Here I am with my mini me on Waikiki Beach. We were taking a stroll, heading to the Honolulu Zoo. I’ll share pics from the zoo trip on a later post. We had so much fun at the zoo that it deserves it’s own post.
One thing I kind of expected but wasn’t fully prepared for was the color in Hawaii. The colors are so vibrant. The blues are bluer, the greens are greener, the pinks are . . .well, you get my point.
We stayed at the Royal Hawaiian on Waikiki Beach. It is a gorgeous hotel with shops, restaurants and pools. Waikiki Beach is literally right outside the doors.
I stayed in the Mailani Tower, which includes even more perks. There are complimentary breakfasts, appetizers and cocktails. Plus the rooms have balconies.
This is the view from my balcony. I know, pinch me!
It was gorgeous. I loved sitting out on the balcony early in the morning while I enjoyed my coffee. Perfection.
There were shops, restaurants and shows right next to the Royal Hawaiian. This photo was taken during a traditional Hawaiian dance show. Me and the kiddo enjoyed the show while digging into some shave ice.
Our favorite treat! Shave ice with boba and mochi . . . So Good. That alone was worth a five hour flight!
Stay tuned for more about our Hawaiian adventure. . .5
