What’s nice about going in the Fall is that there are often some really good deals on flights from the mainland West Coast. As a result, I usually go to Hawaii in the fall. Our accommodations weren’t too expensive either (see next section), so really the biggest expense we faced was the rental car. Although I would have liked to forego the car, I love the freedom that comes with being able to drive anywhere, any time, so it was worth the cost.
The first time I ever went to Hawaii, I chose Kauai. Having done my research, I knew I would be absolutely enchanted with the beautiful garden island, and it didn’t disappoint. If you’re thinking about going to Hawaii and you haven’t decided which island you want to visit first, you should know that each one is unique and offers something different. Depending on your personality and what you want to get out of your trip, you’ll want to choose different islands. Personally, Kauai fits me like a glove.
Two things you should know about me: I live in San Diego, California. I do NOT surf.
All in all I wouldn’t say it was my finest moment.
Every year, millions of people visit the Hawaiian islands of Oahu, Kauai, Maui, and the Big Island. Some visitors even make it to Lanai and Molokai.However, there’s another island in the chain that has always fascinated me, and that is the island of Ni’ihau. It is known by many as the “forbidden island” due to the fact that it is privately owned and not open to the public.
It’s another Wanderlust Wednesday and today I’m dreaming of Tahiti. Honestly, the word wanderlust itself draws up images of gorgeous Tahitian beaches. The two words Wanderlust and Tahiti are almost synonymous.
It’s Wanderlust Wednesday again, and today we’re transported to the South Pacific nation of New Zealand. This destination has long been high on my list of places to see (I’ll get there someday, I will!).
Today was our last full day in Kauai, and as predicted, I have shed a few tears at having to leave this place.
Today was a wonderful, mellow day. We headed down to Poipu Beach for a little bit of rest and relaxation. After finding ourselves a nice, sunny, sandy place on the beach to plop down, we took a quick dip in the beautiful, mild waters of the South shore. 2 sea turtles were swimming near the shore, so we took some time to watch them for a little while as they ate the kelp that grew near shore.
Yesterday was a fun-packed day. First we headed over to the Poipu area to check out a few things. There was a shopping center that advertised dining, shopping, and art. We wanted to see what was in there so we walked around a bit. The stores and restaurants weren’t that interesting, but they had many beautiful plants that I went around photographing.
