My earliest memory of Hawaii was as a young girl walking through the markets. I met a lovely lady who called me a pretty young thing and proceeded to offer to paint my nails for me. She painted palm trees and a sunset on my nails….it blew my mind!
I’m pretty excited to be back in this tropical slice of paradise and kind of surprised at how little I actually remember (mind you it’s been a few years). So far my holiday has been exactly that….a holiday. Waikiki really is the perfect place to unwind and relax whether you are single, a couple or a family there is something for everyone!
The long beach line wraps around a bay and is a playground for sun lovers and surfers! As an Aussie gal, I’ve taken many moments of joy in giggling at the “surfers” heading out to catch some of the smallest waves I’ve ever seen! Apparently there are different coastlines for real surfing. I certainly hope so as the surf at Waikiki leaves little to be desired! It looks like a good training ground though and luckily for me, surf is the last thing on my mind this holiday.
Being a first time traveller with children, I am amazed at how much my travelling requirements have changed, and I can say Waikiki is a great spot for first time families!
