HAWAII

ALOHA

Last March I went to Hawaii for a family vacation I had no idea as to what it would be like except for it being an island. As soon as I landed and went to my accomodation, I had the time from there to venture around the city of Honolulu in Hawaii to see what its like, I thought right away that it was paradise. For the next ten days when we were there, I was occupied myself on a daily basis with activities.

Everyday was enjoyable for me! There was always something to do, whether it was going to the beach, walking down the strip of shops, going to the markets or catching a bus which stopped at many sights to see. There was nothing that you couldn’t do and that’s what made it so good, I would highly recommend travelling to Hawaii to anyone because it’s one of my favourite destinations!

I’ll leave some information about Honolulu for you all & photos from my trip even though I wish I had captured even more photos!

It depends on how you spend your days over in Hawaii although money does add up quite quick while you’re over there. On average I would say 100 AUD a day is enough.
