Dreaming in Oahu

Dreaming in Oahu

One winter evening, probably after seeing beautiful photos of the place on Instagram, I texted my friend Roshella that I wanted to go Hawaii... next thing I know we are on a plane on our way! Although you can't really go wrong with any of the Hawaiian islands, we thought Oahu would be a great first trip both foodwise and hikewise (our main priorities☺). And yep, the food was sooo good (we bookmarked so many mouthwatering places on Yelp beforehand–haha) and the hikes were incredible. It did rain a lot of the time we were there, I think we brought it from Seattle, but even then the island was perfect. The trip seemed to end so quick and now it just feels like a really, really good dream.

Our hotel, the Surfjack in Waikiki. 10/10 recommend, the nicest staff and minimalist decor with cute details!

My first meal on the island was of course poke, yummm :)

The path on our first hike, Diamond Head. It quickly turned into a semi-steep dirt path, not too difficult though, even after a 5.5 hour flight!

The next day we did the Lanikai Pillbox Hike. Harder than Diamond Head (and a farther drive from Waikiki) but the views were surreal. The water was so blue even with cloudy skies!!!

Post-hike we walked to an overcast Lanikai beach.  Still gorgeous even in the rain.

We spent the evening at one of the Ko Olina lagoons. Surprisingly pretty vacant on a Saturday.

While on Oahu, visiting the North Shore is a must. Picturesque beaches, gigantic waves and plenty of yummy food truck options!

Our last night in Hawaii... we fast-walked/jogged to the beach after our waterfall hike to see this sky!
