end, and with the exception of Jetstar’s delays, it was just such a good holiday 😀 love y’all xoxo
